Kee is my favorite chaotic rainbow hacker, and Varro is her perfect foil. 💕 Plus, now is an excellent time to catch up with the story, since the third book, Capture the Sun, comes out in June!

Now I’m off to pronounce all of the made-up words I used in Capture the Sun for the audiobook narrator. Eeeee!

Eclipse the Moon Sale & So Many Cookies

The ebook of Eclipse the Moon is on sale for $4.99 on Amazon only, for a limited time. I don’t know how long the sale will last or why it’s only Amazon, but if you’ve been waiting for a sale and you have a Kindle, now’s your chance!

Later today I’m having a happy hour with friends from my former company, so yesterday I spent the day baking because we always do a cookie exchange. After a two-year hiatus, I forgot how much work it is.

And I forgot all the tricks I’d learned but didn’t put into the recipe. 🙈

I cut my millionaire’s shortbread while the chocolate was a little too soft and it’s not very pretty, but at least the kiss cookies turned out nice. Behold, one of two wire racks I filled up:

Several dozen peanut butter kiss cookies on a wire rack

I use the America’s Test Kitchen recipe for both, but I think I might look for another millionaire’s shortbread recipe. They’re super good, but also super crumbly, so I think maybe the shortbread base needs updating. And we’re not going to talk about how many sticks of butter I used, lol.

Do you bake holiday treats? What are your faves?

Eclipse the Moon Spoiler Discussion

If you’ve already read Eclipse the Moon and want to discuss it, this post is for you! Spoilers ARE allowed, so if you haven’t read it yet, you may want to hold off on scrolling down.

You’re welcome to ask me questions, and I’ll do my best to answer. It feels like I wrote this book an age ago (or maybe I just aged a lot this year 😂), but I’m still pretty sure I remember what I wrote… maybe. ;)

For real, though, I love Kee and Varro, and I hope you loved them, too!

Last chance to turn back before spoiler town.


Spoilers ahead.

Okay, everyone who is left, have at it! 🎉 And thank you all so much for your support! 💕

Eclipse the Moon cover, featuring a man and woman in silhouette in front of a purple background with an alien planet.

Acclaimed author Jessie Mihalik returns with an exciting new novel about a rainbow-haired female bounty hunter tasked with preventing an interstellar war.

Kee Ildez has been many things: hacker, soldier, bounty hunter. She never expected to be a hero, but when a shadowy group of traitors starts trying to goad the galaxy’s two superpowers into instigating an interstellar war, Kee throws herself into the search to find out who is responsible—and stop them.

Digging up hidden information is her job, so hunting traitors should be a piece of cake, but the primary suspect spent years in the military, and someone powerful is still covering his tracks. Disrupting their plans will require the help of her entire team, including Varro Runkow, a Valovian weapons expert who makes her pulse race.

Quiet, grumpy, and incredibly handsome, Varro watches her with hot eyes but ignores all of her flirting, so Kee silently vows to keep her feelings strictly platonic. But that vow will be put to the test when she and Varro are forced to leave the safety of their ship and venture into enemy territory alone.

Cut off from the rest of their team, they must figure out how to work together—and fast—because a single misstep will cost thousands of lives.

Now that I’ve gotten the server all fixed up, I’ve opened up a Scrivener file and started poking at an idea I had last fall. When I originally wrote it, it was fantasy, but I’ve recently thought I could shift it to sci-fi, so it could go either way.

I still adore the 5k I wrote last year, so I’ll probably keep working on it for a bit to see if I can develop it into something marketable. Book three of Starlight’s Shadow ended well (eventually), but it was a slog to get there, so I’m enjoying this time where I’m not under a contracted deadline to have some fun. There are a lot of things I probably should be writing, but a new shiny story is always a little magical.

This story, if it happens, will be very loosely based on Beauty and the Beast, which means it’ll probably end up nothing like the original because I never quite know where my stories are going to take me. Hunt the Stars was pitched as like The Mandalorian, and yeah, maybe if you squint, but mostly it went its own way.

But for now, I’m taking a long weekend because Mr. M is off today. Happy Fourth of July!
