I went ahead and popped The Weirld into their Summer/Winter sale, so for the month of July it will be free there (whoooooo)! Since I don't have a sequel to sell, it's not, like, sensible marketing or anything, but I felt like, Why not?

Trang (sample chapter) (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: "Trang is a clever return to the social sci-fi of yesteryear."—The New Podler Review of Books. Award-winning writer Mary Sisson brings you the tale of Philippe Trang, the first human diplomat assigned to a mysterious alien station. Haunted by a recent mission that went very wrong, Trang realizes that not everyone on Earth would like his mission to succeed—and the aliens have some nefarious agendas of their own. As he tries desperately to keep everyone from killing each other (not to mention him), strange forces threaten to destroy his very mind! If you like character-driven stories that feature a blend of drama, tragedy, comedy, and action—such as the works of Joss Whedon or Charles Stross’ Laundry Files novels—and you don't mind some really bad language, read Trang today! (The full novel is 107,900 words long.)
