Escape and Freedom

Hi folks,

Well, it’s time for me to tell you about another new author I’ve just encountered.   Claire Stevenson has reached into the depths of our human experience and brought forth a story and characters all too many of us can relate to.  Here’s Claire to tell you a bit about Escape and Freedom.

Amazon

Two women escaping their own demons. One stuck in the past, the other a very real present.
Lucy Owens’ life was irrevocably changed in a matter of seconds. Life as she knew it was over in the blink of an eye. Moving away from all that she knew, Lucy now lives a solitary life in her cabin on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Filled with guilt and pain, she keeps herself to herself, and for years she manages to avoid immersing back into society.
Nicole Granger has three small children to worry about. Always looking over her shoulder, they arrive at the lake with very little to call their own. Haunted by years of physical abuse, she longs to belong again, to bring normality to her girls’ lives for the first time.
Both women are pulled towards one another in an attraction that could bring both of them their freedom.

 

So, there you go folks, that ought to pique your interest.  Looks like a great story for a hot summer’s night, right?

 

Until next time

Happy reading

Hi folks,

Here’s another one to keep an eye on, it’ll be out in August.   This is sci-fi for a younger audience as well as the young at heart, and author Susan M. MacDonald does not disappoint.  Imagine, if you will:

Would love be enough to pull you from the edge?
Now that Alec and his terrifying abilities are under the control of the traitorous Anna, its up to Riley to save her friend before the entire galaxy comes undone. And she’s running out of time as the final explosive showdown with the seemingly indestructible Rhozan approaches.
Book Three of the Tyon Trilogy comes to a dramatic end. (Or does it?)
So here’s what to look for:
And here’s where to get a sneak peek as well as a chance to pre-order:

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.

Music of the Heart

Hi folks,

I’ve been off world for a while, but I haven’t forgotten all you awesome Earthlings.  For those of you who aren’t  aboard the spaceship, here’s a great new romance novel for you from Maria Siopis, Music of the Heart.

Here’s Maria to tell you a bit about it:

“Danielle, a New York media executive and owner, Melina, a Greek singer, and Vickie, a flight attendant, will unexpectedly meet, and their lives will change forever.

Danielle believes that the island of Santorini is the perfect getaway and where she hopes to find tranquility. All elements are there to grant her wish, the vastness of the Aegean Sea stretches in front of her for miles, and the rented villa is luxurious and minutes from the town of Oia where the most stunning sunsets occur, and where exquisite white homes with blue domed roofs climbing the mountainside. What she doesn’t expect is to lose her serenity within hours of arrival to the island. Nevertheless, she completely surrenders herself when she meets Melina who threatens to destroy her inane beliefs about love.

Melina is curious about Danielle, the intriguing woman she meets backstage after her concert, but she keeps her distance. Her life is settled, she has a fiancé she adores, and a career that’s taking off. That’s her destiny, yet, a brief moment, a tiny nanosecond changed everything. Her path is crossed, and she is too late to change course. She collides with her destiny, the perfect mate who is right in front of her. Can she make a choice that is truthful to her heart or is she going to allow accusations and lies destroy her better judgment?

Vickie stands between the two lovers claiming Melina’s heart when the dark secrets and lies are exposed. Is Melina going to give in to the gorgeous flight attendant or will her heart be taken by Danielle? In a moment of hurt and disbelief Melina takes the wrong path.
Yet, music cures broken hearts, music mends broken souls. Or so Melina believes.”

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.)

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.

SUVI (Survivor of Unknown Viral Infection)

Hi folks,

Wow, just wow.  I am so excited about this one.  SUVI is my latest book, the first in a new series, and by far my best work yet.  Okay, I’m hyped about this one, pleased as punch at how it came out.  Check this out!

e-book

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?

Get your copy now, folks, you won’t be sorry.  (Can you tell I love this story?)

Okay, I’ve been promising a newsletter and it will happen this week.  We’ve finally got everything compliant with the new rules, and the site is now a secure site, so we’ve had our shots, it’s safe to take us home now.

Happy reading!

Loving the Previews

Hi folks,

Last time I told you about this awesome promotion by several authors who you might not know.  Believe me, read these previews and you’ll know who these authors are.  Yeah, I downloaded all the previews and am working my way through them now.  Get your own here:

Take me there now!

So, what do I think so far?  Okay,  I’m reading Reality Dawn and loving it, plus, I can’t wait to get my hands on Survival Instincts.  Oh lord, can this gal write.  I hope to be this good when I grow up.

I’m not kidding, folks, there’s some awesome work here for the asking.  Go check it out, you’ll be glad you did.

About Me, A Few of My Thoughts

 

Hi folks,

I believe that ordinary people are capable of remarkable feats.  I’ve always believed that given the right circumstances people can tap into the well of limitless possibilities. I saw this more than once as an athlete and coach many years ago.  I’ve seen it more recently through the anecdotes people post on social media.

Despite this, we are all inundated with negativity and bad news stories every day. And this has seeped into entertainment as television series have become darker, filled with tragedy and angst-ridden plots that drag on season after season.

This is not my idea of entertainment and I’m betting it isn’t yours either.  I want to offer you something different and invite you to find out more about me and the stories I tell….

For example, this, my latest book:

Amazon

Now, here’s what a couple of folks think of my storytelling.:

Great addition to the Children of the wild series. I was hoping you would add an herbivore (that’s not an insane elk) to your were family. What a fun story. Please keep them coming.

Keep putting out the children of the wild series love them. Ronnie and Igor are great along with Derek and Jillian. It’s nice to see the other characters as well. Can’t wait to see what comes next in the wild series and I have no problem recommending this book to my friends.

 

So, my point is, there’s a few folks out there who like a story with a more upbeat ending.  How about you, do you prefer happy endings, or do you prefer dark and foreboding cliffhangers?  Drop a comment, let me know what you really like.

 

Sneak Peek at a New Book

Hi there,

Rhonda Stockman here, known as the Lady Hawk.  Prudence is a busy girl these days, so I’ve commandeered her blog to give you a sneak peek into the next adventure in the Children of the Wild series, starring yours truly.  The entire book should become available in the next few days.  The book will be called Race the Wind, the cover will look something like this:

Now. here’s a peek inside:

The queen of the vampires awakened with a start, breathing deeply as she tried to shake off the spell of the vision.  “Sally, my beloved, what is it?”  Concerned, the king took her gently into his arms.  “Hush now, I’ve got you, you’re safe.  Tell me what you saw.”

She snuggled against him, retreating into the protection of his arms.  “I saw a time of danger, Harald, danger of discovery.  Somehow, a horse is at the center of it, but it is Igor and Rhonda who are the key.”

“Igor and Rhonda?”

“Yes, if they can’t hold true to each other, all will be lost.  If they can, we have a solid chance, but it’s the horse that will make or break it.”

“So what do we do?”

“Nothing, Harald, my love.  There’s nothing we can do.  It’s going to be up to the Hawk and the Wolf; our future lies in their hands, their ability to function, the strength of their love for each other.  This will be their greatest test, and all our fates hang in the balance.

 

Okay, so there you go, got your curiosity up yet?  Cool.  Keep watching this blog for further updates.  As soon as the book goes live I’ll post the links where you can find it.  If you like this series you’ll love this latest installment.

Bye for now

Ronni (aka Lady Hawk)
