Hi, everyone. I’m delighted to be participating in the Blue Moon Blog Hop, organized by the wonderfully efficient Pippa Jay. The theme is BLUE, and that just happened to fit perfectly with three of my books. Why am I so enamored with BLUE, you ask? Well, let me explain.
Three definitions of BLUE:
– A color between green and indigo on the spectrum
– Melancholy, sad, or depressed
– A movie joke or story with sexual content
In my trio of BLUE books, Earth is ruled by the aristocratic Blues, led by the self appointed Dictator. Earth is their base, but the planet is slowly dying. Now, the Blues must extend and consolidate their power into the rest of the inhabited galaxy.
In the first book, Blue Galaxy, a young aristocratic woman, Sola de la Vega, is being sent to an arranged marriage with a Blue warlord on a colonized planet in the Outer Rim. The pilot of the ship that will carry her there, Javan Rhodes, former war hero turned alcoholic space flotsam, has the misfortune to fall in love with the woman, who turns out to be nothing like the demure young Blue she presents herself to be. There is melancholy and sadness, oh yes. And quite a bit of sexual content *grin*
The twist and turns of Blue Galaxy, all told from the perspective of Captain Rhodes, leads directly into the second book, Blue Nebula, where the adventures continue from the point of view of Sola de la Vega. Swashbuckling of various kinds occur, secrets are revealed, hearts are broken, and the very uncertain future of the galaxy becomes a battle ground. The wily old Dictator of Earth has set a series of events in play that Sola and Javan must overcome, not just for the future of their relationship, but for the very survival of Planet Earth.
Well, that’s what the power players are up to. Back on Earth, as the Blues start to flee the dying planet, the ordinary people must go to extreme lengths to afford their own evacuation. The story continues in Blue Yonder as factory worker and part time prostitute, Isabel Visconti, is on the brink of escape when her old friend, Daniel Mourneau, shows up to beg a dangerous favor, one that could lead to an unimaginably horrible future for her. But how can she abandon her dearest friend?
Well, that’s my Blue trio. You can enter to win a grand prize of books and giftcards via Rafflecopter. I’m also giving away three sets of my Blue trio to three randomly selected commenters on this blog. I’m in a three kind of mood *grin* The seven other authors in the hop have blue obsessions of their own. Hop on over to read the rest of the contributions to the Blue Moon Blog Hop. Have fun!
Your trio of books sound very good!
Great post, Diane. (Don’t enter me in the drawing since I already own these three great stories.) I enjoyed revisiting the Blue universe. 🙂
