Welcome to Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. Snippets of ten to fifteen sentences or less are yours for the reading!
I am posting Part VIII as well, because earlier, while I was trying to edit Part VII, my tablet app posted it ahead of time. So here is a bonus snippet from BARRON’S LAST STAND. Keep in mind, this is the first time these two have seen each other in five years, Blade took advantage of Bo’s prison break, and he stowed away aboard her ship. Now, he’s on his knees in her engine room and she’s got a blaster trained on him while she is trying to decide whether to shoot the lying bastard, or kick him out the nearest airlock. Her greatest fear is that she’ll forget how angry she is with him and let him turn her life upside down again. As the song says, “He looks like a cool drink of water but he’s candy coated misery…He’s the devil in disguise, a snake with blue eyes…”
“I’m surprised Lord Marin let you keep up your extracurricular activities. The last I heard he wanted you for a desk job on Trisdos.”
His gaze narrowed. His pleasant demeanor faded. “You know why I turned that down,” he said softly.
Bo shook her head. “Don’t give me that. You didn’t want that job and we both know it. Your decision had nothing to do with me.”
“My decision had everything to do with you.”
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.
If you’d like to read a sneak peek at BARRON’S LAST STAND you can find the first chapter at the end of HERO’S END and here on my website.
