A number of years ago while I was doing research for a little story I was working on I stumbled upon DIY Drones and, later, sUAS News. Hanging out on the DIY Drones forum, building my own amateur UAV and other life-changing events became distractions to finishing my story. Well, I finally got around to doing just that, i.e. finishing it.
This has very much been a DIY effort from writing the story, to putting together the simple cover, to self-publishing and on to self-marketing. It has taken a little while, but I have finally received enough feedback that I no longer worry about having embarrassed myself with my first book.
I have never been able to contribute much to this community in a technical sense, but maybe I can provide the entertainment--although I fear that some of my less intelligent posts have already done that. In any case, using the coupon code below you can download a free copy of my book from Smashwords in any number of e-book formats. While it's intended for the young reader, adults have found it entertaining. Indeed, below is some of their feedback.

From Amazon -- 4 stars; "I mainly read to see how well the author did the drone technical details. He did a really good job explaining the workings of the model aircraft drone. I quite liked the book."
From Facebook -- "I read LITTLE EYE IN A BIG SKY and thoroughly enjoyed it! It would be well worth anyone with a young reader in the family to purchase. If the young reader in your family has a scientific bent they will really enjoy it. Has something for the mystery lover as well as a teenage friendship/crush story line. I plan to get it for my great-niece who loves to read and is 13."
