G-1 can be pre-ordered!

Friends, fans, and fellow geeks,

I bring glad tidings! Kindle Scout has released my brand new book, G-1, to their sales website. This title is available for purchase on March 3, but you can order your copy right now if you don't want to fool around until next Tuesday. BUY NOW

This is so exciting, getting in on the ground floor of a whole new way of publishing! I'm very proud to be in the first 10 books released by Kindle Press, and I think you're going to love this story.

With my background in science, it was natural for me to write about a scientist who wants to save the world from itself. I set G-1 fifty years in the future, at a time when water rights are hotly contested and countries fight to get the next agridome in their boundaries so that there is enough food for their people.

Now water is missing. That's right. Missing. My geeky protagonist, Dr. Zeke Landry, knows that water cycles. It can't disappear, and he's determined to get to the bottom of this hoax. Except the answer isn't forthcoming and there's political pressure to endorse the missing water spin of current events. Zeke and his helper, a hyped up robot named Forman, kick open a hornet's nest of bad guys and are soon scrambling for their lives.

There's a reveal at the end, one that I won't go into detail about here (I want you to read the book!), but it sets the stage for what's to come in books 2 and 3, already written and hopefully soon to land in the publication hopper.

G-1 is in Kindle (mobi) format. I hope to bring it out in print a little later this spring.

Dear Readers, I hope you will enjoy this new direction as much as I do. You'll find the science isn't too heavy, and the characters are just as engaging as my Cleopatra Jones, Baxley Powell, and so many other fine protagonists. It's all about stopping the bad guys and saving the world!

So, click on over to check it out on Kindle. Or better yet, read the first chapter at my website: http://maggietoussaint.com/g-1/ and don't forget to check out my pen name's website at http://www.rigelcarson.com

Thanks for liking my books and for helping with nominations to get the notice of Kindle Scout. Let's continue to share this fine adventure.

Shipwrecks and Rough Waters

Rough Waters, my contemporary romantic suspense novel, came about because I wanted to write about people being knocked down by life. I wanted to see them triumph over adversity, but like any happy ending, they had to work for it.

Coupled with this not-just-surviving-but fighting-back mentality, I wanted to write about treasure. Where I live in coastal Georgia, and all up and down the Southeastern Seaboard, are tales and wrecks and dreams of the pirates that at one time infested our waters. Where there are pirates, there be gold!

Here's a shipwreck that gets uncovered periodically on nearby Cabretta

My hero, Rock, lost everything: his ailing mother, his business, his best friend, his physical wholeness, and his boat. Worse, when he was recovering from the accident, the treasure he'd recovered from the sea went missing. Trouble is the treasure belongs to his investor, who expects payment...yesterday.

And then there's pink-haired Jeanie. So brave after being abandoned with her two kids while her husband ran away with her cousin. So determined to pull herself up by her bootstraps. So sure she doesn't need anyone in her life. Until her business and home get ransacked and she's afraid for her children's sake. Everyone's telling her to run and hide, but she won't leave her fate in anyone else's hands. She can't.

Rough Waters was recently featured in the Southern Writers Valentine Catalog. I hope you'll click the link to take a peek!
