Happy Book Birthday to Gerald Brandt!

courierfinal-coverPlease help us congratulate Gerald Brandt on today’s release of his debut science fiction THE COURIER!

Kirkus listed THE COURIER as a “Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Release To Look Forward To.”

The Barnes & Noble Science Fiction and Fantasy blog gave it this stunning review, “The Courier is lean and mean as Kris’s rugged ride, ripping through plot and world-building at a relentless pace, which makes its quieter and more contemplative moments all the more striking, giving us just enough time to catch our breath before Kris has to hop on her bike again and get moving. Brandt has created a darkly gripping vision of the future, and we hope to explore the strata of San Angeles in many more novels to come.”

THE COURIER is Book #1 in the SAN ANGELES series
Kris Ballard is a motorcycle courier. A nobody. Level 2 trash in a multi-level city that stretches from San Francisco to the Mexican border—a land where corporations make all the rules. A runaway since the age of fourteen, Kris struggled to set up her life, barely scraping by, working hard to make it without anyone’s help.

But a late day delivery changes everything when she walks in on the murder of one of her clients. Now she’s stuck with a mysterious package that everyone wants. It looks like the corporations want Kris gone, and are willing to go to almost any length to make it happen.

Hunted, scared, and alone, she retreats to the only place she knows she can hide: the Level 1 streets. Fleeing from people that seem to know her every move, she is rescued by Miller—a member of an underground resistance group—only to be pulled deeper into a world she doesn’t understand.

Together Kris and Miller barely manage to stay one step ahead of the corporate killers, but it’s only a matter of time until Miller’s resources and their luck run out….
