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.
Gray nodded. “It’s been a pleasure doing business with you, Commander,” he said. “Give my regards to your boss, whoever that might be.”
She grinned. “Give it up, Gray,” she warned. “Everybody knows Redmaster Blue is a myth.”
Gray’s smile didn’t reach his eyes. “I hope not,” he said calmly. “With the news reports coming out, you’ll need all the protection you can get.”
With a wave of his hand Gray ended their audience.
“Wait,” she said. “What news, Gray?”
He rose and his retinue fell into step around him.
That’s the snippet for the week. Thank you for stopping by.
