A new release and a free book for you.

Son of Thunder is live!!

Yes, Son of Thunder is now available to read on Kindle and in paperback, and soon will be available in audio, performed by the amazing Larry Gorman.

The man looked like a god. Then again, he was one. . . 

Jord Thorson was a god-the son of Thor, the Norse God of Thunder. In his search to find his missing father, Jord seeks out the mortal, Meghan Larson, who is in possession of his only clue-Megingjörð, Thor’s magical belt of power. But when the belt decides to take matters into its own hands, locking itself around Meghan’s waist, Jord and Meghan are plunged into the middle of a massive conflict that rages across the heavens.

Giants, magical artifacts, and a golden city in the clouds weren’t exactly what Meghan Larson expected when that amazing belt arrived at her museum. Now Megingjörð is stuck around her waist and talking to her in her head. She’s got to be dreaming, but with the wonders around her and hunky Jord Thorson at her side, Meghan’s not sure she wants to wake up.

Daughter of Darkness – cover reveal and pre-sale

The release of Son of Thunder is only days away…woot!

And today I am happy to announce that Book 2, Daughter of Darkness will be coming out November 3rd in Kindle and (hopefully) paperback editions with audio books for the entire series in the works by the amazingly talented Larry Gorman.

Here’s the new cover and blurb for Daughter of Darkness:

“It wouldn’t be the first time I’d been kicked out of heaven.”


After a thousand years in exile, the goddess Nott learned to live without interaction with the other Norse Gods. Hidden away amidst the devastation of a dead heaven, and working to aid the besieged mortals of Midgaard, Nott found peace. The night is her realm, and darkness her best friend. But war finds her. And her grandfather, Loki, wants her at his side when he conquers Asgaard.

And then there’s Tyr…

Visions of the Night Goddess have haunted Tyr’s dreams for a millennium. Unjustly accused, she’d fled Asgaard before he could stop her. Now, circumstances offer him an opportunity to reconnect with the woman who’d walked away from the Golden Realm—the woman who’d eluded him for a thousand years, yet always haunted his dreams. But Nott’s family ties threaten to put the goddess on the other side, in a war that’s blazing across the heavens.

Daughter of Darkness is now available for pre-sale in Kindle format at: https://www.amazon.com/Daughter-Darkness-Heavenly-War-Book-ebook/dp/B08K7NCQ78/

Ignore the paperback link, as this is still the first edition (now out of print), thought eventually the 2nd edition paperback will be linked there.

The heavens are rumbling – Cover reveal and series update.

The reboot of the Heavenly Wars series is in full swing. Requiem for Poseidon is out in Kindle and Paperback editions with an audio version in the works. #Free to read on Kindle Unlimited (just 99¢ otherwise)

This book also contains the first chapter of Son of Thunder, A newly re-edited version of the story that came out way back in 2013..

I am in the process of re-editing and updating every book in the series, toning down the graphic sexual content and moving the story from the romance genre and making it more of an Urban Fantasy. My hope it to reach a wider audience.

Also today I’m happy to share the new cover of Son of Thunder:

Son of Thunder

By S. C. Mitchell

The man looked like a god. Then again, he was one. . .

Jord Thorson was a god-the son of Thor, the Norse God of Thunder. In his search to find his missing father, Jord seeks out the mortal, Meghan Larson, who is in possession of his only clue-Megingjörð, Thor’s magical belt of power.

Son of Thunder will be releasing in Kindle format on Oct. 1st, and is now available for pre-order. Reserve your copy today here.

Paperback and audio versions will also be releasing soon.

I’m now hard at work updating book 2, Daughter of Darkness. Stay tuned for more information.

Stay Safe,

Cover reveal – Requiem for Poseidon (2nd edition)

Today I took down the first edition of Requiem for Poseidon. Oh, it’s still there, old cover and all, but soon it will magically change to the 2nd edition with the new cover. Here’s what the cover will look like:

Now this magic will only happen on the Kindle version of the book. The old 1st edition paperback will endure, though the book will remain out-of-print. You will be able to purchase used versions on Amazon there if some are available. A new, matching paperback will eventually appear as well, linked with the new Kindle version.

This story, while short, has changed a bit-enough to warrant this being a 2nd edition-although the ending and it’s effects on the Heavenly War series remain the same..I have also added in the first chapter of the new version of Son of Thunder in this volume.

And speaking of the Heavenly War series, yes, it’s coming back soon. Release date for the 2nd edition of Son of Thunder is scheduled for Oct. 1st. A cover reveal and pre-order link will be coming soon. This book is done and I am hard at work on the second book, Daughter of Darkness, which I am hoping to release Nov. 1st.

Stay tuned. It’s going to be a wild couple of months here.

