Are Genj and Utahn finally together again? Weekend Writing Warriors from GENJ #Romance #MMRomance #SciFiRomance #KaddimBrothers


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Hello everyone! Thank you to all those who came to visit me last weekend! This weekend, I'm sharing another snippet from my new release, GENJ, the second book in my Sci-Fi MPreg MM Romance series, KADDIM BROTHERS.

Set-up: Last weekend Genj decided to take some unscheduled time off. He's heading back to Orez. And his brother is not happy. That didn't stop Genj.

In this snippet, Genj is now on Orez. Enjoy!


Regardless of my brother’s objection, I left the shuttle once it landed on Orez. Call it stubbornness, or my alpha instincts finally kicking in, but I refused to return to Eurebly without spending time with Utahn. There was something drawing me here, and I couldn’t shake it.

I didn’t have any bags to collect, all of my belongings I’d taken to Harasa either still in our weekend accommodations or with my team, heading to Eurebly. So, unencumbered, I dashed out through the sliding door of the small spaceport and caught one of the waiting hovercabs.

Ojokun’s training school was within walking distance. I probably should have stopped in to visit my former-teammate turned brother-in-law, and say some encouraging words to his future space racers, but I had time to do that another day.

The cab took me straight to my old neighborhood where Utahn’s bakery sat, along with several other shops selling locally made goods. After swiping my wrist over the scanner to pay, I stepped out and stood on the walkway. Through the window, I spotted the omega I wanted to be my mate. His hair, now dark brown again, was up in a net. His apron and his round cheeks were covered in rolef as he stepped up to the counter and greeted the customer there. I couldn’t wait to see his expression when I surprised him.



GENJ
Kaddim Brothers book two

Genj is a cinnamon roll alpha. Even as one of the circuit’s best space racers, he’s shy and rather clumsy. Not qualities anyone wants in a mate, especially the omega he’s crushed on for years. But when Genj invites Utahn on a whim to visit him for a weekend, the omega agrees.

Utahn never expected his best friend’s older brother to reciprocate his feelings. Genj is a space racer, and everyone in the universe knows they rarely commit. When the two get together, sparks fly. And what once seemed impossible becomes a dream come true.

But situations change. And past relationships have a way of interfering with new ones. Can Genj and Utahn work through past traumas, or were they never meant to be more than a childhood crush?

Taking some unscheduled time off ~ Weekend Writing Warriors excerpt from GENJ #Romance #MMRomance #SciFiRomance #KaddimBrothers


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Hello everyone! Thank you to all those who came to visit me last weekend! This weekend, I'm sharing another snippet from my new release, GENJ, the second book in my Sci-Fi MPreg MM Romance series, KADDIM BROTHERS.

Set-up: Last weekend Genj was busy helping get everyone in the shed organized with the USRA for visitors to evacuate the planet. But, he also had some time to think....

In this snippet, we're getting closer to the moment you're all waiting for. Enjoy!


Since the race was now canceled for the weekend, I had no plans. If I returned to Eurebly, Ret would make us practice the thidemrev maneuver again, since we didn’t get to perform it here. But I had somewhere else I wanted to be.

As soon as we were given the signal, I ushered the rescued tourists to their designated space shuttle. Then I rushed over to the one heading to Quadrant One, with a stop on Orez.

Xac passed me, yanking on my flight suit. “You’re going in the wrong direction. Our shuttle’s over here.”

“No.” I shook their hand off. “Tell Ret I’ll be back in a couple of days.”

*And some more if you're interested...

They pursed their lips as their eyebrows lifted high into their forehead, but they didn’t say another word before walking away.

We both knew how my brother would react, and that was why I planned to be on my way to Orez before he learned I was taking some unscheduled time off.

 ON NOW: The Ultimate Writer’s Toolkit Giveaway

Description automatically generated

I have a giveaway to tell you about that you absolutely do not want to miss. Angela and Becca, the co-authors of The Emotion Thesaurus, are celebrating their book’s 10th anniversary with a massive giveaway!

They’ve scoured the internet for the best tools to help a writer strengthen their storytelling and give their career a boost – I’m talking software licences, subscriptions, course bundles, and even a full set of the Writers Helping Writers thesaurus guides. And some lucky writer is going to WIN IT ALL.

I would love for one of you to win, so head over to this post and enter by May 13th. Good luck to you!

Also, this is a good time for me to suggest looking into The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression. If you struggle with how to show your character’s emotions, or simply need to stop using the same actions over and over (like me), this book has 130 different emotions and gives you lists of ways to describe them through body language, thoughts, visceral sensations, dialogue cues, and more. It’s helped me with every one of my stories! And when I bought the updated version, I passed the original one on to my oldest child, who is also a writer. Maybe it will help you, too!

(You can find a few sample entries here if you want to see what these lists look like.)

The storm cancelled the race. But what does that mean for GENJ? Weekend Writing Warriors #Romance #MMRomance #SciFiRomance #KaddimBrothers


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Hello everyone! Thank you to all those who came to visit me last weekend! This weekend, I'm sharing another snippet from my new release, GENJ, the second book in my Sci-Fi MPreg MM Romance series, KADDIM BROTHERS.

Set-up: Last weekend Genj got caught in a sandstorm and ended up in a shed. I hate to disappoint all of you, but it wasn't Utahn who he pulled in with him. It was a random stranger. But that doesn't mean Utahn and Genj won't be together soon....

In this snippet, I'm skipping ahead a little in this scene. Genj is still in the shed and had a helmet plopped on his head to clean his eyes. As soon as he could see, he asked one of the mechanics what he could do to help. She asked him to use the comm unit to try to contact the USRA or anyone else, as their personal communicators were all offline. Enjoy!


Static filled the screen, but I could hear a clicking sound. “Skyranked Laeu here. Please tell me your name and status.”

I let out a breath of relief. At least the storm hadn’t knocked out the comm system entirely. “Yes, this is Genj Kaddim of ORIXA. I’m in shed”—I glanced around for an identifying marker, and found the number next to the comm unit—“eighteen. All the crew are accounted for, and they rescued a few others caught in the storm. I should have names for you soon.”

“Got it.” The screen cleared, and I saw the skyranked for the first time. A Retemian, their gills pulsing in an odd manner. Had they been caught in the sandstorm, too?

*And some more if you're interested...

“The forecast shows the weather improving temporarily in an hour. We’re sending all racers to Eurebly, then, and the fans home while we can.”

“Okay. I’ll let everyone here know.”

The time passed slowly and quickly at the same time. I went back and forth between the shed and office, relaying information to both parties to arrange where everyone inside needed to go in order for all non-residents to evacuate the planet. No one had predicted such a bad storm, and the USRA could only estimate how long it would last, but they wanted to get everyone safely home while they could. Once all the details had been arranged, we still had to wait for the air to clear. Giving me plenty of time to think.
