Doing My Part

Yes, Ladies and Gents, both my opening books from two new series are now live and in living color on Amazon!

I can hardly believe it myself! Truly. This has been a long road, but it's only just beginning.

As you can see, both of these are Book 1's in two brand new series.

The first, The Spi-Corp Series is currently 17 books long. It's Sci-Fi Romance and with the exception of one or two, all of them are currently written and just awaiting clean up, covers, formatting and then release.


Janel Canton must be pregnant by the time Fleet Commander Pearson Acto catches up to her again and only one man will do for that. Her one true love, sexy Montana Sheriff Jake Reeves. But returning to Earth she finds he's still mourning his dead wife and has become very comfortable with small-town life. Will introducing him to reality of the Universe be enough for him to move on to a new life?

Sheriff Jake Reeves never thought the nerdy girl he and his cronies picked on in High School would someday become a star ship captain capable of holding her own in just about any situation. But when he meets up with Janel again at their 20 year reunion, that's exactly what he finds! Gone is the nerdy little mouse that never fought back. In it's place, is a rough and tumble, no holds barred, drop-dead gorgeous woman who he's going to have one hell of a time not falling in love with...

The second, The Layren Series, is planned for at least six books. It's Paranormal Romance and while I only have the first written, I've got time for the others.


Kathy Granite is not your ordinary writer. She's a Weaver - a spinner of great tales and has the ability to write or rewrite the history of a world. Only one problem, she doesn't know it. She's spent the last six years telling the stories of people dragged to Earth from a variety of places by her Layren Protector, Ronon Wulfdrak.

Ronon has spent that same time keeping Kathy in the dark and only brought her people who simply want their story told. He's carefully chosen who would appear and even though she's become quite the sensation in our world, she's clueless as to her effect on any others. Ronon aims to keep it that way and hopes she's safely hidden from his own people. For, if anyone finds out what she really is, they will tear her apart to get at her power.

Anyway, that's not why I've asked you to stop by my blog today. No, really, it's not.

The real reason I wanted you to stop by was because I want to explain what I'm going to do with these two works. (Aside from dance around my chair today in gleeful joy that they're finally live!)

Many years ago, I drove an 18-wheeler. I went from coast-to-coast, hauling everything from ice-cream cones (I kid you not!) to toilet paper and everything in between. On one such trip, right around this time of year, I was passing through Oklahoma, dead center through Tornado Alley!

Anyway, on this particular trip, me and my poor 1979 International were chased by an F-1 Tornado. Yes, you heard that right, we were chased, not the other way around! I won't bore you with the details, I really won't because even today, it gives me the willies!

I survived, but it's always left an impression and a healthy respect for the undeniable power of nature! I have seen and felt, first hand, what these monsters can do and how helpless you are against them.

So, with that said, for the entire month of June, $1.00 from every sale of these books will be donated to the Red Cross to help the victims in Moore, OK and surrounding areas.

I ask that you spread the word. Tweet it, Blog it, Facebook it, send carrier pigeons and let everyone know about this. Let's help these people in the wake of this devastation.

If you don't feel like helping me do it, then please, donate a buck or two directly to the Red Cross!

But, if you're so inclined to go this route, you can pick up your copy of either work, here:

A First Love Never Dies - Book 1 of The Spi-Corp Series


Wolf's Paradox - Book 1 of The Layren Series

Oh, and check back next week for an ultra-cool giveaway where these two are concerned. I'm going to have some awesomely sweet swag to share with you! So, pick up a copy today, of either work depending on your tastes in reading, enjoy it and we'll see you soon!

Thanks, as always, for stopping by my little corner of the Blog-O-Sphere!

Until next time,

Margaret Taylor


  1. Congrats on your books coming out! I shared your efforts on behalf of Okla. on FB. :)

    1. Why thank you Ms. Mel! I can always count on you my dear friend!

  2. Congratulations on your new books and I shared on Facebook and Twitter:)

    1. Why thank you Ms. Paris. Every share/tweet helps!

  3. A bit late reading this but I did grab a copy of both books. Congratulations and I hope you sell a couple of million copies.

    1. Oh Ms. Ck, thank you so much for stopping by and grabbing a copy of both! It is much appreciated! And I hope I sell a couple of million copies too! That would definitely help the people in OK, wouldn't it?

  4. Wonderful gesture, Margaret! Proves that the power of the written can go beyond a bit of escapism for a reader I did the same thing after Hurricane Katrina because my first book was set in New Orleans. Had a book signing scheduled at The Court of Two Sisters in the French Quarter, where I'd set a scene in the book. It would have been my first book signing and I was so excited! It never came about because Katrina hit the month before. Happily the Quarter was revived not too long after the hurricane, The Court of Two Sisters included. Congratulations on your double release. Such an event definitely deserves at least one long happy dance!

    1. Well thank you Ms. Polly. Believe me, after fighting with Amazon for two days to get them both up and going, I did just that.

      I was very close to moving to New Orleans for my day job about three months before Kat hit. I know now why I declined the position...:D I'd have been smack in the middle of it! I just can't seem to win with weather sometimes!

      I do so thank you for stopping by and helping me pay it forward too!
