I don’t try to be bombastic, but do have a decent vocabulary and do use it. If you haven’t yet read any of my books and are curious about the vocabulary therein, check out either of my series:

If you’ve seen My Fair Lady (and if not, why not?), do you remember what Henry Higgins said of Zoltan Karparthy oozing charm and oiling his way around the floor? I would say good ol’ Zoltan definitely fit the definition of oleaginous!

What characters do you know that might also fit that description? (I won’t ask for real life examples, that might get us in hot water! LOL)

Unlikely Prophet

The History of the Crossing which happens 1000 years before Sword’s Edge.

β€œChief.” Galadhan, already in his armor, had one hand to his helmet. The lines on his face seemed more hardened than usual. β€œCentral reports this isn’t a mere earthquake. A volcano has just appeared out of nowhere in the Northwest. It has destroyed Agri-dome One and Two, and the entirety of West Ridge is out of communication. The last message was that the ridge was collapsing. Earthquakes have hit the all over the plain and East Valley. It seems almost every dome has been breached. The rail-tube system is down. All of it.”

The blood drained from Avadhron’s face. This is it. Our time of grace has ended.

Unlikely Prophet

Still only $0.99!Β

SF novel on sale: Unlikely Prophet only .99!

Something good had to happen this year, so I decided it would be a new cover for my science fiction novel Unlikely Prophet.

And to celebrate the new cover, I’m offering it for sale for $0.99.

Unlikely Prophet

The planet is dying.
Security Chief Avadhron has lost hope.

Forced to retreat to domes to escape the toxic atmosphere, and with earthquakes and volcanic eruptions threatening their lives, his people live in fear and anger. Avadhron struggles to keep order despite his own despair.

A long-dormant portal activatesβ€”
An alien arrives.

Avadhron doesn’t trust this alien or his altruistic offers of help, but the imminent destruction of his planet forces him to back the plan to move his people through the portal to a new world, rife with beauty and danger.
But can they relocate an entire population before its too late?

You’ll love this breathtaking science fiction adventure!

Get it now!
