Hello everyone! Welcome to day two of the Christmas Party at The Romance Studio. I hope you’re having fun! I’ve sent out most of my Christmas cards now, and started putting together some gifts. I still have a bunch of baking and wrapping to do.
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Jessica E. Subject, and I write sci-fi romance that ranges from sweet to super sexy. I write about aliens, clones, androids, futuristic and dystopian worlds, and most recently, zombies. To find out more about me and my books, visit my website at http://jessicasubject.com.
As I mentioned in my post from yesterday, a signed paperback of BRYCE is available in the “Party Giveaway”. So, I thought I would share some of my favorite lines from the story…
1 – Bryce raised his crossbow, lining his sights on the creature standing amongst the bushes, its branch-like tentacles undulating in the gentle breeze. Focusing the crosshairs on the alien’s torso, he drew in a deep breath. He had one shot. ==> These are the opening lines of the story. To me, it displays the intensity of the opening scene, and what is going to happen throughout the story.
2 – What child wanted to know her mother came from another planet? Or could keep the fact a secret?
3 – She’d heard the alien hunters used wormholes, but had never seen or traveled through one, and hoped to never again.
4 – “He’s probably really tired right now. Wasn’t very cooperative at first, but I managed to tame the beast.”
5 – Bryce had both Katrina and a young Kalaren on the ground doing push-ups. “Anytime you feel like releasing a little energy, this is what I want you to do.” He crouched in front of them while the other Defenders in the room watched in amusement.
6 – A little girl dashed out in front of her, jet-black curls bouncing along her shoulders. In her tattered white gown—probably a hand-me-down from an older generation—she stared up into her eyes, no reservations about approaching royalty. “Princess Lalia, where have you been? They taught us in school you were killed in the Erebus attack.”
7 – And what was she supposed to have told them? You must meet with me because I’m an alien princess? No doubt the truth would have landed her in a mental institution, or worse, a lab.
8 – A tiny head with jet-black hair peeked out from under a tree root. “Princess, is it really you?”
9 – “A planet has just been destroyed.” The thought of growling at the young Vella crossed his mind. Instead, he sidestepped him and headed to the control room to meet the leader of the Galactic Alliance. “There is no good news today.”
10 – “You may be responsible for sending them to Niesgoo, but you’re only responsible for their deaths if you leave them there to die.”
