The ship of legends…

The future is set for Lt. Commander Aden Pendar, son of a Hyrathian Duke. Poised to secure his own command and marriage to the queen’s daughter, he’ll stop at nothing to achieve his goals.

But when the Alliance denies Hyrath’s claim on the planet of Kavil and declares war on their world, Aden finds his plans in disarray. Entrenched in battle and told he won’t make captain, Aden’s world begins to collapse. How will he salvage his career and future during Hyrath’s darkest hour?

One chance remains–the Dragon. Lost many years prior, the legendary ship’s unique weapon is Hyrath’s only hope. Can Aden find the Dragon, save his people, and prove he’s capable of commanding his own ship?

IWSG... Baring my soul

It's April... Happy A-Z Challenge, guys. My A post will be along a little later, but there's a reason I'm doing my Insecure group post first...

I'm completely insecure about my challenge entries.

I'm doing flash fiction/vignette/a bit of random rambling in fiction form - and I know, because people have told me, that several people are really looking forward to reading some new fiction from me.

But the problem is... all the fiction I've ever put out has been edited to death - continually being tweaked for several months/years - and my A-Z posts only came into being at the beginning of March. They are raw, open, stark. I feel like I'm baring my soul!

Okay, I'm done being a wimp. I'm going to let them out into the world now...

Today's challenge post will be posted at 8am GMT; the rest of the month will be posted at 6am GMT.
