Yes, yes! Two days and counting!

The e-book will be out in two days – you can pre-order now through Amazon or Smashwords.

The print book is only days behind it – and I’m very proud that several authors have endorsed the book.

You can read the endorsements here (and pre-order the e-book, if you want):

Oh okay – I’m really proud, so let me include the endorsements below:

“It’s fast-paced, fun, and well-written. These are characters you can care about with the problems and complications all humans face in our everyday struggles. Society may change in the future but human nature doesn’t.
This is a space setting that feels lived in. It’s a plausible future setting, a frontier-like environment where people try to make a living, solve problems, and just get by – a very humanistic literature.
The narrative flows and takes you quickly along. The characters are well-rounded, believable and credible. The dialogue is snappy and authentic.
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


Deuces Wild: Stacking the Deck is a fun follow-up to Deuces Wild: Beginner’s Luck. We learn more about the reticent Tristan, some of it embarrassing to him but amusing to readers, as we follow him and Slap and Company as they once more encounter the Confeds and sundry enemies, and appeal to allies to bring about an unexpected, satisfying twist in the tale. 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. ”

Which Character Is Your Crush?

There’s been some talk lately among my friends on FB about falling in love with fictional characters. I’m guilty of that – there have been many over the years that have stolen my heart.

And several people have indicated they have a crush on one of my characters.

The most commonly named one is Marcalan, although a few have said they prefer Haladhon. I also had one who said when she was young, she probably would have been smitten with Tristan, but now, being older and wiser, she has her eye on my cowboy, Slap.

If you’re one of my readers, which one is yours?

(If you’re not one of my readers, why not?)


It is a truth universally acknowledged…

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a manuscript submitted for publication will only then be found to have never-before-seen errors.


On a lighter note, only eight days until Deuces Wild: Stacking the Deck will be available in e-book. It can be pre-ordered now. (The print version should be available not long after. I’ll share that info as soon as I have it.)
