Author Interview Hunter No More Tour

I’m hosting an interview with G.D. Tinnams, author of science-fiction “Hunter No More”. Welcome to my blog!

1) Have you been writing for a long time? What inspired you to start a writing career?

I’ve been writing as long as I’ve been reading, so about thirty years. It wasn’t a career as such, still isn’t actually as I have a day job, it’s more of a passion. When you love writing you just have to write.


2) Is Hunter No More your first book? If not, please tell us a little about your first book.

No, it’s the second I completed. My first novel ‘Threshold Shift’ I self-published a couple of years ago. It was a bit of a sci-fi western with aliens being subjugated by humans and fighting back. There was also a complicated father son relationship and some high sci fi concepts like shared consciousness and uplifted alien intelligence.
3) Why did you choose science-fiction as genre for your book?

Science Fiction offers so many avenues to explore, so many themes and ideas which can be interpreted and questioned in an infinite number of ways. It has rules and yet no rules. When I tried to write fantasy as a teenager it was hugely derivative. It just felt too constraining.
4) Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?

Keep writing and always finish what you start. No matter how bad it seems at the time, if you come back to it after a month or two it will look a lot better. It will also be something you can play with, mold it into a good story. Simply put – ‘Expand what works, cut out what doesn’t.”

5) Do you have any works in progress you’d like to tell us about?

Just ideas, but I intend to keep attacking it until it happens. I can’t really give you full details of what it’s about because besides the rough idea it is subject to change. All I can say is I’m a big fan of 50s sci-fi and I want to do something in that vein. We’ll see what it looks like after the magic has happened.

About The Book

Hunter No More CoverTitle: Hunter No More

Author: G.D. Tinnams

Genre: Science Fiction

-ATTENTION- 
 

The Hunter Class Spacecraft designated ‘The Amberjack’ disappeared during a routine mission to Seek, Locate and Destroy the enemy Machine Mind contingent known as ‘The Ochre’. Conclusion: It was either destroyed by the Ochre or went rogue for reasons unknown. If sighted, approach with extreme caution.

On the planet Borealis, a violent revolution forces Samantha Marriot and her parents to flee their home for the relative safety of ‘The Rainbow Islands’. Once there, Sam discovers a secret her father has been keeping from her all her life, a secret that will change everything.

Meanwhile, The Machine Mind Hierarchy of Earth dispatches a ship to rid themselves of the planet’s troublesome human population. The only hope of a defence lies with a damaged binary Hunter unit that has long since abandoned both its programming and weaponry.

In order for the unit to succeed it must call upon the aid of an ancient enemy, and prove, once and for all, that it is a Hunter no more.
