August 3rd, launch date for Garbadon Major, is fast approaching and things are progressing well. Hopefully I’ll even have the book available for preorders this time around!
With all that in mind, here’s a blurb (still a work in progress but it’s a start, at least):
Jazz Healy is hunting bounties, forming a formidable duo with her gene-spliced cat, Rainbow Ninja. Currently, she’s deep in the bowels of the planetoid Kinon on the trail of Arteen Vendta, a scumbag with nothing much going for him except a long rap sheet.
Jazz doesn’t feel like she’s got much going for her right now, either. A few months ago a budding relationship broke down and the hurt she continues to feel has only reaffirmed her belief that it’s better to be alone. Still, while Rainbow Ninja is great, Jazz does find herself missing the type of company that she can hold a conversation with.
Cue the entry of Jazz Healy’s criminal kingpin mother with a job offer. A basic search-and-retrieve with excellent pay but Jazz knows things are never that clear-cut when Mother’s involved. Still, Jazz does find the idea of being needed attractive. Will she wise up before she finds herself strangled in Mother’s web?
Have I ever said that I hate writing blurbs? Well, maybe not hate. But I do find them extremely tough. Anyway, the above is what I’m going for this time around.
If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the cover art for Garbadon Major, courtesy of the exceptionally skilled L.E. Badillo:
It rocks, right? I really probably should’ve led off with it. But what’re ya gonna do?
Just in case you missed it, Garbadon Major drops August 3rd. There should be a preorder window of a couple weeks, too. I’ll keep you posted on that.
Thanks for stopping by!
