After a hiatus of several weeks due to deadlines for my day job, I’m diving back into my Sci-Fi Romance series, Taxyon Space. I’m writing the fifth book in this series, Baswin. It is on preorder for release at the end of July (if I can manage to finish it in time). This series, so far, matches human women with amphibious alien men, Warrish from the planet Rishalt. Chapters usually alternate from the perspective of the two main characters.
My snippet comes from the first chapter introducing Holly Moon, the female protagonist with a psychic talent. This may not be the final version.
In the quiet village of Hampton on the Wold at the western fringe of the Indo Eurasian Union, Holly Moon sat in her bedroom and gazed into swirling depths of her scrying mirror. The iridescent ripples vanished, leaving a transparent circle in the center of the mirror.
Tensing in anticipation, Holly bent over the mirror and focused her psychic senses on the widening circle. The vision strengthened until she distinguished her target in a tumble of rocks at base of a sheer slope. The girl’s small body was pinned in the crack between two boulders. Judging by the position of the tangled blonde hair, she lay face down and motionless.
Thirty minutes earlier, Detective Sergeant Powell had called Holly to ask her to scry for the missing girl. He had dropped off her picture and favorite teddy bear to guide the search. Her life had become more exciting since the detective had recognized her talent for finding lost objects and missing people. The Sergeant was prone to plead for her services on difficult or urgent cases in his jurisdiction.
Ten lines and I’m sure you’d like a little more:
This one looked nasty. The girl’s faded shirt almost matched the yellowed hues of the earth-encrusted boulders and her body was partially concealed in the middle of the rock pile. She would be difficult to spot from a distance. Was she dead or just unconscious? Sadness bit into Holly’s mind.
Can a psychic woman from Earth find a home among the alien Warrish?
Alien merman, Baswin Kenton Tallis, Second of his Triad, lives on Earth disguised as a human. When the Earth authorities discover the secret identity of his older brother, Bas must flee to the Warrish base in the depths of the Pacific Ocean.
Psychic sensitives, Holly Moon and her younger sister Rosie, were chosen as candidates for Warrish training as hyperspace navigators. The sisters are eager to contribute to humanity’s advance into space. But will they succeed? They must pass a series of rigorous tests and adapt to the alien neuro-implants.
Holly meets Baswin on an island in the Pacific Ocean, but their destiny lies farther away. What obstacles will block their journey to a happy reunion of the Flaming Comets Triad?
Follow the adventures of the three brothers of the Flaming Comets Triad in Baswin, Book 5 in Taxyon Space.
