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

Who is Lady Blue?

Hi folks,

Last time I introduced you to some of Lady Hawk’s history.  People have been asking for some background on Lady Blue, so, here’s what Penny will let me tell.

She was born to a poor family, named Penny, as her father said the birth cost him his last cent.  That attitude continued until her fifth birthday when he didn’t come home from work.  Penny Preston never saw or heard from her father again.

After her father abandoned them, Penny’s mother began drinking heavily.  All her bitterness and resentment were delivered to Penny in the form of unrelenting emotional abuse.  School was no better, for she was bullied and mocked for her obvious poverty.  By the time Penny was fifteen she had contemplated suicide several times, came close twice.

When Penny was sixteen she fell down a steep embankment in the highlands of Scotland and there she inadvertently awaken something that had slept for long ages, and she was changed forever.  She became Lady Blue, an elusive vigilante who fights the bullies, defends the weak, and isn’t gentle about it.  You  can find the rest of her story here:

e-book

I didn’t go into a lot of this history when I wrote Lady Blue’s story, after all, it’s her story of life after the change came upon her.  Any and all of us who survived child abuse can tell you, every damn one of us dreamed of, and prayed for, that elusive supreme being to come and grant us the power, the power to make the pain stop, the bullying, and the emotional abuse, to give us the power to make ourselves safe.  Lady Blue’s story is one way that might look if it happened.

Okay folks, that’s a look at Lady Blue.  Go ahead, check out the rest of her story.

Now, on to other business.  I’m really hoping to get Race the Wind out this month.  Race the Wind will be the sixth book in the Children of the Wild series, more adventures of the Lady Hawk.

So, back to work for me.

Bright Blessings

Messing With It

Hey folks,

Well, I’m here to tell you, boredom can make you do strange things.  In my own case it caused me to do something I thought I’d never do.  I messed with my website.  When I first had it built it was a thing of beauty, but, over time WordPress updated this and that and not everything behaved like it was supposed to.  So I broke down and messed with it.

So, here’s where I ask you to take a poke around, see what you like, what you don’t, and let me know which is which.  All feedback is greatly appreciated.  Here’s the page for one of my favorites, start there.

Okay, back to the writing stuff.  I’m currently working on the latest novel in the Children of the Wild series.  With any luck at all you’ll get to see it in February.

As Promised, It’s Here!

Hi folks,

Well, my last post gave you an idea of what was coming.  Now you can see for yourself.  Deliberate Love is here, and here’s how to find it.  Give it a read and let me know what you think of the whole concept.

The Book

 

So, there we are, the second of the (self-help) books. hehehe

On to other news, we’re hoping to have a new installment in the Children of the Wild series soon.  I’ll keep you posted on that.

So long for now

Watch Out!

Hi folks,

Recently I told you about trying and failing to write a self help book, and how I put the principals into two romance novels.  The first of which is Ten Day Turnaround.  Get a better look at it here:

look deeper here

 

Now we’re about to bring you the second of the two novels.  This one stirred up some controversy and ruffled a few feathers the first time I published it.  Yes we updated it, but I didn’t change the story.  Why not?  Here’s why.

I first wrote this story in the early years of this century to honor two couple of my acquaintance who have deliberately flown in the face of conventional thinking.  Couple number one is a man and woman who have been married many years, have children, several grandchildren, and perhaps even great grandchildren by now.  He is admittedly homosexual. But to avoid public censure, he married the girl from next door.  They dote on each other, love each other deeply, and he swears he has no regrets.

The second couple is two divorcees who were friends, one lesbian, and the other not.  They moved in together, became lovers, and are still together many years later.  Again, they love each other deeply.

Both couples asked for anonymity and I have respected that, opting instead to weave what they taught me into the story.  Please enjoy and know my only agenda in writing this was to honor these brave and heroic people.

 

Well, that’s it for this time.  Keep an eye out for Deliberate Love to appear for sale sometime next week.  (if the gods are willing)

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. 🙂

A Peek Inside

Hi folks,

I know it’s been a while, but I did promise you a new book, and as usual, there’ve been unforeseen delays.  Now we’re down to finalizing a cover.  Yes, I’ve been called a tease before, but I always come through in the end, right?  So, as you can see, I’m hard at work on the problem.

So, back to that teasing thing, here’s another peek under the covers of what’s coming next.

He sighed deeply and tapped his head back against the wall.  “You don’t know, do you?  You don’t know, and therefore you don’t understand.  Ah well.”  With a startling animal grace, he rose to his feet, stepped out of his shoes and tossed off his t-shirt.

“What the hell do you think you’re doing?”  Larise had taken a step back and assumed a defensive stance as he reached for his belt.  She nearly screamed as he dropped his jeans to the floor then shimmered into a huge wolf.  With her hand over her mouth, she stood staring at him, but he made no move at all.

There it is.  With any luck I’ll have that cover for you in a day or two, and shortly after that, the URLs where you can find it for sale.

 

So, keep an eye out for the next few days and I’ll keep you posted on what’s going on.  Oh, remember to sign up for our newsletter (the button is at the bottom of the page).  There’s all sorts of info there that I don’t share until much later elsewhere.
