Author Nicole Ciacchella’s Deals and Steals

I like a bargain (it must be the Scot in me), so I was happy to find this author’s site and her efforts to gather and share books for sale.

I was also fortunate enough for her to include my book in this month’s Deals and Steals! Thank you, Nicole Ciacchella!

Check out these books – there’s fantasy, urban fantasy, steampunk, oh yeah, and space opera!

A new review of Deuces Wild: Stacking the Deck! Yes, I get excited easily!

Just found a new review of the second book in the Deuces Wild series: Stacking the Deck.

Everyone looks on Amazon or Goodreads, but I found this one on GooglePlay:

I’d love to see a Deuces Wild Trilogy in theaters. Of course once the third book is out that is. This was a real page turner like the first book. I read both together in exactly one week. I can’t wait for an Illustrated Guide to L S. Kings universe.

Thank you so much for reading Stacking the Deck, Eric, and for posting a review. I doubt any films will be made of my books though. LOL

If you haven’t read it yet, it has lots of explosive action, or as Mike Resnick said:

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

The genres in which I write: space opera and erm, science….fantasy?

In a conversation with another author recently, we talked about the genres in which we write. Although I write science fiction, I have two series which are vastly different. Deuces Wild is space opera, and briefly can be described as a cross between the movie (or better yet the book) Shane and the TV show Firefly. (That last is not my assessment either, but one my original editor used as comparison for the stories).

Book three is being written, and will be released in 2019, hopefully in the spring, but definitely by summer. And book one, Deuces Wild: Beginners’ Luck is currently on sale for a mere $0.99!

The other series has the feel of a fantasy world, with an agrarian culture, provincial lords, castles, capes, and swords. However, there is no magic, it’s just a forgotten alien technology that is beginning to be rediscovered. In trying to come up with a very short description for passersby at Cons, I finally came up with: “Pern without the dragons.” Which, if you like dragons, is very disappointing, but makes the point: Pern is not fantasy. The people came to the planet via spaceships, and through catastrophe, eventually lost all the technology they had. Eventually they began to rediscover it. (If you have thoughts on a better description for this sub-genre, I’d love to have the input, because trying to find where these books fit has been aggravating!)

So, if you like a fantasy-feel science fiction, you just may like the Sword’s Edge Chronicles. I have three books released in that series, with book four coming out within two months.

If you want to know a bit about their past, see some of the advanced tech they had at one time, and find out a little of the history, you could try the prequel: Unlikely Prophet, which is bit more “proper” science fiction with maglevs and people living in domes.

No Infomercials or Hard-sells – But Wait! There’s More!

My grandson was peering over my shoulder and saw that my one book, Deuces Wild: Beginners’ Luck, was on sale for only $0.99.

Smart aleck that he is, he quipped, “For only three payments of 33 cents each!”

Ah, no, though – sorry, it must be a full payment of ninety-nine cents; no payment plans are available. There’s also no special knife sets or fantastic gadgets that slice, dice, and even juliennes fries!

However I do have a “But wait, there’s more!” It’s not the only book in the series, so if you like it, you have a second book to read, and there’s even a third book being written, which will be out sometime in 2019!

And don’t forget, the book is available in Kindle, Nook, Kobo, and several other formats!

My books are listed at Walmart’s website!

It’s a very cool thing to find one’s books listed in a new outlet – so seeing my books listed on Walmart’s website was fantastic!

It doesn’t look like they have an author page so one can list all of one’s books and have folks search by author, but yep, they’re there. They use the Kobo format, so if you prefer your ebooks in Kobo, they’ve got ’em!

If you’re new to my books, You might give Sword’s Edge a try, the first book in its series, or the first novel in my other series: Deuces Wild: Beginners’ Luck, which is on sale this month for only $0.99!

Of course, if you prefer other ebook formats, or would rather have a print book, you can choose your favorite from the offerings on my site:
