Now here’s Reesa:

Hi there, lovely readers! I’m Reesa Herberth, the author of In Discretion, and I’m really thrilled to be joining you here on Smart Girls Love Sci Fi today. I’d like to thank the team for having me here on the first day of my official blog tour.

I’m running a trivia contest throughout the tour, with a winner to be drawn from the entries on Friday, January 10, 2014. I’ll be giving away the winner’s choice of any e-book in my backlist, plus a reading gift pack featuring books and treats! The contest is open to U.S. and International entrants. In the event that a winner outside the U.S. is chosen, a gift certificate to Riptide Publishing or Amazon will be substituted for the physical prize.

To enter, email me the answers to the following trivia questions (answers to all questions can be found in In Discretion):

1. What is the name of Thanson Nez’s father?
2. Who is Tynna?
3. What item did Thanson steal from Kazra the last time they saw one another?

The team hit me with a Fast Five, and believe it or not, I had a hard time choosing on most of them!

Fast Five Questions:

1Star Wars or Star Trek?

Reesa said:  Old school Star Wars, Nu Trek.

2Coke, Pepsi or other?

Reesa said: Diet Pepsi for life!

3Salty or sweet?

Reesa said: Salty- I grew up thinking soy sauce was a comfort food.

4Monsters or Space Aliens?

Reesa said: Monsters for a cozy read, space aliens for an energetic one.

5Spaceballs or Galaxy Quest?

Reesa said:  Galaxy Quest, though Spaceballs has its moments. 

Thanks again for having me on the blog. I’ll be dropping by to answer any questions or comments throughout the day. The blurb for In Discretion is below, and you can read an excerpt and purchase the book here.

Charlee here again. Thanks for playing along, Ressa! What do you say readers? Anyone who thinks monsters are a comfort read is cool by me!

About In Discretion …


Tanson Nez thought his career as a Discretionary would take him to the stars, not strand him on a space station at the ass-end of the Empire. Tanks to his last client, he’s carrying a secret he can’t get rid of fast enough, but his oath to the guild means a swift, painful death if he shares it. Already desperate for help, he runs into yet more trouble: his ex, and an explosion that paralyzes the station moments after their uncomfortable reunion.

Kazra Ferdow, Station 43’s communications officer, is almost as blindsided by the return of his first love as he is by the sudden loss of power and life support. Te station is a floating graveyard in the making, and something is turning its inhabitants into savage killers. Fighting human monsters and damaged tech, Kazra and Tanson must put aside their past long enough to try to save everyone.

The more light they shine into dark corners, the more Tanson realizes how many people might die for the secrets locked in his head—and what he’s willing to sacrifice to make sure Kazra isn’t one of them.
