Summertime Reading Suggestions

Posted in Deuces Wild, My Writing, Sword's Edge Chronicles, Writing with tags , , , , , on July 3, 2017 by Loriendil

If you want something to read this summer, perhaps lazing by a pool or on the beach, or even in your backyard, (or like me, perhaps just reclining on your sofa) might I suggest some raygun-zapping space adventure with my Deuces Wild series? Two books are published so far, and there’s some serious fun in those pages:

 

“It’s fast-paced, fun, and well-written. … Make sure you don’t have anything on your schedule the day you start reading it – you probably won’t put it down until you finish.” – Lou Antonelli

“Recommended reading to all lovers of space opera, science fiction, and unlikely buddies saving the universe.” – Keanan Brand

“In DEUCES WILD, L. S. King gives us a fast-moving adventure, told with wit and grace, and more than a dose of humor.” – Mike Resnick

 

 

 

Also, it’s a great time to be introduced to Tam, Alcandhor, and their kin in Sword’s Edge. Book two of the series, Children of the Enaisi, will be out this fall. In case you can’t tell by the title, there’s swordplay to be had in the book, and some cape-swishing too, if you like that sort of thing – which I do. I blame Zorro and Johnston McCulley.

 

 

 

 

(And just in case you enjoy holding a real book, but like to have e-books for when you’re on the go, my books all have the Amazon Matchbook price: buy the print book and you can purchase the Kindle version for a lower price: only $0.99 for each Deuces Wild, and $1.99 for Sword’s Edge.)

Lori’s Writing Nook

Posted in class, Writing on June 12, 2017 by Loriendil

For several years I did an online fiction writing support group/class in There.com and afterwards in Twinity. I enjoyed the meetings because we had avatars and could either text chat or voice chat.

But due to lots of Real Lifeβ„’ interruptions, that was put on hold.

I am now starting the group again – but with a difference. No avatars, alas, but text and voice chat is available as I will be using Discord. It is a free download or you can use it in a browser. The nice thing is, even if we’re not officially meeting, you can leave a text message that the rest of us can view at any time.

If you are interested, please contact me through my website or on Facebook, and I will give you the Discord information for my server.

See you there!

My Own Wonder Woman – Tam of Sword’s Edge

Posted in My Writing, Sword's Edge Chronicles, Writing with tags , on June 6, 2017 by Loriendil

I’m not one to push my books very often, but I cannot resist. Tam, the heroine of Sword’s Edge is a wonder woman; she’s a tough fighter and a stubborn little cuss to boot!

If you like that sort of story, considering reading more about Tam. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

 

The novel is available in a variety of e-book formats and in print.

I am actively working on three books at the moment. The third book in each of my two series, Deuces Wild and Sword’s Edge Chronicles, and also Unlikely Prophet, the prequel to Sword’s Edge, which takes place approximately one thousand years prior.
