Ah, here I am again.  Something new today, but first, a link from our sponsor!


OK, let’s see.  Renegades went live Thursday and the internet went dead Friday.  I’m sure it didn’t help my numbers.  PS – it’s 99¢ until Monday.  Link later.  Right now, a few lines from a new and unrelated Untitled Sci-fi Project.  There are hints of inter-dimensional travel, an apocalypse, and even a bit of romance.  This is the (rough draft) opening, setting things up for some action that happens soon.

The brown-out rolled across the west side of the city, dimming lights, shutting down air conditioning units, and snarling traffic as the signals went to blinking yellow in caution mode. It was August, and the season was the second hottest on record.

Kai sat up in bed, listening. City noises drifted up in the stifled air, angry and anxious. She knew it was futile to think she might go back to sleep, and got up, groggy. Her team had been back in the state two days – or was it three now? A nasty bug had gotten hold of her en route, but she’d managed to get through Military Customs. All of them were on heavy doses of antibiotics for the next week. Then the team had scattered to their various places of refuge. Except, of course, those that couldn’t travel because they were sick.

Book 3 of The Wildblood series is also in pre-production stages.  All of my eBooks are available in paperback.  Hmmm, what else?  Oh, promo for Renegades of course.

Have a great week!

Uncontrollable.  Unpredictable.  Dangerous.  The Wildblood.
Now, Team Three know what they are.
Renegades: Book 2 of The Wildblood


99¢ this week!

Renegades: Book 2 of The Wildblood takes up with Team Three out among clans of the Altered, and cities where civilization has held ground. Their efforts to establish The Vista’s domain create unique conflicts and forge unexpected allies. One of the most pressing obstacle turns out to be their own governing council, a threat as real and dangerous as the nomads of the outlands.


The Wildblood Series

No one remembers what started the war, the big one. It happened too fast, and there were too many lies, for the truth to be known. Civilization stopped, and what came next was fueled by rage and fear.

The Wildblood Series

No one remembers what started the war, the big one. It happened too fast, and there were too many lies, for the truth to be known. Civilization stopped, and what came next was fueled by rage and fear.
Twenty years on, a tiny refuge, a place called The Vista, may be one of the last vestiges of humanity. Isolated, guarded, and hiding a dark secret, the people have survived World War Last, and they are content with that. Their children, however, are not. The search for others will send them out into a world they know nothing about, where the line between enemy and ally is blurred. The war may not be over.

OK, my stuff.  My characters don’t get much private time, and when they do, things can get interesting.  Shannon and Hunter get a brief respite from their routine.  They’ve been contemplating a change in their relationship for months.  Of course, nothing is ever simple.

“You don’t owe me an explanation, Hunter. We’re different, we’re always going to be different, and the choices we make sometimes hurt.”

I was going to say, I’ve thought about it, and I don’t just give up and walk away.”

She didn’t understand, a brief shrug indicating he’d lost her. “You didn’t have to stay here with me, you know, the other side of the duplex is ten feet away.”

When we were all back in Cody, I told Mac I wouldn’t add complications to your life, until we’d taken care of the problem. It surprised me when you showed up here unannounced. The point is, if you’re willing, I’m willing – let’s see where this goes.”

Are we talking about sex?”

I am.”

The good news is – Renegades: Book 2 of The Wildblood is available for pre-order at Amazon, and will be released on Oct. 20.  Of this year!  Other ebook formats will be available the same day, and a paperback edition as soon as I can manage to deal with the formatting.  Reserve one now, if you’d like.


Other books in the series can be found at my website – http://www.topaz08.com

And It’s Sunday

I missed my weekend post, having gotten my hands on the next-to-the-last edit of Renegades.  So, if anyone is interested in helping me launch this baby, email me. Blog posts, Twitter posts, FB, you know what I mean. If you’d be interested in reviewing either The Vista or Renegades, let me know and I can send you an eArc. They are books 1 & 2 of a post-apocalyptic, action-adventure series.

Marketing is still a mystery to me. Helpful suggestions are always appreciated!

I’m also kicking my newsletter into gear. If you’re interested. I won’t resort to bribery, not yet.😉

Have a peaceful, productive weekend. I should be back next week with a snippet. From which book, that remains to be seen.
