It’s a very cool thing when your job requires you to read some of your favorite books. That happens to me all the time, of course, but one of my favorite assignments of all is working on Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s Diving series. From the kickass main character of Boss to the vast mystery of the Fleet to the incredibly rich universe, these books are everything I love most about great fiction.

I was a fan of the Diving books before I took the helm of WMG, and now I get to be part of bringing them to all of her other fans. That is as incredibly cool as it sounds.

And so, tomorrow will be a very exciting day at the WMG offices, even if those offices are now in several different locations thanks to the pandemic. Because tomorrow marks the release of the latest Diving novel: Thieves!

Set at the same time as Searching for the Fleet, Thieves features Boss diving the Boneyard and making some very exciting discoveries. Here is the synopsis:

A race against time.

Weeks after Boss’ injury from the runabout dive, she continues the mission to salvage Fleet wrecks for the Lost Souls Corporation. But Boss feels like she lost something after that fateful dive.

Until something happens in the Boneyard to catch her attention. Something that sparks her interest with an intensity she thought she lost.

Now, Boss must assemble a team—her old team—to dive this new discovery.

But Boss worries that someone knows her plans. That the Boneyard might prove more sentient than she knows.

She feels the clock ticking—and she worries time will run out once and for all.

A thrilling new adventure, Thieves provides pulse-pounding new developments in Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s award-winning Diving series.

As for me, I need to get back to reading the next book in the series, The Chase. There’s a preview of the first few chapters at the back of Thieves. We don’t have a release date for The Chase yet, but we will later this spring. And once you read that preview, you’ll know why I’m spending my nights and weekends working until I finish it.

It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it <grin>.
