New cover to celebrate 9,000 copies sold!

It occurred to me that I should tout the fact that My Other Car is s Spaceship reached #1 bestseller status on Amazon last month by added a medallion to that effect to the cover. The new cover was finished the same day the book reached 9,000 copies sold. So it was a doubly good day. Here's the new cover:

Audiobook version of My Other Car is a Spaceship is coming soon!

I will be working with a very talented voice actor named Mark Westfield to produce an audiobook version of MY OTHER CAR IS A SPACESHIP. If all goes according to plan, it should be available for sale in December on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.

For anyone not familiar with the book, it was the #1 bestselling military sci-fi novel on Amazon.

When space pirates threaten to take over the shipping lanes, retired air force fighter pilot Hal Nellis is recruited to fight them. It all comes down to a final battle for the spaceways. Win, and the pirate threat is crushed forever. Lose, and the people of Earth and countless other backwater worlds are doomed to enslavement and death.

Well thought out and written story of action and suspense. Chapman has a winner in this story. Needs to make a short series out of it.”—David L. Coffing

I loved it. Almost nonstop action from Chapter 3 on. The action sequences are exciting and the banter between the two main characters is funny.

I couldn't put it down.”—Russ Allen
