This month has been a little crazy with a new release, a passing of a friend, blogging, and day job stuff. All of you have done so much for me. You’ve helped get me through some rough spots. Now it’s my turn to return the favor. Please let me know what I can do to help you feel secure. A shout out? A blog post? A friendly email? Anything, I’m here for you.
I’m SOOO excited about M. Pax’s new book, Backworlds III. The minute she referenced Firefly, I was completely hooked. Yep, I’m a total Browncoat. Heck, my Neumarian Chronicles series is totally inspired by Firefly.
Okay, here is Boomtown Craze (The Backworlds)!
In the far future, humanity settles the stars, bioengineering its descendents to survive in a harsh universe.
To secure his future, Craze must propel his world into a more prosperous era. Only days away from the grand opening of his new and improved tavern, he is confronted by a loony Backworlder intent on mucking up his plans. Gaunt and trembling, she claims her spaceship is possessed. She also has a connection to the underworld that shakes loose the dark past of one of Craze’s closest friends. It all threatens to end Craze’s prosperity before it begins.
Meanwhile off world, Captain Talos works desperately to outwit the mercenary Jixes and lure them away from his and Craze’s budding prospects. The mind-control weapon Talos uses against them is wearing thin, and his next move may be his last.
Will Craze and Talos’s efforts bring about a grand new age of boom or damn them to forever struggle in the dust?
