Saturday Snippet: Cold Surveillance

Welcome to Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. Snippets of ten sentences or less are yours for the reading!

This scene comes from HERO’S END which releases this week!!

Surveillance is never easy, especially when you’re alone and cold.


Bo reached into the bag on the passenger seat and pulled out a scanner. With fingers made clumsy and numb from the cold, she turned it over in her hand and switched it on, keying it for the right frequency. The display flashed as it booted up, then cleared and settled into a pattern. Bo set the scanner on the dashboard and settled in to wait.

The minute sensor she’d hidden in the grip of her Capre sprang to life and began transmitting data. Flexing her fingers, Bo cupped her hands and blew into them, then rubbed them together. She had to keep the blood flowing. This was the hard part, especially when she was uncomfortable. She had to wait patiently for Rex to move.


That’s the snippet for the week. Thank you for stopping by.

If you’re interested in reading ALL of HERO’S END, you can pick up your ebook copy for Nook and Kindle Wednesday at Amazon or Barnes & Noble, or you can order a limited edition, autographed paperback copy here.

  1. Congrats on Hero’s End release. The cover looks awesome! Surveillance and comfort just don’t go together – do they? Can’t turn the car on – the exhaust draws attention. Bo’s a tuff gal, she’ll manage.

    1. Waiting is bad enough, but I’m from Florida, I can’t stand being cold, too!!

      Thanks, I can hardly wait. The pre-ordered paperbacks have already started going out and the comments from the first readers are trickling in.
