Apologies for delays

First off, I want to thank you if you’ve bought the Women of the Apocalypse Bundle, either through StoryBundle or Amazon. The Amazon bundle is still available here. It’s 99 cents and you really can’t get better than that.

Second, if you’ve bought the bundle, read Galileo’s Stepdaughter AND Galileo’s Resurrection and you’re waiting for the third book, I am sorry. It’s coming. I swear. I’m on the second draft. It’s taking so much longer than I wanted. I want to give you guys a fantastic story that lives up to what the New Dark Ages trilogy has been up to this point.

Add to that and I’ve got a fairly stressful working situation right now and I’m not writing as many words as I would like. It’s not really you guys’ problem. It’s mine, but it, unfortunately, affects how much I write. I’m working on getting that fixed.

But know that I am working on getting it finished. I’m almost to the end of the third book. Once that’s done, it will go to my cover artist. While he’s working on that, I’m going to edit and format. I want to have it done by the end of the month, but I don’t want to promise anything.

Fans of Adelaide Hunter! I do have a forth book just about ready to go. It needs some editing and formatting as well and then it will be out. If that one’s not out by the end of the month, I’ve been a bad Manda.

Thank you so much for being patient with me and I’m really sorry I’m behind. You guys are awesome.

Why I wrote Galileo’s Stepdaughter

Recently, I was involved in a StoryBundle called Women of the Apocalypse. My book, Galileo’s Stepdaughter was one of the stories included. I wanted to take a moment to talk about why I wrote it.

I’m like apocalyptic stories. Not so much zombies, but things where society breaks down in general. Not like The Walking Dead type apocalypse, but more like The Stand. I also really like the post-apocalyptic stories such as Matched, the Hunger Games, and Wool. I like to see how humanity deals with the end.

That’s why I wrote Galileo’s Stepdaughter. I wanted to see what would happen in a world where some cataclysm drove humanity to religious fervor and fear of technology. What kind of world would that be?

I hope I’ve done that. I’m happy to say, I am working on the third and final book in the New Dark Ages trilogy and I hope to have it out this summer.

In the mean time, if you missed our StoryBundle, and you’d like to read my book, and a bunch of other apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic stories, we’ve put our books into an independent bundle, available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and iBooks. The best part is, it’s 99 cents. You really can’t beat that.

So what is StoryBundle

I’ve had a couple of people ask me this, so I thought I’d take some time to lay it out and explain.

StoryBundle is awesome, for one. Why? Because they take ebooks and bundle them together for a low cost. Instead of paying twenty dollars or more to buy eight, ten, ore more ebooks, they give them to you at a reduced rate. Then, once you’ve bought them, you can either download the whole package (if you’re using and epub device) or have them sent to your Kindle (if you’d rather use a .mobi file).

Let me give you an example, and I’m going to use the bundle I’m currently in, Women of the Apocalypse.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00066]

For 3$, that’s three singles or three bucks, you get the first five books in our bundle; The Culling by JC Andrijeski, Driven by Eve Silver, Flaming Dove by Daniel Arenson, The Digital Sea by Thomas K. Carpenter, and Netherwood by Michele Lang. So, for less than the price of a latte, you get nearly 20$ worth of ebooks. That ain’t bad.

However, there are 9 books in our bundle.

If you up what you pay to 12 dollars, you get four more books; Zombie Battle Part One: Outbreak by Jacqueline Druga, Angel in the Badlands by Bianca D’Arc, Galileo’s Stepdaughter by Amanda McCarter (Hey! That’s me!) and SILVER – Acheron (A River of Pain) by Keira Michele Telford. This time, it’s the price of a movie ticket. That’s 45$ worth of books and hours of entertainment for less than you paid for two hours at the theater, three if you saw the Hobbit film recently.

Okay, you’re saying, so inexpensive books for a low price. Is that all StoryBundle does?

No, no it’s not. First, you can choose what you pay. Don’t want to pay just 3 dollars? You can change the payment all the way up to 100$. Well, why would I want to do that?

In addition to giving authors a great way to reach new fans and giving fans an inexpensive way to enjoy their favorite authors, you can also choose to have a portion of your payment go to a charity. The two we have going are Girls Write Now which helps mentor girls so they can develop writing skills and Mighty Writers which is a youth outreach program in Philadelphia that helps young people learn to read and write. Follow the links to learn more. They’re both great programs.

Check out StoryBundle and all the bundles they have going on. If dystopian futures and apocalypse isn’t your thing, they are bound to have something you’ll like.

New covers and price drops

Okay, so things they are a changing. I’ve redone some of my covers and dropped some prices. I’m working on some things (including the last book in the Galileo trilogy and a sequel to Quantum Magic, also a fantasy series I’m really excited about) and I want to get everything in place so people have a chance to check them out. Look for more changes coming.

These books have been reduced to 99 cents for the month of October.

Galileos-Stepdaughter 1- B&N

“Albert Einstein is quoted as saying, “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” For Ellia McAllister, it couldn’t be more accurate.
Thousands of years after a devastating cataclysm, humanity lives in a new dark age. Technology and science are forbidden and a matriarchal church rules society. However, Ellia is ruled only by her curiosity. Defying the Church, she learns that all is not as it seems in the holy books and that humans once traveled to the stars and possibly beyond.
Her knowledge and defiance will mean her death and the death of her family unless she escapes. When she meets the mysterious Kieva, a nomadic Rover, she soon learns that more is going on in the Church than she ever thought possible. Without his help, her life, the lives of thousands of others, and mankind’s future are at risk. Can she set her own beliefs aside, her way of life, and trust a stranger? Even if trusting him might mean her death?”

Available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo and distributed to other ebook retailers through Smashwords.

Adelaide Hunter is a vampire. Only, she doesn’t know it yet.

A high class escort for some of the city’s wealthier businessmen, she doesn’t have any delusions about what she does. She gets paid for sex, and she’s well paid.

But when one of her clients winds up dead after a wild, kinky night with her, she’s in trouble. She’s pretty sure she killed him, but she can’t remember a thing. Can she figure things out before her new powers consume her? Or will the police close in before she even has a chance?

What do you do when you’re all alone in the night and millions of miles from home?

Stuck on Ganymede Station, a veritable retirement community, Janet doesn’t think her life could get any worse.

Until she finds one of her officers dead in her office.

With a mad man hunting her down, she’ll have to learn about her new home and trust people she regards as strangers to stay alive. Will the people she dismissed and ignored trust her enough to keep her safe? Or will this be her downfall?
