My short story, Bird Whisperer, is now published.
As a five year old failed psychic experiment, Trish was moved from the Keeper Complex to a western slopes human village. But as a teenager, when she accidentally reads the thoughts of the village bully and defends her only friend, the villagers force her out of the village.
Now all she has to do is survive alone in her cave until the next Keeper visit, so she can report the villagers and stop their extra benefits for raising her, when they are not doing so.
This Science Fiction short story, Bird Whisperer, is based on Mannuholm, the same world as Diane J Cornwell’s Broken Series.
When Pilot Cambrie Jarvis is rescued from an escape pod, she hides what little knowledge she has of the explosion on S. S. Desert Run. All she wants is to pilot space ships and stop dreaming.
She takes a job as cook on outbound mining freighter S. S. Disco Dancer to evade questions over the space ship explosion and how she survived.
After dreaming of danger to her new ship and crew, she again must decide whether to leave herself open to ridicule and testing by explaining her dream warnings, or remain silent and again hide in an escape pod until the coming accident happens, because if she dreamed it, it will happen.
I uploaded Galaxy Freight 3 on Smashwords and Amazon without any fanfare. If you wish to read the blurb for Harry’s Detour, click the cover image in the right hand column.
As soon as it has been approved for the premium list, Smashwords will forward to all the other sites, but until then, you may download the sample from Smashwords in the format you require.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
I completed and uploaded the first two novelettes in a new series, called Galaxy Freight.
Captain Alana Black owns a freighting company called Galaxy Freight and pilots her space ship between earth and colonized planets at the edge of settled space.
She has an android to help called Sam, and an artificial intelligence program called Ship.
