If you’re wondering how and where to buy my books, or for that matter what I’ve written, help is here.

Below, in order are links to buy my books and links to samples, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Historical Mystery, cozies and historical.  Browse on down!

I’ve written a little of everything including Space Opera –

I also write Fantasy.

For instance, there’s my Shifters Series for Baen.  If a lady panther and a gentleman dragon love each other very very much and decide to run a night together, what you have is:

This is an omnibus of the first two books. It’s on pre-order

But you can buy the first two books by themselves.  Start with:

Or if you prefer, you can read a sample here.

It’s followed by:

That one is not free on Amazon (though it is reasonably priced!) If you want to read a sample go here.

And of course the latest one in the series:

This might be my favorite cover ever. The panorama is actually Lakeside Park in Denver, where we used to take the kids when they were little.

I also write Historical Fantasy

In fact, historical fantasy were the very first books I published, with Berkley Ace.  The rights have now reverted, and they’re being brought out by Goldport Press.  They’re only available in ebooks right now, but GP is working on bringing them out in paper!

In other historical fantasy, there are The Magical British Empire books, which were published by Bantam:

Heart of Light

Soul of Fire

Heart and Soul

Those will be brought out by Goldport Press in the near future.  I’ve asked them permission to change them, so we can put out an author’s edition, since those books were heavily edited and also were written when the author was deep in the political closet.  It’s entirely possible that there is no safe way to write a fantasy about British colonies in the 19th century without being called either racist or hater of the West.  I am neither and I’m cleaning the series up the best I can.  For the rest, there will be afterwords!

As side steps to those books (whose multi-universe “world” will be called Magical Worlds, Goldport Press is waiting on my final edits to Witchfinder before releasing it.

I also write Historical Mysteries!

I’m very much hoping to bring out — soon — The Musketeer’s Inheritance (formerly published as A Death In Gascony) and The Musketeer’s Servant (formerly Dying by the Sword.)  After that, the brand new, never before issued The Musketeer’s confessor.  Unfortunately the copyeditor at Goldport press has been ill which is delaying everything!

I Also Write Historical Fiction

The short and extremely interesting life of Kathryn Howard, fifth wife of Henry VIII

And I’m very much afraid  I also write other mysteries

These are furniture refinishing mysteries and — I’m very afraid — lighter than air, but funny.  Click on cover to buy at Amazon.

  1. Really hope you will write more in the Daring Finds Mysteries series. Really enjoy the first two.

    • Hi. I’ve written a third and delivered it about a year ago. I’m told it will come out in October. After that, I’ll continue the series as soon as it’s out of contract. Meanwhile in a month or two, I’ll be writing Orphan Kitten mysteries, set in the same town (until contract is resolved.) Family moves a door down from Dyce. :)

  2. Yay, I’m so glad to hear there’s going to be a 3rd book in Daring Finds Mysteries series…I can’t wait to read it!

  3. Yes, having read some of your current work as well as the 15 year old short’s, at least to us uncultured peeps who buy stuff, you’re better now.

  4. So what about eBook editions? I knew of Darkship Thieves and would read that at a good price, but am really interested in Dipped, Stripped and Dead. However due to unpredictable travel in my job I tend nowadays to only read books on my Kindle.

    Reading what you say about publishing (sounds as bad as the record industry – my wife is a manager in the music business) I realise you might not have much say, but any news?

    • Darkship Thieves is available in ebook format I think at a decent price at baen.com Look under webscriptions.

      Dipped, Stripped and Dead and French Polished Murder and soon to be A Fatal Stain are available as ebooks, but through the publisher. if you search Amazon you shall find them.

  5. Actually there are more if I put your name in instead of the title, but stil not Dipped, Stripped

  6. Read both Thieves and Renegades this week. Great way to kill the time while pumping thick goo. I loved them both.

    • pumping thick goo????? You know you have to explain this, right?

      • Hehehe.
        That always seems to get folks’ attention.
        I blend chemicals used for firefighting foam, epoxies, inks, and other things. The batch I was working on is used to stabilize fire fighting foams used on polar(alcohol types) fueled fires. After the hurricane a tank farm in Mississippi had some of the floating roofs collapse and they foam the areas to prevent vapor, and there was that refinery fire in Venezuela as well that ate much of the polar foams in North America.
        This particular batch wasn’t as thick as it can get. There is a variance in the two main ingredients and it finished ranges from maple syrup at room temp to molasses in January. It is a long chain floropolymer molecule that I modify a few of the tails some with a small exothermic reaction. Nothing serious like my old product that would get to 145f when I was doing its reactions … fun stuff when it’s 100 already in the warehouse.
        I use a rather loud gear pump to move it and each tote takes quite a bit of time to pump in/out. I make about 18,000+ pounds of it at a shot.

