Silent Night

Screen Shot 2019-10-08 at 13.15.06Karen’s Book Buzz Review

I usually start off with a description except there isn’t one because I didn’t get it from Amazon and it doesn’t appear to be for sale.

I came across it by accident and you know how every now and again you come across a little gem. Well, this is it.

I visited the author’s website and as I was reading, one of those annoying boxes dropped down and obscured my view. It invited me to join the newsletter with an offer of a free book. Being a sucker for a free book, I joined.

I know of the author, have spoken to her but never read any of hers. They are mostly Science Fiction/Fantasy stories, books I tend to sreet away from as a rule.

On inpulse I filled in the details and was invited to download the free book. I didn’t even see the cover. It was a short read and having just finished two short reads on the run, decided to start on this one.

What a cracking story! I absolutely loved it!

It was set on a planet where people were forced to leave earth mainly because of terrorist attacks.  scientists had also discovered transportation. Now, if you’re not a fan of this genre your eyes are probably glazing over. But stop, keep reading!

The story is set in a bar and Deak is the bartender. Real people, real situations, and a message in the story that will resonate.

Never give up hope.

Deak is in a deep depression and had let himself go, thus not seeing things as they really were. There are people who care for him, he just doesn’t recognise them. Just when we think we are going to see the last of him, something happens that changes his outlook on life.

Ah, it was just a great story, I loved it!  Hope is such. great word. Without hope, where would we be?

If you want to read this story, you’ll have to sign up for the newsletter and that really isn’t a bad thing. If her newsletters are anything like her blog posts, they will be worth it.

This is the website, I urge you take a look and give it a read!

A New Concept For Writers

Electric Eclectic Books

50279620_581154402357827_7195998343288324096_n

 

We are a brand of books, rather than a publisher. What makes us different is that the author claims all royalities, and has full control of their own book. It was originally just novellas, created for readers to find new authors without having to purchase a full book. While this is still true, there are other things that Electric Electic Books now do.

  • Back Stories – are excellent ways to explore and individual (or several) characters life (or lives) in more depth, even from childhood or birth, delving into their lives to find what experiences moulded their temperament and persoanlity. What traumas or conquests brough them to this point in their lives?
  • Parallels give authors the prospect of exploring untold events from their books; these parallels are like a sidebar, allowing incidents not fully incvestigated in other volumes, now to be discovered by their readers.
  • A Prequel is, of course, telling the tale of what happened before the series started, the worlds, the events, the people, their endevours and conflicts, the formation and destruction of agreements, syndicates, cartels and collborations… there is no end of possibilty.
  • Longer books are now accepted, too.

Combined with our Novelletes, Electric Eclectic is proving to be the thinking authors marketing.

Who does not want to use a method of marketing which pays the authors to promote their own books?

Could your writing fill that criteria? We are looking for authors to join us and enjoy the many benefits we offer.

Ice, the nineth book in the series!

Screen Shot 2019-09-18 at 11.24.01

Electric Eclectic are very pleased to announce our first book series. If you love science fiction and fantasy then you will love this selection of books. However, we are going to celebrate the ninth book in the series.

Screen Shot 2019-09-13 at 11.00.07Description

Thirty years after Pseudosynths were produced as robot slaves, they are now revered by the human race as heroes. Humanity is living a dream existence side-by-side their new artificial intelligence counterparts, Robokopias, which look, act, and talk like anyone or anybody you choose. Only the Pseudosynths remember the time shift to set the planet on the correct course in 2075 and the warning that went along with it before the Robokopias were produced. Why is this warning so important?

In Ice, if you or one of your family members die, it is your choice is to have your thoughts and memories transferred into one of these ‘Robokopias’ so you can continue to live. Almost a billion Robokopias live, work, and play next to humans around the planet with the ‘Ten Commandments of Robotics’ keeping them in line. These commandments cannot be modified, erased, or overridden. Nothing can go wrong, ever.

