Malignance, my third book in my time travel series that began with Resonance and Dissonance, is on Amazon as a kindle and a paperback. That was a fun series to write, and for now, it is completed. I have also placed all three books from that series into one volume titled The Machina of Time.
With this time of year and the approach of the Christmas holiday, I think it is easy to feel the pressure to get things right. Whether that is planning family get togethers, or trying to find the right gifts. I think, in the middle of all that, I need to pause at times.
I’ve talked about my love of reading and writing books, and in many cases, that is how I take a pause. Sometimes, there’s nothing better than sitting on a comfortable couch or bed and reading. When the book is good enough, time passed without me noticing. The same thing happens as I write. I know I’m in the right mindset to write when I lose track of time and the story seems to flow onto the pages.
Books, both reading and writing them, are my way of taking a pause from life. This time of year, that escape is important. It gives me the chance to recharge and refresh.
Beyond my books Resonance, Dissonance, and Malignance check out my other books.
My fantasy, A Map, a Mage, and a Sacrifice, was a fun book to write. It is set in a world with limited technology, but where sacrifice is a necessary element to magical power. The greater the pain and suffering, the greater the magical power generated. The few mages in power use voluntary sacrifice of the citizens to generate power they use to protect and defend the empire. But their rule may be coming to a close.
If you’re looking for a science fiction story, try my book The Promise of Dust, which takes place in a cloud city floating in the atmosphere of Venus. Or Progenitor’s Legacy: Deceit, which takes place many years in the future on a tidally locked world that orbits a red dwarf and has been reached by humanity in their search for the alien progenitors who seeded the galaxy with nano machines.
If a young adult science fiction is more to your liking, check out my series This New Earth, that starts with Demons of a Dead World and Secrets of a Dead World.
If you are looking for a young adult fantasy, check out my book The Threads Unbound.
