Here, by Popular Demand

e-book

 

Hi folks,

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I did expect to post with the news of a new book weeks ago, but it hasn’t happened yet and I’m told it could be another week or longer. So, since I’ve had a number of inquiries about the book to come, I’ll tell you a bit about it. In Children of the Wolf we met the werewolves as they helped the vampires rescue the young pups. Now, in Agent Wolf, one of the youngsters is coming of age. Here’s a small taste from between the covers:

Clara sighed again and looked at her hands. “I’ve been studying your DNA,” she admitted.

“And?”

“I’ve found something strange quite active in it. I’ve only ever seen it before in Torvil and the vampires. The werewolves don’t have that marker.”

“Clara, what are you trying to tell me here?”

“I believe you’re immortal, like the vampires, Ronni. You’ll never grow old, you’ll revive if killed, and all injuries will heal at super speed. I believe you’re immortal and indestructible.”

Rocked back by that announcement, Rhonda swallowed hard and looked at her friend with wide eyes. “Are you certain of this? Of course you are, or you wouldn’t have said anything. Wow. Holy shit. Wow. So, now what am I supposed to do? Clara, why did you even tell me this?”

 Okay, that’s enough for now. If I don’t have a cover to show you in the next few days I’ll post another sneak peek. Meanwhile, it’s back to work on the next Elvish Chronicle for me.

Feedback

Hi folks,

So far the feedback about the new release, Vampire’s Lair has been delightfully positive, including a few suggestions for future books with these characters. It always does my heart good (ego too) when I get this sort of response to a new release. Having said all that, I went into this book already thinking about the one to follow. No, I won’t tell you about it yet. hehehe I’m still looking for more feedback on this one. So far I think it is one of my best efforts yet.

e-book

So, pick up your copy today and let me know what you think.

Now, here’s the answer to your question, anonymous lady, in my blog as requested.

Yes, my books average about 60K words. they are all stories about strong women and written for strong women and those who love them. I use this word count as the books are meant to be read in an evening. The idea is to take you away from a stress filled world and immerse you in a world of adventure where you will get a satisfactory solution at the end. No cliffhangers, even if the book is in a series. Yes, I believe in happy endings.

Oh, and thanks for the feedback on the Children of the Goddess series. there will be more to come, I promise.

Okay, that’s all for now.

Evolving

Hi folks,

Well, I’ve told you a bit about the Children of the Wild series. Now I’ll tell you more, that series is soon to have its own logo, cool, right? The manuscript has made it’s final pass through the hands of the editor and now is with the publisher. I’ve got my fingers crossed for an early February release. Right now we’re waiting for the cover to be finished. It’ll need to be tidied up, but here’s a peek at the raw material.

I confess I can’t wait to see the finished product.

What? You want another peek between the covers? Well, okay, I guess. Here goes:

Marlene had not gone far when she heard a shot in the distance. She picked up the pace. Sound carried well in the mountains and it took a while to locate the source of the gunfire. She found a man with a rifle cowering behind an old truck. He was trembling and obviously had soiled himself.

What happened here?” she asked.

B-b-b-bear, big fucking bear. Big as a house bear… Nice tits. What happened to your shirt, girl? Come here and tell me about it.”

With a sigh Marlene realized she was naked to the waist as she had discarded the shirt and bra ruined by the shotgun blast. “I went skinny dipping in the river to escape the heat. Damn kids stole my clothes. I chased them and got it all back except my shirt. I don’t suppose you have a spare with you?”

Okay, that’s it. Next time I hope to have the completed cover to show you, or better yet, a URL where you can get the book. For now, just a reminder that this will be book three in the Children of the Wild Series. You can get book #1, Immortal Tigress, here:

Tigress

Book #2, Children of the Wolf is here:

Werewolf

And on that note, see you next time.

More About Vampires

Hi folks,

So, in the last two posts I’ve told you about how the Vampires came to be and how one was raised to be king. We also learned how the werewolves came to be under his protection. It’s didn’t end there. First they came into existence in this tale.

e-book

Harald’s reign as king had barely begun before he was embroiled in a war to save the werewolves as we learned in this tale.

e-book

But that wasn’t the end, merely the beginning. The king soon learned of more non-humans and knew he had to find them a sanctuary, a place to keep them out of the public eye. I’ll tell you of that search and more in just a few days from now. The next tale in this series is called Vampire’s Lair. Here’s a peek between the covers:

