Thank you to the author, C.W. Johnston, for reaching out about his latest novel and for the eARC copy of this book.



What if the very thing you wished for came true?

When small-town schoolteacher Robert Glass is announced as the winner of a nationwide contest designed to launch a civilian into space on an unprecedented solo mission, it appears that his lifelong fantasy has come true. His selection from thousands of applications has captured the world’s imagination.

It is no secret that the success of NASA’s wildly popular Instant Spaceman Contest could be the lifeline that salvages the President’s waning bid for re-election. As the countdown to launch begins and interest in the mission grows, nefarious adversaries and political enemies will stop at nothing to sabotage its success.

With his wife and son at his side, and blissfully unaware that he has become a pawn in a dangerous political game, Glass heads to Florida to begin an intense period of training for the epic twelve-day mission. As launch day approaches, and with the world on the edge of its seat, investigative journalist Derek Stevens uncovers a sequence of suspicious events that all point to a terrifying fact: Glass’s mission may have been compromised.

As millions of people watch the sleek spaceship effortlessly lift off from Kennedy Space Center, Stevens races against the clock to uncover the truth before it’s too late.

A riveting, page-turner, 12 Days is sure to grab you by the collar and pull you in.



Entertaining, edge-of-your-seat chills and thrills that will have you flipping through the pages in this fast-paced novel. I am no stranger to this author’s books and let me tell you, he has a style of writing that keeps you engaged and hooked on his books.

Robert Glass, a small-town husband and father that works as a teacher finds himself winning a contest that will change his life and fulfill one of his dreams – he has won a contest as a civilian to go into space on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to space on a solo mission, for 12 days. He cannot believe his luck. I mean, what are the odds that HE would win out of thousands of entries? Things are not always as they seem, and dark, mysterious forces are at play here. Political powers are at work, and Robert is caught in the very middle of it all, an innocent civilian. 

Robert and his family were a very relatable, likeable family. They were interesting and fun to read about and seemed like everyday, ordinary people. They were kind, sweet, thoughtful and loving. 

A fabulous novel that will pull you in from the first page, I recommend you look into this book! Happy reading!
