Authors Not-So-Anonymous Week #8

Welcome everyone to the eighth Authors Not-So-Anonymous weekly meeting!! This weekly series is about authors from Twitter and Facebook!  This week, I would like to introduce Martin Perry into Authors Not-So-Anonymous!

Martin Perry is a science fiction author who also loves to play/review video games.  He began writing about five years ago, but only started writing fiction in January of 2011.  Martin's characters come alive in his novels like very few sci-fi novel characters do.  "I’ll pay attention and learn from anything where the characters actually feel like real people rather than just two or three line summaries of whole character traits."  After reading Gentle Reminders by Martin Perry, it's easy to see how he turned his passion for sci-fi into a writing career.  His writing inspiration is derived from Star Wars, the Mass Effect franchise, Star Trek, Philip K. Dick, Kevin Smith, and Douglas Coupland.

"Forever War by Joe Haldeman is my all-time favourite science fiction novel.  It’s very much a reflection on the Vietnam War, and studies how people can be dislocated from ordinary life by being sent off to war.  It’s as relevant now as it has ever been."  His favorite author is Douglas Coupland because he too strives to create real-life people with his writing skills.

Book 1 can be purchased for only $.99! Click on the title or use the Amazon Shop tab above.

(description from Amazon)
In a universe where humans interact with hundreds of other species, the Jump Cannon stands as one of the most highly regarded mercenary ships of known space. However, when one of their crew is kidnapped, an old enemy and a new foe threaten not only the ship, but the future of every race.

Silently hunted by The Gentle Reminder, facing constant physical and mental challenge, the close-knit crew of the Jump Cannon battle on a journey of discovery, which will have life changing consequences for Maur Rosewell, his closest allies, and all of the Legacy Universe.
