Amazon lost my reviews so you get another free book.

Hi readers,

Story time: A while ago, I received the rights back for my Hearts in Orbit books. With a few edits, I republished them into the new Destiny’s Legacy series. They retained their titles which allowed me to request that the reviews be transferred to the new editions of the books. Everything worked well for Pirates of the Dark Nebula and Captives of the Kratzen, but something glitched on Amazon and all The Blarmling Dilemma reviews disappeared, (57 of them). These past few months I’ve been working with Amazon but they’ve concluded that they can not get those reviews back. Now it’s a hard fact that reviews, really help an author to promote their books. So without those reviews, it will make it harder for me to promote the book.

It’s heartbreaking, but I’m not letting it get me down. If you were one of the readers that reviewed it before, I’m asking you to repost your review here: https://books2read.com/u/47gMNA

I’m also putting The Blarmling Dilemma up for free now through Nov. 29th with hopes of garnering a few reviews. Click here to get your free Kindle copy. 

And if you like Science Fiction and Romance, you might enjoy some of these sexy reads:

Many, like The Blarmling Dilemma, are on sale and free to read on Kindle Unlimited. Check them out here: https://books.bookfunnel.com/outofthisworld-nov/cwtnfgdg78

Thanks and happy reading,

Amulet of the Fallen God is Free this weekend!

I’ve put Amulet of the Fallen God up for Free on Kindle this weekend through Tuesday, Nov. 22nd.

Amulet of the Fallen God

An epic fantasy tale set in a world of wizards, warriors, elves, and dragons.

When an ancient artifact falls into the hands of a young, inexperienced sorceress, Allsa, a battle-priestess of Thon, finds herself shepherding the young girl through a dangerous land, to find an ancient wizard from a tale she doesn’t even believe is true. Luckily, she has the help of a grumpy old dwarf, an obnoxious mercenary, an erudite elven wizard, and a new-wave minstrel.

Allsa can only wonder at the circumstances that made her the leader of this rag-tag band of adventurers. But the old human king is dead and the elven king is mad, and it’s up to her and her stalwart group to save the northlands from the impending Zarrum invasion.

Amulet of the Fallen God is an epic fantasy novel in the tradition of Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.

Destiny Updates

After spending the past year in space, plotting and consolidating my new Destiny Universe, I figured it was time for an update on the series.

The Destiny series:

Set in the first part of the 22nd century (about one hundred years from now) the Earth’s resources have been spent and humanity must move out into the galaxy and find new, lush planets to colonize. First to leave were the wealthy and powerful. They founded planets and created the Korg Empire, ruled by a council of the most powerful. Slowly, Earth became the place the Korg came seeking slaves to feed the growing ambitions of the empire.

To escape, the peoples of Earth created the Destiny Project. Colony ships sent beyond the influence of the Korg Empire to create free colonies in space. There’s subterfuge and corruption afoot within the system, but ships launch, each to its own planet, in search of freedom. The Destiny series tells the saga of this venture.

Destiny: Cloud Fist

Destiny: Cloud Fist cover image

A desperate exodus from Earth.

Indentured to the starship captain, young Michael ‘Kip’ Anders was his family’s only hope of fleeing Earth and its constant attacks from the Korg. But even four years out, the colony ship Cloud Fist is unable to escape the Korg’s firm grip on the galaxy. As factions form and unrest invades the ship, Kip finds his loyalties severely tested. Will the new colony fail before it even finds a planet to settle?

Destiny Cloud Fist is available in Kindle eBook and Paperback: Click Here

Also Free to Read on Kindle Unlimited.

Destiny: Morning Star

The Morning Star, strikes out on it’s mission to find and colonize a hospitable planet as far away from the evil Korg Empire as it can find, but enemies threaten from within and without. This is the story of the ship that was found in Destiny: Cloud Fist, and relates the tale of what happened to bring the ship to that point and what happened after.

Destiny: Morning Star is now posting on Kindle Vella at: https://www.amazon.com/Destiny-Season-2-Morning-Star/dp/B0B119JKGR/

The first three chapters are free to read. it will be published as a kindle eBook and Paperback early next year.

Destiny: Moon Rise

Cover Reveal!

[Coming soon to Kindle Vella]

Earth’s remaining population is in a desperate position. The victim of constant slave raids from the Korg Empire, and with no resources left to construct another Destiny colony ship, they are left to their own devices to survive. But Juanita Lopez has a plan.

Destiny’s Legacy

A Romantic Science Fiction Adventure Series.

One hundred years after the Destiny colony ships started exploring the galaxy, the Milky Way is settled. A strong Galactic Federation has been build on the ruins of the old Korg Empire. But danger and adventure still hide in the dark corners of the galaxy.

Destiny’s Legacy Pre-order

Slowly but surely, I’ve been editing my old Hearts in Orbit books to fit into my new Destiny Universe and today I’m happy to announce that the first two books are done and up for pre-order. You can reserve your copy of The Blarmling Dilemma and Pirates of the Dark Nebula today.

The Blarmling Dilemma.

“They’re not animals. They’re people!”

Phoebe Callista’s pleas fall on deaf ears and she’s forced to rescue two helpless Blarmlings from certain death. Fleeing across a backwater sector of the galaxy, with Galactic Marshals in hot pursuit, Phoebe falls into the hands of a handsome but determined bounty hunter.

Rigel Antares has captured wanted criminals throughout the galaxy rim, but he’s never come across anything like Phoebe Callista. The gorgeous blonde sure knows how to play the innocent, and something deep inside wants to believe her, but Rigel has problems of his own—a ship that’s falling apart and an unscrupulous Galactic Marshal looking for any excuse to send him back to the prison planets of the Theiler System.

An intergalactic circus, vicious space pirates, and a planet full of backtechers cross their paths as Phoebe and Rigel fight to save a pair of adorable Blarmlings.

The Blarmling Dilemma releases Sept. 7th. Reserve your copy here:

Luna Callista holds the key to a galaxy-changing new technology. When she’s captured by a ruthless band of deep-space pirates, she’s rescued by a man filled with dark secrets of his own. Who is Rik Mazar?

Galactic protector or rogue pirate?
After three years undercover among the Brotherhood of the Dark Nebula, Rik Mazar isn’t sure what side of the law he’s walking. In a world of murder and betrayal, his life goes on the line every day. But, protecting Luna Callista means putting his heart in as much danger as his hide.

A rusting service droid, a Ferang fortuneteller, and a ship full of back-water refugees are their only allies, as Luna and Rik fight to save a galaxy in peril.

There’s no such thing as werewolves…right?

Jack Hughes is cursed. Each full moon, he turns into a blood-crazed, hairy, wolf-headed creature. He’s learned to cope by locking himself in a cell each night to keep the creature from breaking free. It’s a dark secret he’s not willing to share with anyone. Then one moon-bright night, the creature inside him breaks free of its cell.

Sorceress Anna Brown is one of the leading experts on demons for the Arcanists. She knows Jack’s secret and how to help him…if he’ll let her. But the local demon lord is after Anna. She has a power he wants to control. Does she have enough magic to save Jack and keep the demons at bay?
