New Release: Dead Run

The website has been down, and what better way to test it than with a new release? My first release since we found out about Mother Hen’s brain cancer! It’s a wonderful step forward. 🙂

For Mira Escala, a new job overseeing docks at Abashiri Sky City represents a new start. Until she winds up in the wrong place at the wrong time, witnessing the wrong event. Accused, her life on the line, and with no one to trust, Mira runs.

New Release – Aurora Equinox (Salmon Run – Book 6)

Aurora EquinoxWith the equinox come the aurora and the itch of spring…

Good moods are scarce in Salmon Run these days. Zach Callahan’s lingering foul mood even manages to drive off Sasha. His concerned father insist on a check-up visit to the local spaceship just as Zach discovers a threat worthy of true worry:

The return of a threat from the south.

Welcome to Salmon Run, Alaska! A place of wild animals, wild land, and wild inhabitants…oh, and native legends come alive and an inter-planetary alien conflict at their backdoor.

Available at the following retailers:

Amazon | Apple | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Smashwords

***

Yes, another Salmon Run book! Zach, Sasha, and Hawk are off on another grand adventure, one they aren’t so thrilled to be on. Hey, who said life in Alaska is easy?

Not only did the story turn out well, but I love the digital painting of the cover. The cover came together in the space of an afternoon in a smooth and fun way that very few covers achieve. I love the way the colors came together.




New Release: Bowl the Lizard

The Princess just knows it. Something important, something she can’t think of. With robot caretakers in tow she goes in search through the extensive royal gardens, determined to continue until it’s found.

No matter how deep into the gardens the search takes her.

A 3900 word science fiction fairy tale short story. This edition includes the complete BONUS story, “Gaslight Tea Party” by Alex Vaugn.

***

This is a different sort of story for me, but a fun one. It started with the prompt of “A Princess, A Lizard, and a Boatman” and then exploded when I title generator I designed popped up with the title of “Bowl the Lizard.” Yeah, it doesn’t take much to inspire me anymore. Tis the life of being a writer. 😛




New Release: Breaking Point

Everyone has their breaking point and Alfonso just found his…

A series of layoffs forces starship pilot Alfonso Wickham to make a shuttle deliver with no help other than the accompanying ‘efficiency expert’ who is watching his every move. He can’t do anything right, and the delivery quickly goes from bad to worse when local salvagers view his cargo as a quick easy score.

They don’t know they are messing with a man who has nothing left to lose.

____________________

Yes, a new novelette. It was intended to be a companion piece to “The Art of Negotiation” but ended up a little long, so it has been released on its own. It is, however, set in the same universe, but does not share any characters. Another of the Forward Motion May “Story-A-Day” short stories, and I think it came out fun. Most working people can sympathize with reaching a breaking point.

I guess I’ll have to try to write a shorter work to pair with “The Art of Negotiation.” Oh darn, more writing. How horribly wonderful. 😛
