Congratulations to Jenn Nixon on her new science fiction release, MIND: The Beginning. Jenn is another great Crescent Moon Press author. I’m excited to be part of her blog tour and I have a fun excerpt to share. First let’s find out more about the book.
After Dina Ranger loses telepathic contact with her brother, she breaks into his apartment and stumbles onto a special government unit responsible for monitoring the psychic population. She’s offered a job where she can use her psionic gifts to help people.
Stranded on earth over a hundred years ago, Liam of Shria is searching for a metal needed to repair his ship when he finds Dina, a telepathic investigator, and narrowly saves her from an exploding alien pod. Together, they uncover a plot to rebuild an ancient weapon and discover the truth behind Dina’s abilities while unlocking dangerous secrets about the alien presence on earth.
Can they stop a powerful weapon meant to enslave the human race? Can their relationship survive the secrets of the past or will it tear them apart?
Excerpt from MIND: The Beginning
The woman’s phone rang for the second time in ten minutes. Someone really wanted to talk to her. Considering it was five in the morning, he assumed it was one of the two men she’d been with at the visitor’s center. Liam had an inkling she needed to answer the next call.
“Going to have to wake her…” He crossed the motel room and shook Dina’s shoulder. She mumbled, rolled away, and stretched her legs down the bed. Come on, wake up.
I’m awake, get out of my head. “And stop staring at my ass.”
“Did that earlier when I put you to bed.”
“Oh, ha, you’re a funny alien.” She blinked, the expression on her face changing slowly as she moved to the edge of the bed and sat up. “This is all real; it’s not some psi ability.”
“Frankly, so does the vast majority of intelligent evolved life out there. We’re all made up of the same bits and pieces of the universe. Those shows you humans entertain yourselves with are so far off base.” Liam smirked, thinking of all the fantastically bizarre creatures science-fiction had turned out over the years.
“We all look the same?”
“Not the same, similar. Various differences, skin tone, hair and eyes, appendage length, shape—”
“Powers? You were invisible, teleported, what else can you do?”
“A lot. Most humanoids have psionic traits in their genetics, only some develop depending on their planetary conditions and evolution. I come from one of the older, more advanced planets in the universe.”
“Okay, information overload, let’s take it down a notch.”
“We’re going to be interrupted shortly anyway.”
Dina’s phone rang. Her eyes expanded wide. “You’re a precog too?”
“No,” he replied with a chuckle. “Third phone call. That’s why I woke you. I figure it’s important.”
Author Bio: Jenn’s love of writing started the year she received her first diary and Nancy Drew novel. Throughout her teenage years, she kept a diary of her personal thoughts and feelings but graduated from Nancy Drew to other mystery suspense novels.
