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

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.

There’s never been a better time to join Xi Force.

This weekend you can get the Kindle version of Z-Bot for free. So if you haven’t joined the Xi Force team, here’s your chance.

Z-Bot is the first book of my award-winning Xi Force series, and a great introduction to a fantastic world of sexy superheroes and sinister villains.

Chris Johnson never really started living until he died. Orphaned, fostered, and drifting through life, the twenty-seven-year-old programmer had no family, little money, and few friends. But he also had no enemies. So, who the hell killed him? After an experimental process brings him back from the dead as a zombiebot, he gets the chance to find out.

Heather Logan’s latest process uses nanobots to reanimate a corpse. Half robot, half something raised from the dead, Chris is her first successful resuscitation. Questions abound. What is it? Is it truly alive, a machine, or some kind of zombie-hybrid?

But someone wants to steal Heather’s secret process and put her out of the picture permanently. Chris, with his new superpowers, is the only thing standing between Heather and an assassin’s bullet. Is he enough of a hero to save her?

Xi Force: Book 4

 

For most of her life Maggie O’Donnell dreamed of becoming an astronaut. Instead, she ended up flying the Xi Force super jet. Not a bad trade-off. And when she inherits the powers of the Irish goddess Morrigan, she steps into an even bigger role with the super team. But an ancient enemy rises with the inheritance of her new superpowers, one who’s out to destroy her and anyone close to her.

Paul Tompkins is leader of Pike’s rangers, the Xi Force support team. Required to keep Maggie in the friend zone because of his job, her new position in Xi Force suddenly changes everything. But as their friendship sparks into burning passion, an alien invasion force and Maggie’s new nemesis combine to threaten Earth.

Rising to meet this new challenge will take everything Maggie, Paul, and Xi Force have. Can love bloom amidst an invasion from outer space?

PHAZE

Xi Force #2

When Kayla Armstrong is attacked in her lab, she falls into a chemical stew. Now she’s walking through walls and falling through floors.

As the leader of Xi Force, Joel Weisberg is always looking for new superheroes for his team. What he wasn’t looking for was sexy Kayla Armstrong falling through the ceiling of his apartment right into his bed. 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?
