Welcome to another SFFSat, where a bunch of us post snippets from our written works and shoot the breeze. Thanks also to everyone who stops by and leaves awesome comments. Much appreciated.
Today, I'm happy to announce the release of the Ring of Fire Short Story Sampler Vol. 1. My short, To Catch A Marlin: Purged in Fire is featured, along with shorts from seven other talented and amazing author's. The sampler is available on Kindle in both ebook and paperback.
For those out of the loop, To Catch A Marlin is a futuristic cat and mouse tale between Special Inspector Pedroni and the vigilante Jax Marlin, who just happens to be a super sexy woman with ninja skills.
In this scene, from Purged in Fire, Jax picks a fights with a known criminal of the nasty variety. Don't worry, she's Jax -- she'll be alright.
She turned, twisted, deflected another blow, brought her leg up and around his neck and squeezed. She heard him gag. Pushing down with her leg, she brought his head to the floor, reared up and slammed a fist into his sternum. His body jerked from the pain. She released him quickly, spun around, punched under his jawbone and heard a crack as his teeth snapped together. His head shot up from the impact and he let out a pained moan. Unrelenting, she planted another blow in his ear. Immediately, disorientation took effect and Moor’s eyes went wide and unfocused. He staggered and slumped to the floor, struggling to get his bearings. For good measure, she punched him in the other ear.
