The Captain Returns!

For the Sake of MercyCaptain Henri Duschelle, hero of To Sail The Dark Sea, has returned in a new tale.  This one, For the Sake of Mercy, is a novelette.  To quote the blurb:

Captain Henri Duschelle must lead his loyal crew on a seemingly impossible mission: to deliver a vital organ to one of the crew’s son, across the longest part of the colonised worlds – to an insane deadline. He is convinced that only his ship, the stunningly beautiful “Persephone” can make such a journey. But problems lie in wait…

Now for the significant part of this news!  I have been known to be less than admiring of Amazon and their business tactics, as far as self-publishing is concerned.  Well, I like to think that I am fair, so I have opted to publish this novelette through Amazon!  It is available for the Kindle machines in various countries, at the bargain price I’ve detailed against the links (price quoted is approximate).  This is very much an experiment!  I’ll be interested to see how things go.  Note that I did not opt to participate in the Kindle Select program as I dislike the restrictions that it imposes.  If you purchase and read the ebook, I would very much appreciate your feedback on Amazon!

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.
