    How can the chance of a lifetime go so horribly wrong?

    Mining Engineer Cole Hudson signed up for NASA astronaut training, but after washing out short of getting his gold wings, he retreats to Alaska where he stakes out a gold claim. When billionaire entrepreneur Duncan Janson offers him an opportunity to join a mining team on an asteroid, Cole jumps at the chance.

    But nothing is as it seems. Former NASA reject and rival classmate, Tessa Hernandez, is also a member of the team, and from the beginning of the mission test flight, things go wrong. They soon discover they’re not the only ones on the asteroid. As they try to escape, they are pulled through a wormhole and back to the early 1800s New Mexico desert where aliens and Apaches may be the least of their problems.

  • Chapter Two excerpt from Space Cowboys & Indians landing July 15

    Not too terribly long ago I gave you a sneak peek at Chapter One of Space Cowboys & Indians, where you met our hero, Cole Hudson. Not one to sit by unnoticed , our heroine Tessa Hernandez has demanded equal opportunity. Tessa is a brilliant engineer and pilot with a fiery personality, and she’s none too happy to find out who their newest crewmate may be.

    Meet Tessa.

    Chapter Two

    rocketship

    Roswell, New Mexico – the near future

    Tessa Hernandez swirled her straw around the gin and tonic sitting on the bar top in front of her at O’Malley’s. Another Friday night in the Roswell bar—was this six or seven weeks since Janson had dragged her out of her self-imposed exile of humiliation with an offer she couldn’t refuse?

    Ever since she’d been dismissed from the NASA training program, she’d been in a downward spiral. Anger issues, they’d said. Hadn’t passed the final psych eval. Even after completing the twenty-month program—she’d totally financed—they’d passed her over for promotion to astronaut. Let them try growing up with six older Hispanic brothers in a Catholic home in South Texas.

    They hadn’t even seen anger issues yet.

    She wasn’t sure what burned her ass the most, that she had been days away from fulfilling her dream when they’d booted her, or that they’d let her spend out before it happened.

    Total toss-up.

    But, now? Janson offered her a second chance. Her own personal patron saint of lost causes, it seemed.

    She tipped back the tumbler and let the clear, tart drink slide down her throat.

    “Want another?” Noah Wright slid up to the barstool beside her carrying a head-sized plate of greasy home-cut fries covered in cheese. His dirty blond hair feathered out beneath the ball cap, and his blue eyes sparkled with mischief.

    “Sure. You buying?”

    “Absolutely. Barkeep, send the lady another.” Noah gave her a crooked smile and shoved the plate of fries closer to her. “I’ll share.”

    “No, thanks. You’re going to regret those tomorrow.”

    “Probably. They’ll evacuate us, anyway, before we go. Might as well make ’em work for their money.”

    “You’re disgusting.” Tessa smiled at him.

    “I try. Besides, no way is my potentially last meal on Earth going to be space MREs.” He shoved a fistful of fries into his mouth. “Aaahve oooo sheen tha nooo ghay?”

    “I had brothers—who were animals—and still, I have no idea what you just said. Swallow a few fries first, then talk.” Tessa slid her new drink closer to her and began again with the stir-and-ignore vibe she’d mastered.

    Noah swallowed audibly. “I said. Have you seen the new guy?”

    “No. You?”

    “Heard Janson flew to Alaska and dragged him off a gold mine claim.”

    “Alaska?”

    “Yep. Also, heard he was in ‘The Program.’ A reject. Just like us.”

    “You had better be freaking kidding me.” She laid her head down on top of her tumbler, disgusted by what she knew was coming next.

    “What’s that reaction all about?” he asked, wiping cheese off his cheek.

    “You got a name for this reject?” she asked, hoping against hope.

    “Hudson, I think. Like the river. Can’t remember his first name.”

    “Cole,” Tessa mumbled. Just as she’d feared.

    “Was he in your class?”

    “Briefly.”

    “Reeeeally? You gonna make me drag it out of you? Spill it. If we’re going to space with this guy, I’d like to know whose hands I’m putting my life into.”

    “Oh, you’re safe enough. Not dangerous. Pendejo.” Tessa sighed. “Besides, you’re on the wrong team for him to cause you any trouble.”

