Excerpt - Thrive Luna Regroup

Thrive Luna Regroup, Thrive Colony Corps Space Adventures Book 3.

Thrive’s Earth tour concludes on freaky Luna, where the hidden agendas of three worlds collide. Will their expedition end in triumph, or a rout?

Sass and Ben team up to tackle Luna, final world of their Earth junket. Disgraced, Sass seeks redemption. Cautious Ben haggles for life-altering technology in exchange for saving Mars.

Luna is the elder space colony, crowded and weird. Wage slaves scurry to pay air taxes, bombarded by augmented reality ads. Corporations rule, led by frail eunuchs old as Sass, cruel and cunning. Ben finds the jaded Loonies hard to relate to.

Yet the team is adopted by friendly folk on day one, eager to take them sightseeing!

Too bad they’re not Loonies. There’s a fourth player here. Will Sass and Ben get played?

Don’t miss the rollicking conclusion of Thrive’s Earth homecoming trilogy!

Excerpt - Thrive Earth Rematch

Thrive Earth Rematch, Thrive Colony Corps Space Adventures Book 2.

Are the boat nations Earth’s last hope?

Stranded without her starship, Captain Sass Collier takes refuge in Earth’s criminal underworld. Her sole sponsor, Northern League agent Melkor, shelters them with family among the vibrant floating cities and cruise ship hulks of drowned Florida.

But lively hurricanes at sea postpone pursuit only briefly.

Because League ruler Voronin desires Sass’s pint-sized but powerful digital sentient, her robotic pet mink. The Russian controls his own weapon AI, a relic of dire wars.

And he offers rich bounties to tempt Melkor’s gangster relatives.

Yet Melkor believes in Sass. His dying world can be revived using Colony Corps tech. He connects her with renegade gene splicers striving to restore habitat.

Meanwhile her ride off-planet is stymied by sabotage on Mars.

Can Sass get the goods and escape Earth to the Corps? Or trapped between AIs and League factions, might one of her own companions betray her?

Can Ben tame the monster AI?

Evacuating the planet Denali brings Ben Acosta to his knees. Thrive Spaceways is bankrupt. His marriage is on the rocks. And his homeworld Mahina is in chaos from the deluge of offworld refugees. Pushy arrogant refugees.

He’s disgraced. Fair enough — he blames himself.

But another 40,000 will die on Denali if he can’t turn this around.

Ben hatches a plan. The AI Loki is like a genie who grants wishes. A hostile, insane, ugly genie, with a track record for enslaving humans and building starships with asteroid-slicing guns.

If he can harness Loki, Spaceways can still save Denali.

Instead he’s trapped inside an airless rock with Remi. Can they survive?
