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)

Who is Lady Blue?

Hi folks,

Last time I introduced you to some of Lady Hawk’s history.  People have been asking for some background on Lady Blue, so, here’s what Penny will let me tell.

She was born to a poor family, named Penny, as her father said the birth cost him his last cent.  That attitude continued until her fifth birthday when he didn’t come home from work.  Penny Preston never saw or heard from her father again.

After her father abandoned them, Penny’s mother began drinking heavily.  All her bitterness and resentment were delivered to Penny in the form of unrelenting emotional abuse.  School was no better, for she was bullied and mocked for her obvious poverty.  By the time Penny was fifteen she had contemplated suicide several times, came close twice.

When Penny was sixteen she fell down a steep embankment in the highlands of Scotland and there she inadvertently awaken something that had slept for long ages, and she was changed forever.  She became Lady Blue, an elusive vigilante who fights the bullies, defends the weak, and isn’t gentle about it.  You  can find the rest of her story here:

e-book

I didn’t go into a lot of this history when I wrote Lady Blue’s story, after all, it’s her story of life after the change came upon her.  Any and all of us who survived child abuse can tell you, every damn one of us dreamed of, and prayed for, that elusive supreme being to come and grant us the power, the power to make the pain stop, the bullying, and the emotional abuse, to give us the power to make ourselves safe.  Lady Blue’s story is one way that might look if it happened.

Okay folks, that’s a look at Lady Blue.  Go ahead, check out the rest of her story.

Now, on to other business.  I’m really hoping to get Race the Wind out this month.  Race the Wind will be the sixth book in the Children of the Wild series, more adventures of the Lady Hawk.

So, back to work for me.

Bright Blessings

Power and Opinions.

Hi folks,

Words can have a great deal of power, and words well written even more so.  I try to use my words to entertain, to carry the reader from this world of stress to a different world, give them an adventure, take them away for a few hours.  Sometimes I get it right, and sometimes I don’t.  This time I think I got it right.  I know each person experiences a story differently, and that experience can be good or bad.  Here’s a couple of reviews of The Oregon Incident which tell me that, in these folks opinion, I got it right.

 Wow November 12, 2017
I’ve got to say this one brought tears to my eyes, yes cried like a baby, but it’s such a good story.  Book five is just as good as the other four, great characters and the new characters are just as interesting.
What a great series November 15, 2017
This, as all the rest of the Children of the Wild, was a great story. Familiar characters and new characters all blending into new experiences. Lady Hawk is turning into a very strong character in her own right. This story brings Mobutu’s actions back into focus. Touching once again with the atrocities of his madness and bringing the wolves & vampires to the front defending themselves and the humans.
Get your copy today folks, cause I’m already working on the next book in the series.  Remember to drop a comment and sign up for the newsletter.  This will enter you for the chance to win a spot in the next book of the series as a character.
Enjoy

Yep, She Did It Again.

Hey folks,

Well, she did it again.  The publisher put up Novan Witch for $0.99.  I have no idea how long the sale will last, so grab a copy today.

Novan Witch by Prudence MacLeod

e-book

Got it, okay great, now before you start reading, let me tell you how it came to be.  I had an idea for a series about a race of super humans.  As I began to work on it I realized I had way too much back story, so I decided to make the back story a novel on it’s own.  So far so good, but I was barely a few chapters in when I realized the back story would need more than one book to do it right.  The result?  The back story went five novels, but now I think I’ve got it.

Yes, in the end the Novan Witch became the lead in for an entire series, a series that was written as a back story for another series. (which I have yet to write.)

So, that’s it, the story behind the story.  Now, go ahead and enjoy the story.

Bless
