The rest was a dream #mfrwhooks

I’m continuing with snippets from Love thy Galactic Enemy, my September 9 SFR release — all of them featuring that beloved alien pet, the rat-like mizzet. Lou, our heroine, is taking care of Finn, an ill enemy in a tiny flophouse room on Farflung Space Station, where she is trapped. She has also picked up […]

The girl with kaleidoscope eyes #mfrwhooks

The title of this post is a bit misleading, but I couldn’t help referencing Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band. If you don’t know what song I’m talking about, check out Monday’s blog post. Hint: It’s about kaleidoscope eyes. In this snippet from Love thy Galactic Enemy, my September 9 SFR release, it isn’t a […]

It’s just you and me, Brainless #mfrwhooks

Another hook from Love thy Galactic Enemy, my September 9 SFR release. I’m still focusing on the alien pet — a mizzet. Such was the luxury afforded to the Farflung equivalent of a flophouse—luxury Lou could afford for only three more nights, assuming she lost her appetite. If her secret contact didn’t show up soon, […]

More about mizzets #mfrwhooks

Last week I showed you the cover for Love thy Galactic Enemy, my September SFR release. Now I’m focusing on an alien pet — a mizzet. As dumb creatures went, mizzets were very dumb — but empathetic to human emotions, so surely this one sensed it wasn’t welcome. Although its tiny legs were capable of […]

Alien pets get underfoot, too #mfrwhooks

Last week I showed you the cover for Love thy Galactic Enemy, my September SFR release. Today I’m going to focus on an element that (I hope) adds human interest. Namely, an alien pet. My heroine is trapped on a city-sized enemy space station. She’s trying to avoid being noticed when she finds a small creature […]

A cover reveal #mfrwhooks

What is the #1 hook that can loosen readers’ purse strings? The cover. So without further ado, here is the cover for Love thy Galactic Enemy, my September SFR release. Before you go, let’s talk cover reveals. I’ve frankly never found paying for a cover reveal to be worthwhile. Have you? How do you handle […]

Indecent breezes #mfrwhooks

Time for another hook from Rescuing Prince Charming, a near-future sci fi romance. Dusty Johnson, a mild-mannered tech writer and an alien Kwadran guard have discovered a ticking time bomb hidden in an unfinished starship prototype. After a wild fifteen minutes, they throw the bomb from a terrace into the ocean, barely in time. Then, […]
