Hey folks! Not participated in SFFSat for a little while so thought I should come back to the family, as it were.
Today, I'm letting you have a ten-sentence sneaky peek at Book 2 in the Quality Times series, titled 'The Grandparent Trap.'
Brief Blurby Bit - The elderly are going missing in a small English town. A new bus company, Journey's End, has started operating in the area. The missing were all last seen boarding the buses, but never reached their destination. Who are the mysterious folk behind the Journey's End and what do they want with the town's pensioners? Intergalactic space and time adventurers, Quality and Tim, vow to find out. It's still in first draft form so except the sentences to be poorly-executed. I'm all about getting the story down when it comes to first drafts.

Ach, okay, not quite ten sentences but I do like to leave you on a cliff-hanger, sort of. :D
