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.

Loved this story and want a sequel

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

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

Best Sellers

Hi folks,

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.

Go check them out while I get back to work on the sequel to SUVI.  Happy reading!

Until next time

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
