Talia, a grunt tech worker, gets the job of a lifetime when she is hired by Roan, lead singer and business manager of an interstellar mega-star clash band, The Rampage. What she doesn't know is that The Rampage is a money making front for a population of landless, secretive cat shifters, and the job she is going to perform for them takes place on a planet in the midst of a deadly civil war. The job itself is simple data retrieval, on a system she knows well. Getting to the job--that is the issue! That is outside her comfort level. So is Roan.
This is a space opera and, yes, veres into sci-fantasy/mixedgenre/slipstream with my population of cat shifters. But I so love the white tiger shifter clan I wrote in the now unavailable Tiger Juice (paranormal romance). I decided to set the clan in the far far future. They are disgustingly athletic and fit, while Talia spends twelve hours a day in a float chair working a 3-d display, then returns home to her mentally diminished Grandpa. Her life is a dull grind with few things to look forward to.
Had a nice chat with fellow SFR author Kaye Manro about getting busy on something novel length and the idea is brewing that Starpath has enough meat in it to expand--so I may abandon the whole novella/submission call idea. Thoughts are brewing.
Other News--I'm one of the 10 Unknown Scifi Romance Authors You Should Read in Heather Massey's blog on Heroes and HeartBreakers! Thrilled and honored. Garsh.
Backlist News-- Have covers(scroll down a few blogs) for three out of contract works. Will be nice to have them for sale again--so weird to look at my Amazon page and not see books!
