Jenny was stranded, but she wasn't alone. #alien #99c #offer #scifi

Imprisoned for brutal crimes against his wardens, Fly became an unwilling experiment and was transported, with other criminals, to a hostile planet. Full of mutiny, anger and a desire for revenge the experiment was never going to be successful and Fly became the only survivor when the craft crashed.

Then the human ship arrived -- and Jenny.


With a malfunctioning spacecraft she was in for a fight for her life, but her problems were only just beginning when her crewmates abandon her on Eden.


Jenny's on her own... or so she thinks.
 Eden
only 99c / 77p
 



Eden is a stand-alone novel and it tells the story of Fly and Jenny's developing relationship. It’s a story of survival, acceptance and love, of changing perspective and a need for companionship.

It's a story told from both Jenny and Fly's viewpoints which will bring you a gritty reality in Jenny's human fragilities and sci-fi from Fly's very different culture.

Eden isn’t just a sci-fi romance, it's a story of survival and acceptance. 
Check out the the reviews!

For one week only Eden is reduced to 99c (and in other country’s respectively.)

A slice of Eden to whet your appetite:

The water droplets from the waterfall sparkled against the clouds, making the lower part of the sky almost seem effervescent.
  ‘Wow,’ she said moving forward for a better look.
  Shock caused her to stop.
  Below, standing on rocks beneath the gushing waterfall was the alien.
  He was naked.
  His back was towards her, and his long line of body was taut with muscle. He was washing his hair; tossing the long mane over his shoulder.
  He raised his hands up towards the pounding water and shouted something—it was the same noise she’d heard before. It was a shout of exhilaration.
  He turned, his head rearing up as if feeling her scrutiny.
  They stared at one another until the alien raised a hand and beckoned her to join him.
  Jenny turned and ran back to the buggy.
  Inside, she clutched the wheel with both hands, her heart pounding with the same ferocity as the waterfall.
  ‘Shit,’ she said. ‘Shit, shit, shit.’
  As she sat, her heart rate stabilising, the earlier thought came back to her. It could work. The alien had an opportunity to kill her not once but several times now, and hadn’t.
  That meant he didn’t see her as a threat.
  She pictured him under the waterfall and the way he beckoned her to join him. He’d been mocking her.
  That meant he had rational thought.
  Really, Jenny? You sure about that?
  She pushed her scathing views away. The idea, although dangerous, was her only hope and could work—if the alien had a balanced mind.

Characters in books want their voices heard! @JaimieHope




Modern Life
by
Sara Rhea

The Road that Leads to Home
Worldwind Virtual Book Tours

Having been born in the later 1970’s I consider myself a modern woman. However, just because I wasn’t born in my grandparent’s era doesn’t mean I haven’t seen the world change. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth.
The very first historic event that comes to mind is when The Challenger exploded in 1986. For those unfamiliar with the event, The Challenger was a space shuttle, the first one to carry a teacher into outer space. The launch had been postponed several times before, so I was excited when I found out it was actually going to lift off on January 28th. I happened to be home that day and recall rushing to the television set as I heard the final countdown begin. That excitement faded quickly when I realized what had happened. Not only did that day change the way future launches were handled, it changed my life path as well. Up to that day I had dreams of being an astronaut. After that day, I changed my mind. I still had an interest in outer space, but decided to look at it from the safety of planet Earth.
There have also been other events as well. I have seen positive changes like the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of communism. I have also seen the negative changes that the modern times have brought upon us. By that I mean things like holes in the ozone and increased terrorist activity. As I typed that last sentence I wondered if any of you scoffed at it. It’s hard to argue about an increase in terrorist activity, but it seems like everyone is ready to throw down when it comes to issues of the environment. The issue of environmental preservation has become political.
Some of the biggest changes within my lifetime have been in politics. History was made seven years ago when Barrack Obama was elected president. As historic as it was for a black man to be elected to the highest office in the United States, the 2008 election was important for another reason as well. It showed a shift in America’s thinking, How so you ask? The top two Democratic candidates battling for nomination were far different than the usual Anglo-Saxon, older, male candidate Americans were used to. Not only was there an African American candidate, there was also a woman.
With the 2016 elections looming, candidates are beginning to throw their hats in the ring. Among  the men stands one woman, Hilary Clinton. She last ran against Barrack Obama in 2008. I fully backed her then and I full back her now, much to the chagrin of many friends and family members.
I respect their opinions when they declare their desire to withhold judgement on any candidate until each candidate’s platform is clearly defined. That makes a lot of sense actually. What bothers me are the people who won’t vote for her just because of her gender. Believe it or not, that attitude isn’t just voiced by men I know, I have also heard it from some women. I have to tell you, this makes me shake my head and wonder what kind of future this country has. When I look at it from that perspective, thinking about your question of what modern life is like for me, I feel like we’re now going backwards. It may as well be the 1800’s, back when the inn opened. Luckily for me and Becca there’s at least electricity.
