You've asked and I'm answering!

Many people have asked about the time line of the Elyrian Brides Series.  As you, dear reader, may have noticed the time lines jump around from time to time. Blame my muse. She gives me these stories in order for the most part.  But every now and again a story will pop up out of order.

I wrote Octavia's story first.  By the time we join Octavia, the Elyrians have been walking around on Earth several months.  However, I wrote and published Tawnya's first story last year.  Tawnya's story takes place a few weeks after the governments of Earth reveal the presence of the Elyrians and their purpose for being there. Tawnya's first story is a short and her full length story is book seven in the series.

What can I do but say my muse jumps around a bit and apologize for the little trickster.  Though she is unrepentant. *smh*  And if the story that's percolating in my brain is any indication, I am imagining that the stories will jump around a bit more.

So for those dear readers who would like to know the linear time line of the Elyrian Brides Series, below is a time line.  The stories that are happening simultaneously or overlapping are on the same levels.  Going forward I will include the updated time line in each addition to the series.


Thank you all for your continued support and patronage!

No matter what you are reading, HAPPY READING!

This is what had happened...

So a funny thing happened on the way to announcing that Elyrian Brides X: Athena The Lioness Trainer is live on 08.28.2014. Okay maybe not so much funny as just me being uber busy.  I know. How do you forget to announce your book on your own blog?  I don't know.  My apologies.  Really, I am sorry.

But it is live!  And here is the love cover art once again done by KiraTheArtist.  Link to buy is HERE!


As always, it was fun doing it. Really it was.  If it wasn't fun writing out these stories then I wouldn't do it.  One of the reasons I was so distracted was that I got the artwork for Stormy Reddick's first novel Secrets of An American Ghetto.  I'm really excited about getting that out, too.

Whew!  So much to do and only so many hours in a day to do in all in.  But I enjoy it and appreciate being able to share my stories with people.

Thank you for your kind support and happy reading!

Noble Truths is now LIVE!

Howdy!  Hi! And how ya doing?

Well another book has gone live!  *does a little office chair ballet*  Noble Truths is the fourth and final installment in the Chronicles of Callandaria Volume 1.  We pick up with our adventurers to mete out a bit of justice and heal some wounds.  Also, learn a bit more about the past, the present, and the future of Callandaria. *smiles*

I’m happy with the outcome of this part of the Chronicles.  I’ll be taking a break from the telling of the story to work on some other stories.  Don’t worry, I’ll get back to them.  There are more stories to tell and more conspiracies to uncover.

Here is the wonderful cover.  I decided to go with a real live model this time.  I think it is awesome.



The link to buy is HERE.

I am still working on plot bunnies, aka story ideas.  That is why I haven't done a #RatchetStoryHour in a few weeks.  I want to get back to that.  I want to know what happens to Booty’s charges.  And what is up with the Snitching fairy? *chuckling*  I don’t look at the recap until fifteen minutes before I get on Twitter so whatever comes out of my fingers is fresh.  I want to get back to the fairies’ majical shenanigans.  Hopefully, I’ll finish getting some of the story ideas sorted out soon so I can get back to it.

So that’s writing tricks!  Thank you so much for your continued support and encouragement!  It is truly appreciated.

Now I’m off to write some more… or drink coffee and write.


Happy reading!

Elyrian Brides: Minx is now available on Amazon.com!

Well, she’s live!  I mean that truly.  Minx is L-I-V-E!  She took me on some twists and turns to get to the last page of the story.  I kept looking at the words on the screen like, Minx…you…you… I want to be you when I grow up! *chuckling*

As always, I enjoyed telling her story.  Here is the cover by a wonderful young artist I found on DeviantArt.com who goes by the screen name BabyButta.  You can check out her page HERE.
Here’s the cover.



Here’s the LINK to purchase the book.  If you’re ever looking for me on DeviantArt my screen name is STReddick.  Check out some of my favorite artists and pictures.

I’ve missed the past couple of weeks’ #RatchetStoryHour due to multiple plots running around in my head.  I’m plotting what I’ll be publishing in 2015.  My muse just keeps my mind busy.  I’m so glad I have people to share the stories with.

Thank you all again for reading and enjoying my stories.  No matter what you’re reading, happy reading!

Elyrian Brides VIII (8): Sancecrea the Draconess is live!

And it actually went live on May 28th.  I announced on Facebook, Twitter, and DeviantArt.  I have no idea how I could have been remiss in announcing it here of all places!  My apologies!  Here is the cover done by the wonderfully talented KiraTheArtist.


*chuckles* Crea is kinda sorta coming into her own or at least trying to in this book. She's bringing a little hood to Elyria. As always I enjoyed writing it and hope you'll enjoy reading it.  Here is the link to purchase Elyrian Brides VIII (8).

And that is tricks for now. Take care and happy reading!

A creative thing happened on my way through the 30 blog post challenge.

So I just realized that I haven’t done an actual blog in a while.  Remember that whole thirty blogs in thirty days? *chuckling*  To be fair I said I’d try one a month.  Then creativity hit me and I’ve just been writing and writing and writing and writing… and well, you get the idea.  Any hoodles, I thought I’d take on the next topic on the list.

Where would you like to be in 10 years?

That is so simple.

On a beautiful tropical island that is well shielded from most if not all tropical storms.  I want to be surrounded by a bevy of cabana boys and friends.  My family can come down on the holidays by invitation only.

*imagines hearing crickets while I’m silently judged*

You cannot judge me until you’ve met ALL my family.  There are a few that can come down whenever they choose.  Then there’s one member of the family who I need some warning when they are coming so I can put away my valuables.  Don’t look at me like that.  Most families have one family member who is sticky fingered.  I still love them but I love my sparkly stuff and small electronics, too.  Just best to remove the temptation from them to keep the family peace.

So yeah, that’s where I’d like to be in ten years and with whom.  Feel free to drop me a comment on where you’d like to be in ten years.

Stolen Elyrian Brides: Honey IS LIVE ON AMAZON.COM!!!!!

I promised myself I wouldn’t drop the ball this time by not announcing on the blog. *cheesy grin*

So here is my newest book just dropped today.  The cover art was done by another artist I found at DeviantArt who goes by the name of BabyButta.  Didn’t she do a fabulous job?


 Link to buy is HERE.

Stolen Elyrian Brides: Honey takes up the story of what happened to the women who were kidnapped from Earth.  It was fun as the heroine, Honey Love, is used to being the boss.  She ends up on a world where the men are the bosses and women have to simper their way to getting their way.  It is NOT how Honey is used to doing things.  It was interesting getting into her head.  Then getting into her heart.

The hero Gadden didn’t give me any trouble getting into his heart.  It was love at first sight for him.  It was interesting finding his soft side.  He doesn’t show it much.  You can blame his dad for that.

Oooooh! Have you ever wanted your very own Elyrian Brides tee?  Or an Ascension Earth Series tee?  Well, take a gander to your right and you'll see the link to my Zazzle store selling tees and baseball caps and soon more.

Told you I stay busy.  So that is tricks for now.  Now let me get back to these edits.  I’ve got a busy year ahead of me.

As always, thank you all for reading and enjoying my stories.  Have a great day and HAPPY READING!
