I never get as much writing done as I want, but things are moving right along. Bloodlines is up this week. Being book 3 in the series, I know a lot of you are probably new to it. I’m going to list some Character Profiles after the snippet, in case anyone is interested.
Also – check out WeWriWa, where I got the great idea to (attempt) to blog very week, and where a lot of amazing writers hang out. Snippet Sunday, is another place a recommend. You can never have too many favorite authors!
The Wildblood Series
A Post-Apocalyptic Action Adventure
No one remembers what started the war, the big one. Civilization stopped, and what came next was fueled by rage and fear.
Twenty years on, a tiny refuge, a place called The Vista, may be one of the last vestiges of humanity. Isolated, guarded, and hiding a dark secret, the people have survived World War Last, and they are content with that. Their children, however, are not. The search for others will send them out into a world they know nothing about, where the line between enemy and ally is blurred.

This week, Shan & Hunter are out in the world, and they’ve run across some hostile Nomads. Outside of The Vista, they are on the defensive, and there are civilians close by. They want to control the situation before it gets out of hand, but you don’t always get what you want.
They attempt to reason with the intruders, first.

“You told him your name,” Shan said quietly.
“Yeah, I told him my name, so the hell what – Angelfire is five hundred miles away, and to you, it might as well be on the moon.”
“Never tell someone your name,” she offered cryptically.
“Is there a particular reason he keeps you close?” Ryan leered.
As tall as the Nomad, Shan tipped her head up and stared straight at him.
“Bodyguard, and you can take that any way you want, I’m still alive,” Hunter said.
“The thing is, we just work for them, we aren’t from Angelfire, we don’t live there, we can’t, but they’re more than happy to pay us for our services.” He let that sink in, to whatever ends they might assume.
“Trying to make me think you’re one of the mutant freaks the rich folks use for their dirty work doesn’t scare me, I know them when I see them.”

PS – never call an Altered a mutant freak. They won’t take it well. Tune in next week for the result of this conversation.
All 3 available books in The Wildblood series are 99c each this weekend, for the Labor Day holiday here in the US, Amazon only.
