New Release: NOVA VENDETTA #2: The Truce, by Michelle Levigne

The newest release in the Commonwealth Universe, from Writers Exchange:

NOVA VENDETTA #2: The Truce

Niall and his crew were just centimeters away from freedom, escaping in the stolen starship they had christened the Nova Vendetta. Then disaster struck, paralyzing their ship. Retaken as prisoners, they found themselves transported on the very ship that had been their ticket to freedom.

Then the unthinkable happened: experimental technology and a risky gamble put the ship under their control. The escaped prisoners headed for the furthest reaches of known space, determined to stay free at any cost. 

Labeled rebels and pirates and criminals, they held to the principles that had let them survive and stay Human during their time in prison. To the outlying colonies slowly being abandoned by the disintegration of the Central Allied Worlds, the crew of the Nova Vendetta and its slowly growing fleet of allies were heroes in the truest sense of the word.

Then the revolution reached out to threaten Niall's homeworld. It was time to go home. He had to protect Sorendaal, even if it meant giving himself into the hands of the very people who wanted him dead.

The NEW BOOK in the Quarry Hall series: ANNE'S OGRE

Coming in mid-October from Desert Breeze Publishing, the 7th book in the Quarry Hall series of women's fiction/suspense by Michelle Levigne:

ANNE'S OGRE

Anne has been healing from the trauma of her childhood, including facing the lawyer who defended the Ogre -- her name for the man who raped her and murdered her parents. Now, the dark, mysterious pasts of other residents of Quarry Hall are converging with her past, and she faces the greatest test of her faith and healing and strength.

George is a battered, broken man with no memory of the cold, vicious assassin he once was. Vincent, head of security for Quarry Hall and the Arc Foundation, would prefer George never remember. To everyone else, George is a fumbling, adorable, obsessive-compulsive mechanical genius, and they love him.

But when George gets his picture in a national magazine, the skeletons in the closet start rattling. Anne joins in the effort to defend George. When the Black Prince who rescued her as a child returns to her life, so does the Ogre.

In the end, no one will emerge unchanged and unscathed.

KATHRYN, Quarry Hall Book 3, by Michelle Levigne

The third book in the women's fiction series, Quarry Hall has just been released: KATHRYN.

Published by Desert Breeze Publishing.
A parallel series with Tabor Heights.

Kathryn's retreat for relaxation and contemplation is interrupted to take a fugitive to safety, beyond the reach of authorities who may be compromised. The injured woman knows her name is Regina, but not why people were shooting at her. The journey to reach a friend in the FBI is complicated when Kathryn's illness requires frequent stops, permitting Regina's pursuers to nip at their heels.
When the mountains interfere with cell reception, and she can't stop long enough to make a call for help and advice, Kathryn has only her companion dog, her own wits, and prayer to depend on. Deception waits around every corner and Regina's attitude tests Kathryn's sympathy and her faith.

Real Life Characters

Where do writers get their characters from? As the leader of a church book club I've been asked that question several times. I can't speak for everyone else but I'm guessing they come from the same place mine do--real life. Now we all know that we're creating fictional characters but the inspiration has to come from a writer's experiences to make them real.

As my editor at Martin Sisters Publishing was finishing up the last of the galley edits, she asked what I would like on the dedication page of In A Pickle. It was a no-brainer. Here's what I wrote:

For my mother, who always said she seasoned her recipes with marijuana when she really meant marjoram. 

While my character, Annie Pickels, is not like my mother was in many ways, the way my mother mixed up her words led to the what-if premise of the story. What if someone really did use marijuana, by accident, in her recipe for pickles? 

One of the other things I have to credit my mother with was her never-judge-a-book-by-its-cover philosophy. My character, Annie, looks past tattoos and metal piercings on a young man to see the potential and good in him. 

So I am wishing Mom was still around to see what I've done. She would have loved it. Her sense of humor and storytelling is still alive and thriving in the words from my keyboard.
