A work in progress, the Viridian System series covers books featuring Big Pete and the Swede, orichalcum asteroid miners, as developed in the following flash fiction stories (earliest first). YA and up.  Plenty of nudity, swearing and booze, but all of it futuristic and mostly in good taste.

As a teaser for book one, there is a Viridian System Sampler containing some of these stories (eight in all) which is sometimes free on Smashwords, and also B&N, Kobo and Apple.

The Perihelix – Book One

All Big Pete and the Swede want, after a hard season mining orichalcum in the asteroid belt, is a beach, a girl and some good food. Maybe not in that order.  But when an Imperium agent steals one of their girls, and some art work turns up bearing mysterious coded messages, the two men take to their spacecraft to work out what’s happening.

A chase round the galaxy ensues, with kidnap, treachery, mystery and aliens all playing their part in the quest, as both men discover life is not as simple as they had worked so hard to make it.  Will the girls succeed in flying a spaceship? Will the Federation recover the secret weapon?  Will the Imperium infiltrate the Viridian System?  And will Pete’s destiny prove to be the end of the men’s partnership?  Or is that the Swede’s fault for keeping secrets even from his best buddy?

    Been perusing ur site! This is exciting and I think the Princelings sound like fun stories. I am new to the blogging world and love that I can see published author’s work and communicate with them! This is very exciting for me.
