Halves and Half Nots Blurb Preview

 (Taken from the February 3rd Newsletter)

Hi, folks! I need some feedback. I've been working on the blurb for my next novel in the Spaceship Huey Adventures series. Halves and Half Nots is targeted for paperback release in the 4th quarter of this year, with an official ebook launch in January, 2024. The book completes a three-novel story arc and may or may not be the end of the series (more on that in a later post). This is not a romance--meaning I can't promise a happy ending--but it has romantic flavor, and I'm trying to emphasize such in the blurb. Here goes ...

A mighty armada. A fleet of pirates. Can a desperate shifter rally a band of cutthroats to save the human colonies ... and the woman he loves?

Clifford Crane's heart is being ripped out. He's fallen for his gorgeous, sharp-tongued partner--and she's about to leave forever. So, when an enemy armada delays her escape, he's determined to use the borrowed time to convince her to stay.

Heather Felton wants to run. The near-death of her partner on their last mission unearthed feelings--feelings that once ruined her. But when a crisis precludes her resignation, she finds herself captain of the Huey--facing a more dangerous foe--and responsible for the life of a man she can't allow herself to love.

If Clifford can get one more task off his plate--convincing a bunch of self-serving pirates to risk their lives for a good cause--he can focus on convincing her they have a future together. If Heather can lead his makeshift navy--a ragtag band of cutthroats who answer to no one--to victory over an invincible armada, she'll bury her feelings once and for all.

But first ... they both need to survive.

Can Clifford Crane and the SS Huey defeat an invincible armada, save the human colonies from a thousand years of subjugation, and find true love? Or will Clifford's hopes and dreams--along with the lives of his crew--be crushed under the heel of a soulless paramilitary corporation?

Halves and Half Nots is the exciting third book in the Spaceship Huey Adventures space opera series. If you like exotic worlds, quirky aliens, and a touch of romance, you'll love flying with the SS Huey.

So ... what do you think? Help me out. <Leave a Comment>
