I’ve been promising you something new for months now, and here it is at long last. This one took a long time to write as it touched a few soft spots. Check it out here and see what you think.
Yes, there’s a lot of my life experience in this one, but what parts? I’ll never tell. tee hee hee
Okay, as I’ve said before as I was getting this one ready, this was a tough one and I truly hope you like it.
So, until next time,
It’s been a long quiet summer, but things have been at work in the background. JAKE is now available in audio format. Want a pretty girl to read a great story to you? Check this out.
And that’s not the end of the good news, there’s more to come. Sending PUSHBACK off to the publisher today. With any luck it will be out soon. Here’s the tag line and a peek at the possible cover.
Even when you’ve escaped the darkness, a piece of it goes
with you. To face that darkness and defy
it, or fall under its spell, that’s the real battle. Terri Dawn didn’t know if she could defeat
the darkness within her, or if she even wanted to. She’d have an eternity to find out.
Okay, so that’s an idea of what’s in store for the next few months. I’d better get back to work now.
Let me know what you think of the new cover, and remember to get your audible copy of Jake.
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.
Sapphic review: The first book in a series that you will get addicted to!
How does a long-forgotten Goddess and an abused/bullied teenager join forces to right the wrongdoings of the world? Well, you’ll need to read the book and I promise you that you will be hooked.
The journey that Penny takes from ‘Pee-Pee’ to ‘Lady Blue’ is quite a trip. There are terrible things humans will do to each other but together Lady Blue and Goddess Moragah set out to bring some justice back into the world in the way of the Warriors of old.
Prudence Macleod has a great way of writing, she draws you in. Her characters are well developed and the storyline leaves you wanting more, which in this case I’m happy to say Prudences satisfies with a series of books.
Follow the storyline by reading the full ‘Children of the Goddess‘ series :
When faced with a species determined to destroy every other form of life there is only one thing to do, survive, any way you can. So it becomes for the people of the Reacher, and to keep them alive, Suvi-jean Sorenson must release the tightly controlled warrior within her. Above all else, she is SUVI 5, the ultimate survivor.
You’re going to enjoy this one. Now, I have to get back to work on the next one.
Last time I told you about SUVI being launched in audio book. I’m please to say it’s doing well, and I believe ECHO will soon be out in that format also. Above that, book four in the Forgotten Worlds series (SUVI series) is now in the hands of the publisher and hopfully will hit the shelves this month.
Here’s the mock up for the cover and a peek inside.
Now for a sample:
“You are the wild one, the one who makes noise and tries to kill us all.”
Twenty tilted her head as she tried to make sense of what the translator said. “Lower your weapon, we will not harm you. We came to help.”
“Help who, me or the Wrax?”
“I don’t understand, who or what are the Wrax?”
“They are the destroyers of life, the death dealers sleeping on this ship. Your crashing around could set off the alarms to awaken them. I have never …”
He got no further as Sessas intervened. She stepped in front of Twenty and gently pushed the creature’s weapon aside. “No more talk. You weak, starving, tired, alone. Come.” She took his weapon and tried to pull him to his feet, but he melted toward the floor. “Tentee carry. He too weak.”
Twenty nodded and scooped the creature up in her arms. Hal radioed ahead that they had him and were on their way back. Sheila said the medical bay would be ready when they arrived. They were barely halfway to Retriever when a general alarm sounded throughout the ship and the big landing bay doors slammed shut.
“Retriever to Hal.”
“Here, Captain. As I understand it that alarm will wake up the sleeping giant. Our friend says we’re all going to die.”
“Maybe, but not today. Get a move on.”
Okay, that’s all you get for now. Remember, SUVI is available in audio here:
Hi folks, well, it’s finally happened, I’ve joined the 21st century. I’ve been encouraged many times over the past number of years to bring my books out in the audible format. Thanks to my enterprising and energetic publisher, Shadoe Publishing, it has begun, and I’m thrilled that it has. This is amazing.
SUVI has gone live in Audio format, so if you want a gal with a sexy voice to read you a great story, here’s where you find it.
There’s no better way to relax than to sit back and have someone read you a story, so go for it, get your copy today.
The plan is to get the whole series into audio, and although there are only three books in the series so far, I have plans for several more. #4 is in the hands of the editors right now, and #5 is about 50% done in first draft form. Stay tuned, there’s lots of great stuff on the way!
Okay, we’ve spent a few weeks on cliffhangers, now I want to have a go at writer’s block. No, don’t try to deny it, it’s real and we all get it once in a while. Sometimes it gets bad, sometimes scary, “Will I ever write again? Come on, characters, talk to me, what’s with the silent treatment?”
So, what do you do about it?
Me? I have several tactics I use, but here’s my favorite, a three fold battle plan to get the juices going again. One, I play Skyrim and World of Warcraft a lot. Two, I keep note books handy for when those errand strokes of brilliance occur, make notes, write snippets, even a paragraph or two, and read some of my older notes. Three, I re-read my favorite books that I’ve written. Why? It tells me I can do it and do it well, it helps me find my voice again, and it stimulates my imagination.
So, that works for me. Every block is usually followed with a successful novel that just rolled off the keyboard with ease. Most notable recently is SUVI, my most successful novel so far. SUVI appeared after a three month block that nearly drove me mad. Here’s where to find her:
Life has kept me away from the computer a lot lately, but what can you do? Okay, we were discussing chiffhangers last time. I’m still getting feedback on that one, and the overwhelming majority of readers agree they hate them.
I agree, for I believe that when I publish a book I enter into a contract with the reader. My part of the deal is to tell a full story. Yes, there can be a few hints of further adventures to come, but I will always finish the story I’m telling you, the book will bring every major issue to a satisfactory conclusion.
So, on that note, for those of you who have yet to read it, I offer up SUVI. Book one of three. (So far, book four is well under way.) Check out SUVI, I promise you a full and enjyable story. Here’s where to find it:
