Book One, Her Cyborg Awakes is Free!
abralia has been in my life for years. I first started writing Her Cyborg Awakes in 2006 while I recovered from a nasty illness. I didn't finish her story then--I got better, got a new day job ...I got back to it a couple years later. It was first published under the title Cybot Awakens. Then there were a couple years where I worked to extract the book contract and republish. While I was waiting in a queue with a publisher, I decided to put it up on Amazon As Her Cyborg Awakes. It sold well and is now the first of a series which I plan to continue in 2017.
Meet the Heroine:
Her gown arrived in triplicate, so she could wear a fresh gown each day of the feast and be easily recognized by the Commanders who fancied her. Too bad the beauty was all for the enjoyment of men who would just use her. Rape her.
Down by the
water she could think—think of a way to avoid being raped by the Emperor’s finest. And if she cried a few tears, the ocean water would disguise it. She slipped into a simple swim tunic and thin leggings and Qy accompanied her down her private stairs to the sandy beach.
The palace was on a hill overlooking a wide bay. Long stretches of white sand contrasted with the pristine blue green waters of the sea. This was a beautiful world, with a warm climate and abundant forests and meadows. It would be an ideal agricultural world, but
Sirn had not opened it to colonists, and none of the native life forms were sentient. Sirn only used it for military installations and his palace. Sirn held hunting parties now and then, and the dangerous beasts had been removed from the palace and spaceport area. The women of the Common Harem did not have access to this section of beach because it stretched close to the spaceport, and Sirn did not want them distracting his men. But she had been deemed not a security risk to the spaceport. She’d been married to Sirn since her teen years and had no military or spacecraft education, nor was she flirtatious as far as their records indicated.
A wonderful, scary idea came to her as she floated, letting a gentle wave glide her to shore. The beach! That was the answer!
