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.

The final line was: Had they heard Athanor or just picked up on her alarm?
(I’ve skipped a couple of lines and re-punctuated to fit.)
She couldn’t think clearly with the baby crying. Damping the upsurge of her emotions, she picked up her son and soothed him with a song. Ten minutes later, he quietened and she laid him back on the mattress. His quiet breathing comforted her. The two fluffies curled against his small body. Only the cat was still roused and angry, his tail whipping like an orange flag, he stood on his hind legs and pawed at her thigh.
The pain had eased, but, something had changed.
Violet froze in sudden comprehension; Athanor had gone. What had happened to their psychic link?
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
I may skip some weekends toward the end of June and early July since I’ll be in the UK visiting my family. If you would like a glimpse into some of my favorite British places, read this story set in Oxford and Southeast England:
