Soon my news posts, etc. are going to be all Brimstone, all the time, but not quite yet. :)
A little IMP news first. For those of you not familiar, IMP (Interplanetary Multispecies Pact) is a shared universe I developed and share with Freddy MacKay. The basic premise:
Yervath space - where an ancient race of dual-strand genetic beings set up IMP for their own devices. Hey. They had the tech. Everyone else had to go along.
While IMP is aware of Earth, Sol system is considered a primitive backwater. They keep an eye on us, but most of the time, we're a footnote beyond the edges of civilized space.
The IMP Universe had three stories so far, and while A Christmas Cactus for the General has been available, the other two have not for some time. Until now. All three titles have new covers and all three will soon be back out in the wild.
A Christmas Cactus for the General (available now in ebook, paperback should be up this week)
Exiled to Earth for perhaps the worst failure in Irasolan history, General Teer must assimilate or die. Earth is too warm, too wet, too foreign, but he does the best he can even though human males are loud, childish louts whom he can't imitate successfully.
When a grieving seaplane pilot strikes up a strange and uneasy friendship with him, he finds he may have been too quick to judge human males. They are strange to look at, but perhaps not as unbearable as he thought.
A Message from the Home Office (release date August 25)
Being an OIL (Onsite Inter-species Liaison) for the Interplanetary Multispecies Pact has never been an easy job. In fact it's a crap job when stuck on a backwater nowhere planet like Earth.
But cobra Yervath Sissal Naganos manages. The demotion was swift and heavy-handed, but he'll climb back out of this hell eventually. Humans don't meet his social needs, so, yes, it's been lonely and he tells himself he likes the solitude. That is, until IMP sends him an irritating new assistant he never asked for. Now his peace is well and truly disturbed and his paranoid diplomatic reflexes have reawakened. The worst part is the kid didn't have to be so cute.
The Nut Job
by Freddy MacKay (coming this fall)
Captain Spencer's attempt to complete a simple nut harvest on Earth goes spectacularly wrong.
Last but not least, I have an ARC lottery running on my FB group for A Fine Mess: Brimstone 7. You do need to be a group member to enter.
