The Origin Expedition

Taking the step out into the world of publishing can be overwhelming. After ten self published books I have taken the next step in my writing career. For the past year I have been working on a new project. Today I sent a query of that new book to an agent... Now I have no misgivings that I will have to shop this around a lot until someone decides to give it a chance. I'm prepared for that (I think) and committed.

I present for you now, the blurb for this new book entitled Origin Expedition (comments are welcome)

Nearly three-hundred years from now, at the decline of the human race, Earth is depleted of its natural resources. Humans, Earth’s inhabitants, have moved off the planet and into orbit aboard giant space platforms. People, over time, have been separated into four classes, the high born, low born, slaves and breeders. The lower classes subjugated into nothing more than servants for the wealthy while the breeders, considered cattle, are used in a centuries old breeding program, shrouded in lies. Earth has become a cesspool for slave labor and every day is a fight for survival. The high born, consisting of nine prominent families are driven by the acquisition of wealth. In each family’s effort to gain more, they have sent exploration ships into deep space, with teams of archeologists chartered to uncover the resources of long forgotten alien races. The wealthiest of the Nine, is the family Tannador. The Tannador’s obsession to lead the other families in assets, has led them to an obscure region of space, to planet Kepler 369. There, the exploration team discovers and reactivates a powerful ancient computer named Origin, unlocking a depository of information predating the creation of the universe. The archeologists, led by Professor Charles Long and the Lady Da’Mira Tannador, learn that some histories are best left undiscovered. In their attempt to unlock Origin’s secrets, they release a creature imprisoned 10,000 years ago for crimes against the whole of creation, his genocidal war, the catalyst for the destruction of every sentient being in the galaxy. The Origin Expedition is story of lies, love and lasting consequence. It is an adventure tale of those yearning to be free. A chronicle of the past, present and foreseeable future that rests in the hands of those determined to save humanity from itself and the galaxy’s greatest enemy.

The Origin Expedition Written by Charles F. Millhouse Approximately 129,000 words

Over Due Update...

It's been a long while since I took time to update my site. Sometimes writing can get in the way of self promoting. In the time since my last update, I published the second Captain Hawklin book, wrote the first book in a new sci/fi epic and stared work on a third Hawklin adventure due to be released this year sometime. I hope you'll all stay with me... Hopefully I can make time to put out some posts, not just about writing, promoting and the adventure to find a mainstream publisher, but other things as well.

COMING SOON: Captain Hawklin and the Underwater Menace



Europe 1934:

Captain Steven Hawklin, known worldwide for his daring exploits, he is adored by many, revered by others and considered one of the greatest flying aces of the First World War. Along with his close friends Hardy Miller and Oscar “Oz” Lyman the three have traveled the world seeking adventure.

When an old friend and mentor, Orman Wintergreen is murdered Steven travels to England to console Orman’s widow, Desa. While there, he uncovers an insidious plot orchestrated by a vengeful sub-mariner, Victor Eichmann, a relic from the Great War who is unable to accept Germany’s defeat. When the desperate scheme unfolds, Steven learns of a new untested explosive that, when used, will cause an undersea earthquake so massive it will bring about the destruction of Great Britain and throw the world into another war.

While Steven sets out to find the German mastermind, Hardy is sent to intercept the new explosive and prevent it from arriving in the hands of Eichmann before he can put his plan in action.

Steven and Hardy learn that Victor Eichmann has powerful associates whose objectives are to stop them at any cost.

In a vain attempt Steven dives deep to the ocean floor in order to meet the underwater menace head-on, in hopes of preventing the earth shattering catastrophe and saving the world from the wrath of a German madman.

Captain Hawklin and the Underwater Menace is a golden age adventure story, filled with Heroes and villains, swindlers and thieves. It’s an adventure with hair raising cliffhangers that will keep you guessing till the very end.

Inspired by the cliffhanger serials of the 1930’s and 40’s in the tradition of Buck Rogers and Commando Cody.

Look for more Captain Hawklin Adventures coming soon.
