Port Townsend, WA, April 20, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Class Act Books' April releases include a novel by a debut author and the sixth entry in a current SciFiction series.
This month's new author is Paul McDermott, writing from across the Pond, where his part of the United Kingdom was well immersed in intrigue during World War 2. Paul's novel, "The Spear of Destiny," is set during the last days of WWII.
Delving into Hitler's obsession with the supernatural, the scene is presented through the eyes of Überlojtnant Herbert Nollau, commander of U-boat U-453. With the war lost and surrender imminent, Nollau must decide whether to follow his orders - and deliver a mysterious package to an equally mysterious and unknown recipient - or listen to his conscience, and abandon the plan and follow the supernatural urgings of the secret artifact.
Paul lives in Liverpool where a great deal of history happened during the war. He was inspired to write The Spear of Destiny after the U-435 was refloated from the waters off Denmark where it had been sunk during the war, and has now been placed as a permanent exhibit in Liverpool’s Maritime Museum. Interviews with people who were members of the Danish Resistance (“Mødstandsbevægelsen”) and research in non-fiction accounts of major action in the North Atlantic give his novel an authentic tone.
Sinbad’s War is Book 6 of the popular scifi/space opera authored by veteran author Toni V. Sweeney. It was previously published and is now being re-released in an edited and expanded version by Class Act Books.
The Federation is again at war, having survived a surprise attack by the Severani, a barely-noticed planet sudden blooming with militaristic might. When his own planet is invaded and those he love perish in the following bombardment, Sinbad and his sons enlist in the fight, bringing with it startling acts of heroism and surprising discoveries affecting their lives when they return home.
Toni V. Sweeney currently has 53 novels in publication. As well as being a writer, she is a professional reader certified by netgalley.com, and a reviewer for the New York Journal of Books. Her current series, The Adventures of Sinbad, was previously awarded one of the Top Five Science Fiction series of 2014 by the Paranormal Romance Guild's Critics’ Choice.
