To get out of debt, spacer Jake Bonner takes on two odd jobs. The first, chauffeur pop star Evvie Martini on her tour; the second, helping Daniel and Clarissa Rosen overthrow their planet’s tyrannical ruler. Unfortunately for Jake, Evvie finds out about his second assignment and, hoping to advance her career, invites herself to the revolution. From there the absurdity grows for Jake and his band of “freedom fighters.” Expert Assistance pokes fun at revolutions, pop culture, and some of the cliches of sci-fi.

What they're saying about it:

"Sit back and imagine, if you will, a story where Lazarus Long, Hannah Montanna, and Marvin the Paranoid Android on prozac get together to liberate a planet. Got that image in your head? Sounds like fun doesn't it? Yep. Reading it was fun, too."--Amazon Reviewer

"Jake is a space jockey for hire. Odin is his self-aware super spaceship computer. Evvie is the pop star he has to escort on her music tour so he can pay off his debts to get to the real gig, a revolution on a planet that just happens to have the richest gold and silver deposits in the solar system. This is a fun, cheeky, romp through space."--Amazon Reviewer
