I missed the WeWriWa deadline this week.  Today was apparently not Friday.  Check out their blog for a talented and eclectic array of authors sharing their snippets.  I usually do, but it’s been a rough week.  Everyone is good, but tired.

So, here’s some musical insight into The Wildblood series.  I’ve post soundtracks for each of the books.  This is for Bloodlines.

 

There’s a running theme for each book, and the series.  Writer’s block – MP3 player.  Kids arguing?  MP3 player.  (PS – they are adults, I don’t have to get involved in it.)  Power out?  You guessed it, MP3 player.

The Wildblood Series

Twenty years after civilization stopped, 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 land they know nothing about, where the line between enemy and ally is blurred.

Before Team Three, there was The Blackout.
Backlash, prequel to The Wildblood

The Vista: Book 1 of The Wildblood
What would you do, to protect your home?

Renegades: Book 2 of The Wildblood
Uncontrollable. Unpredictable. Dangerous. The Wildblood.

Now, Team Three know what they are.

 

Bloodlines: Book 3 of The Wildblood
Loyalty has its price. So does revenge. Someone has to pay.

All are available in paperback and eBooks – http://www.topaz08.com

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.

All my MCs are gathered, talking about why they shouldn’t go out into the desert.  Asher tells them why they should.  Please keep in mind, this is a first draft.  I’ll make it pretty & shiny, later on.

Our city wasn’t the first one there. There were others, ancient ones, alien ones. There is the chance, whoever they were knew many things about Sedna, about the way the seasons change,” Asher revealed.  “The adults even considered, that they were native to the planet, and it was dying. They brought other species here to reseed it. Pure speculation, but if there’s a chance, we need to know. If the desert becomes an ocean, a real ocean, we have to deal with it while we still can. That means I have a city to move, through hostile places.”

All while avoiding the Caerule,” Garrett said.

And a dozen other vicious species that would hunt us to extinction, if we were that vulnerable,” Taryn added.

This is a bit later on during the conversation I posted last week.  Taryn doesn’t have to get the last word in, but she certainly has some words.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I’m not stupid, of course I don’t want to be in charge,” Taryn said. “You both have years more experience, in the desert, in wars, in dealing with other clans. I’m going because I’m the fresh eyes and ideas you need, to figure out all the new things happening here. If you want my opinion, I’ll be out watching the star-rise; let me know what you decide to do.” With a cocky nod of her head, she strode out of the library.

She just called us old,” Garrett said after a few moments. “But she does have a point.”

Always,” Asher said. “You need to take her south, you need to listen to her. To clarify, do not let her provoke you into something you know you shouldn’t be doing – remind her how old and wise you are.”

My move is getting closer, maybe as soon as 4 weeks.  Maybe not.  For now, I’m doing promos for Bloodlines, and The Wildblood series.  If you’re interested in the post-apocalyptic type,  this story arc is complete.  I’m pretty excited about it.

I’ll start in on Tau Scorpii promos as soon as my plans are a little more set, and I get a better idea when a release date is.
