How far would you go to survive?

Excerpt from the book EDEN

She started, her eyes flaring wide. The noise she heard echoed up the corridor. With her nerve failing, she jumped to her feet, allowing the broken appliance to fall to the floor. She could already hear heavy footsteps pounding up the corridor as she dashed across to the lobby.

At the exit, she slipped in a puddle of animal blood and fell, sprawling, to the ground. She began to scramble out of the doorway on her stomach, but her ankles were seized and she was whipped backwards at speed.

She was abruptly released, but the momentum caused her to roll until she hit the opposite wall. She lowered her hands, which had instinctively risen to shield her head against the impact, and peered fearfully at her attacker.

His feet, bare and soiled, were planted wide apart, and his naked chest was rising and falling rapidly. He threw something and she covered her head again. The crushed bottle caught her on the back of the hand. She stifled a shocked cry, and peered through her fingers at the alien, her stomach rolling and twisting like waves.

He reeled off a string of words, and she flinched at the tone. He bent towards her and she tried to hide within the wall, but she was lifted by the front of her suit and hung, like a ragdoll, from his hands. Her chin began to tremble.

She was deflated; all fight had fled her body.

‘I’m sorry.’ Tears fell in an endless rush. ‘I thought you’d gone. I thought you were on Taurus. Th-that’s w-why I drank it.’

She was shaken roughly, her head rocking on her shoulders, and then dropped. The instant she hit the floor she curled into the foetal position, with her arms covering her head.

Her senses were acute to sound, and her brain nagged her to flee, but she remained motionless. The old, old trick: play dead. It was miraculous how prehistoric instincts had quickly reasserted their position in her life.

Finally, the bare feet walked away. But she remained in a curled ball, the dismembered animal her neighbour, and wondered if the quality of her life would be worth the struggle to survive.

 

Jenny was stranded, but she wasn’t alone. #alien #99c #offer #scifi

Imprisoned for brutal crimes against his wardens, Fly became an
unwilling experiment and was transported, with other criminals, to a
hostile planet. Full of mutiny, anger and a desire for revenge the
experiment was never going to be successful and Fly became the only
survivor when the craft crashed.



Then the human ship arrived — and Jenny.



With a malfunctioning spacecraft she was in for a fight for her
life, but her problems were only just beginning when her crewmates
abandon her on Eden.



Jenny’s on her own… or so she thinks.

A slice of Eden to whet your appetite:
The water droplets from the
waterfall sparkled against the clouds, making the lower part of the sky almost
seem effervescent.
  ‘Wow,’ she said moving forward
for a better look.
  Shock caused her to stop.
  Below, standing on rocks
beneath the gushing waterfall was the alien.
  He was naked.
  His back was towards her, and
his long line of body was taut with muscle. He was washing his hair; tossing
the long mane over his shoulder.
  He raised his hands up towards
the pounding water and shouted something—it was the same noise she’d heard
before. It was a shout of exhilaration.
  He turned, his head rearing up
as if feeling her scrutiny.
  They stared at one another
until the alien raised a hand and beckoned her to join him.
  Jenny turned and ran back to
the buggy.
  Inside, she clutched the wheel
with both hands, her heart pounding with the same ferocity as the waterfall.
  ‘Shit,’ she said. ‘Shit, shit,
shit.’
  As she sat, her heart rate
stabilising, the earlier thought came back to her. It could work. The alien had an opportunity to kill her not once but
several times now, and hadn’t.
  That meant he didn’t see her as
a threat.
  She pictured him under the
waterfall and the way he beckoned her to join him. He’d been mocking her.
  That meant he had rational
thought.
  Really, Jenny?
You sure about that?
  She pushed her scathing views
away. The idea, although dangerous, was her only hope and could work—if the alien had a balanced mind.

Five Facts about Renegades

Picture



by
S.A. Mason

1. Renegades was actually inspired by the television show Firefly. The short-lived show was much different than other science fiction shows; it really broadened my traditional notions of science fiction and helped me think outside of the box to just combine the things I was interested in. I had always heard the advice to write the book you’d want to read, and Firefly really helped me do that. I wouldn’t call Renegades fanfiction because it takes place in a whole different universe with new characters, but the Firefly inspiration is definitely noticeable, if you’ve seen the show. (If you haven’t seen it, you should watch it immediately.)

2. I spent almost four months doing world creation and developing the characters before I even made an outline. I wanted to know every detail of the world and people I would be writing about. Once the outline was done, I wrote 1,000-1,500 words a day and finished the first draft in two months. Renegades wasn’t published until almost a year after that because I couldn’t stop editing.

3. I had originally named the protagonist Elena, but as I was doing my character development, I read the 50 Shades of Grey series, and one of the characters was named Elena, so I changed her name to Elora. Not only did I not like Elena’s character in 50 Shades of Grey, but since that series was so popular, I didn’t want any kind of association with it. In the end, I’m glad I went with Elora. It’s not a very common name, but still pronounceable, which was what I aimed for with all the character’s names.

4. Nigel is my least favorite character. I find him to be very needy, annoying, and immature. But I think his character is necessary for the book to unfold how I wanted it to. His skill set is obviously necessary, but for him to stick with Elora through everything, I felt like he had to be in love with her. His level of dedication had to be more than friendship.

5. I decided to forgo the traditional publishing route and self-publish Renegades mostly because I’m impatient. Querying agents and securing a publisher can take years, and I wanted my book available as soon as possible (and my mom wouldn’t quit asking me when she could read it). The actual writing, editing, and publishing part of self-publishing wasn’t as hard and time-consuming as I thought it would be. Marketing, on the other hand, takes up more time than expected.

Introducing…

Elora Pertin spent her life trying to please her father, an esteemed General for the Empire.

When he convinced her to leave her quiet life as a scientist to advance a secret project for the Emperor, she had no idea what she was getting into. The seemingly innocent projects she engineered were actually being used to develop a genocidal weapon. After uncovering the Emperor’s plot, Elora had no choice but to act.
Elora finds herself fighting for her life against the Empire she once served, abandoning everything with only a handful of friends and an unlikely ally—the Emperor’s deadliest assassin. Will he prove himself true as her protector, a loyal servant of the Empire, or a romantic distraction? With the law and assassins searching the star system for them, Elora and her team are determined to accomplish their mission . . . or die trying.

Book in the spotlight: Angels Don’t Fall in Love

by 
Branden Szabo
He’s a passive college boy, she’s an aggressive soldier girl.

Only the smartest and most talented young women can join the Seraphim Corps, an organization created to monitor Earth’s contact with extraterrestrial species. James Walker is a teenage congressional staffer who is lucky enough to see this special force in action at Haywood Naval Air Base. Until a series of suspicious meteorites crash nearby. Now James finds himself fighting for survival in a base overrun with hellish monsters that even the Seraphim Corps can’t control. 

Sci-fi/horror novella
Amazon.com
James is just a staffer, handicapped by a lack of courage and faith in his
abilities. Thankfully, he befriends Armina Harp, a young and fiery member of
the Seraphim Corps. Armina detests James for being what she calls a push-over,
picking on him whenever she can. And likewise James finds Armina’s excessive
zeal very unattractive. If only she weren’t so attractive on the outside.

Haywood is under quarantine until the monsters can be exterminated. And for
reasons unknown to James, the women of the Seraphim Corps aren’t allowed to
leave. As their story grows darker, James and Armina’s mutual dislike for each
other begins to evolve into something much different – Love.
