Welcome to Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. Snippets of fifteen sentences or less are yours for the reading!
Welcome back! I’ve been hard at work on the third book in THE BLACK WING CHRONICLES series. This snippet comes from a scene early in the book, just before Bo Barron makes the transition from frying pan to fire. The book opens with her in the middle of a job, breaking a crime lord’s kid brother out of a Third Sector detention center. Bo comes away with a lot more than she bargained for, including another inmate who somehow managed to stow away aboard her ship. In this scene, she’s turning over the crime lord Gray’s kid brother to him in exchange for the payment he promised.
She gestured toward the communications terminal on the table. “My credit transfer?” she asked.
“Already taken care of.”
Bo’s lips twitched in a bland smile. “You don’t mind if I check for myself?”
Gray waved a hand and one of the Q’mann pushed the terminal across the table to her. “Be my guest, Bo,” he said. “You’ll find everything in order. Not even I would be brave enough to try to cheat Redmaster Blue out of a fee well-earned.”
Bo didn’t believe that for a nanosecond and she flashed him a look that said so.
That’s the snippet for the week. Thank you for stopping by.
If you’re interested in reading more about Bo, you can pick up your ebook copies of SOVRAN’S PAWN and HERO’S END for Nook and Kindle at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
