Ambassador: 1 Seeing Red

24 October 2114: the day that shocked the world. 

Young diplomat Cory Wilson narrowly escapes death in the assassination of President Sirkonen. No one claims responsibility but there is no doubt that the attack is extraterrestrial. 

Cory was meant to start work as a representative to Gamra, the alien organisation that governs the FTL transport network, but now his new job may well be scrapped in anger. 

Worse, as Earth uses military force to stop any extraterrestrials coming or leaving, as 200,000 extraterrestrial humans are trapped on Earth, as the largest army in the galaxy prepares to free them by force, only Cory has the experience, language skills and contacts to solve the crime. 

But he's broke, out of a job and a long way from Earth.

Will appeal to readers of C.J. Cherryh's science fiction, Lois McMaster Bujold's Miles series and Sean Williams.

The second quickest way to get yourself killed when dealing with Coldi people of the planet Asto is to look a superior in the eye. The Coldi people possess an instinct that demands the formation of hierarchical networks in which every person has a prescribed place. These networks provide stability. They also place one person at the top.
Ezhya Palayi is that person.
After having been released by his previous employers, Cory Wilson not only depends on Ezhya Palayi for his income, but he has developed an unusually friendly relationship with this man whom people on Earth would call an absolute dictator, but whose reign is benign.
The third-quickest way to get yourself killed when dealing with Coldi people is when the leader you depended on for support is suddenly no longer there, as when he goes missing because the system society relies on for interstellar travel goes down.
In a highly-strung hierarchical society, it won’t be long before someone else tries to claim the top spot, someone less benign, someone aggressive who is likely to destabilise peace between Asto and other worlds.
But by far the quickest way to get yourself killed is, as a non-Coldi outsider, to visit Asto and try to interfere in their hierarchical system, to mess with instincts you don’t feel yourself, and people who are much stronger than you.
Oh, and did you know that the average daytime temperature is well over 50 degrees C?

Will appeal to readers of C.J. Cherryh's science fiction, Lois McMaster Bujold's Miles series and Sean Williams.

 Do make sure to read book 1 first. It's free.


Fifteen years ago, a brilliant scientist built a barrier against the dangerous power that radiates from the City of Glass in the southern land, allowing the citizens of Chevakia to live without fear of their lives. Since then, the democracy of Chevakia has prospered, with free-thinking scientists developing steam power and the beginnings of electricity.
But the power, which they call sonorics, controls the weather in Chevakia. 
Senator Sadorius han Chevonian is the country’s chief meteorologist. While taking measurements for his job, he is the first to notice a rapid rise of sonorics levels out-of-season. The senate is locked in trivial debate, and to make them listen, he has to take a step he never thought to make.
After the huge explosion of the machine they call the Heart of the City, Loriane has fled the southern land with the sorcerer Tandor, who hovers in and out of consciousness. But while Tandor isn’t speaking, she cannot confirm her fears that he caused the explosion, and that the child she carries has something to do with his twisted plans to seize power from the Eagle Knights who rule the City of Glass.
Just before the explosion, southern queen Jevaithi fled into Chevakia with her young lover Isandor. While they think they’re free of the tyranny of the Eagle Knights, it soon becomes clear something very bad has happened in the City of Glass soon after their escape. Something so bad that it sends waves of sonorics into Chevakia, causing even the Chevakians to flee. 
Several streams of refugees are heading for the Chevakian capital. Southerners by train, Chevakians by road, into a city that is tragically unprepared, a country in turmoil with a leader whose support hangs by the merest thread.

For people who like their fantasy dark and gritty. Think Joe Abercrombie, Karen Miller, Robin Hobb, George R.R. Martin.

BEWARE THE SANDMAN-HE’LL PUT YOU TO SLEEP. . .FOREVER

He collects women. Imprisons them. Plays with them. Tortures them. He gathers souvenirs. His trophies are many.

DON’T ANSWER THE PHONE

Meagan McInnis is being psychologically tormented. The image of a pair of eyes staring back from a darkened abyss haunts her. Her dog barks incessantly, but no one’s there. The phone startles her awake, but only dead air answers her plea. Until the night she stumbles upon a grisly display in her garden.

THE CALLER IS SILENT NO MORE

 Homicide Detective, J.J. Thomas, is working his most horrific case to date, and he’s seen some pretty gruesome things. The monster he’s hunting ranks up there with Ed Gein. He wouldn’t be surprised to find lampshades made out of human skin in the psycho’s living room.

THEY CALL HIM THE SANDMAN

Thomas is called to a crime scene in the wee hours of the morning. He’s supposed to pass off the case to focus solely on the Sandman. But soon discovers the cases are linked.  Better yet, that Meagan McInnis, is the key to discovering the serial killers true identity.

SWEET DREAMS

With his department grossly understaffed, only he and his partner, Shadowhawk, can see to Meagan’s safety. At the same time they must delve deep into her past to uncover just how she became the obsession of this sadistic killer before she becomes his next prize.

NOTE:  While reading this book, please keep in mind that the original manuscript was written when DNA technology was not as advanced as it is today and people weren’t glued to their cell phones like a lifeline. Thank you.
