I love scifi fantasy (Science Fiction with a Fantasy element, or something that makes it different from the normal space opera out there). What am I talking about? Stuff like Star Wars – those Jedi do magic. Admit it.
So I wanted to share some recent scifi books I’ve checked out / think are awesome, BECAUSE of these other elements. Also, I’ve included links to hear interviews with each of these authors!
1. Michael Anderle’s KURTHERIAN GAMBIT
2. Glynn Stewart’s STARSHIP’S MAGE
3. Michael-Scott Earle’s STAR JUSTICE
4. J.A. Cipriano’s WITCHING ON A STARSHIP
5. Brandon Barr’s SONG OF THE WORLDS
6. Chris Fox’s MAGICTECH CHRONICLES
7. ME! (VARIOUS)
I have some fun ones out and more to come soon. If you’re interested in time travel and magic in a Space Marine series, check out the Syndicate War books (with George Mahaffey and Kyle Noe). My vampire and Were series, Reclaiming honor, is about to go to space, AND I’m launching a solo series in September that is scifi magic, probably closest to Glynn Stewart’s scifi fantasy above.
Did you see that I got a new cover for my Hidden Magic Chronicles book 1? It’s the one on the left here – I have a great one for book 3 too, but you’ll have to wait for the cover reveal and snippets to start coming in September 🙂 Stay tuned!
And guess what? Tim Gerard Reynolds is narrating the series! He’s amazing, and has done series by R.A. Salvatore, Mark Lawrence, and other greats. Coming before the end of the year!
The Truth will set you free, but what happens when the Truth is a Lie?

A man and a ghost team up to save the world.
When Rohan finds that a betrayal and near-death experience leave him with mysterious powers, it’s up to him to stop a man with dark magic from opening a portal to the dead.
His only help is in the form of a ghost who doesn’t remember who she is or why she’s there.
Will this odd duo of the spiritual and magical realms be enough to save the world?
He thought he left the spirit world behind him. He was dead wrong.
Rohan defeated the evil Frank Altemus, but now it’s his ghost he has to worry about. To make matters worse, Altemus obtains a stone tablet with the magic needed to settle the score.
Rohan’s only hope is a woman named Nora, a reluctant necromancer who wants nothing to do with the journey.
Rohan and Nora will have to work together to stop Altemus from using the tablet to rewrite the rules of the afterlife. If they don’t, Altemus will turn the world of the living into the world of the dead.
The world has quite literally gone to hell.
Rohan and Nora find themselves stranded and without transportation in a world where spirits and demons are wreaking havoc.
The battle for the world’s survival depends on them. But along the way, they’ll discover others with powers that may be able to help in this spiritual warfare.
Will they find a way to banish the demons, or in the end find themselves in their own eternal hell?
Grab them all on Amazon!

In case you didn’t hear yet, SHADES OF LIGHT is now live! My latest fantasy book release is on Amazon for only $2.99, and is #1 in Medieval Fantasy and Arthurian Fantasy (600 overall Amazon!).
Michael and I wrote this together as part of the new KGU spinoff, AGE OF MAGIC, which CM Raymond and Le Barbant started. Mine is a spinoff that takes place in what used to be Scotland, and follows a brother and sister as they battle with the concept of magic and who to trust.
It’s been a lot of fun, and watching the reviews come in has been quite fun (except one, some person who seems totally lost as the review has nothing to do with the book).
So… I decided to set up a fun game around the new release. Below you can grab a free short ebook, enter Amazon giveaways, and help spread the word — all free — to enter to win an Shades of Light ebook and $25 Amazon gift card! Just because I love you all and appreciate your help in spreading the word.
CONGRATS TO BLYTHE J! You won 🙂 I’ll email you about your prize. Thank you to all who played!
Win Shades of Light and a $25 Amazon Gift Card!
I went for a new cover all – thoughts? This is for Hounds of Light, book 2 in the Cursed Night series, a spinoff of sorts from the Bringer of Light trilogy (all loosely connected in the Eternal Light saga, in case you didn’t know).
Since this book focuses more on the magic, I thought this more appropriate. And Christian (of Covers by Christian) did an amazing job. Thanks, Christian!
HOUNDS OF LIGHT
Katherine is all that stands against a secret order of vampires and an army of werewolves.
From author of the bestseller Reclaiming Honor books (A Kurtherian Gambit series), with Michael Anderle
The werewolf army’s power has spread far and wide, and a new enemy arrives using dark magic. Katherine has no choice but to rely on her new half-vampire friend to uncover the new enemy’s hideout and stop him and the other vampires from seeking control over all remaining werewolves.
It’s a battle of epic proportions, but Katherine finds new allies on the side of light and honor.
Will her new friends come through for her when she needs them? Can Katherine stand up to a new order of werewolves and their would-be enslavers?
Unfortunately for her enemies, she refuses to surrender, and her friends got her back. There’s no middle ground here, simply victory and world-peace, or utter destruction.
This is one of the characters from my FALLS OF REDEMPTION trilogy – can anyone guess who? First 5 correct (or semi-correct?) guesses gets a #Free Audiobook! US and UK only. Comments below!
More Fun Art?
Also, what do you think? I love this artist’s work, and think I’ll commission her to do more. Maybe a piece on Cammie from my Reclaiming Honor series? How about my others – what would you like to see there? Thanks for the feedback!
By the way, this will be the cover of a short story spinoff probably. So stay tuned, and join the newsletter to keep up to date!
PS – if you have the Land of Gods ebook (Falls of Redemption book 1), the Audiobook is only $1.99. That’s a serious steal.
