Unlikely Prophet, a History of the Crossing – now available!

Yes, it’s true! The book you’ve been waiting for – the History of the Crossing of the Teldheri to their new world. This book takes place over one thousand years before Tam was born.

In Unlikely Prophet, one man becomes the unintentional savior of his dying world.

Their planet is dying. His people have lost hope. Security Chief Avadhron struggles to keep order despite his own despair. When a long-forgotten portal opens, an alien arrives claiming he wishes to help. The planet extended as a safe haven offers life to Avadhron and his people, but can they cross to their new home before their own kills them all? What dangers await them on this unfamiliar world? And what lies behind the alien’s altruism?

This prequel of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles is available in print and ebook!

Oh, by the way – if you like to have both the print and e-book versions…

I was reminded of a conversation recently where a reader did not know about Amazon’s Kindle MatchBook.

Just a note that all my books are enrolled in the Kindle MatchBook. What this means is if you have already bought the print version of any of my books through Amazon, or do buy them, you can also get the e-book at a reduced price.

In the Deuces Wild series, the Matchbook price for the e-book is $0.99, and for the Sword’s Edge Chronicles it’s $1.99.

Thought you ought to know (but without fainting like Professor Quirrell).

Children of the Enaisi stands alone, but don’t neglect the rest of the series!

In case you missed it, the second book of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles is available in e-book!

Two authors whose work I enjoy have endorsed it:

Children of the Enaisi“This is an excellent book indeed. The characters are soundly crafted, and I soon found myself pulling for the protagonists and roundly cursing the villains. The society is complex and intriguing; the action scenes are detailed and well described. I look forward to reading the rest of this fine series.”
  – P.M. Griffin

“Children of the Enaisi has a beautiful high concept with a mysterious past of lost technology and ancient secrets. A fresh new take on Rangers that fans of classic pulp fantasy will love.”
  – Jon Del Arroz

 

Don’t worry, Children of the Enaisi is a stand-alone novel. However, don’t dismiss the first book, Sword’s Edge. It’s a fun tale as well, with a coming-of-age story, a siege, daring rescues, and more than a bit of humor.

But wait! There’s more!

There are freebies in the series. An anthology of three short stories entitled Alcandhor awaits you, as well as a fun snippet called “Not Good.”

All are available on the Sword’s Edge Chronicles page of my website.

Have fun and Merry Christmas!

Children of the Enaisi – available in e-book! I’m sooooo excited!!!

The long anticipated sequel to Sword’s Edge is finally out. Sort of . It’s available in e-book at the moment, and within a few days, the print version should be ready as well.

Yes, you read correctly! Children of the Enaisi is now available!

Check it out, as well as the two free stories also available for download in The Sword’s Edge Chronicles.

(If you like having the print edition, but would also like the e-book, you can save a few dollars by waiting for the print book, and then getting the e-book using Kindle MatchBook.)

Deuces Wild – The Space Romp You’ve Been Waiting For!

I have recently read several articles or posts from people who are tired of the overly serious, dark, dystopian science fiction that seems to dominate the scene right now.

If you’re tired of DDSF, why not try my Deuces Wild series? It’s adventurous, and yes, has some desperate moments, but doesn’t take itself too seriously.

From the forward of the first book, Beginners’ Luck:

“There is something intriguing about the prospect of throwing two different temperaments together and watching the sparks fly. Especially when one party is a rigorously meticulous death-dealer, and the other is a happy-go-lucky life-giver.

In Deuces Wild: Beginners’ Luck, we get to see the beginning of a classic, literary friendship. Two diametrically opposed personalities work together to forge their uneasy bond, thrown together by cruelty, circumstance, and sealed by something as old-school as “honor.”

Author L. S. King gives us a series which combines the best Western vibe of Butch and Sundance with the space-faring vigor of Joss Whedon’s Firefly. This is a new series whose elements feel familiar, but whose treatment is entirely fresh.”

Johne Cook
Editor, Ray Gun Revival magazine

And endorsements for Stacking the Deck show the second book keeps the same spirit:

“Recommended reading to all lovers of space opera, science fiction, and unlikely buddies saving the universe.”
Keanan Brand

“It’s fast-paced, fun, and well-written. …you probably won’t put it down until you finish.”
Lou Antonelli

“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

So what are you waiting for? The Deuces Wild books are available in print or in e-book format.

Summertime Reading Suggestions

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.)
