Excerpt Tour and Giveaway: One of Two by SR Cronin

One of Two
by S.R. Cronin 


GENRE: Sci-fi Fantasy



Telepathy creates as many problems as it solves, as everyone in the secret organization x0 would admit. When new member Lola discovers another group of telepaths with a totally 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 she is close to has a special gift of their own. That’s good, because it’s going to take every power they possess to stop these others from tearing apart x0.


EXCERPTS (Exclusive Excerpt):

Lola felt nervous when Olumiji contacted her from his Monday morning in Japan. A Japanese woman Lola had only heard of, and an older man from India she’d met once, were with him. He told her how Warren Moore was certain x0 existed, thanks to the surprising story told by a private detective in Houston.

Lola’s eyes widened as she listened.

“Yes. I did try to scare that man away. He was investigating Zane. I don’t remember my words, but I was desperate to protect my child. I figured he’d decide I was some kind of nut and had got info on him another way. I mean, who thinks somebody will believe you when you say something so outrageous?”

All three telepaths knew Lola felt awful, and Olumiji knew she was about to feel worse.

“Lola, the PI had a full report on you from 2009. He has a reputation for taking cases with dubious ethics. It’s our bad luck Warren picked him or we wouldn’t be having this conversation.”

Yet we are. Lola felt it from the other two telepaths.

“Was there anything particularly worrisome in his report?” she asked. She knew the answer before she heard it.

“There is lot about Maurice. You were meeting him often then. Harold was hoping you were having an affair or, better yet, prostituting yourself, but even he had to conclude it seemed more like Maurice was teaching you something.”

“S--t. They found Maurice.”


AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Sherrie Roth grew up in Western Kansas thinking 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 and then waited a lot of tables while she looked for inspiration for the next tale. When it finally came, it declared to her it had to be a 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. He 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 she found it at least mildly entertaining and ridiculously well-paying. The bad news was 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 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 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 it had grown into a six book collection. Sherrie decided she better start writing before it got any longer. She's been wide awake ever since, and writing away.
