At least WeWriWa keeps me writing – even if it’s only 10 sentences a week! That’s a joke. Want to catch more snippets? Check out the WeWriWa page, there are some awesome authors hanging out there. Sunday Snippet too!
Ok, let’s do this all over again! I’m writing a book. Nifty, huh. This one, The Myth of SolTerra, (possibly Tau Scorpii Book One) is a Sci-Fi Romance. Please forgive my creative punctuation. I’m keeping it to 10 sentences, and I won’t lie, this is a first draft and my punctuation is pretty questionable at this point anyway.
Blurb – 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.

He circled the pair, taking into account everything, stopping in front of Taryn, “Have you changed your name again?”
“Not yet,” she said quietly, “I might have to. There’s a migration happening.”
“I am aware, no thanks to you.”
“The Caerule are south of the Highmarch.”
“Now that, I didn’t know,” he peered at her, expecting her to have more to say. “I leave for a few days break, and I come back to find you, moving mercenaries into the city.”
“An enemy of an enemy.”
“If you believe that makes him our friend, I’m sending you home to go back to school. I don’t want to bury what’s left of your family, stop being impulsive, you know where it leads.”

Bloodlines: Book 3 of The Wildblood is at the editor/beta readers, although I’m missing my actual editor now. I’m not certain how this will effect my release date, but I promise to let you know when it’s happening. If you’d like to catch up on the series, follow the graphic right to my website. PS – yes, The Vista has a new cover. Apparently, the previous one offended a big retailer who shall remain un-named.
