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.

Boyle & Dalton logo Boyle & Dalton

Boyle & Dalton publishes great books. Our carefully vetted catalog includes work of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. The world of publishing is changing, we're changing with it.

The Boyle & Dalton imprint was founded in 2014, as a quality-vetted imprint of Columbus Publishing Lab. Founder Brad Pauquette conceptualized a hybrid model which balances the financial and rights model of self publishing with the quality controls and production excellence of a traditional publisher.

Boyle & Dalton authors share in the cost of producing and marketing their book. Within our hybrid model, authors gain access to the infrastructure and resources of a traditional publisher, but retain the majority of the profits as if they had self-published.

Working together with authors, we produce books that compete with their traditionally published counterparts, but we adapt to the realities of modern publishing and take advantage of the technologies available to us.
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. Boyle & Dalton carefully considers all submissions for publication, based on manuscript quality. Boyle & Dalton does not acccept erotica or children's books.

We vet all submissions for quality, and only accept titles that will preserve the reputation of the Boyle & Dalton imprint.

All Boyle & Dalton books undergo a rigorous editing and production process, including developmental editing to ensure that your book is the best that it can be.

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.
