I was innocent, and they called me a monster. Maybe a monster is exactly what the earth needs.
From Book One:
My name is Sara Slick, and I was an average teenager. I worked hard. Followed the rules. Took care of my family. But normal dissolved the night that the hidden world of The Far showed up to accuse my dad of heinous crimes against the magical community. To protect the ones I loved, I took the blame and the sentence of ten lifetimes in The Deep. No human had ever been sent to this paranormal prison. They didn’t think I’d last the night. They couldn’t have been more wrong.Joyful Deals Here
Don’t dump the cargo – I paid for it fair and square with money I stole!
And so begins the saga of Jack Marber, former Special Assault Marine and his alien band of traders as they cross the galaxy doing the only job that doesn’t leave them homeless.
Nathan has a mission and is willing to pay handsomely for Jack’s time. If only Jack will represent the Federation that kicked him out of the service for what was Jack’s fault. He’s not sure they should trust him, although he likes it.
A battle. A spaceship crashes on an alien planet. Its combat troops deploy. The aliens run for their lives. Until they can run no more. Then they fight back. Against a superior enemy, technology is key. But the aliens don’t have better tech. They have grit and catlike reflexes. And tails. Taj fights to unite a determined populace against a professional military vying for the planet’s future.
Join those fighting to save family, friends, and their way of life in the latest exciting new Age of Expansion series, in the Kurtherian Gambit Universe. You don’t have to read any of the other KGU books to get into this series, but it would be way cool if you did. Read all about Bethany Anne in Death Becomes Her.Joyful Deals Here

Falsehood and promise, suffering in the real world or numbness in the echo. Ravlen sees a different future, and she’ll put herself on the line for it. Her strength is her weakness. But wisdom and a dog teach her that weakness is a strength.
As the choices become fewer and lives hang in the balance, will Ravlen know which path to take?
A Cat and his human minions fight to bring peace to humanity.

With a vision of a world free from war, one man and a cat set out to make their fortune. The most lucrative? Trading in tech of the ancients. If he can find it. If he can determine its value. If he can bring the tech to willing buyers.
But then everything changes. It becomes bigger than Braden and the Golden Warrior. Other sentient creatures join him on his quest. He only wanted free trade. But there needed to be peace. And that became his mission.
All nine books of the Free Trader in one collection.Joyful Deals Here
Carolyn Neville may not be the world’s greatest detective, but that’s fine. She’s a long-suffering Manhattan book editor, one of those dinosaurs in danger of being replaced by spell check and Netflix.
Carolyn is still trying to edit the world around her. But the world isn’t cooperating, her spiritual life is shaky, and her love life is nonexistent. Unfortunately, her job at a Manhattan publishing house keeps drawing her into more literal dangers, much to her understandable irritation. Along with her sarcastic sidekick, Stephen Ames, they investigate shocking charges that one of their bestselling authors, Willow Hayly, is a fraud. When the Atlanta blogger who broke the story is murdered, they find themselves chief among the suspects…
No one understands what emotional turmoil people live with. Boiling beneath the surface until it explodes. The world must change. Unless a person can create a new world and disappear into it, an echo world, reverberating with the sounds of one’s own dreams.
But like a dream, they aren’t real. Who can see the unreal, the real, the fantastic, and the mundane? Those who were born in the dreamland and brought to the real world. A part of them is forever elsewhere. It makes them special. Who has the emotional range, from atmospheric highs to the depths of despair and all points in between to best deal with the unreal? The young, that’s who.Joyful Deals Here
Evil versus evil Conrad Bland has slaughtered tens of millions, a butcher vastly worse than Hitler. He has never considered not killing anyone who stood in his way.
He takes refuge on Walpurgis III, a planet settled by various cults of devil worshippers. He is the manifestation of the evil they revere, but now that they have come face-to-face with their beliefs, the cults desperately want Bland to be removed from their lives, their world, and entirely from existence.
So Walpurgis III contacts Jericho, the greatest assassin in the galaxy, to rid them of Conrad Bland. But once the assassin arrives and begins to make his bloody way toward Bland’s headquarters, the people—especially John Sable, the top policeman on the planet—must face an excruciating choice.

According to Merriam-Webster, Space Opera is a futuristic melodramatic fantasy involving space travelers and extraterrestrials beings.
That seems like an overly simplistic definition to me. It is the dictionary, after all. Still, Merriam-Webster is less unflattering than Oxford: a novel, movie, or television program set in outer space, typically of a simplistic and melodramatic nature.
But we aren’t here because we like to read dictionaries.
We’re here because we love to read science fiction and fantasy. And even if you believe Space Opera is fantasy, like Messrs. Merriam and Webster, you know it’s far from being simplistic.
Space Opera is about interstellar adventure, larger than life characters, and far-flung civilizations. It’s about advanced species, mind-blowing weapons, and life-altering technology, in stories that start next year or centuries in the future. But more than that, it’s about the struggle against galactic empires, about freedom, justice, and finding a place and a family where you belong.
Whether you subscribe to one of the definitions above, or something completely different, Space Opera has something for anyone who’s ever wanted to shoot a ray-gun, meet an alien, or explore a far-off galaxy.
