He flew on both the US Space Shuttle and Russian Soyuz spacecraft where accomplished four spacewalks. Ron also spent 18 days at the bottom of the ocean during a research mission held in the world’s only undersea research lab, Aquarius.

Later, Ron was assigned to the US Agency for International Development, leading the Unity Node project. Their task was to develop a universal, open-source platform, enabling humanitarian organizations to work towards mutual goals. In 2007 Ron founded Manna Energy Ltd. Created with the goal of leveraging the Carbon Market to finance humanitarian projects. Manna Energy Ltd is the first organization in the world to register a United Nations Clean Development Mechanism carbon credit program for water treatment.

Synopsis

Floating in Darkness will take the reader on a journey toward a deeper understanding of life, society, and the interdependent nature of all things.

This story is designed to spark conversations that transcend political, cultural, national, ethnic and religious divides. Focusing instead on our shared humanity.

This is a journey of war and peace, conflict and love, height and depth. It is a journey through outer space and inner space. Throughout, Ron compares the dancing, intersecting orbits of religion, spirituality, and science. The book will touch on nuclear deterrence and explore the intimate violence of combat—highlighting the complexities of tribalism. Ron will address our own mortality and bask the reader in the sheer wonder and beauty of our world and beyond. Ron brings the reader with him from the ocean floor to Earth orbit and back.

The purpose of this book is to replace fear with awe and wonder. And to use the platform of awe and wonder as a jump-off point—transforming each of us into white blood cells in a growing immune response to heal our world. Together we will systematically break down the divisive walls that keep us apart. We will bridge gaps and unify effort.

Why support this book?

  • Ron’s theme of unity is incredibly relevant and timely. With potentially divisive elections approaching in the US and abroad, Ron’s message will hit home and will be highly sought after.
  • Ron is a celebrated author and keynote speaker with advanced praise of his previous book: The Orbital Perspective.
  • He has a large social media following that will be leveraged for sales. (Twitter followers: 159,647 • Facebook followers: 97,319 • Instagram followers: 2,410 • LinkedIn connections: 2,783)
  • Ron is a recognized thought leader. His opinions and expertise are sought by Fortune 500 CEOs, and leaders inside and outside of government. Ron's thought leadership is highlighted at: https://www.rongaran.com/ It is anticipated that there will be a large corporate presale market for the book.
  • Ron is producing and launching a “Floating in Darkness” Podcast that is designed to build community around the message of the book.

Similar titles

  • An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield, published by MacMillan (29 Oct 2013) : This title is similar because it is written by an astronaut who uses his life experiences as a lesson for people to follow to lead a better life on Earth. It is different in that it is written as a past-tense memoir. Floating in Darkness is written in first person present tense and will read like a novel. Also, in addition to exploring outer space, Floating in Darkness also explores inner space (spirituality).
  • Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia by Elizabeth Gilbert. Published by Penguin (16 Feb 2006): This title is similar because it uses an autobiographical narrative as a metaphor for the bigger story concerning God and the meaning of life. It is different in the actual journey. In Floating in Darkness Ron weaves his story from the depths of combat and the depths of the ocean floor to the heights of outer space.
  • Endurance: A Year in Space, a Lifetime of Discovery by Scott Kelly, published by Alfred A. Knopf (October 2017). This title is similar because it is written by an astronaut and is an autobiographical account of his life and time in space. It is different because Floating in Darkness uses the narrative to delve into the evolution of society - where we’ve been and where we’re headed.

Audience

This book was written for anyone who wants to improve their life and their world. Readers are sure to walk away with a greater awareness of and gratitude for our universe. The book is specifically targeted for people with an interest in space exploration, military history, and the advancement of society.

Advance praise

This book is significantly better, deeper, and more compelling than Ron’s critically acclaimed first book: The Orbital Perspective. The Foreword for The Orbital Perspective was written by Nobel Peace Laurette Muhammad Yunus.

Praise for the Orbital Perspective:

The Orbital Perspective could wind up being the most important tale ever told from space.” Time Magazine

The Orbital Perspective reminds us of our common humanity and that the pressing challenges we face, we must face and resolve together through tolerance, dialogue, and cooperation.” Kofi Annan Nobel Peace Laureate and former UN Secretary-General

“Ron’s focus is on finding new connections and collaborations that cross borders and allow us to transform the world for the better before we destroy this big blue ball we call home.” Peter Gabriel, Grammy Award Winning Musician & Founder of WOMAD

“Ron’s breakthrough book is one of a kind. He masterfully synthesizes the big-picture view of our world with the ground-level details necessary to overcome the barriers to improving life for all people” Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia

“This is more than just a book; it is a call to action and a catalyst for a necessary movement. This is a defining book for a defining time in human history.” Daniel Epstein Founder and CEO, Unreasonable Group

“The Orbital Perspective is an inspirational knockout. After reading this book you will refuse to accept the status quo on our planet.” Wladimir Klitschko, Ph.D. Heavyweight World Champion, Founder of Klitschko Management Group.

“When Ron speaks it’s poetry” Muhammad Yunus, Best Selling Author, and Nobel Peace Laurette.

Black Rose Writing is an independent publishing house that strongly believes in developing a personal relationship with their authors. The Texas-based publishing company doesn't see authors as clients or just another number on a page, but rather as individual people... people who deserve an honest review of their material and to be paid traditional royalties without ever paying any fees to be published.

Black Rose Writing, established in 2006, features books from an array of fiction, non-fiction, and children's book genres, all having one thing in common, an individual's originality and hardship. It can take endless hours to finish a deserving manuscript, and Black Rose Writing applauds each and every author, giving them a chance at their dream. Because Black Rose Writing takes full advantage of modern printing technology, the company has an infinite print run via print-on-demand services.

Black Rose Writing's success with their authors is due mainly to their many lines of promotion, (examples: showcasing book titles at festivals, scheduling book events, flexible marketing programs, and sending out press releases and review copies, etc.) and they provide a broad distribution (Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and more...) that larger book publishers also reach. We are proud members of IBPA (Independent Book Publishers Association), a recognized ITW (International Thriller Writers) publisher, members of Publishers Marketplace, and currently serving on the Ingram Publisher Advisory Board.

Something or Other Publishing logo Something or Other Publishing

Welcome to SOOP, a new concept in publishing and features a groundbreaking model to connect authors and readers. The traditional publishing industry was suited to serve the few, the talented, and the fortunate. But the internet revolution turned that market on its head, introducing e-books and print-on-demand technology—and with them came a self-publishing explosion. In fact, the world of self-publishing has become such a crowded field that many great ideas are simply going unheard among the clamor. And readers are suffering for it, too, with few tools and little power to sort the wheat from the chaff.

Enter SOOP. To bridge the gap created between traditional publishing and self-publishing, we identify what readers want and publish the authors who can deliver. We are NOT a Vanity Publisher. Our revenues come from selling books to readers.

Here’s how it works: Authors submit their book ideas and solicit feedback, while readers pledge support and vote for their favorites. As authors achieve various voting milestones on the path toward 2,000 votes (and publishing contract eligibility), they receive guidance and benefits and complete related check-in activities. Our process focuses on educating and empowering authors to master what we call the three P’s: platform, promotion, and product, even before their books are finished. This approach also helps SOOP to make the right investment choice with every author we publish.

Our designers and editors produce exceptional books that are distributed in both print and digital formats to all major retailers, including Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.

Atmosphere Press logo Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.

    Zero hesitation in supporting this important mission Ron - loved "The Orbital Perspective" so I know I'm going to be inspired all over again with "Floating In Darkness" And more importantly - there is work to be done, and we all know from earlier missions that failure is not an option.
