Posts Tagged ‘Gambler’s Folly’

No, I haven’t quit writing… But the editing takes time. And I have two series and a stand alone line to keep going.

I have a new book with the editor right now under the Sultonna Nadine name titled Mistaken Identity. It is a romantic intrigue set in a star system with two inhabited worlds on the brink of war. And it appears their best shot at gaining the intel to avert catastrophe lies with a troublesome female prisoner Commander Romaoff is holding in his prison on Novay Kemlya.

In the Gambler’s Folly series, I’m working on the editing for Book 4–Old Flame. Kort and Liz met at university. While they were good friends, they never actually dated. Since then, they’ve both pretty much given up on love. But thirty years after university, they meet by chance, on their way to Gambler’s Folly.

From Esperance we have Talents, Book 4 in the series. This continues Viviane’s story from Book 2. She is still struggling to control her Talents, with limited success. After the commotion she caused at her brother’s trial, she is afraid of her Talents and wishes they would go away. Hence her troubles. On top of everything else, her Talents and Jareth’s will prevent pregnancy until she has a handle on her abilities, and no amount of wishing will help.

At the same time, her nephew, Connell is having troubles of his own with Talent. Only his problem is mainly getting them reawakened to the point where he can train to rule the clan in his grandfather’s stead. But at eleven years old, it’s a pretty heavy load.

And then there is Whiskey Jug Genie, which is a fun little story I’ll probably publish as Sultonna Nadine. A London apothecary shop owner and herbalist, Martin, tours the American Southeast and buys an old whiskey jug to display in his shop. But when he pulls the stopper in his apartment, a genie–or djinn as he prefers to be called–who has been trapped in the jug for a couple centuries comes out to completely disrupt his life. A redneck genie with a unique manner of speaking who is completely out of touch with the modern world.

So wish me luck on my editing and wish my editor patience and perseverance. We;ll be back to you with new reads as soon as we can.

Wishing you a pleasant weekend and splendid summer.

It seems too soon for the month to be ending, but it is. And with the end of May comes the end of the book sale over at Smashwords. So if you haven’t checked it out, tomorrow, May 31 is your last chance.

So what else has been happening in my world?

We had a solid week of drizzle and rain, with temperatures in the 60’s. So now, during the past two days, the rain has ended and the temperatures have soared into the 80’s. Great for the tomatoes, but I’m not so keen on the shift.

I finished the first draft of Whiskey Jug Genie and set it aside to rest for a little while and am back to shaping the ending for Lady Calloway. What that girl can get up to…

And I have a new website to share, where you can find all my books, with previews and links. It’s over at Author Uproar. Go take a look for me and let me know what you think.

But the deck garden seems to be coming along, so when I need a break from dominant males and feisty females, I go chill on the deck with the cat and my herbs. They’re a lot less stressful.

So drop by and say hi, and tell me about your summer reading. If you have anything you’d like to share, feel free to comment or catch me on Facebook.

In the meantime, have a great week, keep reading,

and Don’t Forget to Share the Romance

How is everyone doing today? We’ve had a few thundershowers, but nothing too bad. Of course, The Monster would disagree. She’s hiding from the thunder and growling.

Maybe it’s time to sit down with The Monster and Miss Kitty and assure them they’ll be all right. I’m sure I can find something to read…

Have you read the books in the Gambler’s Folly Series?

How about The Russian?

Dmitri Ivanovich Volkov–known as The Russian–is a wolf shifter who has been around for over 500 years. He’d had a soulmate once, but she died 200 years ago, taking a huge chunk of his heart with her.

Now he hunts alone. He doesn’t want a mate. The pain of loss is too great, and he’s already lost everyone he’d ever known, except for his coworkers in this generation.

But Mother Nature has other plans for this wolf shifter.

What are people saying about The Russian?

If you love paranormal reading as I do. Then you will love, “The Russian!” It is well written and keeps you reading from page one.”

So if you need a break from this world, go visit one of mine. Gambler’s Folly. The people are friendly, the food is tasty, and there’s always something going on.

Wishing you a wonderful week!

The Monster
Miss Kitty–Not amused…

Book 2 in the Gambler’s Folly series, this book begins where Book 1 left off. Dam and Kari travel to Earth with their friends to have the big wedding his family wants.

Included in the wedding party are Marco, Paul, and Dante, Dam’s best friends and colleagues from Gambler’s Folly.

Panther shifter, Dante, was born on Gambler’s Folly and this is his first time leaving it. And he’s leaving to go to his boss’s and good friend’s wedding.

Why does his friend have all the luck? Money, power, and now a soulmate. Would Dante ever find someone to share his life? Why did he get so tongue-tied around the fairer sex?

And then he meets Angela and his mouth has a mind of its own.
Be careful what you wish for…

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!
