Sweet Review

Hi folks,

Just thought I’d show you a review of Rise of the Queen.  Check this out.

For thousands of years the High Born Elves have languished in the chains of slavery, their great strength gone, their extra keen senses dulled, and their immortality broken. Somehow, in spite of their harsh master’s efforts, the royal line managed to survive. Now, with the aid of a deadly assassin, the heir is about to shake off the chains of slavery, expose the lies, and bring her people to freedom. And she has no idea the magnitude of the task she has undertaken.

e-book

Rise of the Queen is quite simply an astonishing novel that is wildly entertaining. As I read Rise of the Queen I could not resist reading it at all times; it was like this book was calling my name constantly because when I had to put it down I longed for it… yes, I am that addicted to this novel. Rise of the Queen encompasses everything great about literature, it has action and adventure, high fantasy and a steady, streamlined plot with brilliant prose… what is there not to love?!

Rise of the Queen follows Ariel, a  slave, however, Ariel was not destined to be a slave, but instead destined for greatness and when she escapes with an assassin, her path in life will soon become clear and unravel bit by bit for the reader to enjoy and sink their teeth into. The land in which Ariel lives is full of Elves but sadly this beautiful and magical species has been kept in chains for thousands of years as slaves but hope is on the horizon thanks to Ariel and the assassin and soon they will go on an epic adventure to free the land and restore peace and harmony and let me tell you now book lovers, it makes for excellent reading!

The story of the wonderful Rise of the Queen is one that I adore; I love the fact that we get to witness Ariel go on a magical and sometimes dangerous journey. Ariel is born a slave so to observe her as a character change and develop is fantastic and made for truly engrossing reading. The fantasy within this book too is out of this world and kept me turning the pages because unlike a lot of fantasy novels, this one was entirely unique and original! It is sad that so many fantasy novels seem to blend with each other so to read a book such as this one that is unique as well as brilliant is truly brilliant!

The author of Rise of the Queen is Prudence MacLeod and I have to confess now that I am obsessed with her literature! The beautiful descriptions courtesy of MacLeod is breath-taking and bedazzled me on more than one occasion. As I read this book, I truly felt a sense of urgency to reach the end and I believe this was because of the author’s exceptional talent to place me right in the novel and describe her scenes (particularly the action scenes), in perfect and mesmerizing descriptive detail.

As I am madly in love with Rise of the Queen and think it is a unique and incredible story I have no choice but to award this dazzling book Five Stars! What is so great about this book too is that it is the first in a three-part series so when you get addicted to this book, you will have two more to enjoy!

Thank you so much for reading book lovers! I appreciate it so much and love discussing wonderful books with all of you so please, comment below and let me know your thoughts on Rise of the Queen; do you see yourself reading this book? Let me know all of those brilliant thoughts of yours below! Thank you so much again for reading!

Lady Hawk

Hi folks,

I’ve been bantering with one of my characters on Facebook, and have been asked who she really is.  Okay, here’s the Lady Hawk.

She is Dr. Rhonda Stockman, veterinarian.   Rhonda was an emotionally abused woman who went into Veterinary Medicine so she could spend more time with animals than people.  As she neared thirty years of age she was still single, and there was little trace of the happy mischievous child she had been.

One fateful day she stopped to try to release a young hawk that was caught in some wires.  The hawk sank it’s beak into her arm just as there was an explosion.  She awakened high above the land, but not falling.

After days of terror, denial, and dozens of other emotions, she came to terms with the fact she was a bird.  At this point she noticed a woman and a bear on the ground.  The bear changed into a man, and then back again.  Rhonda followed them for weeks, hoping to learn the secret of controlling the change.  In time, she did.

When Rhonda was blended with the hawk she took on it’s fierce and independent nature.  Her mischievous side reappeared as well.  This is how we find her in The Hawk and the Wolf, but she first appeared in The Vampire’s Lair.

e-book

Sometime this month I hope to release the latest story in Rhonda’s adventures.  Keep watching this blog for a few teasers in the coming days.

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)

New Cover

Hi folks,

Look, here’s the cover for the book I’ve been giving you peeks at.  As soon as it goes live I’ll post the links so you can read the whole story.  What’s that?  You want another peek?  Well, okay, but first we all must admire the new cover, right?  There it is, that misty coastal mountain range.

 

Okay, here’s another peek:

Kylie had awakened as Ella rose from the bed.  Her head out the door, she saw as Ella entered Larise’s room.  She followed in time to see the tigress vanish through the window.  She hurried back and knocked on Igor’s door.

