Check out the Weekend Writing Warriors blog for many authors and their snippet awesomeness!
Let’s see what I have this week. It’s just more than a week until the release of my novella Backlash, which is a prequel to The Wildblood series. I’m sure I’ll be giving some copies away. For now, a snippet and some promo stuff. The snippet is a discussion about how ready Team Three is to have a Scout.

“So are you taking your Scout out tomorrow?” Ballentyne, Mick in his off-duty time, peered down from the second floor loft, in civilian clothes, jeans and a tee-shirt.
“Is she ready to drive around by herself?” Wade asked.
“She’s been ready all summer.”
“We haven’t been ready,” Mac said, not joking.
“Give her the keys, tell her she’s on regular rotation with us,” Wade told Ballentyne.
“Are you sure?” Mac asked quietly, keeping the conversation private.
“I should’ve put her on the road the week she turned sixteen, but I’d have had her parents and you to deal with,” Wade commented.

Before Team Three became Team Three, there was The Blackout.
Vista Security is used to the feral bands of human wandering the landscape since a brief and devastating war wiped away civilization. Sixteen years later, they’ve adapted to dealing with the challenges facing their safe haven.
That is, until a new threat appears, one they never expected and one they have little defense against. Security throws in everything they can muster; it quickly takes a toll. Their advantage – an untested team of officers barely more than children themselves; officers with dark secrets and a hidden agenda.
In a free-for-all battle to preserve one of the last sanctuaries of man, Team Three discovers their secrets are their strength and that their future will take them far beyond what they’ve ever known.
Action, a bit of romance and a good splash of sci-fi set the scene for Backlash, the prequel novella of The Wildblood series.
