My sixth novel, Changing Course, comes out in November. But it will be on special pre release for Women’s Week in Provincetown in October.
I just finished the proofs for it. (Proofs are your last chance to make sure it’s clean and there aren’t any spelling errors or gross inconsistencies.)
This is my first foray into true sci-fi, where everything takes place on another world. Like many authors I’m not always sure about a novel; if it took on life with zest, or mewled its way into the world, sickly and whiny.
After proofing, I’m happy to say I like it. I like the characters, I like some of the lines I spent real time on getting right, and I like the world I created. And I’m glad I still dealt with deeper issues that are important to me: social class, difference, poverty, slavery. But as usual I play with these topics through the characters and where they come from, which dictates much of their behaviour.
And of course there’s a romance. Obviously. ❤️
Changing Course is available for pre order now, or you can pick up a signed copy at Women’s Week, if you happen to be about.
When a simple mission goes wrong, intergalactic space captain Jessa Arbelle nearly goes down with her ship.
