Fan the Embers

That could mean anything

Time for more Weekend Writing Warriors snippets.  We post 8-10 sentences from one of our works every weekend.

From 3/18 through the end of the year, I’m featuring my upcoming novel: Fan the Embers. Each excerpt will begin from where the previous week’s left off. By the release date in November, you’ll be able to read the full prologue and part of the first chapter.

Obviously none of that was going to sink in. Plus he wondered if the translation circuit his mother had sent the information through messed up. It kept referring to individual Figorians as “xe”. He had no idea what that was supposed to mean.

Hugh bit into a juicy apple and leaned back against the couch. He wondered if the singles on Figor would be cute or odd looking. It was difficult to tell. His mother said they were humanoid, but that could mean anything. For all he knew, they had cat ears and whiskers.

Figor 1 book cover
Part of the Figor series:
  • Fan the Embers

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.
