Vol 4 of PKM SF Series on Amazon and B&N

This SF adventure ricochets between prison breaks, conspiracy, shootouts, assassins, corrupt cops, conflicted love, and arcane mysticism, tempered by a motherly artificial interface. 
Angel careens from her safe career managing cargo in the Merchant Corps to dodging plasma charges and bombs. She's been stalked by a peculiar savant with an eerily similar history, who recruits her into the Marshals Service to corral the EU's gamier residents in the galaxy's frontier.
As marshal-pilot of the newly commissioned Tail Kicker, Angel stumbles from one ohcrap to another. The royal-blue armored vests the marshals wear are more like bull-red targets. They attract bad guys with a profound hatred for the elite officers of the Service. Angel's never taken a last name—Claypigeon would fit.
TAIL KICKER is the fourth volume of the PERSONA KORY MAE series.

Read a three chapter excerpt here. Download Tail Kicker for your Kindle or Nook today.

Blurb for TAIL KICKER...whaddaya think:

 

This SF thriller ricochets between prison breaks, conspiracy, shootouts, assassins, corrupt cops, conflicted love, and arcane mysticism, tempered by a motherly artificial interface. 
Angel, a dwarf raised in an institution, careens from her safe career managing cargo in the Merchant Corps to dodging plasma charges and bombs. She's been stalked by a peculiar savant with an eerily similar history, who recruits her into the Marshals Service to keep rein on the EU's gamier residents in the galaxy's frontier.
In her new life as marshal-pilot of the newly commissioned Tail Kicker, Angel stumbles from whoopin' to debacle. The royal-blue, armored vests the marshals wear are more like bull-red targets. They attract bad guys with a profound hatred for the elite officers of the Service. Angel's never taken a last name—Claypigeon would fit.
TAIL KICKER is the fourth volume of the PERSONA KORY MAE series.

Today's Favorite Passage

It wasn't the first time they were close to having a bitchslap fest. They were gravity and anti-gravity. Gravy and Velouté. Angel had no idea what Velouté was, but she read the word in a magazine and liked it—some kind of sauce. Velouté. Velouté.

Pix -- Pups Run Amok at the University

We hung out at USF this morning. Looked like we were going to get rained out, but we sneaked between the showers.

 I like clouds.
 "We like this place, Dad!"
 "Come on, Dad. Kepp up."
 Let's take a picture of trees
 Cool pine trees. How'd the grow in such straight lines. Hmmm.
 Pups like to run in open fields. I like to watch them.
 I like clouds
 Cool oak trees (That's Spanish Moss, for you non-Floridians)
 I like bright colors
 Some cool clouds over the Sun Dome
 Yeah...I like oak trees
 I like oak trees

 Cool...pipes
 Molly likes stairs
 I like clouds
 Did I mention, I like clouds
 I like palm trees
 I like flags
 On the way home...enjoyed more clouds

Hope you have a great week.
