Today's ebook giveaway of the sci-fi novel, NEXUS POINT, is from Jaleta Clegg, whose interview -- "Writing is Like Burping..." -- ran Feb. 17 on The Writers' Lens. She has short stories in various anthologies and magazines in genres ranging from science fiction to fantasy to silly horror. Links are available at www.jaletac.com .
NEXUS POINT: Dace's wants are simple - a trading ship and the freedom to fly where she chooses. But on her first trip, her crew betrays her, her ship explodes, and she finds herself stranded on Dadilan, a planet locked in a feudal age.
Survival is hard enough when you have no technology or resources. It's even harder when you have drug smugglers hunting you. Dadilan is the source of shara, a drug that enhances psychic abilities, a commodity so rare and precious people will kill for it.
Trapped between rival smugglers and the Patrol undercover investigation, Dace has one hope of rescue: convincing Tayvis, the undercover agent, she's an innocent bystander. But those don't exist on Dadilan. No one lands without authorization, unless they are smuggling.
Her ignorance may cost her life.
NEXUS POINT, the first book in The Fall of the Altairan Empire, is available at www.nexuspoint.info.
