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,

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.

(The first three books in this series were previously published under the series name: Hearts in Orbit. The books have been edited and expanded to place them firmly in the new Destiny Universe.

#Free for the Weekend

I’m happy to announce today that I’ve joined an amazing group of fantasy, sci-fi, and paranormal authors that will be offering select books for free this weekend. Three days only, so get your copies now, including my book, There’s No Such Thing As Werewolves:

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?

There’s No Such Thing as Werewolves is book 1 of the Demon Gate Chronicles, a romantic urban fantasy series with demons, witches, ancient evil, and definitely NO werewolves…maybe.

Daughter of Darkness Is Live!

Yes, the Kindle and paperback versions of Daughter of Darkness are live and available as well as the Audio version in select stores (coming soon too all the rest, including Audible.) The new, updated edition expands the Heavenly Wars universe and sets the stage for book 3, Legacy of Lightning (coming next year from lake Scrawls Publishing.)

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.

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.

I also would like to share a new release from a good friend. It’s a wonderful children’s book, just in time for holiday gift giving:

~ A new whimsical fantasy to give to that special child this holiday! ~

Available in ebook AND PRINT!

Frederick Fly-Catcher, Children’s Fantasy

“A fun adventure that was a hit with my nine-year-old!”

What happens when Frederick, a champion fly-catcher, is confronted with a human? After all, humans are dangerous! And worse, this human is carrying a thing of troublesome, powerful magic. What if Frederick can’t get it to stop?

This fast-paced chapter book will entice young readers to keep turning pages to find out what happens next. Connecting with Frederick’s frog’s-eye-view reminds children to treat all creatures with respect and to be open to friendships with new or different people.

Parents can use the story events as jumping-off points to talk with children about problem-solving and teamwork strategies as well as simply being kind.

Also a great book to read to children at bedtime!

The best thing I could do was to relax and enjoy the ride, so that’s exactly what I did.”

Xi Force book 3: Wylde

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.
