Dystopian Freebie & A Shout Out

I know, I know, two blog posts within a week. But this one isn’t all about me, so it doesn’t count. 😀

Fellow spec fiction writer R. Mac Wheeler (he writes fantasy & paranormal fiction of all kinds, even down to vampires & shifters) asked me to share his milestone celebration – he just published his 24th novel. I feel like a slacker now! The latest release is the third in Mac’s post-apocalyptic series, and he’s offering up free mobi copies of New Order Apocalypse, the first book in the series, to my special non-imaginary friends. If you’re interested (cover & blurb below), just visit his blog (where he posts his photography) or his website (where you can read excerpts of his books), and send him a message telling him I sent you for something deliciously dystopian to read for the weekend. 😉


    New Order Apocalypse

  Thirty-three years after the onslaught of an engineered plague that has shredded Earth’s population, technology keeps a starving  segment of the population on the eastern seaboard going, where the death rate from the virus slows only because there are few alive  who it is designed to kill. 

 Jason Kates is recruited to join the inner circle that controls what’s left of civilization. A distrusted outsider, he’s forced into a mission  west to learn if there is anyone left in the heartland, if fields are tilled. He’s not expected to survive. His journey diverges from an  exploration for food, to man’s last chance of survival—New Order.

About Book #24

!NO 3 4x6

This volume of the NEW ORDER APOCALYPSE series continues thirty-three years after an engineered plague shredded Earth’s population. 

Chloe and Ginna Lee must decide whether to continue Jason’s dream to unite survivors, or concentrate on surviving. Chloe hasn’t the tact to play ambassador, and Ginna Lee is more likely to take heads than spread good will. Promises little hope they can build an alliance, especially if peace hinges on a cure for Jihad. Meanwhile, the landscape they must cross still writhes with roamers and desperate clans.

Mac spins tales around rich, gritty characters with a lot of baggage, and puts them through a bit more grief than they can handle. His tone leans toward the sarcastic, passive aggressive. He writes speculative fiction, fantasy, SF, suspense, and paranormal with a twist.

Belated October Updates

Hey, hey, peoples. The more frequent blogging thing has obviously not worked out very well! This month has been full of the crazy.

I’ve been working on the final edits for Tested because it’s due to go to the editor very soon, but I’ve been super distracted. I feel like there is a lot going on right now. Soul is available on pre-order on Amazon, B&N, the iBookstores, and Smashwords. One Night with the Fae has gone free everywhere, and the kind folks at Wattpad have been promoting it this month, so I’ve started using the site again. Links & covers & blurbiness below. (Just pasting what I sent out in the newsletter).

We have an unwelcome furry visitor to the house that’s driving me crazy. I can hear the fecker in the walls, and he’s the type that steals food from traps then saunters off like he owns the world. Jerk.

The kids are on their mid-term break. this means there’s much of the noise. They got to dress up in their Halloween outfits on the last day of school. The twins (who had their birthdays this month – happy birthday, shitheads) were vampire kings because they are made of awesome. (This is starting to sound like a My News schoolwork thingy).

The countdown to NaNoWriMo has begun! I told myself what I was going to write, but I’ve decided to work on Fade (sequel to Soul, and I still don’t have a title for the series, grr!) instead because I can’t wait. I’m excited to get back into the constant writing jazz after so many months of the constant editing jazz.

And it’s our anniversary today, so I shall probably lose a day tomorrow!

Have a great week and happy Halloween – and just ’cause I’m currently obsessing…


Soul is available for preorder on Amazon USUKCA etc., iBookstore USGBAUCAIE, etc., Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.  Release date is set for 8th of November, and the first 50% is available for sample on Smashwords if you’re unsure. This is the first in the series I’ll be concentrating on from now on, so I hope you all will love it as much as I do. Still sending out advance review copies, so if you’re interested, let me know!

Soul blurb:
Cara Kelly’s life is going nowhere when she’s lured to a faery festival. There she sees darkness and magic, madness and lust, and she comes out the other side with new eyes and an addiction to the fae. 

When the faery who saved her life returns to her, Cara knows there’s something wrong. Two souls exist in one body, and both need her, but to help one, she’ll end the life of the other. At first, her mind is made up, but both souls know how to charm her. 

As the days pass, it becomes clear that the faeries need a leader, and Cara finds herself sucked into a world where morals don’t exist. The truth of her past is hidden in the magic, but all Cara needs to do is survive the king’s coronation, then the fae will let her go forever. 

But that’s not what she wants anymore, and it’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference between a king and a half-blooded solitary faery. Cara’s losing her way, and her heart, to the fae, but there’s still her life, and her humanity, left to lose.


One Night with the Fae

One Night with the Fae is also free on Barnes & NobleSmashwords, iBookstore IEGBCAAUUS, etc., and Amazon UK & US. It kickstarted the idea of this series, so you might like to read that first.
