I'm so excited to announce my critique partner's new release! Cherie Reich has been my critique partner for so long, I can't imagine writing life without her. I'm so lucky to be able to work with her on these and read them before the whole world does! Defying Gravity is the first in this trilogy, but each book also stands on its own.
Here's the blurb:
A Futuristic Space Fantasy Novelette
Forced into executing Aresia's people, Phoebus escapes the Aresian Guard by flying his spaceship through a wormhole.
The only single woman of marrying age, Marissa flees her prospects of becoming Elder McGee's third wife for a chance at freedom upon the New Atlantic Ocean.
When Phoebus's spacecraft crashes upon an asteroid-ravaged Earth, he is captured by a rogue Earthling youth and thrown into a cellar. Marissa stumbles upon the spacecraft, but it explodes before she can find any sign of the alien. When she awakens, she discovers the alien's whereabouts and vows to help him. They plot his escape when they learn Phoebus's Aresians have landed and are searching for him. Phoebus and Marissa must battle against their despair and their peoples in their quest for freedom and love. And through it all, an Earthling and an Aresian will find it easier to fight gravity than their love for each other.
