Kindle Scout Nomination Finding Freya

1 (2)

Kindle Scout nomination Finding Freya is the debut novel of M. Feliz

Author M. Feliz is a, near and dear to me, new author. Her debut novel Fatal Ties is the first book in the Finding Freya series. You have a chance to actually get this book for FREE by nomination on Kindle Scout. If you have an Amazon account, that’s all it takes to vote. Just follow the links above and help this new author publish her first book.

As an author, I know what it’s like to be the new kid on the block. It’s tough. Critics come out of the woodwork. But then again, you also meet some of the greatest people who start off as fans. I wouldn’t trade the experience for the world. However, I wish someone had shown me the ropes when I started out. This is what I’ve done for M. Feliz and I’ve got to say her Finding Freya is not for the faint of heart. It’s an action-packed story. I wouldn’t back it if I didn’t believe that. She’s done a great job. I’m really proud of her.

Here is the tagline and blurb.

Your past can catch up to your future.

In a little restaurant in the town of Bandera, Texas, a woman with a rough background dared to create a life for herself away from the nightmare of her past. Unfortunately, your past can catch up with your future. Not only does she need to decide how to forgive but also to take on a new responsibility she never asked for. Will Freya Gama find the strength she needs to face her fears?

French Wardrobe is Live

512KBeES86L._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

French Wardrobe is now live in Kindle format on Amazon as a new release!

The French Wardrobe story is sort of a mystery. It’s somewhat difficult to define the genre but that’s as close as I can get. It’s different than anything I’ve ever written and I think it’s mostly applicable to female readers though some of my more patient male readers might like it as well. Here is the brief description.

A husband’s fears become a widow’s nightmare.

The death of an overprotective husband brings his widow’s world crashing down. In her quest to survive life alone she makes a discovery not only about her strengths but also about his fears. Fans of Girl on the Train, The Husband’s Secret, and Gone Girl, will like The French Wardrobe.

Right behind this is Surrender the Sun. I’m halfway through the rough draft and intend to publish this, first in a series, as soon as possible.

I hope you enjoy The French Wardrobe and please leave a review if you did.

Thank you!

A. R. Shaw

 

French Wardrobe Cover Reveal

The French Wardrobe Cover Reveal

Tada… Here is the cover design for The French Wardrobe. It was a tough decision and at first I thought we were headed in a very different direction entirely but after asking the design team to tweak a secondary design, the artist came up with hand drawn version and this design reflects the story so well, I was hooked.

Now, I just need to finish the story. The French Wardrobe is about a widow’s journey out of grief when her overly protective husband suddenly is taken from her. Though she’s strong in her own way, she has no idea how to cope in this new life solo. Then, strength, comes from an unlikely source. It’s a tale of finding power within in the hardest of times.

This book is considered contemporary fiction and is a departure from the type of stories I typically write. I’m hoping to write in many different genres so this will be a first, though I don’t see my writing style ever completely removed from dystopian. Call me a synic, it’s just the way I’m built.

Stay tuned and I will let you know when The French Wardrobe is soon to be released. Better yet, join my newsletter up on the right of this website and you’ll receive an email when there’s news to share.

Departure from Durham Road – New Release!

Departure from Durham Road is the second novella in the mini-series based on Steven Konkoly’s Perseid Collapse Series for Kindle Worlds.

The first book in the series, Deception on Durham Road, took a secondary character, Jamie McDaniels, and developed her story into a mini-series. The first book drew fans from both the Perseid Collapse of Steven Konkoly as well as the Graham’s Resolution series by A. R. Shaw. That is why I felt the need to write a second novella in the series and I hope Departure from Durham Road fills the fan craving for more of Jamie’s character.

Departure from Durham Road was a fun deviation from my normal genre. It’s actually a mash-up of several genres. I find her intriguing as both a mother and a survivor and hope my fans will as well.

With this new release, I am now able to focus on both Surrender the Sun, a co-book I’m writing with Steven Bird as well as a stand alone I’m really excited about. Stay tuned this year – there’ree a lot of new and exciting projects underway!

 

Just Released! The Malefic Nation by AR Shaw in Audio

That’s right! I’m happy to announce that The Malefic Nation has just been released in audio form.

This concluded Graham’s Resolution for now. It was an amazing adventure and I hope to return to Graham’s world someday.

What the World Dreads Most Happened and now Graham’s group has found a way to fight back, but is it too late? And are their methods going too far in the name of humanity? Read the conclusion of the best selling series… Graham’s Resolution, top 100 Best seller in Dystopian and Post-Apocalyptic fiction novels: A TEOTWAWKI, Prepper, medical thriller, fiction favorite, where surviving a terrorist weaponized pandemic means becoming less human and vengeance is a fight for absolute survival.


The Malefic Nation is Coming! Release Sept. 12th!

It’s finally here! The last book in the Graham’s Resolution series releases this Saturday, September 12th.

I was able to move the date up and as it turns out I will be attending the Southern Preppers Expo this Saturday in Alabama. So come down and meet me if you’re in the Oxford, Alabama area; it’s FREE to attend. I won’t have a physical copy of the paperback at that time but you can download the ebook from Amazon on that day.

It’s a bittersweet completion. I certainly feel accomplished but at the same time I’m leaving characters I’ve come to love. When I set out to write my version of a postapocalyptic adventure, I never thought it would turn out this successful. I didn’t intend to write a series, but I felt once The China Pandemic was complete that there was more to their story and so I found myself writing the rest.

Now, I’m ready to move on, sorta. I’m ready to start new projects. I’ve already begun a fresh idea. I hope that you’ll enjoy this series and realize my final goal was to show what I believed the worst catastrophe to our world would result in. I think I did that after all. There will be tremendous heartache and pain and successes coupled with grief along the way.

To me, this is the realistic version. It’s what could happen… Let’s hope it never does.

Cover Reveal & Wayward Pines Giveaway!

A few announcements. Now that The Malefic Nation is awaiting the final editing, I have all this spare time to waste? Not exactly. While the Malefic Nation is on PreSale, I’ve been busily working on another short story for Kindle Worlds. Some of you may have heard of the series by Blake Crouch. Not only is it a Kindle Worlds, it’s also been adapted to television. Wayward Pines is a hit summer TV show starring Matt Dillon. The novella for Wayward Pines will be based on the series and not the TV show, however. There are many differences between the two.

I encourage you to read the series and enjoy this world. My upcoming Kindle Worlds addition to the Wayward Pines series is titled Kate’s Redemption which will be based on the untold story of how Kate assimilated so well into Wayward Pines…or did she? Here is the cover reveal for Kate’s Redemption. I’m looking for a quick release on this one. As always, I will let you know the upcoming date.

(In addition, please wait to purchase The Malefic Nation until I give you the special upcoming pricing dates which will only be announced to those on my newsletter list.)

Also, the audiobook for The Last Infidels, narrated by Jim Cunningham will be released on Amazon, Audible and iTunes any day now and this same narrator will begin The Malefic Nation by late summer.

To celebrate Kate’s Redemption, I thought I’d run a giveaway for a Kindle ebook copy of Pines, the first book in the Wayward Pines Trilogy in anticipation of Kate’s Redemption. I’ve read the whole series as well as several of the Kindle Worlds novellas in the Kindle World. It’s unlike anything you’ve read though it’s compared to Twin Peaks. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I know you will too. Blake Crouch is a very talented author.

I wish you luck!
