Ghosts of Modern Magics

box set complete - transparent background

The entire collection of the novelettes from my Modern Magics series is now on sale!  In addition to the four novelettes, I’ve included a brand new story written just for this collection. The topic of that story was chosen by the members of my awesome street team, Team Thulukan from Facebook, and is dedicated to them. Feel free to come join us in Team Thulukan.

Oh, and this collection also includes samples from each of the full-length novels in the Modern Magics series, with a special sneak peek at the soon-to-be-released third book, Magics.

The novelettes were written as companion pieces to the novels. Readers had asked about Thulu and La Fi’s lives before the events in the books. So, I began the stories to answer some of those questions.

The novels are cross-genre Urban Fantasy / Sci Fi / Paranormal Mystery and tell what happens when magic returns to Earth. However, the novelettes are firmly in the Paranormal Mystery genre. While set in the same universe and with the same characters, the novelettes have a  slightly different feel to them than the books.

The cover for the box set was designed by the talented M Joseph Murphy, who designed the entire Modern Magics series. He also wrote the foreword to this box set. (Thanks, Joseph!)

My editor, Jen Ryan from Imagine That Editing, added an editor’s note to the collection, too. So there’s some behind-the-scenes insight from two of those connected to this series.

Ghosts of Modern Magics

Before magic returned to Earth in the Modern Magics novels, Thulu and La Fi’s clients were usually the dead. The Ghost novelettes detail a few of their more memorable cases.

“Ghost Memory” – An amnesiac ghost hires Thulu and La Fi to find missing money from his home for his aging husband.

“Unwanted Ghost” – The couple inherits a furnished Victorian, complete with its own noisy ghost.

“Ghost Dancer” – Young Danika asks Thulu and La Fi to save her dog from the killer who murdered her.

“Wedding Ghost” – Just before their own wedding, the detectives are hired to find out what happened to another bride ninety years before.

BONUS MATERIAL

“Lost Ghost” tells the story of eleven-year-old Thulu and Fiona’s first case.

This collection also includes samples from the Modern Magics novels – Relics, Portals and the upcoming Magics.

 

This collection will be available from the usual online retailers soon, but is currently on sale at:

Amazon

It is such a treat to welcome back the fabulous GS Jennsen. Following up her hits Starshine and Vertigo, I’m thrilled to announce the third book in the Aurora Rising series is now available. Be sure to check it out today!

Transcendence

 

What does it mean to be human? What if the price of saving humanity is giving up your own?

The year is 2322, and we stand upon the precipice of extinction.

The invading Metigen armada has decimated the eastern third of settled space in a matter of days, leaving tens of millions dead. Determined to save the heart of human civilization, Earth and Seneca at last put aside their differences to face the threat together. But even this may not be enough to stop the fleet of colossal dreadnoughts inhabited by advanced AIs.

Alex Solovy and Caleb Marano hold the key to defeating the invaders, for they know the secrets the aliens wage war to protect. Now they face a deadly gauntlet of relentless alien hunters and assassins sent to kill them before they can unleash a potent new weapon. They will risk everything in a bid to save their families, their loved ones, the entire human race–even if it means they can’t save each other.

The lines blur between man and machine, ally and enemy, and soldier and civilian. In a final stand against an ancient, powerful foe intent on eradicating it from the universe, humanity comes face to face with its destiny.

 

You can buy Transcendence at Amazon.

G.S. Jennsen

GS_Jennsen_Photo_400When she was two years old, G. S. Jennsen informed her parents that she would be learning to read now. When she was four, she brought the dinner-table conversation to a screeching halt by inquiring as to what they knew about the nature of infinity.

The rest is history. A long, convoluted history that wound across the United States and back again—and back again—through a shocking variety of windowless libraries, windowless corporate boardrooms and windowless engineering labs.

She has been a corporate attorney, software developer, freelance editor and author (she finds she prefers the latter). She currently lives in Colorado with her husband and best friend (they’re the same person), who works as an electrical engineer, and their two furry, four-legged children.

There are many windows in her home, half of which look out on the Rocky Mountains.

  1. G.S. Jennsen is a science fiction and speculative fiction author, as well as a futurist, digital artist, geek, and gamer. Starshine: Aurora Rising Book One and Vertigo: Aurora Rising Book Two are available in e-book, paperback and audiobook. For links to retailers, see gsjennsen.com/books. The conclusion to the Aurora Rising trilogy, Transcendence, will be released in March 2015.

touraoutthebooka

Dark Shadows of the Past

A deadly conspiracy…
Stunning jewelry designer Christina Connors wakes up laying on a freezing hard surface surrounded by spine-chilling darkness. Realizing she is dumped in an alley next to a dead body, she searches her mind for answers of how she got there but it’s terrifyingly blank. As the fog lifts, memories of dreadful events come crashing down on her.

A secret identity…

Christina finds herself caught in a deadly game of conspiracy, murder, and vengeance. She must discover how to play the game while concealing her real identity as Sophia Rosetti, the daughter of Mafia lord Paolo Rosetti.

Love or betrayal…

Seductively handsome police detective Dan Mallory takes over Christina’s case and vows to protect the feisty enchantress. But when her real identity is revealed, the betrayal is mind blowing. Who is Christina really? Is she the innocent victim running for her life, or is she a deceitful charmer who stole his heart and led him into a conspiracy that could cost him not only his job but also his life.

Dark Shadows of The Past is the fourth novel in The Greek Isles Series. Dazzling Christina is caught in a deadly game of conspiracy, murder, treachery, and vengeance while desperately trying to conceal her real identity. Seductively handsome police detective Dan puts his job and life on the line to protect this feisty enchantress from the threat hovering over her. The non-stop action and steamy romance unfolds in Atlanta, the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Georgia, and the island of Cephalonia—the fascinating setting of “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” in the amazing aquamarine waters of the Ionian Sea. Dark Shadows of The Past will be available Spring 2015.

DEADLY SECRETS BETTER LEFT UNEARTHED

Lilly, fearless commander of the Nehebkau huntresses, is the only thing standing in the way of the goddess’ undead army unleashing hell on earth.  But Lilly has a secret—one she is willing to sell her soul to keep.

In the Time of Dragon Moon

In the Time of the Dragon Moon

 

An epic fantasy about dragons, dark secrets, Pendragons, and magic

On the southernmost tip of Wilde Island–far from the Dragonswood sanctuary and the Pendragon Castle–live the native Euit people. Uma, who is half Euit and half English, and not fully accepted by her tribe, wants to become a healer like her Euit father. But the mad English queen in the north, desperate for another child, kidnaps Uma and her father and demands that he cure her barrenness. After her father dies, Uma must ensure that the queen is with child by the time of the Dragon Moon, or be burned at the stake.

Terrified and alone, Uma reaches out to her only possible ally: the king’s nephew Jackrun, a fiery dragonrider with dragon, fairy, and human blood. Together, they must navigate through a sea of untold secrets, unveil a dark plot spawned long ago in Dragonswood, and find a way to accept all the elements–Euit, English, dragon, and fairy–that make them who they are.
