A Teaser Tuesday snippet from my WIP Renegades; Book 2 of The Wildblood.
I’ve never written in great detail how the abilities Team Three posses works. I’ve had it set in my mind, and tiny hints here and there in the books (Backlash & The Vista, prequel and Book 1, respectively). Renegades will get in to a lot more detail. This is a scene with all three attempting to have a conversation while they’re hundreds of miles apart.

“You knew Wade didn’t have permission from Command to go to Colorado,” Mac said first, a statement rather than a question.
In the back of his thoughts, it was a question. Shannon could sense it. “I never asked,” she confessed. “I’m the most junior member of Command and at this point, it’s better to shut up and observe than accuse.”
“I haven’t, and I won’t until I can talk to him.”
“Good idea. So talk.” Shan was in Estes Park and it was past midnight, again. She was pacing the floor of her quarters, trying to see things that weren’t visible to the other Vistans.
Mac was asleep in his apartment, in Cody. She could taste the Scotch he’d medicated himself with to enhance the effect.
Wade was far from sleep and far from alone, somewhere in central Colorado.
“Ask him,” she repeated, drawing Mac’s focus. That was the difficult thing, getting focus where all three of them could communicate. For a few moments, there was fog and confusion. Wade drew them together, a bright pinpoint of that focus they lacked.
It dissolved, leaving Team Three sitting together in the dayroom of Station Two. “It’s easier to visualize something you’re familiar with,” Wade explained, sipping coffee from a chipped ceramic cup. They sat across from him, sans coffee or any other sort of libation. Just as well, considering. It would be another distraction.

Renegades is going to explore team members personal lives more intimately as well, along with new places and characters. I’m aiming for a February, 2016 release.
In the meantime, there’s Backlash – on sale for 99¢!
Both are available in several formats.
