Switching back to 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?). They found themselves in an oasis-like area with no exit. Mark is speaking.

“I think our pocket paradise was built into a plateau. Took master builders to carve all this. Let’s explore the boundaries, shall we?”

After another few moments of walking through a haphazard orchard of various types of fruit trees, they reached the outer wall. A ten-foot wall of stones stacked together with no mortar, yet linked perfectly, formed the barricade, running in both directions as far as he could see. He couldn’t insert so much as a fingernail between the blocks. Troubled, he gave her a look, “The zoo-like aspects of this bother me.”


“Perfect human habitat enclosed by a stone wall, male and female specimens trapped inside – the confined surroundings don’t concern you?”

Eyebrows raised, she stared at the wall, “Now that you mention it, yes.”

No cover, no blurb as yet! All in good time…..
