Triumphant Cover Reveal

And now, alas, for some shameless commercialism. Amazing how different it feels, though, when it’s my commercialism … noble, almost, or at least artistic and marvellously important, as opposed to crass.

Without further apology, here’s the cover reveal for The Triumph of Tompa Lee, my upcoming science fiction adventure with dollops of romance. Leave a comment to let me know what you think of the cover, or the book, or your book, or the weather–whatever. I’d love to hear from you!

In the beginning, there was hardcover.

A-Tompa hardcover

Then ebook and trade paperback.

B-Trial paperback

Along came a sequel.


And then there was…




…at long last…






…after many trials and tribulations…















The third book in The Trilogy of Tompa Lee, available July 29.

Preorder it now!

Tompa Lee — orphan, anti-social loner, and homeless street meat — has clawed her way up to the stars. There, on planet Zee Shode, she finds the galaxy’s greatest treasures: friendship and love.

Happily ever after? Not if the Galactic Trading Council has its way. The Council rules by divide and conquer, and Tompa commits the unforgivable crime of ‘forgery’—forging an alliance between humans, Shons, and Klicks. When the Council hires Lily Kilsing, earth’s most feared bounty hunter, Kilsing lures Tompa to a deserted alien city by kidnapping her fiancé and her best friend.

Can Tompa kill the huntress–or will she be forced to sacrifice her own life, trying to save her loved ones?
