I just pushed the button to release Dundee Orbital on July 31, 2020. It will be ready for pre-orders by tomorrow.
This book is only 64,000 words and contains four independent stories that all take place on Dundee Orbital. With these new stories are some new characters that will also appear in the next book in the Tri-Cluster Confederation series.
I’ve started the next full-length novel in the Tri-Cluster series, tentatively named, The Prodigals. That name may change depending on the plot I’m working on.
For the curious ones, here’s the blurb for Dundee Orbital.
Dundee Orbital is the mercantile hub of the Tri-Cluster Confederation. Millions of entities pass through the station and each has a story.
The Face on the Barroom Floor. Donal Harris has a mystery on his hands. He has a murder victim with no fingerprints, no hair, eyebrows, ears and only a smooth oval head with no identifiable features. His DNA is not registered and he has perfect teeth. Who killed him, why, and who is he?
Homegoing to Hollowell. Dee-Ell Davies wants just one thing—to go home to Hollowell and he’ll do anything, even defy death, to make that happen.
The Fenian. Fen is a naval intelligence agent who has chased his quarry across human space to Dundee Orbital. Is this the end of the chase? What does Fen’s fugitive want in Dundee Orbital? Fen, Donal Harris, and Elspeth Harris are determined to discover why and thwart the spy’s plans.
Li’l Annie. Annie Griffin is a bounty hunter who arrives at Dundee Orbital with four fugitive warrants. Senior Patroller Henry Hillman is assigned to observe her pursuit and insure the proper protocols and procedures are followed. However, propinquity leads to a growing relationship. When Henry and Annie are wounded capturing their last fugitive, that relationship deepens.
If Annie wants to stay on the station, she needs a new job. Her tenure as a bounty hunter is over and it’s time for her life to take a new direction, but what to do? She only has one skill. Is there a demand for it?
