Hi folks,

The will to survive is in us all, and no matter how bad it gets, deep down, there’s a spark inside us all that wants to fight back, to survive at any cost. And so it was for Terri Dawn.

However, 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.

Here’s what one reader had to say about Pushback.

“This was a great story that grabbed my attention from the first chapter. Great characters and touching on a subject that there really isn’t any middle ground on. It was good to see how the story changed as it progressed, getting deeper in the emotional and psychological sides. It was fast moving, keeping the story moving and the characters progressing, growing. I wasn’t ready for it to end and I’m looking forward to the next one. Sooo many options and twists it can take.
Excellent reading. “

Now for more good stuff. The next installment of the Forgotten Worlds series (SUVI series) is now in the hands of the editors. Look for it to appear later this fall.

And now back to work.

Hi folks,

Okay, I did promise to explain the thinking behind the cover of Pushback. The story of Pushback is an exploration of a survivor’s life experience. Even if you survive the abuse, the violence, the trauma, it never really goes away. Depression, insomnia, and so many more ghosts of the past will rise up without warning, and the survivor as well as those around them, have to deal with that.

This cover tries to reflect that feeling of being and not being, of being lost between your own past experience and the life you’re trying to create. So here she is, Terri Dawn, so dramatically portrayed by the ultra talented Perin Squires. Terri Dawn will fight many battles, but her toughest battle will always be with her past.

Yes, the title and author name are hard to read, that too is deliberate, a reflection of the subject matter within. The book may trigger some people, it did me many times as I wrote it, but I promise you, as always with my stories as with life itself, there is hope, there is always hope.

Okay, there it is, the reason the cover is the way it is, the way I wanted it for this one. Please don’t shoot the cover artist, she was just following orders. tee hee

So, back to work for me. What’s that? Yes, I’ve started work on the sequel. Stay tuned for it to appear later this year or early next.

Hi folks,

Well, Pushback has been out for a few days now and I’m thrilled with the reception. Here are a couple of the early reviews. I promise you, these people are not my family or neighbors, and I’ve never met any of them in person. These reviews are real.

5.0 out of 5 starsread it in a single sitting.(about 5 hours)September 16, 2019Format: Kindle EditionVerified PurchaseOk. I loved this book. loved the premise (renewed life/chance to rescue battered women), loved the world building, the romance, the angst. the action (I love to see bullies get beat, not sorry) I really liked the ending that, while wrapping up the plot well, still leaves room for another story along the line. Yes it is a lesbian romance/adventure; but its not explicit, there is some kissing and it explores polyamory, but the sex is all in the reader’s imagination. This book would be suitable for older teen readers. Overall it was a delightful read.

All right, that will give you an idea of what to expect. Also, a heartfelt thank you to those who took the time to review the book. Bless you one and all.

So, now I have to get back to work. Go ahead, give Pushback a try and let me know what you think.

Until next time

Hi folks,

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,

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.

Until next time

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.

New Book Review and So Much More

Hi folks,

Wow, I just got a new review for Lady Blue.  Check out what Sapphic Reviews has to say about this book.

Amazon

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 :

See the full review and more here:  Sapphic Reviews

Also, check out SHIP, Amazon ,  the latest addition to the Forgotten Worlds Series (The Suvi series)

Okay, so, back to work for me:

My Ship Came In

Hi folks,

Yep, I’ve been teasing you about the fourth book in the Forgotten Worlds Series, but the wait is over.  The ship has come in.  You can find SHIP here:

Amazon

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.

Until next time

Bless

Coming Soon

Hi folks,

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:

Amazon

Audible

 

So, until next time, know this, there will be another five or six book in this series, maybe more.  Book five is well under way now.

And on that note, I’m back to work.

Bless
