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 Authorsβ„’. 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.

So if you haven’t read Beginners’ Luck yet, perhaps these reviews will nudge you to give it a go:

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. ”
Mike Resnick
