Stranded in deep space ... but at least they have donuts.

When a warp engine malfunction spits them out in a distant corner of the galaxy, Lem and the crew of the Teapot seek refuge with the robotic catering staff of a backwater space station. With their ship out of action and comms offline, all they can do is wait for rescue … and enjoy the best snacks this side of the Oort Cloud.

But when a spacefaring bounty hunter crashes the party in search of a dangerous runaway shapeshifter, Lem makes a terrible realisation – one of her friends may be an impostor.

With suspicions rising and accusations flying, they need to smoke out the faker. But in a subtle game of trickery and subterfuge, there’s no telling if the shapeshifter will slip through their fingers. As tensions boil over, who is safe to trust? And when the Teapot blasts off, will everyone on board be who they claim to be?

Gear up for a fun and fantastical intergalactic misadventure – because Lem and the gang are back in the fourth book of the Starship Teapot series! For anyone who enjoys the idea of being scared more than the reality, Frozen Heck is what happens when John Carpenter’s The Thing collides with The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Why should I buy direct from the author?

When I published my first book in January 2020, someone at work laughed and asked me when I was going to quit my job. 

There's this perception out there that authors are wealthy people. And I'm sure the big names (e.g. Richard Osman, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, etc.) are doing just fine.

But it's not like that for indie authors. It's tough out there. There are great, amazing things about being an indie author. But most of us aren't making bank.

You know who is making money out of books? Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.

You may have noticed a move in recent years of indie authors selling their books directly to you. There's a reason for that. 

If you buy a book for 0.99 from Amazon, the author gets to keep maybe 0.26 of that. Maybe. It depends on the file size. And they won't even get that for around 3 months. But if you buy a book from an author for 0.99, the author gets to keep around 0.83. And we get that money within days.

Because that first book I mentioned? Four years later, it hasn't come close to paying for itself. 

If you can't buy direct, libraries are a great way to get books for free while still helping authors get their fair share.
