I’ll be finishing up my co-author project for the Dominion Rising boxset in the coming week and that means onward and forward with a new project. So…which one will it be? You decide! 🙂
News! News! News! 🙂 Sorceress at War, book 4 in my Gargoyle and Sorceress Tales urban fantasy series, is now up for preorder on Amazon and Kobo. (Nook and iBooks are always slower, but those will be coming soon. Maybe tomorrow or the next day.)
Anyways, Sorceress at War is almost here and it has been fun to write about the farther escapades of Lillian, Gregory, Shadowlight and Corporal Anna McKenzie.
To my readers–thank you for being awesome!
Here, have a blurb:
War is coming. The Lady of Battles will have it no other way.
The demi-goddess is moving her pawns and dark knights into place, preparing to strike. Earth must be ready, but first Lillian needs to ensure that the uneasy alliance between the Fae and the human military does not fail. Every ally is needed if earth is to have any hope of surviving the coming war.
As fate draws friends and enemies closer together and demi-gods arrange their pieces on a vast otherworldly chess board, one new player has appeared unexpectedly—Lillian’s new doppelganger clone. She isn’t certain if it’s pure, old-fashioned jealousy or something more sinister that has her watching the newly cloned Sorceress with distrust, but the fact remains that her doppelganger’s allegiance remains unknown.
For the good of the alliance, Lillian must find out if this new sorceress is on their side, or playing for the Battle Goddess. Or if she has an agenda of her own, one that no one can predict.

Death’s Queen made it as high as #5275 in the Amazon store on launch day. Woot! It has since dropped back, but that’s to be expected as I did almost zero marketing with this one and it’s not exclusive to amazon, so you have to sell twice as many books to achieve the same rank to make up for the lack of Kindle Unlimited borrows. I’m newly wide, so haven’t gained much traction at the other retailers yet. Here’s the numbers for Death’s Queen over the last four days, including pre-order sales. Amazon: 397, Kobo: 31, iBooks: 7, and Nook: 4. So, yeah, small potatoes. More readers will discover the book over time. Marketing always helps, too.
Anyways, I’ll be increasing the price to $4.99 later this weekend, so grab it now if you want it at a discount. If you’re new to this series, I would suggest starting with book one. You can get Betrayal’s Price FREE by clicking here: KOBO, NOOK, iBOOKS, and AMAZON.
That unknown being terrifies her, but when Lord Master Trensler orders his acolytes to capture Lamarra, she must flee her home. To her dismay, she is rescued by tomb guards sent by her dead king.
Lamarra soon learns her fate is just as terrible as she thought, but Dead King Soryn isn’t anything like she feared. He’s worse. Yet he’s also gentle and kind and he knows a way to track and destroy the acolytes’ evil god.
She has the power to save the world; it’s his job is to stop her.
Theda is a homeless drug addict who cares about two things: eating and fixing – not necessarily in that order. If new Earth needs saving from the tyrannical clutches of the Beast, it will have to wait until she’s sober.
Now if she can just trick out her gift to pay for that fix without getting killed, she’ll have the apocalypse nailed. Too bad for her that religion of any kind is outlawed and punishable by death, and too bad she’s been targeted by a bounty hunter for selling visions.
Because now the Beast knows she’s out there and that means her next fix just might be her last.

I’m an introvert environmentalist. (Not one of those big brave, put my life on the line types—Although, I highly respect people that are willing to put their lives on the line for our species’ and the planet’s future.)
Instead, I try to consider the earth in my day to day lifestyle. I have a car, but I live close enough to walk to work, so I walk. I plant trees and garden to provide food and habitat for animals. I try to be energy efficient as much as I’m able.
Sometimes my environmental mindset works its way into my writing. I try not to club my readers over the head with it.
However, I just watched the documentary Racing Extinction.
Maybe I need to work environmental issues into my writing more often. The human race needs to get its collective head out of its collective _____ (fill in the blank) if we want a planet for our grandchildren to inherit.
Stone’s Song, book 2 of my Avatars series, has the most blatant environmental theme. In it, an ancient siren awakens to find the ocean realm slowly dying because of what humans have been doing to it for the last hundred years. She sets out to destroy the human race to save everything else. (So, yeah, villain. But she’s the one villain I’ve always felt bad about killing off in the end. Although I gave her a hero’s death in the end.)
Wish I had thought about this sooner. I would have done some kind of promo/fundraiser for a charity.
So in lieu of that, I’m going to try my hand at fundraising for an environmental charity. I’ll give all proceeds from Stone’s Song to a charity. I’ll give myself a year (Earth Day 2017) to see how much I can make. I’ll post updates throughout the year. I just came up with this in the last hour, so yeah, not really well thought out yet…..
I’ll call this a work in progress.
Yep. Stone’s Divide is now live on Amazon. Woot. This was my first attempt at a pre-order and I must say, pre-orders are a little stressful. But it’s up, I got the final file uploaded in time, and Amazon didn’t have an epic fail. Life is good. I’ve even lined up a bunch of promo sites next week for Stone’s Kiss (Book 1). It will be free and book two will be part of a 0.99 Kindle Countdown Deal with the hope that those two will drive traffic towards book three.
The only direct promotion Stone’s Divide got was to my tiny little mailing list (35 fans and growing. lol.) If you’re reading this and would like to join (just click this link to go to my website and sign up using the form on the right hand side) and you will receive my future newsletters, where I mention new releases and other promotions, giveaways, and chances to get advanced reading copies for review. My first ARC (advanced reading copy) giveaway will be for book one of my new sci-fi. It’ will be rolling out sometime late November or early December. So if you want a chance to get it for free, sign up and I’ll mention how to get it in a future newsletter. (It will be a while as I still have to finish it, get it edited and have a cover designed for it.) But I digress.
If you haven’t already picked up a copy of Stone’s Divide, there is still time. The $2.99 sale price will remain in effect until Nov 1.
I just wanted to let my readers know about a couple exciting events. First, Gregory and his lady love, Lillian will be making another appearance very soon in Stone’s Divide (release date October 8th) It’s available now for Pre-order.
On a side note, if you’re a fan of my other series, In Deception’s Shadow, I’m working on Death’s Queen and a novella called, Maiden’s Wolf, set in the same world. I had hoped to get these two out this summer, but a pesky Spire Warship by the name of Vengeance got in the way. He’s the A.I. hero in my new Sci-fi series. My newsletter readers will be meeting him at some point in the future, as I plan to give away advanced reading copies to anyone interested.
I’ve also created my first Author Newsletter. (Yah, I know I’m way behind the times.) You can see it here. Although, it’s the exact same information that’s in this post. If you would like to get emails about my new releases, promotional sales and freebies, you can join my mailing list by signing up on the homepage of my website (under the banner picture on the right-hand side) here.
I’ll start posting more frequent updates on my website, blog, and Facebook author’s page.
