R.E. Carson, a retired law enforcer, former military personnel, and previously published author of two other books, has completed his new book “I Thought I Was Alone! A Pirate’s Tale”: an action-packed sci-fi tale about the life of a novice sailor, based on the golden age of maritime piracy, during the 1650s-1730s.

R.E. Carson writes, “Being alone on a ship the size of Her Majesty meant maintenance was an overwhelming ongoing task for one person. It still had to be done yet, a daunting task which never seemed to get caught up, meaning lack of sleep was a constant. Before he fixed or dealt with one problem, five others caught his attention. The wind was the biggest attention getter. Lowering and raising sails, steering into the wind, or tacking took the majority of his time. In a dead calm sea, he just drifted and prayed the wind picked up, and he’d find land soon.”

Published by Page Publishing, R.E. Carson’s tale is a suspenseful coming-of-age story about a novice sailor named Finney, who keeps running into sticky situations.

It is based on the time in history, around the 1700s, where merchant ships were targeted by pirates and mutinies occurred because of the horrible conditions sailors are required to work in. This thrilling story begins with Finney, a greenhorn sailor, on a merchant vessel in the Caribbean Sea. Unfortunately for Finney, an uprising occurs, and he is left on the ship alone.

Finney’s quest, to arrive back home in England, leads him on many different dangerous adventures. He stumbles upon an island with an ancient city full of treasures. After finding this treasure, he gets captured and the treasure gets stolen. Luckily, the Cronks, an alien race, come to his aid. Readers will discover if Finney will be destroyed by the cannibals and pirates or saved by the Cronks in this action-packed saga.

Readers who wish to experience this charming work can purchase “I Thought I Was Alone! A Pirate’s Tale” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
