Book Tour: Tethered by Pippa Jay

Tethered by Pippa Jay

Tethered by Pippa Jay

She can kill with a kiss. But can assassin Tyree also heal one man’s grief, and bring peace to a galaxy threatened by war?

For Tyree of the Su, being an assassin isn’t simply something she was trained for. It’s the sole reason for her existence. A genetically enhanced clone—one of many in Refuge—she’s about to learn her secluded lifestyle, and that of all her kind, is under threat by a race capable of neutralizing their special talents to leave them defenseless.

For Zander D’joren, being a diplomat has not only cost him his appearance, but also the love of his life. Scarred, grieving, he must nonetheless continue in his role as co-delegate to the fearsome Tier-vane or risk a conflict that could only end one way.

Now both of them need to keep each other alive and maintain a perilous deception long enough to renegotiate the treaty with the Tier-vane, or throw their people into a war that could wipe out Terrans and Inc-Su alike. But there’s more at stake than humanity, whether true or modified. Can the love growing between them save them both? Or merely hasten their destruction?

A Dash of Romance #FREE

Dash of RomanceFree eBook!

Since my flash fiction for the Starry Night’s Blog Hop was so well received I thought I’d start flash fiction anthology collection.  You can download it for free through LeanPub as an eBook here.  Available in PDF, epub, and mobi.

My plan is to add flash fictions here or there and LeanPub allows for me to update the eBook at any time.  If you get your free copy,  you will get an update when a new story has been added.  I have a kindle and it was easy for me to update the novel I’m following.  Easy peasy and enjoy!

I’m not 100% happy with the cover, might fiddle with that later.  Now, to return to edits on Stealing the Wolf Prince.  Wish me luck!

 

SFR Brigade’s 3rd annual Midsummer Blog Hop

SFRBBH2Midsummer Blog Hop

In honor of the blog hop, I attempted to write my first flash fiction.  What do you think?  (Enter the raffle below for more free stuff)

Janna stood amongst the raving fans of Star Killers waiting for the rock band to take the stage.  The hulking bodyguards stood ready to hold back the throng of women who wanted to touch the lead singer.  Even on the distant Venus Outpost, the crowds had assembled en mass to listen to him play.  She hoped she could get his attention.

She hadn’t seen Zeke since her family moved from Earth when they were children.  He promised to be her friend forever but communications eventually stopped as the years past.  It was bound to happen; they were on different planets and only ten years old.  When she found out Star Killers was headlining an interplanetary tour, she had to try to see him.  Would he even remember her?

The crowd surged forward as the musicians took the stage.  All around her, people threw up their hands and shouted, drowning out her own voice. The electric guitars screamed over the loud speakers. 

Janna stared up at Zeke as he sang, his lips brushing the microphone.  He was no longer the pudgy little boy next door.  His black t-shirt stretched over lean muscle and broad shoulders.  His eyes were the same Neptune blue and his hair a tousle of black.

She called his name but it was lost in all the noise and chaos around her.  He would never notice her this way. 

Janna listened as they played greatest hits from their albums, all the while inching toward the stairs.  The bodyguards stayed vigilant and blocked her path along with others trying to get close.  Her heart sunk as the last song concluded and the band retreated.  Try as she might, she couldn’t push past the muscle bound guard.

The next band took the stage, the crowd shifting again trying to push her in all directions.  She fought her way to the outer wall of the auditorium, fighting back her disappointment.  She looked for the exit and edged her way away from the stage.  At every step, she had to push through clumps of people.

Close to the back, a security guard opened a side door and glared at her.  Behind him an entourage pushed forward.  In his rush to get past, he shoved her to the side.  She tripped over her own feet and fell on her bottom with an umph.  The people around her finally gave her room.

“Janna?”

She looked up and Zeke stood over her, his brows raised in surprise.  He offered her a hand up and pulled her into his arms. 

“I never thought I’d see you again.”  He leaned down and kissed her, stunning her for only a moment.  She threw her arms around his neck and kissed him back.

Friends forever.

He remembered.

Progress is Never a Straight Line

Start WritingStealing the Wolf Prince: Editing Mode Activate!

So I heard from my editor and we are going to do some more content edits on Stealing the Wolf Prince.  I really like what we have done so far so I look forward to seeing how we can make it even better.

I think I will have the weekend free before I receive my edits so I have a lot planned.  I want to work on a site overhaul.  New graphics, new layout, more sparkles and fun.

I’m not going to post my book reviews here since this blog is for my own books but I’ll still write them and post to Star-Crossed Romance.  They promote sci-fi and fantasy romance.

I also have some plans for free stuff for you!  Warning: not all of it is writing.  I have other talents and you’ll get to learn all about then in the future!  They will relate to my series in a fashion but be open minded.

I hope to get some precursory edits done on Requited and I hope to release that in ebook next month.   I have a couple beta readers going over it now.  After Requited is done, I’ll slowly start to work on the next novel in the series between Stealing the Wolf Prince activities.
