Starry Nights Blog Hop

I’m so pleased to be taking part in the Science Fiction Romance Brigade’s Midsummer Blog hop! The theme this year is Starry Nights, which I thought was particularly apt – considering my latest book is called The Star Thief! To celebrate, I’m sharing the reunion kiss between Renna my heroine, and Captain Finn from my upcoming book – Athena’s Ashes – which will be out in August. They’ve been apart for a few weeks, and weren’t sure if they’d ever see each other again. Enjoy! At the end I’m offering a prize – a digital copy of my scifi romance The Star Thief.  All you need to do is leave a comment telling me what book you’re most looking forward to reading this summer. Please make sure you leave your email addy (in the format name at email dot com if you prefer) for your chance to win here. For the Grand Prizes, just into the Rafflecopter at the end and enter your information – details on that at the end of the post. Good luck and enjoy!     Finn’s voice deepened and he leaned forward to rest his hands on the table across from her, his gaze at her eye level. “I’ve been thinking about what comes next since you left.” He looked like he wanted to devour her for lunch. Renna swallowed. “You know what I mean.” “I hate that you left as we were getting to know each other again. I missed you, Renna.” He smiled wolfishly. “Obviously you missed me too, if you took control of the Athena to get us back here.” Heat blossomed...

Cover Reveal – Fortune’s Risk (A Star Thief Novella)

So, a few weeks ago, Hafsah at Icey books held a cover reveal for Athena’s Ashes, the sequel to The Star Thief. (You can still stop by and enter to win a copy!) I am SO happy that so many of you liked it – thank you all for the kind words! I’m really excited about sharing this book with all of you. But, I know that it’s still a few more months before the planned release date at the end of August which can be frustrating when you’re waiting for a sequel. (If you still haven’t picked up a copy of The Star Thief, I’ll be putting it on sale for one day only – June 14th! So keep an eye out for the announcement!) So for those Star Thief fans who need something to tide them over, I’m happy to announce that I’ll be releasing a novella in early July that bridges the gap between the two books (though it’s mostly standalone). And today I wanted to share the cover with you. I’m in love with it. My designer did another amazing job! We went back and forth for a while on the concept, but I think what we came up with works really well! What do you guys think?   Captain Nick Finn has spent the last seven years trying to escape his drug-running past and become the perfect MYTH soldier. At the peak of his military career, he should be leading missions to capture the galaxy’s most wanted criminals. Instead, he’s stranded on a stolen MYTH ship with Viktis, a notorious pirate and an unlikely...

A Cover Reveal, an Update, and a Short Story walked into a bar…

Hello Lovelies! This is one of those posts about everything and nothing, so please for give me if I’m all over the place! This week was awesome. The amazing Hafsah at Icey Books unveiled the cover of my next Star Thief Novel – Athena’s Ashes. Stop by and check it out and you can enter to win an ARC! You can also add it to your Goodreads list here. My amazing cover designer Christa and I finalized the final cover for Fortune’s Risk – the bridge novella between Star Thief and Athena’s Ashes. It follows Finn and Viktis while they’re on the run from MYTH. It’s got adventure, suspense, and even a little unexpected romance! I plan on sharing the cover soon. But in the mean time, you can add it to Goodreads. (Also – if you haven’t signed up for my newsletter yet, you may want to. There will be a special treat for my subscribers just before Fortune’s Risk comes out! And I promise I’ll never spam you.) I’m also going to be taking part in the SFR Brigade’s Starry Night Blog hop in June. Stay tuned for more details, there are some amazing giveaway items! Ok, I think that’s it. Now back to the revision cave! Hope you’re all doing well and for my US friends, have a Happy Memorial Day weekend!     Blog this!

An Update and a Shiny New Story

I’ve been feverishly working on the sequel to The Star Thief, so I haven’t been around the internet as much as I’d like, but I wanted to give a quick update on something else fun coming soon. In between edits, I’ve been working on a spin off short story that bridges the gap between the ending of The Star Thief, and the beginning of Athena’s Ashes. Fortune’s Risk will be a stand alone short story that you won’t *need* to read between the two, but will just provide a little fun before the darkness of the second book. Even better, it’s going to focus on two of my favorite characters – Captain Finn and Viktis the pirate as they’re on the run together. Talk about conflict! I’m hoping to get it out early this summer, so keep an eye out! And if you sign up for my newsletter, you might just get it a little earlier than everyone else! And just to give you a teaser, here’s the potential opening. It’s still a bit of a work in progress, so this may end up changing 🙂   [blockquote source=”Fortune’s Risk”]   Captain Nick Finn raised an eyebrow at the Ileth pirate lounging in the captain’s chair.  He knocked the alien’s booted feet off the railing where they were propped. “You want me to do what?”   “Help me throw a poker game.” Viktis sat up and glanced around the bridge, lowering his voice so the rest of the Athena’s crew wouldn’t hear him.
