Galaxy Glimpse- 8 sentence Sunday!

Hey Readers!


I'm changing gears this Sunday after a couple of weeks off from Eight Sentence Sunday. I'm happy to announce I'll be posting some snippets from new latest WIP called Across the Stars. It's a SFR or Sci-Fi Romance.

Here's the story scoop: Laina is one of the last surviving humans after earth was destroyed when the humans tried to kill the cyborgs they'd created when the cyborgs rebelled and escaped. Now the Cyborgs, with permission of the Galatic High Council have free rein to pursue the last remnants of the human race and do with them as they see fit. Rorik, a cyborg lieutenant stumbles upon Laina hiding in a ship and he captures her, thinking to get information about the whereabouts of other humans. But when the cyborg doctor on Rorik's ship runs tests on Laina, a genetic anomaly in her hand raises questions and he suddenly wonders if Laina might hold the key to the survival of the cyborg race. Can he learn to trust and love his sworn enemy if it means he might save his people?



And then she saw him, the most beautiful man she'd ever seen. Even though men weren't supposed to be beautiful, he was. Blond hair long enough to run her fingers through, blue eyes that caught hers and swallowed her whole. They were icy eyes, no emotion lingered there, nor did any trace of feeling flit across the chiseled features of his face. He wore fitted black pants that showed long, muscular legs, and a long sleeved black shirt that outlined broad shoulders and a tapered waist.
He was devastating. He was a god.

He was a cyborg.

  5. Hi Lauren, great story premise! Aliens are so much fun to write. There is no burden of proof or accuracy, you know? lol--at least that's why I like to write them. :-)

    Your description is wonderful--except I get tripped up on the word "chiseled". I get an image of an old Superman comic book. Might just be me, but I suspect the word makes the description seem a bit cliche.

    Wonderful 8 full of great imagery! :-)

  6. Thanks Teresa! I agree on the chiseled, I just wish I could think of another way to say it...sometimes one has to go with cliches if you can't think of anything else lol.
