What early readers are saying:
“The Texian Armada prevents a Third World War”
What a perfect second novel to Mr. Phillips’ first!  Without giving up too many spoilers; this book is even better than the first in the Texian Armada Sagas.
Trade Wars starts out with a literal bang, gunshots with a barrage of a mini-war against the tight knit group of Naval friends; finding themselves within a possible full fledged war with an Eastern country that is trying their best to start a full-on World War in order to take over all Trade Routes on the high seas.
This second novel is high in intrigue, full of even more developed characters; humor matched in the middle of tough times, and much more.  I read it in a short time; as it was hard to put down.
Imagine reading a continual battle without stopping; much like a movie.
The author has the ability to write a painted picture with words, drawing from his obvious long history of protecting our nation with his own Naval experiences.  I was duly impressed with this new novel. Bring On More!  Highly recommended read.- Rae L. 

I’m proud to know that these characters are showing everyone how to be a true patriot and human being. – JR W.

Meet Sirius Pen

Sirius Pen is just your average boring person, went to college, got a degree, got bored and studied a course on a different field, got a certificate, got bored again and got a postgraduate diploma in another different field, whilst self-studying some different fields of game development … which was fun! But after amassing the necessary skill and building a project up to its later alpha stages, then it happened, the twist. It turns out, video game development requires much, more resources than just skill to make a game that’s at least interesting and the only way around it, is to make something that’s just rushed or meh …! Oh no! The nemesis! The game must be stopped, why? Because, Sirius Pen feels like the legendary designer Shigeru Miyamoto-san used to say ” If it’s not interesting, then why make it?” But luckily for Sirius Pen, Sirius Pen had been working part-time on something, writing a story, which is both fun and exhausting. Then it got scrapped, because working on both games and writing is, well overkill and ridiculously daunting. In 2020 that story was axed, but with nothing else, interesting enough to turn to, Sirius Pen took the pen! No, wait! Sirius Pen meant … the smartphone! After game development was halted in June and the year 2021, writing began, again with the terribly named story ” The girl who helped”, then it got changed to “Estera” and later “SHIMMERS OF ESTERA” and later divided into five parts, what can I say, that little child of a book grew way too fast on countless gruelling revisions that made Sirius Pen sick, well not that dramatically sick, just burnt out, posture stuff, some days of fever and some canker sores, one of which that lasted for about three months, it’s nothing really. Fast forward, April 2022 here we are, Sirius Pen had finished the first two parts of the book and got them published, finally, Sirius Pen has made it to Sirius Pen’s debut as an author! P.S. Sirius Pen hopes you will enjoy this story that tells the journey of little Estera. Thank you!
