elizabethmccoy: Crowned woman, dubious expression. Text: Queen of Roses (Queen of Roses)
[personal profile] elizabethmccoy
Sarafina was content to be an accountant, insulated from the public as she kept the numbers behaving and played chess with her fellows. But when the First Daris Bank is bought out, her indenture is sold to a cruise ship and Sarafina is thrust into a job she was never meant for. Now she's dealing with a motley crew, drunkard captain, flirtatious first officer, fire-sale equipment, and worst of all . . . Passengers.

(Suitable for mid-teens and up. Queen of Roses is not in the same universe as the Kintarans.)

Currently available from:
Amazon, Amazon.AU, Amazon.CA, Amazon UK, Amazon.es, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.in, Amazon.it, Amazon Japan, and Amazon Brazil. (All in American English, of course; I don't have translations yet, alas.)

Barnes & Noble (Nook), and Nook UK.
Blio (Blio does not allow permanent book-URLs; search on title and author at their main site.)
Smashwords (Allows a 50% sample of this book!)
Sony ebooks

Ravens N'Pennies
iDreamBooks (no actual reviews as I enter this, but a percent rating that seems to like it?)

The first chapter may also be found at No Names, No Jackets, should the random number generator favor you. (Or go straight to its page.) Queen of Roses is filed as "SF."

This is the first full-length (100,000+ words) novel I ever wrote. (It's been edited since then, of course.) It is much fluffier than some of my later novels, though on a par with most of the Kintaran stories. Space opera universe, but the plot... not so much with the blasters. And Sarafina's expression on the cover? Priceless.

Just bought it!

I got it from Smashwords. I'll be reading it soon. I found you through both Sara Hoyts site and Dear Author. The "Herb" stories look interesting even if that particular reviewer only gave you a 'C', so I'll probably buy them sometime soon. One nice thing about ebooks is that they don't disappear from the shelf at the bookstore in a month or so.

Ms. McCoy, my review of Queen of Roses in Analog is now up at http://www.analogsf.com/2014_09/reflib.shtml

You may remember me from a reading at Arisia 2014.

I saw the review in Analog, and wondered whether the author was that Elizabeth McCoy. Evidently you are, so I'll be sure to get the book on Kindle.

Best Regards,
