He flipped the coin and held it, not looking to see which side had won yet. “Pick. Head or tails?”
“I can’t do that,” I breathed. “I’ve never let silver rule my life and make my decisions before, I’m not going to start now.”
He held up the coin. “This is just a coin, an object. People have turned it into something it isn’t. We make it valuable, worthy. It’s junk until we deem it worth something. Everything is. So you’re not letting silver rule you, you’re letting fate decide, giving it a choice and an option when before it had none, no way to play into this scenario unless it intervened.”
I studied his face. “You really believe in all this stuff, don’t you? Fate?”
“I absolutely believe.”
The way he stared at me…
I swallowed, my tongue thick. “So it was fate for me to be a slave?”
“No,” he said so low it sounded almost like a growl, “it was fate for me to find you.”

“Are you okay now? That you’ve got your gravity in you?” I joked softly.
She lifted her head from my chest and said just as softly, shyly, like she was just realizing something herself and didn’t know what to make of it. “There is no gravity. The only thing holding me to this planet is you.”
Oh, no. I was going to kiss her.

Teaser Tues...Wednesday : THE OTHER SIDE OF GRAVITY

        “It’s Sophelia, Mum,” Maxton said. He sounded exasperated.
        “How do you know I wasn’t talking to your behind?” she spouted back and I couldn’t hold in my snort.
        She swung her gaze back to me and her lips tilted just a bit.
        Maxton chuckled, still sounding exasperated. Tired even. “Okay, Mum. You can child me all you want to.” He moved around me and leaned in to kiss her cheek. She seemed older, like she had him when she was an older lady. “I missed you,” he said low.
        “God knows I’ve missed you, boy.” She gave him the look only someone who knew everything that was at stake would give. “And now this girl has brought you back to me.” She looked at me as Maxton leaned back. “Who has saved us all.” She whistled low. “You’re batting two for three.”
        “I—” How did she even hear us? “No.”
        “I don’t know you, why they want you, or how you came to be with my son.” With? I was sure my cheeks matched perfectly with my hair. “But I can guarantee you that it’s not a mistake and it’s not an accident. Nothing ever is. Everything happens for a reason. God put you in each other’s paths.”
        God. I felt my jaw tighten. It wasn’t out of anger, I was just keeping it together. “The same God of Earth? The same God my mother used to pray over food to?”
        She smiled a little, but it was barely enough to be called that. “I’m sure it is, Sophelia. Now, let’s get you some clothes that…fit, shall we?” I tried not to take offense at her tone and the obvious implication. “And then we can sit on down for some supper.”
        I looked down at myself. “Um.”
        Maxton coughed and turned to face me slightly. “Ex-nay on the argue-ay.” He coughed again.
        I smiled despite it all. “Oh, you all of sudden speak Latin? We could have been speaking in code this whole time?”
        “I’ll remember to break it out the next time we need it.” I saw his chest shake with a silent laugh as he winked before turning back to his mother.

“But I’m really trying here, Sophelia.” Oh, God, thank you for his voice, the way he said my name like that. It was even better when he just said… “Soph…” he said softly, “come on, if I’ve done something to make you feel uncomfortable or like you don’t want to be around me, then just spill it, because that’s the last thing I want to—” I licked my lips, unable to take his apologizing. When his eyes shot to watch my tongue sweep across my bottom lip, I was done. I reached up on my tiptoes, my fists each gripping their share of his shirt for support, and tugged him down..............

Best wishes  and happy endings,

It's here!


 I can't wait for you to have Maxton and Sophelia in your hands! I have really missed science fiction. I don't have a release date as of yet, but as soon as I do, I'll pass it along. I'm about two-thirds of the way done with the book!! So close! So stay tuned to my social media pages for teasers and updates.

"Your soul, on this soulless planet, sticks out like one star in a starless sky. And it’s beautiful."

