Binary cover copy!

I’ve had a slightly frenetic, but altogether fruitful and fabulous day today, working on the promotional copy for Binary with my editor and publisher, Jo Fletcher. As happened a year ago when we went through the same process for Gemsigns, there were head-desking decisions to be made about what storylines and characters to mention, what hints to drop, and what to leave unheralded for the reader to discover. It’s not a simple thing when you persist (as I seem to do) in creating complicated interweaving plots populated by a large and stroppy cast.  Binary is no less complex in terms of story and characters, but this time the process was easier; I’d like to think I’m better at it now, but the truth is that Jo did most of the work. Here’s the result.

When confiscated genestock is stolen out of secure government quarantine, DI Sharon Varsi finds herself on the biggest case of her career … chasing down a clever thief, a mysterious hacker, and the threat of new, black market gemtech.

Zavcka Klist, ruthless industrial enforcer, has reinvented herself. Now the head of Bel’Natur, she wants gem celebrity Aryel Morningstar’s blessing for the company’s revival of infotech – the science that spawned the Syndrome, nearly destroyed mankind, and led to the creation of the gems. With illness in her own family that only a gemtech can cure, Aryel’s in no position to refuse.

As the infotech programme inches towards a breakthrough, Sharon’s investigations lead ever closer to the dark heart of Bel’Natur, the secrets of Aryel Morningstar’s past … and what Zavcka Klist is really after.

    I love stories.
    My new novel, Sacred, is all about them. Publication info will be posted as soon as I have it. In the meantime check out Gemsigns, Binary and Regeneration, available wherever good books are sold.
