I’m excited to join in the cover reveal of Operation Grendel by Daniel Schwabauer, who will be a guest writer here in October. His latest novel, releasing from Enclave Publishing in March 2021, is a standalone military sci-fi book and is available to pre-order in Limited-Edition Hardcover.
First the very cool cover, another of the great artistic works by Kirk DuoPonce.
And now the story:
It’s the war story he’s dreamed of. But the battle may cost him his mind.
Military journalist Raymin Dahl thinks he’s finally getting the story of a lifetime. Secret peace talks on a remote tropical moon are about to surrender five colonized worlds—and six hundred million civilians—to a ruthless enemy.
But when his commanding officer, Captain Ansell Sterling, is fatally wounded before the negotiations can begin, Dahl can no longer just report on the mission. He’s ordered to complete it. With help from the AI embedded in Sterling’s comms bracelet, Dahl must impersonate his commander—a Marine Corps hero and psychological operations expert.
However, Sterling’s AI may be luring him to surrender more than he realizes. And the mission Corporal Dahl thinks he’s running isn’t the only operation underway.
Yes, I’m interested, too. You may preorder the book in hardback, but if you’d like to wait, we may have an excerpt for a Fiction Friday in the near future.
If you have an Instagram account, you may want to share this cover and synopsis on your site. Be sure to include hashtags such as #militaryscifi #standalonebooks #preorder #coverlove #coverreveal #enclavepublishing #march2021 #danielschwabauer #speculativefiction #operationgrendel and #scifibooks.
Above all, tell any of your friends who are interested in science fiction, particularly military science fiction. The team at Enclave Publishing will be grateful, as will Operation Grendel‘s author, Dan Schwabauer.
