Favorite Quote Friday—Aldebarian Alliance News

Happy Friday! It's been quite a while since my last post. If you're a member of my Street Team or Books Group then you already know this, but I've been spending less time online while I worked furiously to meet a deadline. As a result, I have great news...

I finished The Segonian, Aldebarian Alliance Book 2. Woohoo!! I not only finished it, I finished reading back through it several times and polishing it as per my usual process and have handed it over to my editor. Double Woohoo!!

I had so much fun writing this book. Eliana made me laugh out loud quite a few times. And the crew of the Segonian battleship Ranasura reminds me a lot of my Immortal Guardians. So they made me laugh a lot, too. I hope they'll make you laugh as well.

My cover artist is already working her magic. She sent me a preliminary draft and WOW. It is freaking AWESOME!!! I can't wait to share the finished cover with you. Tantor Audio is scheduling Kirsten Potter to narrate the audiobook. And with so many wheels set into motion, I should have a release date for you very soon. I'm so excited!!!

Thank you for your patience and your interest in this book. I think I've received more emails and inquiries about The Segonian than I have about any other book. I'm so glad you liked the preview I included in The Lasaran and Broken Dawn. 😊

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Since I've been immersed in Eliana's story, I thought I would share a quote from The Lasaran that features her. In it, she's conversing with Taelon and Lisa, the hero and heroine:


Smiling, Eliana straightened. “Prince Taelon, are there any rules that would prevent a Yona soldier from sparring with me?”


His eyebrows rose. “Technically speaking, you aren’t Lasaran, so there are no rules governing interactions with you specifically. Has a Yona offended you in some way?”


“Only when he didn’t laugh at my jokes.”


Lisa grinned. “They don’t feel emotion.” At least Taelon insisted they didn’t. She still wasn’t so sure.


Eliana smiled wryly. “I know. That’s what everyone keeps telling me. But I could’ve sworn I saw a teeny tiny spark of mirth in Ari’k’s eyes the last time I tried to make him laugh. I was kinda hoping I could get him to spar with me so I can see if that evokes any emotion.”


Taelon shrugged. “It won’t. But you’re welcome to engage him if he is willing.”


Eliana thrust a triumphant fist in the air. “Yes! Woohoo!That big-ass warrior is going down, baby! If I can’t make him laugh, I can sure as hell piss him off.” 

Taelon and Lisa burst into laughter.


I hope you and your family and friends are staying safe and well.

Have a wonderful weekend!