Blood slowly dripped from the blade of the axe held tightly in her hand. Although the drops made no sound as they hit the mossy forest floor, she was keenly aware of each and every drop slipping away, watching its painfully slow descent to the ground. Each drop that fell held her transfixed as if it was the only thing in her world.
A flicking tongue licked hungry lips as another droplet fell towards the moss as though in slow motion. She fought for control, to break the maddening focus brought on by the searing need for blood. “Control, must regain control. Hungry, so hungry, burning thirst …”
A soft voice cut through the fog in her brain. “What’s your name? Think, girl, what’s your name, tell me.” It wasn’t actually a voice, just a memory of a voice heard ages ago, but it was enough.
“Marlene,” she gasped, “my name is Marlene.” That did it. The rest of the world snapped back into focus.
The baying of the dog and the shouts of the men were clear to her now. Gripping the axe tightly, she ducked behind a large tree and fought the distracting scent of blood. “The damned bear can wait,” she muttered, as she allowed her body to change into the vampire’s killing mode. “I need to feed.”

So, keep a sharp eye out for the Vampire’s Lair, coming soon.

Wolf At The Door

Hey folks,

This may come as a surprise, but I’m happy to tell you there a wolf at the door. Actually, it’s Children of the Wolf at the door, or at a book seller near you. This one has been in the works for a long while, but has finally arrived on the shelves. Children of the Wolf is the sequel to Immortal Tigress. It is the story of a people discovered and destroyed by modern society. With their complete demise in sight they turn to the only one who might be willing to help them, the Vampire King. Check it out.

Children Of The Wolf Front

E-Book

Here’s a quick peek between the pages.

He nodded and knelt across the body from her. Kylie gasped as Ella gashed her own wrist and let the blood drip on the charred lips of the corpse. “By the blood of the mother. Live again.”

Harald nodded then gashed his own wrist, holding it out so the dripping blood would reach her lips. “By the blood of the brother. Live again.”

The body stirred slightly and moaned softly. Ella grabbed the arm of her captive, slashing it open with a fang. The blood flowed freely onto Gudrun’s hungry lips. “By the blood of the killer. Live again. Rise up my daughter.”

Happy reading. Hope you enjoy the book.

ROW80-2Blogo1

Okay, so I’ll confess I’ve been on a roll lately. The target for this round was 60K words, or a complete first draft of 60=K words. The tally as of this morning was 52K.

I’ll be the first to admit this is a fast first draft and will need to be set aside for a while then approached with fresh eyes for a good tidying up.

So, that’s me. Here’s hoping you folks are also reaching or exceeding your goals for this round.

Immortal

Hi Folks,

I’m all excited today and with good reason. I do have some farm news, lots of it, but for today I want to tell you about a re-release of Immortal Tigress. This has been in the works for months. This is one of my favorite books and now is available in paperback as well as e-book. Here’s the new cover and links.

  
For millions of years a rogue meteor hurtles through space towards Earth, glowing from the vast fields of radiation through which it has passed. A primitive human female gazes in wonder as the burning invader hurtles toward the ground, unaware of the great beast stalking her. All three meet in an instant. 

Flash forward to the present, yes, she is still here, she has always been here, in the shadows, ready to strike from the darkness with gleaming fangs.


This one is me putting forth a completely different take on vampires, their origins, strengths, weaknesses, and struggles to survive and remain unseen by humanity.
Want a different look at an old legend, check this one out. I am currently working on the sequel. It’s about the Vampires meeting the werewolves. Here’s a small taste:

Cursing softly, and wishing for a fur coat as she trudged through the snow in human form, the vampire shivered. Ah to hell with it, she stripped off her clothes and buried them in the snow before changing into the saber-toothed tiger; the cat could track the maddened killer more easily, and she had a fur coat.
Okay, that’s all you get for today. Tee Hee 

I’ll bring you up to speed on the farm news in a day or two. For now, have a stellar day overflowing with blessings and laughter.

It’s check-in time again and I’m feeling a lot better about my progress.  This is turning out to be a productive week. What did I do? Let’s see:
Goals.
One: Write something at least five times or more each week.
So far so good since Sunday.
Two: Write a minimum of 2500 on my WIP words each week.
Rolling here. I have over 3000 words on my new WIP, another 1000+ on a book I’m revising, and now I can do some catch up for what I missed last week. Awesome!
Three: Publish at least six new novels in 2012.
I did not publish a single book this week. I did, however, put the Immortal Tigress up FREE for three days on Amazon. Today is day two of that promo. Check it out here:
Four: Read and review six or more first novels by new authors. (I don’t give bad reviews, so don’t panic, I’m friendly, honest. J
I still owe Robert Taylor a review of A Breath of Hope. I will get on that this afternoon and, with luck, get it published on my blog tomorrow. Check out the book here:
Cover for 'A Breath of Hope'
Five: do more to be supportive of new and struggling writers.
I’m trying to help an aspiring author find sources of information he is unfamiliar with. It counts.
Six: Publish a small collection of erotic short stories. Hey, I’ve been around for over sixty years, and this one is on my bucket list. I will make it happen in 2012.
This has gotten pushed aside recently, but I hope to get back to it soon.
Ok, that’s about it for today folks. How is it going for you? Did you hit your targets? Let me know how it went for you.
Check out my Amazon page here:

