JUST RELEASED: Freeman's Choice by C.M. Simpson

C.M. Simpson's latest novel, Freeman's Choice, is now available as an ebook from Amazon and Smashwords, as a PDF from DriveThruFiction, as a print-on-demand, large-print trade paperback from the CreateSpace store. This science-fiction-fantasy blend is about journeys, the journey to freedom and safety of a couple fleeing a life of slavery, and the journey into a new era of the long-hidden folk of legend, the dragons, and the hidden alien Ancients.



When Lorellan Cartwright finds buying back the woman he loves an impossible task, he promptly steals her away, but escaping from the criminally minded third duke of Aristoc and reaching a place of safety are two very different things. And stealing from the duke embroils Lorellan and Megan in the politics of crime lords, long forgotten races of fantasy, aliens and interstellar law enforcement. Can they escape the tangled webs woven by others and find refuge? Or will they join the ranks of those who tried before and failed?

NEW COVER: Shades of Memory by C.M. Simpson

Approved last night - the cover for September's second release, C.M. Simpson's Shades of Memory, an urban fantasy thriller.



When Aggie Dormain arrives in Canberra to paint some old diggers, she does not expect to meet an out-of-work archaeologist investigating an alien conspiracy, much less to be pulled into an adventure that would give Indiana Jones a run for his money.

Knocking over those crates of beer was a death sentence. I did it on purpose, in front of everyone, and then I did the only thing I could—I ran. I think I saved the starman. Now, the only way I’ll know, is if the supply ship comes in time to drive the raiders away—and I get back out of Blacklegs’ Forest alive. Wish me luck, okay? I’m gonna need it.

NEW RELEASE:The Contract by Ellie Moonwater

The final late announcement for the day is that Ellie Moonwater's first novella in the Mentraden Training Centre series, The Contract, is now available on Amazon and Smashwords - and also available in print via the CreateSpace store.

And, for those who are curious, she has already turned in the second novella in the series, The Trading Game, which is currently scheduled for a January release.




















Blackmailed into a course on being a submissive, Eunice plans to do everything she can to keep her mother and sister safe from her greedy employer, but when she encounters the Mentraden brothers, she discovers not only a whole new world, but a whole new meaning for the word ‘trust’. The only question is: Can she trust them to look after her the way dominants should, and, more importantly, can she trust them to save her family, too?

WARNING: The Contract contains light bondage, slave-capture fantasy, multiple partners, bondage, and explicit, kinky and consensual sex. It is not suitable for readers under 18 years of age.
