A day late but better late than never.

Another story is on the shelves so to speak. Elyrian Husbands went live this morning after a minor snafu on my end yesterday. *feels judging eyes* What? No one is perfect. I was just excited to be back on schedule. So maybe I should have stuck around until Amazon said that there were no errors before I closed my browser. I live and learn.

Here is the cute cover.


The link to by is HERE! *relieved sigh*

So that leaves Octavia's Reign to hit the shelves and I'm back on schedule.  Whoo hoo!  So I'll soon have publishing dates for Minxy Choices and Courted II.  I can't wait to get those in your hands.

I'm participating in #CampNaNoWritMo in April.  For those not in the know, it is an e-camp for writers to challenge themselves to write a novel in a month.  I've already got the title, synopsis, and started working on it.  It is Elyrian Brides: Mimi (title is subject to change).  Here is the synopsis:
Synopsis:
Mimi Tremont is in training to be a world class jewel thief. She's smart, classy, and full of that certain something that immediately catches a certain vexing Elyrian male's attention. But Vex has nothing that Mimi is interested in stealing or does he?

Vex has arrived on Earth and spies something strange. A feminine silhouette slinking around corners and scaling not so small buildings. He's intrigued with what he is sure is his imagination. He's both love and sex starved and he's sure his mind is playing tricks on him. Upon closer investigation he finds Mimi doing what Mimi wants to do best. Steal. Now if only he can get her to see the value in stealing his heart.
Vex is going to drive Mimi crazy. *chuckles* He's just terrible. *chuckling harder* Wish me luck on my challenge.

Then if that isn't enough, I've got a new story idea I'm working on that I'm trying to keep mum about. I'm terrible at keeping secrets.  It is really a tantalizing idea. I haven't written a word yet which is why I'm keeping mum. But the scenes are shaping up nicely that I can see.  Here's hoping I'll have something new for you to fall in love with by 2016.

And for those wondering, Stormy hasn't forgotten she owes you three books. The technological clean up on those is coming along nicely and I hope - uh - she hopes to have them out this year, too.

OHOHOHOHOHOHOHOH! TOMORROW STARTS MY CONTEST!!!!

Yep!  I've been a published teller of stories for three years now! Time to celebrate with gifts for you kind and faithful readers. Contest rules and questions to be posted this week. I hope you are all caught up on your Elyrian Brides facts.  You're going to need them this year.  I've posted a few of the prizes up for grabs on my facebook page HERE.

So that is tricks for now.  Thank you all for your continued support!  And no matter what you're reading, HAPPY READING!

Of Guardians, Gods, and Goddesses is LIVE!

Hello!
Hello!
Hello!
Hello!
Hello!
Hello!

What?  I’m excited!  I got the technical glitches worked out, I’m back on the publishing trail, and I’m enjoying it!

In case you missed it yesterday, Of Guardians, Gods, and Goddesses went live on Amazon.com yesterday!  Woooo hooo!  Here is the beautiful cover done by KiratheArtist!
  


The buy link is HERE!

I know I’ve said it before but I really want to thank everyone for being patient with me while I worked out the technical issues.  I appreciate your patience, patronage, and encouragement.  I even appreciate the prodding.  It is cold and flu season here, too.  A cold always makes me drag my butt for a few days.  So I had a few days when signing into Facebook and seeing the message “Where’s my book?” or my favorite “Give me what I want!” made me chuckle before opening my laptop and getting back to work.

You all are truly awesome and I am really grateful to finally have something to contribute to my community.

Most of my life I have tried one creative thing after another trying to find something to contribute to the community of mankind.  Seriously, I’ve tried pottery, sewing, knitting, and even calligraphy.  I was actually pretty good at calligraphy.  Pottery and sewing?  Eh!  One day I’ll post pictures of my finished products that will show why I gave them up.  Though it was fun trying.  Knitting?  *LOL*  Seriously laughing out loud.  My poor knitting teacher.  She stood over me, giving me step-by-step instructions that I followed to the letter.  So tell me why every time I held up my yarn everything unraveled?  She was in a quandary.  I remember vividly her saying, “I don’t understand why it’s not staying together.”

Meanwhile, I was doodling little stories and pieces of stories and tossing them in a file cabinet.  It isn’t that I didn’t think story telling wasn’t a worthy contribution.  It’s just that my stories were so different from what I was finding on library and bookstore shelves.  I thought I’d be the only one entertained by my stories.  That’s why I am so grateful and thankful to find that there are others who enjoy my stories just as much as I do.

