Why not use it to buy a fun read?
Unlikely Prophet, the prequel to the Sword’s Edge Chronicles is on sale for only $0.99.
This novel is unlike the others in the series, taking place on another planet, one in the throes of destroying itself. The people have retreated to living in domes, in constant fear of an earthquake or volcanic eruption ending their existence. The long-dormant portal activates, and an alien arrives offering hope. Despite their fears, few are willing to risk all to such a drastic scheme. One man becomes the force to impel his people to flee to safety before it’s too late.

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.
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:
Today was so superb! Not only did I have a booth in between two great writers and author friends (Will Hahn and Bobbie Palmer), but I saw many other friends as well and some great cosplay. (And I got to hug lots of the Doctor! Wheeeee!)
So all of that in and of itself made it a fantastic day, but something else made it even better. I had folks come up to my table exclaiming about my new book. It wasn’t always the same one either. Quite a few wanted the second book of the Deuces Wild series, Stacking the Deck, and some wanted Children of the Enaisi (book two of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles). When they found out there was also a prequel that takes place 1,000 years before, quite a few snatched that one up too.
I got home to a private message from someone who wants book four (when its released) for a gift for a family member who is a big fan of my books. And a FB post mentioning me from someone at the Con who loves my writing.
For those who aren’t close enough to attend (and if that’s the case I’m sorry, I’m so sorry), you can still snag the two new titles, or if you perhaps haven’t started the series yet, now is the time, because the fourth book in that series is due out this fall. You can get the first book, Sword’s Edge, online in print or ebook (in lots of different formats).
The two new books of the series are (in published order): Children of the Enaisi, which continues hard on the heels of the first book, Sword’s Edge, and book three, entitled Unlikely Prophet, a prequel which takes place 1,000 years in the past, and adds to the depth and understanding of their world.
Book four, Laws and Prophecies, as I said will be out soon.
And in case swords, capes, castles, aliens, portals, bio-tech, and telepathy aren’t your thing, I also have two novels in a space opera series: Deuces Wild. It’s about a cowboy and a space pirate. Or is he a mercenary? Or an assassin? Perhaps you’ll figure it out.
