I’m working on Space Rogues 3 and am really enjoying it. I feel like the crew is really coming together. I finished a scene last night that I loved, so here’s a bit of it!

Oh! Before you go any further, SPOILER WARNING FOR SPACE ROGUES 2.


Seriously, spoilers


Not kidding!


“That was me,” Gabe says, walking into the lounge from the hatch that leads to engineering. “You and Bennie were unable to walk, so I carried you back to the ship and put you to bed.”

“Uh. I woke up naked.” Wil says, starting to blush.

“It was my understanding from Bennie that you sleep in the nude.” Gabe offers, coming to stand near the kitchenette.

Zephyr stifles a laugh and Wil makes a sour looking face, “Wait. One, why are you and Bennie discussing my sleeping habits? Two, that doesn’t mean you needed to undress me.” He looks around, “God, this is nightmare fuel.”

Now Zephyr can’t control her laughter.

Gabe tilts his head, “Forgive me, Captain. I was simply attempting to make sure you were comfortable. I assure you, your privacy is paramount, I would never discuss anything I saw—-”

“—- You mean, like when you and Bennie chat about how I sleep?” Wil interrupts.

“That was an isolated incident I assure. Bennie was traumatized and needed to—-”

“—- Traumatized? By what?” Wil is turning a shade of red that Zephyr has never seen.

“What’s going on?” Maxim asks, coming in from the hatch leading to the crew bunks.

Before Wil or Gabe can answer, Zephyr does, “Wil got super drunk and Gabe brought him back to the ship and undressed him.” She takes a bite of bacon.


I’m still very hopeful that Space Rogues 3 is out and in your hot little hands this winter.
