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.
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.
Ixioth slavers have been kidnapping the people of Grand Master Ravaleen, Meilai of Marina. Violet has enlisted the help of Flatipus, a huge sea creature with psychic powers, to defeat the Ixioths.

The final sentence was: Gathering her amplified power into a psi weapon, she speared into the drive.
She raised a barricade around the roiling fuel and expelled the heat into the ocean. The ship shuddered on its base, but did not topple.
“Ease your output,” she sent to Flatipus. The excess energy withdrew, leaving her weaker and tired.
Opening her eyes, she told Ravaleen, “The ship is stranded. Let’s free the slaves.”
The Meilai drew her bow and shouted, “The stings of Artemis will destroy you!” She raced forward, shooting arrows and firing emerald rays from her blazing eyes.
