Lt. Reilly and the Tansky Gambit
Matthew O. Duncan
Matthew O. Duncan is part of the resurgence of Old School Sci-fi. His books are a mix of Military Sci-fi, Fantasy, Romance, and Mystery weaved together with non-stop action.
Captain Tansky has been charged with treason. She violated the treaty with New Terra and now faces a death sentence. It’s up to Lt. Reilly and Major Mitchell to learn the truth about what really happened and why the fleet's most decorated Captain would sacrifice her life in an act of betrail to the Alliance.
Fans of future military sci-fi
This is book #4 of a series. It needs to match the style of the other three books. One idea is a large battleship (think in the style of Battlestar Galactica) out in space or over a planet. Idea two is to have a black ship (Dropship style) over a planet. Idea three - a ship in a nebula. Background can be dark or black so the focus is on the ship.
What to avoid
No people or aliens. No space battles in this one.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
mattoduncan collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
