Ahhh, another weekend.  This one is going to be dusty, here in the desert.

Check out the WeWriWa page for some amazing authors and their 8.


OK, here’s the sneak peek at my newest venture, Hunter’s Moon. Another encounter between the MCs. As it’s a novella, it will be released next and I’m aiming for the end of April or the first week of May. By next weekend, I should have a firm date set.

The keycard to my room flashes red and won’t let me in. I have about an hour before I am supposed to be leaving for Monterrey, and I’m locked out of my room. I step back to study the situation and collide with a brick wall that wasn’t there five seconds ago. The breath stops in my throat. I’m standing in full sunlight coming from the window here at the end of the hall, so whoever I’ve backed into is scarier than a vampire. My brain tells me this as I teeter on the edge of panic.

I spin around and he already knows I’m going for a throat strike. He swats my hand away like I’m five. So much for martial arts training. ‘Samael’ smiles at me like I’m lunch as he pushes me back into the door.

Catt Sayer, an abused peasant and a fugitive from justice on her home planet, makes a meager living flying a decrepit airship that delivers supplies to scattered military bases on an isolated, inhospitable mining moon. When enemies invade the moon and destroy the bases, Catt rescues the lone survivor—Captain Hank Dukelsky, an upper-class army captain. Now Hank wants her to risk her life on an impossible quest to attack the enemy headquarters…and Catt is falling in love with both the man and his magnificently quixotic ambition.

Right off, here’s a link to the WeWriWa blog.  Check it out for other writers sharing their 8!  Or, in my case, 10.



This week, something different. I’ve got a novella, sitting here gathering eDust, and decided to go ahead and publish. It’s not my usual scifi thing – this one is a paranormal, urban fantasy novella with a dash of erotica thrown in. No, really. Here’s some words from Hunter’s Moon.

Lyra and Morgan Alexander (sister and brother team) are discussing her recent run-in with a mysterious shapeshifter.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

“A lot of ancient text consider ‘Samael’ to be the angelic name of Lucifer; others call him ‘the angel of death’.” Morgan mulled on it a few moments, letting me lead him back to my cozy corner. “Is that what your shapeshifter called himself?” he finally asks.

“Yea, it is.”

“He is neither,” Morgan tells me.

“I know,” I say.

“He said it to scare you.”

“It worked.”

“If I thought this was all an elaborate trap, do you think I’d be letting you get on that airplane tomorrow?” he asks in all seriousness.

“It is an elaborate trap, Morgan, just not for me.”
