Look What’s Up for Preorder!

To See the Sun is perhaps the most romantic story I’ve ever written, which is probably why I had to set in on a planet with little to no atmosphere between the surface and the burning sun, and deep crevasses full of poisonous mists. I put the people in the crevasses too, in a limited green zone. It’s paradise—not. But for Abraham Bauer, it’s a chance to live his dream. He’s one of a handful of colonists dedicated to the effort of terraforming the harsh environment of Alkirak, and though he is content to fill his days with farming, tinkering, and writing bad poetry, he’d really like someone to share it all with.

Enter Gael Sonnen. He’s never seen the sun shining over the oceanic planet of Zhemosen because he lives in the undercity, a level below decency, and several levels below a normal and placid life. His ticket out is a companion contract that will take him to the far edge of the galaxy as a mail-order husband to a lonely colonist.

That’s just where the story begins. ❤

With this book I’ve taken one of my favourite tropes—mail-order spouse—and wrapped it in a story of love, redemption, and bravery. I wanted to explore the idea of two strangers getting to know each other and how a relationship could arise from there. And then, because I’m evil, I tossed in complications, not all of which have to do with the harsh environment of Alkirak.

I loved writing this book and it’s one of the few I didn’t hate by the end of the edit phase. Waiting until August to share it with you is going to be hard!

To See the Sun is now available for preorder at Riptide Publishing. You can also add it on Goodreads!