        I have been reading your posts here for some time and actually hadn’t read any of your works at Baen. I finished off the latest Grantville Gazette a few days before and during lunch at work was thinking of rereading something at Joe Buckley’s site but recalled you and started Thieves during lunch Monday, read it on my phone, at lunch at my work pc and home and you sucked me into buying the eARC for Renegades (~_^).
        I laughed when you red shirted Ringo. Oddly I heard Doc Taylor’s imitation of Ringo for the voice in my head.

  7. one way or another you kilt ‘im

  8. I recently finished listening to Darkship Thieves. A great story and the reading was perfect for the characters.

    Please tell me Darkship Renegades will be available in audio. I will buy it on release day, especially if Kym Dakin is the reader.

  9. Well, I sent a request to Audible, if it does any good.

  10. Not sure how I found your twitter feed – but I’m glad I did. You have a new fan (having grown up on Heinlein et-al). After DST I’ll be buying everything you write. Thank you Sarah.

    Mark

  11. :) It would seem that I’m ahead of you then – I bought DSR for my kindle and finished it earlier this week.

  12. I just finished Darkship Renegades and really enjoyed the heck out of it. I also want to commend you on what may be the best red shirting ever 8-)
    I’ll make a deal with you, you keep writing them and I’ll keep buying and reading them.

  13. I just finished listening to the audiobook for Darkship Renegades. Your writing style is perfect for alaoud reading, especially with a talented reader like Kymberly Dakin, who has been the reader for both Darkship books.

    Both stories are complete in themselves, but I seem to detect an opening left for a third (Darkship Revolutionaries?) in there.

    Did you warn your redshirts in advance?

    • Of course I warned my redshirts in advance (some of them are there because they donated to a charity in order to be there.) Others are friends. :)

      Thank you. I didn’t know there was an Audio of Renegades, already. You want to keep an eye out for A Few Good Men, the first book of the Earth Revolution. I’m waffling on the title for the next Darkship mostly because the perfect one is Darkship Return, but if I call it that my publisher will flay me. ( Books with Return in the title, apparently, get returned. Who knew?)

      • Darkship Return would mean there would be two books matching the acronym DSR, so something that doesn’t start with R would make it easier to talk about the series in blog posts. Maybe Darkship Homecoming?

    What, you don’ know how to use a thesaurus?

  15. Sarah,

    I just finished Darkship Thieves. I really enjoyed it and quickly downloaded Darkship Renegades, A few Good Men and Ganymede. I’m hooked.

  16. Olá;

    sou Portuguesa. Já escreveu algum livro em Português? (Publicado?)

    Ou escreveu desde sempre em Inglês? (Pergunto por curiosidade.)

    • Escrevi muito em Portugues mas nada publicado. Vim para os estados unidos quando me casei aos 22 anos. So aprendi Ingles aos 14 anos, por isso toda a minha “juvenalia” e em Portugues… se ainda existe. Algures, na garagem da minha mae perto do Porto. ;)

  17. Obrigada por responder! Fiquei tão espantada por encontrar uma Portuguesa a escrever em Inglês! E com sucesso! Tive de perguntar :)

    Um abraço.

  18. Mrs. Hoyt ,
    I’m a new reader of your books. Started with the Darkship books from BAEN and moved to the shifter series. You have a new fan! My first love is science fiction followed closely by fantasy and I really got into the shifter series. I liked the way the 2nd book ends with the main characters finally seeming to become comfortable with their lot in life. Since I am a new fan, it may be that you’ve already discussed it, but do you have any near future plans to expand on the shifter series? You have a lot of other work published that will keep me busy, but I would love a new entry in that series. I also enjoyed reading your blog on this site. You seem to have a lot of projects up and running currently. Keep up the great work.

    From a new fan,
    Aaron

  19. Paul (Drak Bibliophile) Howard

    Aaron, the next Shifter’s Novel comes out in July. It’s titled _Noah’s Boy_.

    • Paul – thank you for the information regarding the next shifter book. I am now happily awaiting it’s arrival! Have a great day.
      - Aaron

  20. Noah’s Boy is available for pre-order at Amazon. Pre-ordering a book is beneficial to author and publisher for reasons I have forgotten.

  21. Sarah,

    I just finished Darkship Thieves, and am now into Renegades. Thoroughly enjoyed the first, and am already seeing the maturing of your writing style with Renegades. For whatever reason, I like to watch a “new” writer develop his or her voice and deepen in sophistication and style. Maybe I’m just a snobbish editor at heart! ;-)

    I am curious about the genesis of the Darkship universe, and Thena in particular. Did she start as a character riff on Heinlein’s stories, like I Will Fear No Evil, or Time Enough For Love? Or did Athena appear fully-grown in your mind one day? She’s a particularly engaging character, by the way. She may be superhuman in some ways, but she also has all of our (sometimes magnified!) fragilities, which makes her quite sexy!

    Hope you keep the series going. There’s clearly a lot of room for several different plot lines and character streams. In the meantime, when I finish Renegades, I’ll dive into some of your other work.
