Hathor Legacy: Revelations – Book Three of the Hathor Legacy Series

An enemy returns to spark new tensions between the Guardians and Novacorp. In the midst of the crisis, Nadira is given information about her parents that threatens to destroy her relationship to the Guardians and to Jonathan.

While Nadira searches for answers, Jonathan is enticed into the hedonistic world of the Novacorp executive class. His entertainment club attracts the elite of Hathor, but his notoriety comes with a price.

The worlds of the Guardians and Novacorp are put on a collision course where only one side may come out on top. Nadira is called on to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the legacy of the First Families, the original settlers of Hathor, while Guardians, Kasema and Deshtu groups are faced with the choice to unite or be brought completely under Novacorp control.

Old scores are settled and long-hidden truths are revealed, and at the end Nadira and Jonathan’s relationship and their world will never be the same.

She opened her awareness to scan the people around her, picking up emotions and thoughts that hit her from all directions. With all the activity, it was hard to pick up any one person or thought. They flowed like powerful waves on the beach, slamming into her, then receding as she picked up the next wave of energies. Then she felt it.  A familiar energy closing in on her. Not Jonathan. It was someone else who was pursuing her like the discharge from a weapon aimed at a target.

Nadira spun around and jumped back when she saw Zina approaching, her face twisted into a frown. Well, that was normal. But it wasn't normal for Zina to be tracking her. What the hell did she want?

"Zina! Why are you following me?" Nadira asked as she grabbed her bag and held it close to her body. Her reaction had been so sudden, her travel bag had swung around and hit her in the stomach.

"Come with me. Now." Zina grabbed her arm. "I'm trying to help you. Let's go over there by the public communications booth."

"What are you talking about? Help me?" Nadira pulled away. "What's wrong with you?"

Zina grabbed her arm again. "Look, we don't want security involved. Now move!" she hissed, her breath hot against Nadira's ear.

10 things I wish I knew about being an author I didn’t know before


I've been a writer for most of my life, but I wasn't a published fiction author until about ten years ago. That's around the time I made my first sale, a short story I sold to a national tabloid. Here are ten things I didn't know before about being an author.

1. You have to get comfortable talking about your books and promoting your work. I sold my first short story when I was working in corporate. My coworkers were not impressed that I was paid "only" $200 for a 2,000-word story. The fact I'd published something meant nothing to them. After that, I was reluctant to talk about my writing. But, what I've learned is that you should always be proud of what you've accomplished.

2. You can't wait to be inspired. You have to keep writing.

3. Everyone is not going to like what you write. It may have nothing at all to do with you or your work. It's just not for them. So, stop focusing on the people who don't like what you're doing and focus on the ones who do.

4. You can't please everyone, so don’t try. (See number 3 above.)

5. If you want to make writing into a profession, you have to look at it like a business and not a hobby. Take it seriously. It really is "real" work.

6. Every idea won't make a good story. Don’t force things to fit if your ideas aren't working. Try something else.

7. Don't be afraid to make mistakes. The search for perfection can keep you from doing your best work.  

8. Be willing to write what interests you instead of chasing trends.

9. If you want to regularly publish you have to be disciplined. Have a plan and follow it. (I'm still learning this one!)

10. Don't let fear of finishing stop you from completing your work. It can be very scary to put your work into the world.  You can't control how it will be received -– no matter how many reviews, likes or follows you get. None of those things will guarantee success.


Just do the work and be willing to learn and grow as a writer.
