THE TRANSPLANTS

“The Transplants is selling briskly on Amazon.com. Thanks to everyone who’s purchased a copy. For those who haven’t yet; remember, you don’t need a Kindle device to read the Kindle edition. Just download the free Kindle app from “The a Transplants” book page on Amazon.com. Also e-books make great gifts, especially for people far away like troops serving overseas. All you need is an email address.

For those of you who don’t generally read SciFi books, “The Transplants” isn’t your normal SciFi novel. No aliens with superpowers, no little green men; just a story about two people from another planet who look just like us in search of a planet where they can save their species and live anonomyous lives. On the run from the U.S. government that wants to lock them away and study them and from foreign governments that want to do the same, they survive, evade and escape across two continents before a final confrontation with their pursuers, It’s a SciFi story by definition, but it’s much more. It’s a love story, an action adventure story, and a Washington, D.C. bureaucratic politics story.

Try it you’ll like it. If you don’t, I’ll provide verified purchasers their money back.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty soon other matters took second place to my desire. A fast paced thriller that puts a human face on science fiction. The more I read the harder it was to put Transplants down. Pretty soon other matters took second place to my desire to finish the book. When I did I was exhausted, pleased with the final twists and turns, but left wanting more. Given the author’s background Rion and Sena’s being discovered by the Chinese would make for an excellent next chapter in their story. Sequel! Sequel!

    Five Stars: Pacing excellent – it just keeps building suspense.
    Somebody has been doing a lot of thinking… Wow – what a read. Sexy aliens, national security angst, creditable intelligence field work. Pacing excellent – it just keeps building suspense. No gore, no nonsense. Just a gripping, “what next” read that stretches
    one’s imagination. Loved it!

    An out of this world topical read for this holiday season. A wild ride through the eyes of two space travelers who crash land on earth. A very compassionate story of these two lovers takes the reader on a voyage from one end of the earth to the other. Conspiracy theory fans will enjoy as well as all those who hope that all turns out well in the end.

    Advertising your novel is as challenging as writing it. If you’re Bill O’Reilly with numerous number-one best sellers you can plug your book every night on your TV show. For the writers who arent famous its a lot more work. You have social media, but you can only reach a limited number of people. If you have your own web and blog sites, you can post ads and updates on them; and you can always pay a teenager to stand on a street corner wearing a sandwich board. Word-of-mouth advertising is the best, but the writer has no control over that. He or she just has to write a good book and hope people talk about it. Hope you’re all talking. Check out the ads I’ve done on my column pages on EWRoss.com.

    A friend asked me why I chose Rion and Sena from the planet Auria as my protagonists in “The Transplants.” I told them I began working on the novel with the premise that I wanted to do three things beside entertain the reader. I wanted to address how we (human beings) react to people we don’t know and understand. I wanted to consider how intelligent extraterrestrial life that looks like us might affect our perception of God and religion. And I wanted to examine how they might react to us. Of course I needed attractive, compelling characters, but I wanted to avoid superheroes. I also didn’t want space aliens that came to lecture us on our evil ways. Rion and Sena are extraordinary, but they are neither arrogant nor judgmental. Their goals is to save their species from extinction and live happy anonymous lives. The society they came from on Auria was much like our own, albeit more advanced and therefore having confronted many of the problems we are beginning to confront.

    Loved the book in every respect. It was thought provoking, adventurous, and fun. The characters were so well developed that you identified with them and even the protagonists eventually became one of the good guys. The story flowed easily so that each chapter added to the adventure and your excitement to read thru to the end made it difficult to accomplish my daily chores.

    I also started thinking about the planet Auria and how this advanced planet of science and technology had discounted and discouraged any conversation on the existence of God. Was this in our future?

    Also liked the idea of diamonds being used as interstellar currency but were they natural or synthetic? Had the advanced Auria developed machines and methods to create diamonds as large as five carats as mentioned in the book? Currently, most man-made diamonds which pressurizes pure carbon (as opposed to synthetic “diamonds”) are less than one carat.

    Much to look forward to in the future of mankind.
