Another bit from Chapter Four, Episode 2 of my Cosmic Cowboys Series. Ela, an Apache princess, is out of her time (1800s New Mexico) and this is her first experience with television.
Enjoy a tiny excerpt from The Astronaut’s Princess…
Ela watched, captivated. She tapped her transcom so she could understand what the characters were saying then eased to the end of the bed and sat. She leaned forward like a ten-year-old, her face less than two feet from the screen.
“This woman. She is a princess?”
“Her father is a chief?” Ela asked, her eyes round with wonder.
“Erm, not exactly. Her father is Darth Vader. But you aren’t supposed to know that yet.”
Brace for impact. The Astronaut’s Princess is landing Feb. 16
Astronauts, Aliens, and Apaches? What could possibly go wrong?
Working for a billionaire space entrepreneur has its perks: a nice paycheck, free room and board, and all the space flight hours a guy could want. But everything has a price. Astronaut Noah Wright has survived an alien attack, time travel and a wormhole, but the Apache princess he brought back through time may be the death of him.
Ela, only daughter of Chief Itza-Chu of the Mescalero Apaches, finds herself out of place and out of time. Everything she knows of her early 1800’s life has vanished. Her savior and protector, Noah, is kind, but he’s not her family and certainly not Apache. Her only wish is to get home, but returning through the wormhole that brought her to the future threatens more than her past, causing her to have to rediscover what home really is.
