2020 Recap

Yes, a month early, but December will look forward, not back.  So without further ado:

Publishing-wise, 2020 wasn’t a bad year.  Two novels and two short stories debuted:  Harbingers, book four of the Sorcery & Steel series; Escapes, book one of Interstellar Exiles; and two short entries in the young adult Jovian Saga, “Jupiter Jinx” in Brave New Girls, Tales of Girls Who Tech and Tinker and “Jupiter Justice” in Bad Ass Moms.

Tales of Mimion

Fun and full of variety, this epic series includes action, time travel, adventure, gothic romance, mystery, space exploration, ancient tribes, and political intrigue.

Among the series’ twenty-five entries:

Tsanastasia suddenly finds herself responsible for an entire queendom besieged by a neighboring monarch who refuses to let anything stop her quest to expand her own realm.  Their local conflict threatens to engulf the entire planet.

Talian believes in maintaining the pristine wilderness covering nearly all Mimion.  Most Mimians do.  She also realizes they need their own space fleet and is pushing for the advances.  Others refuse to accept that it can be done without damaging their planet and are willing to kill to prevent progress.

Tann, unwilling to bow to her mother’s wishes, sets off to make her own fortune as a painter.  She seeks help and instead discovers a mystery of a blind man living in a ramshackle mansion, with no sign of the noblewoman Tann hoped would be her patron.

Treus accepts a job as a diplomat, becoming among the first Mimians to accept an offworld job.  Keeping the peace among the contentious parties is hard enough.  Rescuing kidnapped crewmates and keeping from getting killed weren’t part of her original plan.

Telepathic but not telekinetic, Riann moves between the disparate worlds of the psychically powerful noble-born Royals and Aristocrats, and the common-born Mediators and Peasants who lack all psychic ability. A search for a missing gemstone turns into a fight not to die because of it.

Founding Mimion
Kuleigh often gets her cousin out of trouble.  Even so, the last thing she expects is needing to chase her through time in order to prevent the destruction of the entire history of their world.
