  1. Yey! *goes to preorder*

  2. Anna,
    We are happy to have your story lead the way in Far Orbit Apogee. It's got a strong and likable female protagonist, aliens, and lots of action. Oh, did I mention it's also got an engaging plot, a reprehensible villain, and slime. What's not to like? Well done!

  3. Thank you, Bascomb! I had fun writing it:)


Hello, stranger. What's on your mind?
