Keir: Book One of Redemption
A demon waiting to die…
An outcast reviled for his discolored skin and rumors of black magic, Keirlan de Corizi sees no hope for redemption. Imprisoned beneath the palace that was once his home, the legendary ‘Blue Demon of Adalucien’ waits for death to finally free him of his curse. But salvation comes in an unexpected guise.
A woman determined to save him.
Able to cross space and time with a wave of her hand, Tarquin Secker has spent eternity on a hopeless quest. Drawn by a compulsion she can’t explain, she risks her apparent immortality to save Keir, and offers him sanctuary on her home-world, Lyagnius. But Quin has secrets of her own.
When Keir mistakenly unleashes the dormant alien powers within him and earns exile from Lyagnius, Quin chooses to stand by him. Can he master his newfound abilities in time to save Quin from the darkness that seeks to possess her?
Available on Amazon and other retailers.
A stay-at-home mum of three who spent twelve years working as an Analytical Chemist in a Metals and Minerals laboratory, Pippa Jay bases her stories on a lifetime addiction to science-fiction books and films. Somewhere along the line a touch of romance crept into her work and refused to leave. In between torturing her various characters, she spends the odd free moments indulging in freestyle street dance and studying the Dark Side of the Force. Although happily settled in historical Colchester in the UK with her husband of 22 years and three little monsters, she continues to roam the rest of the Universe in her head.
Q. When did you realize SFR was a genre?
A. When I first met Laurie A Green, creator of the Science Fiction Romance Brigade in 2010. Until that point I thought I’d just written scifi that happened to have a romance in it too.
Q. What SFR book had the most impact on your reading and/or writing?
A. Ugh, it’s very hard to pin it down to a single book, but probably The Crystal Singer by Anne McCaffrey. It’s always been my favourite SFR (yes, even over her dragon books), and her books had a very big influence over my writing.
Q. Do your books lean more SF or Romance?
A. Mine tend to range between the two extremes, but probably a smidge more toward the SF than the R. I started off writing science fiction, so that’s more where my interest and preference lies.
What Pippa would like to ask readers:
Have you read my books yet? But my typically British reserve prevents me from actually saying that. 😛
