Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories.
This week, I’ll continue posting snippets from my forthcoming release, Cosmic Rift, Book 4 in the Grand Masters’ Galaxy.
Empath Violet embarks on a new and desperate mission to find her missing lover.
Violet’s happy family is shattered when Athanor Griffin vanishes. The formidable Grand Master might have teleported anywhere in the galaxy. Violet strives to find her psychic partner, while looking after their baby and fulfilling his duties on the Council. Her frantic search uncovers a new threat to galactic civilization along with resurgence of the infamous Ixioth slavers. The Council dithers in response to her call for action, and even her former allies believe the Griffin is dead. She must risk her son, her psi-powers, and her life to rescue her beloved mate in the hope they can unite to fight the menace.
Informal Tag line: Even galaxy-trotting heroines need a babysitter.

It ended with the sentence: She hummed to little Varan, alert for his father to pop in at any moment. I've skipped a few sentences.
Judging the time with the precision of habit, she laid Varan in the crib, kissed his mop of dark hair, and tucked the blanket with the blue griffin around him. The two fluffies hopped over the rail and snuggled beside the little boy. She brushed her fingers over their long silky fur. Rascal rubbed against her bare legs and mewed for his share of attention.
“Violet!” Athanor’s mental cry pierced her thoughts.
Pain stabbed her temples.
Rascal yowled. The fluffies uncurled and twitched their little noses in the air.
Had they heard Athanor or just picked up on her alarm?
Cosmic Rift, Book 4 in the Grand Masters’ Galaxy is on pre-order for $2.99 and releases June 23rd at: Amazon iBooks Kobo B&N
