Tethered Worlds: Unwelcome Star

For fans of Dune, the Honor Harrington series, & Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet series.

Imagine using a technology so different, that it appears as magic…


“…one of the most fully imagined sci-fi worlds I have ever experienced outside of Frank Herbert’s genre-defining “Dune” series.” –D.A.Cartier

Jordahk thought he was average. He was wrong. He thought his planet too far from the centuries-old stalemate line to see any action. He was wrong about that too.

To save his world from annexation he must retreat with his eccentric grandfather, seeking help from the farthest planets. But what can stop the domination of mankind’s supreme star-spanning government?

There is an ancient technology with the power to break the conventional–but it can also break the user. And only a special few can wield it. But Jordahk suspects his grandfather knows more than he’s telling…


Meet Gregory Faccone

You might think part-time mystery man Gregory Faccone has lived ten lifetimes. He’s experienced the ocean’s cool dawn, and baked in 130° deserts. He’s worked amidst the concrete canyons of major cities, and on a dark, rainy night, driven a remote road carpeted with frogs (true story, really).

Classically trained in creative arts, he performed a long tenure developing electronic entertainment with smaller dev houses and the biggest names like Electronic Arts and SONY. He collaborated with Universal Studios, Warner Bros., and Paramount, adding content to popular franchises from Star Trek, to comics, to even medical dramas like ER.

Gregory’s editing skills, refined in the crucible of competitive entertainment, can be put to use for your novel or creative endeavor. See his Editing Services page and get your dream moving forward today.

To share his creations beyond fleeting game systems, Gregory had to venture into the written word. It has stood for centuries, and although the ways we read evolve, novels continue unimpeded. A reader’s bond with a quality literary work is unlike any other. When Gregory starting creating a unique science fiction universe, he knew the medium for which it was destined. The fantastic framework for his science fiction series, Tethered Worlds, took two years to create before he jumped into writing the first entry.

Gregory is influenced by Arthur C. Clarke’s axiom: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” So jump into Tethered Worlds and go on an adventure based in the centuries to come. While the technology is advanced, the nature of mankind is unchanged. It continues to wrestle with flaws, and is preserved through selflessness and nobility.

Cease Fire: A Space Adventure Book 1

Stranded in uncharted space, Karma is finding it harder to keep information from the crew.

But what she knows will affect their chances of survival.

At least with the crew knowing about the device it means that she can work with them to get it back online and find a way home.

That would be the plan, but for a pesky distress call.

A distress call they have to answer.

The problem with responding to distress signals in unknown space, with untold threats all around, is that you also run the risk of needing to send out your own distress call.

Which presupposes that there are friendly folks somewhere around. And that you’re not going to attract the attention of any lurking hostiles.

Not only that, but their side quest could very well result in losing crew members.

And we’re not just talking about red shirts.

New Orders: A Space Adventure

The year on the human home world calendar is 2220.

Life is a bit like the sci-fi shows of the 20th Century in some ways.

In others? Not so much.

I’m on a League of Civilizations star ship. Yep. Star Ship. In space.

Currently trying to physically, and emotionally, recover from a crash where I lost my partner. All would be going fine except we also have to survive an encounter with the deadliest lifeform in the universe.

A lifeform we were starting to think was just legend.

No big deal.

If it were just about the lives on board that would be one thing. But it’s not. What we do next will impact everyone, in all the League civilizations. That’s hundreds of billions of sentients. They could all be wiped out.

I’m running out of options.

And time.

Oh yeah, and as if dealing with trying to save everyone in the universe wasn’t enough, I also have to contend with a crush on the ship’s first officer who also happens to be… yes, you guessed it, a synthetic life form.

Fuck my life.

Surviving either of these things intact is going to be a challenge.

Meet J. T. Skye

Hi there. I’m Jon Thomas Skye, better known to my friends as J. T. I love to write stories of heroic quests, ancient prophecies and mythical journeys along roads less traveled. They include grand, military space battles, secret alliances, desperate treachery, vengeance and retribution against the arrogance, elitism and glory hunting found at the highest levels of society. From pirates, slavers, saboteurs and assassins… to elite Warriors, trader families, cargo haulers and the many desperate refugees just trying to escape conscription. I’ve loved to read and write science fiction, fantasy and action adventure stories my whole life and am passionate about mainstream Sci Fi, Space Opera, Military Sci Fi, and mythical Fantasy. If you love Sci Fi, Fantasy and Action Adventure, join me on the journey of a life time.
