Q&A: Tell me about this Gunners of the White Cliffs book.

What’s the genre? Is this science fiction or fantasy?

Author: The Gunners Trilogy has touches of SF and fantasy, but the main story and plot lines are neither. It’s an adventure/suspense story.

The dual time frame and the special abilities of some of the characters set the scene for an action story with subthemes of hidden strengths, breaking out of externally imposed limits, and connections.

The story itself is grounded in this world. It’s a vision of what might come of things in the very long term, and how now relates to then. But it’s not a tome on the future of mankind, or a morality tale. It’s an adventure story; it’s fast-paced, and is intended to be entertaining.

Is this a post-apocalyptic story? Are we looking at a bleak, ruined future?

Author: No, this is not at all in that genre. I won’t give away the story, but there are no elements of The Road or Mad Max in Gunners. The time frame plot element is interesting in a different way.

There seem to be some strong female characters. Is this a book for women?

Author: Yes, and for men. There are strong female characters (and strong male characters, by the way), but it’s not chick-lit or romance, and the female characters are not “girlie” in the obnoxious sense of being silly, annoying, and weak. I bristle at that particular stereotype.

Where can I get the book?

It's available in paperback and ebook formats on Amazon. For a limited time it's available for Kindle Unlimited, so if you are a subscriber, you can read it for free.

When is the second book coming out?

Author: Target is early 2018, and the third book late 2018. The writing is done, but of course there is a lot more work to do to get the books ready for print.

I have a different question. How do I send it?
