While I continue to write my current work in progress, I’ve also been rereading one of my favorite books I’ve written. I just set up my book A Map, a Mage, and a Sacrifice with a new cover, one that fits the story better, and I also have it set up as a free Kindle book starting today through Tuesday.
In that story, Corinne and Lukas come from different sides of the empire run by the mages. Magic abounds, but it has a great cost. In ages past, the mages would sacrifice the people, taking their lives to increase their power, but that drained the population. Now, they use their generators, where youth are brought to have their lifeforce siphoned away to increase the mages’ power. At the end of their years in the generators, the volunteers are released back to their families.
The system works, and Lukas has helped his father many times with the process of bringing the volunteers and offered children to and from the mages’ generators. But on his latest trip, things change and he is forced to see the world differently. Corinne is from the outer kingdoms, and the only way to fulfill her mission involves Lukas.
It’s one of my best books, so if you are interested, check it out. Here are a few other books of mine that are available on Amazon.
My last book, Collected Lives, takes place near the end of the twenty-second century, with vacations and tourism to Earth by off-worlders controlled by major corporations. The largest corporation, Collected Lives, has several enemies. The story follows the events as four people from different portions of Collected Lives’ process are thrown into the middle of a larger problem.
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.
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.
