REYET TRAPAuthor: Dee Garretson
Series: Torch World #2
Publication Date: April 3, 2018
No planet. No hope.
Quinn Neen and his friends have survived the uprising and the ruthless Fosaanian leader’s attempt to kill them, but the galaxy is still hurtling toward war. With just a few days before Quinn starts his mandatory military training, he plans to spend the time with Mira, the Fosaanian girl he’s in love with. When a mysterious message forces them on a journey to an isolated planet named Reyet, Quinn’s plans quickly change.
A coup on Reyet throws everything into chaos, leaving Quinn and Mira evading enemies they know, and some they don’t, including the planet itself. Now, time is running out for Earth, Fosaan, and Reyet, and there may be no place left in the galaxy that’s safe.

Series: Torch World #1
Publication Date: February 14, 2017
Summary:Earth scientists and their families stationed on the remote planet of Fosaan were promised a tropical vacation-like experience. But Fosaan, devastated from an apocalyptic event nearly three-hundred years ago, is full of lethal predators and dangerous terrain.
Earthers are forbidden to go beyond the safety zone of their settlement and must not engage the small population of reclusive Fosaanians, descendants of the survivors. Sixteen-year-old Quinn Neen plans to do both of those things.
When Quinn discovers a beautiful Fosaanian girl named Mira stealing food from his family’s living unit, he soon learns Earth’s government may not be telling the whole truth about Fosaan and the cause of the past disaster.
There are some who to restore the planet to its former glory by any means necessary. Quinn finds himself caught between his loyalty to his own people and what is right for Mira and her people.
Before he can decide what to do, the scientists are taken captive, stranding the young Earthers on Fosaan.
Quinn must go from renegade to leader and convince Mira to become an ally in a fight against an enemy whose very existence threatens their lives and the future of those both on Fosaan and at home.
Why You Love Your CoverI love looking at book covers and I have to admit it’s hard for me NOT to judge a book by its cover. Authors anxiously await the first view of their covers, worrying the cover artist won’t capture the right feel for the book. I was therefore ecstatic when I saw my covers. They are perfect for the stories.
Like most authors, I had another career before I become a full time writer. For several years I taught landscape design and also designed flower borders on the side. When you design with flowers, color is a big part of the process.
When I wanted to make a very bold garden, I often combined blue and orange flowers. In traditional color theory, these two colors together are complementary, meaning they are opposite each other on the color wheel, and create a striking contrast when used together. I was so pleased to see the colors used on both STATION FOSAAN and REYET TRAP.
I also love that both Quinn and Mira are pictured. While Quinn is the one telling the story, there wouldn’t be a story at all without Mira, and it’s the relationship between the two that drives some of their choices.
I give major kudos to the cover designer, because while the books are science fiction, they take place mostly on other planets, not in space. I love that the covers have a bit of an otherworldly feel, because they fit the stories perfectly. One of my goals in writing stories is to have readers want to visit the worlds I create, and these covers are a perfect complement to that goal.
