On Hiatus

I'm taking a short break from the internet for August, so this blog will be a little quiet for the rest of the month and into the first week of September. In the meantime, there are scheduled posts going up every Wednesday at my cosplay blog - The Intergalactic Seamstress - and at the review blog Critique de Book, plus the odd up to date post at Spacefreighters Lounge on a Tuesday (or you can find my fellow crew mates posting Monday-Friday). See you when September comes!

Six Sentence Sunday #12


Hello! For this week's six, I've taken a random excerpt from Book Four - Seekers of the Nine. Read and hopefully enjoy. Then please check out the other writers in SSS here.



'We need him under our control!'

'We need him alive in the first place!'

Ah, that sounded promising. So his life had some value. Value could be traded. And it would be far more pleasant to be allowed to live.
