Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories.
I’m sorry I did not read all the snippets last weekend. My twitter account was locked and I’ve created another one, although without >9000 followers.
I’m posting snippets from my latest novel set on Jupiter’s moon, Europa. I’ve called it a SciFi thriller and romance. The book releases on November 14th.
Tag line: What alien creatures lurk under the ice crust of Europa?
After Nikki’s lifepod crashed on Europa, she tumbled into a hole in the ice and saw a stranger’s face in the water below. He pulled her into the ocean under the surface ice.

I’ve skipped to a section near the end of the chapter. Kiron has towed Nikki under the surface ice sheet to the Earther Station. Note, Galileo Station is constructed in two sections: Upper Station (Topside) within the ice sheet on the surface of Europa, and Lower Station (Bathos) about a mile below on a plateau at the sea bottom.
At the rippling surface of the ocean, he ducked into the concealment of a shallow groove in the ice sheet. He narrowed his eyes to peer at the torus of the upper station. Detecting no activity in the water near the borehole, he placed the limp body of the Earther just under the ice. Aiming carefully, he propelled her toward the borehole with its framework of cables. The space-suited body rotated in the water, drifted into the tunnel and rose toward the upper section of their station.
Kiron backed away slowly to elude the motion sensors. When he had retreated into the swaying branches of stingers, he halted and gave a grim smile. Their detectors would register the spinning spacesuit, and someone would come to investigate.
You can read the first two chapters in your choice of format HERE.
The book is available for Pre-order for only 99c
Amazon US: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0764DFSDM/

My science fiction story, A Tale of Two Colonies, is discounted to 99c this month. The giant alien spiders make it fit for a Halloween read.
Fight for freedom. Fight to survive - For refugees from an overcrowded Earth, dreams of a better life on an alien planet transform into a terrifying battle for survival.
As always, I’ll be happy to reply to your comments.

Interesting snippet whit great descriptions. I like the set up of the station. Intriguing.ReplyDelete
Thanks - I had to create a two level station as well as two alien societies.Delete
Sounds like a good plan, but I wonder if it will go as he hopes. Intriguing!ReplyDelete
Some of his plan works.Delete
Apparently, he doesn’t want them to know he’s there, but he’s willing to take some risks to get her to safety.ReplyDelete
Actually, that is a major problem - he is watching in secret.Delete
Crafty move on his part. They're going to be wondering how she got there, though.ReplyDelete
They do, but she can't tell them since she was unconscious while he transported her.Delete
Clever!! I'm looking forward to seeing where this is going. Love the world you're setting up here, Aurora!ReplyDelete
Thank you. In some ways it's two stories from the different perspectives.Delete
Well done on his part! I'm so eager to read this...great excerpt. So sorry to hear about the twitter snafu. Wow!ReplyDelete
Thanks. I'm back in my old twitter account as of yesterday.Delete
Good thinking on his part! :DReplyDelete
He'll have to keep his wits for the turmoil to come.Delete
I need to know what happens next! Great snippet.ReplyDelete
Good. The book releases in two weeks.Delete
I'm really enjoying this, and the snippet leaves me wondering - I doubt he's going to forget her in a hurry! Just followed you on Twitter!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the follow. Neither of them will forget.Delete
That's a smart move on his part.ReplyDelete
Yes, he has bright ideas on occasion.Delete
I love how he figures out how to get help without revealing himself.ReplyDelete
He's been hiding for years and spying on the station.Delete
He's certainly a hero -- and he certainly knows a lot about how the station operates.ReplyDelete
You're right on both counts. An abused hero, as will become clear later.Delete
