“Comedy and Space Opera – a blast to read” (former editor Distant Suns magazine)
“a worthy tribute to Douglas Adams”  (prepub review)

It isn't easy being a female barkeep in the final frontier...especially when you’re also a spy!
Nell Romana loves two things: the Blue Angel Bar, and Dalamar, a notorious modern-day knight for hire.  Too bad he doesn't know she is actually an undercover agent. 

The bar is a magnet for all sorts of thirsty frontier types, and some of them don’t have civilized manners. That’s no problem for Dalamar, who is built like a warlord and keeps everyone in line. But when Dal is called away on a routine job, Nell uncovers a rebel plot to overthrow the Federation.  She has to act fast and alone.

Then the worst happens.  Her cover is blown …

  1. Awesome giveaway, Melodie. They sound like a fun read. I'm stopping by from IWSG to say happy A-Z and IWSG Wednesday.

  2. Thank you Joylene! I got permission from Alex at IWSG to skip the usual blog post and put up the book launch info, because I completely forgot my book was launching on the First Wed! Next month, I'll get back to posting comedy on writing.

  3. Hello Melodie! I'm from the ISWG Wednesday and your book sounds like my daughter would love it. She's a big sci-fi fan. I'll have to check it out :) Best of wishes on your launch!

    1. Thank you Tess - so nice to meet you! This book is PG, so I don't have to put out 'the warning' The Land's End series is a little racy.

    1. Thank you, Alex! I will be a model ISWGer next month, I promise. Thanks for popping by!

  5. A good day to self promote :)

    1. Yeah, Dolorah, I truly mucked up this one. My publisher picked April 1 as a launch date. Then someone told me "You gotta join ISWG, Mel - you'll love it." So I joined ISWG, not realizing when the first Wed. fell. So I emailed Alex in a panic, asking if I could remove myself from the list, and rejoin after. Alex said missing one wouldn't hurt, if I made sure to post next month. In the meantime, I am feeling like a total loser.
