After his heroic battle against the Deathlords on the Ghost Planet, Jack Finnegan is looking forward to arriving at Omnicron Prime, the capitol planet of the Galactic Regalus Empire -the largest and most advanced civilization in the universe.
Things are looking bright for Jack. He has his unconventional group of friends, his mystical spaceship, and the girl of his dreams -Princess Anna. Not to mention a secret mission that could save Earth and everyone he cares about.
But things get complicated when he arrives at Omnicron. Not only is Jack uncomfortable being thrust into the spotlight for his courageous actions to save the universe, but he soon finds life in the Empire isn’t everything he’d dreamed it would be.
His friends abandon him to pursue their own interests. Greedy and cunning politicians conspire to steal his spaceship. Even his relationship with Anna is strained now that she’s gone from being “the girl next door” to the most powerful woman in the universe.
But beneath all that lies a new and terrifying threat from the Deathlords. A threat that grows in secret, slowly spreading throughout the Regalus Empire like a plague, and it threatens to destroy from within the only thing powerful enough to stop the Deathlords and their malicious rampage throughout the galaxy -the Empire itself.
Worst of all -Jack is the only one who knows about this new threat, and no one will believe his warnings.
Suddenly, the Empire is no longer safe for Jack and his friends. Even the people they’ve come to rely on the most can no longer be trusted. As those he’s sworn to protect turn against him, how can Jack hope to save the day?
Fighting the Deathlords was one thing. Fighting the “good guys” is quite another. Will Jack be able to find the strength to be the hero the universe needs?
Or will he finally be defeated by this Secret Army?
Interview with the Author
1) Can you tell us a bit about your background?
I’d tell you, but then I’d have to kill you. And I’m trying to cut back on murder.
2) Where and when did your writing journey begin?
Long ago, in a faraway land. I met a wise old man who taught me my A-B-Cs, but neglected to teach me how to spell anything properly. Ever since I have wandered the Earth, searching for a mythical thing of legend called “Spell Check.” The closest I’ve found to it is called “autocorrect” but it hasn’t really solved my tissue issue.
3) Who are your favorite authors and how have they influenced your writing?
I’d tell you my influences, but then you’d know who I rip off, and I can’t afford another law suit right now. (I’m looking at you, Stephen King.)
4) What does a typical day in your life look like? And how does your writing routine fit into your day?
Well, when I’m not busy planning universal domination, watching videos of puppies on Youtube, and saving world leaders from international conspiracies, I like to solve murders in my spare time while hunting for long-lost treasure. Sometimes I find time to write in-between adventures… and when bills are due. Turns out being an international man of mystery doesn’t pay very well. Who knew?
5) How did you come up with the idea for your novel?
The inspiration came from a dream I had when I may or may not have been drunk. (and I’m always drunk!)
6) What do you think sets your novel apart from others currently on the shelves?
Whose shelves? My shelves? Because the books on my shelves are currently set apart by dust, outdated ipods, and copious amounts of vintage pornography.
7) Which character in your book is your favorite and how much of yourself is reflected in that character?
A robotic evil genius named Heckubus Moriarty. Since I am both evil AND a genius, it’s basically like I’m in my own books. If I’d written him to be incredibly good looking, it would have essentially been me.
8) Which scenes in your book did you have the most fun writing?
The ones where stuff blows up. I really like explosions.
9) What do you hope for your readers to take away after reading your book?
Nothing. What I have is mine and no one can take it away! My trusty shotgun says so. ‘Murca!
10) What are your hopes for this novel?
That it make me a lot of money so I can pursue my life-long dream of having a lot of money.
11) What do you have in store next for your readers?
An overly-elaborate slow moving death trap. Oh, and hopefully more books. But mostly death traps.
