The Omega Series saga continues! “Silent Queen” releases March 4

The much-anticipated continuation of the Omega Series is here! As with the Omega Beginnings Miniseries, the four episodes (novelettes) in the Theta Beginnings Miniseries will be released monthly leading up to the launch of second main book in the series, “Theta.” This Miniseries is set five years before “Omega,” at the onset of the Holy Wars.

The miniseries episodes will be available in EBOOK FORMAT ONLY until all four are released, at which point, the paperback containing all the episodes will be released. The four episodes are tentatively titled: Silent Queen, Mercenary, Shadow Titan, People’s Champion. Details on the paperback will be available 30-60 days before release.

Silent Queen

Red satin ribbon curling over black background.

Summary: On the night of Crown Princess Phoibe’s coronation in New York, she is granted two guardians to assist her reign from among the many gods and goddesses in the Greek pantheon. Artemis, as expected, remains her fervent protector, but the identity of her second guardian is an unsettling omen of what is to come. His sudden involvement in her life marks dramatic change not only for her, but for the world.

No sooner is her new protector appointed than the longstanding peace between humanity and gods is shattered. The fourteen-year-old Queen of Greece faces a grim reality: there may be no one left alive to stop the gods from destroying everyone, if she doesn’t turn to her unwanted protector for help.

“The Door” by Lizzy Ford

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00048]There’s only one rule: Never lock the door

After being convicted of committing a crime in self-defense, Gianna is sent two thousand miles from her native New York to serve out her probation in the Arizona desert, isolated from everything and everyone she knows. The day she arrives, the unfriendly property owner – known only as the Caretaker – puts her to work doing maintenance on the rundown property. Gianna believes manual labor to be the worst of her problems and penance for the mistake that changed her life.

Until the strangers begin arriving. They appear every night at sundown at the end of the driveway and vanish early in the morning, armed men and women who don’t quite look or act normal and never travel in vehicles, despite the property being twenty miles from town. Where they come from, and who they are, baffle Gianna, as does the single rule the Caretaker gives her. The front door must remain unlocked and the house accessible to the dangerous visitors no matter how unusual or frightening they are.

When one of them arrives wounded, Gianna helps save him and unknowingly makes a powerful friend, one from a faraway place. In fact, from another world entirely, the world that starts at the end of the driveway. Before she can learn more, Gianna is left alone with the strangers and must choose whether she’ll take over the Caretaker’s role as hostess or return to New York and risk jail time.

In a panic, Gianna locks the front door instead.

Her world – and theirs – are about to change forever.

“Omega” by Lizzy Ford

 

Release date: October 26, 2015

Omega

Omega_mediumIn a modern world ruled by territorial Greek gods, the human race has been oppressed, exploited and now, nearly destroyed by the constant infighting of gods.

However, a human girl with the power of a goddess is coming of age. Alessandra is the Oracle of Delphi – the last prophesized – and bears the mark of the double omega. Soon after she turns eighteen, Alessandra is told her destiny: to step between the warring gods and the human race and save her world from certain ruin.

For the gods, her appearance marks the beginning of the end – their end. They and the Triumvirate – leaders of the human elite – who serve them will stop at nothing to preserve their power.

Alessandra emerges from the forest where she spent her life hidden from gods and men and immediately plummets into a race against time, gods, and herself to discover who and what she is in a world where everyone she meets has a hidden agenda, and those pulling the strings remain in the shadows.

Before she can determine exactly what kind of savior her world needs, she must first master her power by completing three trials devised by the Triumvirate to enslave her.

One lone girl stands between warring gods and the people she’s destined to protect, but it’s the battle to understand who she is that she must win first.
