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 discovered the Ixioths are stealing the inhabitants of Ravaleen’s planet.

The final sentence was: Her tone rising in fury, Ravaleen hissed, “Kill them!”
(Apologies for creative punctuation to fit into 10 sentences.)
“Wait,” Violet urged, “we must stop the spaceship. The holds are full of miserable slaves; your people snatched from your domain. If we kill the slavers, the ship’s crew will take alarm and lift off with their wretched cargo.”
“You cripple the ship; my power is inadequate for such a task.”
“I’ll try; you stall those guards.” Shutting her eyes, Violet probed inside the ship. She veered away from the steel cold minds of the Ixioths and searched for the ship’s propulsion system. If only she had Athanor’s skill at detecting metals, sensing inanimate objects was not her forte. Swinging her mental probe from the raised prow to the base of the ship, she located a pulsing source of energy. Nearby, two Ixioths were intent on stoking the drive.