So if I seem gushy with the thanks, it is because I am really happy to have people to share them with and I appreciate each and every one of you.

Okay.  Enough with the mushy stuff.  Keep an eye out for Elyrian Husbands coming March 30, 2015. 

Oh!  And I’m or rather Stormy Reddick is still working through the technical issues with Black Silk and Silken Death.  I’ll keep you all posted!

So that’s tricks.  Wishing you a great day and, no matter what you’re reading HAPPY READING!!!!

"…and the technology gurus fixed all that shall be fixed and there was peace in Sunshine's life once again."

Well the holidays are officially over.  Booooooooooo!

However, I am back with the new publishing schedule. Yayyyyyyyyy!

I just want to say thank you to all of you for bearing with me while I worked out the technical issues.  Technology is grand when it works.  I just concentrate on how often and well it does work and shrug off the glitches.

So without further ado here it is!

March 2, 2015 Of Guardians, Gods, and Goddesses
Book three of the Ascension Earth series finds us back with Earth's guardians as Death begins the next step of Calypso’s plan.  Unbeknownst to her, he no longer has what she wants but he knows who has it.  He just has to find him and get it back.  That task, however, is not going to be as easy as he thought.

March 30, 2015        Elyrian Husbands
Kellat, Forin, Itaz, and Noom have been banished to Earth to find wives for themselves or spend the next two years trying. All four men are accustomed to doing things as a group on Elyria.  They soon find on Earth that they will have to do things differently.

April 27, 2015  Octavia’s Reign
Being a protector of Earth and Elyria is now part of her life whether she wants it or not. For the record, the Elyrians’ and the Axyslions’ combined technologies make it pretty easy.  They all know what they are supposed to do and how to do it for the most part.  What they don’t know they sit down and cooperate with each other until they find a way to make it happen. Octavia doesn’t have to do much more than let Kade make love to her and act as an ambassador of goodwill with the Axyslions.  There is the rub.  Not all the Axyslions have goodwill on the mind.

Also coming up this year but publishing dates haven’t been set yet:

Elyrian Brides: Minxy Choices
Elyrian Brides Courted II: Babs, Jill, Sharon, & Tracy

Stay tuned for more information as things get finalized on my end.

I’m also tooling around with my little fairy, Shawntiqua.  I left her and Booty on a cliffhanger and I really want to get back to what those two are up to.  Hopefully, once all the rest of my publishing dates get set for the year I’ll have more of their story.

That is tricks for now.  Take care and no matter what you are reading, happy reading!

Technical difficulties...

Technical difficulties suck at any time. There is no such thing as a good time for them.  They just show up at the worst times.

Ugh! I've been super quiet lately because I've been dealing with some of my own and working like crazy to keep it from interfering with my publishing schedule. I really have!  But it is with a sad heart that I have to announce that despite my best efforts I have to postpone the publishing of the remaining books on my schedule for this year.

Yeah.  I know.  I'm really disappointed too.  I've already posted the cover for OF GUARDIANS, GODS, AND GODDESSES.  But it can't be helped.

Hang in there with me folks and I'll keep you posted on the new publishing dates as each snafu gets fixed.

Thank you again for your support and patience *eyeing Barbara and Monique* while I work out these little kinks.

No matter what you're reading, HAPPY READING!

AAAAAAAAND ELYRIAN BRIDES COURTED IS LIVE!

*chuckling* Well, another story is live on Amazon.com for your reading pleasure.

Elyrian Brides Courted takes place on Elyria. The Elyrians' secrets are out and more women are headed there every day. We get to meet four women who decide to take a chance on romance in the stars to see if all the hullabaloo is even real.  Well three out of the four do.  Meet Babs, Jill, Sharon, & Tracy and see how they begin their journey from Earth to Elyria and how they go about making the choice of a husband from twelve eligible Elyrian bachelors.



The link to purchase is HERE.

As always, it was a sincere pleasure and joy to write it and I hope you will enjoy reading it. Thank you for your continued support of my missives.

Just a reminder, next month my alter ego, Stormy Reddick, will make her debut with Secrets of An American Ghetto. It is a very dark tale full of grisly murders, power struggles, and something else that I will leave readers to discover for themselves.

And there will be another story in the Ascension Earth series published next month. Time for Calypso to get what she wants. *waggles eyebrows* And maybe a few things she didn't want, too.

That's writing tricks with me. Have a great day!  And as always, no matter what you're reading, HAPPY READING!

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 here. 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!
