His Sign: The Wait Is Over — A Serial Paranormal Urban Fantasy Price: $.99

His Sign: The Wait Is Over

Drew Goddard’s war against evil began long before someone tried to shoot him and he got a strange, lighted symbol bursting from his chest. Blacklisted from his intelligence contracting career, he thought paranoia or insanity explained his ruined life, until a golden-eyed woman with tattered wings and interdimensional powers helped open his eyes to a spiritual battle raging over him.

A discouraged minister, a handful of manna, and a trip to Abraham’s Bosom convince him that Christians waiting for a sign need to wake up and acknowledge God’s working in the life they live every moment. Drew’s world fills with powerful enemies and unlikely allies.

Who or what are the Sethites and why (and from what) do they protect him? Why is a farm producing a miraculous bumper crop for the first time in years? Can he trust the person he suspects most of wanting him dead, and solve a puzzle that may save people marked for genocide from physical and spiritual foes?

Emerge: An Iron Sharpening Iron Collaboration Price: $.99

Emerge: An Iron Sharpening Iron Collaboration

Ten souls in a clinic where people with powers are forced to “fit in” to society learn that one group session can be more therapeutic than they thought possible … if they live through it.

Blue is a tree fairy who’s been bullied for her “disability,” a double set of wings. Of all the roommates she could have been stuck with, Sydeera Gibbor, a sharp-tongued time weaver, has to be the worst. But Blue has no choice. None of the residents of the Emerge clinic do, forced, as they are, because of their special abilities, to receive counseling and deal with their difficulties fitting into normal society.

Blue can see that the handsome fire genie and his hot-tempered ex-military roommate seem to be faring no better. Anyone with fire abilities (or a secret smoker) would be on edge when alarms keep making them evacuate the building.

Blue can’t escape the feeling that there’s someone or something else around that no one can see. There’s even one strange patient who keeps getting younger every time Blue sees him. Throw in an irresistible, seemingly helpless child, a providentially-protected monk, and a baby dragon, and Blue knows the director of the clinic’s got her shadow-manipulating hands full. She just doesn’t know that Dr. Parween’s got an agenda that nobody imagined for the residents, and there’s no guarantee any of them will emerge unscathed.

Ten authors created ten characters and shared them with each other to create unique stories you won’t want to miss. Collect all the ROOO (Realms of Our Own) stories and keep the amazement going.

The Space Empire Saga Price: $4.99

The Space Empire Saga

From the beginning … persecuted believers fleeing to space. Generations pass through the corruption of the once godly empire. It may all end unless a desperate plan to preserve the future succeeds when all seems blackest.

All six books set in the Empire Saga Universe combined in one volume. John Winthrop and his family need a refuge from religious persecution. Jonathan Edwards and his sabotaged lunar mining operation need people they can trust. Can they work together to restore a critical Earth resource and forge a godly settlement?

Follow a desperate couple fighting isolation and equipment malfunction to pilot a gas-collecting balloon ship to the outer planets.

When the Sojourner’s life support fails, Joan Cohen has to represent her people to fix the problems and restore this critical means of meeting the Space Empire’s desperate need for resources. She is unsure whether Tony Lewis will be a help or a hindrance.

Michael, crown prince of the Space Empire hopes to save his people from external attack with an internal rebellion and a battle cruiser like no other.

His plans are shaken by a forbidden romance, political turmoil, and the discovery of Earth’s Fourth Empire.

Michael and his best friend Randolph might save or shatter the Space Empire’s last hope for the future as they face sexual temptation, political intrigue, and a father-son conflict of imperial proportions.

City on a Hill Price: $.99

new city 25

John and Ann Winthrop just need a place where their family can be free of religious persecution. The New Hope wilderness settlement starts to look like a vain hope as winter approaches, their supplies run low, and a group of suits arrive in a helicopter.

Jon Edwards tries to moderate the demands of his Lunar Mining Colony co-workers, but strikes and sabotage have made him skeptical that anyone, much less a bunch of amateurs chosen by the company back on Earth, can replace the “real” miners and restore the crippled plant to full production.

 The Earth has to trust LMC for supplies only the Moon can provide. John Winthrop has to trust God that this is the refuge his family seeks. Jon Edwards has to trust that these religious nuts can do the job, even the women and kids, when each time they seem to make a little progress, disaster strikes. Not to mention, they’re running out of air.

Sojourner — Price: Free!


Mark and Michelle sank everything they had, everything friends and family could invest, in the giant Sojourner gas-collection balloon ship. Now it was a simple matter of surviving to suction a full load of Methane from Titan. Massive gas storms, a tiny life pod that might not keep them from freezing, and the looming shadow of government seizure of ship and cargo “for the greater good” might interfere with their sleep even more than equipment failure, loneliness, and sleep deprivation.

