Figor, Book One

Release Date: 15 Nov 2018

It’s 2096, Earth is relatively new to the intragalactic game, and 18-year-old Earthen Hugh MacGivens thinks he’s going to spend a few months on a distant world with his ambassador parents. Instead, he steps onto the planet to find he’s Earth’s selection for solidifying an alliance with the genderless people of Figor—by mating with a local.

Trend a’Bahn is ready for xys life to begin. Xe wants to gain an apprenticeship to a master builder and find xys mate in claiming season. Never would xe have expected an attraction to an offworlder.

While the two navigate claiming season, an undercurrent in Figor emerges. They don’t like anything non-Figorian and they hate what Hugh represents. As peaceful as Figorians are, a fire has been lit. If their beloved Empeer won’t stop such a mating from occurring, they will take care of it themselves.

Hugh came to Figor for a few months and possibly the rest of his life. If they have their say, his life ends now.

Just a little energy work for #8sunday #YA #metaphysics #fantasy

Hello Weekend Writing Warriors 🙂 As usual,it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. But I thought I’d share a bit from my young adult fantasy/metaphysical novel: Tryad.

*****

“Kaylee Marin Stephens! Get down from there!” my mother hissed, standing in that pose mothers the world over had perfected. Feet spread more than shoulder-width apart, partially bent forward, with her hands on her abundant hips, Mom looked more like a general berating her troops than a mother trying to get her daughter down from the roof.

With a loud sigh, I closed my eyes and imagined myself standing in front of her. The moment my toes sunk into the grass, she hissed again. “Go to your room. When your father comes home, I’m going to send him up to deal with you. Just because they taught you that you could do anything does not mean you should levitate anywhere you please.”

Your Dimension or Mine ? #6BestHop #fantasy #magic #metaphysical #romance

Your Dimension or Mine

Hi Everyone 🙂 I keep forgetting to sign up for bloghops. So I figured I’d try the Sundays’ Six of the Best where authors post 6 paragraphs of their work.

This snippet is from the very beginning of Your Dimension or Mine?

~~~

“…and of course there is the effect on the economy…”

Sighing, Ari blinked her eyes and stared at the man seated directly across from her. He was still talking. And eating. From the moment they were seated at the private table for two in the neighborhood’s newest restaurant, Jay had been stuffing his face. Or talking. Sometimes he attempted multi-tasking and did them both at the same time. When that happened, Ari wanted to ask their waiter for a splatter guard but worried it would come across as rude.

“These damned politicians just don’t know anything,” he finished his newest rant, taking a big gulp of wine before letting out a belch.

If only Ma Nature would choose this moment to send a tsunami our way, she thought. Of course, the possibility of that happening was less than zero. The closest they got were flash floods in August. It was January.

“Have you noticed the price of gas?” Jay asked, munching on a breadstick as the waiter removed his salad plate and replaced it with a large bowl of soup. Without waiting for her to acknowledge his question, he launched into a diatribe about fixing prices and the state of pigs…or at least that was what she thought he said.

Letting her mind drift, Ari tried to remember why she accepted this date in the first place. Oh, that’s right—her sister Jane set it up without asking. Well, it wasn’t the first time. Ever since she entered college, Jane had taken it upon herself to introduce her little sister to men just like her husband Tony.

Your Dimension or Mine?

Published:

When Ari Reynolds signed up for an online dating service, she only did it to get her sister off her back about her dateless life. She never expected to be contacted by men from other dimensions or have a demon claim ownership of her through a magical DNA contract. Now that her eyes are open, she is catapulted to Dimension Zeta. There, a powerful Fae named Mayir trains her to defend herself against the mysterious Orion.

Even more confusing, she finds herself falling for Terrian, a man from an entirely different dimension. Terrian promises to help defend her, but when Orion steals something of great importance to her, she must stand alone against him. Can a mere human fight off the magical control of an immortal being who wants her more than anything?

A sixty-eight #8sunday #ya #metaphysical #romance #humor #paranormal #wewriwa

Hello Weekend Writing Warriors 🙂

I keep forgetting to sign up. Whoops! Anyway, thought I would give you a snippet from Tryad, my young adult metaphysical romance that came out the end of last year. Here, Kaylee is introduced to, well…Heath’s pride and joy. If she can only figure out why.

~ ~ ~

 

“Shall we go?”
Nodding, I walked out, closing the door behind me and followed him down our drive to an old black car with a really loud muffler. “What is it?” I asked Vane.

“A sixty-eight. Heath built it from the ground up. It’s his baby.” Vane opened up the passenger door and pulled the front seat forward for me, obviously assuming I would know what a sixty-eight was. I climbed into the back of the rumbling car, feeling a bit trapped, and yet not about to admit I had no idea.

Now off you go to read some amazing snippets from even more amazing authors. 🙂

4 star review of L’Amore Perfetto

L’Amore Perfetto has been out for several years but I’m excited to say it just received a 4-star review from Angela from Crystal’s Many Reviewers.

As an author, I focus so much on my works in progress and new books that at times, the oldest backlist gets forgotten. I’m pleased to say this one hasn’t been. It was my first published romance and I do adore these characters.

Check out Angela’s review.
