In her childhood, Rose Franklin accidentally discovered a giant metal hand buried beneath the ground outside Deadwood, South Dakota. As an adult, Dr. Rose Franklin led the team that uncovered the rest of the body parts which together form Themis: a powerful robot of mysterious alien origin. She, along with linguist Vincent, pilot Kara, and the unnamed Interviewer, protected the Earth from geopolitical conflict and alien invasion alike. Now, after nearly ten years on another world, Rose returns to find her old alliances forfeit and the planet in shambles. And she must pick up the pieces of the Earth Defense Corps as her own friends turn against each other.

Published: Marie Andreas - July 20th, 2017

The galaxy was in for a world of hurt--chaos unseen since the violent, sadistic AsarlaI ruled. For the first time in her life, Vas doesn't know if she can fight hard enough to stop it.

 

 

 

Vaslisha Tor Dain was a simple sort of mercenary starship captain. She fought hard, drank hard, and killed people when all else failed. Those were the good days--blown to interstellar dust when a band of crazed monks tried to resurrect a race of long-dead homicidal rulers: the AsarlaI.

 

Vas and her crew defeated the first wave but at great cost, both professional and personal.

 

Now lying low, she's been taking tedious recovery jobs with a new ship, a new second-in-command, and a galactic government that has gone into hiding but is still on the hunt for her and her ship. But there are noises in the distant corners of the galaxy that the AsarlaI have found new allies and another way to come back from the great beyond. A painful and brutal way that will destroy worlds.

 

In the darkest night of deep space, if she sits too still and thinks too long, she still misses her former ship, scattered in pieces across the universe, and Deven, her former second-in-command, also scattered in pieces across the universe.

 

When what should have been an easy job with easy money backfires in her face, the cosmic conspiracy engulfs her again. The ghost--make that ghosts--of her dead lover appears, as do the deadly, long-gone AsarlaI who want their empire of worlds back, never mind that other beings live there. And Vas realizes lying low was never a possibility, not for the Warrior Wench, and never for her.

Death is final. Except when it isn't.
But the righteous in battle are always
VICTORIOUS DEAD.

Fistful of Rain is the sequel to 2017's South California Purples. Set in 1975, it is the story of a nation, a rural county, and a small town coming to terms with turbulent change. The theft of a rancher's livestock ends in an assault that escalates into arson, and the murders of nearly a dozen people. Residents of a "hippie" commune are accused of having committed the acts that have led the small county to the brink of a range war, and of feeding the tensions between generations. Sheriff Ty Dawson, a cattle rancher himself, finds himself at the center of a battle between town residents and the "hippies" who appear to be threatening their way of life, a struggle that leads both sides to violence.

Written with equal parts elegance and grit, FISTFUL OF RAIN is a fast-paced literary thriller populated by unforgettable characters, outstanding dialogue, and a setting that will have you wishing you could live in it long after the last page has been turned.

Published: Simon & Schuster - May 15th, 2018

From Jessica Knoll--author of Luckiest Girl Alive, the instant New York Times bestseller and the bestselling debut novel of 2015--comes a blisteringly paced thriller starring two sisters who join the cast of a reality TV series. One won't make it out alive. So...who did it?

 

When five hyper-successful women agree to appear on a reality series set in New York City called Goal Diggers, the producers never expect the season will end in murder...

 

Brett's the fan favorite. Tattooed and only twenty-seven, the meteoric success of her spin studio--and her recent engagement to her girlfriend--has made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her castmates.

 

Kelly, Brett's older sister and business partner, is the most recent recruit, dismissed as a hanger-on by veteran cast. The golden child growing up, she defers to Brett now--a role which requires her to protect their shocking secret.

 

Stephanie, the first black cast member and the oldest, is a successful bestselling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her hot, non-working actor-husband and his wandering eye, but this season the focus is on the rift that has opened between her and Brett, former best friends--and resentment soon breeds contempt.

 

The Favorite Sister explores the invisible barriers that prevent women from rising up the ranks in today's America--and offers a scathing take on the oft-lionized bonds of sisterhood, and the relentless pressure to stay young, relevant, and salable.
