Turning to the Dark Side – Again

Posted in Deuces Wild, My Writing, Writing with tags , , , on July 31, 2017 by Loriendil

In order to know what’s going to happen in DW3, I have to know what the bad guys are up to. So here comes the process of getting into the bad guys’ heads. I always despise this part of the process; I feel icky afterwards, like I need a shower.

Does anyone else have a problem with getting inside the minds of their bad guys and having to think like they do?

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.)

WIPs – Progress, Slowly but Surely

Posted in Deuces Wild, Sword's Edge Chronicles, Writing with tags , , , on May 24, 2017 by Loriendil

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.

To peek at progress, you may visit my WIP page.

Deuces Wild on Friday the 13th

Posted in Deuces Wild, My Writing, Writing with tags , , , on January 13, 2017 by Loriendil

Today has always been my special day, so maybe I’ll get someone to notice and want to buy my books. Specifically, my Deuces Wild series, because the titles have to do with cards/gambling and it’s Friday the 13th. Does that make sense to anyone but me? Probably not, but do I care? My mind does its own thing.

So, about Deuces Wild – y’know, I’ve actually got endorsements from Real Authors™. People like Keanan Brand, Lou Antonelli, and Mike Resnick.

So if you like space opera, why not give my books a go? They’re available in paperback and e-book. And they’re a fun read. If you don’t believe me, check out the endorsements.