Nehemiah, LLC (a full-length novel set in the Empire Saga universe. Chronologically it takes place after Sojourner) Book Three in the Space Empire Saga

Joan Cohen’s people have thrived beneath Mars’ turbulent surface by turning sandblasted caverns into cozy living areas, parkways, and farms. The Nehemiah LLC group is both a strongly-knit, deeply faith-driven community and a team of life support experts. Anthony Lewis is a quirky engineer, an outsider with a million questions about schedules, deadlines, and why Joan does what she does. Can they overcome their differences long enough to save their Space Empire from a crippling shortage of resources?

The gas-collecting balloon ship Sojourner lies dead in space, its life support inexplicably frozen. One lost repair ship means searching a vast maze of tubing. A single failed component planetside can halt dozens of projects and jeopardize the countdown to a critical launch window.

Empire One: Humiliation Price: Free!

Empire One: Humiliation

Michael, prince of the Space Empire, finds his father the king has confiscated his battleship and banished him and his best friend Randolph to the Earth for a summer of camp meetings. They are labeled as Camp leader Jonathan Edwards’ “Bad Men” and sit through service after service of preaching, Michael can’t just “wait on the Lord”. His father has done that too long, and perhaps put the whole Empire in jeopardy.

 Randolph finds God’s Word sinking into his heart. Even the lovely Aidan Harkins can’t tempt him for long. Unlike Michael, he knows royal intrigues and rash actions can drown out the wise counsel they need to heed. While Randolph struggles to balance love and duty, a desperate attempt to restore the rebellion’s charismatic leader collides with the moment when the king stops waiting on the Lord.

Empire Three: Sanctification

Michael tries to draw away from the rebellion, but his former followers risked everything to get this far and have no faith in the reconciliation between the Space Empire’s king and the crown prince. Lorelei might have find an irresistible lure to secure unity between her secularist people and Michael’s. Randolph and Aidan struggle for permission to marry but meeting the council’s demands is a frustrating way to further a romance. Michael makes a desperate gamble to secure his father’s safety. Cardinal Richelieu claims he only wishes to mediate while intrigues and intelligence reveal that time is running out for peace.

The Alexander Legacy Steampunk Literary Tribute Series

A series to repurpose classic Victorian characters, extol “what if” steam and gear tech, and explore issues that touch us today — human trafficking, social upset, class envy, and the need for courage, unselfishness, and co-operation to fight evil.

A Dodge, a Twist, and a Tobacconist Price: Free!

A Dodge, a Twist, and a Tobacconist

Florizel of Bohemia tries to live a quiet life as a London tobacconist. The mysterious gypsy beauty who invites him to a late-night meeting in the Bronze Cascade Hotel seems desperate for his help, but what can be a life-or-death matter to a socialite singer? An eccentric little inventor, calling himself by the absurd name of Oliver Twist, comes to collect him in a curious old mail coach. It only becomes an airship after it’s too late for Florizel to disembark.

How can a former street orphan, a Texas Cowgirl who rode a Giant Catfish across the Atlantic, a world-traveling abolitionist bearing “the Flail of God,” a quiet country clergyman, a jungle tracker, and a Chinese merchant track down a shadowy slave master who trains pickpocket slashers and fills freighter holds with human cargo bound for ports around the Empire? A poison maiden gives Florizel a kiss and an ominous warning: “Some ruler will rise and take the throne of a true Empire where the sun never sets and where the people will never be free.”

The Pinocchio Factor Price: $3.99

The Pinocchio Factor

Can Oliver Twist trust Spring-heeled Jack when disaster follows him around? Masks conceal more than the faces of the wealthy and powerful at London costume balls and absinthe parties in a Swiss Manor. The Legacy Company’s protective care can’t keep PM candidate Trevor Newsome from disappearing just days before the election, but they can’t search for him from the London lockup. The trip to Switzerland is for a funeral, not for a wedding.

What lies are really concealed beneath the long-nosed mask of Pinocchio? Who holds the secret of regeneration? Could the Modern Prometheus actually be a woman? When Long John Silver arrives, Oliver has to do some fast thinking to protect more than just his own life from the pirate who says he only cares about rescuing his daughter.

  1. I was fascinated by the idea of a series of Victorian Steam Punk books based on the Christian world view and couldn’t wait to read them. They did not disappoint. Sophronia’s ability to create beautiful and exciting word pictures is inspired and brilliant. This is my first Findley series and I’m hooked!
    Thank you for writing these wonderful books.
