Author Woes

In order to keep from creating a bunch of continuity errors, I am going to have to reread all three books of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles: Sword’s Edge, Children of the Enaisi, and Laws and Prophecies. And Unlikely Prophet as well and take copious notes.

Why, you ask? I’m starting the sequel to Unlikely Prophet, and also the next book in the Sword’s Edge Chronicles.

An Encouraging Few Weeks as an Author

It’s been an eventful few weeks.
To recap:

I recently had an interview in Liberty Island.

 And a reader wrote a wonderful FB post:

“…when someone knows how to story tell . . .to use adjectives and plots and creatively create a entire new world and describe it while telling a story. . .is an art. This author has that ability, and as you can see, I am finding time each night to read a chapter or two because now that I have started I keep wanting to know where the story is going to go (the crack cocaine of the art).”
 —FB post by Jim Green (re: Sword’s Edge)

Also I got a new review of Sword’s Edge:

L.S. King has created a setting that is primarily Fantasy (Rangers, Psychic Powers, Nobility, etc.) and partially SF. (Nope, not saying why. Read the book.) So I guess, in a way, it’s reverse Star Wars.
rating: 4.75/5

With all author events canceled this year, it’s been rather dismal, but the last few weeks have brought a smile to my face.

Not to mention, this autumn, the first three books of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles were released in an ebook boxset.

Also, the prequel to the series, Unlikely Prophet, is still on sale for only $0.99!

Unlikely Prophet – only .99!

Unlikely Prophet

The History of the Crossing which happens 1000 years before Sword’s Edge.

“Chief.” Galadhan, already in his armor, had one hand to his helmet. The lines on his face seemed more hardened than usual. “Central reports this isn’t a mere earthquake. A volcano has just appeared out of nowhere in the Northwest. It has destroyed Agri-dome One and Two, and the entirety of West Ridge is out of communication. The last message was that the ridge was collapsing. Earthquakes have hit the all over the plain and East Valley. It seems almost every dome has been breached. The rail-tube system is down. All of it.”

The blood drained from Avadhron’s face. This is it. Our time of grace has ended.

Unlikely Prophet

Still only $0.99!

A New Review of Unlikely Prophet! “He likes it! Hey, Mikey!”

I just got a new review of Unlikely Prophet!

Wonderful world-building infused by an origin story of planet-ending drama, class tension and alien conflict, and the hope and promise of new beginnings. If you like sword and planet, this prequel novel will be the start of a new series I think you’ll enjoy. 4 1/2 Stars.

Thank you, kind reviewer!

Laws and Prophecies – book three of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles Available Now!

Yes, finally, after many delays, it has happened! Laws and Prophecies is now available!

Thane Alcandhor is assailed from all sides: treason within his clan, conspiracies from kin, and turmoil due to the return of the aliens known as the Enaisi. When hit by a final onslaught—rebellion by provincial lords threatening to set up their own despotic princedoms, Alcandhor is forced to choose between upholding their laws and fulfilling ancient, haunting prophecies.

Laws and Prophecies cover

Laws and Prophecies…is indeed concerned with the details of laws and prophecies, which fundamentally affect every citizen. I would call it a novel of manners, where social and legal interpretations are essential… [t]here is indeed more to science fiction than pyrotechnics.”
Piers Anthony

 “I liked the novel very much. King covered a lot of territory and brought on a number of situations darkly hinted at in the earlier books.”
P.M. Griffin


This is book three of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles, and I do highly recommend you read these books in order:
Sword’s Edge
Children of the Enaisi

To get you started, I am offering book one, Sword’s Edge, at half-price in ebook format.

It also wouldn’t hurt to read Unlikely Prophet, the prequel which takes place 1000 years earlier, as it will give further insight to various events in the series. Just a suggestion.

 

🥳

 

New Review: “Another enjoyable read by L. S. King”

A new review had been posted about Unlikely Prophet:

This was a great prequel in her Sword’s Edge series. I love how real the world feels and how the characters are just thrown into it and have to learn to live and survive. Definitely a winner.
