Finally have a working title for the primary work in progress, The Invention of Motherhood.

The main protagonist is once again Graciela Juarez di Scimtar, aka Grace. That said, it is separated by enough both by events and by focus from the first four Grace books that it is more the beginning of a new series rather than a continuance of the first four.

I'm also doing preliminary plotting on a third Preparations for War book. When I need mental breaks, I'm working on a fantasy tentatively titled The Gates to Faerie, and another book that's difficult to describe except that it is a riff somewhere between Michael Moorcock's Tanelorn, Roger Zelazny's Amber, and the shared world anthologies of Sanctuary edited by Robert Lynn Aspirin, and the main character is an exile from a pre-Interregnum Empire of Humanity.

Only $2.99 on Kindle!

BookCoverImage Building The People.jpg


Joe and his native wife Asina have spent the last twenty years helping the natives of Wimarglr Continent on Calmena throw off their overlords, both demonic and human. Through the advancement of Calmenan technology through Earth techniques of blacksmithing and Imperial knowledge of how to use the mental gifts the demons bred into the Calmenans, the continent of Wimarglr has been mostly freed. Now it is time to spread the rebellion to the rest of Calmena, which requires bringing the art of shipbuilding to a world that has never known a boat more advanced than a canoe. But the demons are not willing to give Calmena up easily, and a counteroffensive is on the way that will rock the free humans to their limits.

(For those who want a physical book, the paperback is here. Amazon has yet to directly link the two editions, but they will do so eventually.)

The Text files for Building the People are all ready to go, and I will be uploading them momentarily. Mostly waiting for my artist to finish the cover illustration.

Almost forgot to mention that Book 2 of Preparations for War, Building The People has been finished and off to the beta readers. Approximately 70,000 words in initial draft form.

There will be a third to the series; it's in the planning stages.

Now working on the fifth Rediscovery novel, as of yet untitled.

Amazon Christmas Kindle Deals

| | Comments (0)

This is the first time I have ever put these books on sale. It may be the last.

Starting 8 AM Tuesday, December 20th through 8 AM Saturday, December 24th, the Kindle editions of both "What Consumers Need to Know About Mortgages" and "What Consumers Need to Know About Buying Real Estate" will be on sale for 99 cents.

For 99 cents, you can learn how to avoid the deadly mistakes that cost most consumers many thousands of dollars in shopping for a home or a mortgage.

If you may be shopping for a home or a loan or both in the new year, the information contained in these books will teach you enough to drastically improve your outcome.

If you know anyone that may be in the market for either soon, they are great gifts, and can be downloaded immediately. No hoping Santa or the delivery service gets there on time - immediate gratification!

Also, for the first time since last Christmas, the full kindle version of The Man From Empire (Book One of Rediscovery) will be FREE from January 19th to January 23rd. You can't get a better price than that. Try it for free, and if you don't like it, delete it. If you do like it - which I'm betting you will - there are three more published in the series (all still only $2.99 on kindle!).

Again, immediate download. If you're looking for a gift, no worrying about the delivery service getting there on time

The Man From Empire

I need reviews of my books on amazon. So until I have fifty reviews, I will send a full and complete textfile of the Man From Empire in exchange for an honest review. Contact me by email, private message, or here. Give me a place to send it (notepad textfile format). No cash, just review when you're done reading it. This is not limited to people I know directly. I need reviews.

PS If you have read and not reviewed, please post a review

The fiction project I'm making the most headway on at the moment is set before the Interregnum, a story about one of the first Guardians capable of creating splinters and what happens when one becomes independent of the originating Guardian. The working title is "Splinter"
