Reaper as an audiobook???

June 25, 2013 at 7:40 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I have to ask…

…would it be a wise move to create audiobook versions of my Reaper Series and  Shades of Grey Series?

Hmmmm………

Very tempting.

Especially since my boyfriend is an audio whiz…..

Any feedback would be appreciated!

*Reaper VIII and Shades of Grey IV in progress, approx. 75% done!*

Sincere regards & happy reading,

So…

…….after a lengthy wait, I have, for your reading pleasure, edited and released Reaper VII: Soul Talker, the next installment in my Reaper Series following the adventures of nephalim vigilante Samantha Bennet!

At 61, 800 words, this is a bit longer than most volumes in my Reaper Series, which i think is what a lot of my readers were hoping for.

Currently, this novel is available only on Kindle from Amazon (amazon.co.uk, amazon.ca, amazon.com, amazon.de, et al) — however, in 90 days’ time, i will be making it available via Smashwords, who distributes to Apple and other platforms.

I hope that you enjoy this one!

I had a lot of fun sorting out ways to ruin Samantha’s life… but also, to place a dim flickering light at the end of the tunnel, in the form of a new, powerful and resourceful ally!

Sincere regards and happy reading!

Reaper VII: Soultalker in final revisions this week!

February 3, 2013 at 10:32 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So…

…….my sincere apologies for my long and recent silence.

I really have no good excuses.

If I can find the time to facebook images of Tardar Sauce AKA Grumpy Cat, surely i could have found time to both edit my damned revisions and update my WordPress Blog?!?!?!?!

I feel like I have abandoned my small but loyal following.

For that, I make this heartfelt apology and this pledge!

For the past few days, I have been working near-relentlessly on my edit for Reaper VII: Soultalker.

In this most recent installment of my Reaper Series, bad things happen to Samantha Bennet. Good things happen, too.

But then, terrible things happen. A brush with certain death. Injuries beyond repair. A high-stakes gamble, in which she loses her way of life.

Heartbreak… Helplessness… A lonely path…

Then, new hope in a new ally… yet, the dark days of prophecy loom ever present on the horizon.

And I leave you with the introduction of a duo of ruthless characters who’ve seen their share of nightmares and who seem best suited to aid Reaper in sorting out some of the wetworks in hers.

Cannot guarantee WHEN this installment will be done, as 77 pages is now 164 (Word doc, single space) and 38k words have kind of blossomed into 60K….

As soon as I am finished with her, I will upload to Amazon for your reading pleasure!

Same goes for Reaper VII (Title, as yet, undecided).

A lot of adventures in store for Miss Samantha Bennet yet.

A lot of ups & downs.

Some of them in bed… 😉

Happy reading!

Putting the polish on Shades of Grey III: See No Evil

August 4, 2012 at 3:25 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So…

……I’m gonna keep this briefer than usual. (Is briefer a word? lol Perhaps “more brief than usual” is more fitting).

ATM (at the moment) I am putting the finishing touches on Shades of Grey III: See No Evil.

This is following a jam-packed day of actually finishing the book, paying bills, house work, supping with an old pal, having a nap (still a lil backwards from night shifts lol) and brewing some fresh java.

Gonna stay in night shift mode since I go back to them tomorrow night @ 2230.

Anyway: you will be able to find Shades of Grey III: See No Evil on Smashwords and Amazon within the next 24 – 36 hours!

Sincere regards and happy reading!

99 cent eBooks to attract readers….

December 19, 2011 at 7:12 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So…

……I have reset the price of my eBooks ata Amazon.com to $0.99 USD.

This is so that my titles will be more marketable – maybe i can gain more a readership this way?

That is my hope.

It was a questions of smaller numbers of sales with larger royalties or larger numbers of sales with smaller royalties, and STILL trying to build up a readership for my Shades of Grey series of books.

Plus, at $0.99, I think it will attract a lot more readers willing to give me “Uknoan Author” a try.

Here’s to trying!

Sincere regards and Happy Reading!

Shades of Grey: Hear No Evil Kindle eBook available now!

December 13, 2011 at 11:25 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Shades of Grey: Hear No Evil Kindle eBook available now!

Book Two in the Shades of Grey Series

When Crystal Grey, a teenager with dark secrets, disappears from her Vancouver home, her family is tormented by questions:

Where has Crystal gone?
Why hasn’t she returned?
Who is she with?
What is she doing?
Why did she leave?
When is she coming back?

Involved in the drug trade and running with a fast crowd, Crystal is now being exploited by some very sinister people – facts that the Vancouver Police Department are reluctant to reveal to her family.

Her sister, Eve, refuses to sit idly by and watch her sister become some kind of statistic. However, the strain of the situation is taking its toll…

You see, Eve has a few dark secrets of her own.

Secrets from the past, secrets born of madness and violence that whisper seductively to Eve in waking and in dream, calling her to action, calling her to punish the people who have hurt her baby sister, who are using her for their own criminal gain.

These nightmarish voices, thought to have been silenced by a team of mental health professionals years before, seem as though they are back and more vicious than ever before.

Will Eve give in to their siren song and take justice into her own hands? Even if it’s at the cost of her very sanity?

This anger inside of her is so wrathful, so unnatural, so all-consuming, so…hungry.

Sometimes, she just doesn’t feel like herself…

….sometimes, it’s as if she doesn’t feel human at all…

Look for Book Three ~ Shades of Grey: See No Evil in January/February of 2012

The Shades of Grey Series:

Shades of Grey: Prologue (November 2011)
Shades of Grey: Hear No Evil (December 2011)
Shades of Grey: See No Evil (January/February 2012)
Shades of Grey: Speak No Evil (February/March 2012)
Shades of Grey: Epilogue (March/April 2012)
