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, 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…I should explain that there is an actual key is carved from amethyst and worn as a necklace.
“I’m the senior in the sky at the moment, let me handle this.” The leader, Amrell, seemed annoyed, frowning, tapping her toe on the mosaic floor. Gazing at Sandy, she said, “How came you to own the key?”
“I found it in the Oasis of the Travelers, inside the mountain dwelling when we arrived,” Sandy said. “Mark and I were sent to this world by Lajollae, with one of her globes. Maybe you know of her?”
Her audience gasped. The three who’d remained standing hastily sought chairs.
“We believed you were the Lady of the Star Wind, returned at long last, reborn perhaps,” said Amrell, rubbing her forehead. “We’ve much missed your—her company, and when it became known you were waiting in the temple, we had no other thought but to bring you here as we did in olden times.”
I’ll keep going with this scene for a few more weeks – there’s quite a bit more. I’m really impatient to release this one! But STAR CRUISE: OUT BREAK is my priority….
