SFFS: Another Excerpt from HEROES DIE YOUNG

Neck-deep into new material and edits galore, it was a bit of a trick to find a snippet for this week's Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. So, for this week, I'm going to reach back into the past a bit, and get another excerpt from my first published novel, Heroes Die Young.  Here's a snippet, this one a little bit racier, between Aston and his best friend's (adult, for those wondering) daughter:

Her assault on my senses continued as she combed her fingers through my hair, and our mouths pressed against one another.

As she reached down to my pants, my conscience slapped me upside the head and I grabbed her arm. “I can’t.”

“Why not?”

“I’m sorry, I just can’t.”

She pulled away and folded her arms across her chest. Her cheeks were flushed and her eyes drooped. “Please leave.”

“If the circumstances were different, Juniper, I…”

Her eyes burned through me. “Leave!”

Poor Aston can never catch a break...

If you enjoyed this, click the link to HDY up there, and check out the whole first chapter. And of course, what really gets me motivated toward putting out Aston's latest adventures is to see the book being sold and enjoyed. Pick up a copy! You'll be glad you did...

  4. What happened before was a bit exciting too...but may have run afoul of the rules (plus, would have gone over the ten sentences :-P )...

  5. Lot's of contributors this week (not many posts). : (

    Oh, and your 'word verification' is making me type naughty things again.

  6. Shhh...I'll never tell. ;-)

    Apparently, word verification knew where Aston's mind was headed, and adjusted accordingly.

  8. Definitely! One of these days, I think he's going to have to look for trouble and somehow not find it. That would be quite the twist...

    Thanks, everyone, for stopping by!

  9. Shhhh, don't tell anyone. He doesn't like to admit it, but when push comes to shove, they usually come out to play.

  10. If there's anything Aston has a lot of, it's sexual tension. Ask anyone... ;-)

    Thanks for stopping by, all!

  14. Yeah, Diana, it *is* a little bizarre...but as Diane mentioned, it *is* his best friend's daughter, which may not stop a lot of guys, but you'd have to read the book to see her father... ;-)
