The saga of the Starduster was a fun novel to create.
TW loved creating stories as a child. Having no idea that the bed time stories, created on the fly, would ever amount to anything. Thinking back on my youth, I often wonder what it would be like to travel back in time knowing what you know now, but still in your child body.
The saga of the Starduster has a scene where our hero does just that through a fluke of alien technology and a lot of imagination from the author.
TW enjoyed crawling into the mind of Don as he is whisked off the international space station by an alien race who was shot at unbeknown to them by one of their foes. Thinking that the hostility emanated from the blue planet not far from them the captain with a name we cannot pronounce investigates.
That antics TW takes the readers through while the Captain is trying to figure out who or what is on this blue planet are hilarious. They use television broadcast to seek to determine what or who is on this planet and are they friendly.
TW references a scene from Sharknado among others. The Captain and the crew of the alien vessel see the shows and take an entirely different perspective.
As Don learns that he has Cancer, the alien doctor tells him that she has created a virus to attack his cancer cells but must sequester him as the virus is meant for his cancer which is unique to him.
The story takes on many twists and turns as you travel back in time with Don, who ends up in his third-grade class as a child with the mind of a fifty-year-old man.
Love blossoms as his crush on his teacher now play out in a very strange way.
Romance with an alien doctor on a space station light years from the Earth is just one of the highlights of The Saga of the Starduster.
This novel is quickly becoming one to watch as the downloads are picking up worldwide. I have not marketed it much at all. It is an inexpensive read with a surprise ending.
This novel is available on many e-book retailers including Amazon and Smashwords.
TW does not believe in sad endings, but your heart strings may be tugged at a little. For you, science fictions nuts like myself, this novel is not lite on science fiction.
TW’s wry sense of humor and wit are all through most of the stories with the brand TWScott, but especially in this one, you will see several examples of it.
So if you were Don and ended up sitting in front of your third-grade teacher now, what would you do? If you had a crush on your first or fifth, you pick her or him and then tell me, (us) what would you do?
I love the idea of it, so to me, it was a bonus for the novel.
Update! Since the novel has been selling rather well I went back and took a look at it. Finding a few typos I fixed them, added some text here and there and modified the cover art to include the phrase “Skinny Dipping on an alien world was probably not their best idea.”
If you want to get better at your craft practice practice practice! This novel just got better. It is updated on #amazon rev 3.1. Give them a few hours to approve it and then go and get your updated copy!
Much Love -TW