In the wildest artificial intelligence story that is not too far away according to experts, America finds itself wishing that they had never heard of the word “robot” as millions of Robokopias are purposely turned against their owners by a strange pyramid that may not be of this world.

Join Jaesa, Ray Nelson, General Cooper, Athana, the Xanthes, and some surprise artificial intelligence characters with a brand new cast of unique Robokopia characters who will join the fight in the most chilling and icy Pseudoverse novel. This is a novel filled with fantastic technology. Harmony’s stolen MOTT time transference plans and new pair of glasses called “Looking Glass” that allows you to look one hour into the future are used against the human race. Could this new technology eventually be used to right the wrongs done to the American people?

If you loved the Pseudoverse Series novels, which pit humans against robotics and artificial intelligence, you will love Ice and the follow-up novel, Fire. Once this ride starts, it does not stop, and we guarantee you will not be able to put it down. This “coming to a life near you soon” saga, which is positively and negatively prophesied by hundreds of scientists, transhumanists, scholars, theologians, and robotic engineers, is a chilling reminder of the upcoming “Singularity.” Which side will you be on once the war starts?

Excerpt

“A toast to a brave new world and the future it brings,” Hollyann smiled, raising her glass up as three of the four scientists’ clanked glasses with her.

“Ah, the ever indelible and misunderstood, Adelous Huxley,” Chilton said, staring into Hollyann’s eyes, “are we the Alphas?”

“Yes, outstanding Mr. Blaze. You are schooled in the ways of the literary world very well.” Hollyann told him, wrapping her tongue around the rim of her wine glass.

“I don’t give a fuck about Huxley!” M.J. blurted out at the top of his lungs, “I must admit you are one gorgeous whore, but I don’t do work for Russian assholes who kidnap me. Where is my wife by the way?” M.J. gave her an evil stare huffing and puffing, refusing to acknowledge her toast looking away from her.

“She is at home safe with you,” Hollyann told him, smiling. The bartender poured her another glass of wine.

“You replaced me, didn’t you, bitch?” M.J. was red-faced and angrier than a nest full of whacked hornets on a hot Georgia day. “I don’t work for your dumbass, you cunt, and I am not about to start for some artificial intelligence you bow down to. I am a teacher, and I will be dammed if I start lying in bed with dogs who assisted the very assholes responsible for the global massacre thirty years ago. They will find out that is not me in Georgia and the cops will begin a massive manhunt. You and your people are nothing but primates and animals, and I hope they put a bullet between those baby blues of yours. Better yet maybe they’ll take your head off and put it on ice for a while.”

Taking a huge swig of beer M.J. was sweating. He was waiting for a response from Hollyann, but none came his way. “Thanks to Professor Chilton Blaze no one is searching or looking for anyone in this tower or this compound including the several thousand technicians, engineers, and rocket scientists working here except Miss Reynedropolous, who cannot be imitated precisely or replaced due to the hundreds of Transhuman circuits running through her incredible body. Professor Blaze knows how easy these replacements can be duplicated and put into place over six weeks, or perhaps four weeks, don’t you?” 

Why are rocket scientists here in Madagascar? Reyne thought hard about those words. “

Yes, she is correct,” Chilton, replied as the three scientists stared at him for answers. “I had no knowledge of any of this, but due to Robotica’s NDA, I currently cannot share with you what I know about the Robokopias. I am bound by Robotica’s legal obligations.”

“He is telling the truth. Now, I would like to share something with all of you,” Hollyann told them pulling a modified non-standard Vidset out of a pocket from her dress. “This is something that the Russian scientists came up with from their MKUltra trials during the 60s and 70s.”

Swiping a couple of screens, her fingers were dialing a circular icon on her home page. She did not attempt to hide the Vidset from any of them as M.J. dropped his beer on the floor. It smashed on the tile in pieces. Cold-brew flew in all directions, including Reyne’s dress and Chilton’s pants.

All of them backed up as M.J. became stiff as a board. Blood dripped from his nostrils. Trying to wipe the blood off his face, his hands were suddenly paralyzed as if he were in the middle of a stroke. He pissed down his own leg creating a yellow puddle on the white tile floor around his shoes.

