Hi folks,

I’ve been promising you something new for months now, and here it is at long last. This one took a long time to write as it touched a few soft spots. Check it out here and see what you think.

Yes, there’s a lot of my life experience in this one, but what parts? I’ll never tell. tee hee hee

Okay, as I’ve said before as I was getting this one ready, this was a tough one and I truly hope you like it.

So, until next time,

Bless,

Hey folks,

It’s been a long quiet summer, but things have been at work in the background. JAKE is now available in audio format. Want a pretty girl to read a great story to you? Check this out.

And that’s not the end of the good news, there’s more to come. Sending PUSHBACK off to the publisher today. With any luck it will be out soon. Here’s the tag line and a peek at the possible cover.

Even when you’ve escaped the darkness, a piece of it goes with you.  To face that darkness and defy it, or fall under its spell, that’s the real battle.  Terri Dawn didn’t know if she could defeat the darkness within her, or if she even wanted to.  She’d have an eternity to find out.

Okay, so that’s an idea of what’s in store for the next few months. I’d better get back to work now.

Let me know what you think of the new cover, and remember to get your audible copy of Jake.

Until next time

In The Works

Hi folks,

Last post I gave you a hint at the current project I’m working on. There’s a bit more to it, as you might have guessed.The story revolves around a woman who dares to rise up and fight back, but there’s always more than one battle to fight. The battle within is always the hardest.

“Even when you crawl out of the darkness, a piece of it comes with you. Even when you defeat the darkness within, it too will rise up again, for that battle will never end. To survive that fight you not only need strength and courage, you need allies.”

We’re putting the final touches on the manuscript now. Trying not to rush this one, I want to get it right. I’ll keep you in the loop as we progress.

Speaking of Progress, a gifted young artist is getting involved with the cover. You can check out and contact Perin through their FB page here: https://www.facebook.com/perin.squires

Okay, heading back to work now.

New Book Review and So Much More

Hi folks,

Wow, I just got a new review for Lady Blue.  Check out what Sapphic Reviews has to say about this book.

Amazon

Sapphic review: The first book in a series that you will get addicted to!

How does a long-forgotten Goddess and an abused/bullied teenager join forces to right the wrongdoings of the world? Well, you’ll need to read the book and I promise you that you will be hooked.

The journey that Penny takes from ‘Pee-Pee’ to ‘Lady Blue’ is quite a trip. There are terrible things humans will do to each other but together Lady Blue and Goddess Moragah set out to bring some justice back into the world in the way of the Warriors of old.

Prudence Macleod has a great way of writing, she draws you in. Her characters are well developed and the storyline leaves you wanting more, which in this case I’m happy to say Prudences satisfies with a series of books.

Follow the storyline by reading the full ‘Children of the Goddess‘ series :

See the full review and more here:  Sapphic Reviews

Also, check out SHIP, Amazon ,  the latest addition to the Forgotten Worlds Series (The Suvi series)

Okay, so, back to work for me:

Until next time

No Cliffhangers

Hi folks,

Life has kept me away from the computer a lot lately, but what can you do?  Okay, we were discussing chiffhangers last time.  I’m still getting feedback on that one, and the overwhelming majority of readers agree they hate them.

I agree, for I believe that when I publish a book I enter into a contract with the reader.  My part of the deal is to tell a full story.  Yes, there can be a few hints of further adventures to come, but I will always finish the story I’m telling you, the book will bring every major issue to a satisfactory conclusion.

So, on that note, for those of you who have yet to read it, I offer up SUVI.  Book one of three. (So far, book four is well under way.)  Check out SUVI, I promise you a full and enjyable story.  Here’s where to find it:

Amazon

 

So, back to work for me.  See you next time.

More on Cliffhangers

Hi folks,

For the past few weeks I’ve been conducting a loose poll about how readers and writers feel about cliffhangers.   I did it in a way that allowed folks to express an opinion, not just say yes or no.  The results were interesting, to say the least.

The overwhelming majority of folks who checked in (over 76) aren’t impressed with cliffhangers at the end of a book, TV show, or Movie.  Most say it’s a cheat, many refuse to follow along and abandon the series, or wait until it’s been completed then binge on it.  They are okay with, and even enjoy, a cliffhanger at the end of a chapter, but not at the end of a book.  Many were quite passionate about how much they hate them.

Some people seemed to be okay with them, or at least don’t seem to mind them so much.  There were even a few who were quite passionate about how much they love cliffhangers.  Nine, actually.  I checked, they’re all writers.

They say cliffhangers increase sales, the results here would seem to deny that statement.

As for me, I’ve never liked them, they irritate me.  If you’re telling me a story, finish it, dang it.  I’m okay, and so are a lot of readers, with leaving a few hints of things to come, but finish the main thread of the book.

So, there  it is, the people have spoken.  Cliffhangers won’t be appearing in any of my books.  Yes, there may be more for the characters to do in future stories, but each book will come to a satisfactory conclusion…. and that concludes this post. tee hee

Happy Reading

Cliffhangers

Hi folks,

I’d seriously like your opinion on cliffhangers.  Now, I have no problem with a long story arc that continues over several books, TV episodes, or movie series, but I have to say, this trend of ending every book , episode, or movie with a cliffhanger really rubs my fur the wrong way.

As you know, when I write a series there is a long story arc, but each book in the series ends with a resolution to the current problem for the main characters.  Yes, they know there will be more to face, but for the moment all is well, the reader can catch a breather before heading into the next adventure.

The Children of the Goddess series is a prime example of what I’m saying.  That one begins here:

Amazon

Personally, if a book I’m reading ends in a cliffhanger I’ll toss it and not read the rest of the series.

So, what are your thoughts on this?  Don’t be shy, tell me what you think, as a writer I kinda need to know this stuff, right?

Until next time

Well, it finally happened, my publisher caught me at a weak moment and talked me into being interviewed on The Writer’s Block, a feature of the Lesfic Reading Group.  Find it on Facebook here:  Lesfic Reading Group

So, if you’ve ever wondered about the reclusive Prudence MacLeod, come join the fun, ask me anything, learn far more than you really wanted to, find out what I’m up to next, and more.

See you there! 🙂

The SUVI, Mankind’s Next Step

Humans have reached out to colonize distant planets, they had no real idea what could go wrong, but they soon learned.  The colony was decimated by an indigenous species they knew nothing about, and by a virus that species carried.  That virus tried to rewrite the human DNA, to make the host better able to survive, for the most part it failed.  Of the thousands infected, nineteen managed to survive.  They are the SUVI, survivor of unknown viral infection.  Their story begins here:

Amazon

Amazon

These three books document the struggles and adventures as the SUVI and the last surviving humans escape the planet and set out to find another home.  They will face many more adventures before they find that which they seek, if they ever do.

So, I’ll leave you with this and get back to work on the next SUVI story.

Until next time
