Like a cork in a champagne bottle #mfrwhooks

Time for another hook from Rescuing Prince Charming, a near-future science fiction romance. Last week we met the heroine of the piece, Dusty Johnson, as she searched alone for a time bomb hidden in the mechanical deck of an unfinished starship prototype. She is a meek technical writer who believes in the starship project so […]

A creature from the distant past #mfrwhooks

Today, another hook from Constellation XXI., my sci-fi romance releasing on Valentines Day. Sienna Dukelsky is a starship pilot on her first solo flight when all power, lights, and mechanical systems on her ship suddenly, inexplicably die. She’d spent the last three years memorizing procedures for troubleshooting every component of this ship. All the procedures […]

Visit this fictional world

So far, the hooks I’ve shared for my upcoming release, Constellation XXI, have included, a cover, a blurb, and the opening paragraphs. Today, something totally different. For each of my books I create a “travel poster” inviting readers to enter my fictional world. The posters become part of my marketing materials. The travel poster for […]

Love was just a cruel ghost — #mfrwhooks

Last week I showed you the cover and blurb for my upcoming science fiction romance, Constellation XXI. Today you get the opening of the book. She didn’t do it. Couldn’t have. There was simply no way. Everything about it was impossible. Nonetheless, guilt slammed Captain Sienna Dukelsky as hard as if she’d rammed her beloved […]

From somewhere under her long skirt . . . #MFRWhooks

More today from The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station, a science fiction romance that’s among my personal favorites because of the heroine. Sandrina is far and away the best character I’ve created — best in the sense of morality, goal in life, and good intentions. But she also has a less-than-perfect side. Here she’s a Peeping […]

Dusting off her palms with a theatrical flourish #mfrwhooks

More today from The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station, a science fiction romance that’s among my personal favorites because of the heroine. Sandrina is far and away the best character I’ve created — best in the sense of morality, goal in life, and good intentions, even though she’s mute and an outcast. She also has a […]

Impossible to make this woman a heroine? #mfrwhooks

More today from The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station, a science fiction romance that’s among my personal favorites because of the heroine. She’s far and away the best character I’ve created — best in the sense of morality, goal in life, and good intentions, even though she’s mute and an outcast. This passage describes how she uses […]

Nobody bumped into Duke Dukelsky. No one. #mfrwhooks

My sci fi romance, Alien Contact for Runaway Moms, has escaped into the wide world, so I’m going to switch manuscripts. Today’s hook is from The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station, a sci fi romance set in the far future. I recently got the rights back to it, so I’ll be re-releasing it in a […]

No sex, understand? #mfrwhooks

I hope the title of today’s hook doesn’t disappoint you too much. It’s the heroine’s initial response to the hero, not a commentary on the book’s supposed chastity. My sci fi romance, Alien Contact for Runaway Moms, is escaping into the big, wide world in just a few days. This Saturday, in fact! Audra Verhailey, twenty-three […]

Tall, Dark and Intimidating #mfrwhooks

My sci fi romance, Alien Contact for Runaway Moms, has two main threads, each with its own romance. So far, the hooks shared on this blog hop have highlighted the thread involving the search for the runaway mother. Today’s hook switches to the runaway’s thread. Audra Verhailey, twenty-three years old, has accepted the help of […]
