The Debt Collector by Susan Kaye Quinn

The Debt Collector by Susan Kaye Quinn


From the author of the bestselling Mindjack series comes a new future-noir serial, The Debt Collector. The first episode, Delirium, launches today (3/20).


What’s your life worth on the open market?

A debt collector can tell you precisely.


Lirium plays the part of the grim reaper well, with his dark trenchcoat, jackboots, and the black marks on his soul that every debt collector carries. He’s just in it for his cut, the ten percent of the life energy he collects before he transfers it on to the high potentials, the people who will make the world a better place with their brains, their work, and their lives. That hit of life energy, a bottle of vodka, and a visit from one of Madam Anastazja’s sex workers keep him alive, stable, and mostly sane… until he collects again. But when his recovery ritual is disrupted by a sex worker who isn’t what she seems, he has to choose between doing an illegal hit for a girl whose story has more holes than his soul or facing the bottle alone—a dark pit he’s not sure he’ll be able to climb out of again.


Contains mature content and themes. For YA-appropriate thrills, see Susan’s Mindjack series.


Delirium is approximately 12,000 words or 48 pages and is one of nine episodes in the first season of The Debt Collector serial. This dark and gritty future-noir is about a world where your life-worth is tabulated on the open market and going into debt risks a lot more than your credit rating. You can find out more about the series at the Debt Collector website and facebook page. The Debt Collector newsletter is a special list just for episode releases.


Early Praise

 “The street-smart science of LOOPER meets the cold, just-the-facts voice of DOUBLE INDEMNITY in this edgy, future-noir thriller that will have you holding your breath, looking over your shoulder, and begging for more.” —Leigh Talbert Moore, author of The Truth About FakingThe Truth About Letting Go, and Rouge

“Do you owe more than your life is worth? No worries. A more deserving person than you can benefit from that excess life—and someone else will get paid with it. Enter the Debt Collector.” —Dianne Salerni, author of We Hear the DeadThe Caged Graves, and The Eighth Day (HarperCollins 2014)


The first three episodes of Debt Collector will be released a week apart, starting Wednesday 3/20. The remaining episodes will release every two weeks. Delirium can be found on AmazonBarnes&NobleiTunesKobo. Or add it to your TBR on Goodreads.


Susan Kaye Quinn is the author of the bestselling YA SF Mindjack series. Debt Collector is her more grown-up SF. Her steampunk fantasy romance is temporarily on hold while she madly writes episodes to keep Lirium happy. Plus she needs to leave time to play on Facebook. Susan has a lot of degrees in engineering, which come in handy when dreaming up dangerous mind powers, future dystopias, and slightly plausible steampunk inventions. Mostly she sits around in her pajamas in awe that she gets make stuff up full-time.

On this blog I will focus on my adult works. Right now I only have one in the works. This adult fantasy series has action, romance, drama and erotica. Whether it’s dealing with relationships or friendships, fighting enemies or shifting allies, I hope this book will keep readers glued to the very last page. Read on to find out more:

Untitled – Book One in It’s Hard being a Hatter Series: Dax is a hunter, he and his group hunt the shape shifting creatures used by The Queen of Hearts to do her worst dirty work. Of course some do a little hunting on the side and Dax is all for it. Until one night during a blood bath raid on one of the queen’s shifter patrols where Dax looks into the eyes of a young wolf shifter and freezes. Not just his hand but his heart is held at a stand still. Now Dax is at a turning point. With a shifter crashing at his house and coming to terms with his sexuality can live the life he’s always lived when he’s already harbouring a secret from everyone? That he’s Darian Hatter, the lover and loyal follower of the queen who was framed and sent off to torture by the woman he loved. And what of the young shifter and Dax’s friends who only see shifters good for one thing. A filler for a hole in the ground.
