B is for Books #AtoZchallenge

 This is a no brainer I guess. Authors talk about..their books.
In my case, I’ve got *a lot* to talk about, and a lot of these posts for the AtoZ are going to be jumping off points for the things that I’m writing.  So, this really is a very loose outline of everything I’ve got on the go – in one way or another.

Universes

I’ll be talking more about the actual universes that I write in in U for Universes, but a really quick overview of the main points are:

Sci-fi

Elliot Peters/Merridian and Harper – This is my main Universe, and it’ll be touched on more in D for Darkness, K for Killers and U for universes.  My policeman, and currently, I’ve just outlined the 300th storyline (!).  Wild, huh?
Not all of them are books, of course, some are novellas, short stories, or flash fiction for blogs and other places.
Glass Block, which is back soon, is the first book, and is set in a prison, and is a little Big Brother, a lot violent and really, a great introduction to Elliot himself.

Then, there’s the Black Monday – which includes the Black Monday Universe, the Salvagers Universe (Farran is involved in both) and The Hotel Oblivion universe.  All three are hard sci-fi, set in space, and *a lot* of fun.  Farran, who is the main character in all of this is one of the first ‘new Epoch’ criminals.  He’s the head of the recovery team that’s sent in before the Army, because the world as we know it no longer exists, and probably most importantly, he’s not to blame, even though that’s the cime he’s commited with.

Hotel Oblivion isn’t just the space station at the end of the universe, it’s where things like ‘Morrigan’s spear’ is set.  I’m quite excited for that one – it’s a series of novellas set on a ship that transports stuff as a trading ship of sorts, and gets caught out in a plague situation between planets which isn’t what it seems.

Fantasy

From anthologies to changelings and dragons, I have *so many* stories, and so little time.  My main stories are either RH/Fantasy, or fantasy of all kinds, mostly though with an Ubran slant, my main stories running right now are the “All my friends…” series, which involves Gods and Reapers, and my Changeling series, with Shula.  I’m talking about both of them later, but my fantasy stuff always has a bent for the unusual, the unique, and the interesting.

Supernatural

My fantasy and supernatural cross over quite a lot.  Oblivion does, and with my erotica, I’ve got some vampire and supernatural novels on the go.  Heavily influenced by World of Darkness and other games, but I’m hoping mine has some elements that makes it unique. I’m also influenced, in some ways, by books like the Dresden Files, but mostly, by the games I played when we lived in Edinburgh.  We don’t get to play games like that any more.

The there’s romance and erotica

One of the main stories I’m writing, “I will wait” is a trilogy that I promised my adopted sister I’d do, at some point. Then, there’s erotica…which I don’t talk about as much on here.

Non-fiction

I’ve got a tonne of stuff on the go non-fiction wise.  Lots of books about parenting, mental health, writing…the works.

And beyond.


Kai42viola.com isn’t just about my books, but mostly is.  So, even if it’s not listed here, I’ll be talking about it eventually. I’ve not even touched on the blogs I write for – from The Indie Author Group, which I helped to co-found, to The Horror Tree, and PublishLeague, which is part of where the name ‘Wildcard’ has solidified from.

And all of this is written over pen names – Kai (x) Viola D Kai Wilson-Viola, Sabrann Curach, River Harlequinn and Lady Fayth to name but a few.

Out right now…?

So, right now, because I’m rebooting everything, I’ve got one pre-order, and one limited edition collection available, and two tutorial books.
You can grab them at my library, later in the week.

So…with that very brief overview, is there anything you’re excited for?  Curious about?

  1. Wow! That’s a lot going on. Excited to follow along. Enjoy the Challenge!

    • Thanks. I’m so behind. I want to get on with visiting others, but it’s just been off the hook busy here these last few days. You’d think that with everyone home things might be quieter, but nope 😉
      I hope your AtoZ is going well!
