SFFS: A Snippet From FRIENDS IN DEED

Welcome to another installment of Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday here on the blog. If you saw last week's snippet from "Redemption" and the previous snippet from "Lifeline" and enjoyed both, then you'll be glad to know that the Dead or Alive collection is being discounted to 99 cents for the rest of February. I was also informed that my second novel Friends in Deed is also being discounted this month over at Amazon. And in the spirit of the season, I'll offer up a snippet from that novel here. As a brief set-up, Aston long ago escaped from a Gohr prison planet. If they ever catch him again, he'll be put to death. Unfortunately, he ended up making an unscheduled stop just outside of Gohr space, and then...

I opened my eyes once again. The sound of debris against the hull had ceased, but yet we were still in normal space. “Jeanie...”

“Forward coolant injectors are not responding.” Without coolant, the hyperspeed engines would turn my ship into a ball of liquid metal.

Definitely not anything to experience firsthand.

“Wonderful!” I leaned back and stared at the beige overhead liner, then rubbed my temples. “Can anything else go wrong?”

“I’m picking up a Gohr destroyer departing orbit around the planet.”

If you enjoyed this, make sure to check out the entire first chapter, and then pick up the full novel for only 99 cents (through the end of February). Enjoy!

And as a side note, for the next several weeks I'll have sporadic internet access, so may or may not have a chance to sign up for the list properly. I do intend to keep my posts going each Saturday, and hope you'll stop on by. I'll do my best to answer all comments when I get the chance... ;-)
