Today I’m going to indulge in a little self-promotion. This Saturday and Sunday, May 18 and 19, Ganwold’s Child will be FREE on Amazon.com!
Ganwold is the first book in my military science fiction trilogy, The Sergey Chronicles. All three books, including omnibus editions, are now available for both Kindle and Nook. I’ll provide the links below.
Most important, my royalties for all book sales in May will be contributed to Ben Wolverton’s medical fund. I posted about Ben a few weeks ago. He’s the 16-year-old son of my longtime friend and mentor, Dave Wolverton, and he had a serious longboarding accident in early April. Ben is making wonderful progress in his recovery, but his medical bills are expected to exceed $1 million, and his family has no health insurance due to preexisting health conditions. So many of us are chipping in to help out.
Ganwold’s Child originally was published by Tor Books in 1995. Since being released as an ebook, it has garnered several 5-star reviews. If you liked the original STAR WARS or know people who do, The Sergey Chronicles are the books for you.
Tristan grew up a human among aliens.
Now he must use his alienness to survive among humans.
The Sergey Chronicles, one military family’s saga and a large-scale epic of interstellar war, begin with the odyssey of Ganwold’s Child. Combat surgeon Darcie Dartmuth is taking her toddler son, Tristan, to rejoin her husband, Lieutenant Lujan Sergey, when their military transport is captured by alien slavers, the masuki. Darcie and Tristan manage to escape in a lifepod and land on Ganwold, home of the primitive and alien ganan. Tristan is barely eighteen when Darcie contracts a life-threatening illness. Accompanied by his gan “brother,” Pulou, Tristan sets out to seek help for her. When he ventures into an enemy colony, he is captured and turned over to Sector General Mordan Renier, his father’s nemesis, who uses Tristan as bait to trigger a new war for Renier’s lost homeworld. Now an Admiral and commander of the Unified Worlds’ special forces, the Spherzah, Lujan must repel Renier’s impending attack, realizing he could lose the family he has just learned is still alive.
Orson Scott Card, my mentor at the time, called Ganwold “A very good first novel in which a youngster plunges into a demanding military environment and is forced to find out just how good he is. This novel is exemplary for showing how the effective military mind really works—you’ll find no romantic military nonsense here.”
