A little while ago, fellow author Robert Lee Beers contacted me with some kind words about my space fantasy novel, Jak Phoenix. I always enjoy hearing from other authors and as you know I’ve posted a lot of great info about other independent writers in the past.
Robert had this to say:
I am giving book 1 a five star review for a specific reason: this is a mind movie. Many of the best-selling authors do not offer the escapism this style of writing delivers. Harry Potter, yes, Lord of the Rings, no. I am not comparing Mister Williams to either Rowling or Tolkein, not at all, but I am comparing the prose. Jak Phoenix comers across to me as a sort of Indiana Jones of the galaxy, and the madcap ride of his adventures certainly delivers an enjoyable read. Is it Dickens? Is it Dumas? Of course not. This is reading for an escape, and in today’s world we need this.
Robert Lee Beers is the author of the Tony Mandolin series, which you can read about on his website.

Here’s a bit about JP:
Jak Phoenix is a pilot who would rather kick back with a cold drink than stick his neck out to save the galaxy. But, as we all know, life often gets in the way of these ‘big dreams.’
Jak and his longtime friend Baxter once again find themselves on the verge of bankruptcy. A last minute salvage mission delivers more than they bargained for when Jak’s old enemy shows up and steals their haul out from under them. When it is revealed the cargo is more important than any of them realized, Jak decides, against his better judgment, that a retrieval is necessary. His pursuit leads him right past his enemy and into the hands of the most feared pirate in the galaxy.
In the spirit of space operas of old, comes an action packed novel following the exploits of the best low quality pirate in the galaxy – Jak Phoenix.

Jak Phoenix (2010) & Jak Phoenix 2: The Markazian Deception (2012), by Canadian author Matt D. Williams, are written in the same vein as the Guardians film, featuring action and adventure kept light with a heavy dose of comedy. They were written to be a space adventure everyone could enjoy, which looks like what Marvel is going for with their new film.
The Jak Phoenix novels are available at a great low price wherever ebooks are sold. Load up your eReader, tablet, phone or iPad and join the adventures!
