Our topic at the SFF Seven this week is “My favorite great cautionary tale in the writing world.”

I could cite a lot of Great Cautionary Tales, but with NaNoWriMo (National Novel-Writing Month) on the horizon, I’m going to pick this one: Don’t Give Up.

Or, put positively, KEEP GOING!

Come on over to the SFF Seven to read more. 


A Narrow Escape 

With her secrets uncovered and her power-mad brother bent on her execution, Princess Oria has no sanctuary left. Her bid to make herself and her new barbarian husband rulers of walled Bára has failed. She and Lonen have no choice but to flee through the leagues of brutal desert between her home and his—certain death for a sorceress, and only a bit slower than the blade.

A Race Against Time 

At the mercy of a husband barely more than a stranger, Oria must war with her fears and her desires. Wild desert magic buffets her; her husband’s touch allures and burns. Lonen is pushed to the brink, sure he’s doomed his proud bride and all too aware of the restless, ruthless pursuit that follows…

A Danger Beyond Death… 

Can Oria trust a savage warrior, now that her strength has vanished? Can Lonen choose her against the future of his people? Alone together in the wastes, Lonen and Oria must forge a bond based on more than lust and power, or neither will survive the test…

  1. Please hurry with the next book in this series. Logan and Aria’ s chemistry is magical as are they.

  2. Oh, wow, I’ve been binge reading the Sorcerous Moons series, and I can’t tell you the last time I devoured a series like this. I’ve read all four of the books out in a row, with no breaks for other genres, etc. I’m the original butterfly reader so that is something. I was shocked to reach the end of book 4 because I thought somehow that the series was finished.

    So, I’m happy that there is more, but (beyond) anxious to read the rest of the story. Mostly I’m here to say ‘thank you’ and partly to ask “When is the next book coming out?” So, I’ll end with Thank you! I love this series.

    So this post is

    1. Wow – that’s the best comment to get! I’m delighted you’ve been devouring Sorcerous Moons! And I *did* think it would be finished by now, but alas, the story is taking longer to tell. The next book is a bit bumped down the line… but, summer?
