SFFSat - Nov 10

Welcome to another Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday.

SFFSat is a place where a bunch of us post snippets from our written works and also shoot the breeze a little. And before I get ahead of myself, thanks and appreciation as always to those who stop by and leave fantastic comments.
To Catch A Marlin
is available in Ebook & Paperback
from Amazon

To celebrate the release of To Catch A Marlin, yet another snippet.
To Catch A Marlin is a futuristic cat and mouse tale involving Special Inspector Pedroni and the vigilante Jax Marlin, who just happens to be a super sexy woman with ninja skills.

Today, we have Pedroni scrambling away from a rather amorous encounter with a guest on the Bacchus Dome (a pleasure station in space). It should be noted that nothing happened, other than Pedroni losing some of his dignity...he's very prudish when he's ready.


            He scrambled to fix himself as he scurried away, in search of his jacket. To his horror, it had landed behind the woman; he hesitated, running through ways to avoid her clutches. She still lay on the floor, legs spread and waving in the air to the cheers of the onlookers.
            A service droid resembling a mermaid scooped up Pedroni’s jacket and brought it to him with a smile. He breathed out a sigh and graciously thanked the machine—then fled.
            As he rounded a corner, he ran hands through his hair and pressed his back against a wall.
            These people...
            He had nothing against the woman, other than the large breasts, which always intimidated him—her approach was simply offensive. He scrubbed a hand over his face, hot and sweaty from the humiliating encounter. The sooner he got off this debauching place, the better.

  1. Nice descriptive narrative. It makes me curious as to how he came to be on the ship, and what her 'offensive' approach was. And why he tried to accept her approach. This reads like a story of self-discovery.

  2. Funny you should say, but it sort of is like a story of self-discovery. The tag line for the book reads: "What WOULDN'T you do to catch a criminal." So, yeah...lots of pondering questions abound. Glad you enjoyed, and thanks!

  6. I'm guessing he headed up to the station to try to track down his quarry, and his presence was mis-interpreted. His discomforture comes across loud and clear - a very effective snippet.

  7. I would have been offended, too. Not everyone likes the legs open upon meeting approach. You conveyed his embarrassment and need to escape well. I was with him.

  8. Wow, got some second-hand embarrassment from this snippet! LOL. Poor man. :)

  9. Yep, I'm with Pedroni on this one. I'm all for debauchery, but not with folks who don't respect my boundaries.

    Excited to pick this book up! Especially as when I added it to my reading list on Wattpad I saw that the first chapter is set in my hometown. ;)
