Wind Follower


http://www.juno-books.com/windfollower.html
A fourth tribe has come to the land of the three tribes; the light-skinned newcomers are fated to change the tribes' way of life and religion. Satha, a dark-skinned woman from a poor Theseni clan, and Loic, her wealthy young Doreni husband, are too busy forging their new life together to pay much heed. But when Satha is dishonored and Loic must avenge her, they find themselves drawn into a cultural battle. Kidnapped and enslaved, Satha strives to retain her autonomy. Loic struggles against the Arkhai, spirits who fear his his quest will lead him to the true god whose place they have usurped. With the Creator's aid there remains hope they will be reunited and find their mutual destiny, even if it means losing the love and respect of their comrades, families, clans, and tribes.

I also have a Bible study up at lulu: "Basics in Bible Study"

Thanks for sharing the link to Monique Henry-Hudson's work. Somehow I couldn't follow the e-mail link back to the animators group but glad I looked you up directly on the membership list. Just sent a connection request and will be checking out your work :)

 

Going to connect with her as well. Please take a look at my portfolio as well when you get a minute.

Hello, I want to thank you for posting the list of sci-fi and fantasy writers list on amazon.com where I've discovered many writers that are ironically on this site! I had no idea so many authors such as yourself existed. A few months ago I was drawn to Wind Follower because of the beautiful cover and picked it up on amazon. I have not yet read it but it is definitely on my to do list!

Carole,
I remember seeing your book cover at a book event last year (I love the design). I think it might have been BEA. Charles Saunders introduced me to this site. Who knew that I would find you here? I love the whole Wind Follower concept! I want to make it a point to get it on my June reading list. My literary non-profit is working with the Omaha Public Library Foundation on a fundraising project that will highlight African-American speculative fiction authors. I would definitely like to talk to you to see if you are interested. Participation is simple, free and doesn't require attendance. I hope to talk to you soon.

Sleuthing Antimatter...

Two white dwarfs head toward a collision in this artist’s illustration. New research suggests that the Milky Way's preponderance of positrons could come from a specialized type of supernova from colliding low-mass white dwarfs — an explosion that is difficult to detect, but rich in an isotope that generates this kind of antimatter.

Aluna's Encounter: The Fissure

Posted by Lauren on May 23, 2017 at 1:13pm 0 Comments

I planted my feet firmly on the ground. I never felt more connected to the planet where I stood than where I was right then in that moment. I took in a large, deep breath. It felt like I was breathing in the essence of crisp fresh snow.

And then I released.

This part of the plateau no one was allowed near. Off to the distance, I could see our city, Sheba, the buildings were made of gold and the streets were littered with diamonds and gems.

I zipped my jacket up and hid behind a large rock and waited.

The reason why people weren't allowed out this far from Sheba was because of the instability of the terrain. The scientists said that our world sometimes would converge with another world; a more dangerous world.

But this terrain was also where the agents came in and out of around this time of the evening. I wanted to see who they were bringing back this time.

A crackling of lightning and static happened…

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
