Ever met a "Star Guide"? A Sci-Fi Author, to boot!

So, what is a Star Guide? See below in bio -  What does a "star guide" do in her spare time?

Answer: she pens thrilling Sci-Fi novelettes.



In her own words...   


About M. Pax: Inspiring the words I write, I spend my summers as a star guide at Pine Mountain Observatory in stunning Central Oregon where I live with the husband unit and two loving cats. I write speculative fiction mostly and have a slight obsession with giant, man-eating reptiles and Jane Austen. I know, they don’t really go together, but it’d be interesting to insert Godzilla in the middle of Pride & Prejudice.



And so we come to the fun thing "M" does in her spare time. 



Description for Semper Audacia : Alone. Leda is the last living member of the brigade, the sole defender of her world. War took everyone she knew, leaving her in the company of memories and ghosts. Or is it madness?

The siren blares. The enemy is coming. Or is it? The approaching vessel isn't a friendly design, but it answers with the correct code. Leda must figure out whether the arrival is reinforcements or the final assault. In an aging flyer, she ventures out to meet her world's fate, the last stand.

Francine, I love this simple introduction to MPax's novelette. Nice to read more about her also. I'm very enthusiastic about this and can't wait to get reading.

BTW I hope more e-pub authors promote on Indie Witch. All in one place. Easier to go shopping!

Yep, I just luv Indie authors, and will help all I can in any way possible to promote those whom go it alone.

If we don't as fellow bloggers who else will...
