Update – Destiny: Cloud Fist

On Tuesday, I released the last few episodes of Destiny: Cloud Fist.

The story is complete, and all episodes are now up for reading on Kindle Vella.

You can read the first three episodes for free, and the rest for just a few pennies each. If you haven’t tried kindle Vella yet, check it out. (There’s a thumbs up button at the bottom of each episode and clicking on that really helps out the author.)

Check out Destiny Cloud Fist here: https://www.amazon.com/kindle-vella/story/B095XKSZ6Q

And if you’re not into reading on Kindle Vella, stay tuned, the regular Kindle ebook and paperback versions will be coming out soon(ish)

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,

Witches and Werewolves and Demons, Oh My!

Tis the season, and a perfect time to check out my Demons Gate Chronicles. I have recently repackaged the series, returning to its original titles and updating the covers, so if you already have Awakening, Alliance, and Annihilation, you have the series. The new (older) titles are There’s No Such Thing as Werewolves, The Forsaken Templar, and Seeds of Immortality. And they have some beautiful new covers.

Link to the series: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074C9F59Q

If you haven’t picked up this set yet, now’s a great time to pick one up. The kindle version of There’s No Such Thing as Werewolves is just 99¢ now through Sunday.

Get it here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007KAE45A

And, as always, the series is free to read on Kindle Unlimited.

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.

Demon’s Gate Update.

I’m the first to admit when I make a mistake…well, maybe not the first...but eventually I concede…most of the time.

Anyway, I thought the reboot of my Demons Gate series would be on track, but I realize now that it probably wasn’t. the covers were too ‘artsy’ and the names too obscure…and sales fell flat.

So, we’re going back to the original titles for the books and I’ve commissioned some new covers.

So, Awakening, Alliance, and Annihilation are now all out-of-print. The new books are the same stories, just repackaged.

And if you haven’t read these stories yet, you can find them here:

There’s No Such Thing as Werewolves – https://books2read.com/u/mYGWQx

The Forsaken Templar – https://books2read.com/u/b6vgWM

Seeds of Immortality – https://books2read.com/u/mvo0wz

Thanks,

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

Whether you’re joining me from Leslie Hachtel’s blog  or starting your blog hop here, welcome.

Leslie is also giving us today’s topic: Let’s talk about your New Years’ Resolutions.

I’m not the kind that makes really hard New Years resolutions. I’ve tried and usually failed, instead I try to set some goals to strive toward. My goals for this year include:

  1. Re-branding. Look for a new look to my website, social media, and Amazon pages.
  2. Advertise and grow my readership. I’m going to put a little more effort into getting the word out: “Hey, I write stuff.”
  3. Lose weight. (On the list every year. usually a fail, because I like to eat and hate to exercise.)
  4. Write, write, write, or, yeah, and write.

Anyway, goals are set, full steam ahead.

Sweet Sacrifice by L. D. Rose

The next installment of the amazing Soul Mate Tree series is out:

Sweet Sacrifice

by

L.D. Rose

THE LEGEND OF THE SOUL MATE TREE:

I am old, I am ancient, my purpose is clear
To give those who are needy a treasure so dear.
They who come to my roots, touch my bark, stroke my leaves
Find the soul of their lives if they but believe.
When I call and you listen, your prize will be great
If your heart remains open and you don’t hesitate.
Do you yearn? Be you lonely? Is your time yet at hand?
Reach for me and I’ll give to you. I’m yours to command.
For your trust, for your faith, keep my secrets untold
And I’ll gift you forever, to have and to hold.

An ancient legend spanning eras, continents, and worlds. To some, it’s nothing more than a dream. To others, a pretty fairy tale handed down through the generations.

For those in critical need of their own happy ending, a gift.

Former Navy SEAL Sebastian “Bash” Lockard died in Afghanistan after leaping on a grenade to save his comrades. Little did he know his act of heroism would grant him a ticket into Heaven’s elite army as one of the few and powerful Archangels. Struggling with his new existence, Bash still retains his human memories, leaving behind a wife he loves with all of his heart. Although he’s forbidden to see her, he can’t resist her lure, or the mortal desires he harbors for her.

As a young widow and nurse, Irene Lockard still mourns her husband two years after his untimely death. His absence is everywhere, and when her best friend weds, she hits an emotional rock bottom. As if summoned from the skies above, Sebastian appears before her, and they share an unforgettable night. But when he once again vanishes, she wonders if she’s truly gone mad with grief.

The only way Sebastian can remain with Irene is if he makes the ultimate sacrifice. But will she overcome her fear of losing him again to another war?

The Soul Mate Tree: Never Give Up On Love

Today is release day for the next installment in the incredible Soul Mate Tree saga:

Never Give up on Love A_001.jpg

Never Give Up on Love.

By Maggie Mundy

 

I am old, I am ancient, my purpose is clear

To give those who are needy a treasure so dear.

They who come to my roots, touch my bark, stroke my leaves

Find the soul of their lives if they but believe.

When I call and you listen, your prize will be great

If your heart remains open and you don’t hesitate.

Do you yearn? Be you lonely? Is your time yet at hand?

Reach for me and I’ll give to you. I’m yours to command.

For your trust, for your faith, keep my secrets untold

And I’ll gift you forever, to have and to hold.

 

Blurb:

Sometimes you want to die, but it’s not meant to be. Vincent became a vampire in 1847. He fights to keep humans safe from rogue vampires, but can never find love. One thing makes him go on and not find a way to die. The Soul Mate Tree saved his life with its shade and showed him a woman in the future who would need his help and show him love. He could be more than the bloodsucker he had become.

In 2015, Adele is a vampire hunter by night and a photographer by day. She has never allowed love into her life as it would only complicate things. Then she meets Vincent, and the attraction is instant.

Vincent must try and convince Adele to love him while they both fight off rogue vampires?

How will she cope when she realizes the man she has fallen in love with, is what she has been trained to kill.

Excerpt:

She clipped another stake onto her belt just in case. As she got closer, Adele saw a man at the base of the tree. She couldn’t make out his face with the way he angled his body away from her.

He groaned as if in pain as the lights around the tree intensified. It must be a power surge or something she supposed. Maybe the poor guy was being electrocuted. She tried to remember her first aid.

“Are you hurt?” She called out. The man didn’t react and then the branches came down and covered him. That was weird. It was like the tree was alive or something. She didn’t want to leave someone hurt and in need of help and moved the branches aside. The guy was gone. She really was losing the plot. Maybe she had imagined him. As she moved away from the tree, she heard a whisper.

“Trust me, Adele. He will find you when you need him.”
