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!

SFFSAT #48

Hello! *waves* wow, it's been a while since I've posted for #sffsat, and note the new venue. For my return, I'm going to post a snippet from my current WIP Keir's Fall, the sequel to my current published work Keir, and my hero's landed in some trouble...

Pain etched through his skull. Green light blazed across his vision. Figures moved within the light and his gaze locked onto them. Knights in odd emerald armor, warriors of a kind he had never seen before. Mirrored lenses covered their faces, reflecting bright flashes that blinded him, and he raised a shaky hand to shield his eyes.
What are they? Who are they? 
The warriors advanced relentlessly, and he pushed himself up, certain only of his need to escape. But his limbs shook and refused to support him, and he fell back among the rocks again. Rough surfaces scraped his skin and blood left a metallic tang in his mouth.

  4. Maybe they're inviting him to have a cup of tea with him? Maybe? *sigh* I guess not. What happens next?!

  5. Wow, great descriptions and I can totally 'feel' it. Haven't gotten to reading Keir yet, but it's all lined up in my TBR. I look forward to it.