“What is it, Kylie?” asked Rhonda as she opened the door.

“Something’s happened.  Larise and Bran are gone, there’s blood in their room, and Ella’s on the trail.”

“Shit,” exclaimed Rhonda then she leaped skyward through the window with a piercing cry.

“Shit,” muttered Igor as he ran to Bran’s room.  A quick look around and he morphed into the wolf then leaped through the window.

“Sure,” muttered Kylie, “leave the human to pick up after you, bunch of shapeshifters.”  She began gathering up the discarded night clothes.

 

Okay, that’s the last peek.  The book should be available any day now and I promise to publish the links where you can find it.

All right, now for something different.  If any of you would like to be a character in the next book of this series, drop a comment on this blog and sign up for the newsletter.  One name will be chosen and the winner gets a cameo appearance, just Like Stan Lee in the Marvel Movies.

Also, watch for a new series coming in January.

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.

OMG, Look What’s Coming!

Hi folks,

I’ve been telling you about the Children of the Wild series, with The Hawk and The Wolf being the last in the series so far, well not for much longer.  Keep an eye out for The Oregon Incident, which should be here soon.

What’s it about? There’s something amiss in the mountains of Oregon. There’s an incident that catches the attention of the vampire king, and he sends the Hawk and Wolf to investigate.  As usual things get out of hand pretty quick, and our friends are hard pressed to deal with what comes at them.  What’s that?  You want a peek?  Well, okay, since you’ve been good, but first, if you need a refresher on the Hawk and Wolf, here’s where you find it.

e-book

 

“I said now …”

He got no further as Igor was between them, shoving him back.  “The lady said no.  No means no.”

The man staggered back when Igor pushed him.  “Why you dumb asshole, I’m gonna fuck you up ugly.”

“I invite you to try,” replied Igor as he tossed his jacket to Ronni.

The man whipped out a knife, but the bartender stepped between then with a shotgun.  “Take that outside, now.”  Igor nodded and turned toward the door as three more men rose from their tables to follow.  Branimir started to rise, but Igor shook his head and Bran sat back down.  The four men followed him outside.

Larise sat, wide eyed, staring at the door.  There were a few sounds of a struggle outside then Igor walked back in alone, rubbing his knuckles.  He sat back down as the food arrived.  “So, this looks good.”

“Work up an appetite, did you, lover?” grinned Ronni.

“Da,” he replied.  “I’m hungry as a wolf.”  Kylie snickered and reached for the chicken wings.

 

Okay, that’s all you get for now.  Keep an eye on this blog for updates, also sign up for the newsletter for insights into what’s coming in the future.

Until then, Bless

Children of the Wild

Hi folks,

Werewolves and werehawks, vampires, and strange things in between, that’s what the Hawk and the Wolf is about.  Yep, I’m back to telling you about the Children of the Wild series, and there’s more to come, soon.  Okay, for now, the Hawk and the Wolf.  This is the fourth book in the series and it’s one of my favorites.

The story begins with a bad accident in a government lab, the results are strange, unique, and extremely dangerous.  Mix in werewolves, a werehawk, vampires, top secret government agents, and a deadly exploding stone, and anything can happen, and it will.  Check it out here:

e-book

Get your copy today.  Why?  Because very soon the next book will be coming out.  It’ll be in the hands of the editors before the end of the week, so get caught up on the story.

Okay, on that note I’ll leave you alone to focus on the book.  Remember to sign on for the newsletter.  It’ll be out in a day or two and will have a small teaser from the new book as well as other goodies.

So for now

Spirit Bear

Hi folks,

I’ve been telling you about the Children of the Wild, first the original vampire, and then the discovery of the werewolves, but that’s not the end of it.  Slowly other things are coming to light.  A series of brutal murders has caught the attention of the vampire king.  Unfortunately, the only agent he has available to check it out is Marlene.  Although a tough vampire, the girl is a real princess, much preferring a shopping trip to Paris rather than hunting down a murderous werebear in the back woods.  (Who wouldn’t, right?)  Anyway, to find out how she manages to run him down and drag him off to the king’s court, check out the Vampire’s Lair.

e-book

 

I have to tell you, Marlene the princess vampire is one of my favorite characters.  The werebear is growing on me too.

Oh, I’ll be resurrecting my newsletter.  (I know I’ve said this before, but this time I really mean it. hehehe)  I promise I’ll put stuff in there that won’t appear anywhere else, at least not until much later.  You can sign up for that by checking the box in the comment space.  Doesn’t have to be a long comment, just say “Hi.”

 

Until next time

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.
