December Book Release Update

Published December 5, 2014 by jnaomiay

Well, Gone for a Spin, the last and final chapter in the Two Moons of Rehnor saga is in the bag and percolating out there in cyberland, or rather the AWS server, waiting for its release date of Dec 18.  The paperback will probably show up a few days prior.  Amazon is taking preorders on the ebook though, so you don’t have to queue up for long hours on the sidewalk, bring your tent, and camp stove or anything like that to get your copy of this book.

It’s a good book, if I do say so myself.  It’s a fitting end to the series, and all loose ends, questions, concerns, et al are addressed and resolved.  For those of you looking for closure, I think you’ve got it.  For those of you who didn’t want an end, all I can say is, time has to happen in the way it has to happen, and this had to happen.

So, where do we go from here?  Maui.  Well, actually that’s just me.

As for the books, my big project for 2015 is to rewrite and rerelease the Journey to Rehnor series.  This is the prequel series to Two Moons and follows the lives of several characters including Karukan de Kudisha, the infidel king who pushed the button and nuked Rozari a thousand years prior.  I’m going to publish all this as a novella serial, basically 60 – 80 pages stories that will retail for 99 cents and be part of the Kindle Unlimited program.  Initially, I’m forecasting about 10-12 serial episodes, one releasing each month, although that may grow, as I am discovering that all these folks have actually got a lot to say, and they’re doing it a lot better than last time.

Other than that, we’re still working on the audio book version of Of Blood & Angels.  The Boy and My Enemy’s Son are out there in audiobook land and are well worth a listen, if you like that sort of thing.

I’ve decided not to continue the comic book series as that’s a whole different market which I really don’t understand.  I may or may not continue the Angel Complex or Time Tripping Adventures.  I’ll just have to see how I feel.

In the meantime, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy New Year, and joyful and prosperous 2015.

Gone for a Spin – Now available for preorder on Amazon.com

Published November 21, 2014 by jnaomiay

The last and final installment in the Two Moons of Rehnor series finds Katie sharing a delicate moment with the mysterious Gabe, just as a spaceplane crashes into the lake, steps from them.  To Katie’s surprise Shika, Rent, and Arsan are aboard, but for what purpose?  Surely, it’s not a mere coincidence that has brought them all together.

In the meantime, Sara is stuck waiting at school for someone to pick her up for winter break.  It seems she has been abandoned yet again, for Sara’s step-mother Joanne and step-siblings, Carolie and Rory have already departed the planet en route to Earth.  They are traveling with Jim and Shelly Mattson, who are likewise escaping the Empire, and Evil Emperor, not that he would notice, or care, in any case.

Senya isn’t paying attention to much of anything these days, for he is spending all of his time in a drunken stupor.  It is only when a warning arrives regarding his imminent termination that he sits up, and attempts to mend his ways.  It may be too late, though, as an evil and incredibly lethal virus is annihilating the galaxy’s population at breakneck speed.

October Book Release Update

Published October 3, 2014 by jnaomiay

Facebook is telling me that it’s been 23 days since my last post.  I realize I’ve been quiet lately, but to tell you the truth, it’s because I’ve been hiding under my bed.  It’s cramped down here, especially with Smokey sharing half the space.  The ceiling height, which is just really the bottom of my box spring, is not very high either, making it extremely difficult to type.

Why am I hiding under my bed, you may ask?  Or, you may not.  You may not care at all what I do.  In any case, I will tell you it is because I am living in fear of terrorists, ebola, enterovirus 68, and because the rock upon which my domicile resides is currently under a Boil Water Alert for the second time this week.

Of course, if you are living in Cali, you’d probably be thrilled to have a Boil Water Alert.  Boiling water is certainly better than having no water at all.  This reminds me of a story from the annals of family history regarding a previous great Cali drought in 1896 or thereabouts.  This was coupled with a turned-over cart of laboriously grown watermelon, malaria, and a few other maladies and crises common to 19th century west coast pioneers.

Those of you who are SpaceNavy Cadets may recall that I have used a similar scenario in not one but two books.  If you know one of those two titles where a melon cart flipped over, PM me and I’ll grant you a reward.  Probably, it will be an audiobook code of your choice from the selection I have available.

And, speaking of audiobooks, My Enemy’s Son is due to arrive in retail outlets shortly.  In fact, it’s been more than the requisite three weeks that ACX normally requires.  They’ve initiated a Trouble Ticket to find out why the heck it’s not live yet, as apparently it’s been lost in the Matrix.  It’s very good though.  In fact, Rebecca A. Reynold’s renditions of all the characters are simply amazing.  You’ll be able to check it out with your KU account or purchase it at all your favorite audiobook shops.  If you haven’t listened to Rebecca’s narration of The Boy, definitely go get that first.  Oh!  Rebecca has also started working on Book 3, Of Blood & Angels.  Hopefully, we’ll have that out of the Matrix on the virtual bookshop shelves by next spring.

In addition to the audiobooks, I will have a short story releasing later this month or early next month as part of an anthology.  Three lovely and talented ladies and I have teamed up to produce a collection of stories from several different genres but all relating to murder, men, and midnight.  My story is titled Space Shopper, and yes, it does relate to murder, men, and midnight since space is just a vast expanse of midnight, no?  The whole book should be a lot of fun and it will be either free or bargain basement priced so that everyone can enjoy it.

Also on the proverbial drawing board is Book 16 of The Two Moons of Rehnor series.  It’s almost half way done so if all things stay the same, it should be released in December 2014.  For those of you who have read Fairy Tales, you will note I took a step backward and diverted from the main story line in that one.  This one, which is still unnamed, will return to the main story line, and quite possibly finish it.  But…and this is BIG BUT, as I have said this twice before.  It depends.  As my author friends out there all know, the story lines are dictated by the voices in our heads, which preclude any rational decision making.  If said voices decide they’re not done, then, they aren’t.  If I decide to remain beneath my bed for the rest of my life, unable to cope with the disastrous realities of Planet Earth, I may keep writing tales of Senya and Rehnor forever and ever.  If you want to read them, it’s up to you.  If you don’t, as my beloved and late mother always said when I turned up my nose at her lovingly prepared platter of roasted beef tongue, T ma nishtana? which technically means, What has changed? But in our family colloquialism was actually defined to mean, So what?  You don’t like how I slaved all day in the kitchen for you?  Fine.  Don’t do me any favors by eating it.

However, all that being said, I do intend to put a period on the end of book 16 and try to divert my attention to the spin off series The Angel Complex, and/or Time Tripping Adventures, and/or something else.  A preview of Book 16 is posted on my website www.jnaomiay.com and I’ve also put it in the back of Fairy Tales.

So that’s it from SpaceNavy Command.  Onward and upward, tally ho, and all that.  If you are in the once great, US of A, only a month until voting day, and I encourage you to exercise your civic duty by getting out there and voting every one of those bastards out.

Coming soon to audiobook…

The Two Moons of Rehnor, Book 2, My Enemy’s Son! Voice artist Rebecca A. Reynolds does an amazing job of voicing both the many, many male and female characters in this novel. You’ve got to hear the conversations when they are speaking to each other. She literally had me rolling on the floor with laughter. It’ll be part of the Kindle Unlimited program as well as available through Audible, iTunes and your favorite ebook retailers. In the meantime, start the series by listening to The Boy who Lit up the Sky. Trust me. Rebecca’s performance is simply unbelievable.
