Happy Book Birthday to Aubrie Dionne!

Aubrie Dionne has been one of my dear friends and critique partners since I started writing in 2009. Her book three (technically fourth) of the New Dawn series, Haven 6, releases today!

Edit: Aubrie told me Entangled Publishing is changing distributors, so it might take a little longer for people to buy it, but please add it to Goodreads and consider pre-ordering a print copy.

A product of an illegal pairing, Eridani is the only woman without a lifemate aboard the colonization ship, the Heritage, and she is determined her less than perfect DNA will not get in the way of finding love. As the ship nears it's final destination of Haven 6 after five hundred years of travel, images of the surface show evidence of intelligent life on a planet that's supposed to be uninhabited. Commander Grier assigns Eri to the exploratory team to spy on the alien society and return with information on how to defeat them.

When Eri's team lands, tribes of humans attack and Eri is saved by Striver, the descendant of a colonist and a pirate from Old Earth's colonization efforts in other parts of the galaxy. Striver helps Eri rescue her team and they are drawn to each other despite their different allegiances. While Striver battles with trusting Eri, Eri must decide whether to warn him and his people about the commander's intentions, or follow orders and complete her mission.

Aubrie grew up watching the original Star Wars movies over and over again until she could recite and reenact every single scene in her backyard. She also loved The Goonies, Star Trek the Next Generation-favorite character was Data by far-, and Indiana Jones. But, her all time favorite movie was The Last Unicorn. She still wonders why the unicorn decided to change back to a unicorn in the end.

Aubrie wrote in her junior high yearbook that she wanted to be "A concert flutist" when she grew up. When she made that happen, she decided one career was not enough and embarked as a fantasy, sci fi author. Two careers seems to keep her busy. For now.

Ooh a Star Wars geek. Can you name the designation of the storm trooper that was not at his post in the original Star Wars movie (A New Hope)?

And congratulations.

Happy Birthday, Aubrie! Congrats on your fourth release. That's awesome. I played flute thru JH, but was nowhere near concert level. Awesome.
