First things first, Jessie Mihalik’s new book is out.
Interplanetary intrigue and romance combine in this electrifying finale to the Consortium Rebellion series.
As the youngest member of her High House, Catarina von Hasenberg is used to being underestimated, but her youth and flighty, bubbly personality mask a clever mind and stubborn determination. Her enemies, blind to her true strength, do not suspect that Cat is a spy—which makes her the perfect candidate to go undercover at a rival House’s summer retreat to gather intelligence on their recent treachery.
Cat’s overprotective older sister reluctantly agrees, but on one condition: Cat cannot go alone. Alexander Sterling, a quiet, gorgeous bodyguard, will accompany her, posing as her lover. After Cat tries, and fails, to ditch Alex, she grudgingly agrees, confident in her ability to manage him. After all, she’s never found a person she can’t manipulate.
But Alex proves more difficult—and more desirable—than Cat anticipated. When she’s attacked and nearly killed, she and Alex are forced to work together to figure out how deep the treason goes. With rumors of widespread assaults on Serenity raging, communications down, and the rest of her family trapped off-planet, Catarina must persuade Alex to return to Earth to expose the truth and finish this deadly battle once and for all.
But Cat can’t explain why she’s the perfect person to infiltrate hostile territory without revealing secrets she’d rather keep buried. . . .

I like Jessie’s work, so if you are like me and you’ve been waiting for something new and awesome to give you a mental break, check it out.
We are working on Ryder full speed and you should have a large chunk coming to you this week. Gordon still wants to tweak it, otherwise it would have gone out today. We have picked the series and title, but we can’t tell you yet.
Since Kid 2 is moving to Austin, we have taken back our office and are having it renovated, since it badly needed it after it flooded last year. Now it has a new floor and the bookcases are arriving today, which means Gordon and I will need to get out the screw drivers and allen wrenches. I am very relieved to have the office back. I really need separation of working and leisure space, because otherwise I spent 95% of my awake time in one room.
Part of the renovations involve extending the bathroom. The office shares a wall with a garage and since the garage apartment is small, the hook up for laundry and extra bathroom is located int he garage. The bathroom was in an awful shape, but it’s getting steadily prettier. Office with the bathroom. Oooo, sparkles.
I am desperately trying to be entertaining here, but I’ve got nothing. All I’ve been doing in the past week is work and chores. It’s this weird phenomenon where I have a long to do list and I keep knocking things off, but it’s not getting shorter, because new things keep piling up.
The latest thing is to find an artist who can do some art for the website. The redesign is underway, and I need headers. All the headers. I found this one guy on art station, emailed him a couple of times, and got no reply. I’m kind of dejected because his art was so pretty.
While we’re on the subject, look at this one: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/26K0g
Is this the Edge or what? I also liked this one.
I wish we could license something of this caliber. Anyway, work calls, have to go.
