Introducing Reading Addicts

What have I been doing lately?

I’m excited¬†to be finally editing the first book of a new science fiction trilogy I hope to publish this year. It doesn’t have a title yet because I really, really suck at choosing titles. I’ll let you know what I choose when I finally come up with one or get someone else to for me. ūüėÄ

I am also hoping for lots of rain to fill our water tanks. It¬†sounds weird, but we look forward to cyclones because without them, we don’t get our wet season. We’ve only had a bit of rain so far, nowhere near enough to fill the tanks, but there’s a low in the Gulf of Carpentaria. If it turns into a cyclone it’ll be named Alfred. So… come on down, Alfred!

And if you’re a reading addict like me, you’re always looking for new books. So I use free and discounted books to find new authors whose books, be they series or stand alones, I can enjoy spending time with. I do that by subscribing to eBook newsletter alerts.

Here’s the latest:

The Tide: The Multiverse Wave is Alive

The Tide (The Multiverse Wave) is published on Amazon and don’t forget, it’s FREE to read with Kindle Unlimited.

What’s it about?

Sometimes regret can burn brighter than the stars…

After watching as her world crumbled beneath her, Kearyn could only guess at what might come next. And she’s not alone. With an undetectable virus, one that spread across the planet’s surface, now making its way aboard the spacecraft meant to carry her into the unknown depths of space, Kearyn finds that the key to the knowledge of her uncertain future lies in the hands of an old acquaintance.

The Tide: The Multiverse Wave by [TJ Ryan, R. Brady Frost, Michael Anderle, Emma Right, Adam Kayce, Sabrina Sable, Justin Sloan, Martha Carr, Sarah Dalton, J.L. Hendricks, Craig Martelle, Taki Drake, TS Paul, Katherine Hayton, RJ Crayton, E.E. Isherwood, Dale Furse, K. S. Brooks, Debbie Cassidy, James S. Aaron, H.J. Lawson]

We all had great fun writing this story and I can’t believe how well it came together considering each chapter was written by a different author and no one had any idea of what was going to be written until it was written. ūüėÄ

Here’s the list of¬†authors and their chapter numbers, and as you can see, I wrote Chapter 17.

The Tide authors:

Chapter 1 – TJ Ryan
Chapter 2 – R. Brady Frost
Chapter 3 – Michael Anderle
Chapter 4 – Emma Right
Chapter 5 – Adam Kayce
Chapter 6 – Sabrina Sable
Chapter 7 – Justin Sloan
Chapter 8 – Martha Carr
Chapter 9 – Sarah Dalton
Chapter 10 – J.L. Hendricks
Chapter 11 – Craig Martelle
Chapter 12 – Taki Drake
Chapter 13 – TS Paul
Chapter 14 – Katherine Hayton
Chapter 15 – RJ Crayton
Chapter 16 – E.E. Isherwood
Chapter 17 – Dale Furse
Chapter 18 – K. S. Brooks
Chapter 19 – Debbie Cassidy
Chapter 20 – James S. Aaron
Chapter 21 – H.J. Lawson

Keep smiling and I’ll speak to you soon.

Two Authors, One Story, No Rules

What have I been doing? I’ve been writing¬†and re-writing¬†a new Science Fiction trilogy. I’m thinking of putting the first in the trilogy into Kindle Scout. I’ll tell you more about that in the new year.

Plus, I am still writing that¬†four book Time Travel Romance series. Honestly, I can’t understand how some say Romance is easy to write. ¬†It isn’t–not at all. And the research, while fun, is really time consuming. All Romance, no matter the sub-genre, will be published under a not-so-secret, pen name. I’ll let you know more about that journey soon.

As to the title of this post, I’ve also had fun¬†stretching my creative juices in a writing tournament. Here’s the gist of the competition.

Author versus Author 

64 authors.  Head to head.  There can be only one.

Each matchup will feature a story alternating chapters by two different authors.  Different styles, clashing viewpoints, manic schedule.

Don’t like that character? ¬†Kill them.

Don’t like the genre? ¬†Change it.

However, your changes have to advance the story.

Like their character and plot?  Work together and develop a story or series that you may want to continue.

Will it work or will it crash spectacularly? ¬†Let’s find out.

Each author’s contributions will be reviewed by a panel of impartial judges to determine a clear winner.

The winner moves on to the next round and so on and so forth, until we have an ultimate victor.

It was¬†hard, well it was for me. ūüôā ¬†Not knowing what the other author would¬†write in any given chapter¬†was¬†exciting and scary¬†at the same time. But I did it. My opponent and I have finished our match and we’re waiting for the announcement of the winner. The winner then goes¬†on to the next match. Ha, I’m not holding any hope¬†of winning this one, but I’ll be better prepared if I do enter another one in the future for sure.

The story will be published by Author versus Author, but we do get a chance to edit beforehand, thank goodness. ūüėÄ I’ll let you know when it’s available.

If you want to enter the tournament or would like to be a reader of the matches, click this link to find out more.


I’ve also been involved in writing a book with 21¬†other authors. Yep, 21 chapters, 21 authors. There was no solid reason for my choice, but I chose Chapter 17. We had a bit more time to think about how the story was progressing in this one so it should¬†end up being a coherent and readable story although, I do pity the editors. ūüėÄ

Want to see the cover? ‘Cause you do. Presenting…

The Tide (The Multiverse Wave)


You might recognise some of the author’s names:

Hayley Lawson (the instigator), Craig Martelle, Michael Anderle, T J Ryan, J L Hendricks, Adam Kayce, Emma Right, J M Sloan, Martha Carr, Sarah Dalton, Kat Lind, Katherine Hayton, R J Crayton, E E Isherwood, Dale Furse, KS Brooks, Debbie Cassidy, and James Aaron.

I’ll try not to leave it go so long before I post again.

Until then, have a great life and smile heaps.
