Posts Tagged ‘Book Series’

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. It is a beautiful day out here today, so I’m thinking of taking the Lugnut for a walk.

And then tonight, I’m going to find something to read. I just finished The Forgotten Witch by Jessica Dodge and loved every page of it. Elements of magic and romance, past and present lives… I would definitely recommend it if you’re a fan of the genre.

What are you reading tonight?

Can I interest you in something romantic, with a twist of the paranormal?

Check out Gambler’s Folly series or Esperance. Or if magic is more your thing, try Master of the Fleet.

And as always,

Mother Nature, please make up your mind. This back and forth is making me crazy.

I don’t know what the weather in your part of the world is like, but we go from temperatures in the 70’s to temperatures in the 50’s overnight. And then the lows go from the 50’s to the 20’s.

Could someone please check on Nature’s medications? I think she needs a refill…

Sorry I haven’t been here in a bit. I’ve had surgery and have been trying to catch up on everything I had to let slide. But I’m back now! Watch out world!

As for what I’m working on, my editor has a new book in the Esperance series, and one from Sultonna Nadine which should both come out this year.

Ben of Blackstone’s Forge is another paranormal romance from Esperance. And as you might guess, Ben is a blacksmith. But the love of his life turned cold when he had to leave temporarily to finish his apprenticeship. Nobody knows why, but the woman he was sure he would marry will have nothing to do with him.

Or anyone else, apparently.

And his father is determined Ben should marry soon, going so far as to set a time limit on finding someone suitable. When Ben doesn’t meet his deadline, the man arranges a marriage for him–with the girl who shuns his attentions.

And from Sultonna Nadine?

Whiskey Jug Genie!

Martin runs an apothecary in London. Taking his holiday in the American Southeast, he comes across an old whiskey jug which would be ideal as part of the decor in his shop.

How could he know it housed a genie, who had been trapped for over 200 years? And that the only way to rid himself of his new guest is to remove a curse cast by a long dead witch?

Watch for these two books this year. I’ll keep you posted on release dates.

In the meantime, why don’t you catch up on the Esperance Series?

You can find all the links on my links page.

Or go to Amazon or Smashwords!

For Sultonna Nadine, check out Master of the Fleet, a story set in an alternate universe where magic is just a part of everyday life.

So whether you’re cozying up to the fire or opening the windows to catch a breeze, grab a nice cuppa, a good book, and sit for a spell.

And as always,

Don’t Forget…

Just what are Talents anyway? I talk a lot about them in my Esperance books. So let’s take a peek at what I’m talking about.

Generally speaking, Talents are like psychic abilities. You may be familiar with the concept of mental telepathy or telekinesis. On Esperance, this takes a much broader stroke across the population. Healers have a gift for using energy to counter illness and work with doctors to keep the clan healthy.

Take for instance the Ferguson family. The ruling family of Clan Ferguson is known for having an affinity for the forest and wood products in general. In Clan Brannach, a family related to the ruling family owns a lumber yard. They also create works of art from wood in unusual ways, using these Talents.

What most people don’t know is how attuned to the forest they really are. (Morgan–The Pixie and the Green Man).

When it comes to First Lords, those Talents can come in a number of ways. Most are adept at mental telepathy, telekinesis, remote viewing and the like. Some can teleport to places they’ve been to before.

What makes the difference in their strength is the amount of energy they can control to direct this Talent. No one has every found the limits of Jareth’s powers.

Then we come to Viviane, who should have lost any abilities she had during childhood. Nobody knows exactly why, but they resurfaced during the trouble her clan had with Clan Brannach, stirred up by her traitorous brother, Carl. All the Talents one would expect for an heir of the clan became hers, and were completely out of control.

This brought up another issue. Since Talent is tied to emotions in a lot of cases, whenever she became emotional at all, or began to daydream, she affected everyone within reach of her abilities. Maids would be dancing down the hallway as she visualized a dancer while playing her flute. Her anger sent people flying out of her path.

And the stronger her abilities became, the more trouble they were.

Now, picture two people who are extremely gifted when passion ignites in the bedroom…

Yeah…

Both Viviane and Jareth were tired of having to control their emotions during those intimate times, but so far the only solution was to go to the mountain cabin. While Jareth could teleport them up the mountain, it was rather a nuisance.

But Jareth has a plan and it’s almost time for Viviane’s birthday. It will certainly be one she will never forget.

Come with me to Esperance. Maybe we can wish Viviane a happy birthday in person.

And don’t forget Connell, over in Clan Belfort. We’ll talk about him next time.

