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.

Amazing Days

Hi folks,

It was almost a year ago that my beloved Lady K had her first heart attack, and my world changed forever.  The road to recovery is long and slowly walked, but she has made amazing strides.  I tell you this so you’ll understand why I’ve been conspicuous by my absence from social media this past year, I’m spending every moment possible with this amazing woman.

However, having said that, I’m still managing some writing time, and hope to soon have something completely new for you.   The manuscript is already in the hands of the editor and I have hopes it will pass muster.

In the meantime,  Forgotten Worlds series continue to sell well, and I thank you all for that.   This new thing I’m working on is a series, and yet it isn’t.  Each book will be a stand alone, but will be set in the same world as the Children of the Goddess series.  Should be fun.  Here’s a little peek.

“Everybody wants a fresh start at one time or another, but not like this.  Terri Dawn Comarda had fled her abusive husband, stolen his precious sports car, and run.  The sudden bright light, combined with her tears, blinded her and the car left the lonely mountain road at speed.  She was barely aware of the impact that destroyed her already battered body.”

Okay, that’s enough for now.  I’ll tell you more later, right now I have to go make coffee for am amazing lady.

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

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!

5. Christian Jeffress reviewed SUVI (Forgotten Worlds Book 1)

Fun read October 22, 2018

This was a fun and quick read over all. While this book might not be a fantastical space opera, it’s still a good book to pick up for some quick sci-fi fun.

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

Lady Blue

Hi folks,

Sometimes life brings you unexpected surprises.  Recently my better half had two heart attacks and two open heart surgeries, in two days.  Two weeks later she developed a blood clot in her lung.  She is on the mend now, making slow but steady progress back to the force of nature she truly is.

However, as you might guess, her care plus the added chores she always did for the family have fallen to me, cutting deeply into my writing time.  Now, imagine my surprise and delight to find one of my books, and the rest of the series, enjoying a renewed level of success.  Here’s the latest review for Lady Blue.

“This is such a great action/love story book. I can’t wait to read the next one. I wasn’t really sure about this but there is nothing but action action action.”

Amazon

And just for luck, here’s another of the reviews for Lady Blue.

“Absolutely loved this book, literally did not put it down till I had finished it…..really spiked my interest as I am a spiritual person and believe in the goddesses. Will definitely be looking out for any more books by Prudence MacLeod.”

So, here’s me saying thank you to everybody who bought and enjoyed Lady Blue, because of you I’ve been able to keep the family afloat during this difficult time.  I love each and every one of you.

It’s the End of the World

Hi folks,

Okay, we’ve gotten through the third round of edits for the SUVI sequel, and are now moving on.  In the meantime, let me tell you about a couple of stand alone book to help  pass the time while we wait.

First, how about an end of the world, alien invasion, apocalyptic, battle for possession of planet Earth.   If you like them action packed, you’ll love Incoming.   Find it here:

Amazon

 

Now, if a post-apocalyptic story is more to your liking, The Second is just the thing for you.  This one takes place long after the fall of mankind.  Find it here:

amazon

 

And if you want ghosts and demons to put you in the mood for Halloween, check out Dark Star.  She’s  right here.                                       Amazon

Dark Star by Prudence MacLeod

Okay, there’s a few stand alone stories for your reading pleasure.  Now I’ll get back to work and see if I can speed up the time frame for the next SUVI story.

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
