INVERSION POINT is out soon…

INVERSION POINT (Chaos Station #4) will be available on January 25, in fact! This week, though, Kelly and I are working on copy edits for the last book in the series, PHASE SHIFT, which will be out in May. I thought I’d share a funny little snippet…

Flick complied without a complaint. Like Zed, he was slightly dehydrated—and there was a minor muscle strain in his back. After checking the outside temperature again—forty-eight Celsius now—he made a noise of disgust and disengaged his bracelet. “You ever see that holo, the one with the prison planet that had virtually no atmosphere, so when the sun rose, it roasted the surface? If you weren’t in the shade, you were sausage.”

Zed turned to look at him. “No, I did not. Thanks for that thought. That’s exactly what I needed.”

“The story was pretty good.”

“Stop.”

“What? I’m just saying…”

“If I dream about roasted people during my nap, Felix, I’m not going to be happy.”

“Oh, we’re napping?”

Zed leaned more heavily against Flick. “Yeah. We’re napping.”

“Better tuck your hands and feet in closer so the sun doesn’t get them.” Zed could hear the smile in Flick’s voice.

“You are such an asshole.”
