Hi Everyone,

Feel free to write to me at www.susancartwright.com. I am always happy to hear from readers.

As Virginia Wolf says, “Writing is like sex, first you do it for love, then you do it for your friends and then you do it for money.” Just now I am writing because I love it. You know how much fun it is reading a book? Well writing one is much more fun. You get to kill characters off, make them suffer or fall in love…half the time I have no idea what will happen next…

I really enjoyed writing “Wolf Dawn” and the sequel, “Wolf Revenge.” My next project is “Wolf Trap” then “Wolf Triumph.” They are all in the “Forsaken Worlds” series.

Thanks for reading!

Susan

Book Description

Spiderwork by LK Rigel

The Indie Book of the Day for 23rd of August 2012!

Genre: Science Fiction, Fantasy

An Apocapunk Science Fiction Fantasy - – – – - Her fate was to hold the world together. His destiny was to tear it apart.

Durga was chosen by the goddess Asherah to rule Red City, home base of Asherah’s chalices who provide natural-born heirs to kings in the new world. She must enact laws to protect the chalices’ hearts, as their sacred duty means giving up the children they bear. A chalice herself, Durga’s life is filled with luxury, pleasure, and duty. She can have anything she wants–but love.

When Garrick threatens the delicate new world order, Durga finds an ally in Khai, the free-willed scion of Luxor. Khai is strong and brilliant, and Durga’s feelings for him deepen into more than admiration. She must repress her love or incite Asherah’s wrath.

Unfortunately, it may be too late.

Defying Gravity by Cherie Reich

Book Description

Defying Gravity by Cherie Reich

A Futuristic Space Fantasy Novelette

Homesick upon the SS Perseid, Linia, a young linguist, thinks she signed up for a mission of peace, but her crew members have another plan: attack the planet Medusa.

Bored with his dying planet, Alezandros, a space cruiser pilot, joins the Medusan army in his quest for adventure.

When the SS Perseid clashes with the Medusans’ cruisers, Alezandros and Linia’s lives intertwine. Sucked through a wormhole, they crash upon a post-apocalyptic Earth and are captured by cannibals. In adjacent cells, Alezandros and Linia cast their differences aside for a common bond: escape. But when romantic feelings emerge between them, they might do the unthinkable because for a Medusan and a Persean to fall in love, it would defy gravity.

Splintered Energy by Arlene Webb

Book Description

Splintered Energy by Arlene WebbSplintered Energy is an Earth-based science fiction/suspense/romance novel, the first in a four book series and not a stand-alone story. Book 2, The R Word, picks up where Splintered Energy leaves off. House of Seven, book 3, leads to book 4, Under Color, the final in the series.

Waves of pure energy are quite happy hanging in the cosmos, traveling at the speed of light to brighten up the sky–until dawn breaks. Literally.

When sentient light fractures, it zaps into human bodies and becomes trapped. Without any memories to guide them, a handful of confused beings whose skin tones are now specific colors, struggle to understand humanity while it’s quite clear they shouldn’t be in this world. The few humans clued in to Earth’s invasion don’t flutter, but are drawn to their fiery fate with hearts wide open as they fight to survive.

California. A widower’s twelve-year-old son is rather young to bring home a woman, especially a collapsed green beauty too frightened to open her eyes.

Arizona. A divorcee blinks hard, but the gorgeous red guy stepping in front of her car is still red. She swerves to avoid hitting him and ends up in the ditch. When she comes around, she wonders which layer of hell she’s fallen into.

Ohio. A teen also fears he’s dealing with the demonic, but no matter how dangerous things become, he’s determined to stand by a man with inhumanly blue eyes.

IBD Verdict

Splintered Energy is like the anatomy of light, spearheaded with a mystical plot, filled with colorful characters (literally) and yet so original & pristine.

Book Extra

Splintered Energy is a 110, 000 word, science fiction suspense story with layers of romance. It’s suitable for mature audiences and the first in a four book series.

* * * *

California. A widower’s twelve-year-old son is rather young to bring home a woman, especially a collapsed green beauty too frightened to open her eyes.

Arizona. A divorcee blinks hard, but the gorgeous red guy stepping in front of her car is still red—hello, ditch. When she comes around, she wonders which layer of hell she’s fallen into.

Ohio. A teen also fears he’s dealing with the demonic, but no matter how dangerous things become, he’s determined to stand by a man with inhumanly blue eyes.

No question, their lives will never be the same again.

Dawn breaks—literally. Energy sparks across the horizon, power grids go down, and the journey to understanding what, where, and why begins.

Energy splinters and a few hapless humans fall dead. A moment later, hearts regain their beat and the confused aliens witness their first sunrise through the eyes of the deceased. Sentient beings can’t recall a past, other than a blissful haven. Nor do they have memories from the host whose body they unwittingly hijacked.

Only one learns to hide his unique skin color, and he assumes the identity of the victim, Malcolm James.

Malcolm learns of escalating violence through news clips. The cohorts he’s able to locate—vibrant personalities with enhanced predatory skills—are breaking every law there is. He has a goal: return to wherever it is he belongs. But he can’t do that alone, and is forced to shoulder the burden of reunification, despite his fear those who cross paths with color, himself included, may become permanently scarred or worse, killed.

This reluctant leader has no doubt—living light does not belong on Earth.

Sci-fi, paranormal, thriller-mystery, indefinable, I’m an author who adds sweet and spicy layers of romance to any genre.

I was born in upstate New York, land of cows, snow, drizzle and sometimes a ray of sun. Mom played with bacteria as a lab technician, read many magazines and books, made up charts for chores, cooked and cleaned, and drank vodka upon occasion. Dad worked for the phone company, fixed things, built houses, decapitated chickens, shot deer, and drank vodka and beer as often as possible.

Second oldest with four siblings, I spent my childhood reading everything I could get my hands on. Adolescence found me questioning the validity of everything I read, along with acquiring the usual scars of high school.

Early twenties, I headed for the Pacific. A stop off to visit a friend in the desert turned into years in Tucson, Arizona. I worked as a waitress, bartender, greenhouse worker, greyhound trainer, while swapping a pysch major for one in plant sciences at the University of Arizona. Fired for skipping employee meetings at restaurants, employee gambling at the dogtrack, refusing to use live rabbits as bait, it fell to planting cacti and bartending to pay my way through college.

My late twenties found me running family owned greenhouses and florist shops in New York. When the reality of retail life became too mundane to handle, I began an obsessive love of creating more interesting worlds.
