New in the merch shop--get your hands on some official Zenith Corp gear from On Borrowed Wings! Can't you see Greg or Jacob wearing this hoodie around the complex?
By the way, thank you so much for your patience while Blue Diver is being edited. I know it probably looks like I've gotten very distracted with all the new merchandise, but actually, I can't move forward on the manuscript until I get feedback from my editor. I'm going with a new editorial service this time and while I think they'll be a better fit for me, it's also taking a bit longer than previous editors. I'm chomping at the bit to finish this novel and release it, believe me. I have confidence that my editor will be done soon, and then if all goes well, Blue Diver should see release around the end of the year. Again, I appreciate everyone's understanding and patience.
(And once Blue Diver is out, I can start teasing my next novel...)

my sister's Etsy shop! These keychains feature the logo of Zenith Corporation from On Borrowed Wings, and your very own thunder stone like Cat's from Thunder Girl!*
If you're excited for Blue Diver, watch this space because we have some very cool merch for that novel coming soon!
*Thunder stone keychain does not actually reanimate fossils. But you can pretend and I won't judge you.

And finally, to complete the set, here's a concept doodle of Renny's PT! The CosmoWorks SLO-64 Slipher is a high-end model given to Renny in recognition of her excellent service in the galactic police and her ace Diving skills. Piloting the Slipher, Renny has become a force to be reckoned with and the bane of space criminals everywhere. With its custom red paint job, Renny's Slipher is unmistakable on the field of battle and sends a very clear message to her foes: prepare for a smackdown.
Renny believes that the best defense is a good offense, and the Slipher is a power-oriented PT which nonetheless possesses a great deal of fortitude, allowing Renny to afford to take a few hits in the process of mowing down her enemies. The tradeoff for this is below-average speed and mobility, but when you're not trying very hard to dodge attacks in the first place, those things don't really matter, do they?
The Slipher is armed with both a sword for melee combat and a laser rifle for ranged attacks, making it versatile in any situation. Such a high-end unit is the envy of many of her fellow officers, but Renny definitely has the skills to deserve and handle this potent weapon.
Thanks for your patience while Blue Diver is being edited! I'm really hoping to get it out by the end of the year. It'll be fun, just you wait!