Here's a little taste:

The tap on my shoulder made me turn slowly. My shirt was way too big on her, but she was tucking it into her tight black pants. They were men’s pants, probably her proprietor’s discards, but wow if she didn’t make them look incredible right then.
“This’ll work. Thank you, Maxton.”
My eyebrows lifted. “You got some mind powers I don’t know about?”
She gave me a funny look, but added a small smile. That smile… Holy. Wow. “You gave me your shirt. Unless you’re also a slave, you have your own clothes.”
I absentmindedly reached back to rub the tag with my name in it on my shirt. “That’s right. Sorry. And what’s your name?”
“You want to know my name?” she barely whispered.
I grinned. “It’s only fair.”
She took a breath, looking at my mouth for a moment. I wondered the last time that anyone had smiled at her.
“Sophelia.” She laughed once, but it was more of sadness than anything funny. “I haven’t said my name in years.”
That rocked me to my core. “What did your proprietor call you?” And I immediately regretted that question.
She smiled, but again it was the opposite of her actual emotion. “You don’t want to know.”
I gulped, knowing I needed to get away from her.
Right now.
“Hey, I’m sure you’re tired. Why don’t you take a nap or something while I go get my work done? When you wake up, we’ll be there.”
        She must have noticed the off change in my tone, but just looked at me before going to my bed. “Okay.” She laid down, facing the wall, and sighed so deeply. “A bed,” I heard her mutter. “Wow, I’d forgotten.”
I left without another word.
I leaned against the wall outside my room, the back of my head to the wall, and stayed there for a minute. A couple of Havard’s regulars walked by, but I said nothing to them. He always had workers here and there, but I was his right hand and everybody knew it.
I went up to the top floor, pressed my thumb to the scanner, and went inside. Havard used the old technologies. He said it was cheap and gave the illusion of safety. If someone was dumb enough to crack through his security, then they’d meet their maker sooner rather than later for being that dumb.
“Havard!” I called.
“Get in here, boy. Maybe we want to postpone our shipment for a day.”
“What?” I said, the shock evident in my voice. There was no reason I could think of that Havard would make his shipments late. None. Except silver.
“A slave escaped.”
I schooled my face. I was good at that. I crossed my arms. “So. Slaves escape sometimes. Who cares?”
“Someone apparently. This slave is worth a pretty silver.” He flipped the screen hanging over his desk around so I could see it. There she was. The redheaded beauty. And next to her face was a number I never thought I’d see in my lifetime.”
I gulped. “Why is she worth so much?”
“Why does it matter? I bet if we stayed a night longer, was a little late on our shipments, we could find her. I’ll split the finder’s fee with you.”
That silver…would change my life, would change so much for me. Could I really let one conversation with this girl take away everything I’ve worked my whole life for?
I steeled my back and face, thought about the one girl who did mean something to me back home. This girl on this ship meant nothing to me, but that girl back home was my life.
She’d done everything for me. I barely knew her anymore because I’d been gone so long, but she was everything and I needed this money to save her. I remembered that as I uttered my next word and condemned the girl in my room to hell.
“Funny this should pop up on your screen, Havard.” I grinned my best evil grin. “I was just coming to find you.”
He grinned back, not knowing why, but knowing he was about to make some silver. “Why was that?”
“The girl?” I nodded toward the picture. “She stowed away in the ship.” I leaned in with my knuckles on his desk. “She’s in my room, right now.”
“You’re joking,” he barked.
“About silver? Never.”
        He leaned back and smiled before jumping up from his seat. “Let’s go, crook.”

And....here it is!
Done by the amazing Cover Lure

My name is Maxton and I’m a trader.

I live on a soulless planet where gravity, oxygen, and everything else are sold to the highest bidder on the black market. People are sold on the black market, too. You have to work really hard not to become one of those people. Pay your taxes, keep your friends and family close, and more than anything else—don’t get caught by the Militia. But all the rules changed for me the day I found her.

My name is Sophelia and I’m a stowaway.

I’ve been a slave for almost as long as I can remember. Waiting for the one day, one second, for my proprietor to turn his head so I could run and never look back. Now I'm on the run. And on a planet where no one is on your side and people would turn you in for a good meal or a piece of a silver, being on the run on Landu is the last place you want to be. Until he found me.

I won't survive without him.

I can't breathe without her.
