Edge of Rebellion available on Kindle

Hi, peeps!

If you’re a Kindle type, you can get a copy of The Edge of Rebellion as we speak.


More venues to come (I’ll keep you posted!) and there will be print copies available at the upcoming GCLS conference if you’re going and print’s your thing.


Commander Kai Tinsdale knows something’s afoot when she receives orders to post to the military base Koto on the virtually impassable jungle planet Hanzey. Rumors of rebellion against the Coalition are spreading across the quadrants, and the threat of war makes Kai all the more suspicious about her assignment. What does Major Tinniset Vic, the ranking officer at Koto, want with Kai? How might the decade-old destruction of a Hanzien city pertain to Kai’s new posting?

The only person she trusts, former Academy bunkmate turned trader Torri Rendego, is running merchant routes in other quadrants and may be facing her own problems in the growing rebellion. So Kai must play the hand she’s dealt in a high-stakes game of intrigue and revenge where Major Vic holds all the cards and where a gamble could unleash a war all its own on Hanzey.

EXCERPT! and a review, if you’re interested.

Happy reading (hopefully), and happy writing. Oh, and happy Thursday!

Amazon was kind of awesome last night and got my latest novella loaded pretty quickly. Thanks, Amazon! That would be From the Boots Up, and you can go see what’s up with it at the handy-dandy linkie below:

From the Boots Up on Kindle

I’m always excited about new releases, but I’m also kind of angst-ridden. I blogged about that over at Women and Words yesterday, if you want to get inside a writer’s brain when it comes to new releases and writer angst (speaking for myself). But I am really stoked about this release. I’ve spent a long time with these characters, and I’m hoping you enjoy their company as much as I have.

What’s it about? Here:

River rafting guide and kayaking nut Dez Parker figures her best friend Mel Hammond just isn’t into her romantically, which bums Dez out because they’ll be spending the summer guiding together and Mel seems like the right kind of woman for her. Then again, Dez doesn’t want to ruin a friendship by admitting her feelings to Mel. That changes when she finds out that Mel might be interested in someone, and Dez is torn between wanting to take a chance and respecting Mel’s choice. Is it really too late for Dez? Or is there something she doesn’t know? Whichever it is, a summer on the river isn’t always a smooth ride.

So go spend some time with Dez and Mel. You might like it.
