Aha! You caught me not be ready for a blogpost. Shocking, isn’t it? I should have a release date for Bloodlines next week at this time. That’s about it, editing that & getting a few words down for Tau Scorpii.
When Taryn rescues another human from a marauding band of Caeruleum, she is reunited with clansmen long believed dead. It puts her at odds with their new chieftan, as well as her own partner, a powerful privateer. They discover, they have a more imminent problem, and must unite to survive.
The weather is changing. They’ll have to fight other species for control as migrations begin, food becomes scarce, and border wars erupt across the territories. Humans are no longer at the top of the food chain.
Tau Scorpii A, a massive red giant star in a binary cluster with Tau Scorpii B, a yellow dwarf. The solar system is populated by more than thirty planets, at least one habitable. Called Sedna by the SolTerrans that live there, named for a planet in their ancestral system. The desert is a dangerous place for alien species – and on Sedna, they’re all alien species.

A small band of curious humans have made their way into uncharted lands. They avoid a confrontation with their foes, the race of Caerule, but the reasons are murky.

“Something scared them,” Taryn pulled her garb tighter around her, feeling the wind shift again.
“They were scared off by the dust storm, out in the High Desert,” Garrett said.
“We need to ride on,” Aiden interrupted.
“If something frightened the Caerule into running away, we should figure out what it was,” Skye argued.
“Yeah, that’s what,” Aiden insisted, looking back the way they’d came from, at clouds, dark and rolling in fast, creating an ominous wall of dust that was on them before they could move.
Except it wasn’t dust. Only one of them knew what to think of it, as the storm engulfed them.
“Rain,” Taryn said, turning her face upwards, as water fell from the sky.

There it is for the week. I’m not certain if I’ll have posts over the next couple of weeks, but I will be back. The graphic takes you to my website, where you can find The Books.
Happy Holidays to everyone!
