Pay It Forward Friday: Luther M. Siler

Pay It Forward Fridays came from this post by Emily Guido. The idea is to feature a blogger or author on Fridays and give them a little shoutout. Anyone goes as long as they’re interested.

I’ve received an incredible amount of support from bloggers, authors and people I’ve met on line who didn’t know me and were just very kind, supportive souls. And, when I read that post by Emily Guido, I thought: time to give back.

I loved this quote from Emily’s mother:

“I cast a couple of pieces of bread on the water and the waves bring me back a ham sandwich.”

Karma is a beautiful thing.

Today I’m focusing on Luther M. Siler.

He says of himself:

“Luther Siler was born in 1976 in northern Indiana, where he currently resides along with his wife, three-year-old son, two cats, and two dogs. In his spare time he works at a school helping other people be awesome. His favorite authors include John Scalzi, N.K. Jemisin, Brandon Sanderson, Cherie Priest, Salman Rushdie, Mira Grant/Seanan McGuire, H.P. Lovecraft, Robert Howard, John Irving, Nnedi Okorafor, Saladin Ahmed, Helene Wecker and Stephen King.

He writes about space gnomes and Mars. His novel SKYLIGHTS and his short story novella THE BENEVOLENCE ARCHIVES: VOL. 1 are both available on Amazon now. Another book in the BENEVOLENCE ARCHIVES universe, as yet untitled, is expected early next year.”

Luther has written two books so far:

They’re both available on Amazon. Click on either cover.

But that’s not all. Luther has written a ton of short fiction and is going to be a part of an upcoming collaborative work titled World Unknown Review with a group of other authors.

Personally, I’ve read Luther’s writing and find it highly addictive not only because it’s lively, fun and so easy to read but because his humour is contagious. Rare is the day when I don’t read his blog posts at Infinitefreetime.com. If you’re a fan of science fiction, check out his books at amazon and you’ll see why everyone’s ranting about them.

August 15, 2022: the Tycho, the most advanced interplanetary craft ever designed by the human race, launches from Earth on an expedition to Mars. The Tycho carries four passengers, soon to be the most famous people in human history. 

February 19, 2023: The Tycho loses all communication with Earth while orbiting Mars. After weeks of determined attempts to reestablish contact, the Tycho is declared lost. 

2027: Journalist Gabriel Southern receives a message from a mysterious caller: “Mars.” Ezekiel ben Zahav isn’t talking, but he wants Southern to accompany him for something– and he’s dangling enough money under his nose to make any amount of hardship worth it.  

SKYLIGHTS is the story of the second human expedition to Mars.  Their mission: to find out what happened to the first.

It’s available on Amazon here and on Smashwords here.

 

The Magic Spark by Mishka Jenkins.

Blurb:

Successful businesswoman Alex is content with her life in London, and any ideas of romance have been left on the back burner. But when her fairy godmother, FG, waltzes into her office one morning announcing she has come to help Alex rekindle a passion for life and love, she is about to check herself into therapy!

The fairy godmother’s incessant wand-flicking soon lands them in the isolation of the Scottish highlands, where Alex’s next client, Mal Ross, not only stirs her professional interest but her romantic ones too. 

Tasked with the enormous challenge of turning a historic castle into a flourishing hotel, the pair must work closely together whilst attempting to avoid the awkward situations the rom-com obsessed fairy godmother keeps forcing them into.

But the path of love is never smooth, no matter how much magic you throw at it.

It’s available on Amazon here and on Smashwords here.

 

Two brand new books from two very kind people who happen to be amazing authors. Why don’t we send them a little love and help promote their books?

SKYLIGHTS cover reveal!

Big congrats to Infinitefreetime for his second book. The cover looks incredible and I’m sure the book will be just as amazing.

There was a buzz in my ear.  It was him again.  I set the iLid to record and answered the call. 

“Gabe Southern.”

“I know your name, dummy,” the voice on the other end said.  He was youngish, maybe, his voice more high-pitched than it probably ought to be.  Speaking fast, as if he felt like he had more important things to do than talk to me, or maybe he’d just been drinking too much coffee. …
