Kickstarter Flight Plan: The Story

kickstarter flight plan week 2 the story

The scoop: if you’re not familiar with the Parse Galaxy, I’m going to lay it out for you here. Don’t forget to follow the project on Kickstarter so you’ll know the minute it launches! 

A flight map of a spaceship looping through a busy galaxy. The second star reads THE STORY; that's where we are today.

The fate of the galaxy? That sounds stressful.

That is the kind of problem best left to the soldiers. The politicians. The people who know stuff.

Sloane Tarnish knows plenty of stuff. Unfortunately, it’s not the kind of stuff that’ll do the galaxy any good. She’s used to the kind of shots you drink, not the ones you fire off because there’s an enemy on your tail. 

But in a bizarre twist of what-the-freaking-hell, her outlaw uncle inexplicably ditches his spaceship, along with his misfit crew. Which wouldn’t be Sloane’s issue, except that he also locked the spaceship to her DNA. If she doesn’t approve the next destination, Moneymaker stays put.

She never wanted a spaceship. She still doesn’t. But she can’t get back to her real life until she finds her uncle.

Problem 1: the ship’s too broken to leave the most dangerous system in the galaxy, where a recent power vacuum is turning the place into one orbiting cluster of fugitives, thugs, and swindlers.

Problem 2: when she sets her sights on a bounty with a reward that will solve all her problems, the Commander of the Galactic Fleet himself shows up in pursuit of the same man. The last thing Sloane needs is to get tangled in a web of galactic politics–but she won’t let her prize go, either. The payoff is just too big to give up.

But as dangers close in on all sides, she can’t help wondering if she’ll live to claim her prize…

What Reviewers Say: 

★★★★★ If Firefly and Star Trek collided, creating an alternate universe, it would probably look a lot like this. -BookBub reviewer on the Parse Galaxy series (Bounty War)

★★★★★ With madcap schemes abound and a really cute burgeoning amore between our two MCs, I was hooked! -BookBub reviewer on Book 1, Chaos Zone

★★★★★ This was an action packed, unputdownable Space Opera. –BookBub reviewer on Book 1, Chaos Zone

This week’s update: 

The prototypes are in, and they are BEAUTIFUL. I’m going to film a tour/preview this week, so keep an eye on this space for an extra post 🙂 The hardcover is particularly gorgeous. I can’t explain the rush of seeing my books in a hardcover like this, with a lovely dust jacket and everything. And the paperback looks fantastic, too! It’s a great big book worthy of spreading across your lap and diving into. I’m SO happy with how they came out.
