Sometimes you want to read a story, but you don’t feel like reading. You don’t feel like TV. so what do you do?

Listen to a book from Audible!

I’ve been listening to some books here lately while I drive or when I’m just restless at night and can’t sleep. In the car, it gives me something to listen to besides the sound of the engine and the rough roads around here. At night, the soothing voice helps me relax into the story so I can sleep.

Don’t know what to listen to?

The first two books from my Esperance series are available from Audible, as well as my autobiographical book concerning my bout with breast cancer--Cancer and the Warrior’s Way.

Looking for something to read instead? You can find all of my books on sale at Smashwords through April 20 in the Authors Give Back sale as well as many others.

Don’t worry if the covers here don’t match Audible. I’m still working on getting the new covers uploaded…

So whether you want to listen or read, we have you covered. Go check it out and stay safe!

THE RUSSIAN?

The latest book from Gambler’s Folly, The Russian features Dmitri Ivanovich Volkov, a wolf shifter friend of Damiano and the gang. He’s been around a long time. Even he’s not quite sure how old he is, but of one thing he is certain.

He doesn’t need a mate.

He’d had a mate once, and when she’d died, he thought it would kill him. Since then, he has avoided entanglements. He’d outlived everyone he’d ever known, except for his current acquaintances. The pain was too much to deal with when it came to affairs of the heart.

Anyway, soul mates were once in a lifetime.

Weren’t they?

But when you’ve lived as long as Dmitri, perhaps the universe will give you a second chance

–in the shape of a petite blond with hazel eyes named Danni.

GAMBLER’S FOLLY–The Series

Mainstream Sensual, fantasy romance, shifters, HEA, PNR, M/F

Book 1–Gambler’s Folly.

Her husband lost her on one turn of the cards. Now the property of Damiano Leone, the dark lord of the underworld, Karianna is thrust into a world of glamour and danger. Now if she can sort out her feelings about this handsome and so very attentive man who claims her as his wife.

Book 2–Dante’s Angel

Dante was born on Gambler’s Folly, and though his family was originally from Earth, this is his first trip to their home planet. He wouldn’t have missed Dam and Kari’s wedding for anything, but it does rather accentuate his single status. Face it. Damiano had all the luck, from family and money to a soulmate. Dante had trouble talking to women, let alone asking them out. But thisall changes, when he meets Damiano’s sassy cousin, Angela, and he discovers his mouth has a mind of its own.

Book 3–The Russian

Dmitri is on Gambler’s Folly following up a shipment for Interpol and planning a nice evening with his friends, Dam and Kari, when he happens on a young woman in trouble. He didn’t need a woman in his life, but finds himself drawn to this petite blond with wide hazel eyes. Why he had given in to the urge to kiss her was unfathomable, but he couldn’t forget her honeyed-lilac scent or the fresh raspberries and white wine of her sweet mouth. How could he know Mother Nature was about to blind-side him with a soul mate?

Though I was beginning to wonder. Ain’t strep throat grand?

So I’ve been under the weather for about a week now trying to get over this stuff. And in the meantime, my brain has been working overtime on a project I had on a back burner from a couple years ago, to write sometime in the future. After I get through the backlog of other ideas I already have started.

But what do you do when your brain won’t shut off, especially in your sleep?

The only thing I’ve found that works is to at least write that one scene, which keeps playing out in your head, where you can deal with it later. When you’re ready to work with it.With a little luck.

Not that it’s a bad story line, or that it’s completely different from what I’d had in mind when I originally had the idea. It’s that I have so many things partway done at the moment. And I’d promised myself, and my editor, that I would finish up all these stories so we could think about getting them ready to publish before I started anything else.

Right.

So what else do I have to finish?

From Esperance, I need to brush up the next in the series, a story called Talents. After that I have another story written and waiting to be edited–Ben of Blackstone’s Forge. And then there is an idea which is partly written called Gregor Thayne, which is not only a story inset into the series, but furthers the overall plot of the series.

From Gambler’s Folly, there are two stories written and waiting to be edited, but they need to sit and rest for a while before I can have a fresh look at them. One is Old Flame, and the other is Scotch and Soulmates. I also have at least two other ideas for stories in this series.

The others are from Sultonna Nadine. There is Lady Calloway, which is nearly finished, but not quite. It is set in an alternate timeline of Victorian England.

Protector of the Red Dragon involves time travel from modern day America back to sixteenth century England and forward again in time to our future. There are paintings which act as portals, magic swords, and a host of tricky situations.

And of course there is Whiskey Jug Genie, about our herbalist from London who accidentally ends up with a redneck genie and the host of problems he brings with him.

And let’s not forget Mistaken Identity and Krista, who is mistaken for something she’s not, and then becomes central to a plan to aid two worlds–both hers and her captor’s.

This is not counting the ideas which are simply ideas of a few paragraphs, like Anya and the Mage; The Dane; two or three other ideas from Gambler’s Folly; a story set on a world of shifters, featuring dragons; The Travellers, following our couple through several lifetimes until they can fulfill their destiny; Sons of Macadam, featuring siblings scattered across the US to Scotland. There’s The Mercenary, Philippe and Mireille, and several others all waiting in line for their turn.

And then there are the two non-fiction books I have started–one on my life since diabetes. The other a lighthearted book concerning the family ghosts.

So why did Tank and Rogue decide it’s their turn now?

Who knows?

They are going to be a lively bunch, I can tell.

Anyway, I’ve got to get over the last of this strep throat. I have too much to do.

In the meantime, go on over and check out what I have already putlished, get caught up on your favorite series, see what Sultonna is up to, and I’ll let you know when there is a new release.

I’m also on Goodreads, so catch up with me there as well.

Now that The Russian is live on Amazon and Smashwords as an ebook, it’s time to get it and a couple others ready for paperback. What with my husband’s knee surgery in January, things have been a little busy to deal with the aggravation of formatting.

And then?

I think I’ll spend some time to finish a couple other books I have nearly finished, but set aside to get The Russian published and out to the world.

There is Whiskey Jug Genie, my 2019 NanNoWriMo project, which is nearly finished–as far as a first draft. In this Sultonna Nadine book, a London herbalist tours the American Southeast and buys an old whiskey jug, not realizing it was inhabited. When he releases the genie in his living room, the fun begins.

Then there is Lady Calloway, another Sultonna Nadine offering, set in an alternate timeline of Victorian England. She’s a small town girl from up North. He works for the church down in London and comes from a family of confessors–psychically gifted people who can bring any sinner to confession, no matter the cost.

And then there is Protector of the Red Dragon, from Sultonna Nadine. A fantasy set partially in modern times and partially in the 16th century, it combines fantasy, romance, and a touch of magic to usher in an era of peace and prosperity involving twin sisters, a magical sword, and a dragon.

While that’s all happening, Mistaken Identity is with my editor going through the initial edits. This is another stand alone from Sultonna Nadine. Captured in a brief military strike against her world from their sister planet, Krista is mistaken for someone she’s not. By the time her captors are convinced of the truth, the commander of the facility has hatched a plan with her at its core. Can she learn enough fast enough to help bring off a plan which will benefit both worlds, without losing her life, or heart, in the process?

And then there are the other books in the Esperance and Gambler’s Folly Series to finish editing. A couple need finishing as well. And some are waiting to be written, with a new idea popping up earlier this morning.

So it looks like it will be a busy year here on the farm. The Monster and Miss Kitty have settled in to give me a hand, so we’re all set.

Have a marvelous week, and if you haven’t checked out The Russian, to over and take a peek. He’s one of my favorite characters, and his mate is a feisty little she-wolf you’ll adore.
