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.

I am delighted. Thrilled. Overjoyed. Still BUZZED over the incredible news.

TWO Ye Olde Dragon publications WON in the Realm Awards last week.

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.

Double Trouble, Anyone?

TWO new releases on Monday, May 1. Are you ready?

First, we have the second Fairytale Anthology: TALES FROM THE TOWER. 16 stories launching off the story or trop of Rapunzel. We have all kinds of towers, all kinds of prisoners, all kinds of hairdos, villains, heroes, rescues, magic.

A burst of inspiration drives a baker to build a tower—without a door. But it proves to be the perfect dwelling for a certain old woman. The question is –Why?

A tower can be a safe place, especially during a zombie apocalypse. But what do you do when your safe place becomes a prison?

When communications between two castles have been cut off, a maiden must ride to rescue her friend from an evil … realtor?

We all know the tale of Rapunzel and her hair growth problem, but what if her hair grew – everywhere? When the moon was full and bright? Yes, we have a werewolf in our midst!

Chemical warfare is a sad fact of our modern life, but what if scientists learned to modify people to give them supernatural abilities? Like telekinesis? Or maybe tentacle hair?

On a spaceship far away, a young woman lives alone in a different kind of tower. One day, her songs reach a fellow travele

These are but a few of the stories you are about to dive into! To the realms of the fairies, to desert lands far away, to war-torn places where weary characters just try to survive, to forests, to windswept seascapes, to London and New York City, and into the far reaches of the galaxy. Explore the realms with us!

Then we bring you the 13th and FINAL book (maybe …) in the Neighborlee Ohio fantasy series.

The guardians face their greatest dilemma, when a New Age cult threatens to drive the Grandstones out of Neighborlee — and take their place. Better the devil they know than the one they don’t?

Saving Neighborlee Children’s Home from foreclosure, and stopping an invasion from otherworldly forces could all depend on Pastor Rocky “getting the band back together.” Problem: everyone else died in a fiery crash.

Or did they?

Multiple enemy forces unite to attack the town of Neighborlee, attempting to turn Pastor Rocky into their newest weapon.

Big mistake.
