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!

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 lovely 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 it 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!
