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

Power and Opinions.

Hi folks,

Words can have a great deal of power, and words well written even more so.  I try to use my words to entertain, to carry the reader from this world of stress to a different world, give them an adventure, take them away for a few hours.  Sometimes I get it right, and sometimes I don’t.  This time I think I got it right.  I know each person experiences a story differently, and that experience can be good or bad.  Here’s a couple of reviews of The Oregon Incident which tell me that, in these folks opinion, I got it right.

 Wow November 12, 2017
I’ve got to say this one brought tears to my eyes, yes cried like a baby, but it’s such a good story.  Book five is just as good as the other four, great characters and the new characters are just as interesting.
What a great series November 15, 2017
This, as all the rest of the Children of the Wild, was a great story. Familiar characters and new characters all blending into new experiences. Lady Hawk is turning into a very strong character in her own right. This story brings Mobutu’s actions back into focus. Touching once again with the atrocities of his madness and bringing the wolves & vampires to the front defending themselves and the humans.
Get your copy today folks, cause I’m already working on the next book in the series.  Remember to drop a comment and sign up for the newsletter.  This will enter you for the chance to win a spot in the next book of the series as a character.
Enjoy

Yep, She Did It Again.

Hey folks,

Well, she did it again.  The publisher put up Novan Witch for $0.99.  I have no idea how long the sale will last, so grab a copy today.

Novan Witch by Prudence MacLeod

e-book

Got it, okay great, now before you start reading, let me tell you how it came to be.  I had an idea for a series about a race of super humans.  As I began to work on it I realized I had way too much back story, so I decided to make the back story a novel on it’s own.  So far so good, but I was barely a few chapters in when I realized the back story would need more than one book to do it right.  The result?  The back story went five novels, but now I think I’ve got it.

Yes, in the end the Novan Witch became the lead in for an entire series, a series that was written as a back story for another series. (which I have yet to write.)

So, that’s it, the story behind the story.  Now, go ahead and enjoy the story.

The Hawk Speaks

Hey y’all,

I’m Dr. Rhonda Stockman, or Ronni as most folks call me. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a were-hawk.  That means I can change into a hawk any time I want to.  Whoa, before you go thinking this is all super cool, let me tell you, it’s not all sugar and sweet tea.  For those of you who want to know how this happened to me, that story is told in The Vampire’s Lair.  This one:

e-book

So, if you haven’t read that one yet, grab a copy and find out how I became… well … me.  Okay, the real reason I’m here today is to tell you the rest of the story, what happened to me after I became the were-hawk, is about to be published.  Very soon now you will be able to get my story and the story of Igor, the young Russian were-wolf.   Oohhh I’m getting so excited… Here’s a little peek at what’s coming in the new story.

Clara sighed again and looked at her hands. “I’ve been studying your DNA,” she admitted.

“And?”

“I’ve found something strange quite active in it.  I’ve only ever seen it before in Torvil and the vampires.  The werewolves don’t have that marker.”

“Clara, what are you trying to tell me here?”

“I believe you’re immortal, like the vampires, Ronni.  You’ll never grow old, you’ll revive if killed, and all injuries will heal at super speed.  I believe you’re immortal and indestructible.”

Rocked back by that announcement, Rhonda swallowed hard and looked at her friend with wide eyes.  “Are you certain of this? Of course you are, or you wouldn’t have said anything.  Wow.  Holy shit.  Wow.  So, now what am I supposed to do?  Clara, why did you even tell me this?”

Okay, it’s Ronni again.  I can’t tell you more right now or I’ll get in trouble.

Bye y’all

Ronni

Werewolves

Hi folks,

Last time I told you a bit about my adventure into Vampire stories. I was surprised (and delighted) at its reception and requests for more. With that in mind I decided to have a go at expanding that world by introducing werewolves. Thus began the Children of the Wild series. Book two is the story of the meeting between the vampires and the werewolves. Here it is:

Children Of The Wolf Front

e-book

Get your copy today. Why? Because the sequel will be out soon. I’ll tell you more about it later, but for now, here’s a peek inside the Children of the Wolf.

Then he is dead, Peter,” Ella replied kindly. “It was a long fall and he hit the ice then slipped beneath it. He did not resurface.”

Someone must take word to his father. I guess that task falls to me.”

How do you know these people, Peter?” asked the king.

Long ago, Sire, I was stalking a deer high in the mountains. I did not know a wolf pack was hunting too. We all charged at once. I had never seen another shapeshifter who was not one of us, and they had not seen any other except themselves. While we were looking each other over, the deer got up and ran away.” Peter smiled and chuckled softly at the memory.

Their leader stepped back and changed into a man, so I did also. They led me back to their camp and I spent several days learning to speak their language. It is very old and no other alive knows it, except their small band. They can also speak a dialect of Russian.

 

Okay, there’s a hint of what’s inside the covers of Children of the Wolf. Remember it’s preceded by Immortal Tigress.  e-book

 

All right, next time I’ll give you a few hints of what’s in book three of the series, which should be out soon.

Vampires

Hi folks,

The subject of today’s post is vampires. A few years ago vampires were all the rage, but the stories just weren’t quite grabbing me. A friend kept challenging me to write a vampire story with a new twist. Sure. Nothing to it, right?

One day I was watching a TV show with a saber toothed tiger loose in the modern world. The cat’s powerful, yet almost liquid movements caught my eye, Okay, now you see where this post is going. this book was the result of that challenge and inspiration.

Immortal-2BTigress-2Bfront

e-book

Here’s a peek inside:

In the beginning there was need. She was only dimly aware of the world around her, a world filled with wonder, and yet fraught with danger. She was only aware of need; the need for food, for drink, safety from attack, fire for warmth and protection.

As she grew there came a new need, a need to mate, but that was not to be, for she had grown too tall and strong too quickly, and thus she was shunned by the others. Eventually she became insistent and was driven away from the clan, for her sheer size and strength frightened them.

Okay, that’s the first two paragraphs. Get your copy today.

Why?

Because there’s a sequel, plus I’ve just written the third in the series. Look for it to appear in the coming days.
