Amulet of the Fallen God – Free

Alright, so I have this epic fantasy book (that will one day be part of a series, I promise). Because of some of my other projects, it came out with little fanfare and is riding way under the radar, so I’m hoping you all can help me out a bit.

And don’t worry, it won’t cost you a cent. For the next few days, the Kindle version of the book is free. It is also free to read anytime on Kindle Unlimited.

Here’s the book:

Amulet of the Fallen God

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.

I would be so grateful if you would pick up a copy to help the Amazon algorithm gods take notice of it. And if you do read it, please give it an honest review. I’d love to hear what you think of it.

Thanks,

Destiny (Season 1) is complete.

Today I sent the last three episodes of Destiny (Season 1): Cloud Fist to my editor. The story is complete, and I’m quite happy with it.

There will be a new episode out tomorrow and every Wednesday from now on until the story is complete. If you’re a fan of Kindle Vella, check it out at: https://www.amazon.com/kindle-vella/story/B095XKSZ6Q

If Vella doesn’t fit your reading style, don’t despair, the story will be out in paperback and Kindle eBook format shortly after the end of the year. And it will be free to read on Kindle Unlimited.

Plus, coming soon will be Destiny (Season 2): Morning Star. These stories will for the basis of my new Destiny Universe where i will be placing the updated versions of my Hearts in Orbit series once I get the rights back from my publisher next summer. Look for Blarmlings, Backtechers, and Space Pirates as the universe expands. It’s kind of like having my own big bang.

Find your next adventure in a book,

Kindle Vella and the new Destiny Universe

It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time for a new episode of Destiny: Cloud Fist. Episode 26: Battleship Siege just went live and the story is starting to wind to a close. There are still a few things Michael needs to accomplish, and the story will probably span forty or so episodes by the time it’s done, but I’m already planning the next couple of stories in the Destiny universe.

For the latest episode, or to catch up on the story, go to: https://www.amazon.com/kindle-vella/story/B095XKSZ6Q

Or check out the story wherever you read kindle books.

I also want to point out that my Hearts in Orbit books also take place in the Destiny Universe, though a couple hundred years later in the timeline.

Now, you probably won’t see blarmlings popping up in Destiny: Cloud Fist, but you should know they are there, and will probably figure into a future story.

I just thought you’d like to know.

Destiny: Cloud Fist Update.

It’s Wednesday and time for another episode of Destiny: Cloud Fist.

I’m happy to report that there are now 19 episodes up, ready for binge-reading if you haven’t started yet. Check you Kindle device or go to: https://www.amazon.com/kindle-vella/product/B095XKSZ6Q

“What?” You say. “There’s a new episode of What if? today as well.”

Yes! And I am very excited for that, but surely you have time for a little reading, don’t you?

Remember, the first three episodes of Destiny: Cloud Fist are free to read, and it you like it, it’s only pennies per episode after that.

Thanks for stopping by,

Steve

As the leader of Xi Force, Joel Weisberg is always looking for new superheroes for his team.

Still he isn’t complaining when the event finds him a new Xi Force member and a new love. Now she just needs some training and some time.

But when an old enemy comes back with new powers and captures Joel, it’s up to Kayla to lead the Xi Force against her. But can they rescue Joel before he’s murdered . . . again?

Captives of the Kratzen

Hearts in Orbit volume 3

A Science Fiction Romance Novel

Blurb:

“We don’t even know where we are?”

Captured, stripped, and imprisoned in an alien menagerie, Tina la Cross finds herself the subject of an alien research facility, far from home. But at least she’s not alone. Her friend, Carter Arcturus, a man she’s held secret feelings for since they met, is imprisoned with her.

Carter has been intrigued with Tina for months, but their active schedule hadn’t offered any dating opportunities. Being thrown into a cage together naked really doesn’t qualify as a first date. He needs to keep his eyes open for an escape opportunity and off Tina’s sexy form.

When Carter and Tina are rescued from their prison by their Blarmling friend, Kirtl, the three begin a desperate journey across an alien galaxy. Danger and passions mix as two hearts go into orbit to find safe passage home across an alien galaxy.

Hearts in Orbit: Volume 3 – Captives of the Kratzen is a science fiction romance set in the far-flung space traveling future, continuing the series’ course across galaxies filled with love and adventure.

Desperate Bride (Forever Brides) by [Fenichel, A.S.]

Today’s topic comes from the wonderful A.S. Fenichel – The year is half over! OMG! Tell us about how you organize your world? Do you keep a day planner? Do you use your phone? Is organization important to you or is your life in total chaos and you love it?

Now, I am not the most organized person in the world. I rarely make lists, and don’t have a daily planner. Hell, I rarely have a daily plan. It’s usually just a mental list of what I’d like to accomplish.

That said, I do have a shared Google Calendar that I share with my wife for the big, important events I don’t want to lose track of. But other than that, each day is kind of a crap shoot.

Maybe I can pick up some tips from the other bloggers today, so I’m heading over to Leslie Hachtel’s post, where the Romance Writer’s Blog hop continues: https://lesliehachtelwriter.wordpress.com/

Today’s topic comes from the wonderful Jenna Da Sie – Start from the end. You’re the ghost of Christmas future. Write about your life from your funeral to the present. How were you celebrated?

Grim, yet interesting.

I hope people will smile and laugh when they remember me. I know grief is part of the process but . . . ugh.

As an author, I hope my books will live on and continued to be read. And while I don’t have any deep-seated religious beliefs, I do hope there is something beyond.

I think my greatest worry is that I know I will die with so many unwritten stories and characters in my head. Or further stories of the characters I’ve already written about. What happens to them? Could heaven be a place where they all come to life? Where I can share a tankard of mead with Jord Thorson at an inn in Asgaard? Where I can take a seat on the bridge of the Starboard Mist with Rik and the crew to fly through space?

Hopefully I’ve got a little more time yet to write. There are a lot of stories rumbling around in my head.

I’m almost scared to hear what my buddy Marc Stevens has to say on this topic, but the next hop on the Romance Writers Weekly blog hop is his at: https://marcstevenserotica.wordpress.com/

Today I’m posing the question: Let’s take a trip. Pretend your publisher has offered you a two week vacation anywhere in the world to inspire a new novel. Where do you go and why?

So where would be a good place to go to inspire an out-of-this-world science fiction romance?

How about a trip to the Hollywood Science Fiction Museum?

That sounds like a good place to start my trip.

Then maybe the next stop could be the Museum of Science fiction in Washington DC.

Last stop on my out-of-this-world vacation would have to be Seattle, WA and the Museum of Pop Culture.

Talk about a great get-away.

Do you know any other great ways to take off on an otherworldly adventure without a space ship? Let me know in the comments down below.
