#WeWriWa: Unable to read her thoughts in GIB AND THE TIBBAR #PetsinSpace #scifi #romance

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who commented last week on my snippet from GIB AND THE TIBBAR! This story will be in the upcoming EMBRACE THE ROMANCE: PETS IN SPACE 2 anthology. Here’s another snippet…

Set-up: Vilarra stopped the Defenders from squishing her pet, but one of the Defenders is intrigued by her…


“So, you were eavesdropping.” Gib caught the admission and refused to back down to the angry Hemera. Not when she was so appealing to look at, even if mad. She intrigued him even more with her ability to keep her thoughts to herself. He’d never been mind blocked by anyone except the Yarwin on a first meeting, but he couldn’t catch a hint of what she thought except by observing her body language. Unusual for races who didn’t interact with Mingot on a regular basis.

“So what if I was.” She slammed her hand on her hips, her nostrils flaring. “I used to admire the Defenders, but now I know you’re all just as arrogant as our king. You know nothing about how the rest of us live.”

He can't read her mind. #WeWriWa from GIB AND THE TIBBAR #scifirom #PetsinSpace Click To Tweet

About GIB AND THE TIBBAR:
A Novella in the Galactic Defenders Series

A dedicated Defender to the core, Gib is willing to go to any planet the Galactic Alliance sends him. That is, until he’s sent with his squad to Hemera for their Alorama ceremony, far from any threat of Erebus invasion and with no chance for promotion.

Vilarra has lived on Hemera all her life, working hard in the kitchens of the royal palace until she achieved lead hand. But learning of the universe beyond her world reveals her insignificance and shreds her sense of accomplishment and purpose.

With the help of a furry, little tibbar, Gib is determined to win the affection of Vilarra, prove to her how significant she is to him and the people who depend on her. But will his personal mission be cut short before he has the chance to win her heart?

#WeWriWa: Vilarra to the rescue in GIB AND THE TIBBAR #PetsinSpace #GalacticDefenders #scifirom

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who commented last week on another snippet from GIB AND THE TIBBAR! This story will be in the upcoming EMBRACE THE ROMANCE: PETS IN SPACE 2 anthology. Here’s another snippet…

Set-up: Gib and Zair are on watch around the campfire. A fluffly, little creature ran out from the woods and Zair is scared while Gib is making fun of him. Now, you can meet the heroine for the first time… (The first line of dialogue is Zair talking to Gib – edited to fit)


“Kick it into the fire, or you could stomp on it.”

“Don’t you dare!” A Hemera woman burst from the bushes, storming toward Zair like a mother rehn protecting her young. She shoved him off his bench and shouldered past Gib before scooping the noisy creature into her hand. “This is my tibbar, not some kind of vermin.”

“Try nasty rodent that tried to eat me.” Zair smoothed out his uniform but kept his distance from the creature now perched on the woman’s shoulder.

“You’re both on nehbred.” She kicked dirt at them, her pink lips pursed and her dark eyes set in a deadly stare. “You don’t know what you’re talking about when it comes to my pet or my planet.”

#WeWriWa: It’s fluffy, not deadly in GIB AND THE TIBBAR #PetsinSpace #GalacticDefenders #scifirom

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who commented last week on another snippet from GIB AND THE TIBBAR! This story will be in the upcoming EMBRACE THE ROMANCE: PETS IN SPACE 2 anthology. Here’s another snippet…

Set-up: This follows immediately after last weekend’s.


Gib laughed and slapped his hand on his lap. “I wouldn’t call the fluffy little thing that raced by us a deadly creature.”

“Okay, Hemera is infested with vermin, then.” Zair examined the area around him before he dared put a foot on the ground.

A high-pitched squeak sounded, and Gib’s surveillance partner returned to reaching for the branches. The little creature stood on its hind legs below Zair’s bench, peeping as if telling him off.

Gib couldn’t hold in his laughter. Not just at the other Defender’s reaction, but also the thoughts running through Zair’s mind, thoughts he’d failed to block in his fear.

“It’s not going to eat you.” Gib shook his head, wondering how his squad mate could see the creature as dangerous.

It's fluffy, not deadly. #WeWriWa from GIB AND THE TIBBAR #scifirom #PetsinSpace Click To Tweet
