The Lasaran Countdown Begins!

Happy Friday! I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well. We're still under Stay Home Stay Safe orders here, so I've been keeping busy, preparing for the big day next week.

The Lasaran releases in four days! I'm so excited!! And nervous!! And excited!! LOL! I can't wait for you to read or listen to Taelon and Lisa's story. I really love these two together and hope you will, too.

Thank you, audiobook lovers, for making The Lasaran a #1 Audible Best Seller in Science Fiction Romance! My author copies of the audiobook (CDs) likely won't be available until after the Stay Home orders are lifted in Tantor's neck of the woods, so I admit I preordered it on Audible so I wouldn't have to wait to listen to it. πŸ˜„ Kirsten Potter is such a fantastic narrator.

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! This week, I thought I'd share a snippet of a scene in The Lasaran that takes place before Taelon and Lisa (the hero and heroine) meet face to face for the first time. In it, Taelon is speaking to Lisa telepathically.

Until Taelon had touched upon her mind, he would’ve thought there were no Earthlings worth saving. If you tell me where you are, he vowed, I will come for you once I’ve secured my own freedom.

Another moment passed. I don’t know where I am. They still won’t let me leave my room.

Then I will search for you. If his mind cleared enough for him to read the thoughts and memories of everyone here, he would use those as his guide, find the woman, free her, and seek his sister. If I manage to escape with my life, I will find you.

If I manage to escape, the woman said softly, I’ll come for you, too. I’ll free you.

Those words and the kindness they bore—a kindness he had not experienced once since he’d been captured—nearly succeeded in doing what the butchers had failed to. They nearly made him weep. It had been so long since anyone had treated him like a person rather than a creature they could maim and study. What is your name?

Lisa. What’s yours?


Stay safe and well!
