Today, it’s my pleasure to showcase a launch post for a member of my Facebook Book Group, author Steven Smith. Steven’s book, Chasing Shadows, is out on the 1st April 2021.
I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. In school, I loved writing stories. In 2015, I set up a blog to review my then-reading obsession – the Discworld series. Over time the reviews branched out and I added new book-based features.
In late 2019, an idea for a story struck, so I took part in NaNoWriMo to keep me honest. Throughout 2020 that idea eventually became my first novel, Chasing Shadows. In late 2020 I had finally finished revising it, ready for editing and release in early 2021.
I’ve also been hard at work on my second novel, the follow up to Chasing Shadows and trying my hand at a whole host of short stories to boot.
As captain of the airship Arcos, Edison Crow and his childhood partner in crime, Selah, lead their crew in search of a big payday. When it comes to the pursuit of wealth, nothing is out of the question for this band of charming rogues. Smuggling. Theft. Embezzlement. It’s all part of a daring game.
But all is not smooth sailing when you’re a high profile thief with a target on your back. A job gone wrong will thrust Edison, Selah and those aboard the Arcos upon a journey straight to the heart of the shady United Republic of the High Commission in pursuit of the truth.
Troubled by his own personal demons, Edison must navigate dark skies if he hopes to gain answers. Will it be enough to help the infamous Captain Crow clear his and his crew’s names? Or will he end up Chasing Shadows?
