Coven of the Worm

Book One: Estranged Earth

Linda Caldwell attends Putty Hill Senior High with her friends Jane and Candy, where she meets and falls in love with an intriguing young man named David Yeng-Chi.

David seems perfect for her, but he has a dark secret. His father Hamaki had trained him to use a deadly mix of martial arts and magic in the service of his god—Chai'Huon Ju, the Defiler. David is a descendent of the Worm Clan of a long forgotten prehistoric nation called Hunjan. There were other gods and different beliefs among these people, but the Worm Clan had believed in Chai'Huon Ju's legacy of evil.

As the relationship between David and Linda grows, Linda begins to have prophetic dreams warning her to stay away from him. The visions are so insistent and frightening that she surrenders to them and breaks up with David. Enraged, David resolves to have revenge by conjuring his god to Earth.

Linda has a secret too, however—one that might help to save her soul from the Defiler. Prophecy was merely the first of her abilities to develop and—she soon discovers—there were more powers to come.

Book Two: Mystic Moon (in progress)

Eric is the son of David Yeng-Chi, who had unleashed Pure Intensity and wreaked havoc on a Maryland town in 1995—all in the name of revenge. When Eric discovers his true identity, he sets out to fulfill his destiny, which is to assemble a Coven and use it to release his evil god on Earth.

Daniel is an Avatar of the gods, and only he knows how to find the others like him. It is his destiny to gather the Avatars and lead them to battle against the Defiler before he can wage war on Heaven. Together with Dawn Lu, Linda Levinston, and FBI agent Carl Timmers, Daniel searches for Eric and his coven—hoping to find them before they can succeed with their diabolical plans.

Sanctuary of the Mind is Free

In an earlier post I announced that I'd published a novelette through Lulu as an experiment. So far I've had a couple of unofficial but encouraging comments from three of the reviewers at Lulu about Sanctuary of the Mind. They pointed out some problems with the manusript and I endeavored to correct them, and I gave it a new cover that I think looks much nicer.

I also did a short book of poetry called Fire and Other Poems. Both are available as PDF downloads at my Lulu storefront. Sanctuary of the Mind is FREE for a limited time, so if you like thrillers please check it out, and Fire and Other Poems is only $.94.

Here's the description for Sanctuary:

(WARNING: Mature Content) Leslie Perk was not a good person. There was a time when he might have cared but it was long gone. He was a drug addict and a thief, and his feelings for his girlfriend were offensive at best. Still, he might have changed, might have become a better man and salvaged his love for Jackie, until something sinister occurred that seized control of his life…

I hope you like them!

That is a very cool cover!

Yes, nice cover!

So I see there's an Amazon ad on your sidebar, did you get it all figured out? Don't know if that's a "banner" one, or if it's an Omakase thingy that just doesn't recognize me yet. Anyway, sorry I didn't get the chance to check in sooner, I was taking a couple days off. Let me know if you have any questions, though I'm hardly an expert!

And good luck with all your commercial ventures!

That IS a nice cover. I like it. I have never done an ebook before. I think I just might start with Sanctuary of the Mind.

Are they printable after you download them?
