First Step Into 2019

Hi Folks,

In my last post I gave you a glimpse into 2018.  A tough year, for a lot of people, me included, but not all bad.  My new series, Forgotten Worlds, is doing well.  Now, here’s the third book in the series, just out.  Jake.

On a long abandoned world a man comes to terms with some hard realities of life, it isn’t fair.  Here he must face his demons and try to live up to his own codes, his sense of himself.  Shipwrecked on an abandoned planet, injured, and facing unknown dangers, Jake must find a way to survive. Worse yet, his only companion is a super-powered alien woman who cannot function without others of her kind nearby. This is no place for a man who has lived all his life on a spaceship. Wait, what was that in the shadows?

Amazon

Jake is just out and already has picked up some great reviews.  With no modesty at all I say, this is probably my best work ever.  So, get your copy today and I’ll get back to trying to top it.  Happy reading.

Until next time

Bless

2018 In Review

Hi folks,

This isn’t a review of the world at large in 2018, it’s a quick look back from my world before leaping forward into 2019.  2018 was a year of big ups and downs.  on the up side, my Forgotten Worlds series brought me more success as a writer than I’ve achieved in many years.

Amazon

On the down side, in late August my beloved companion suffered two major heart attacks.  She managed to beat the odds and survive, but it has been touch and go for months since the first event.  As a result, I’ve been writing far less than usual as I’ve been spending as much time with my lady love as I possibly can.  This in turn has placed a financial strain on the family.  sigh.  It is what it is.

However, having said that, all is not lost.  Lady K is finally doing a lot better and we have hope for a long future together.  Also, I’ve finally finished the third book in the Forgotten Worlds series.  Personally, I think JAKE is my best work ever.  Here’s a peek at what’s inside.

Excerpt from JAKE:

Twenty threw the rest of their fuel onto the small blaze.  “We need more heat to cook this right, I just hope it lasts long enough.”

As the flames rose a bit higher there was a rumble deep beneath them.  “What was that?”

“Don’t know, Jake, but I’ve got a bad feeling about this.”

“Keep the weapons close.”

Nothing more happened for several moments, then they heard a soft hiss.  Jake turned the meat he was cooking then sniffed at it.  It smelled good and he was ravenous, then he heard a second hiss above them.  “Ah for fuck sake, you’re kidding me.  Dammit it all to hell.  Come on, Twenty, let’s move.”

He surged to his feet, clutching his portion of meat as he hurried toward the exit.  <Door open.>  “Come on, Twenty, hurry.”

“Jake, what the …”  She suddenly shrieked as foul-smelling water began to drip down on her.  She grabbed her pack, and clutching her cooked meat close, raced for the door.  Outside, sputtering and swearing, she shook the muck from her hair and eyes.  “What the actual hell?”

“Sprinkler system.”

“You’re kidding me.”

“Nope.  I guess our little fire triggered it.  Meat seems to be cooked though.”

 

So there you go, a peek at the next SUVI story.  There’s a few surprises in this one, so keep an eye out for it.

Until next time,

Bless

A Few Reviews

Hi folks,

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.

1. Kiamichi reviewed Echo (Forgotten Worlds Book 2)

Great sequel November 30, 2018

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.

4. Skip reviewed Echo (Forgotten Worlds Book 2)

Wonderfully entertaining November 17, 2018

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!

That’s the first seven, four different books in all reviewed.  Now if that feedback doesn’t inspire a body to write more, I don’t know what would.  So, on that note, back to work for me.

Until next time

Hard Travels and Great Reviews

Hi folks,

It was a strange day yesterday.  I went grocery shopping in the city.  I left the house at 8:00 a.m., the boats were running late so it was close to 11:00 by the time I reached the city.  By 1:00 p.m. I’d finished and headed home.  4:00 p.m. I arrived.  Dang boats.

Now, on the upside, when I got home I checked for reviews on Goodreads.  Here are two:

For ECHO:

Amazon

Sapphic reviews rated it, really liked it

If you enjoyed SUVI then you will love this second instalment of the series. Following the lives of the crew onboard the spaceship ‘Reacher’ as they explore the universe for a suitable planet for the colonists to settle on. As with all explorations, there are setbacks, unforeseen situations that arise along with unexpected gains and alliances. This book has it all, not only that but we get a deeper understanding of the characters we were introduced to in SUVI. If you enjoy SciFi, mystery and intrigue then this is definitely the series for you. Very well written and kept me reading continuously until I had the book finished and was left wanting the 3rd book to delve straight into, unfortunately, I have to wait for the 3rd book.

You won’t regret purchasing this book!

And this review for SUVI

Amazon

I’ve enjoyed reading books with strong female main characters since I was a teenager reading about Ayla in Earth’s Children series.
SUVI held my attention and I was up all night reading, something I haven’t done in a few years. This was well written and I didn’t find any mixed up sentences or misspelled words.
I really hope this is the first of a long series. I’m actually excited to find out what happens next.

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

And why the hell did they keep asking her for answers when they didn’t want to hear them?

Hi folks,

I’ve been off world for a while, but I haven’t forgotten all you awesome Earthlings.  For those of you who aren’t  aboard the spaceship, here’s a great new romance novel for you from Maria Siopis, Music of the Heart.

Here’s Maria to tell you a bit about it:

“Danielle, a New York media executive and owner, Melina, a Greek singer, and Vickie, a flight attendant, will unexpectedly meet, and their lives will change forever.

Danielle believes that the island of Santorini is the perfect getaway and where she hopes to find tranquility. All elements are there to grant her wish, the vastness of the Aegean Sea stretches in front of her for miles, and the rented villa is luxurious and minutes from the town of Oia where the most stunning sunsets occur, and where exquisite white homes with blue domed roofs climbing the mountainside. What she doesn’t expect is to lose her serenity within hours of arrival to the island. Nevertheless, she completely surrenders herself when she meets Melina who threatens to destroy her inane beliefs about love.

Melina is curious about Danielle, the intriguing woman she meets backstage after her concert, but she keeps her distance. Her life is settled, she has a fiancé she adores, and a career that’s taking off. That’s her destiny, yet, a brief moment, a tiny nanosecond changed everything. Her path is crossed, and she is too late to change course. She collides with her destiny, the perfect mate who is right in front of her. Can she make a choice that is truthful to her heart or is she going to allow accusations and lies destroy her better judgment?

Vickie stands between the two lovers claiming Melina’s heart when the dark secrets and lies are exposed. Is Melina going to give in to the gorgeous flight attendant or will her heart be taken by Danielle? In a moment of hurt and disbelief Melina takes the wrong path.
Yet, music cures broken hearts, music mends broken souls. Or so Melina believes.”
