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!

#Science #Fiction #Fantasy Saturday #63

Hi! Welcome to this week's #sffsat snippet. I'm continuing with my scifi romance short Imprint from the Tales from the SFR Brigade anthology, now available from Smashwords, B&N and Kobo for FREE! Yay! So, last time we met Jiona on a crazy plunge into traffic as she made her escape from a heist. Now she's back at her base, but all is not well...

The chamber beyond was in chaos. Cold washed through her. Jiona eyed the wreckage that had recently been her laboratory, her chest locking tight. While she’d been busting the TransGalactic Bank’s vault and dallying with Tevik, someone had turned over her hidden base. Which, judging by the evidence, was not well hidden enough. It couldn’t have been Tevik. It wasn’t his style for one, and he’d been so close on her trail at the bank she’d imagined his hot breath on the back of her neck the whole time she’d been on the job. No, this had to be someone else entirely. Either a rival or—

...and I'm so going to leave it hanging there. Bwah-ha-haaaa! If you want to find out exactly who or what is responsible, check out the book widget in the right hand side bar for links to various digital formats available.

  4. A cliffhanger AND maniacal laugh! I can almost hear the guy playing the piano in the corner as the curtain comes down. Great twist and extra points for using the word "dallying".

    OK, I ordered it for my NOOK. Don't know what's with Amazon lately; I lowered the e-book price on Tourist Trap almost 6 months ago and they still haven't lowered theirs

  11. Love the cliff hanger--I'm going to have to get a copy of this before I head back to work. Joina is tough, thinking so logically through her problem when most people are too ruffled by the intrusion. Makes me want to see what she does next.