Breathe

I’m calling this post breathe, because I need to remind myself to take the time to do just that. Seriously. This past two weeks have been busy and then some. This is week started out brilliant as I launched my new Vampire book, the Immortal Tigress. This is a different take on the beginnings of the legend. I published the novel on Smashwords then set about promoting and publicizing it. It was much later in the day I learned that Smashwords was down.
That was a bit of a shock, and they stayed down for nearly two days. How the heck was I supposed to deal with that? I had spread the word, but no one could find the book. It was time for some damage control, but what can you do really? 
After I got back from the city Wednesday I knew it was time for action. Thursday I went to the Smashwords page and opted out of their distribution to Amazon, seeing as how it never materialized anyway.
I set up my author page on Amazon and slowly, one at a time, uploaded all my books to Amazon myself. The deed is done now and all my work is available on Amazon now. Cool. I even bit the bullet and listed my new book for their lending library. So, there is where the week went. It was madness, but it is done now. All my work can be found on Amazon here:
You can also find the Immortal Tigress here:
I will keep you posted on how this all works out. Just go to the right of the page and hit the follow button to keep tabs on my misadventures. Thanks!

ROW80 Check-in #13

It’s check-in time again. Where does the week go? Anyway, it’s been a week of ups and down, but I’ll get to that in a minute. First, the goals:
Goals.
One: Write something at least five times or more each week.
I’m falling down here, but will make it up before Sunday’s check-in.
Two: Write a minimum of 2500 on my WIP words each week.
Ok, this is where it all begins. After consulting with my editor, my WIP was put on the back burner in favor of a fresh start on another project, the second in the new Vampire series. Sigh.  Will get it started tomorrow.
Three: Publish at least six new novels in 2012.
Here’s where I hit the heartbreak. I finally published the Vampire story I’ve been talking about for ages. I am quite pleased with this one. It is my best work by far. No sooner did it publish when Smashwords went down for two days. Meanwhile I was blithely promoting the book like crazy, but no one could get to it. Bugger and damn! So, let’s try it again.  Here she is:
 For millions of years a rogue meteor hurtles through space towards Earth, glowing from the vast fields of radiation through which it has passed. A primitive human female gazes in wonder as the burning invader hurtles toward the ground, unaware of the great beast stalking her. All three meet in an instant. Flash forward to the present, yes, she is still here, she has always been here, stalking us, feeding off us, and so have those she has created.

Back to my goals:
Four: Read and review six or more first novels by new authors. (I don’t give bad reviews, so don’t panic, I’m friendly, honest. J
I finished reading Keeper by Kristine Williams. Great story and I will post a review tomorrow on my blog.
Five: do more to be supportive of new and struggling writers.
I’m all set to start a new book, but haven’t decided which one yet. I’ll let you know on Sunday.
Six: Publish a small collection of erotic short stories. Hey, I’ve been around for over sixty years, and this one is on my bucket list. I will make it happen in 2012.
Working, but the research is demanding. 🙂
Ok, that’s about it for today folks. How is it going for you? Did you hit your targets? Let me know how it went for you.

Vampire

Hi folks, here I go again, blowing my own horn, but this time I can’t help it. Today I published my latest effort, Immortal Tigress. I know I have been talking about this one for a while, but it is just that I am so very pleased with it. Everybody seems to be writing about vampires these days so I thought I’d take a crack at it too.
Many of the book I have self-published recently were written years ago. I tidied them up a bit, but didn’t make a lot of changes. The reasons for this are simple. I didn’t want to dilute the emotion of the story as I felt it back then, and I wanted make it easy for folks to see my progress as a writer. However, the Immortal Tigress is a recent work and I am rather proud of it.  Here’s where to find her:

 For millions of years a rogue meteor hurtles through space towards Earth, glowing from the vast fields of radiation through which it has passed. A primitive human female gazes in wonder as the burning invader hurtles toward the ground, unaware of the great beast stalking her. All three meet in an instant. Flash forward to the present, yes, she is still here, she has always been here, stalking us, feeding off us, and so have those she has created.
This cover was produced by the super talented Justin, and this time he has outdone himself as he captured the lady just the way I wanted.
I hope you enjoy reading this story as much as I enjoyed writing it. Feedback is always welcome.
