First up is John Van Stry with his first book for Baen! Summer’s End
As always, click the cover for the Amazon link!
Sometimes a dark past can haunt you. Other times it just may be the only thing keeping you alive.
Fresh out of college with his Ship Engineer 3rd-Class certificate, Dave Walker’s only thought is to try to find a berth on a corporate ship plying the trade routes between the many habs, orbitals, and moons in the Solar System. The problem for Dave, however, isn’t his straight C average; it’s that his stepfather, a powerful Earth Senator he’s never met, now wants him dead.
Forced to take the first berth he can find, Dave ends up on the Iowa Hill, an old tramp freighter running with a minimal crew and nearing the end of its useful life, plying the routes that the corporations ignore and visiting the kinds of places that the folks on Earth pretend don’t exist.
Between the assassins, the criminals, and the pirates he needs to deal with, Dave is discovering that there are a lot of things out there that he still needs to learn.
But there’s one hard lesson he learned long ago that he’s being forced to remember: how to be ruthless.
I’m proud to say I was one of the beta readers for this! 🙂 It’s GOOD! And also available on Baen.com as an EArc.
And Amie Shultz just finished uploading The Haunted Libraries Anthology Volume 1!
This is the wrap for the paperback, which will be up as soon as proofs are received and approved. The Kindle copy will ‘hopefully’ be live today for $4.99. Remember, this is a BENEFIT for the Tom Burnett Memorial Library, so it’s for a GOOD cause!
And lastly, here’s the current iteration of the cover Tina is working on for Ranching in Colorado. It’s being looked at by the editor now and hope it will be live in a week or so.
It’s evocative of dealing with cattle in the snow, and makes me cold just looking at it!!!
Haunted Libraries is now on my Kindle.
Clicking on the cover didn’t take me to the book, but I easily found it by searching the title.
Perhaps your internet magician needs to adjust the link spell.
Summer’s End is one of the books in Baen’s December 2022 book bundle.
I’d read all three of Van Stry’s Hammer Commission series and enjoyed them.
I’ll make some purchases, Old NFO. Thank you.
John- I’ll fix that.
Absolutely love the cover, Thats exactly what it feels like with early spring calves.
Haunted Libraries 1 bought.
