    New Books

    Coming in May
    Around midmonth, look for SWORD OF THE DAJJAL by Scott Saylors. This futuristic science fiction adventure pits 'the alliance,' with its local allies, against the 'panhuman league,' AKA 'space nazis.' Saylors combines space action like that of the best David Weber, political intrigue, and land-side battles as well. Check out this beautiful cover designed by Karen Leabo.

    I had a great chance to meet with many of you at the Romantic Times Convention in Houston. For those who missed it, Harlequin channeled me, giving a strong pitch for electronic books being the wave of the future (and increasingly the present).
