Aha! I made it!  You know what to do – click the pic to find more blogs with teaser snippets!

This week I thought I’d take a peek at the actual romance part of the book.  It’s in there, I swear.  Not in a typical sense, but that’s the way it is.  This bit is a reunion of all three characters, and a little history.

Is that how you two met, with the caravans?” JT asked.

He hasn’t told you?”

Capt. Allen, you’re a mystery to me. I asked my brother how many women he was involved with and he said, just one, when she’s ready to be serious.”

Shan raised her eyebrows, savoring the beer, dark, rich, and cold. “Really – and you think he meant me?”

He has spoken your name; I recognize that look of someone infatuated.”

You were worried about me embellishing stories,” Hunter said, settling back.

Did you say that?” Shan asked.

Yes, I did,” Hunter drank too, thinking if there was going to be drunk confessions, he intended to fully participate.

Renegades: Book 2 of The Wildblood is in its final edits and I should have a release date next week at this time.  All my books are available in eBook format and paperback.  If you want to catch up on the series so far, Backlash is the prequel and The Vista: Book 1 of The Wildblood.

And that’s the blog you want to visit for a whole batch of exciting and diverse snippets.

Sorry I’ve been absent.  Between Real Life, formatting, and editing, I’ve run out of summer.  Here’s my snippet, then more news about my projects. This is a scene between Wade and Vance, protagonist and antagonist, and they both know there’s nothing they can do about being adversaries.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

You’re leaving her, in my city, in charge of a military force? A teenage girl? I’ve seen her throwing what amounts to temper tantrums, when she doesn’t get her way.”

Smug with himself, Wade told him, “She’s twenty, now. When she gets her mind set in an idea, she makes sure I know it. Shan is just like me, she knows what she’s doing. You don’t have to approve, but she’s my senior officer here.”

Not ‘just like you’,” Vance pointed out. “We both know that.”

Wade shrugged off the ominous comment.

Renegades: Book 2 of The Wildblood is in its final edits and should be available in a few weeks.  Yay me!

In other series news, Backlash and The Vista are both available in paperback now, as well as ebook formats.  So is Hunter’s Moon.

I have a new sci-fi started.  It’s a apocalypse/time travel/dimensional travel thing just in rough draft.  It’s a great idea, I just have to put it down in words.  This one is going to be a bit more graphic in adult content.

I think that’s it.  Follow the graphic to my website for links to everything that’s available.

Gethyon Cover Reveal

 

Abandoned. Hunted. Out of control.

Gethyon Rees had always felt at odds with the universe, and hoped for an escape among the stars. But discovering he has the ability to cross time and space with just a thought brings more problems than it solves: a deadly bounty hunter who can follow him anywhere, the unwelcome return of Tarquin Secker—the mother who abandoned him—and an ancient darkness that seeks him and all those with his talents.

When an unforgivable act sets him on the run, it’ll take more than his unearthly powers to save his skin and the lives of those he cares about. It’ll take a sacrifice he never expected to have to make.

A science fiction adventure novel previously published by BURST (Champagne Books), and part of the Travellers Universe. A 2014 SFR Galaxy Award Winner for Most Awesome Psychic Talent and a 2015 EPIC eBook Awards finalist in the Science Fiction category. Also now includes the SF short story The Bones of the Sea.

“With colorful worlds full of nuance and dimension, characters that walk off the page, and themes that anyone who has been either parent or child can relate to.” J.C. Cassels, author of The Black Wing Chronicles series

“This fast-paced, gripping ride zips through time and space, love and loss, rebellion and acceptance.” Anna McLain, SFR Galaxy Award judge

Gethyon stumbled and fell. Light burst across his vision, a violent assault of color, and he threw up an arm to defend himself. Something brushed against him, spun him, and then another bruising impact sent him backward.

“Watch where you’re going,” someone scolded.

Gethyon dropped his arm and squinted, fighting to keep his balance. People flowed around him, but the man who’d spoken was already moving away, a reproving frown on his face.

Soft sunlight gleamed from smooth marble, a blend of gray, green, and white beneath his feet. Humans bustled in different directions, each intent on their own concerns, with only the odd, inquisitive glance thrown his way as he stood, alone and bewildered, in their midst. He faced a distant horizon framed by the jagged spires of mountains. To either side of where he stood, the mountains ran in tooth-like bronze spines. The plaza seemed to be a main pedestrian thoroughfare in the middle of a wide valley. He stared. Where was he?

“Hey!”

Gethyon dragged his head around toward the speaker, forcing his eyes to focus. Buildings in the same pastel marble filled the valley ahead. Cold shock drenched him at the sight of two uniformed men between him and the nearest edifice, one warden aiming a finger straight at him.

“Hey, no unauthorized teleportation in the plaza!”

Gethyon turned and ran. Shouts from behind told him pursuit followed. He dodged between the idling crowds, staggering as his legs quivered.

What happened?

He’d done it again—sent himself elsewhere—but how? And why could he do it? What was he?

Bio:

After spending twelve years working as an Analytical Chemist in a Metals and Minerals laboratory, Pippa Jay is now a stay-at-home mum who writes scifi and the supernatural. Somewhere along the way a touch of romance crept into her work and refused to leave. In between torturing her plethora of characters, she spends the odd free moment playing guitar very badly, punishing herself with freestyle street dance, and studying the Dark Side of the Force. Although happily settled in the historical town of Colchester in the UK with her husband of 22 years and three little monsters, she continues to roam the rest of the Universe in her head.

Pippa Jay is a dedicated member of the Science Fiction Romance Brigade, and Broad Universe, blogging at Spacefreighters Lounge, Adventures in Scifi, and Romancing the Genres. Her works include YA and adult stories crossing a multitude of subgenres from scifi to the paranormal, often with romance, and she’s one of eight authors included in a science fiction romance anthology—Tales from the SFR Brigade. She’s also a double SFR Galaxy Award winner, been a finalist in the Heart of Denver RWA Aspen Gold Contest (3rd place), the 2015 EPIC eBook awards, the 2015 RWA LERA Rebecca (2nd place), and the GCC RWA Silken Sands Star Awards (2nd place).

You can stalk her at her website, or at her blog, but without doubt her favorite place to hang around and chat is on Twitter as @pippajaygreen.

Here Again

I’ve been horrible at keeping up on social media the past few weeks.  Editing is occupying all my waking moments.  The good news is, Renegades will be released soon.  Autumn, this year.  The other good news is – The Wildblood series is going to print!

Wooo!  I actually have a copy – a real, live paperback – of Backlash.  It’s so cool.  It’s also available through Amazon.  The Vista will be following along shortly, and of course, Renegades.

As for other projects, there is a SFR creeping around the corner, demanding I let it out.  More on that, as it moves along.

I’ve also been playing with the idea of novellas in The Wildblood universe.  There are so many stories.  We’ll see.

That’s it.  I have to hit the books again.  Plus, go pet my shiny new paperback.

New 5 Star Review – An action packed, non-stop, sci-fi, dystopian thrill seeker. Backlash is a short prequel that will give you a great taste of what you’ll get in the Wildblood Series.

The paperback cover, and the current ebook cover. Once I have a set date on printing, I’ll be switching it over so they’re all the same.
