EXCERPT: A Room with a View
The door glided open and Marie stepped through, to find herself in the heart of the nebula. She squeaked and Soren grasped her arm in reassurance. The floor of the room was a burnished silver disk beneath the heavens. Crimson and gold light, woven in twisted strands of fire and strung with stars, formed a gauzy canopy overhead. As the door closed, the illusion was complete. They hovered in the fiery remnants of a long dead star. In a shroud of scarlet flames between them and a void full of shadows and distant pinprick suns.
Marie forced herself to take a long breath, then another. Her heart fluttered. “I told Jaisen that if I ever had the credit, I’d do a tour of the nebula,” she murmured, as she drank in the beauty of it. “You can barely see it from the surface of the planet. Too much light pollution and atmospheric distortion.”
She knew she was rambling but couldn’t seem to stop herself.
Terms & Conditions Apply started as the answer to a submission call by talented spec-fic romance author Misa Buckley, for an SFR anthology called Andromedan Dreams – Venus Ascendant Anthology. One aspect of Misa’s proposed cover that instantly caught my eye was the red nebula featured behind the space station of the title. The romantic getaway of Venus Ascendant with its holographic rooms that could transform into the place of a client’s dream meant I could make a random feature from the cover an essential part of my story. So my female MC Marie, who has dreamed of visiting the nebula as she stared up from the roof of her grotty apartment block, finds more than one wish fulfilled.
“Venus Ascendant is a space station situated in the Andromeda Galaxy. With its open-to-all policy, it attracts beings from all over the universe as a destination for R&R, dangerous liaisons and romantic getaways.
The sentient, empathic AI ensures that whoever comes to Venus Ascendant finds exactly what they want and “rooms” can be anything from luxurious boudoirs to sunset-lit beaches to dark BDSM dungeons.
So come to Venus Ascendant and find exactly what you’re looking for!”
You can find out what else Marie found on Venus Ascendant by downloading Terms & Conditions Apply from the following digital retailers. More coming soon!
A stay-at-home mum of three who spent twelve years working as an Analytical Chemist in a Metals and Minerals laboratory, Pippa Jay bases her stories on a lifetime addiction to science-fiction books and films. Somewhere along the line a touch of romance crept into her work and refused to leave. Between torturing her characters, she spends the odd free moments trying to learn guitar, indulging in freestyle street dance and drinking high-caffeine coffee. Although happily settled in historical Colchester in the UK with her husband of 19 years, she continues to roam the rest of the Universe in her head.
One lucky winner will get a blingy star keyring and a digital copy of Terms & Conditions Apply in the format of their choice by entering the Rafflecopter below, available internationally. The giveway closes on the 10th December.
