Breaking News: Lisa Paitz Spindler Sells SFR to Carina Press!

Lisa Paitz Spindler, a.k.a. Danger Gal, has been a longtime fan and advocate for science fiction romance, which makes the news of her SFR novella sale to Carina Press all the more wonderful. As long as I’ve known her, she’s been tirelessly blogging about science fiction romance at her own site. She’s also engaged other readers about the subgenre in a variety of online forums.

Now she can add debut author to her already impressive credentials. According to her announcement post, PHASE SHIFT (working title) will be a Carina Press Spring 2011 release. Here’s the story blurb:

Starship Captain LARA SOTO left love-of-her-life Commodore MICHIO “MITCH” YOSHIDA eleven years ago when the Star Union forced all of her kind into mandatory military service — and he didn’t take her side. Lara’s kind are Chimerans, those born with a parent from each of the known parallel dimensions: Terra and Creed. When Terra’s S.U.S. Interlace goes missing with Lara’s brother on board, she must put aside the pain of betrayal and team up with Mitch to find him.

And did I mention the story features space pirates? Well, you all know how I feel about them.
