Today is publication day for IN QUAKING HILLS, the sequel to UNDER FALLING SKIES and the second in the TRAVELS OF SCOUT SHANNON series. (I just finished up book 3 and have a sense of what book 4 will be, with a strong inkling there will be a book 5). It’s out in print and eBook pretty much everywhere. Here is the back of book copy:
After spending the last four days of her life hiding out from a deadly solar particle storm in an underground bunker, trapped with six treacherous women and a trio of girl assassins, Scout Shannon just wants to find the man who conned her mentor and leave her home world for good.
Alas, the long-threatened war draws nearer and Scout finds herself caught in the middle, surrounded by rebels and bandits. Worse, she carries a pocketful of dangerous secrets with no one to entrust them to.
And the hills keep shaking. Something lurks deep underground. Something massive. Something world-destroying. Scout leaves in three days. If she lives that long.
“In Quaking Hills”, the sequel to “Under Falling Skies” and the second book in “The Travels of Scout Shannon” series, a young adult science fiction novel for fans of plucky heroines, complicated boys, and loyal dog sidekicks.
It was awesome to wake up to a bunch of sales already from people who clicked preordered their copy – thanks so much you guys! And the end of this book has a sample from the opening of book 3, which will be about in mid March. These books are so fun to write, and it’s always a kick to see my dogs on the cover.
