Maria (MariaMelee) | 2 comments Hi! I'm new to the group. My YA sci-fi/romance novella, Sunblood, was released today through Torquere Books/Prizm Books.

Caleb, sub-citizen 45201, is a psychic slave in the massive biodome known as the City -- the only civilized community left on his wasted planet. He can’t remember his life before he was taken to the City and experimented on by scientists trying to control his unusual gift.

Despite having no rights, Caleb knows his life isn’t all that bad. His Keeper, Daniel, secretly allows him to play in the minds of the City’s inhabitants. Caleb likes Daniel -- probably more than he should -- and once in a while the cafeteria has some delicious cookies.

Caleb’s small freedoms don’t seem like all that much until even those are threatened. When Caleb is targeted by those who fear his powers, he discovers exactly how much he has to lose.

Hi Kaje! It's more paranormal/SF, set in a post-apocalyptic world. The focus is more on the paranormal elements (psychic powers) and the characters than the SF elements.
