After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.
Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. Then one of the other contestants turns up dead… quickly followed by another.
Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined. Read my review here. Eighteen-year-old Celaena Sardothien is bold, daring and beautiful — the perfect seductress and the greatest assassin her world has ever known. The slavery of the suffocating salt mines of Endovier that scarred her past is nothing compared to a life bound to her darkest enemy, a king whose rule is so dark and evil it is near impossible to defy. Celaena faces a choice that is tearing her heart to pieces: kill in cold blood for a man she hates, or risk sentencing those she loves to death.
Celaena must decide what she will fight for: survival, love or the future of a kingdom. Because an assassin cannot have it all. And trying to may just destroy her. Love or loathe Celaena, she will slice open your heart with her dagger and leave you bleeding long after the last page of this New York Times bestselling sequel, in what is undeniably THE hottest new fantasy series.
Building a safe, prosperous and respected nation
Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love? Maas, is packed with more heart-stopping action, devastating drama and swoonsome romance, and introduces some fierce new heroines to love and hate.
Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. Bloodthirsty for revenge on the two men responsible for destroying her life, and desperate to find out if the prince and his captain are safe, Celaena returns to Rifthold, the seat of so much evil. She has accepted her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, there are dark truths to learn and debts to be paid.

I went to Supanova when it was on in Sydney and had a great time, read all about it here. If you are in the Brisbane area, or can afford to travel there, I highly recommend going you will have a great time! Raasch is a gifted storyteller and a master of plot twists.
Just when you think that you have the story figured out she throws a curveball that changes everything. It made reading the book so enjoyable. For a debut author Raasch truly has world building under control. The world is Primoria, and I know it well enough that I could be a resident. I do not find myself lost in a mythical world that I do not understand and for that Raasch deserves all the praise given to her.
Mather is the last of his bloodline and the future king of Winter. They escaped the fall of winter with a handful of others and have been raised together ever since. While they both have feelings for each other it has been made clear that nothing could ever happen of it. Then Meira is used to secure an allegiance with a neighbouring country, Cordell, to help Winter take back its country from Spring. I would definitely recommend it and I predict that Ice Like Fire will be even better.
A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making. Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. We had to wait for them to restock.

Gormen was a Night of the round table and sheriff of Tintagel, but word of him came along only later, after awl the books had been written. He was brave, strong, and well-red, a scholarly man. He had concurred many a foe and swore he wood never loose a battle if he still had breath in his body.

She wood weight for them at cross rodes or meat them at the ins at knight, ready to employ flirtation two bring them into her cottage and tern them into turns. She had groan up in a port town and often past the skittering see birds as they ran up and down the beech wit the waves.
She shuttered at how far she had fallen to wind up in this drafty hovel in the deep would. A sun was as good as the father too her. A woodsman had stopped to wipe the sweat off his face and reset his bray on his head when he saw a comely less leading a young man threw the forest.
He cud lead Gormen to the hovel in the would. They cud of gone later, butt Gorwen was impatient to complete this task and move on. She left her hovel as the first read rays of the sun crested the hill behind her home, never to be scene again. Gormen was peaked that he mite never face his foe, but maintained a weight and sea attitude.
Scout Force by Rodney L. Smith
I almost hate to post this as I have made so many statements of progress in the past that haven't come to fruition, but thumbing my nose at the jinx, I am moderately convinced that I will be publishing something within two or three months. First, is the paperback version of Scout Force, my first book. If you ever wished for a copy to hold in your hand, your wish will come true shortly.
I have produced two books for other people on Create Space, so I have the process down. Secondly, is what I am calling my Magnum Opus. It is about pages dealing with the human and logistical dimension of mankind's march out into space and the ensuing challenges of settling on new worlds and either barely surviving or thriving. It is in editing, will require revisions and a pass by my beta readers before publishing by the end of October. Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise. At last I have some progress to report: The audiobook of Scout Force has been approved for sale.

It will be a 13 hour audiobook. Audible sets the price so I don't know how much it will cost. It will also feature the first of the new covers. No progress on my unpublished works, but their may be movement I have the hardcopy versions of the Kelly Blake series to get out, so will be a busy year for me. CreateSpace has simplified their submission process, so I should get those out fairly quickly. I am also starting to prepare for the fifth and final book in the Kelly Blake series, so I can finish out that series.
Now if I can only find a sufficiently bad guy for him to deal with. The book's name is Sic Semper My attempt at a thriller. It isn't finished, but is well on its way. Its a thriller for me because I don't even know how it will end. Imagine an America with a president determined to take over the country while twin hurricanes assail the mid-Atlantic and Gulf coasts. Bureaucrats and the administration versus the Congress, people and bloggers.
I've almost got my head screwed back on enough to think about writing again and getting my backlog of books out of the queue and on the virtual shelves. I have located a local editor and forwarded my manuscript of that book.
So, it is a race now to see whether artist or editor finishes first. I will have my Encyclopedia Galactica in editing again soon. That is a guide book to the military forces of the various peoples and aliens in and around the Galactic Republic. I have another book halfway along the writing stage called, The Corps.
If I can get my momentum going again, you will all have lots of reading to do this winter. I have all four new covers for my Kelly Blake series on hand, but I won't reveal them until I am ready for the paperback version to be published and available. I haven't got a clue when that will be. I want it to be sooner rather than later, but formatting for Create Space is not as easy as I thought I'll just keep plugging along until I get them the way I want. Once I publish the paperbacks I will go back and replace the covers on the ebooks and make some minor changes to the first four books, as needed then republish them as second editions.
All minor changes, fixing typos, tightening the text, but not changing the story or any characters. Amazon has changed the format of the book page on the Kindle site. It allows discussions and highlights to be pulled out of the book. My favorite so far is the lady that posted, "Hope is not a course of action. So true, so true.
