They need to add another “work” ahead of “eat,” because I’m so deep in the cave this week that I’ve barely left the house. Except for the gym, which I can’t miss if I’m to get strong enough for my next big trip. But more on that in later weeks.

I do have big SHIFTER PLANET news this week, however. This news is half of why I’m dwelling in the cave. SHIFTER PLANET: THE RETURN (yes, we have a title!) will release on October 14! I’m so happy! First, because I’m eager to share the story with all of you. And second, because this means I’ll have copies to sign at SHAMELESS 19 in Orlando. If you’re going to be at the conference, or if you’re coming to the SIGNING ONLY, PLEASE let me know you’re coming, so I can be sure to bring enough of whatever titles you want. You can email me at dbreynoldswriter@gmail.com or dbreynoldswriter@live.com, or you can respond to this post.

Now, for the exciting details…

(cover coming soon)

Rachel Fortier is a much sought-after expert when it comes to exotic planets—especially the deadly kind. So when she’s hired by Earth Fleet’s most respected scientist to join a mission to the tightly closed planet Harp, it’s a dream come true. Until she discovers their mission is to capture shifters and sell them to the Military.

Shifter Aidan Devlin is on patrol far from his clan when he sees a shuttlecraft landing where it definitely shouldn’t be. As the invaders emerge, he’s surprised to see a lone lovely woman, who doesn’t seem to belong. But when he’s captured and put in a cage, he has no one but her to help him escape.

Drawn together by a hunger they can’t resist, and desperate to discover who betrayed Harp, Aidan and Rachel first have to survive a deadly journey to the city. But once there, they find themselves confronted by a conspiracy that goes even deeper. Because Harp is harboring a traitor. And he’s willing to destroy their world—and everything in it—to get what he wants.


And with that, I’m back to work, galley-proofing SHIFTER PLANET:THE RETURN (last chance to find errors,) and then back once more to finish writing DRAGAN, who’s been very patient with all these stops and starts.
