What better way to kick off this blog than with a snippet from BARRON’S LAST STAND for Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday? The idea is to feature a snippet of your work for others to enjoy. In that spirit, I welcome you to my blog and offer this tiny teaser for your amusement.
Our heroine Bo Barron, has just taken her ship into hyperspace following a successful prison break that she was hired to manage. Unknown to her, along with her paid passenger, her estranged husband, Blade Devon, (a government operative also being held at the prison,) followed her and stowed away aboard her ship. She has just discovered him trying to pass unnoticed in her engine room.
With a sound mental shake, Bo tightened her grip on her blaster and clenched her jaw. He did not get to swagger back into her life as if nothing had happened.
“On your knees!” she snarled. “Now! Keep your hands where I can see them!”
“Now, love, let’s not do anything hasty,” Blade said calmly as he obeyed.
“Don’t worry. Anything I do to you I’ve been thinking about doing for a long time.”
You can find a brief summary of BARRON’S LAST STAND, along with a link to a longer excerpt on the Works In Progress page. It is, as the page suggests, a work in progress. Provided there are no more world-shattering crises, the finished manuscript should be in the hands of eager publishers and agents by the end of January.
