Eons and Ages plus a Teaser

Hi folks,

Lately I’ve been telling you about the Children of the Goddess series.  I do hope you enjoyed it.  Now let’s go back to my new series, Forgotten Worlds.  The first book, SUVI, swiftly became a best seller, and for that, I thank you.  Today I’ll give you a peek at the  second book.  We’re in final edits and hope to have it out to you later this fall.

But first, if you haven’t yet read it, here where to find SUVI.

Amazon

Now here’s the promised teaser:

Final Entry

Struggling to draw breath, Morthel forced down the well of sorrow and fear.  Gently patting the cold dead form of her lover, she fought to draw breath and continue her diary entry.  “Antha has gone now, she has not drawn a breath for some time, and she grows cold.  I’m the last survivor.

“It’s only been a day since the asteroid hit the planet, stripping away much of the atmosphere and pushing us out in the system to a deeper orbit.  The power has failed, and the cold of space is creeping in.

“The collision destroyed two thirds of the fleet, so only a chosen few could leave the planet.  Even though thousands were killed by the quakes some people still had to remain behind. I lost the draw of lots, and sweet Antha wouldn’t go without me.  She stayed with me and so we will lie here, side by side for all eternity.

“I hope someone will find this diary one day and know by it all the joys of the colony, and of its sudden and unexpected demise.”  She pulled her dead lover closer as the racking cough from breathing the frozen atmosphere took her life, the diary still gripped tightly in a hand that no longer trembled from the cold.

Time passed, and the broken colony lay quiet on the surface of a planet that could no longer sustain life.  Ages rolled by while the small shelters gazed toward the sparkling stars, the feeble light of the now distant sun no longer able to warm the planet.  Eventually, even the beacons failed and stopped sending out their pleas for help, dust settled, and bodies disappeared beneath it.

Eons passed before the silent shelters felt another footstep, but these were larger feet of a different species, and even if the machines had power, the strange new voices would not have been able to activate them.

Well, there you go, folks, that’s how book two of Forgotten Worlds begins.  In the coming weeks leading up to publication I’ll give you a few more peeks between the covers.

Binge!

Hi folks,

If you’re like me you like to binge read a series.   I think my first real binge read was Lord of the Rings, way back in the late 60’s.  I know I’ve done it many times since.  Lately I’ve noticed a few folks must be binging on my Children of the Goddess series.  Yes, every heroine in that series was used, abused, and bullied, and more in the beginning.  Most of us were, so I guess I put a bit more of myself into those books than I thought.

Curious?  Find them here starting with Lady Blue.

Amazon

Okay, I’ll confess, there’s a story arc that plays out over all seven books, but each book has a satisfactory  conclusion, no cliffhangers.  So, happy binging.

Until next time

Hijacked

Hi folks,

I’ve told you of my beloved’s heart attack.  In reality it was two heart attacks, two open heart surgeries, in two days, yet she beat it.  Lady K is now at home and on the mend.  For some reason today she decided to hijack my blog to tell you about the rise of a writer she knows well.  Here’s Lady K:

“Over twenty years ago, I watched as Prudence MacLeod gingerly navigated the keyboard of her first desktop personal computer. She was anxious to embrace the new technology to help her bring her stories to life.

Each day when I came home from work, her smiling face would be a signal that there were freshly written pages for me to peruse. I fell in love with those first characters and was anxious to read their full story. When I reached the end of her day’s work, I often found myself trying to scroll further. She always got a kick out of that and of watching my face as I read.

Over the years Pru has honed her skills as a writer. What has remained constant is her desire to tell stories about ordinary people who do extraordinary things.  As a former powerlifting coach, Pru knows that most people underestimate what they are truly capable of and sometimes place barriers in their own way. She also knows that when you show people how to kick down those barriers, their world enlarges and how they see themselves is forever changed.

 

Pru also understands that when people can see themselves in a story, the experience of reading becomes empowering. This is why she chooses to write about characters who have been abused, who come from disadvantaged backgrounds, are LGBTQ2, are a person of color, etc. When you can see at least bits of yourself in the story, reading isn’t just about entertainment, but becomes an exercise in having your own notions of limitations and barriers challenged as the everyday heroine finds ways to realize her own dreams and potential, often through the most unusual of circumstances.

