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.)

Two Day Until Deuces Wild – Book Two! Check Out the Endorsements!

Posted in Deuces Wild, My Writing, Writing with tags , , , on September 18, 2016 by Loriendil

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

Administering Some Old “Justice”

Posted in My Writing, Writing with tags , , , on July 15, 2015 by Loriendil

Back in ’06, the now defunct The Sword Review published one of my short stories entitled “Justice.”

It was so well received that it was included in Double-Edged Publishing’s Distant Passages, Volume 2, their second “best of” anthology.

And now, I offer it – free – in e-book formats:

Your Last Last Chance in 2014!!

Posted in Deuces Wild, My Writing, Sword's Edge Chronicles, Uncategorized, Writing with tags , , , , , on December 31, 2014 by Loriendil

I’m blatantly stealing an idea from a friend (what are friends for?):

You know those spam emails and notices you get that tell you it’s the last chance to donate for the year to get a tax deduction? Well, I’m playing off that idea (which, as I said I stole from my friend Jane Lebak) and announcing LOUDLY that this is your last chance to buy Sword’s Edge and Deuces Wild: Beginners’ Luck in either e-book, print, or both in the year 2014!

Quickly!

Act now before it’s too late!

And if you buy before the New Year rings in, you’ll get great luck in 2015, win lotteries you didn’t even play, and confetti will rain on you every day!*
