Welcome to the Canoples Investigations Exposes Space Dodger release tour. This is the third novel and fourth story in this series. Strap on your restraints and be ready for an exciting ride… oh, once you have the book in hand, you will discover there’s a special added attraction—the first chapter of Secret Society: A Canoples Investigations Novella!
There’s a carnival on the station, with all kinds of “legally” cloned animals, more than a few zero-G acrobats, and miniature clowns. BD’s ever present suspicious mind latches onto one thing when the advance team for Galactic Carnival arrives to begin preparations for a weeklong visit. The ringmaster looks familiar, but the man swears that he has never been to Canoples Station before. Even worse, children five and under are disappearing. A bit of investigating on BD’s part clues him in to the fact this has happened on every station Galactic Carnival has visited so far. He’s determined to uncover the true identity of the ringmaster and solve the mystery of the missing children, but at what cost. Is BD willing to lose his lifelong friends to solve this case? Will they prove Jenna Rock, Wade’s girlfriend, isn’t involved?
About K.C. Sprayberry
Born and raised in Southern California’s Los Angeles basin, K.C. Sprayberry spent years traveling the United States and Europe while in the Air Force before settling in northwest Georgia. A new empty nester with her husband of more than twenty years, she spends her days figuring out new ways to torment her characters and coming up with innovative tales from the South and beyond.
She’s a multi-genre author who comes up with ideas from the strangest sources. Those who know her best will tell you that nothing is safe or sacred when she is observing real life. In fact, she considers any situation she witnesses as fair game when plotting a new story.
The normal sounds of the promenade seem wrong. I have a sensation of impending doom, much like the moments before the space pirates showed up. The desire to leap into action is very strong, so much so that I’m literally leaning forward with my fists clenched at my side.
“Easy,” Carl murmurs. “You don’t know for sure it’s him.”
Of course, I know this man we’re watching is our quarry. How can I not know that? Not that his appearance is anywhere close to his daughter, who right now is aboard Fomalhaut for a very long stay. Erin Markus did lead Spacers Rule, a galaxy wide ring of splifters, but she wasn’t in charge.
Oh, no, she was far from in charge of those thieves. The person with that responsibility has just entered Canoples Station and is talking with none other than our less than ethical governor, but I have no definitive way of proving that.
“Back off, BD,” Terry says in a low voice. “You can’t be sure, not with that man wearing what he is.”
Interview with the Author
Please tell us about your latest book.
Canoples Investigations Exposes Space Dodger is the fourth installment in the Canoples Investigations series. It’s a fast paced action/adventure science fiction book specifically for teens. In this book, BD Bradford and the team are split up, attempting to get the goods on a sketchy space circus owner. In usual Canoples Investigations style, they tend to dive in first and think later.
What can we expect from you in the future?
There are currently eleven books planned for this series, but that may change. I’ve begun developing short stories and novellas for the shorter adventures these characters dream up. Of course, all of this is done around the myriad of other books in my to-be-completed folder, but this series seems to take precedence over anything else.
How do we find out about you and your books?
You can find me on my Facebook fan page, website, blog, and Twitter. That is, when I’m not deeply immersed in my latest novel. Those days, very few people can locate me, including my family, but they’re used to that.
Interview with BD Bradford
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
My greatest achievement? You mean like when I hung off a girder thirty-five hundred feet above the deck? Or maybe when I was chasing down space pirates? There was the time when I had to deal with a gang of splifters, Spacers Rule. I guess I can say that I have a lot of achievements and all of them are pretty much the same. The latest one, with the circus, forced me into a place I hate going, and I finally figured out that I can do a few things I’m always shoving onto the others. So, maybe learning how to research can be considered my greatest achievement, since I really hate sitting still. But don’t tell the rest of my crew that.
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Well, if you’ve had a chance to check out my adventures, you probably already know this. My idea of perfect happiness is an unending supply of Gut Buster Deluxe Pizzas. Snorts. I can see from your expression that you have no clue what a Gut Buster Deluxe is. Let me explain.
See, you have a monumental pizza, big enough to feed a whole SpaceBall team. The crust is a bit thick but it has to be. Add a layer of sauce, not too much or everything will be soggy. Then drop on every meat, vegetable, and cheese known to the galaxy on top of that. Bake that baby until it’s done. You now have what is known as a Gut Buster. The deluxe part is really yum-yum. Grins wickedly. You ladle on some terrifically magnificent chili and sprinkle on a pound or more of grated cheese. Serve that sucker steaming hot to me and my buds, and step back. We are diving into that airlock and gobbling down a delight that will keeps our stomachs filled for an hour or two.
What is your current state of mind?
I’m good. Really good. Kind of between cases right now, but we’re heading out on our next one in a few days. Just have to stock up the flitter and make sure there’s nothing pressing on the station to deal with before we leave. Oh, yeah, and we’ll need to do some research on Believers and Founders first.
