Maksim Malik lives in North Carolina and tries to write with a cat blocking the screen a good portion of the time. He suffers from a neurological disability and spends most of his time on the computer, writing, gaming, and reading.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing, I spend my time playing video games, reading, or 3D modeling. Sometimes I simply sit and enjoy music without doing anything in particular.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Most of the ebooks I discover are through Goodreads or Amazon, and sometimes word of mouth but not often.
Nadani Jagi is low on money and desperately needs replacement parts for her ship, Astromancer. That's when she finds a job she has to invest some of her own money into before she can get paid and accepts it—against the advice of her Personal Artificial Intelligence, a sentient AI living in her own brain. The job has her purchase imperial slaves and transport them to a station where they will be bought by the station owner for a much higher price. In Dier, where Nadani is from, slavery is outlawed, but in Gershan space it's legal. She is not happy about trading slaves herself, but she sets out with a cargohold full of slaves in cryostasis for the sake of her ship. Little does she know this contract will lead to her involvement in a galactic affair dealing with lost government secrets in the form of special information nanobots. With the help of a Joined Union Systems agent, Nadani and her PAI are put to the test on their race across the galaxy to secure the nanobots and the information they contain.

I've loved this book since the first time I read it several years ago. The story is entertaining, and Dan McGirt's sense of humor is the perfect blend of wit and absurdity.
