WeWriWa 01/27/19

Missed last week, sorry about that.  Things are weird and unsettled here.  I’ll be moving in the next 3 – 6 months, so if I disappear again, it’s that.  It should be interesting, getting internet out in the literal middle of nowhere.

So, you’re reading snippets.  Here’s a couple places you can find some amazing authors – WeWriWa & Snippet Sunday!  I’m sure I had something hilarious to say, but it’s been a long week.  I’ll try again next time.

PS – they are updating at WordPress, it seems.  My links are all pinks!


When I say my life is bizarre right now, trust me.  I’ve gotten very little written on Tau Scorpii, but I have planned some promotions for Bloodlines.  So, this week, you’re getting a peek at Bloodlines.  The upcoming week may be hectic, I can’t tell from here.  There will be new words soon, I swear.  


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.

In this snippet, the conflict between Council and Command has come to the breaking point.  It’s time for Security to regroup and reassess their priorities.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

While you were in the air, Council continued their meeting, or called a new one, depending on your perspective,” Mac warned the group of officers.

Did they have Security issue warrants for us?” Shan got right to the point.

They did not, however, they have demanded the files from Manitou. Command will surrender them, but we considered this, when we wrote the reports.”

So there’s nothing to worry about?” Taylor asked.

The only people now who might have issues are Wade, and Capt. Allen.”  The irony didn’t escape Mac – he’d been the one to fire anti-tank missiles into the bunker, killing Rafe and an unknown number of his people. None of that information existed, on paper, and in fact, a significant percentage of the reports were fabricated.

Wade’s in the wind,” Green verified.

Maybe they’ll send someone to arrest me,” Shan scoffed.

That’s it.  With this book, the story arc is complete.  I can’t say I won’t revisit this world again, but Tau Scorpii is next.  Promos follow.

Bloodlines: Book 3 of The Wildblood
Learning the truth about the Altered, and the legacy of The Vista, is the first priority of Team Three. It may earn them exile from their home. They know this. Failure is not an option.  Loyalty has its price. So does revenge. Someone has to pay.

WeWriWa 01/13/19


It’s a new year, and here I am, with a new published book!  more about that later.  Right now, check out the WeWriWa & Snippet Sunday pages for dedicated authors willing to share with you.


So, Bloodlines has been out 3 days now, and has special pricing until the 24th.  While it is the final book in this particular story arc, it’s not likely the last book in The Wildblood world.  For now, Tau Scorpii is up next, and that’s my snippet.

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.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 

Taryn and her band of merry adventurers have returned to Argent.  Things on their desert world have changed far more quickly than they expected, and she goes where she feels safe, and confides in the one person she knows has answers – Asher.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Rain,” Asher repeated, stopping. “You always believed the stories, even after all the times I told you the tales of Earth mean nothing here.”

It rained on us, all of us, up on Flatrock, less than half a day ago. Right after a band of Caerule tried to talk to us,” Taryn told him quietly.

Asher nodded, “I know.”

About the rain, or the Caerule?” She was grimy, hungry, and exhausted, even more so than her last venture to the city. If he was angry with her, it didn’t show.

Both. Get your men, we’re going to the Keep.”

Yep, that’s it this week.  I’m just getting back into the habit of writing, after taking the week off for the release of Bloodlines.  PS – there is a promo right under this line!