(Or should I have said…a Wilde couple of months here?)

A Wylde Raven award? Maybe.

Wylde

By S. C. Mitchell

Forced to undergo experimental procedures that grafted wolf DNA into his own and then given super healing powers, Jonathan Wylde wants nothing to do with civilization, preferring instead to run with his wolf pack. A reluctant member of the Xi Force super team, he keeps to himself unless his talents are needed.

Dove Locklear returns home after spending exciting and adventurous weeks with the Xi Force super team, and reconnecting with her childhood friend, John Wylde. But danger lurks in her father’s genetics lab. An agent of Red Guard, with nefarious plans, whisks her away at gunpoint to a secret Russian facility.

When his closest friend, Dove Locklear, is kidnapped, Wylde needs to learn to work with his team if he wants to save her. He knows where they took her, and the danger she’s in. He’ll do whatever it takes to rescue to her, even if that means confronting the man who created him: his father.

Wylde, and the rest of the Xi Force Series books are available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MPBQ3J4

Making my stand…

I’m an old, straight, white guy. Pretty much the poster child of privilege in America and in many places around the world. I’m not famous. I’m not rich. I’m not much of an “influencer.” I’m just a storyteller who happens to have won a couple of awards for the novels I’ve written.

My blog and my platform are for the promotion of myself and my writing, and in normal times I would never post anything about politics, religion, or social issues unless it had something to do with something I was writing.

These are not normal times.

With the chaos erupting in our streets across the country, I feel we need to use whatever platforms we have, to stand up for what we believe. So here is what I believe:

 

Black lives matter. Black lives matter poster or banners. Black lives matter social protest

It is not right that certain communities need to live in fear of the very security force put in place to protect us all. Yes, there are other ethnicites who suffer this as well, but the black community has been historically held down. And if your answer to Black Lives Matter is All Lives Matter, you have not been listening and really don’t understand what the phrase means.

When two (or more) people find a loving relationship with each other, in a form that is mutually acceptable, it is a good thing. I may not understand what drew you together or the bonds you’ve forged, but it is wrong for me to judge or condemn your relationship. Love who and how you need to.

Women’s rights are human rights word on pink paper texture background

I am a proud feminist. A woman’s body is her own.

No Human is illegal protest banner at a political march

We are all people. Your country of origin was not your choice. America is strengthened by every diversity we embrace. Any culture, any religion should be accepted here, and the pathway to citizenship should be easy and accessible to all.

Science is Real

The earth is not flat. Climate change is real. And while I’m not fully trusting of the big drug companies, COVID-19 is showing the necessity for inoculations and herd immunity. We deny science to our own peril.

…and be excellent.

…and they’re gone.

Both Son of Thunder and Daughter of Darkness have been taken down, and are no longer available. If you purchased either of these book in the past, thank you very much. The Heavenly War is set in a world I love and have wanted to revisit and expand on. The original series was to be six books, and I have lots of pieces and parts lying around that I am excited to be dragging out of the mothballs as I re-imagine this series and get set to bring it back in line with my new aesthetic. The explicit sex scenes will be gone, the fantasy elements amped up, and some of the more dated scenes will be updated.

A few pieces remain in the wild:

MySexyValentine600 DigitalValentines Day Canceled is set in the Heavenly War world, and is part of the My Sexy Valentine collection. Someday I will get the right back to this story and will rewrite it to fit in with the new series. I’m in no hurry on this one because I don’t want to disrupt the work of the other authors, and the other outstanding stories in this collection, so if you are interested in this one, expect the old, super-sexy style.

You can get it here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SSFM1OC/

A Requiem for Poseidon (Heavenly Wars) by [S. C. Mitchell]A Requiem for Poseidon is a stand-alone short story, and one that works into Daughter of Darkness. This I published as a promo book, and it will soon be pulled to be reworked. But I’m leaving it up for now, as I’m not ready for this project yet. This story needs a complete rework, as the sex is intricate to the story, and taking it out will require an extensive re-imagining…I think.

So it’s still available here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AONMOKQ/

 

Right now I’m working hard on the 2nd edition of Son of Thunder. More news as it happens but expect a cover reveal and a release date sometime in the near future.

Last chance to get Heavenly War books in their original forms.

Today I received my rights back for Son of Thunder and Daughter of Darkness. Very soon, Soul mate publishing will be taking these books off Amazon, but you still have time to pick them up in their original published versions if you’d like.

Heavenly Wars Series

 

While they last you can get Son of Thunder and Daughter of Darkness here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0753FXJFT

But the war is far from over…

In the next few months I will be editing these two books, bringing them more in line with my new writing style – more urban fantasy, less romance. And there will be more books coming out in the series.

Stay Tuned.
