Such an event
It’s been awhile since I have posted for Weekend Writing Warriors, but the book I have coming out in November is one I love and figure no time like the present to let people know about it.
I’m going to give you a taste from my upcoming New Adult Sci-Fi novel Fan the Embers.
“The Earthen Prime Minister sent his agreement,” Blair said, keeping his tone modulated. He’d spent the entire night tossing and turning over the unfortunate outcome. However, he’d always known there was a possibility. Intergalactic alliances were rare and Earth could not turn away from any offered. As he was in the diplomatic corps, that left his family in the limelight as far as the picking and choosing for such an event.
“I am pleased,” the Empeer said with a smile. Sharp green eyes watched him, not missing a thing. “What troubles you about the alliance? You are new here, but I do not know how much our worlds can get along if you are already longing to leave.”
It’s 2096, Earth is relatively new to the intragalactic game, and 18-year-old Earthen Hugh MacGivens thinks he’s going to spend a few months on a distant world with his ambassador parents. Instead, he steps onto the planet to find he’s Earth’s selection for solidifying an alliance with the genderless people of Figor—by mating with a local.
Trend a’Bahn is ready for xys life to begin. Xe wants to gain an apprenticeship to a master builder and find xys mate in claiming season. Never would xe have expected an attraction to an offworlder.
While the two navigate claiming season, an undercurrent in Figor emerges. They don’t like anything non-Figorian and they hate what Hugh represents. As peaceful as Figorians are, a fire has been lit. If their beloved Empeer won’t stop such a mating from occurring, they will take care of it themselves.
Hugh came to Figor for a few months and possibly the rest of his life. If they have their say, his life ends now.
Who’s ready for November? 🙂
