If you'd to share your own 8-10 sentence snippet, whether published or not, follow the link and sign up. It's a great community to be a part of! 




I'm currently sharing snippets from Starquest, the first book in the SF Romance series,  The Destiny Trilogy.
Thanks so much to everyone who commented last week. (I'll be away at the RNA conference next week so will have to miss a week but hope to continue with the penultimate snippet from this book the week after.

Summary of snippets so far:

Having been rescued from her sabotaged starship by the crew of the Destiny, Jess has persuaded them to help her save the inhabitants of the planet Phidia from a cruel invader by the name of Ayandos. Kerry Marchant, the ship's second in command, has had to revise his initial mistrust of her. He is also somewhat stunned on learning that far from being the deceitful character he'd thought her, she is not only on a mission to save a planet, but is in fact an interstellar missionary!

Punctuation slightly Edited from published version to keep within sentence count.

Now that he felt confident she no longer posed a danger to the ship, he admitted to feeling a certain concern for her. She was obviously still anxious about something and he could not surmise what it might be. She was starting to disturb him more than he cared to admit, and it was no longer because he did not trust her. There had been a note of sincerity in her voice when she’d told her story, which was as convincing to him as it obviously was to Jon. 

He shrugged, he must have been in space too long. He was growing soft. He had never lost sleep over a woman before and he was not about to do so now. Not even for a beautiful, green-eyed missionary with long, flame-coloured hair. He narrowed his eyes in sudden resolve. No, especially not for a beautiful, green-eyed missionary with long, flame-coloured hair.


BLURB: When Jestine Darnell is rescued from her sabotaged starship by the crew of the Destiny her only objective is to complete her mission and keep her promise to save a world from slavery. Love is the last thing on her mind. However, she has not counted on losing her heart to Kerry Marchant the ship’s second in command, who makes his distrust of her painfully obvious, despite the chemistry between them. The completion of her mission has consequences that neither of them could have foreseen.

Enter Dahll Tarron, who becomes involved in a long and dangerous quest to find the Destiny. Fates become intertwined, perils shared, culminating in the realization that sometimes love may be so close that there is a danger it will not be recognized until it is too late…

WeWriWar - Starquest - The Destiny's crew makes a decision


Welcome to Weekend Writing Warrior and 8 Sentence Sunday, the weekly hop for everyone who loves to read and write! We've got a variety of genres and talented writers just waiting for you to come sample their work.

I'm currently sharing snippets from Starquest, the first book in the SF Romance series,  The Destiny Trilogy.

Jess has been rescued from her crippled ship by the crew of the Destiny. After a great deal of hesitation she tells the Jon, the ship's commander, and  Kerry Marchant, the ship's second in command, that she is on a mission to save the people of a distant planet from slavery and the exploitation of their people's medical advances and the planet's mineral wealth.

You can read last week's snippet HERE

As always, some 'creative punctuation' to adhere to sentence count.


After Jess has explained that she is on a mission to bring assistance to the beleaguered planet, Phidia, Jon, the Destiny's commander calls a meeting of the crew to discuss whether they should help her or not.


“What do you think, Ragin...Delian?”

“As far as we are able to tell without entering her mind, she seems completely trustworthy,” the telepath said. “Her aura shows no indication of deceit or trickery.”

“We believe we should help her,” Delian added.

“Laitha...Kerry?” Jon queried.

Laitha tossed her head, grinning, “Oh, let’s do it. I was getting bored anyway, I could do with a good fight.”

“And I don’t like the idea of a defenceless planet being taken over by invaders and subjected to the sort of oppression we left back on Earth,” Jon said.

He looked questioningly at Kerry. The Destiny’s second-in-command gave one of his uncharacteristic smiles as if there had never been any doubt about his answer. “Why not? Everyone else seems to be in favour, and I tend to agree with Laitha, I too could use a little excitement.”