Ready to read? You can find the Esperance series, including Too Many Talents, over at Amazon.

Yes, all the books in my Esperance Series on on sale this week, through October 7!

Why, you ask?

Too Many Talents has been released and I know some of you have read only one or two of the series. And if you’re like the rest of us, money is a little tight these days.

So if you’ve been on the fence, now’s the time to go ahead and take the plunge.

Go over to Smashwords, to my profile page, and use the coupon code TN33P when you check out. Each book in the series is on sale for $1.49. Now, I ask you, what else can you get for that price these days?

Jareth, First Lord–Book 1 begins the series just before Jareth and Viviane meet. And then the fun begins as he tries to win her heart.

Viviane, First Lady–Book 2 continues the story of Jareth and Viviane as she strives to gain control over Talents which have suddenly appeared, throwing the whole house into chaos.

Morgan–The Pixie and the Green Man–Book 3. This book is inset into the story to showcase Morgan, who appeared in Book 1. There was just something about her I wanted to explore, so I gave her a story of her own.

Too Many Talents–Viviane and Connell–Book 4. This picks up the story from Book 2, after Jareth and Viviane return from a visit to Clan Belfort. Still working to manage her Talents, and yet resisting them at the same time, causes a few major manifestations of Talent gone wrong.

In her home clan of Belfort, her nephew, the new heir of the clan, is struggling with his Talents, as well as wondering why they are necessary.

So come with me and join the fun on Esperance, a wonderful world full of mischief, magic, and romance.

Yes! Too Many Talents is now live and available for Kindle and at Smashwords! Book 4 of the Esperance Series, it continues where Book 2 finished, just after Jareth and Viviane get home from her brother’s trial.

After the incident at her brother’s trial, Viviane is even more certain she doesn’t want Talents. But resisting her training brings more trouble in the form of unintentional manifestations of Talents. And when she throws energy at her instructor in anger, she teleports away from the house in a panic at what could have happened.

With the whole house in an uproar, Jareth is finally able to find her and convince her to devote herself wholeheartedly to her training.

Meanwhile, in her home clan of Belfort, her nephew, Connell, is having difficulties of his own. First he had to leave his village, his family, and his friends to the clan center with his grandparents. There was just no way for him to keep up with his schoolwork and begin training his Talents.

But why does he need Talents? Will they really come in useful?

When his little admirer, Nellie, is assaulted and he uses his Talents to rescue her, he begins to get an idea of what it means to be Talented and a First Lord.

And when she is hurt again and he can’t go to her to help, his frustration and anger bring out another Talent for him to train.

Come with me to Esperance and join us in the ups and downs, the trials and triumphs, and everything else which makes this world unique.

Come to Esperance!

Yes! The final edits are finished on Too Many Talents. Now for the formatting. Which hopefully won’t take too long.

I love writing, the creative process. And I love my computer because it makes this process so much easier. But when it comes to formatting, me and computers don’t get along.

But with any luck, you will have Book 4 from Esperance very soon. Ebook will be out on Smashwords and Kindle first, with paperback and hardcover to follow on Amazon.

So what is it about?

After a frightening incident at her brother’s trial, Viviane would like to forget all about Talents and let them fade away. Unfortunately, the more she resists the training, the more trouble it causes. When she accidentally throws her instructors desk into a wall and then throws energy at him in her frustration, she takes the only way out that comes to mind. She teleports to the mountain cabin, throwing the entire household into a panic trying to find her.

Another thing weighing on her mind is why she isn’t pregnant yet. They’ve been together long enough to have had a child by now, but nothing. What if she can’t give Jareth an heir to his clan?

Over in Belfort, Connell, the new heir who is almost eleven, is having troubles of his own. He misses his old home and friends since he’s moved to his grandfather’s house to train. And he still doesn’t quite understand the need for all these Talents. But an incident with a little admirer helps put things into perspective.

Of course, when he later finds out she’s been hurt, his anger and frustration bring out another Talent for him to work on…

Join Jareth, Viviane, Connell, and all their friends on their delightful world–Esperance–where there’s never a dull moment.

Have a wonderful weekend.

And as always,

Don’t Forget…

Yes! I have the final edits for Too Many Talents. Now for a read through on my end and I can begin formatting it for ebook, paperback, and hardcover.

I’m not sure which bit I dislike the most–editing or formatting. But they are both right up there on my “do I gotta?” list.

So watch here for the release date. And if you want a little preview, go back and check out the post on Too Many Talents.

If you haven’t read the previous three books, go to Amazon and look for the Esperance Series.

Until later,

Don’t Forget…
