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 #66

Cover by Danielle Fine
Welcome to another #sixsunday post - thank you for your visit and any comments. I'm continuing with my latest release, a science fiction romance short - Terms & Condition Apply. Soren has corrected Marie's assumption that he's just a machine - more precisely a replica of a human with real memories. But his revelation that some avatars carry the persona of a criminal leaves her questioning further...

“Then what were you?”
He frowned and dropped his gaze. “I had a debilitating disease, one that was gradually crippling me. I was facing a slow, painful and humiliating death. My fiancĂ©e broke off our engagement so I chose voluntary euthanasia.” He paused and Marie, her chest tight at the pain in his words, leaned forward to touch her fingers to the back of his hand in silent sympathy.
