I have mentioned before that I have a book coming out. I’ve even mentioned the name, ‘Lex Talionis’, but I realise I haven’t said much more than that. Mostly because I don’t want to come across as being pushy or spamming anyone with my desperate authorial desire for you to read my stuff.
Which you can totally feel free to do. Anytime. Like really. Annnyyyyttimmee. *Stares at you hopefully*
Anyway, I know one or two of you might actually be reading this blog for the writing and publication stuff, and as I’m in the last stages of publication and have an almost firm publication date, I thought it might be time to post my blurb, just so you have an idea what the book’s about.
Vengeance is only the beginning…
On one of Earth’s planetary outposts, a young woman dies–and is brought back to life by a mysterious alien.
Inside a military starship, a wounded soldier is stalked by an unseen enemy.
When Lex reawakens in a clinic, she doesn’t remember who she is, or who killed her. All she remembers is a phrase she does not understand. Lex Talionis. The law of revenge. Stripped of her past, Lex focuses on the only thing she can. Retribution. She will find the people who murdered her and she will make them pay.
What Lex doesn’t know is that she’s being hunted. The alien who saved her and the soldier fighting for survival are the keys to her past…and her future. She must discover what they know before the hunter finds her. Every clue brings her closer to powerful enemies. Everything she learns draws her nearer to the person who almost destroyed her.
The only man she has ever loved.
So there you have it. With any luck, I haven’t sent you off screaming into the night ::grin::.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, or you didn’t feel like googling, lex talionis is Latin, and translates roughly into the law of retaliation, or revenge.
See what I did there?
I know! Sometimes I amaze myself, I’m so subtle.
