Here There Were Dragons 

Dracs: the gift that keeps giving. And making life very interesting for the crew of the AFV Defender.

A spatial anomaly near the drac homeworld, a forbidden island, and signs of a civilization that self-destructed are just the tip of the iceberg. When spoiled brat Ambassador Vitiarre’s plot to get his hands on dracs is foiled, he sets out to make trouble for the Defender, and especially Chief of Talents M’kar. His long-standing feud with her father, Ashrock, just makes everything worse.

Then a new Chute opens up near the drac homeworld, leading to a planet with dragons in its legends. Despite no dragons present on the planet now, Vitiarre breaks regulations to invade and claim his own dragon. His schemes lead to the Defender being sent to mend the trouble he made with the matriarchal society of Castitarus.

The misfit luck of the Defender is hard at work. Male crew are kidnapped. The dracs develop allergies. Female officers are offered diplomatic gifts of men. And the crew race to find a cure for a disease that turns grown men into children — starting with Security Chief Decker, and Ashrock.

A typical mission for the crew of the AFV Defender.

Coming New Print Releases

November 1 is the PRINT release of LIVING PROOF (that no good deed goes unpunished). Lanie and her brothers and friends head into the Christmas season with a few puzzles to solve: what happened to their parents, who apparently have vanished near the Bermuda Triangle? Who is out to get Lanie? Why are they out to get her? And most important: when is Lanie going to find time to do her Christmas shopping amid all this chaos?

January 1 the chaos and fun continue with NIGHT OF THE LIVING PROOF. Neighborlee prepares for the annual New Year’s Eve party at Eden, the community center … but something is amiss. Power fluctuations, time slides, disappearances and spells of amnesia are just the tip of the iceberg.

Head’s up!! I’m in the process of starting to create AUDIOBOOKS of the Neighborlee stories. The plan is to start with LIVING PROOF, to have it ready for Christmas … hopefully …. Stay tuned for more information here!

New Print Release!

Tuesday, September 1, is the PRINT release day for VIRTUALLY LONDON, book 3 in the Neighborlee, Ohio fantasy series.

It’s already been available in Kindle and Kindle Unlimited for a month or two.

To celebrate the release, I’ve experimented a little bit and created an INTERACTIVE STORY, a self-guided tour of Divine’s Emporium, for you to play and have fun. And maybe make some dangerous choices …. The ebook has been uploaded to Kindle and is being released through the standard ebook outlets.

If you would like YOUR copy of DIVINE’S EMPORIUM, the self-guided tour/interactive story, FREE, it’s easy to get. Sign up for my newsletter and then email and let me know you did that. I will send the ebook out to you via Bookfunnel.

Just go to my website: http://www.Mlevigne.com, or my blog, http://www.MichelleLevigne.blogspot.com, or my Facebook page, Michelle Levigne, Author and Editor — and fill out the form there. Easy-peasy!

Experimentation Time

I’m working on a project, and working against time. Some folks say that deadlines spur creativity. I’m of the opinion that when you don’t know what the hey-ya you’re doing, then deadlines spur a mess.

But here we go … The GOAL is to have a Choose-Your-Adventure book ready for a party favor/freebie-type-thingy to celebrate the print release of the 3rd Neighborlee book, VIRTUALLY LONDON.

Of course, where else would a book like that take place, where you make your choices and wander through a challenge, than Divine’s Emporium? The center of the weird-and-wonderful in Neighborlee.

Funny, but as I’m plotting all the different weirdness that explorers can run into, Divine’s is kind of turning out to be a dangerous place. Kind of scary, if you want to know the truth. Mostly because the “adventure” comes from disobeying Angela’s instructions, and poking your nose where it doesn’t belong … so the trouble is kind of justified. Ya think?

Right now, there will be two story paths to choose from: You are someone who comes to Divine’s to explore … and someone who (foolishly) comes into Divine’s to steal.

I’m still working out the logistics of how to handle it in ebook format, but I’m feeling good about the whole tangled mess the more time I spend wrapping my brains around it. Or maybe the tangled mess IS my brain …

Stay tuned for more details.

OH, YEAH — and keep watch for the print release of VIRTUALLY LONDON, Neighborlee, Ohio, Book 3:

Virtually London

Athena Longfellow and Doni Halliday are granddaughters of one of Neighborlee’s guardians, Ford Longfellow. When danger threatens Neighborlee, the girls awaken to their duties and their gifts, and slowly grow into their heritage.

Athena, the computer whiz, finds and experiments with an unusual video camera at Divine’s Emporium. She records Doni, and then records a room at the shop — and inadvertently opens a door to another dimension. Properly frightened, she shuts down the program behind firewalls. Enemy invasion thwarted. For now.

She doesn’t realize she also created a virtual copy of Doni, until an advanced computer class in college, when the artificial intelligence that calls herself London Holiday “moves into” her team’s class project.

Athena suddenly has a good idea how Dr. Frankenstein felt. The question is: If she has to pull the plug on London Holiday … how?

Goodies for YOU!
