Trailer Time!

It’s the second release day for Widows of the Sun-Moon, and you know what that means!

Trailer time!

And here’s the link.

Widows Of the Sun-Moon 300 DPI

Widows of the Sun-Moon is now live wherever books are sold AND on the BSB site!

Blurb:

Naos is bored. Alone in space, life should be idyllic. No more random thoughts intruding on her brain; no bodies clogging her senses. But what is there to do besides stare at the planet below and wonder what it would feel like to be Calamity’s only god?

War between the other gods shouldn’t be too hard to start. The Storm Lord has a bad temper, and after being abandoned by Simon Lazlo, source of immortality, he’s easy to provoke. And the Sun-Moon live closely with Calamity’s plains-dwelling people and their new neighbors, a pack of humans and aliens led by the intriguing ex-soldier Cordelia Ross. With a plague ravaging their numbers, it will be easy to set them at each other’s throats.

A little war, a bit of death, and the chance to be Calamity’s only deity? It’s a game to keep even the most fickle goddess entertained.

I hope you love it as much as I do. Or else…BOOM!

 

Happy Release Day!

Very Sharp Teeth

Paladins of the Storm Lord 300 DPICome see me at the Bold Strokes Author’s blog where I’m talking about how I came up with the aliens at the heart of Paladins of the Storm Lord! Hint, it has to do with sharp teeth. 🙂

It’s time for Paladins of the Storm Lord! *Kermit flail*

Books, books, books!

Books, books, books!

Blurb for ya:

Surrounded by dead crewmates, marooned above an unknown planet, the bridge crew of the Atlas awakens from a crash with extraordinary mental abilities. When their most powerful member jettisons their passengers to the planet below, they have an unprecedented opportunity: they can become gods.

Two hundred years later, Lieutenant Cordelia Ross is a paladin serving the Storm Lord, her city’s patron deity. Her faith is absolute until her people are attacked by a native species, harmless creatures turned devious by an unknown hand. Cordelia tries to solve the mystery of their development before they kill anyone else, but the secrets surrounding them are too deep. As orders from the Storm Lord begin to value obedience over integrity, Cordelia wonders whose side her god is really on.

Just in case you really want to know what the book is about, here’s the blurb:

Like heroes from an ancient tale, Aesa and Maeve plan to raid foreign shores, claiming gold and glory for their homeland. Young and in love, neither considers what will happen if one is chosen to be a warrior and the other is left behind.

On a mist-shrouded island, Aesa meets Ell, a woman enslaved by an insidious curse. Maeve walks the path of dark magic and finds Laret, a woman well acquainted with pain. Together, they must break the magic surrounding Ell, an act that will force them to choose between their dreams, their homes, and the women they love

It features lesbian romance and a trans character, and I hope you love it as much as I do. ❤
