I can’t believe how fast the time is flying. Where has the month gone? Oh wait, I know! I’ve been busy getting THE STAR THIEF ready for publication. I can’t believe it’s out in 3 weeks!
The response from you guys has been phenomenal. I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this book with all of you. I mean, writing a new adult sci-fi space opera romance was amazing, but knowing that there are so many of you waiting to read it? Even better!
I still have a few preview ARCs available if anyone would like a review copy. I’m planning on sending them out this week, so just leave me a comment and let me know if you want to be included.
And even better, I’ll have a fun give away starting on Monday. I went a little crazy with the swag for this book because I love it so much. I can’t wait to see if you guys love it too 🙂
But…in the mean time, Goodreads is hosting a STAR THIEF giveaway – 5 paperback copies are available. You can enter using the widget in my sidebar or enter directly on the Goodreads site. And of course don’t forget to add it to your TBR list!
And now I leave you with a little snippet of THE STAR THIEF!
Renna crouched at the door of the safe room and gazed at the glowing pad. Well, well, what was this? The tech was something she’d never seen before. Homegrown, probably developed in-house by Dr. Aldani’s team.
She grinned and cracked her knuckles. Picking a new lock was like having sex with someone for the first time. Sure, it was a little awkward learning all the ins and outs, but the thrill of discovery more than made up for it. Carefully, she sliced into the system, each movement checked and double-checked before she proceeded with the crack. Wires and cyberware wove throughout the device in elegant circuits. Challenging, even for her.
Renna’s stomach fluttered, and she took a deep breath. She hadn’t felt like this in years. Since her first major safe crack, to be exact.
It was her first job after leaving Blur’s gang, and she’d lied to get the contract, assuring the mark she’d broken through dozens of chemocyclic locks. She’d practiced at home for a week before going in, memorizing every circuit, every route through the lock, every wire and pin. And when she was there, crouched in the CEO’s office, she’d felt it. The surge of adrenaline, the feel of power that kept her coming back for more. It had taken her forty-five seconds to get through the safe and retrieve the datapad. Another two minutes to get back outside undetected. And three days to come off the high she’d gotten from finishing the job.
Blur had bought her a bottle of Scottish whiskey to celebrate.
Renna steered her mind back to the task at hand. One slipped wire could alert the whole compound. A few more seconds, and she heard the dulcet sounds of the safe turning off. She was in.
She slipped a single case of the microchips into her pocket, and a rush of adrenaline made her whole body tremble. No need to be greedy. Each of these babies would earn her a small fortune.