    “Cole is gay? You’re mad because he’s gay?”

    “Good God, no. He’s…”

    “I’m confused. Granted, it’s a state I’m familiar with. Still. What’s your grind with this guy? Do you know why he got booted?”

    Bar noise picked up behind them as the band came onto the stage. “Money problems from what I heard. But if not for that, he’d still be sleeping his way through the female recruits.”

    “Ah, I see then.”

    Tessa whipped around on her bar stool. “What’s that mean?”

    “You had a thing for him. Am I right?”

    “Not. Even. Close.”

    “Okay, I give up. Clearly I have no idea what your damage is with this guy.” Noah used his last three fries to sweep the remaining cheese from his plate and then pointed them at Tessa. “Whatever it is? Let it go. This is our big shot. Those losers still in ‘The Program’…” Noah made air quotes with his fries and fingers. “They have to follow the rules. Us? We’re making the rules.”

    Tessa watched as Noah licked cheese from each finger. “I think rules are the least of our worries.”

  • Apaches and aliens in new #SFR release landing July 15.

    Did you know that Roswell, New Mexico is less than two hours from the Mescalero Apache Reservation? 

    When I started thinking about writing my sci-fi, space-adventure romance, I knew I wanted the base to be in New Mexico much like the very real Spaceport America. The deeper I dug the more interesting the story possibilities became.

    I don’t want to give too much away, but the Mescalero Apache Indians and the mysteries of Roswell’s UFO activity through the years, both play big roles in Space Cowboys & Indians.

    I loved learning about the Apache Indians.

    Our heroes and heroine get to enjoy some Apache hospitality as well as wild game meat and chigustei (flat bread).  I plan to make some chigustei to try myself. You can find the recipe here Chigustei Recipe if you’d like to make a special treat to enjoy with your reading.

  • #8Sunday Sentences from Space Cowboys & Indians

    This week’s selection is from my current sci-fi adventure-romance novella, Space Cowboys & Indians. Think of a movie mashup of Cowboys & Aliens meets Six Days Seven Nights.

    Our hero, Cole Hudson, is a mining engineer and rejected NASA astronaut trainee who is now working a quickly deteriorating Alaska gold claim when billionaire entrepreneur, Duncan Janson, comes calling with an offer he can’t refuse.

    Here’s 8:

    SpaceCandIw (533x800)“Your season here is winding down? Am I correct?”

    Considering the ruined washplant screens? Yeah, winding down would be a kindness.

    “You didn’t tell me where the job is,” Cole pressed.

    “Ah, that’s the best part, Mr. Hudson. The job is on Amun–an asteroid. I want you to mine it for me.”

     

     

     

    That’s all until next week, folks. Thanks for visiting.

  • COVER REVEAL: Space Cowboys & Indians – Episode 1 of the Cosmic Cowboys Series

    SpaceCandIw (533x800)

    Well? What do you think?

    I’m one day away from writing the ending of the first draft of Space Cowboys & Indians. I didn’t know when I started, but Space Cowboys & Indians is a novella (approximately 150 pages) and the first in a series of sci-fi adventure-romance episodes.

    There’s adventure, asteroid mining, time travel, romance and much, much more.

    It will be available mid-summer (sooner if the stars align).

    Look for a sneak peek right here on Sunday as part of the Weekend Writing Warriors’ #8Sunday series.

  • Work In Progress: Space Cowboys & Indians

    shutterstock_64087615I may have gone slightly mad.

    I’ve been working feverishly on a sci-fi romance, which I’ve named Space Cowboys & Indians. So far, it’s been really fun. I’m a couple hundred words shy of 20K and expect it to end up around 60K, which is near 250 pages. It will be available in e-book and print sometime this year.

    SC&I is a mashup of the movies Cowboys vs Aliens meets Six Days Seven Nights.

    bef00834-a4da-365c-af09-52d29bd99392  meets 1c95593e-c9b4-342d-a93e-f7c93fae475a

    Right now, my hero and heroine still hate each other. That’s fixin’ to change 😀

    Be prepared for space tourism, asteroid mining, Mescalero Apache Indians, aliens, Roswell, NM, time travel and romance. I see it as a trilogy.
