#8Sunday: Katrina is missing in JAGER #GalacticDefenders #scifirom #scifi #romance

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

JAGER is the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders, releases March 27. The first book in the series is on sale. Details below.

Set-up: Last week Jager told Katrina that she wouldn’t be going on the squad’s first mission. Of course, she objected. She even took her objection to the Galactic Alliance leader, but could not get out of her obligation. In this snippet, Jager is in a shuttle on his way to Earth with his squad (minus Katrina) when he receives an incoming video message. The first line is Jager’s.


“How can I help you?”

Bryce leaned forward and stared into the screen. “You can tell me where my daughter is, to start.”

Had he heard the man correctly? “What do you mean? I thought she was supposed to be on Hemera by now.”

“That’s what I thought, too.” The older Kalaren rubbed the back of his neck. “But when I went to meet her, she wasn’t there. In fact, she wasn’t on the shuttle at all.”


JAGER: Galactic Defenders Book Two

Jager’s new squad of Defenders has completed training, but the spoiled princess who has grated on his nerves since her first day of training is called back to Hemera for a yearly celebration. When Princess Katrina doesn’t show up, Jager must drag her home, where he wishes she would stay.

Katrina is a Defender, not a Princess. And there is no way she wants to return to a planet she hates for some stupid ceremony. Not when she could be out killing Erebus with her squad.

But when a new enemy threatens both their lives, they must work together to survive.

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

JAGER is the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders, releases March 27.

Set-up: Last week Jager declared how much he didn’t like Katrina and her relationship with Jace. After that, Jager learned of his squad’s first mission, but one of their members will not be going with them… (edited to fit)


“Did you hear?” Katrina raced up and slapped him on the back. “We’ve got our first mission. We’re getting sent to Earth with Zulu and Echo squad.”

Jager clenched his fists. “Yes, we are.” He turned and glared at her. “But, you’re not; Your Royal Highness is required to attend a ball on Hemera.”

Her nostrils flared. “You lie; there is no way in Gaspra I’m going to miss out on our first mission.”

Jager’s new squad of Defenders has completed training, but the spoiled princess who has grated on his nerves since her first day of training is called back to Hemera for a yearly celebration. When Princess Katrina doesn’t show up, Jager must drag her home, where he wishes she would stay.

Katrina is a Defender, not a Princess. And there is no way she wants to return to a planet she hates for some stupid ceremony. Not when she could be out killing Erebus with her squad.

#8Sunday: Fraternizing with the competition in JAGER #GalacticDefenders #scifirom #scifi #romance

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

JAGER is the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders, releases March 27. This is the second excerpt I’m sharing. You can find the first one here.

Set-up: Last week you learned training for Jager’s squad wasn’t going so well. Though Katrina definitely proved her skills. Well, the simulation is now finished, and Katrina killed all but one of the Erebus. Jager downed the other. Now, he’s trying to meet up with his squad after… (edited to fit)


Jager spotted Katrina leaning against the fence surrounding the forest, chatting with Jace, a Mingot, and a seventh-year Defender like him; his competition. They both had new squads and had to prove to the Alliance they were ready to go on missions. The new Zulu squad had already aided Echo on a humanitarian mission in the Tuey system. Probably because Katrina shared information about the drills with Jace so his team would perform better. Each drill was supposed to be different, but Jager couldn’t be sure. Katrina would do anything for the Defender who had helped saved her father when the Alliance had turned their back on him. How he wished he’d been sent instead.

No, he didn’t like Katrina. He didn’t like her fraternizing with Jace, the only Mingot he knew with hair. And he definitely didn’t like what the guy did with Katrina behind closed doors.

Jager’s new squad of Defenders has completed training, but the spoiled princess who has grated on his nerves since her first day of training is called back to Hemera for a yearly celebration. When Princess Katrina doesn’t show up, Jager must drag her home, where he wishes she would stay.

Katrina is a Defender, not a Princess. And there is no way she wants to return to a planet she hates for some stupid ceremony. Not when she could be out killing Erebus with her squad.

#8Sunday: Training in the Kalaren forests in JAGER (Galactic Defenders) #sfr #scifi #romance

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

All of my promotion is now finished for It Took a Zombie Apocalypse. Now, I am focusing on the upcoming release of JAGER. I have finished edits, and now have to format it for print and ebook. JAGER is the second book of the Galactic Defenders, a sci-fi adventure romance series.

Set-up: For those of you who read Bryce, (spoiler alert if you haven’t) you know that Katrina joined the Galactic Defenders so Bryce could retire. She is in Jager’s squad, but training isn’t going so well… (edited to fit)


As he weaved his way through the massive prickly trees whose canopy blocked out most of Kalara’s orange sun, Jager listened for his team. Erebus, with their lumbering bulky bodies, moved through the area with more grace. Dhranash squeaked with every step, and Aram sounded like a herd of rehn stampeding through the area. Jager covered his face with his hand. How many times would they have to run this drill before these lightweights learned how to cover the area properly?

A twig snapped behind him. Jager twisted around and raised his plazer, ready to shoot. Instead of their enemy ready to attack, he found Katrina, who had already downed the Erebus with just her blade.

She gave him a weak smile. “Sorry, it snapped the branch when it fell.”

Jager’s new squad of Defenders has completed training, but the spoiled princess who has grated on his nerves since her first day of training is called back to Hemera for a yearly celebration. When Princess Katrina doesn’t show up, Jager must drag her home, where he wishes she would stay.
