After oversleeping, space and time hopping researcher Liyanne Zhuma, from the Pleiades Star System, rushes to her transport location to return home after a five year stint on the field.  At the secluded waterfall pool that perfectly reflects the moon, she has just a few minutes before the sun rises to get home.

She is literal steps away, only to be pushed in by a man running from a swarm of bees.  Her robe made of lunar fabric is ripped and her transport fob - disguised as a jade pendant - is broken.  Without them she can’t get home...but there is another way.

She just needs one thing: silk woven by moonlight to replace her ripped robe.  

Duke Zhang Shenwei of the Zhun Dynasty returns home from war and stumbles upon a woman bathing after accidentally pushing her into a pool while being chased by bees. He is determined to be responsible for her by marrying her despite her protests.  

He can give her anything, but all the strange woman wants from him are silkworms and a place to grow them.  He agrees, but has another reason he wants to marry her: he needs a diversion to keep marriage proposals at bay while he settles his estate.

Book 1 is now available on Kindle, or in paperback/hardcover! You can buy it here!

Jack crash-landed on a planet where the natives are seven-foot-tall carnivorous cat-lizards currently somewhere between stone and bronze age. The good news is the natives think the ship that crashed into their mountain is a dragon and are steering clear of it. The bad news is they just left one of their own as a sacrifice to appease the beast. No matter what Jack and his AI co-pilot decide, his life just got a lot more complicated...

ATTENTION: This is soft sci-fi rather than hard sci-fi, hence why I chose that tag. For those of you unfamiliar with the distinction, here's what Wikipedia had to say. 

1. It explores the "soft" sciences, and especially the social sciences (for example, anthropology, sociology, or psychology), rather than engineering or the "hard" sciences (for example, physics, astronomy, or chemistry).

2. It is not scientifically accurate or plausible; the opposite of hard science fiction.

Soft science fiction of either type is often more concerned with character and speculative societies, rather than speculative science or engineering. The term first appeared in the late 1970s and is attributed to Australian literary scholar Peter Nicholls.

In a dark alley of the ancient desert metropolis of Wellspring City, a man is quietly vaporized by something he will never understand. Magic is to blame, and the technocratic Dynamic Brotherhood will hold the entire city’s arcane community accountable with a broken-door inquisition if the culprit is not found. Baffled by the blackened body, the Wellspring City Watch calls the Beast of Sector Sixteen - the notorious (and broke) mutant mercenary Baulric Featherlight. With time running out, no other choice, and the lives of his friends against the wall, it falls to the half-ton manhunter to leverage his magic, cybernetics, instincts, and wits to plumb the depths of the Thousandfold Polis and unearth the perpetrator, before the Brotherhood cuts its own justice from the hides of thousands.

Curse Gunner

Curse Gunner
by IcedFairy
227 pages

Curse Gunner is urban fantasy, set in a realm where magic is common but powerful magicians are not.  Unfortunately for Helena Aoede, if your magical specialties are necromancy, curses, and blowing things up it's hard to find a job no matter how strong a magician you are.  So when a rich woman who needs a curse removed shows up at her apartment, it seems like a solution to her problems.  Or at least a good way to pay the rent.

Unfortunately this curse is backed by a raging inferno of hatred, and it seems it won't relent until it's sated with blood.

Then again Helena's never been shy about shedding blood.  Especially if she gets to decide who's blood it is.

Once upon a time, there lived two great and mighty spirits on the mountain. One loved humans, the other hated them. When their differences could not be reconciled, they came to blows, and the human loving spirit was chased out.

The banished spirit wandered the world. Rather than an exile, the spirit viewed her situation as an extended vacation. She saw all the sights and people she'd only ever heard about on the mountain.

But it was a little lonely. No one could see her or hear her. She was a rootless spirit with no place to call home.

And then, one day, she found a friend.

When anger and jealousy take everything, only love can create something new. This is the story of perseverance, sacrifice, and forgiveness.

AI means Artificial Intelligence.
But those words don't match Al, either of them. Neither Artificial, nor Intelligent.
At least not at the beginning. No, an AI requires input, trial & error, and careful observation. But at that point, what makes it any different than human? How are binary choices any different than the choices in a human life.
I wager that there is no difference. But what will he think?

Meet Threadbare. He is twelve inches tall, full of fluff, and really, really bad at being a hero. Magically animated and discarded by his maker as a failed experiment, he is saved by a little girl. But she's got problems of her own, and he might not be able to help her.
Fortunately for the little golem, he's quick to find allies, learn skills, gain levels, and survive horrible predicaments. Which is good, because his creator has a whole lot of enemies...

Tsunoda Naoki is a ghost expert! Maybe. Okay, not really. He just pretends to be one, scraping a living by putting the easily-spooked at ease. But his luck seems to run out when he's suddenly got a real ghost to deal with. He can't even see this spirit, let alone exorcise her—and to complicate matters further she apparently seems to like Naoki… a lot. Is this ghost hunt a romantic comedy or a tragic horror?
