The Star Pirate's Folly

Book One of the Surface Trilogy


My name is James Hanlon and I’m a science fiction author. My first book, The Star Pirate’s Folly, is a dark, young adult adventure novel that blends the classic story of Treasure Island with science fiction like Ender’s Game and The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress. If that sounds cool to you, it’s only $2.99 on Amazon!

I’ll be writing the rest of this three-part series and posting each chapter’s first draft online as I write it. There are various avenues where you can get it for free, but I am here to ask that you join my Patreon community for as little as $1 per month as I grow one humble book into a career I can build my life around. The first several chapters of each book will be public, but to read the full books you’ll need to become a patron.

It’s no small thing, I know!

The more patrons I get, the more money I can afford to spend on cover art, editing, and advertising. Every patron will be able to give input on the story as it goes along, so if there’s something that you really love, really hate, or really want to see, you can let me know! I want to write the books that you want to read.

I am focused on building a community with the overall goal of reaching 1,000 “true fans” who love my work and want to support my writing in the future. I want to make a living doing what I love, so if you can find it in your heart (wallet) to become a patron or to buy a copy of my books and stories, I will forever be grateful.
