Hello everyone! My name is Lisa Orchard and I'm the Amazon bestselling author of the Upper Middle grade/Lower Young Adult Mystery/Thriller Series "The Super Spies."

I've just completed a Coming of Age Young Adult Novel that I'm very excited about. My publisher wants to  split it into three books. The first one is titled, "Gideon Lee" and will be published in November. The second one is untitled as of now but will be released in December and the third in January. I'm very excited about this series. I'm currently working on the fourth book. :) Here's the current blurb, of course, this could change once the book is divided into three. :)

Seventeen-year-old Lark Singer only has two things going for her, her music and her best friend Bean. While entering a competition she hopes will launch their music career, Lark searches for answers that will make her whole. Her quest reveals some secrets that those around her would rather keep hidden. As the competition looms closer, Lark discovers not only who she really is, but also who her real friends are. Then tragedy threatens everything she has worked so hard to accomplish. Can she pick up the pieces and move on?

I'd love to hear your thoughts on it, if you'd care to comment. :)

The Girl They Sold to the Moon is finally here in e-book format on Amazon for $2.99! Don’t miss this award-winner—it’s fast and furious—a dark and edgy Burlesque in space.

Amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/Girl-They-Sold-Moon-ebook/dp/B00LDFLR0S/ref=s...

Eighteen-year-old Tilly Breedlove's father has just pawned his daughter for a huge cash advance to escape a penitentiary sentence. She’s whisked away to Luna-the Tranquility Harbor Mining Company, 240,000 miles from home. Family Trade and Loan, an unscrupulous company, is more than willing to take her on and exploit her talent. Forced to be an exotic dancer, she performs risqué shows for the filthy, but filthy rich ore miners--a far cry from her classical and modern dance training. If she isn't resisting obscene advances from bearded "Prairie Dogs", she's fending off jealous head-liner acts who view her as a threat to their status-and when those jealous showgirls say "break a leg", they aim to cause it.

The only reprieve she finds in this shop of horrors is a few close ward friends, a sympathetic dance coach/choreographer, and Buddy Gunner Bell, who just might become the love of her life. It's just enough to stem her psychological meltdown. A tragedy on the Moon base lands Tilly back on Earth. Tilly plots a daring escape plan with her friends. Their plan requires split-second timing and a daring dash. If she can just get past the corporation's airtight security.

The first book in the Melody of the Gears saga, an epic story telling the long and sordid history of the world of Giliath. His Brother's Keeper is the culmination of ten years of hard work which have amounted in a series of seven books, a full working language with its own alphabet spoken by the tribe of the ancient Nendeeni, and a myriad of potential spin off ideas. This story completely breaks through genre lines and it could fall anywhere in the categories of Young Adult, LGBT, Fantasy, Sci-fi, Steampunk, or Supernatural.

The Melody of the Gears: His Brother's Keeper

I'm currently looking for interviewers, blog spotlights, and most importantly reviewers! I'm more than happy to share the PDF version of the book with anyone who would like to do a review or spotlight, and could do the same for the paperback version (though it will take me more time to procure and send, obviously.)

Some background on the book and a synopsis:

I'm twenty-five years old and have been working on developing the world and characters within this story for over ten years. The world of The Melody of the Gears has become a labor of love for me, a story that is about representation for minorities of all walks of life, and an interesting world where the prejudices that we're familiar with don't exist-- there aren't even words for them! My influences include many Young Adult authors but I specifically remember being inspired by Garth Nix, K.A. Applegate (especially her Everworld series!), and Cassandra Clare, more recently. 

So far, I have seven books fully outlined and planned in the series, as well as a guide to speaking the fully functional language of the Nendeeni that I created to add depth to the world's history. 

I set out to write heroes for the LGBT+ community, so that queer people could find themselves in these books as the hero; not as simple tragedy porn. 

Synopsis: Paragon City: The last bastion of humanity on a dying planet. Within its desert embrace unfold the stories of many people: 
 
The workers at a famed brothel, the fate of a queen on the run, ladies who will not be used as tools any longer, A doll with a human heart, and a strange young man who can’t remember anything but his name. 
 
With his arrival in the unchanging city, everything is about to change.  
 
Leo is the golden boy at Club Wisp: a famed brothel and secret base of operations for the Iron Mutiny. As the people’s resistance against a tyrannical monarchy and their demon allies as well as manning Paragon City’s entertainment industry, the Iron Mutiny has their hands full. 
 
Leo’s fate— and that of the endless war they’re fighting— changes forever when a beautiful amnesiac forces him into a magical Contract and out of his comfort zone.  
 
The fabric of their reality begins to unravel. Can the Iron Mutiny survive the biggest change of all?

[Note: There is mention of many adult themes in this story, but this is NOT erotica. ]

I just reviewed the amazing The Lives of Others by Neel Muhkerjee! It's a sweeping family saga the way you can only find them in India! I definitely recommend it to everyone!
