Starry Nights Blog Hop - KG's post

Welcome to the SFR Brigade's Midsummer Blog Hop: Starry Nights! To celebrate, I'm sharing a little scene in book one in my sci-fi romance series, Mirror Image. It's brief in the book but so meaningful. As a clone, Maddie isn't supposed to be able to fall in love but has had a crush on John. Laying on the brown grass on the Aurora planet, this is the first time she really allows herself to think about him. At the end, make sure you enter to win some awesome prizes! Amazon gift cards, free books, and more! Click the link to check out other blogs on the hop.

"Apparently, our intelligence was right about the Gorium. We just didn't know that Agent Gatewood was the one who hired them." Jackson explained.

"Along with other agents," Mack gravely said.

"Why would other agents join her cause?" Maddie asked.

"I couldn't tell you," Mack stiffly responded.

"I'm sorry, I just don't understand. Everyone I talked to admires you," Maddie said.

"You didn't talk to the entire base. Besides, if someone disliked me, think they would have told you? My clone?" Mack asked, her voice sounding bitter.

"I'm...I'm sorry. I didn't mean-" Maddie was put off by how harsh Mack's voice sounded.

"Don't worry about it. No harm done." Mack flatly said, turning away from her.

Maddie felt terrible. She didn't mean to further upset Mack. She told herself Mack was under a lot of stress, and the news another agent was trying to kill her was shocking. Maddie opened her mouth to speak to her counterpart again but Jackson shook his head at her. It was best she kept quiet for the time being. Instead, she focused on what good news came out of talking to Commander Westlake. Mack's entire team escaped. It meant John was safe somewhere. Maddie laid down on the brown grass, thanking God that he was alive. Maddie looked up at the purple sky, wondering if John was looking at the sky wherever he was and looking for her.

Thank you for making the snippet so it was very readable. The excerpt was most interesting. Also I love your crumpled paper and eraser half way down. From all this I perceive you are creative, thoughtful, playful, and a very good writer. And very familiar. Either you have been or will be on my site.
