At present I’m pitching my science fiction romance, SPACE FOR US, to agents looking for SFR. [Blinded by a deafening heartbeat whenever he’s near, a dangerous alien empath can’t read the emotions of an astronaut—a new model android?—tasked with killing her if she misbehaves on the way to her people’s moonbase.]
Bringing dark-phase albinos into the mix, once again, the contemporary BROKEN HALLELUJAH is getting its final edit/polish and will soon be pitched this coming spring 2023. [Fire chief and Navy SEAL, dark-skinned Cameron Young suffers from PTSD and his unrequited love of Dr. Alice Uhuru, a light-skinned emergency physician with his fire crew. Her rare genetics, a cause for international intrigue, as her expat Tanzanian parents are put in danger.]
From LEGENDS OF THE GOLDENS SERIES, both FORBIDDEN PLAYGROUND and DANCING DRAGONS are getting new covers and polishes before being combined and published with prequels A FAR FAR BETTER THING and LOVE ME, BITE ME. [Goldens are dark-phase albino space aliens that live in their conjured snow country of the Arctic. They attempt to hybridize Tanzanian humans with their offspring in order to produce subsequent generations that can psychically manipulate their worlds without the exhaustion that normally follows such activities.]
My New Adult SFR (science fiction romance) space opera is nearly all polished and out to agents before the end of this year. It has already won two awards and I’m optimistic that the three years I worked on it will guarantee an enjoyable read for my audience.
Fly Like An Eagle just out today and it’s already in Amazon’s top 100 for STEAMPUNK.
A coming of age for tomboy Samantha, as she flies with Eagle across an American river valley in his hang glider–to avoid betrothal to his father. Meet Ben Franklin, H.G.Wells, and Amelia Earhart with a little romance thrown in.
Though I find myself hanging in there with the housework, even though I have loads of writing and editing to do everyday, I’d rather get my readers interested in how my writing life is going–what I’m learning–than talking about household organization, no matter how important that is.
So, here goes my umteenth incarnation as a blogger:
Right now, I’m hoping I hear something from the agents and editors I pitched to at RWA Nationals, that is, before I self-publish the two novels in my Ages of Invention Series.
Have all the covers for the two novels ready to go. I just need to start handing out advanced reader copies for review.
And I’m anxious to finish my WIP space opera, to get to working on a young adult science fiction novella.
I’ve never enjoyed history more than that in the novels of my critique partners, and because of my background in science, I’d like to learn as much as I can about the way people thought about science throughout history. That’s what led to the writing of my historical science fictions.
The Union of Opposites website (theunionofopposites.com) explores different kinds of consciousness that I use in my stories. The site is philosophical and built on my published experiments, but it helps me create a new world of thought for my future novels.
LOVE ME, BITE ME, the second book in the LEGENDS OF THE GOLDENS SERIES is in PRE-ORDER for 99 cents at Amazon. It’s the continuing story of Chastity (from A FAR FAR BETTER THING free on Kindle and Nook), the human/Golden hybrid that has the Golden community on edge. She’s fallen for her high school quarterback, who has decided to become officially changed into a vampire at San Diego’s Comic-Con. If she bonds with him before that, she might save his soul, but poor Chastity doesn’t even know how to kiss. So she finds a Zander of the future to practice bond on. Unfortunately practice Zander falls for her and has to compete with her real Zander of his past.
Chastity also appears in subsequent books in the series published by Soul Mate: FORBIDDEN PLAYGROUND and DANCING DRAGONS. She’s the wise Golden elder aunt to her nieces and nephews, the main characters in those books. And she appears prominently with Zander in DANCING DRAGONS.
A FAR FAR BETTER THING prequel novella to the offbeat and quirky LEGENDS OF THE GOLDENS SERIES of sci-fi, paranormal psychic romances continues to be downloaded and in Amazon’s Best Seller Ranking for several months.
FREE: Please download this introduction to the series where the first Golden/human hybrid, Chastity, is naturally born and creates havoc within the Golden community.
