Xarrok Legacy – A Preview

Preview of Xarrok Legacy

 

This is a sneak peek for the new Xarrok Series. It’s a peek at a fun new series that I am having a whole lot of fun creating. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

(my editor hasn’t seen this yet, so it may not be exactly the same when the book is released)

Arianna took a deep breath and let her mind wander back to the mission in question. When she felt the nanites come to life she opened her eyes to see the visual image of the cave she and Ry were there to save in the projection on the table. Her stomach tightened.

“What happened here, Anna?” Ma’Rax was the only one to ever call her that.

“Too much.”

Frigate soldiers marched into view.

The frigate shoulders seemed to be endless as they marched through the caves. The location they relocated into was not far from the surface, but there was limited cover. Arianna and Ry had to draw their weapons. As they watched it unfold again, they saw themselves badly outnumbered and outgunned. The Frigate commander stepped out of the shadows and ordered them restrained. It was Singh, the reason they were on the new mission. The reason there might be a second war.

Arianna looked up from the projection table. Her eyes locked with Ry’s across the table from her. “We created him.”

“No. He did that. We had to defend ourselves.” Ry cleared his throat.

“He’s right, Arianna. He was a danger when he did this, not because of something you did.” Ma’Rax placed a hand on Arianna’s arm. “We should finish.”

 

 

The following section details a major event in the lives of Arianna Jae and Ry Sar. It happened at the very start of the first war that Xarrok endured since the empire was created by Kala and Yatrell in the original series. Two hundred years of peace created a completely different empire. This incident was the start of a new challenge that would change an empire.

I’m excited about this coming out. 🙂 It will be released in September.

To get a glimpse into the origin of the empire check out the original Xarrok Series. The first book is FREE on your favorite eBook retailer and is in print now too!

Updates and newsletters

So much happens in short periods of time. I don’t have the room to update you on all of it, so I’ll just take a couple of quick chunks.

We’ve been hopping over here. We’re preparing for an official launch of the Knights of the Immortals Series. I’ve talked a bit about it here already. It’s going to be a lot of fun. I’ve been enjoying writing it and enhancing it. I’m nearly finished with book five’s final revisions. Book three and four still need uploaded to the ebook networks. There are a few sites that I love working with.

Over the last few weeks I’ve spent a lot of time confronting something that usually made me feel uncomfortable, even knowing the value it has. Email is a very personal way of communicating with each other. It’s fun, fantastic, and opes the way for people to exchange active conversations. I love that! I was afraid for the longest time that I’d mismanage things, or that I’d chat about stuff that didn’t interest people. Truth is, I do that on Facebook, Twitter, and even on this blog (or any number of my other blogs).

Years ago I used to run a freelance business. Do you know I could have stayed in contact with some really incredible companies if I had kept an email list in one place? That’s how I’m looking at things now. I love connecting with my readers in the facebook group or on my Xarrok page. It’s a wonderful thing and so much fun! The fun part is the best EVER so . . . Now I am going to email all of my incredible readers.

Keeping in mind that I’m a mom, first and foremost, my Xarrok series, which is very busy right now, isn’t something I’d want my young kids to read. Knights of the Immortals and it’s coming spin off, Atlantean Progeny are a totally different thing. That in mind, I’m happily going to keep two email lists. If you’d love to keep in touch about all things Xarrok, there’s a page for that. If you’d like to connect and talk all things Atlantis – Knights and Progeny – there’s a place for that too.

We’re going to play games, get books giveaway free, and do live Q & As for the newsletter people directly. I can’t wait. It’s going to be so much fun. Watch for the next post. It’ll have info about some freebies and the links to sign up.

I’ve had a lot of wonderful readers join me from Kobo, Nook, and Kindle. Late last year I started putting out what I call the Xarrok Saga. These are shorter sections of the full-length novels and will eventually lead to my releasing chapters to the coming novels a sneak peek for my kindle readers. This has been a lot of fun and it’s been very well received so far. Needless to say, this makes me very happy and makes the adventure worth having.

Going forward, I’m going to keep the Saga on Kindle only – Releasing the Full-Length novels to the wider Xarrokian audience as they are finalized. However, I don’t want to leave my Nook and Kobo fans out so, I’ve begun creating two more new, fresh Scifi/Space Opera series that’ll be released solely on Kobo or Nook. Once I’ve got more for you, I’ll make sure to share it.

Can’t wait to hear from you! 🙂

 

What have you been up to?

 

 

Knights of the Immortals in Print

After a fantastic visit with our local school, Knights of the Immortals entered the print process and the first three books have arrived. There’s minor tweaking that needs done in The Choosing (book 2) but all three should be entering the market shortly.

Below are the covers for all three books! They look fantastic in person.

It’s really exciting to hold my own books in my hands. Each of the books will be followed closely by the next two, as the first five are complete and ready to be formatted and released. Book six is the one in process and will need to go to our editor. I can’t wait though. It’ll be the completion of my first serial’s season one. Once I’ve got these six ready, I’m moving into Atlantis’ Progeny – Which is a spin off of Knights of the Immortals. It follows Cerita’s little brother, Carlos and his adventures among the children of the elite of Atlantis.  He goes from poor, nerdy, geeky kid in the top of his class to rich, geeky kid in remedial learning across everything he’s done. Oh, and hes not on Earth.

Can’t share more yet, but watch for it. It’ll be serialized as well, so 6 books produced like with Knights. It’s already a lot of fun!
