Going Wide

For those of you following me and reading my books, I want you to know that I have now begun publishing all my novels on Draft to Digital. That means they will all be available in multiple formats. I’m going to list the books below, but first.

Dark Night of Soul, my first novel is set in the horror genre but it is so much more than that. What I’m writing about is how our lives, the lessons we learn as children, shape the decisions we make, how they give us the strength to make the decisions we know we should no matter the personal consequences. In Dark Night we meet Marcus . Having escaped the brutal existence forced upon him by Gregor (a monster very different than many you’ve seen), Marcus has chosen to be the last of Gregor’s prisoners. Both Marcus and Gregor faced abuse, Gregor’s by his parents. Without the love of family, with only painful memories, he chooses to let the darkness in his life consume him. Marcus, facing the same type of abuse, uses the memories of his childhood, the lessons they taught him, not only to survive and but to keep fighting against the darkness Gregor gave him and step into the light.

A Darkness Descending, my second novel, uses what I learned as a child to shape Marcus into the man he later becomes. His memories and experiences lead him to a possible freedom, one he leaves behind in his decision to stop Gregor. You learn as he does, what the difference a hug, loving parents, their understanding and encouragement can mean to a child.

Sister World 2, The Fight For Earth

The day has finally come. Sister World 2 is available at Amazon paperback and Kindle format. It is also available at Apple books, and Kobo. It will soon be available at 24 Symbols, OverDrive, Bibliotheca, Baker & Taylor, Hoopla, Barnes and Noble, Scribd and Tolino. It felt great to finally finish the edits and submit the book. Operation Switchback, the plan Kahill of Terah developed to rescue our leaders, putting them back in power is audacious and filled with danger. The physics is as real as possible in theoretical physics. Though the places and people are an invention of my over active imagination, a great deal of research went into making them people you might meet and grow to love or in some cases hate. Please make sure to get your copy and post a review on Amazon.

Sister World 2

S/W2 is finally in the next phase. I have my first review, which I’ll post below, but first;

I have done so much research, the physics is theoretical, which means possible if not probable. The names, flora and fauna, and the animals would exist as they are portrayed. Of course that they could speak and what they would say is a product of my imagination. I did extensive research on the places and peoples that would live in the places I invented. The battles are as accurately portrayed as possible in fiction. I hope, when it becomes available you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Of course, you will need to read SW 1. I did start book two with a recap and a list of characters to refresh those who have waited for the second book.


Review:

I love the way the author gives her characters looks, motives and background with just a few sentences or a paragraph and I felt as though I knew them. The battle scenes were so well written and I enjoyed the way that the characters and their mirrors were exchanged….this book is a real winner… Andrea LeBlanc

Update

It’s hard to post this. On July 8th, I sat by my mother. I held her in my arms, singing the Ave Maria while she drew her last breath. Losing her is painful, but there is also the pain of not finishing Sister World 2. My biggest fan, she loved Sister World 1 and was quite adamant that I not kill her favorite characters. If you can hear me Mom, I didn’t. Though often said, these things are true: time passes too quickly. Good times do not last forever, and bad times do not define us. No matter the troubles, remember to love as hard as you can. Say I love you often, ask forgiveness when you need to and forgive even when you don’t want to. Try to bring a smile to someone’s face everyday. It’s a gift you can’t buy.

Sister World 2 Prologue

The prologue sets the stage for Kahill and Becarra’s leading the new resistance to the well hidden resistance headquarters, the mirror of the one on Terah. From there, a plan must be made to capture the imposters, rescue our people and put them back in place. A complicated mission, with characters that will pull you into the story. I will post the publishing date as soon as it’s available.

Prologue

             Sister World 1  began when Kahill and Cara of Terah, learned of Earth, a planet in an alternate universe, and the wormhole that is the gateway to it.  Knowing that Frauliege, Terah’s despotic leader, is sending her people to this new world, replacing Earth’s leaders with hers they braved the wormhole.  Arriving on Griffen Island, a small island off the coast of Canada, they locate their mirrors; Peter, Becky, and their father, Dr. Samuel Benjamin.   and a new resistance is built.

         Using a bird carrying flu, Griffen is isolated from the rest of the world.  As the landing pad for the wormhole, it is the base for the Tehran invasion. General Hinman, Commander of their forces is looking for Dr.’s Samuel and Charles Benjamin for their knowledge of the Wormhole and the contacts they have with those who could save the Earth.

         Eve Conner, the local news anchor, having sought refuge from those taking over the station, upon learning the truth behind the flu, bravely returned to the station, becoming a spy.  It is from her that the resistance learns that the local fishing fleet has been captured.  When the fleet’s Captain’s execution is planned, the new resistance, with the help of TEV; a thought, emotion, vocalizer, that allows communication between peoples and animals, a rescue is planned.  Kahill assuming command, plans the mission, using the most unusual army ever assembled.  Together the island’s animals, the students rescued from Peter’s school, Dr. Benjamin and his family, and Becarra and Kahill, the  fishermen are rescued.  Nathan, the apprentice of the island’s only doctor, hiding in the mountains surrounding the island, sees the battle, and, following the smoke of the resistance’s fire, discovers their hideout.  It is then that Kahill reveals that he has prepared a place on Earth that is the home of Terah’s Resistance headquarters.   Our story begins there. 

Sister World 2

Just finished writing Sister World 2 . It’s been a great experience. I’ve done so much research and have much to thank Robert Zannelli for his physics help and his extensive knowledge of so many things. Now for the Beta reader and the edits and maybe I can put away my four notebooks. I am so looking forward to its release. Sister World I is available everywhere and truly worth the read.

Sister World I, The Arrival

The good news is Sister World I has gone wide.
