About new books, news, specials and the next Freedom book

News

Spring is going strong here in Ohio, with at least one large thunderstorm running through each week.  This then has everyone on edge about twisters… But weird weather is a thing here in Ohio – very much like living in Victoria, Australia.  You can go through all four seasons in one day. 🙂

What am I working on now? Well, book 6 and 7 of the Way to Freedom series now have covers and are due to be released soon.  I’ll give you a sneak peak at the cover for The Searchers, which is Book 6.

While that is underway, I’ve started re-writing my urban fantasy novel Winter’s Magic.  This will be re-released at about the same time as The Searchers and will be the first in an urban fantasy series called The Order set in Australia.  I will also be working on a partner series based in the same ‘universe’ but set here in Ohio called Ravensdale.

Oh, and Citizen Erased will be out soon as well, I’ll show off the cover for that next time 🙂

Here is the long awaited cover for The Searchers – Book 6 of The Way to Freedom Series.

 

Current deals and Things to Look Out For!

Take a look at:

  • Daughters of Destiny is a 10 author Scifi/Fantasy boxed set that I’m a part of, and is available now on all retailers.  It features the first book in my Verge Series – The Enclave.  It is only going to be out for a limited time, so get a good bargain with all these authors while you can.  Tell your friends 🙂
  • Lady Blackwing is a new Superhero novella from Devorah Fox which is now avalaible for preorder for 0.99c
  • The Way to Freedom Season One Episodes are now Available on Kindle Unlimited – if you are a KU subscriber and have read The Kalarthri, take a look, you won’t regret it.

Enclave Cover Reveal

I am still working on Citizen Erased which is Book 2 of The Verge and Books 6,7 and 8 of The Way to Freedom Series.  I am also working on two top secret projects which I can hopefully start talking about in a few months time.

There is one thing that I wish to show you all.  The new cover for The Enclave!

And next time I’ll reveal the cover for Citizen Erased, then the covers for the next three Way to Freedom books

I know what you’re all thinking…that I really should be writing.  I’ll get back to it then 🙂

So Commander Katherine Kirk wasn’t originally the lead of H.M. Clarke’s novel, but the character had such a strong presence and influence over the story, the author could no longer deny who the true star was.

Book Review – The Red King by Nick Cole

The Red KingNB: I received The Red King as an Advance Review Copy

The Cast

  • Holiday, an out of work actor who has a liking for alcohol and tobacco.
  • Frank, a Vietnam Vet and Holiday’s Neighbor
  • Ash, a woman with more on her mind than guns and survival
  • The (now) undead population of Los Angeles
  • Other shadowy figures involved with global conspiracies

 

The Vague Description

First off, I would just like to say that I am not a fan of anything ‘Zombie’ related.  But Nick Cole’s writing style and voice makes this book a must read for me.

I want to read the next book in the series Now to see what happens to Holiday and the rest of the group of survivors.

This book gives me the ‘Dusk ‘til Dawn’ feeling – where you think the story is leading you in one direction, before switching gears and taking a sudden turn through ‘What the?’ junction and finishing in ‘Wowville’

Takeaway

Being a binge drinking loner on a bender can have some advantages when the Zombie Apocalypse hits.

End Thought

I wish I could write like Nick Cole.  I love his writing style and descriptions.  And anyone who puts gum trees (eucalyptus trees) in their landscapes is great with me 🙂

There’s something that lies within my memory. Hidden in the dark. Something that can kill me and those that I love. But I was in an accident, covered in mystery and deception. And my memory…was lost. There are those who want me to remember. I don’t trust them. And those I do trust…are fighting for me to forget.

Elsabetha Ellery wants to get her memory back, even if it kills her.

After waking up in a hospital with no memory, Elsabetha quickly learns those who claim to be her friend are anything but. And those who are her true friends keep themselves unseen.

