Timothy Holloway | 8 comments Hello everyone! My name is Timothy Holloway. Honestly I'm a little intimidated as this is my first novel and I'm new to Goodreads. However, after reading the various threads and posts, I feel this will be a good experience for me as a new author. I believe growth can come from new adventures.

So here we go...

I wrote "PERIL" after graduating from film school. It was originally written as a screenplay. After shopping it around to various studios and entering it into a screenwriter's competition it gained a small fan following. So it was suggested (by my mother who won't let me forget it) to adapt it into a book. And so "PERIL" was reborn, expanded, and put out for the world to read. Initially, it kinda felt like walking through Penn Station with no clothes on and having the judges from American Idol there to critique my birthday suit.

About "PERIL"

Set in the year 2185, Peril is the first edition in a futuristic series about mankind's evolution and journey into deep space. Under instruction of The Seeyer–––the 22nd Century’s version of the Internet, Vanessa Bains, a tenacious and ambitious novice Captain embarks on a deep-space mission to save Earth and humanity from imminent destruction. While seeking redemption for choosing to terminate her pregnancy to lead the mission, Captain Vanessa Bains, finds herself in mortal danger on the eerie planet MV5.

Light years away from help, Bains and her unruly crew discover they are being stalked by a malevolent alien menace. In order to survive, Captain Bains must keep her crew together and send out an intergalactic distress signal–––what responds will change her forever. Sometimes redemption is the beginning of a bigger journey.

PERIL is available on Amazon

Currently, conceptual artists and 2D/3D designers Neil Blevins (WALL-E, The Incredibles, Up, and Brave) Jamie Martin (2012 film Gravity, and Singularity), and Dragos Jieanu (MTV, and The Sound of Thunder) are helping me to adapt PERIL into a graphic motion comic. So hopefully this story will reach a broader audience.

I'm new to Goodreads so please add me as a friend. I'd love to get to know you all better.

Timothy Holloway | 8 comments I have decided to make my first science fiction novel, PERIL, available on Kindle for free for two days (Saturday, October 6th and Sunday, October 7th) to make the book more visible to readers.

You could really help me kick off this promotional campaign if you could tell as many people as possible who have Kindles or can download Kindle books to go get their free copy at:

The UK link is:

After reading it, please write a review so others will know your thoughts on it.

Thanks, and I will let you know how well we did when the campaign is over!
