Here is the blurb for Renegade from Tales From The Kurtherian Universe, Book One.

Renegade, by Erika Everest

I am one of the Drakis, the enhanced warriors of our race. Our Gods have sent us to fight ignorance and injustice in the universe, and to bring peace and enlightenment instead.

On the planet I am assigned to, I meet a native who is not grateful for our help. In fact, she despises us for our interference. Her attitude challenges my entire worldview. Is my cause truly as noble as I have always believed? Or is it something more sinister?

And what are the God’s real intentions for the Drakis?

Each of the Fan’s Write books can be purchased at Amazon.

EC016: Michael Anderle and Emily Beresford Discuss The Kurtherian Gambit Audio Series

To celebrate the conclusion of the 21 book Kurtherian Gambit Series in audio, we connected with series author Michael Anderle and series narrator Emily Beresford to discuss the series, how the two of them came to work together, and the process of creating this memorable audiobook series.

Spoiler alert – lots of laughter and some great stories.

Our original intent was to release this entire interview as a part of the Life Goes On audiobook, but we learned that we were limited with the amount of bonus material we could add to the end without negating our ability to offer whisper sync to listeners.

We decided to compromise, putting about twelve minutes of this conversation at the end of the audiobook, and letting listeners know where to get the full interview.

Life Goes On, the audiobook, should be available at Audible, iTunes, and Amazon within the next ten days.

EC009: Bellatrix Part 3, by Natalie Grey and Michael Anderle, Narrated by Emily Beresford

Today we hear part three of Bellatrix and Natalie Grey joins us again as our co-host.

In the Ear Crush intro, we spend some time talking about Natalie’s latest series, The Vigilante Chronicles, which feature Barnabas and Shinigami. (More below)

If you can’t wait until next week for more of Bellatrix you can grab a copy now for only $.99 at Amazon.

And you can get started on the Vigilante Chronicles immediately as well.  Book one is Vigilante and it’s available exclusively at Amazon.

One man leaves the life of a lawman behind him and works to clean up a new area in space.

On the planet now known as High Tortuga, the mine workers are far too close to being slaves so the ruler of the planet shut them down.

Except for the mine owned by Venfirdri Lan.

He’s taken his mine off the grid and decided to keep everything running. With no need to pay the workers, profits should be good.

After all, who’s going to stop him?

He had no idea there was a new type of man working for justice on the planet.

A man named Barnabas.

In fact, he didn’t even know who Barnabas was. But he’s about to.

Barnabas may not be Ranger One anymore, but one thing definitely has not changed: when someone screws over the powerless, Barnabas is going to bring the pain. With a bloodthirsty AI running his advanced spaceship, those who love evil should start looking over their shoulders.

Life just got a lot more fun.
