Yes, I'm already hard at work on another book in that world, which I'm planning as the first book in a "spin-off" series. I'm a pretty slow writer, so I'm not sure exactly when it will available, but I'm hoping sometime around the end of this year. I'll be posting updates, a cover reveal, etc. as I get closer to finishing it! :)(less)

The Girl From Mars by Brenda Hiatt
"It's a clean YA series that captures you by a great story! It starts out so different from what I was expecting from this series. It also fixes a situation with a character I've been wanting to see happy! Good sci-fi read!"
The Girl From Mars by Brenda Hiatt
"I absolutely loved The Girl From Mars. I thought it was perfect to show a different viewpoint during M’s start as Sovereign, and the overlap helped me remember some of what happened in Starfall because it has been a while since I read that one. Ki..." Read more of this review »
The Girl From Mars by Brenda Hiatt
"I love this series but this one wasn't my favorite. Definitely improved as I got into the story. It was a little confusing to start back before the last book ended and re-read the events, even though they were from a different perspective. The beg..." Read more of this review »

“Books were so much easier to relate to than people.”
Brenda Hiatt, Starstruck

“Kindness isn't so difficult, when the object is worthy.”
Brenda Hiatt, Rogue's Honor

“It's not like she actually said I couldn't go. She just lectured me a little—about what boys like you expect from girls like me." I slanted a teasing glance up at him. What had gotten into me, that I was suddenly so comfortable, so brave, around him? He laughed out loud, a delicious sound. "Boys like me? You can tell her I don't expect anything at all. Though—" He went suddenly serious— "I may hope, a little." I discovered I wasn't quite brave enough to ask what he hoped, though the intensity in his eyes gave me a clue. My heart started beating faster.”
Brenda Hiatt, Starstruck
