NECROMANCER’S SONG COMPENDIUM BOOKS

Now available two compendium books for the Necromancer’s Song series.

The Two is placed in the current century. Love is a connection in the spiritual realm. The Two are not human, rather mystical beings that have existed since the beginning of time and change form at the discretion of Fate. They both discover, in a tragic way, who they are and what they are to each other. Fate decides when it is time for the two beings to regenerate into new forms. Maybe they will be human this time, but that is up to Fate.

The Dark Beginning is set a few hundred years from now. The Dark Beginning is a fast paced look into the life of one of Thanatos Mooreclasian Magne’s recovered souls and a brief glimpse at the necromancer’s methods. Mooreclasian has seen the future. He sees the inevitable destruction of human kind and knows there is no stopping it. He begins to form a plan to prevent history from repeating again. He sets his plan in motion so when the dust settles on armageddon he will be ready. Technology dependant humans are losing control of society, civility and normalcy. Nicolas Maverick is one of those typical humans.

Get Your Medieval On

Our new book, The Travelers’ Song is not set in medieval times; however, in our story this world, yes Earth, four thousand years from now life is eerily similar to the Dark Ages. Electricity is sparse, as is plumbing and other modern conveniences. Technology is not embraced like it is now, because technology brought on the extinction of humans. Well almost. About a third of humans survived. But, I digress. 

Where was I? Oh, yes, medieval times. 

We will be signing books at the The Gulf Coast Renaissance Faire & Pirate Festival, March 2-3. 

So come see the live Entertainment and a Real Jousting tournament, Live Shows, Medieval Games of Skill, Historic learning demonstrations and streets scattered with Noble Knights, Goddess Princesses, Dragon Slayers, Mighty Kings, Wizards and many more Medieval Characters. 

AND….meet us, The O’Gara Clan.

A Little Bit of Me, Fate Decides and other Musings

I have decided to publish some of my shorter works and poems. I am mostly working them into short stories. My first one titled, The Two, will be published this weekend. These stories will be of varied lengths,  available in print and ebook. I think due to the smallness they will be only on Amazon at first or directly from me. Small in size but big on wow!

Hope you enjoy them.

Available on Amazon in print for $5.00.   E book to follow available Jan 1 2019

Happy Back to School 

I love back to school time of year for many reasons. I have been called an office supply/school supply hoarder. I am no longer allowed to go in to the office supply store alone this time of year. I never outgrew my excitement for buying new pens, pencils, notebooks and other stationary paraphernalia. The scent of the paper and ink sends my pulse racing. I am not alone in this obsession. Admit it, some of you can relate to my secret stash of pencils that I do not share and the stash of pens that I will loan with the understanding that if it isn’t returned the borrower will pay the price with their first born or a pound of flesh. Oh come on! Those are my good pens, y’all.

I like this time of year for the memories of the promise of new friendships. Many of my lasting relationships started during the first few weeks of school. On my Facebook friends list you will see my best friends from middle school and high school. I even married one. 

As you send your kids off to school this month, remind them about the important stuff. Remind them to stay safe the world is an ugly place. Encourage them to make new friends and keep the good ones they have. Tell them that the friends they meet now are the ones that will love them the longest, disappoint them the worst and beak their hearts the hardest. Every bit of love, disappointment and heartache is worth it. Tell them to yell the loudest at the pep rallies, eat the pizza in the cafeteria, get all those crazy people to sign their yearbooks, and pay attention in class. Give them a camera, preferably one of those New Retro Polaroids.  Encourage them to take thousands of pictures. The snapshots  they take now will be gold to them in twenty years or less.

Remind them that all the stuff that seems so important right now should be put to the test, will it matter for my future? No, then let it go. Yes, then give it the attention it deserves. Make them read, read and read some more.

Most importantly impress upon them that no matter what happens this school year, no matter what people think or say, they are special, important and unique.

What or Who is a Whovian?

 

A Whovian is a fan for the 55 year old (as of 2018) BBC broadcasted show Doctor Who.

A few easy ways to tell if someone is a Whovian are: Turn off all the lights while repeating “Hey, who turned out the lights?”, moving statues around while they aren’t looking or telling them not to blink while staring at a statue, yelling exterminate at them in a freaky robot voice, ask them “are you my mummy?” and watching how they react to you. If they start screaming and or laughing hysterically they’re most likely a Whovian.
Or if they wear any of the following:
-Long multicolor scarves
-Red fezzes
-Bowties
-Question mark covered sweaters

Or if they refer to time as wimbly wobbly timey wimey stuff  or if they eat fishsticks and custard.

Once you meet a Whovian you will be asked to watch Doctor Who with them. One of two things will happen. You will love it and become a Whovian or you may find yourself out on your keaster.

Once a Whovian always a Whovian. True Whovians never stop being a dedecated Doctor Who fan. Even in the face of the controversy surrounding the 13th incarnation of The Doctor into a woman. They embrace the change and wait in fervent anticipation for the next season to air.

Still have questions? Drop me a message and I will explain. The one thing I love to do in my free time other than write and spend time with family, is to talk Doctor Who.

2 Days

When we read a book that sticks with us it is the characters that make the story come alive for us. It is like the people are real just not with us. We can see them in the situations and locations.  We can feel the emotions that they are living. As I think about the Perdido Key novels, I look at the cast of characters and how real they seem to me. I live with them day in and day out like members of my family. To me they are almost real people. Well, invisible real people. I hope that when you read the books you see and feel the realness of them too.

William Porter is no exception. His realness is stronger for a lot of my readers. More so than other characters even though his story is not the main plot. He has a distinct personality that readers and I have become attached to. His brutally honest charm is what we want to see in a hero. His vulnerability and ability to love makes us want to love him back. I don’t know about you but when he closes that door leaving Krystal that last time in We Will Get There,  I wanted to be standing on the other side of it waiting to hug him. I wanted to tell him everything is going to be alright. Your story isn’t over yet.

In two days, dear reader, you will have the opportunity to see what the next chapter of William’s story looks like in the third book, There and Back. I won’t give away any spoilers here, however I will say that you will laugh and cry with him. You might even want to hug him too.

One More Week!

I am amazed every time a reader says to me, “I love William Porter.” or “Poor William, he deserves a happy ever after.” William Porter was written as a support character and he is the favorite of most of my readers. The runner up is Brianna Dario and her friends in Bend, Oregon.  “We want to know more about those people.”  Thank you for the feed back. Keep it coming.

Perdido Key Novel #3, There and Back focuses on William and his attempt to find happiness. One more week…..
