Broken Dark - Science fiction/crime space opera

Hi all,

I've finally taken the plunge and become a fully fledged 'indie author'! I've just published the first episode of what will be a long running space opera about a second Prohibition in space after humans have colonised the galaxy.

The series is called Broken Dark and each novella is written as if it is an episode of a television series. He Who Fights and Runs Away (Season One, Episode One) is available for download from Amazon (UK; US) and Smashwords now! It will be available from all other major ebook retailers soon!

To celebrate its release, Episode One can be downloaded for FREE from Smashwords, in most major e-reader formats! Please redeem the coupon code WB86S when purchasing your copy (the offer is available until 06/07/2014)!

600 years from now, mankind has left Earth behind. The Milky Way is filled with seed colonies and teems with human life. Yet despite all our advances in science, we have yet to surpass our most primal natures. We carried all of our greed, wars and decadences with us into the stars and our far flung worlds are every bit as dangerous as Earth is now.

Lord Alasdair Donaghue, Duke of the British Stellar Dalcross Systems, has tried to remedy this with a second war on alcohol. But just as bootleggers emerged in the United States of America in the 1920’s, Prohibition has opened the door for criminals to grow rich once again. Famed for her resourceful and ruthless nature, Lisa Tant is one such smuggler. She has grown bold and confident with her ever growing infamy and it is on Calgany Space Station that she faces her reckoning. Betrayed by someone in her own crime syndicate, Tant finds herself the focus of the Alcohol Enforcement Agency and must flee the space station with her crew, cut off from her ship with seemingly nowhere to run.
