A New Threat is Re-released!

Psygens and Space Cats: A New Threat Cover thumbnail

After a long wait, A New Threat is once again available to read!

It’s been a while, but A New Threat now has a shiny new cover, a new series name (Psygens and Space Cats), and is freshly edited.

 

About A New Threat:

A simple diplomatic mission becomes a life and death struggle that could plunge the entire galaxy into a war…

When an alien ship lands unexpectedly in the middle of her clan’s territory, Bast is sent to investigate as part of her scout trial. After an accident, she meets these new visitors. She and her senior scout Rrrark are invited to return with the aliens to their home planet to open diplomatic relations. What started out as a simple mission becomes complicated when they discover a pirate scheme that might be more than it seems. Are Bast, Rrrark, and two of the aliens called Psygens capable of stopping the pirates?

Cover Reveal for A New Threat

We’re getting closer to the re-release of A New Threat. That’s right, it’ll be available to purchase again soon!

Today I’m revealing the shiny new cover.

But first, some background information. 😉

 

I first started working on A New Threat back around 2007. It was the first real novel I’d tried to write, and I learned a lot in the process… and it took forever to write…

To help inspire myself, I made my own cover. As you can see, I had a different working title at the time. I polished the text, changed the series title and the book title, and submitted it to Alt-Wit press.

They liked it enough to publish, and it came out in 2015.

I really enjoyed working with Alt-Wit, and they were putting out some great books. For a variety of reasons, they’ve had to scale back, and reverted rights on practically all of their titles to the authors.

I could’ve just slapped A New Threat right back up on Amazon, but wanted to take the opportunity to re-edit it, clean it up a little (no new content, but I’m bringing it up to my current standards), and get a new cover.

Hey, we’re back to the actual topic of this post. Shortest rabbit trail I’ve ever been on, yay!

So, A New Threat is coming again soon, this time from Splashdown books. I’m also changing the series title again for at least the third time.

Etherno: Rise of the Dragongirl Web Serial Release

Etherno cover thumbnail imageEtherno:Rise of the Dragongirl, Chapter One: New Girl is now available to read online!

How’s this work?

Every Saturday, I’ll release a new chapter of Etherno:Rise of the Dragongirl. When the last chapter of the book has been released, there will be a short delay for last-minute revisions and such, then Etherno will be available in e-book and print format.

Why a web release? Because I wanted to try something different. At the moment, I’ve got at least three books I’m working on in various stages of development. If you’ve been following my blog since A New Threat was first released, you’ve probably noticed that I, uh, struggle, to post regularly. So, the idea of doing a weekly web serial release does a few things: it pretty much forces me to do something writing related every day, it gives me regular content that (I hope…) people actually want to read, and it will let people know what I’m up to and stay engaged with my writing while avoiding boring “I typed x many words today…” posts.

So, make sure to come back every Saturday to read the next chapter! If you’d like a reminder when it’s posted, you can sign up for the newsletter, and I’ll send a link straight to you.

Scholarship student Onin thought magical school would be easy.

Sure, his roomie’s a little flakey and one of his classmates tends to sneeze herself into the wall, but that’s par for the course. Onin’s even made a connection with cute (and oddly warm) newcomer, Kasai.

Then the alien Natas start possessing humans and targeting the magically-gifted. Now it will take all of Onin’s wits and his magical classmates’ help to stop the invasion and discover the true endgame of the Natas.

Thankfully, they have a fiery half-dragon ally. One who seems curiously connected to quiet Kasai…

Read the first chapter online now!

Also available on Wattpad…

Come back next Saturday for Chapter 2: The “Witch”

Etherno: Rise of the Dragongirl – Progress Report

Okay, I’d planned to release Etherno: Rise of the Dragongirl last weekend, only my plans were like this:

So, since then, I’ve:

  • got at least three beta-reads back, and incorporated the changes.
  • updated the blurb (back-of-the-book teaser)
  • ordered a cover!!

So, now my ducks are more like:

ducks in the same pond

Progress is being made! Hopefully by next weekend, or shortly after, my ducks will finally be:

ducks in a row

As soon as I get the final cover, I’ll be sure to post it!

New Serial Story February 24th

So, after a while of not doing much (day job, blah, blah) I’ve decided to release one of my WIPs (Work In Progress) as a web serial. I’ve also release  new version of the website to make that process easier.

Three of the stories that I’m working on take place in the same story universe, on different planets. The elements that tie them together are the rare energy-capacitive metal onicranium, and the evil spectral-aliens, the Natas. Eventually, the stories and characters will come together.

This book is Etherno: Rise of the Dragongirl

Here’s the blurb: (updated 3/2/2018)

Scholarship student Onin thought magical school would be easy.

Sure, his roomie’s a little flakey and one of his classmates tends to sneeze herself into the wall, but that’s par for the course. Onin’s even made a connection with cute (and strangely warm) newcomer, Kasai.

Then the alien Natas start possessing humans and targeting the magically-gifted. Now it will take all of Onin’s wits and his magical classmates’ help to stop the invasion and discover the true endgame of the Natas.

Thankfully, they have a new half-dragon ally. One who seems curiously connected to quiet Kasai…

I’ll be releasing a new chapter every Saturday, starting soon!

Look for it here
