#SFFS Her Cyborg Awakes

Here's a snippet from Her Cyborg Awakes, which is currently free on Amazon!


“Wake. Wake.” He hauled the sleeping woman into his arms. “We need to get down to the beach, to one of the caves.”

 A timer went off in his brain, the timer he was to obey, for his nightly maintenance. He groaned with confusion. No− The caves! 

He threw the queen over his shoulder with her blankets covering her, and loped toward the beach, ignoring her protests and squirms. She was round and soft, not strong, not a warrior woman and he was able to subdue her struggles easily without harming her. In the far distance the Strafe slashed through the air, lighting the way with its killing white light, and the woman screamed in shock, her whole body going tight.

  5. I liked the heroine, she is sooo not kick ass. I can relate. Am experimenting with the Kindle Prime, curious to see if it will boost sales eventually.

    Be sure to let us know if KDP Select works to boost sales. (Well, don't tell Caffrey, he needs no help.)
