In my first book, “Mine”, I create a world where a group of aliens known as The Beings have come to Earth 70 years ago and with the world governments’ consent, set up top-secret instillations where they abduct and study humans. They do this because they are no longer able to produce children and they want to study us to find out why. They discover they can’t produce offspring because they have lost their emotions and as such, they no longer desire to procreate by having sex. Their hormones are almost gone and they are more like machines than people.

During this time of study, they kidnap a young woman, Abby, from her car on October 10, 1982. She’s put in stasis and denied all interactions for an indeterminant amount of time. Fast forward a few years to 2017, and she’s paired with a former teen runaway who has grown up hard and tough on the streets. He doesn’t trust anyone, heck Mace doesn’t LIKE anyone, but something about the woman in his cell, draws him in. After they form the mythical Psy-Bond, an accident sends Abby back to her abduction date. Mace has to find a way to get his Abby back. The world’s military forbid the Beings and Mace’s brother, Max from bringing in alien “bounty hunters who can travel in time” from rescuing Abby (from the second book in the series, “Ours”).

In comes the third book in my series, The Hunter. In this book Kai’el is from Otron and is trained to chase criminals through space…and time. He’s commissioned by The Beings to go back in time and save Abby and bring her back to 2018 and her mate…covertly of course. (Brings about the reason for the fourth book, “Saving The Elite”).

Personally, I love Mace. I know he’s my first protagonist, but he has stolen my author’s heart. He’s tough but has heart. He’s mean but only to protect what he loves. He’s stubborn but only when he knows backing down means defeat. He doesn’t trust easily but he is fiercely loyal. He also is muscled, tattooed, pierced, and has a deep voice. Oh and he says the f-bomb. A lot. but that endears him to me for some reason. The relationship between Mace and Abby inspired three books and they make appearances in others. But the big thing about Mace is how he relates to Kai once they meet. It surprised even me.

I decided to celebrate the abduction of Abby (because she never would have met Mace) and her rescue on October 10th. As such, The Hunter is FREE from 10/10-10/14/2018. I have all my books exclusively on Amazon and if you are a subscriber to Kindle Unlimited, you can get them free anyway! My books are only .99 so you can get the entire series…four books for less than four bucks.

PS for those who wonder, Mace was inspired by the actor Dominic Purcell and Kai was brought to you by Jason Momoa doing the Haka.

Happy Reading!

The Struggle is REAL

It’s funny to me that I’ve been a legit “author” now for about a month. I have six books on Amazon and the reason I have so many out now is because I want to be successful. I read an article on how to be successful as an “e-author”. It made an impression because I read it about 6 years ago and I still remember a few of the points that author made.

  1. Always get your books edited. An unedited book, full of grammatical errors and misspelled words will turn people off your book.
  2. Make your story make sense. Nothing worse than reading a book and being confused. With so many ebooks, it’s easy to ditch a book and find another.
  3. Always have good book covers…first impressions and all. As with paperbacks, you need a cover that grabs the attention of the prospective reader. Same point as #3, it’s super easy for readers to move on to the next book.
  4. Have a very good friend who will be honest about your writing ability. I really think this is important. I printed out my books and sent them to a friend. Granted I didn’t get lots of feedback, but what I did hear from them was they enjoyed my stories.
  5. Put books out quickly at first-people who like your book may search for others. I’ve been here as a reader. I got a book and after I was done, I would search for others by the author or even to see if it was part of a series. Once I’m hooked, I’ll scour for other books by  the author.

I had several books done and edited, with their covers purchased before I put my first book on. I put “Mine” on Amazon in August because I turned 50 that month and I wanted to be published before my birthday. I wanted to hit the big 5-0 knowing I had scratched one item off my bucket list. And I did. Since it’s part of a series, I put the rest out quickly because the first two books kind of ended in a cliffhanger. I didn’t know until after I was done with my books and had the covers in my Pictures file that most hate cliffhangers. That left me in a quandary. I spent hard earned money on covers, so ditching the covers to combine all the books seemed like a bad idea.

I stopped with the cliffhangers for my books but did end with epilogues that hopefully gives the reader an curiosity for the next book in the series. I really, really want to be successful. I really, really want a serious fan base. I picture myself as a success and sitting at Romanti-con talking with fans and hearing how much they like my little Universe.

So, I put out my sixth book and I truly feel it is one of my better stories because of the way my characters interact. They feel genuine to me, and I hope they do to the readers as well. I’ve already put my first book on promotion as “free”. I hope it helps people discover me as an author.
