Michelle Moore & Reesa Herberth on Peripheral People ~ Blog Tour, Interview, Local Giveaway

Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank Michelle Moore & Reesa Herberth for stopping by today.


Title: Peripheral People

Author: Michelle Moore & Reesa Herberth

Publisher: Riptide


Genre: Action/Adventure, Bisexual, Gay, M/M Romance, Paranormal, Science Fiction, Space Opera, Thriller


Corwin Menivie and Nika Santivan are decorated veterans of the Imperial Enforcement Coalition, and are perfectly capable of solving cases the old-fashioned way. When they’re paired with Westley Tavera and Gavin Hale, the most powerful Reader/Ground team to emerge from the Psionics Academy, it could either be the best thing that’s ever happened to crime fighting, or the makings of a quadruple homicide.

During a routine investigation, West’s talent puts them on the trail of a brutal serial killer who traps his prey in a deadly mental playground. Then the killer starts baiting the team, laying psychic landmines at crime scenes and exposing IEC secrets. The strain of the case binds the agents closer together—so close that Nika and Gavin start sharing a room, and even the curmudgeonly Corwin finds himself as occupied with West as he is with the murders.

But as West’s visions of death grow more violent, the only way out for all of them may be straight through the mind of a monster. If they’re not careful, they may forget which side of the hunt they’re on.

Hi, we’re Michelle Moore and Reesa Herberth. The kind people here have invited us to stop by and tell you a little about our newest book, Peripheral People. A standalone novel in the Ylendrian Empire series, Peripheral People combines elements of romance, science fiction, paranormal, and crime drama in the intense, galaxy-spanning hunt for a psychic serial killer. Hot on the trail and hot for each other (in the sense that they’d both prefer to be set on fire than work together), the imperial agents who stumble into the case must evade terrifying mental traps, their own volatile relationship, and the discovery that someone in a higher pay grade may not be so keen on their quest for justice.
We’re thrilled to be with you today, and we’re looking forward to any questions or comments you might have.
Describe Your Book and Characters in Five Words

I suspect I’ve always been a “if 10 words are good, 20 must be AWESOME!” person. Which means even thinking about elevator pitches has always tied me in anxious, under the desk fetal-position knots. (See? There’s no escaping it!)
So I accepted a challenge to try and (accurately) describe Peripheral People and the characters in exactly five words. Okay, I might’ve cheated by not counting the “is a”, but come on, that would suck up, um, some percentage of my five words. 40, yeah, 40%!

Peripheral People is a… darkly funny psychic cop thriller.
Corwin Menivie is a… non-pleated-pants-wearing cop.
Nika Santivan is an… infinitely patient, super-cop partner.
West Tavera is a… crazy-haired, crazy-powerful psy.
Gavin Hale is an… infinitely patient, soothing best friend.

About the Authors

Michelle Moore has a well-documented obsession with travel, television, frappuccinos and flamingos. These, however, come in a distant second to her love of writing. Most evenings she can be found huddled over her laptop at the local Starbucks, dividing her time between actually writing and pretending to be a barista.
Reesa Herberth was born in Nevada and spirited away to California before moving to Hawaii, where she grew up on the Big Island. She tried Arizona for a few years, then lit out for the D.C. area, where her nomadic itch is regularly curbed by the nightmares of urban traffic. She’s held a handful of the requisite crazy writer jobs, including book store overlord, office goddess for an artisan ice cream maker, and cheese-cup scrubber at an organic goat dairy.

Michelle and Reesa have been writing together for over fifteen years. They are currently working on more Ylendrian stories, and a petition to have cat hair recognized as a form of currency.
