This week Indie Beginning introduces readers to the science fiction novel Ark of Souls, book 1 of the Vale series by indie author Paul Grover. On the Outer Frontier the FSS Berlin, an ageing Federal Navy Cruiser disrupts a pirate attack on a corporate freighter. Mira Thorn, an emotionally damaged veteran of the Martian War of Independence is dispatched to investigate the heavily damaged vessel. The broken ship becomes Mira and her companion’s only hope of survival as events spiral out of their control.
Paul Grover was one of the first people to submit to the podcast and has been a great support ever since. Ark of Souls was originally set to air back in February, but Paul allowed us to push his story back so that we could teach ourselves how to add sound effects to a story. We can’t thank him enough for trusting us with his work and hope that you enjoy the enhanced audio version of this indie read! Purchase your copy here.
