Good day and or night, afternoon? Hi, I’m Jayne and I write about bodice ripping ninjas in space.
They rip their own bodices.
I have been a pulp serial fan since reading my first Doc Savage novel. My tongue firmly planted in my cheek, I set out to write my own take and found Corrie Scott, the heroine of my first book in serial form. The Solar Flame series first book, Freedom Bound is a reflection of that boom-pow-kickass hero—but with boobs.
The Solar Flame universe is within a new genre and an old one at the same time: Speculative Fiction Romance. Expect SciFi, Paranormal, Steampunk, and maybe even some Dieselpunk as the series goes on.
Why serial fiction? Why not? We are in a world of sound bites and no time for long luxurious baths with a book and a glass of wine. Well, sometimes. But mostly we only have time for stolen moments with a good story— a story that we want to pick up again and again. I hope that Freedom Bound achieves this by offering a bit of nostalgic serialized fiction with sexy times. I did say romance, right?
The second book in the Solar Flame universe is the full-length novella, Still Life. It’s currently part of an anthology called Baby It’s Cold in Space and guess what? It takes place on an ice planet. Go figure. Still Life comes out on its own in March.

The klaxons screamed. Lights flashed an urgent red tattoo in time with each new bleating beat. The best place for Lieutenant Corrie Scott, and for everyone else, was in her fighter not the officers mess. She kept her cool, each long stride propelled her through the corridor. Her mind fixed upon a destination. If she could get to her squad, they could defend the ship, and survive to fight another day.
“ALERT! INTRUDER ALERT!”
Drakkin slag! That was fast.
They were boarding.
New problem. Rethink. React. Stay alive. If I don’t get to my unit I’ll be worse than dead. I’ll be hostage fodder. In that moment of realization, a quiet pall settled, pushing the chaos out of focus.
Corrie strode through the corridors, smashing herself against the side bulkheads as the damage crews sped through the center. Her hipbone felt something beneath it, a handle attached to the round hatch cover. Maintenance tube. Her ear against the hatch, she listened intently. Nothing? Good. They aren’t coming up through the tubes. Grabbing hold of the handle, she pulled the hatch open. The wave of nauseating stench hit her like a meteor.
She came close to emptying her stomach on the gangway grating.
“RED ALERT, ALL PERSONNEL! REPORT TO YOUR DUTY STATIONS! THIS IS CAPTAIN KORNWALL. ALL HANDS! SCRAMBLE FIGHTERS.”
