I’m a marketing mess. You’ll hear a lot about how we have to do it, we have to be on it, when you self-publish you’re all there is, blah, blah, blah…
Unfortunately for the way you’re SUPPOSED to do it, I’m not a consistent sort of person. I can’t seem to follow a plan to save my life. All I can do is the best I can do, and not whine about the results.
All that is to say that I probably I should wait, but I’m not gonna.
Check it out.
Queen’s Man by KD Sarge
Though he works security for a major “tribe,” Joss Ravid will tell anyone that he doesn’t care if the ruling families of Kari’s Star kill each other off. The Galactic-imposed Interdiction may keep Kari natives stuck on their war-torn world, but Joss has connections. He can leave whenever he wants.
He’ll also tell anyone he doesn’t care about girls, but that doesn’t stop him from rescuing 12-year-old Paige, newly arrived and newly orphaned by tribe violence.
Tops on the “don’t care” list, though, is Zeke Cayden, heir to powerful Tribe Cayden. Never mind that he and Joss were lovers; that’s long gone. Saving Zeke’s life when the shooting starts is strictly business. Some tribes don’t want peace, and killing a Galactic citizen like Paige—or controlling Cayden through the heir—would serve them well.
So Joss is on the run, risking his life, his pretty face, and his precious liberty to keep Paige and Zeke alive and the peace plan that can lift the Interdiction on track. Why? Because how often does a guy get to piss off half a planet?
When Paige is taken, though, the lives of Paige and Zeke, the leadership of Cayden and the future of Kari’s Star all ride on the wrinkled shoulders of Joss’ work suit and he has to decide—can he save himself at the cost of everyone he doesn’t care about?

The book’s description will most likely change. Did I mention I’m not a consistent sort of person?
