What I’ve Been Reading:

A cute bear-shifter romance series by Harmony Raines.

A Second Chance At Bear Creek Lodge

Maid for a Bear (#1)

She’s a forty-something single mom working as a maid. He’s a billionaire bear shifter.

Maggie isn’t looking for anything other than a fresh start in a new town after a messy divorce from her cheating husband. Until she meets Quincy, a man who offers her love and loyalty. But she’s heard that before. However, Quincy soon convinces Maggie he is the one for her. More importantly, he is the father her son deserves. But when her ex-husband arrives in Bear Creek, she’s left questioning Quincy’s actions.

He’s spent his life building a business empire so that he could give his mate the life she deserves. Only his mate never appeared. As the years passed by his gray hairs appeared at his temples, he’d given up on ever meeting his mate. But when he’s called home to Bear Creek, he finds Maggie and her adorable son at his house. He knows she’s been hurt before. Can Quincy prove to her that he is the one she can trust in? The one who will never let her down.

However, when her ex-husband starts meddling in their relationship, Quincy is worried he might be about to experience the midlife crisis from hell – losing his mate.

New Works By Previous Guests:

A new novel from Peter Servidio.

Beta Five

Living his whole life on Senelium Station, Jack Carter dreams of escaping the floating city, getting out of the Slums, and finding a planet he can call home. But Jack soon realizes that one must be careful what one wishes for.

Running the corridors of Senelium Station. Begging, borrowing, and stealing to stay alive had become a way of life for Jack Carter after his mother disappeared. Luckily he has a friend in Stella Steel who not only understood what it meant to be from the Under Slums, but she also understood the pain and loss Jack felt.

These two young adults decide to take a chance on each other and stow away on a ship destined for Beta Five, where they plan to start a new life. Yet things never work out as planned. After being discovered on the ship and forced to do labor to earn their keep, the reality of what true danger is meets them on the planet’s surface.

Encountering inhuman beasts of half-worm/half-human and snake people, the two soon discover that there is much more to living happily ever after. Especially when everything on the planet is trying to kill you.

However, there are rays of hope. Greggor Stillwater and an android named Quirk offer advice and help when most needed. Perhaps these two young companions will find a way to survive after all.

And, from Charles E. Gannon, a new novel in the Terran Republic series.

Mission Critical

Taken from their planet and their century, they are not just the Lost Soldiers: they are Murphy’s Lawless.

Major Rodger Y. Murphy should have died when his helicopter crashed off the coast of Mogadishu in 1993. Instead, he woke up in 2125, 152 light-years from home. Murphy and a hundred other “Lost Soldiers” have been retrieved and awakened by two officers of the Consolidated Terran Republic: Trevor Corcoran and Richard Downing.

Promising to return, Corcoran and Downing leave the twentieth-century castaways with a daunting objective: establish a base of operations on the main world of R’Bak using local allies they have yet to recruit and enemy equipment they have yet to seize.

They haven’t been back yet.


But the company of misfits and ne’er-do-wells who’ve taken the nickname Murphy’s Lawless rises to the challenge!


Picture(s) of the Week:

I decided to do a tarot reading for the broad focus of: my day job, my writing career, and my relationship status using my shiny Last Unicorn deck a friend had spent too much money on gifting me.

According to the cards, it all comes down to believing in myself, pushing forward, aand trying not to spread myself so thin. Focus, girl!
