Friday Fictioneers: You Said

Thursday afternoon:


You said I could pick any day.

I didn’t think you’d pick this weekend.

Any day.

Okay, but a balloon?

You said I could pick the venue.

I though the courthouse, a little country church, a cathedral . . .

You said I could have my dream wedding.

But a balloon? I’m scared of heights.

Don’t look down.


With much fear and tribulation, Ralph showed up at the designated field. It was empty.

So where’s the balloon?

I thought you are afraid of heights.

Some 20 came running out of the trees yelling, “Surprise! Happy birthday.”

Wedding’s not until spring.

This is not your typical science fiction novel. It’s set on a planet in the Pegasus Constellation, but there are no monster aliens, and no wars in space.

This trilogy is about people like Lieutenant Jessica M. Hewitt, Rona Montgomery, and High Priest Adumie who, like all of us, struggle with self-worth, rejection, and love relationships. 

This trilogy might just be your next read.
