Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories.
I’m posting snippets from my latest release, Cosmic Rift, Book 4 in the Grand Masters’ Galaxy.
Note, I’m visiting the UK and may be late reading your snippets.
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.
Violet and Grand Master Ravaleen have discovered the Ixioths are kidnapping the inhabitants of Ravaleen’s planet. I’m introducing another character in this snippet: Flatipus. Violet befriended the huge sea creature with tremendous psychic powers in Grand Master’s Mate. Flatipus has lived alone on the bottom of the ocean and is happy when Violet visits because she can understand its telepathic conversation. I named it Flatipus because it reminded me of the Cheshire cat – nothing but a vast smile and ambiguous remarks.

The final sentence was: Nearby, two Ixioths were intent on stoking the drive. Italics indicate telepathic communications.
“Flatipus,” Violet called, “I need your help to smash the foe.”
The huge sea creature offered, “Flatipus can rock the island.”
“No, you will hurt the innocent as well as the guilty. I wish to harness your power for a delicate operation.”
“Funnel your psi energy to me. I’ll focus our combined beam on the ship’s drive.” The tremendous power of the gigantic creature surged into her. Engorged with psi energy, Violet staggered a step backward. Gathering her amplified power into a psi weapon, she speared into the drive.
Cosmic Rift, Book 4 in the Grand Masters’ Galaxy is $2.99 until July 12th at: Amazon iBooks Kobo B&N
