Seventh Star Press is proud to announce that R.J. Sullivan's second tale in his Red Lotus series, Red Lotus: Innocence Lost, is now available in eBook format!
Edited by Rodney Carlstrom and featuring new cover art by John F. Allen, the new novella is a followup to the well-received Fate of the Red Lotus, which debuted RJ's science fiction series exploring the journeys of the International Mining Ship named the Red Lotus.
The eBook is now available for just $1.99 for Kindle and Nook at the following links:
The Kobo, iBookstore, and other versions will be available very shortly.
Commander Sayuri Arai has what she's always wanted...at least, that's what she keeps telling herself to fend off despair. In just the last few days, she's purchased the antiquated Independent Mining Ship Red Lotus, invested in major repairs and upgrades, and taken on the role of its co-commander alongside trusted right hand man Dravin Sow.
Now, Sayuri finds herself at wit's end. Her veteran crew of "Spacers" seems to take pleasure in citing her inexperience and odd "Grounder" ways while they correct, contradict, or dismiss her every order. Even Sayuri's attempts to socialize with her new subordinates are rebuffed. But when space pirates attack and board the vessel, Sayuri and her crew must learn to work together if they're going to survive.
Red Lotus: Innocence Lost is the second of a series of science fiction novelettes that began with Fate of the Red Lotus--re-igniting a classic sense of wonder for today's readers.
