Here it is – the cover for Revenge Space…
The story is a little dark, but all my * SPACE stories are.
Here’s the blurb:
Officer Cordova is finally putting away the past, letting her guard down, and thinking about romance on Platform Eight… but the past doesn’t play nice and when the first body turns up, it looks like someone wants revenge…
I don’t know what it is. The roar of the jet engines. Gravity forcing me back in my seat. The sudden thrill in my stomach.
It’s adventure time.
Sometimes it’s been for a vacation, sometimes a funeral. This time a certification that will lead to a career change. I threw my white-collar money-making degree away 10 years ago, and now I’m throwing away the blue-collar adrenaline-rush great-stories-to-tell-at-parties job for money and respect. The Administration made it impossible for me to stay, but they don’t believe I’ll go.
Maybe I’m holding on to the hurt and bitterness that has festered all summer. Probably they won’t even notice I’m gone. But I’ll notice. Real paychecks. No more risking my life for the “victim” who will call me a corrupt murderer to the news. My daughter not calling me and asking if I’m safe because she knows I am. Real paychecks.
I’ll miss it. The adrenaline rush. The friendships. The I-made-a-difference stories. The thin blue line.
But it’s time. Let the new adventure begin.
