Présentation de l'éditeur

When you are old enough to finally become an Earth Mars citizen, everything should be perfect. Right? Not for Liam Hoffen. He's stuck on a mining asteroid called Colony 40, helping his father work a claim that is never going to pay out. His best friend, Nick James is set for life in James' Rental business and Liam just discovered that the girl he's known forever thinks he's pretty great and now she's leaving for the Mars Naval Academy.

Liam dreams of sailing the stars. Whenever he gets the chance, he jets into space and floats, wishing to be free of the asteroid that has claimed him. What he doesn't realize is that fate is about to change everything.

Sometimes you have to lose parts of yourself to gain the stars, and Liam discovers that while it isn't easy to literally lose parts of yourself to the pirates who attacked your home, gaining the stars is worth everything.

He and Nick are about to find out what the real world has to offer and they end up meeting exciting people along the way.

I've always been a story teller but only recently have a drummed up the courage to share my stories in writing. When my kids were young one of our favorite activities was to lay in bed, just before bedtime and make up stories. They would get to pick out some of the characters and I'd just start spinning the tale. They loved making me backup and change the story to fit their mind for the night. Since they are all too old for this now, I've taken to writing.

At this point there are three works available to you on Amazon. All set in the Privateer Tales universe. The first book, Rookie Privateer is the cornerstone of the series. It introduces the main cast. The second book, Fool Me Once, is a shorter, novella length work. While preparing Rookie Privateer for publication, I found myself daydreaming about what must have happened to one of the pirates that we were introduced to in Rookie Privateer and so Fool Me Once was introduced. Finally, Parley, the third book, available on Sept 5th, 2014 takes back up again with the original crew, introduced in Rookie Privateer.

I'm currently working on three project. The first is a story, set in a fantasy setting that I've been working on for nearly a decade. I have high hopes of releasing this sometime in late 2014, perhaps early 2015. The next project is a short story that will bridge the gap between Privateer Tales #3 (Parley) and Privateer Tales #4 (as yet unnamed). Finally, I'm also working on Privateer Tales #4. I'm hoping to have the short out before Christmas of 2014 and #4 out in late winter of 2015.

My influences are pretty wide ranging. Recent works I have enjoyed are; Elizabeth Moon's Vatta's war, Nathan Lowell's Solar Clipper Tales. Perhaps my favorite modern author is L.E. Modesitt Jr. with his Recluce and Imager series. Early on I enjoyed just about anything Heinlein wrote, including, Starship Troopers and Have Spacesuit - Will Travel. I also loved Asimov, Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle and when they got together for A Mote in God's Eye it was magic!

I have had to separate my writing career from my professional career so as to not make things too confusing at work, so, yes Jamie McFarlane is a pseudonym. All of my writing is done in the evening hours and on the weekends. I have to admit to looking forward to coming home every evening so that I can spend time with my imaginary friends.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Definite Read!!! 1 juin 2014
Par Jester64 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
When I finished this book I immediately checked for the second volume even though it was 1:30 AM and had to go to work at 7 am.
Well written. Good plot and the characters carried the story. Fit well together.

Would I recommend this book to a friend? Yes Definitely.
Would I read this again in the future? Yes Definitely.
Would I pre-order the next book without waiting for reviews? Most likely.
Readability- 4.5. Well written. Good to excellent word usage. Good wordsmithing. Characters come alive.
Editing 4.5 stars. Several areas are good but could be used to expand the characters and make the story great.
Intended audience Young adult to adult.
Worth the price? yes $3.99 to $5.99 range.

Good start and looking forward to the next book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Space Opera!!!! 14 juin 2014
Par Humble Frog - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I loved this book. The only downside was that it wasn't longer. It's got everything a good space opera need: a struggling young protagonist, a broken down ship that is turned into a great trader/corvette, young love, betrayal, privates.....just awesome.

If you liked "Firefly," the Solar Clipper Series by Nathan Lowell, or good old fashion Sci-if, then you should pick this up.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What can I say? 3 mai 2014
Par Joshua Wachter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
It was a great book. The right blend of action, adventure and fix'er upper.

We start out on an asteroid mining colony and proceed to dealing with pirates and then spreading our wings. I highly recommend this book.

In fact the only thing I can point to in the book and really say I'm not sure about is the relationship with Tabby or whatever her name is, Loose Nut #3. I just don't see how she's going to be an integral part of the story going forward.

enjoy!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 SciFi with regular (well, really good) humans 19 juillet 2014
Par Jackie H. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I read quite a lot of science fiction. This book took me to a blue collar future. It wasn't what I expected at all and I mean that in the best way. The characters were very real feeling and they made up an interesting and diverse society - friends, families, neighbors, businesses and industries. The story took the kind of odd turns that sometimes happen in real life and those elements, rather than feeling random, added complexity and depth. Really good.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Adventure with lots of good detail 14 mai 2014
Par N. Quist - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Mr. McFarlane must have done extensive research on life and travel in space. The descriptions weave a wonderful picture. These details lay a strong base for the adventure storyline. Our hero is young and just beginning to find his way in life. He must do so at high speed as he is drawn into his new life. I can't wait to find out what his next mission/adventure will be.
