An End and a Beginning

Hi folks,

I’m talking about my writing process again today.  This time I’ll explore a bit about the beginnings and the ending of a series, how I get them going, and how I bring them to a close.

Actually, I don’t have all that much to do with it.  The characters come to me, tell me the stories, and I write them down.  I’ve written a number of series, a couple of trilogies, and a few stand alones that eventually morphed into something more.  Case in point, the Children of the Goddess Series began with the stand alone, Lady Blue, written to draw attention to the horror of enforced child prostitution.  This eventually grew into a series of six books, and #7, the final chapter in the series in now a finished first draft.

The Children of the Wild began as my take on the popular vampire theme.  I gave them a different beginning, and a different way of life.  People asked for more, the characters asked for more, and so it began.  Race the Wind is the latest book in that series.  Find it here:

Amazon   Apple   Google Play

This series is showing no signs of wanting to be finished, so you can look for many more stories from the Children of the Wild.

So, now with the tales from the Children of the Goddess coming to a close, I’m waiting to see who shows up next to tell me of their experiences, I mean, besides Lady Hawk.  That girl has dozens more stories to tell.

While I’m waiting for the next long story arc to show up and demand to be told,  perhaps I’ll work on a few stand alone tales.  What do you suggest?

 

Sneak Peek at a New Book

Hi there,

Rhonda Stockman here, known as the Lady Hawk.  Prudence is a busy girl these days, so I’ve commandeered her blog to give you a sneak peek into the next adventure in the Children of the Wild series, starring yours truly.  The entire book should become available in the next few days.  The book will be called Race the Wind, the cover will look something like this:

Now. here’s a peek inside:

The queen of the vampires awakened with a start, breathing deeply as she tried to shake off the spell of the vision.  “Sally, my beloved, what is it?”  Concerned, the king took her gently into his arms.  “Hush now, I’ve got you, you’re safe.  Tell me what you saw.”

She snuggled against him, retreating into the protection of his arms.  “I saw a time of danger, Harald, danger of discovery.  Somehow, a horse is at the center of it, but it is Igor and Rhonda who are the key.”

“Igor and Rhonda?”

“Yes, if they can’t hold true to each other, all will be lost.  If they can, we have a solid chance, but it’s the horse that will make or break it.”

“So what do we do?”

“Nothing, Harald, my love.  There’s nothing we can do.  It’s going to be up to the Hawk and the Wolf; our future lies in their hands, their ability to function, the strength of their love for each other.  This will be their greatest test, and all our fates hang in the balance.

 

Okay, so there you go, got your curiosity up yet?  Cool.  Keep watching this blog for further updates.  As soon as the book goes live I’ll post the links where you can find it.  If you like this series you’ll love this latest installment.

Bye for now

Turn it Around!

Hi folks,

I’ve written before about how I once attempted to write a self-help book, but failed to finish it.  It was boring to say the least.  However, I believed in what I had to offer, and I still do.  Back then I changed directions and put the information into a number of sweet romance stories, primarily two.  I present to you now the first of those two stories.

e-book

Go ahead, check it out, a good story and lots of other interesting stuff is just waiting for you.  All in time for the New Year’s resolutions. (tee hee)

Now, having said that, I hope to have the second of those two stories ready for you sometime in January, so keep an eye on this blog for updates.

 

Okay, now I have gifts to wrap, so, bye for now. 🙂

The First One

Hi folks,

I’ll tell you where it began, and how, but it was long ages before she arrived here in our midst.  The blood drinker, vampire.  How did she become what she is, how did she get this way?  It was a collision of events, and against seemingly impossible odds, it happened.  The first immortal was created.  It would be millenia before another appeared.

To get a small sense of the endless years, the loneliness, the hunger, the driving need for blood, you’ll have to read her story.   Therein you will learn of how she came to be, and of how she managed to survive into this age.  You will also get a glimpse of what it will take for her to continue to exist unseen, her and her offspring, for she is no longer the lone vampire.

e-book

Originally this was meant to be a stand alone book, but so many of you encouraged me to write more I did a sequel.  Yeah, you guessed it, I’m currently working on book five of the series.  We hope to get it out this fall.

So, go ahead, check out the woman from the distant past.  Step out of this world and into another for a few hours, share the adventure with her.

Until next time,

Bless,

Pru

Hard Way to End a War

However, the Elves aren’t completely alone out there, and they will have many encounters before the snows melt in spring.  Want to know what happens?  Here’s where to get your copy of A Winter Siege.

e-book

Get your copy today, folks.  This is a great weekend read.

So, I’m back to work on another offering from the Children of the Wild.  Bye for now.

Free!! Books Free!!!

Hi folks,

So, now that I have your attention, let me tell you the deal and the catch. http://shadoepublishing.com/  is looking for a few ARC readers.  Here’s how it works.  You agree to read the book before it gets published.  When it goes live you have to write a review of said book, post it on Amazon, Goodreads, or wherever you like, and post links to it on social media.  Not such a bad deal at that, right?

Oh, and yes, some of my books will become available to the ARC readers as well as the books from many of the other great writers who publish with Shadoe Publishing.  I expect the third Elvish Chronicle will be one of them.

So, if you’re interested, check it out here: FB ARC Readers

 

Okay, now back to work for me.

Wow! Check it!

Hi Folks,

Well, it seems to be true, the publisher has put Lady Blue up for sale at $.99 and has marked down the rest of my books as well.  Still not sure how I feel about all this, but, I’m trusting that she knows what she’s doing.  Anyway, here a chance to get some bargains.  Since she’s on sale, why not start with Lady Blue?  Here’s the latest review of the book.

What a captivating read. The author has done a marvelous job with her characters, the settings, and the plot. This is one you will not want to put down. The action in this book is amazing and so real to life.

Okay, I can’t waste time puzzling over this development, I’ve got books to write.  Speaking of books, an old favorite has had a new edit, a new cover, and will soon be re-released.  Keep an eye out for At Loose Ends.  Oh, and in a few weeks the latest in the Elvish Chronicles will be released.  Keep an eye out for A Winter Siege.

All right, must get back to work on another Children of the Wild story.  Later folks.

Unexpected Action

Hey Folks,

I recently heard that my publisher http://shadoepublishing.com  has suddenly dropped the price on all my books, even going so far as to drop my best seller to $0.99.  I have to tell you, this move caught me by surprise.  I’ve always thought of her as a rational woman, but there you go.

So, go ahead and check out any and all my books and see for yourself.  http://prudencemacleod.com  Now’s the time to grab a bargain while I try to talk sense to …

Sweet Romance

Hi folks,

Years ago when I started writing more seriously, I wrote a number of sweet romances.  I wrote them for friends, to help them step out of a stressful world if only for a few hours.  I hadn’t originally intended them for publication, but was eventually convinced to self publish them.  Recently I’ve been dusting them off again, giving them new edits, new covers, and re-issuing them with http://shadoepublishing.com.

Here’s the latest.

e-book

Sometimes a bit of sweet romance is all you need.  Check out Second Chance.

What’s it about?  It’s about a woman who dies of old age then reincarnates with a full set of memories, a second chance to build a better life.  Go on, check it out, you know you want to.

What’s on the horizon?  A new Elvish Chronicle will be appearing in the near future.  The manuscript is in the hands of the editor right now.  Stay tuned.

So, once you’ve read Second Chance, let me know what you think.  What do you think of the idea of sweet romance?  Does it have a place in today’s world?

Vampires, Werewolves, Secret Agents, and More
