Sorry I’ve been absent for a few weeks. Between the stress of online meetings and worries about COVID, I didn’t even write for a while. Now, my creativity is reviving and I’ve added a long section to my latest story Cosmic Lock. Also, the boxset of the first 3 books in this series was accepted for a BookBub featured deal at the end of this month. Good publicity and certainly inspired me to finish the story.
Here's the next snippet from Cosmic Lock

Athanor spoke the final sentence: “Now, we must squash these obnoxious invaders.”
He has teleported to the nearby town to deal with the attackers. Note, Violet can see what’s happening through a special amethyst he wears. FERIE is the entity within the volcano.
Spying through his amethyst, Violet perceived the town square with the nearest interplanetary portal. Charred timber and smashed bricks were strewn over the cobblestones. Were they remnants of the attack or the result of FERIE’s defensive blasts? Armed Space Corps troops strode through the wreckage of the houses.
Athanor stopped to speak to a Space Corps officer, “Has the mothership been located?”
“What do you mean?” the officer stared at him, assessing his questioner’s authority.
Impatient at the delay, the Grand Master emitted a puff of azure psi, “Do you have a drone in orbit?”
Startled, the man stammered, “Gr…Grand Master, we’ve been dousing the fires in the village, but, we’ve just ported in the first shuttle.” He pointed to the opposite side of the square. A shuttle rested in front of the large frame of a newly erected portal.
Grand Masters Violet and Athanor Griffin return from beyond the Cosmic Rift with two shiploads of rescued children and escaped slaves, but their enemies have not been idle in their absence. Avalon is in flames and their little son is missing. Finding him may be the easiest problem for the powerful couple. They must unite the fractious Grand Masters, stop the bloodsucking Ixioths from enslaving sentients, and seal the Rift to prevent new incursions of the vindictive Nulls. Can they overcome the challenges and secure peace for the galaxy?
I hope to release it well before the listed date.

Best reviewer’s comment: “A sassy human female and an arrogant, scaled alien spaceship Captain collide. What could possibly go wrong? Or go right?”
