A blog about our adventures becoming a published Indie Authors. Here you will find advice, humor, and stories about what we've learned on our journey, along with books reviews, as well as great advice from other authors we've met on our journey. It's a long road, but the things you'll see and experience along the way can be very interesting.
Is there a lover of the paranormal or science fiction in your life? Wondering what you might get them for a gift this year? Well then here's a deal you won't want to pass up!
Starting now and ending at midnight on November 30th, all three books in the Para-Earth Series are just $1.49 (1/2 off the regular price of $2.99). That's right, you can now get all three books for yourself, or for someone's stocking, for less than $5.00!
And remember the Para-Earth Series has something for everyone:
Ghosts, psychics, vampyres, shamans, parallel realities, mystery, love, suspense, humor, action, suspense... in short, the WORKS!
Each novel has earned 4 and 5 star reviews! Not bad for a series that is still growing. Each story stands on its own, but is also part of an ever growing story arc.
-It all begins with "The Bridge" where a stone bridge built in the 1700's is haunted by the mysterious White Lady, who supposedly seeks the baby she lost. But in reality she is also trying to warn others of the terrifying secret that lies hidden within the bridge itself.
-The adventures continue in "The Ship" where we find Cassandra Elliott and Julie Cloudfoot, having just survived the terrifying encounter at the bridge, now find themselves facing a living ghost ship which has designs on the psychically endowed Cassandra its new navigator.
-"The Vampyre Blogs - Coming Home" introduces a whole new cast of characters which includes Nathan Steward, the last surviving soldier of the Civil War, who's extended lifespan comes from his terrifying encounter with in a Para-Earth where he encountered life forms that defied description. Only now one of those beings has found its way into this world, and Nathan is the only force who can stop it. But to do so may cost him dearly. For if he fails, it will not only mean losing his own life, but the lives the of those whose families he has watched over for the last 150 years.
Like Terry Pratchett's Discworld, all the stories in my series take place in the same universe. And with time, many of the characters will meet and encounter new threats as well as finding themselves having new adventures together. Two new books are scheduled to be added to the series next year, so dive in now because the wonders and adventures are just beginning.
Plus, if you order through Amazon or Barnes and Noble, you can not only gift any/all of these books to someone, you can also schedule what day you want the book(s) to arrive, like maybe Christmas Day or during Hannukah? Or maybe someone has a birthday coming up, you can take care of that shopping now and know it will arrive on the right day.

Recently there's been a lot of discussion of Amazon Kindle's latest program... "Kindle Unlimited". Now for those of you have heard but don't know a lot about it, here's a quick recap in a nutshell. *Remember: this is only a brief overview and not an in-depth piece. I understand there are still some details to be ironed out* With Kindle Unlimited, you pay $9.99 a month to have unlimited access to Kindle books through Amazon. You don't have to 'buy' the books, you simply have access to them. Sort of like a private library that you pay a monthly fee to have access to. Now considering there are literally thousands of books on Kindle this is a pretty good deal for consumers. You can sample and read any the books and decide if you actually want to purchase a copy for yourself in e-book or maybe go for an actual print copy, without wondering whether or not the book is to your taste. So on the surface, this sounds pretty good right? So how do
Hello everyone. I had been planning and hoping to start out this blog post with me being all... But then Monday happened, and I wound up feeling like... Here's what's been happening around here for the last few months (well more like for the last year). You see, part of the reason (well a very big reason actually) why I haven't been posting a lot in the last year is because I developed some health issues. Nothing life-threatening, mind you, but life altering. Keeping a long story short, as of May I had to leave my job at the county of Santa Cruz and take Disability Retirement. Now this whole process has been ongoing since September of last year and now it's officially a year later, come to think of it. But throughout that time, I had a lot of doctor appointments, as well as dealing with a lot of stressful paperwork, which included short-term disability (which will be coming to an end this month). During my last meeting with my doctor, she noted my condition that led t
Me this morning when I opened this blog. We had hit over... Honestly, when this blog started back in 2010, I really had no idea what the hell I was doing. I only had the smallest inkling of what I wanted to say about books, writing, characters, voices, point of views, plot, setting, etc. But thanks to all of you and your continued support, I found my way. And after Helen joined me on the blog, things really took off thanks to her and all of you. And now, here we are at a number I never dreamed possible. Honestly, I'm so giddy right now I don't know what to do... Good advice. Thanks Loki. In the meantime, I want to say that I know I haven't been as active this year, mostly due to health and family issues. And unfortunately, those health issues are still ongoing. But I will try to bring you all more content soon, as well as a major announcement or two hopefully coming in the next two months. So, please bear with me, and continue to visit us. We love seeing you and hearing f