 

The genres, settings and characters may change from book to book, but the key messages always remain: you are enough, you are capable and you are worthy.  Her goal is to tell stories that entertain but also leave you with something to help you along your own path.

 

So, for action packed stories featuring everyday heroes, check out Prudence MacLeod’s stories. You won’t be disappointed!  Here’s the link:      Amazon

Thank you for that glowing description, my love, and thank you for staying on this plane with me so I can continue to tell you my stories.

Until next time, folks.

Updates and More

Hi folks,

For those of you following the aftermath of my beloved’s heart attack, here an update.  After not one, but two heart attacks, with two open heart surgeries, all is well.  K is now at home, convalescing.  We’re facing a long road ahead, but thankfully we’ll get to make that journey together.

Now, on another bright note, I’ve been telling you of my two best sellers, SUVI and Lady Blue.  Well, Lady Blue is being translated into Portuguese and I believe there’s an audio book in the works.   Haven’t read it?  Well, now’s the time.  Here’s where to find Lady Blue.

Amazon

Lady Blue is book one of a seven book series, all books are finished and are available at all major book sellers.  Happy reading.

Also, I’ve been threatening you with the next book in the Forgotten Worlds series.  (Sequel to SUVI)  I may give you a peek into the story on my next post.  Stay tuned.

Until next time

Last time I told you about my dynamic duo, SUVI and Lady Blue.  It appears you agree with me because this past week they both earned their gold star.  Yes indeed, both SUVI and Lady Blue are now wearing Best Seller labels, SUVI for sci-fi, and Lady Blue for urban fantasy.  So, if you haven’t already read either of these, here’s where to check them out.

Dynamic Duo

Hi folks,

So far it’s been a good summer, and I personally have managed to find some extra reading time.  Sinfully delightful.  Anyway, here’s the same old question, stand alone story, or binge read a series.  Either way works for me, how about you.

Yes, I been working as well.  I’m about 3/4 of the way through a first draft, it’s the sequel to SUVI.  Now, if a stand alone story os for you, SUVI can fill that bill nicely.

Amazon

Having said that, I’ll admit to loving to binge my way through a series.  If you enjoy urban fantasy, the Children of the Goddess could be just what the doctor ordered.  It’s a complete series of seven books in total.  It begins with Lady Blue.

Amazon

Okay, I think I’ll sneak in a few chapters while I’m alone in the house.  Maybe I’ll re-read SUVI just to keep my head in the game.

Until next time

The Heir

Hi folks,

The vampire king must name an heir, but the choice isn’t an easy one.  Of the people he could choose, the Lady Hawk is an unknown, even if she would accept.  There are others better suited for the task, but fate is about to intervene.

A woman is taken, tortured, and suddenly Rhonda is thrust into a position of command that she doesn’t want.  What if she screws it up?  What if it all goes wrong and blows up in her face getting everyone killed?  She’s utterly terrified, and the man she depends on most just sits there waiting for orders.  Will she succeed on her own or fail and bring ruin to all?

Book seven in the Children of the Wild series.

Amazon

 

Okay, I’ll confess it, the Lady Hawk is one of my favorite characters.  I’ve actually missed hanging out with her.   Don’t wait, get this latest episode in the Children of the Wild series today.  See what the Lady Hawk is up to now. 🙂

Until next time

Escape and Freedom

Hi folks,

Well, it’s time for me to tell you about another new author I’ve just encountered.   Claire Stevenson has reached into the depths of our human experience and brought forth a story and characters all too many of us can relate to.  Here’s Claire to tell you a bit about Escape and Freedom.

Amazon

Two women escaping their own demons. One stuck in the past, the other a very real present.
Lucy Owens’ life was irrevocably changed in a matter of seconds. Life as she knew it was over in the blink of an eye. Moving away from all that she knew, Lucy now lives a solitary life in her cabin on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Filled with guilt and pain, she keeps herself to herself, and for years she manages to avoid immersing back into society.
Nicole Granger has three small children to worry about. Always looking over her shoulder, they arrive at the lake with very little to call their own. Haunted by years of physical abuse, she longs to belong again, to bring normality to her girls’ lives for the first time.
Both women are pulled towards one another in an attraction that could bring both of them their freedom.

 

So, there you go folks, that ought to pique your interest.  Looks like a great story for a hot summer’s night, right?

 

Until next time

Happy reading

Bless
