Patsy's Amazing Author Blog Tour

Welcome to my portion of the Amazing Author’s Blog Event.  A group of author friends are sharing our stories and at the end of the event, a nice prize package awaits.  Keep track and be ready to answer some easy questions which will appear at Ginger Simpson’s blog as the last contributor. A great way to get some new reading material.

My short story, Will o’ the Wisp, is my contribution to the winning package.

Blurb:

Stalked across the vast reaches of the universe, Tannis, the last fecund female of the clan Light Bringers, takes refuge on Earth, veiling herself within the dying form of a human female. Her energy forces are flagging and to rejuvenate, she must seek the healing properties of the sun’s rays, but by doing so, she risks discovery by the hunter. Time is short and Kadin—the most feared assassin of all—draws near!

Excerpt:

The hunt had led him to this place. A primitive planet on the outskirts of a distant galaxy. He’d arrived ahead of the pack, confident his subtle pointers would lead the others in the wrong direction. Convinced he’d caught up with Tannis at last, he’d come upon her at the moment she’d entered the host body, seeking to mask her presence. Such was the act of desperation, born of her inexperience and misguided information. Her energies pulsed bright and compelling, far too tangible to hide in the husk of the former occupant.
His lips curved in a self-deprecating smile. He could heal the female body with a simple touch. The shell’s hold on life was tenuous but if Tannis flew, the hunt would commence again. He grew tired of the hunt, tired of the unending frustrations. Now he wanted closure, craved an ending. But until he caught her, it was not to be.

He glanced down. A single human male also watched the vehicle’s progress. When the transport disappeared from his line of sight, the human turned, starting up an overgrown pathway into a wooded area.  Kadin touched on the human’s mind, taking in information at light speed.

Ginger Simpson said...

Hello from a waiting room in a car repair in Fort Smith, AR. The trip is a bust so far, but at least I have wifi and could stop by and enjoy your post. I updated your blog addy for the final day with a direct link, and I'm sure the readers are going to love this one. I did. Now I have to read it...darn...my kindle just keeps getting fatter and fatter...Sort of like my butt. :)

LOL Ginger - the hazards of maturity!

What a compelling excerpt! I'm hoping Kadin is the good guy. Your site is very dramatic and appealing.

Lovely site. What an imagination you have, Patsy. Very interesting excerpt. I meant to make it over here yesterday but was too bombed on cold meds to function.

P.L. Parker said...

Had the same problem last week, Beth. Stuff hangs on too!

Isabella Macotte said...

Love the story and the fabulous covers.
