Coming Soon: MONSTERS!

Well, actually the 2nd Classic Monsters anthology.

Are you ready to get your Frankenstein on?

We have 10 stories taking the trope of Frankenstein or his monster, and turning it on its ear! Guaranteed you’ll be delighted by this collection of stories — you’ll smile, you’ll shiver, you’ll cringe, and you might even shed a tear or two for one side of the story or the other. Coming October 15. Stay tuned, and you’ll be able to pre-order soon.

Consider:

Who really is the monster in the Frankenstein mythos? Creator or Creation? Who is the victim, and who is the victor?

Join us as we explore variations on the theme of Frankenstein — doctor and monster — in modern-day, historic and fantasy settings, through the eyes of creator, creation, and those they encounter along the way. We’ll visit some friends and settings we’ve met before, and new ones to make you smile, shiver, and shed a tear.

Guaranteed, you’ll never look at a mad scientist the same way again.

What’s it about:

FOR THE BIRDS

Before Genys Arroyan was captain, and M’kar was Chief of Talents and Treinna was head of linguistics and Jasper was chief engineer … in the golden years under Captain Rob Hollis’s leadership …

A dark shadow from the crewmates’ past shows up to make life and a new, precarious mission difficult for the junior officers of the Defender. A nomadic fleet grudgingly agrees to host a diplomatic team from the Alliance.  M’kar’s animal-focused Talent is needed to help the ambassador leave the flagship when the birds that inhabit and overwhelm and perhaps even run the ships of the fleet … won’t let him leave.

Pre-Release Special!

Etrusca’s Vow: AFV Defender Book 3

COMING September 14
In paper, e and audio.
The third book in the AFV Defender series.

Etrusca was a warrior woman in the distant past of Nisandros, who defied the clan heads and fought to turn her world from the worship of the Ancestors and back to worshipping and serving Enlo.

For that she nearly died. Many times.

Multiple blue lines mark the scars around her eyes and mouth where her enemies tried to blind her and silence her forever.

Women of Nisandros mark their eyes with blue lines to honor Etrusca and to vow service to Enlo.

M’kar earned her blue lines at age 8, when an adventure nearly killed her, and dropped her into a mystery she would spend the next twenty-some years trying to unravel. Follow her as her Talent awakens and she gains allies and enemies, until the day she returns to Nisandros to solve the mystery, very much against her will.

What do you get if you pre-order?
Books will be sent as soon as they are ready, instead of making you wait until release day.
Print will come straight from the printer.
Order print — you get your choice of ebook or audiobook, FREE.
$1 discount.

This offer is good until September 10.

New Release! LISTEN CAREFULLY, Young Defenders Book 2

Now available — in print, ebook and audio.

Tress Lore, daughter of the chief engineer and chief linguist, was born on the Defender. Only nine years old, her life is about to change.

While exploring the space station where their ship is undergoing upgrades, she overhears people saying things that frighten her. Threats against her friends, and even the ship. But when she tells the adults, nobody else has heard what she heard. Tress is confused. What is wrong with everybody?

When she hears Lt. M’kar wishing to play a nasty trick on some people who are giving her trouble, Tress breaks some rules to try to help. When she is caught, the captain and her parents begin to understand what is happening to her. She isn’t hearing people’s voices, but their thoughts.

As she starts training to use her new Talent properly, Tress starts to understand what her parents have been teaching her: Enlo gives gifts for a reason. And the reason for her Talent appearing far too soon may already have arrived.
