Father/Son Team Pen THE TINKER AND THE FOLD
LOS ANGELES, July 29, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ What began almost four years ago as a fun father/son writing project and teaching opportunity for Scott Gordon and his 13-year-old son, Evan, is now shape-shifting into a promising new Sci-Fi/YA franchise.
The Tinker and The Fold Part One: The Problem with Solaris 3, published by Laguna Lantern Publishing in 2015, has drawn attention for its daring young teenage protagonist, mind-blowing array of bizarre and deadly alien creatures, a well-thought-out plot and heart-stopping action sequences. The Tinker and The Fold- Part Two: The Rise of the Boe, is scheduled to be published on September 27, 2016 and will be available for pre-order at the end of August, 2016. The first book is currently available in all formats via Amazon.
"The idea germinated over the course of some long car rides and became a wonderful opportunity to create a whole universe with my son, Evan, while teaching him that with a little effort every day, you can do big things." says the elder Gordon, who is a prolific reader of science fiction and loves to attend Comic-Cons with all three of his children as cosplayers. By day, Gordon is an executive at a solar energy company in Anaheim, CA, and is a published author on that subject.
"Working with my dad has been such a great experience, me bringing the imagination and characters to life and him making sure that everything fits together and makes sense. It's an amazing feeling to know what we've accomplished," adds Evan.
The Tinker and The Foldis the story ofJett Joseph Javelin Junior, an eighth grader, whose scientific tinkering attracts the attention of The Fold, an extraterrestrial federation, tasked with keeping peace in the galaxy. When The Fold comes to collect him, Jett's life is thrown into chaos. From alien abductions, to life in Tower 100, to becoming a castaway on Lanedaar 3 and savior to the Boonans, to flooding the White House with living alien pom-poms that eat everything in sight, Jett's adventure to save Earth from The Neutralization Protocol and integrate it into The Fold is fraught with peril and surprises.
Of the first book, Kirkus Review wrote: "The fleet narrative never has any dead spots and boasts a clever range of aliens of all shapes, sizes, and appendages. It also has just the right balance of tongue-in-cheek (when a life form happens to have a tongue or a cheek) and serious elements when it comes to pondering moral issues and dilemmas. There is, naturally, a cliffhanger finale to draw readers into the next installment. Fun YA galactic romp that is not without its thoughtful side."
