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 in the April/May 2016 time frame (fingers crossed that I can keep my schedule).
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…the Lady of the Star Wind…
Maybe a star wind was what Lajollae had used to send her to this world? Somehow, the idea made sense in Sandy’s current situation. Her reception by these women was cordial enough on the surface. Again, that nagging internal alarm sounded. Mark wasn’t here, and she didn’t know where he was, much less where she was, so things couldn’t be fine. She dug the fingernails of her right hand into her palm, hoping the tiny prick of pain would help her throw off the lassitude.
“What have you done?” The new voice rang strident and accusatory. Sandy shifted in her chair to see a fifth woman entering the room.
The four Moon Sisters went to their knees, heads bowed.
I’ll keep going with this scene for a few more weeks….next week the Moon Sisters explain why they brought Sandy to this room.
