The Horde, by Patrick Scaffido
I’d give you blurb for this one, but I’ve also been contracted to write that and it has yet to be finalized. If you’d like more information on this story, view the F.A.Q. You on Patrick’s website.
“How far would you go for love?
Since losing her parents at 14, young prodigy Dr. Lydia Ashley has focused on one thing: an appointment on the Deep Water Research Command Endure. Now 21, she’s about to realize that dream, but nothing is how she imagined it would be. Her transitional sponsor forgets her, her new lab is in complete chaos, and, as if that weren’t enough, she’s about to discover something so horrific it could potentially destroy all life on the planet.
Daniel Brewer, a noted playboy and genius in his own right, may be exactly what she needs… Or he may make everything worse.
Has she finally found a puzzle she can’t solve?” (via my other site)
Normally here is where I’d put in the book description, but it appears there isn’t one up anywhere! And, since this title is also not yet available, I don’t know that I am free to post what was given to me from the client. So, you’ll have to wait for that. I’ll update the post as the information is released.
Basically, this is another in the Garaaga’s Children series and follows the same basic template as the others. There was no reinventing the wheel here, so I don’t have a ton to say about it. But, it’s purty to look at, so here it is. From what I understand, this one will be launching at Balticon over Memorial Day weekend. I even got invited to the launch party, which makes me feel all kinds of special!
Hopeful my OMGWHAT panel schedule doesn’t keep me from attending. :)
“Scars. They remind us who we are, what we are and where we have been. But when a scar takes away your identity, what would you do to get it back? Jackson, a journalist in Houston, discovers links between several murders that have taken place in his city.

“Half of Sam Jeffrey’s best friend was discovered in the woods around the Paradise Palms trailer park. He is determined to figure out what happened.

That’s when the real adventure begins.” (back cover copy) [Read more…] about PARADISE PALMS
“Running a jazz club is hard, even with robot bartenders, but when a mysterious woman in white enters the Black Magic Lounge, Sal Mackelroy’s life gets even harder. At first it’s quick words and quicker dancing, but soon enough he finds himself chased by thugs with itchy trigger fingers. Just who is this dame in white, and why are people willing to kill to get her back? Nothing is what it seems in this neo-noir tale of action, mystery, and romance.” (via the description on Amazon.com) [Read more…] about THE DAME WORE WHITE
