BLUE LIONESS

Chronicles of Kassouk series
New edition from BWL Publishing

In the face of Human slavery, Black Sword Captain Ariela of Kassouk must do the unthinkable. Rebel against the Mutant regime. But she cannot do it alone.

Ariela suspects the kingís death is no accident. And the tyrant who usurped the throne looks guilty as hell. As leader of the Human rebellion against the Mutant rulers, Ariela is desperate for help, and Lord Starro, the handsome Crown Prince of the Star Children, offers the technology the Human faction lacks. But can Ariela trust a spoiled, arrogant foreign prince who never fought a battle, and thinks he is destined to rule the universe? Is she trading one tyrant for another? No matter how kind, handsome, or fascinating, Starro has frightening mental abilities. And this alliance is not safe, especially for Arielaís heart.

SNOW CHEETAH

Chronicles of Kassouk series
New edition from BWL Publishing

On a mission to annex a planet for Earth, Captain Martial Terrien faces a culture with incredible psychic abilities, and falls for its lovely queen.

Natalia, future queen of Kassouk, pressured into bonding with a power-hungry prince, yearns to improve her people's lives. She finds the handsome Earth captain a refreshing distraction, despite his five fingers and ridiculous claim of being Human, like the lowly workers of her world.

Captain Martial Terrien, nano-enhanced Space Marine from Earth, is on a secret, desperate mission to find his people a new home. The unexpected population on the chosen planet complicates his task, especially since the ruling caste can read minds, levitate, and teleport at will. Furthermore, the lovely princess and her pet cheetah take a shine to him, and beautiful women always spelled disaster in his past.

Natalia's jilted suitor, determined to reign at any cost, vows to annihilate the Earthlings. When the conflict escalates, can Martial obey Earth Central Command, or will he jeopardize the future of his race to save Natalia and her people?

Friday afternoon :

The Funny Thing About Plotting with Vijaya Schartz  - Whether you plot every single detail, or you write by the seat of the pants, as an author, you plot all the time. Whether we write epic fantasy, romance, science fiction, historical fiction, true stories, or memoirs, we can script the novel for maximum wow-factor. You want our stories to be unique and memorable for the reader. There are many techniques. Find out the one that's right for you.

Saturday morning:

The Joy of Polishing the Novel with Vijaya Schartz - EDIT is a four-letter word for most authors. The book is written, and you proudly write "The End." You should be proud, but a seasoned writer knows that's when the true work begins. You have poured your blood into brainstorming a story, dicing it into scenes, and writing all the pages. Now you can add meaning, nuance, crank up emotion and drama, adjust the pace, and add interesting flavors... like a chef adding the special herbs and spices to transform an ordinary fare into a culinary delight.

AKIRA'S CHOICE

November 2019 Release

Book 2  (standalone) - Byzantium Space Station series
Set in the Azura universe

When bounty hunter Akira Karyudo accepted her assignment, something didn't add up. Why would the Galactic Trade Alliance want a kidnapped orphan dead or alive?
 
She will get to the truth once she finds the boy, and the no good SOB who snatched him from a psychiatric hospital. With her cheetah, Freckles, a genetically enhanced feline retriever, Akira sets out to flush them out of the bowels of the Byzantium space station. But when she finds her fugitives, the kidnapper is not what she expects.

Markku, a decorated rebel soldier, stole his nephew from the authorities, who performed painful experiments on the boy. Stuck on Byzantium, he protects the child, but how can he shield him from the horribly dangerous conditions in the lawless sublevels of the space station?

Akira faces the worst moral dilemma of her career. Law or justice, duty or love. She can't have it both ways.
