Halley's Casino Series (Book Spotlight, Guest Post and Giveaway!)

Yesterday, iRead Book Tours kicked off the tour for MARINE, the second book in the Halley's Casino series. Last year I read Halley's Casino, which is a fun adventure that is a good mix of sci-fi, time-travel and comedy. MARINE continues the story, and I will share my review with you on the 8th. Today, I have a guest post from the author and we also have a giveaway. Check them out.

How I Got the Idea and Created the Worlds of Halley's Casino
Guest Post by Mark JG Fahey

Where does thought and inspiration lead one to create a world within worlds and characters that inhabit that idea? Hmm?

Halley's Comet has always fascinated me and one day this thought entered my mind all on its own. What if Halley's Comet wasn't really a comet at all but an intergalactic casino cloaked as a comet? OK. Now what? LOL

The lead character Nebula Yorker was a character that had been kicking around in my head for well over 20 years in different settings, and I was finally able to find a permanent home for Neb with Halley's Casino. From there I weaved in my love for science fiction. Star Trek, Rock n Roll and history, especially ancient Roman history, all fell into place. It turned out to be a very original concept like no other. 

Of course, there will always be and there are many classic sci-fi outlines, but never ever has there been the idea that Halley's Comet is not what it appears to be, an intergalactic casino rushing through time and space carrying along with it a story, fresh, new and perhaps thought-provoking sprinkled with satirical humour and wit. Even John Lennon is amused (spoilers) :-)

I invite everyone to hop aboard this far out rock n roll time travel adventure. Who knows where it might go!
