Connecting HQBlurb:

There’s not enough peppermint schnapps to save me from what’s coming.

In less than a year, my brother and I will freeze to death, unless we starve first. Experts have created biodomes, built tunnels, and rationed food and fuel to make the end more tolerable, for a bit.

When Lon of planet Kaipra contacts me, claiming he has the key to our survival, I have to listen. He’ll help humans survive the ice age, but at the ultimate cost—I must agree to leave my brother, my friends, and the entire planet I call home to travel across the galaxy with him.

Can I trust him?

What are his plans with me?

And do I even have a choice?

You’ll keep turning the pages of this apocalyptic alien novel, because it’s filled with action, adventure, and an across-the-galaxy romance.

Departing HQ ROUGH Blurb:

My choice: Rotting in prison on a dying Earth or traveling the galaxy with unknown aliens.

Easy decision.

Especially since one alien has been visiting me in my dreams. Showing me that he loves me.

The Earth is in the midst of another ice age, and humans will be extinct in six months. If I get on that space ship, I have a chance at surviving. 

And I’m a survivor.

On board the ship, a deadly disease is spreading among the aliens, wiping out three-quarters of their population. It appears to be a virus, but as the aliens begin to die, we wonder if it’s something else.

I’m safe on this ship of criminals because I have the protection of my alien dream lover…except when he contracts the disease himself, it’s only a matter of time until I’m on my own.

Surviving LQ

ROUGH Blurb:

Humans only have months left on Earth. They have left their salvation to an alien ship filled with criminals.

But when the ship lands on the unknown planet of Noetov, who better than criminals to fight for whatever it takes to save our species.

With the man I have been (literally) dreaming about for over a year at my side, I know I can accomplish anything.

But the man I love is also the inhabitants of Noetov’s life-long enemy. When he’s captured, I know I’ll do anything to save him…even sacrifice the salvation of my home planet.

Returning HQ

ROUGH Blurb:

Earth is dying, but I have the key to it’s survival.

Time is ticking, with only three months left on Earth, and I must cross galaxies to return home, only there are a lot of unknowns in the universe…

Like meteor showers.

Unknown wormholes.

And, of course, space pirates.

Can we get back before my entire species freezes to death?
