SciFi Fantasy Saturday- April 21

In honor of getting the first round of edits back from my editor, for these weeks snippet, I thought I’d give a sneak peak from the forthcoming book, Aristeia: A Little Rebellion, sequel to Revolutionary Right.

A sound from the door caught his attention, and he turned to see Gu’od, Gamaly, and Saracasi coming in. Startled to see all of them arrive at once, Zeric was glad he had bothered to get dressed this morning. A man with room service and nowhere to go didn’t really need pants.

“You could have knocked,” Zeric said.

“And miss the chance to catch you in your underwear?” Gamaly asked with a playful smile.

“You just need to ask for that,” Zeric said with a grin, before casting a glance at Gu’od. “And get me a promise that he won’t kill me.”

“I could never make that promise,” Gu’od said, his facial expression his normal variety of neutral.

    Hey, you honoured your editor with a couple of typos. ‘…these weeks…’ tsk, tsk! (I’m just teasing you). Seriously, though, awesome snippet. The line about the pants is top-drawer, as they say. 🙂

    Getting caught with your pants down, you’ll always need some quick comeback lines. Great stuff…Think I’m gonna have to download the first one now. 🙂

    The geek in me promptly read “Gu’od” as “Goa’uld” but that little moment aside, I loved this. Nice flirtatious dialogue.

  11. Pants are totally optional, IMHO. I loved this snippet. Thank you so much for sharing and good luck on your edits.
