Hi Tawnya,
I don't know! Honestly, I've never done anything to list my books - they just seem to end up getting listed. I don't spend much time on Goodreads - should I be listing them myself? I thought it was something Amazon just did when they got published. I'll check into that. Thanks for pointing this out! :)(less)
R.L. King Thank you so much! I'm glad you're enjoying the series. There will definitely be more after 10! 11 is already out, 12 is in editing, I'm working on 13…moreThank you so much!

Two years: Time flies!

Today’s the release day for THE INFERNAL HEART, book 9 in my Alastair Stone Chronicles series.

Almost two years to the day ago, I released book 1, STONE AND A HARD PLACE, with a lot of excitement, anticipation, and, to be honest, mostly trepidation. I knew most self-published books never went anywhere, never selling more than a few copies to family and friends before sinking into the

Hi Abby!
My books are for adults and older teenagers. The sex level is pretty mild (PG at worst, and even that's rare). The violence level can get bloodier, though, and some of the characters use profanity fairly frequently (though not the main charac See Full Answer

“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”
