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

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:

Amazon

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.

Thank You

Hi folks,

Today I want to say thank you for helping to make SUVI my most successful book to date.  Thank you for the support, thank you for the help, and to those of you who took the time to  read and review the book, a double thanks.  Yes, even to the guy who gave it a two star rating.

SUVI was one of those books that demanded to be written.  I sat up late to write, got up early to continue, and couldn’t truly rest until I’d told the story.  Well, the beginning of the story, there’s lots more to come.  (Book two is well under way.)

Now, for the rest of you beautiful people out there, if you haven’t already read and reviewed SUVI,  here’s where to find her:

SUVI e-book and more

So, once again a huge thank you to you all, and keep your eyes open cause I’ll soon be telling you about some other great authors, plus there’s a new Lady Hawk adventure on the horizon. (yes, and a new SUVI story too.)

Bless

More SUVI

Hi folks,

I was asked the other day, “What’s SUVI all about?”  Well, this:

Enslaved as a child, her DNA altered until she was barely half human, Jeannie Sorenson still managed to engineer her escape back to the ship that brought her to that deadly planet. Could the humans accept her now that she was half alien? Could she learn to interact with them and still retain her freedom? And why the hell did they keep asking her for answers when they didn’t want to hear them?

e-book

What’s that?  You want a peek between the covers?  Okay, here goes:

It took a few hours for them to explore what was left of the original colony.  SUVI 3 showed them where the colonists were buried in a mass grave.  They didn’t try to disturb that, but moved on.

The colony had been abandoned in a hurry and a surprising amount of equipment remained salvageable.  Six more workers were transported down to help with the demolition and salvage operation.  The day was well along when Suvi-jean’s head came up and she was sniffing the air.  “Thirteen?”

“I smell them.”

“Get our people inside the ship, quickly.”

Thirteen sped to the task and Suvi-jean ran off in the direction from which she sensed the danger.  Dammit, she’d been too distracted, they were close and moving fast.  She turned and ran.  Jake was waiting at the hatch when she arrived.

“Get in,” he shouted, “get in.”  His weapon barked three times and a creature toppled to its side, kicking as its companions sped past it.  Suvi-jean leaped through the hatch and Jake slammed it closed behind her.  “Take her up.”

So, intrigued yet?  Now, get your copy today, ’cause I’ve already started work on the next book in the series. 🙂

Some Background

Hi folks,

Today I’ll give you a bit of background about how SUVI came to be.  I’ve had the idea of Forgotten Worlds in mind for years, The Elvish Chronicles were my first foray into that idea.  In that series the humans have managed to survive and thrive, but have fallen back into a Medieval world which they share with other species.  You can find that series and more here:   All the good stuff!

In SUVI, I took a different approach.  Here the humans weren’t able to survive the harsh realities of an alien planet with any success.  The planet’s indigenous species have driven the humans underground and also mutated several of them.  In this reality, the last of the humans are saved by the great ship that brought them to the planet, or are they?  Find out here:

SUVI

This was one of those books that demanded to be written.  I awakened in the middle of the night with a voice in my head.  The first two chapters were written before I was allowed to sleep.  I love it when a story grabs me like that.

I’ll sign off for now and get my butt back to work.  I have another Children of the Wild story to complete.

Forgotten Worlds

Hi folks,

Well, SUVI has launched and I’m thrilled with the response.  I got the idea for Forgotten Worlds a few years ago, but let it percolate in the chaos that is my mind for a while.  Several months ago SUVI 5 came to me and asked her story be told.  I promised to do that for her.  This book is the first step in fulfilling that promise.

Take me to the treasure now.

The second book in this series is already in the works; the trials of humanity’s last remaining people are not over yet.  Their ultimate survival is not yet a given.

Also in the works is the ongoing adventures of Lady Hawk and the Children of the Wild.

So, on that note, I leave you to it, and thank you for all the social media shares and support.  It truly helps and I do appreciate it.

Bless
