Well, the first big snowstorm of the year hit last night. I spent three hours digging out this morning, now that was a workout. The path to Kathy’s studio is cleared, the path to the basement is cleared, the dog yard is cleared, the deck is cleared, the path to the storage shed (firewood) is cleared, the driveway and the front step are cleared. It’s time for a big mug of tea and a good book.
Which book? Why, JAKE, of course, the sequel to ECHO. The first draft is nearly done and by this time next week, it will be in the hands of the editors. So, what’s it about? There’s a teaser chapter at the end of ECHO. Get your copy here.
“Once again Prudence has succeeded in creating a wonderfully complex and fascinating story. Well crafted characters that pull at your heart and bring laughter, tears and wonder. I am so looking forward to the next chapter in the SUVI universe. It’s a bit like watching the original Star Trek unfold on pages. New places, life forms, drama and romance. Wonderful!”
“Great sequel to Suvi. Enjoyed it. As the author states in her afterwords, her writing style is a bit different but boy can she spin a good yarn. You should read Suvi first to know what’s going on in Echo.”
It’s early morning and snowing out right now. The house is quiet, and I was looking for inspiration, so I checked the author review pages on Amazon. I often get some great ideas from the reviews. Here’s the first seven reviews I found, six five-star, and one four-star reviews.

Well, I’ve had a hard lesson over the past couple of days. If you’ve been following this blog you already know My Lady K had a series of heart attacks and surgeries back in August. The road to recovery is a slow process. She’s not able to do much and the lion’s share of daily chores falls to me.
The big problem, and our vulnerability hit me this week when an injury to my foot made walking difficult and painful. Fortunately, I’m on the mend, but it showed me just how fragile our situation here is. It’s a bit scary to say the least.
Now to a brighter note. The long awaited sequel to SUVI has arrived. In this story we encounter not just the SUVI, but a host of new characters and unseen dangers. For a quick peek inside, check here:
Also, if you prefer a different bookseller, or want a quick preview of the book, or any of my books, check them out on this website. All books have a preview for you. (The preview button is at the bottom of the page)
Now, I have to limp out to the kitchen and get busy. With luck I’ll be able to steal some writing time later today.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Well, for those of you who follow The Children of the Wild series, and who’ve asked me what happened there, hold onto your hats, the Lady Hawk is back. Sometimes life hands you strange turns, difficult challenges, and more. It is how we rise to these challenges, overcome the obstacles, that defines who we will become. The question now is, who will Lady Hawk become as she faces the biggest challenge of her life?
A woman is taken, tortured, and suddenly Rhonda’s 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?
Okay folks, there you have it, the return of the Lady Hawk. Don’t wait, order your copy today. 🙂
So, what exactly is a SUVI ? A SUVI is a person who survived a terrible plague, survivor of unknown viral infection. That person lived through days of debilitating pain and a raging fever. Only a precious few managed to survive, but those who did came out enhanced, super human, and yet, not fully human anymore.
Here’s another one to keep an eye on, it’ll be out in August. This is sci-fi for a younger audience as well as the young at heart, and author Susan M. MacDonald does not disappoint. Imagine, if you will:
Without your memory, who would you be?
How would you know who to protect?
Would love be enough to pull you from the edge?
Now that Alec and his terrifying abilities are under the control of the traitorous Anna, its up to Riley to save her friend before the entire galaxy comes undone. And she’s running out of time as the final explosive showdown with the seemingly indestructible Rhozan approaches.
Book Three of the Tyon Trilogy comes to a dramatic end. (Or does it?)
So here’s what to look for:
And here’s where to get a sneak peek as well as a chance to pre-order:
Her story began on a far off forgotten world. A member of a lost colony, she too became infected when a plague decimated the colony, killing thousands. She is one of only nineteen on the infected who lived. They survived, but changed, no longer human, they are SUVI. (survivor of unknown viral infection) She is SUVI 5, the fifth survivor. Her story begins here:
Forgotten Worlds: Humans were seeded out into the stars, and then forgotten, their home world destroyed, and only the One Ship remains with hopes to find some of them, searching for the forgotten worlds.
Hi folks. Yes, it’s me again, blowing my own horn, but I’m really pleased with this one, my favorite of any I’ve written so far. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed. 🙂
Here’s what one reviewer has to say: SUVI – Forgotten Worlds Book 1, is Sci-Fi so I will be biased because I just love my science fiction novels. Yet, this particular book is even more. The main character, SUVI5, is half human after her DNA is altered caused by viral infection, and she appears to be unaware of how humans have to behave in a social settings and relationships. Perhaps that is what I liked most: SUVI5’s innocence, and her relationship with Amanda that is so sweet and unforced. Further, the world that the writer created is fantastic with a dose of realism that makes you crave for more. The ending is satisfying with HEA. Hoping that the writer is working hard to provide another installment of this great story soon.
