Things are a little different this time around. While I've loved working with Red Adept Publishing on the first two books, Artificial Absolutes and Synthetic Illusions, I wanted to publish Virtual Shadows independently. This is both because I have a specific vision of how I want things to end, and because I want to accelerate the release date to get the book out in time for GenCon. However, since Red Adept also does independent editing, I'll be working with the same editor (Karen Allen, who is absolutely fantastic). I'm also hiring the same artist, Streetlight Graphics, for the cover and formatting.
Here's the book's description:
Life on the galaxy’s lawless Fringe isn’t easy. Nevertheless, Jane doesn’t regret sacrificing her comfortable life to protect the young man she loves. But the very place she took him for safety is slowly killing him, and her world is shaken again when her brother, Devin, reenters her life.
Determined to discover the identity of those behind a vicious bombing near his agency’s secret base, Devin defies his superiors and ventures into the dark corners of the universe. When he realizes that the attackers have their crosshairs on the mysterious woman who saved his life, the mission becomes personal.
Jane joins her brother on his quest and battles a chilling adversary hell-bent on destroying her homeworld. Entangled in a web of interstellar intrigue, virtual deception, and murderous agendas, Jane races to find answers—before the enemy wreaks devastation upon all she once knew.
