GENRE: Sci-fi/Fantasy

 

Sherrie will be awarding a $25 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

 

Book Description:

 

Telepathy creates as many problems as it solves, as most of the members of the secret organization x0 would admit. When new member Lola discovers another group of telepaths with a completely different approach, those problems multiply at the speed of thought.

 

Soon, Lola’s family and friends are in danger. Lucky for her, she’s not your average budding psychic. Each person with whom she is close has a special gift of their own. That’s good, because it’s going to take every power they possess to keep this other group from succeeding with their plan to eradicate x0.

 

One Too Excerpt

One Too book coverGabriel contacted Warren late Sunday night to let him know that the teacher Maurice had been found. Warren could not have been more pleased. He became less so when he was informed that the teacher, too, was surrounded by a wall of fuzzy but impermeable energy.

 

“This group is larger and stronger than I feared,” he fretted.

 

“Maybe not,” Gabriel consoled him. “The wall around the woman has weakened now, which means that they’ve had to move their resources to protect the elder.”

 

“Well then, get more info from her,” Warren barked.

 

“It’s still a strong wall,” Gabriel countered. “And we’re not sure she has all that much else to offer us. We are encouraged that they can only do so much at once.”

 

“Yes, of course, that much is good news. You do fine work, Gabriel—I don’t mean to imply otherwise. I just think you’re being hindered by the careful way we are going at this. How much more effective would you be if you had that old man sitting in a chair right in front of you?”

 

There was a second of silence. Warren supposed that Gabriel was trying to read his mind.

 

“I don’t think kidnapping anyone is a good idea at this point,” he said.

 

“Bullshit. It doesn’t have to be kidnapping. I can find a way to finesse it. We need information. Would having him in a room with you help you get it?”

 

“Of course it would. A lot.”

 

“I thought so,” Warren said. “Then this nonsense has gone on long enough. I’m sending a car to your place. It will be there at 6 a.m. sharp. Most of the Entelechy is still here in New York, so take two of your best, most trusted monads with you. Pack bags, you’ll be flying out tomorrow on my private jet, probably to San Antonio. A driver will meet your plane, he’ll take you to where you’ll find this Maurice. There is nothing else you need to know.”

 

Warren didn’t pause long enough for Gabriel to object.

 

“There will be some muscle there already, totally at your disposal. It shouldn’t be hard to break him, Gabriel—he’s an old man. I want to know everything about this organization. Use every tool possible and do whatever you need to do.”

 

Author Bio and Links

Sherrie Cronin Sherrie grew up in Western Kansas thinking that there was no place in the universe more fascinating than outer space. After her mother vetoed astronaut as a career ambition, she went on to study journalism and physics in hopes of becoming a science writer.

 

She published her first science fiction short story long ago, and then waited a lot of tables while she looked for inspiration for the next story. When it finally came,  it declared to her that it had to be whole book, nothing less. One night, while digesting this disturbing piece of news, she drank way too many shots of ouzo with her boyfriend. She woke up thirty-one years later demanding to know what was going on.

 

The boyfriend, who she had apparently long since married, asked her to calm down and  explained that in a fit of practicality she had gone back to school and gotten a degree in geophysics and had spent the last 28 years interpreting seismic data in the oil industry. The good news, according to Mr. Cronin, was that she had found it at least mildly entertaining and ridiculously well-paying  The bad news was that the two of them had still managed to spend almost all of the money.

 

Apparently she was now Mrs. Cronin, and the further good news was that they had produced three wonderful children whom they loved dearly, even though to be honest that is where a lot of the money had gone. Even better news was that Mr. Cronin  turned out to be a warm-hearted, encouraging sort who was happy to see her awake and ready to write. “It’s about time,” were his exact words.

 

Sherrie Cronin discovered that over the ensuing decades Sally Ride had already managed to become the first woman in space and apparently had done a fine job of it. No one, however, had written the book that had been in Sherrie’s head for decades. The only problem was, the book informed her sternly that it had now grown into a six book collection. Sherrie decided that she better start writing it before it got any longer. She’s been wide awake ever since, and writing away.
