From the Author
By the time I withdrew it I had written other material and felt I was doing a better job as a writer so I wanted to present the fresh material first. I eventually did go back and edit this book and add a lot of new material as well as cut out whole chapters.
It is probably well I published it electronically because it is a honking big book. A publishing house would have a hard time deciding to risk the money to publish such a big, expensive to print book as an author's first.
I have two other books and a collection of shorts published, but this is also the first book for which I am writing a sequel.
About the Author
A life long time reader of Science Fiction, the authors at Baen's Bar and their evening chat room motivated him to try his own hand at writing. His first paid effort was a short story titled "Common Ground" which sold to the short-lived Jim Baen's Universe.
"April" is his third novel.
His personal favorite book is "The Mote in God's Eye" by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle. Other favorite authors include Michael Z. Williamson and C.J.Cherryh.
