Guest Post: Launch Day!

My fellow Suckers Guild member Luke Bellmason has just launched his new novel, and I'm very excited.

The book is called The Canterbury Tales,Volume I, and here's what he has to say about it on his blog (and yes, I do have permission to repeat it here):

The Canterbury Tales – Volume 1 is now officially available for download in the Amazon Kindle store. The ebook is available on the US and UK stores as well as all the other global stores.
Kindle Prime members can borrow the book for free and there’s no DRM so you can even lend it to your friends (or foes).
The Canterbury Tales tells the stories of twelve space travellers on their way to Vale aboard a passenger liner, the GSS Canterbury. Volume 1 contains four short stories; the Smuggler’s Tale, the Merchant’s Tale, the Assassin’s Tale and the extended two-part Knight’s Tale. Volumes 2 and 3 will follow in 2014 and 2015 and introduce the Pirate, the Bounty Hunter, the Commander, the Spy, the Scout, the Slaver and more!
The style is heavily influenced by 80s video games and by Chaucer’s own idea of having a story telling competition among a group of pilgrims. If you like action/adventure space fiction, tightly woven plots and bold characters, with a dash of humour thrown in you’ll probably like The Canterbury Tales. One of the most original and inventive new works to come out of the publishing houses of Ursa Minor in recent years.
The Canterbury Tales, Volume I is not a Suckers Guild book, as Luke joined the Guild very shortly before the book launch. But we're all very excited for him. I've been privileged to see a little bit of the book, and I can't wait to read the rest of it.
