Brave New Girls: Teaser Friday

Brave New Girls: Tales of Girls and Gadgets publishes June 2015 (and I'm part of it, yay!). It's a YA science fiction charity anthology in which all proceeds will be donated quarterly to a scholarship fund for girls through the Society of Women Engineers. Each Friday in the month of May, I'll be featuring teaser lines from Brave New Girls: Tales of Girls and Gadgets. 


Teen science aficionado Fi has made it her duty to protect the honeybees. Not only does she love the little creatures, but her society depends on them for their survival. Something sinister is astir, though, and powerful forces are behind it. With the help of her programmer friend and a surprising ally, Fi sets out to discover the truth and share it with the world.

by George Ebey

Helen's father hoped to find his fortune by sending a robotic rover, controlled from Earth, to mine Mars for precious ores. After the machine is attacked by the Marauders - ruthless rover pirates that steal the caches of others - her family stands on the brink of ruin. But Helen has never met a machine she couldn’t fix, even one that’s fifty million miles away. Though saving the rover - and her family - will take every trick she knows, she's more than ready for the challenge. And she's determined to teach the Marauders how to play fair - a lesson taught at the tip of a miner’s drill.

  7. Kate's promo pic confused me a bit because I thought the "catch" was the hive. Then the ending part didn't make sense. But her blurb is well done. George's book sounds great too. I'm wishing them both much success!
