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 is in the EMBRACE THE ROMANCE: PETS IN SPACE 2 anthology, a USA Today Bestseller. Here’s another snippet from this story…
Set-up: Last week, Vilarra and Gib shared their first kiss. Many of you wondered whether there would be another. Well, the next morning there is a Defender outside the kitchen, but it’s Gib’s partner instead. (edited to fit) Enjoy…
“Please help,” he groaned.
She walked closer but remained out of his reach. “What do you need?”
“A new head, to start.” He massaged his temples then squinted up at her. “Hey, I know you.”
“Yes, how can I help you?” She didn’t have time to play games with the Defender.
“Gib, call Gib, I need him to get me back to the barracks.” The Defender turned his head to the side and vomited.The morning hangover. #WeWriWa from GIB AND THE TIBBAR #scifirom #romance #books 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?
