This week’s list is brought to you by LegionBorn

LegionBorn final ebook cover F F John

My name is Vaughn Prentiss and my whole life was a lie.

I’d had one goal–prove that an orphan from Baltimore could become the youngest partner at my law firm.

That all changed the day I started seeing monsters. Nobody else noticed these mami watas, zwarts and other demon spawn. With the help of a former witch, I discovered Lucifer was my uncle and that a prophecy foretold I’d bring about his downfall. Unless he killed me and took my soul.

I have a lot to live for and I don’t like the idea of Lucifer using my soul to bring humanity to its knees.

My name is Vaughn Prentiss and I’m going to fight to take my place as LegionBorn. Lucifer has no idea what’s in store for him.

LegionBorn is the first book in the LegionBorn series. If you like action-packed urban fantasy where fallen angels, nephilim, and witches face off with nasty netherworld creatures, buy this book today.

Buy or Borrow at Amazon for only 99c today and tomorrow!

Improve a scene: Urban Fantasy story

I’m currently reading an urban fantasy tale. It’s all part of developing a stronger understanding of the expected Tropes in that genre so I can write stronger stories.

Anyway, the book is super fast-paced. WOW! As in if a story is supposed to have peaks and valleys, this one is all peaks. There’s very little time to breathe. I know authors are told to pace their stories and the action in their stories but something tells me breakneck tales are beloved by a large number of readers.

LegionBorn: trilogy or longer?

Sigh.

As a writer, there is no end to the stories I have in my head. The main hindrance to those stories coming to be is time. There just isn’t enough of it.

Oh, and money. There’s never enough of that either. And if I’m to be honest, money becomes the most important factor when I consider how deep a series will go, sadly.

You see, if the book isn’t pulling it’s weight then that’s an indicator that the book doesn’t have an audience and thus doesn’t deserve to go on and on and on.

And so, here I am wondering whether or not my current baby–LegionBorn–should go past book 3. Continue reading “LegionBorn: trilogy or longer?”

And it’s here … LegionBorn

I’ve got a new book out and I can take a quick breath.

*Phew*

LegionBorn is done and has been shared with the world. It’s the story of Vaughn Prentiss, an ambitious lawyer who learns he’s the subject of a little-known prophecy: he will bring about Lucifer’s undoing. With the prince of darkness on his tail, he must stay alive or Lucifer will have his soul & herald the end of the world as we know it.

The Nome Chronicles is nearing an end …

It’s been awhile since I updated this here blog. Naughty of me I know but there’s been so much going on. *sigh*

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, then you know I survived Hurricane Maria. It hit the island I live on as a Category 5 storm. A weather gauge located two miles from my home recorded 225 mph winds during the weather event.giphy

Scary! Anyway, all that to say – there’s been a good reason.

And now, I’ve finished writing The Paragon, Book 3 of The Nome Chronicles. Three edits down and it’s been sent to beta readers. Here’s the cover – preview-2017-268-ff-john-b03-4.jpg

It’s a beauty, right? Fine. I know I’m biased but my subscribers were very helpful in getting it to this point. I’m waiting for the final version from my designer. This book will be published in January 2018 and I can’t wait! By the way, let me know if you want to be on my launch team. You’d get a free early copy of the ebook. All you have to do is provide proof of having bought

For some reason, I’m sad but excited for the end of this series. It was a very ambitious project. I originally had ten stories I wanted to publish – three full novels and seven short stories. I have drafted/written/published the following stories in the series

  1. The Proem
  2. The Pursual
  3. The Paladin
  4. The Paragon
  5. The Pact
  6. The Pairing
  7. The Premiere
  8. The Pith
  9. The Pegasos
  10. The Phalanx

I eventually had to put a halt to The Pact (intended to be a story about the origins of Nome society from the perspective of one of Invier’s ancestor), The Pairing (a story about Lance Singer, Enyama Damil and Adaora Opitz’s complicated and hilarious love triangle) and The Pith (what happens in between The Pursual and The Paladin – didn’t happen because I thought it best to just put that story into The Paladin).

The Premiere has a cover and has been started but I’m not sure when it’ll be released. The Pegasos … I’m not sure of. It’s the story of Torin, the soldier who becomes Invier’s friend in book 2 – The Paladin. I have no idea whether this story really makes sense for the universe though I’m itching to write it. I also have no idea what sort of cover it would have as I can’t put a girl in a pretty dress on it. 😆

And as for The Phalanx, I wanted it to be a story in the future that shows what becomes of the artificial intelligence soldiers that play a key role in the series.

Maybe I’ll get to write these additional stories someday. I truly hope so. But for now, I’m working on two new series.

The first, coming February 2018, is The LegionBorn trilogy. It’s an urban fantasy series with an interesting take on celestial beings and the humans who just happen to get caught up in their battles. Lucifer has a twin brother whose son might be the subject of a prophecy that could spell the devil’s downfall. As you can imagine, family ties mean nothing as Lucifer wants his nephew dead. Immediately.

The second, coming April 2018, is The Excelsia series. I’ve been working on this universe for almost five months. It combines my love for strong female young adult characters but is set in space. Think a young girl in a universe that’s controlled by powerful corporations, religious zealots and underground elements all in a quest for control of the future of humanity.

And that’s it for now. Let me know if you are interested in joining the launch team for any of the upcoming books I’ve mentioned. I’m looking for folks willing to read an early version of each book and leave their honest reviews when each of the books are launched.
