Ray Palla

Bacliff, Texas

Ray put three decades into a commercial broadcast career. He anchored two top-rated Texas radio news desks.

Now, his books, KRILL AMERICA, SIMPLE TRIPLE STANDARD, and H have 5-Stars on Amazon.

During his journalism career, Ray interviewed astronauts who walked on the moon like Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin and the late Neil A. Armstrong. Ray recalls that “those two, like school kids,” sparred over who spoke the first words on the moon. “Aldrin still contends that he said something about a soft landing just seconds before Armstrong famously reported to Houston that the Eagle had landed.”

U.S. Senators, Governors, Mayors, and a host of other influential notables interviewed with Ray (and they all called him ‘Ray’). His “on and off-the-record” dialogs invoked hundreds of musicians, actors, comedians, sports legends, and daily-dozens of down-to-earth people to speak up or speak out. From those conversations, Ray learned the art of telling a compelling story.

Palla recently said, “I was too young and naïve to grasp the ‘forever impact’ of some of them. Like Willie Nelson. I just hope that a piece of Willie’s greatness shines out through me, as a result of my quest to peer into how his success came to be. What an incredible influence some men and women ‘troubadour’ into future generations! I admire those who do.”

Mr. Palla also boasts awards for several national advertising campaign jingles for customers that include Ford, Purina, and Exxon.

Synopsis

How prepared are human beings to mine and live on the moon? Technically, there's little doubt we'll get there, but when we do, how will we cope with six percent gravity, no atmosphere, and the regolith?

"Murder on the Moon" exploits the spirit and mindset of the men and women who volunteer as the first lunar inhabitants. "Some people go crazy on the moon, others have to be crazy before they'll even show up here."

Then there is the glaring question, "You brought a gun to the moon?"
The unashamed answer, "Yeah, you didn't?"

Author, Ray Palla is an Amazon favorite novelist with three five-star hits to his acclaim.

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.