Doctor Suleka Matthew screamed aloud. “Stop it!” She held her face in shock, not knowing what to do.

Half Rapter/Half Man – Meet Ka

Screen Shot 2019-08-06 at 09.31.15

@CrimsonCloakPub #crimsonauthors

Description

Ka, half raptor and half man, must undertake three tests to become a member of the elite Icarian Squadron, flyers who dedicate themselves to the destruction of Summia and to an alliance with Imperiana. In order for him to succeed, he must first overcome his own fears, but in the process he discovers how Imperiana has manipulated the trials and Ka’s own emotional needs. Captain Harriman, under Imperial command, is ordered to make sure the fledgling flyers bow to Imperiana’s control. Will Ka be able to survive the trials and become an Icarian as his father was in the first war between Imperiana and Summia, or will his failure lead to disgrace and exile from the Rookery?


Excerpt

Ka swerved at the last minute hoping to avoid a humiliating landing on top of Commander Seron, but it was too late for that. His momentum carried him and Seron into a row of stinging nucrets, the only bushes able to survive the high altitude and severe winds. The recruits rushed to help the commander out of the scraggly shrubs.

“Eleven.” Seron waved the young flyers away as he found his footing and shook the nettles from his wings. He reached out his hand to Ka. “Son, don’t bother showing me your wingtips. I got a good taste of the Ugwana in your . . . your . . . well, I can’t exactly call it a landing . . . more of a collision.”

Accepting the commander’s hand, Ka extracted himself from the nucrets. “My apologies, Commander. I’ll do better next rotation.”

“I didn’t say anything about how you should get back here . . . only that you do it under the time limit. And you . . . you were a good deal under the time limit.” Seron put his arm around Ka as he led him back to precipice. “Were you trying to commit suicide in that dive? Never saw anyone reach the bottom faster . . . but at that speed . . . thought you said you were afraid of heights?”

“I am . . . I mean . . . I was.” Something inside him had been transformed. Ka looked over the edge and down to the Rookery. The panic was gone. His breakfast stayed in his stomach.

Icarian is an off shoot of Patch Man. I wanted to focus on one of the characters in Patch Man, so I chose Ka, the Icarian. I’ve done the same with another character, Ulan, only this time I created a full length book. In all so far, the Patch Man series has six books. The second book is due out by the end of August .

Screen Shot 2019-08-06 at 09.34.07A prophecy declares a small child will decide the victory between two countries paralyzed by war…

An old man sells magical patches on the ruined streets of Hagra-Dis when a small, one-armed girl begs him to fix her doll. An Imperial missile blast kills the little girl, Meesha, but Var patches her back to life, and they flee marauding storm troopers.

Imperial High Command unleashes Ulan, a formidable assassin and mystic who chases the Patch Man and his ragged band of followers through a labyrinth peopled with powerful beings and monsters. Both the pursued and pursuers find themselves in life or death situations when they encounter the Greeter, a mysterious being who controls the entrance to parallel worlds populating the labyrinth. It is in these domains they discover clues to end the war—with little Meesha as the secret key to ultimate victory and peace.

Answers From Alyce

AFA Teaser 1 - Copy

Welcome to the blog tour for Mistral Dawn’s new novel, Answers From Alyce

Blurb

If someone asked you to explain what’s going on in the world right now, would you be able to?
What if the person who was asking had no prior knowledge of our world, how difficult would it be to help them makes sense of current events?
That’s the challenge Alyce is presented with when she’s kidnapped by aliens who want her help in creating a museum of curiosities based on Earth’s culture.
Follow Alyce down the rabbit hole as she experiences the journey of a lifetime; the trip might just paint the reality you’ve become accustomed to in a new color…

Characters are clever and in many cases entertaining while the commentary is clearly outlined and yet still thoughtfully delivered.”

“I stayed riveted to this book until the very end. You get that rabbit, Alyce.”
