A Closer Look: The Dangerous Type


Dangerous TypeWe were such fans of Loren Rhoads’ totally addictive military space opera assassin series that when we sat down to talk about how we wanted to release the three books of the In the Wake of Templars trilogy, we decided to try something a little different and release all three books in a six month span.

Since the release of book one, The Dangerous Type, earlier this month, Loren has been making the rounds across the internet. We’ve gathered all her guest posts below, so you can get yourself up to speed on this fast-paced assassin’s story just in time for book two in September.

There’s an excerpt for The Dangerous Type here.

Over at Sherry Peters’s website, Rhoads discusses why Luck Favors the Prepared and the importance of persistence.

There’s an author interview over at Shell’s Interviews.
