For Pride month, I’m posting daily from the first chapter. Pre-order links below.
The story continues…
“Your ship is adorable,” Celeste said. “I’m quite jealous.”
Ani gasped. Did she imagine Captain Bratt wanted Endurance as a shuttle, her private chariot to carry her from one end of the behemoth to the other?
“Yours is . . . impressive,” Lyn said.
“That it is.”
Lyn sensed Captain Bratt wasn’t completely buying the “bigger is better” superiority of the opulent Aphrodite. She was beginning to like this woman.
“We should get together for drinks some time,” Celeste continued. “After this Grand Tour.” A hint of annoyance with those last two words. Definitely liking this woman.
Lyn could empathize. The Grand Tour was pure marketing. Anyone with the time and money could take the tour whenever they wanted. Her boss, Omara, for example. But the alignment was ripe for the masses. A tour could be squeezed into less than three months, and companies had rushed ships through production to be ready.
“Will you be stopping at any of the moons?” Lyn asked.
“Alas, we have too many passengers for surface excursions. Strictly observing from afar, I’m afraid.”
