Indie Book of the Month - Voidhawk

It's that time again, folks. The first of the month has rolled around (well, it really snuck in. September disappeared on me), and I offer up a new indie book of the month. For October, I'm featuring a book that I'm currently reading and thoroughly enjoying. It offers a unique steampunky take on sci-fi.

Voidhawk, written by Jason Halstead, follows the young and naive Dexter Silverhawk on his quest to captain his own ship. With the help of his dwarf friend and a couple other outcasts, Dexter will face challenges he never dreamed off.

One of the reviews for this book describes it as Star Wars-meets-Firefly-meets-Pirates of the Caribbean. Ok, so I'm paraphrasing, but it does mention all three of those in the review. And so far, it's living up to the hype. Still need another reason to read it? It's only $.99. There, you have no excuse. Go buy it, devour it, then come back and let me know what you thought.

About Jason:
Jason Halstead spends his daytime hours as an IT Manager in the automotive industry. In his spare time Jason enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, writing, and powerlifting.

Jason's true calling is in front of a keyboard, though it wasn't until he washed the foul taste of working with a couple of publishers out of his mouth before he was able to fully realize it. These days he publishes his books through his own imprint after a rigorous and abusive treatment by a collection of editors and beta readers. Don't feel sorry for him though, he likes the abuse!