Stuck with piecing together her broken memories alone, Elsa struggles with having faith in those she trusts and heeding the warnings of the dangers in recovering her memory. Ignoring them, she faces heavy consequences. Ones she doesn’t see until it’s too late, and a life is lost.

winters-magic-3d-a1

Book Blurb

Kaitlyn Winter is biting at the bit to become an active agent for the Restricted Practitioners Unit.  And on her first day in the job she is thrown into a virtual s**t storm (to put it nicely).

First, she gets targeted for Assassination by The Sharda’s top assassin

Second, her Werewolf best friend decides that her being ‘Straight’ means she can’t protect herself and places her in protective custody

Third, the love of her life still won’t notice her existence and the Tempus Mage who’s set to keep an eye on her is infuriatingly attractive….

Winter’s Magic is now available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle here

hmmm – I might even do a  video showing off how good my paperbacks actually are ‘in the flesh’ – I always put little added tweaks in them, that you can’t really put in an ebook …

FANTASY

Myrren’s Gift by Fiona McIntosh

 

Destined by blood to command the Morgravian army, Wyl Thirsk assumes his awesome responsibility while barely a teenager when his father meets an early death — a duty that calls him to the royal palace of Stoneheart and into the company of the crown prince Celimus. Already a spiteful and cruel despot who delights in the suffering of others, Celimus forces his virtuous new general to bear witness to his depraved “entertainments.” But a kindness to a condemned witch in her final agonizing hours earns young Thirsk a miraculous bequest, at the same time inflaming the wrath of his liege lord.

With dread war looming in the north, Wyl must obey the treacherous dictates of Celimus and embark on a suicidal journey to the court of an ancient enemy — armed with a strange and awesome secret that could prove both boon and curse. For unless he accepts Myrren’s gift, it will surely destroy him . . . and the land he must defend as well.


Thriller/Action/Sci Fi

Weapons of Choice by John Birmingham (I do like my original Australian Release cover much better)

On the eve of America’s greatest victory in the Pacific,
a catastrophic event disrupts the course of World War II, forever changing the rules of combat. . . . 

The impossible has spawned the unthinkable. A military experiment in the year 2021 has thrust an American-led multinational armada back to 1942, right into the middle of the U.S. naval task force speeding toward Midway Atoll—and what was to be the most spectacular U.S. triumph of the entire war.

Thousands died in the chaos, but the ripples had only begun. For these veterans of Pearl Harbor—led by Admirals Nimitz, Halsey, and Spruance—have never seen a helicopter, or a satellite link, or a nuclear weapon. And they’ve never encountered an African American colonel or a British naval commander who was a woman and half-Pakistani. While they embrace the armada’s awesome firepower, they may find the twenty-first century sailors themselves far from acceptable.

Initial jubilation at news the Allies would win the war is quickly doused by the chilling realization that the time travelers themselves—by their very presence—have rendered history null and void. Celebration turns to dread when the possibility arises that other elements of the twenty-first century task force may have also made the trip—and might now be aiding Yamamoto and the Japanese.

What happens next is anybody’s guess—and everybody’s nightmare. . . .

Biography

Elizabeth’s Spy Master by Robert Hutchinson (I love anything written by Robert Hutchinson)

Francis Walsingham was the first ‘spymaster’ in the modern sense. His methods anticipated those of MI5 and MI6 and even those of the KGB. He maintained a network of spies across Europe, including double-agents at the highest level in Rome and Spain – the sworn enemies of Queen Elizabeth and her Protestant regime. His entrapment of Mary Queen of Scots is a classic intelligence operation that resulted in her execution. As Robert Hutchinson reveals, his cypher expert’s ability to intercept other peoples’ secret messages and his brilliant forged letters made him a fearsome champion of the young Elizabeth. Yet even this machiavellian schemer eventually fell foul of Elizabeth as her confidence grew (and judgement faded). The rise and fall of Sir Francis Walsingham is a Tudor epic, vividly narrated by a historian with unique access to the surviving documentary evidence.

Enjoy!
