Ronald James DeNardoabout this book: This is the amazing story of a somewhat venerable, yet sometimes juvenile, buffoonish and onetime United League of Planet's Captain Robert Michael Calyx, and his adventures and misadventures in the 40th. Century. This mixed-up story goes on to describe explicitly how this once illustrious and currently decommissioned Captain is supposedly just along for the ride aboard his former namesake, the Starship Americus III, as a presumably non official, consultant. Yes, an unofficial and supposed consultant aboard this newly commissioned, recently upgraded, amazingly powerful and swift tachyon driven, Starship. Which just happens to be on its Maiden voyage to the planetary system of Rigel; a most bewildering star located in the constellation Orion. That happens to be located some 860 light-years away from the United League of Planet's (U.L.O.P.) main and humongous Star-Station: Earth II; asynchronously orbiting high above the now highly polluted and dying planet Earth.
I wrote this book to prove to myself, friends and acquaintances; both supportive and doubting alike, that I could actually finish writing this story, not only for the personal satisfaction of doing so, but also to become a published and recognized author. This, virtual fiction and narrative type of story; is expounded-ly and liberally based on an embellished combination of some of my more fanciful and lucid dreams. I am proud to say that in January of 2012, I did have his first Sci-Fi Fantasy novel entitled The Andromeda Incident published. "The Captain's Propensity is my second novel, is therefore, the culmination of nearly six months of an on-and-off again effort; on my part, to develop it from just an entry in my dream journal, to write a poem about it, then expanding it into a short story, novella and finally and unbelievingly expanding it into a full-length novel. "I hope you enjoy it."
The Artwork I chose for the cover is an acrylic on canvas painting created by my best friend and artist Terry L. Palmer and it just seemed to perfect subject, an unknown galaxy, for my novel; The Captain's Propensity.
What I would like to say to all upcoming authors, is to just keep writing, submitting and promoting.
