About the Book:

Tommy is just a poor schlub unloading freighter ships on a Martian colony when an industrial accident destroys his left food. He loses his job rather quickly afterward. With nowhere to turn and nothing to fall back on he takes a great risk at living the good life. He has a legal claim to an asteroid on the rim of the solar system. He does what he needs to raise the money, gets a ship and a crew, and then has to contend with pirates, the mob, and mechanical problems along the way. Then theirs the problem of getting the thing back to Mars for mining.

About the Author:

Sparky is an enigma, having bounced from scientific studies to the theater to writing, but for now he seems to have settled since writing makes the most sense.

Author's Note:

I know that this needs work, it is a rough draft I am currently editing, but a bit of a wider audience to give feedback would be wonderful. Do enjoy and tell me if you don't. And as a curious note: I actually do have a minor planet named after me: http://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/sbdb.cgi?sstr=19573+Cummings The desire to live on it was what lead to the kernel of this story.

Requested feedback Criteria: Overall Feedback, Voice, Pacing
