From Nova McBee! Book 3 in her Calculated series:

Activated (Book 3)

After her exploits in Tunisia, Jo Rivers knows she’ll never lead a normal life. She also can’t move on until she grasps the unexpected evolution of her mathematical gift and confronts her unresolved feelings after meeting Noble. With Kai undercover, Noble is the only one who has the answers Jo needs. There’s just one small problem: Noble has vanished, leaving only a coded message in the stars.

When Rafael, a friend from Jo’s days in China, goes missing, it coincides with a new PSS assignment involving a potentially catastrophic satellite breakdown. Jo suspects something more sinister is at play and has no choice but to track down Noble, who may be her only hope to find Rafael and prevent global chaos.

Traveling to the perilous Arctic of Finland, Jo and her band of prodigies team up with unlikely allies from her past to find out what or who is interfering with the satellites— before it’s too late. Trusting her gift, Jo follows a path of numbers that light the way…which leads to answers she didn’t predict.

Ron L Lahr has a new one!

You Get What You Steal

Meet CLOD, the most notorious outlaws in the galaxy. At least in their minds.

There’s Clint, the fuzzy green menace who left home to become a mercenary. As a plant, a polyped, and a genius, he filled three spots in their quota-driven minority-recruitment drive.

Leif, the performance artist and small-time smuggler, who lives boldly, unleashed from the fear and the basic common sense that make most lives so small. He’s not afraid to make any mistake once, or, as it happens, many, many times.

Then there’s Doris, the hidden brains of the group and a woman whom you underestimate at your peril.

Together, they learn the true meaning of Christmas.

Not really.

And! New from Jessica Turnbull:


What would you sacrifice to save the world?

In the future one thing keeps the entire planet going, the Gaia Machine. The only problem is that it feeds on the life force of people to run. This has led to certain people being born with the Gaia Gene, the ability to go into the machine for a full fifty-year cycle without fear of aging.

Cheyenne Meekai has the Gaia Gene and whether she wants to or not she’s going to have to save the world, but it might cost her everything in the process. The years served in the machine fly by for the person inside but outside life moves on, meaning when she gets out everyone she knows will either be elderly or dead.

Fifty years is a long time especially when you’re only sixteen, can she save the world and still have some sort of life, or will the demands of the Gaia Machine be more than she can handle?

Picture(s) of the Week:

Catticus is looking out the window — but for some reason, I think he’s more interested in the birds than my pretty blooming tulips.
