Fixit, she’s out of this world!

The story follows Fixit, she’s out of this world! Literally as it turns out, as she mans a repair station on another planet, making sure all of the automated harvesters supply food to all the other people who live in the great floating cities of Tau Ceti Prime.

When pirates attack and shipments are lost, can Fixit, fix it? And where does the alluring but cocky Sky Guard ranger, Vashon, fit into the mix?

Excerpt:

I looked at Glitch and the phase coupler he held with his grappler.  I grinned and shook my head at the silly orb shaped maintenance pinger who was digging through the ‘boneyard’ with me, as we scavenged the sprawling junkyard of broken agricultural pingers.  “No, you silly boy, we need a J9 phase inverter, not a coupler.”

I sighed, what’s a girl to do?

He peered at me with his ocular lens that was centered in his spherical body. His lens looked between me and the coupler in his grappler, and then he trundled a little closer on his rubberized metal tank treads, random power sparking from loose connections between his mobility platform and his body.  I’d have to fix that again.  He extended his grappler with the part, like a puppy giving a ball to his master.

I patted his faded yellow dome and then asked patiently, “Glitch, is that an inverter?”

He looked at it again and then turned his body side to side slightly, mimicking shaking his head.

I grinned and asked, “Is that a coupler?”

His body swiveled forward and back on his servo.

“And what are we looking for?”

The glitchy pinger looked at the part again and then he visibly drooped as sparks arced from an exposed panel on his side.  Now that just wasn’t fair, playing with my emotions like that.  I sighed and took the coupler from him and said, “I guess it doesn’t hurt to have a spare coupler or two hanging around the shop.”

He seemed to brighten at that, and I patted his dome again.  “Okay, now let’s find that inverter shall we?  I have to get that damn harvester running before breakfast, or we will miss our grain quota for the month.  And I have never missed a quota.”


Author Bio

I got my start writing novels by accident. I have always been drawn to strong female characters in books, like Honor Harrington. And I also believe that there is a lack of LGBT characters in media. So one day I came up with a story idea that combines the two… two days later I completed the manuscript for Music of the Soul.

I write LGBT novels in many genres including romance, scifi, paranormal, fantasy, and dystopian to name a few.  And my writing style may not be the most professional nor grammatically correct, but I never profess to be an English major, just a person that wants to share a story. I maintain that my primary language is sarcasm.

Each of my books features strong likeable female characters that are flawed. I think that flaws and emotional or physical scars make us human and give us more character than simply conforming to some “social norm”.
