Here’s the link to the Weekend Writing Warriors central page, so you can visit all the participants sharing excerpts today…a fun way to sample new books and find new authors! (Also welcome to the Sunday Snippet visitors!)
Continuing with science fiction romance today. Here’s an excerpt from Lady of the Star Wind, an epic portal fantasy, which is undergoing a final edit and will be released after Star Cruise: Outbreak sometime early next year.
Sandy and Mark have been transported to an unknown world after breaking the Globe of Amarkana (you may remember those excerpts earlier in the year?). This snippet is from quite a bit further in the novel, after Mark and Sandy have left the mysterious mountain oasis (which wasn’t a zoo after all), in the company of some new friends… Sandy was bitten by a snake, went into the green light with a woman unknown to her and now is sitting in a room she’s never seen before, with four women who seem to think Sandy is someone else…(the Rothan mentioned here is a local, traveling with Sandy and Mark.)
“I told you she wasn’t who we believed her to be,” The diminutive redhead spoke, voice triumphant, “We’ve made a mistake.”
“She has the key,” answered the blonde, sinking into one of the empty chairs.
The first woman who’d led them into the room made a shushing gesture. Turning to Sandy, she said, “We’re the Moon Sisters who watch over this world—Amrell, Terali, Lifnid, and Tresa.” She raised her eyebrows, “And you are?”
“Alessandra of the Outlier Empire.” She thought at least one of the names in the introduction sounded familiar – hadn’t Rothan made some reference to Amrell a few days ago?
“A name we’ve never heard before and a mortal we don’t know.” Tresa, the redhead, poured herself a drink, “We’re going to regret this rash proceeding.”
I’ll keep going with this scene for a few more weeks – there’s quite a bit more. I started the search for stock photos for the cover last week.
And in other news, I’m a new contributor to Amazing Stories, with my emphasis on science fiction romance. Here was my first post: http://amazingstoriesmag.com/2016/01/veronica-scott-talks-science-fiction-romance/
I’ll be blogging there twice a month, in addition to my USA Today/HEA SciFi Encounters column.
