My latest releases

They are available now from Melange Books.
*Bullet of Revenge (A non-erotic thriller0
*Iceworld (Book six in my Xandra series. Science Fiction)
*Time Flares (A collection of short stories. Various genres)

It is unfortunate that all three books have been released at the same time, but I have to deal with this now. It is difficult to promote three books at once. Which one do I concentrate on? I love each one. I enjoyed writing them and I love looking at the beautiful cover pictures.

Bullet of Revenge is a mystery thriller featuring a new character: PI Frank Hummer. He is a tough guy on the outside, but deep down he has a soft heart. He's trying to forget his violent past. He wants to change but finds it difficult, because violence and problems follow him. When he takes on a new case he is pulled into a conspiracy he cannot escape.
There is no explicit sex in this novel, but it contains violence and coarse language. It was fun to write this book and who know, there might even be a second book in the future. It all depends how this one sells, but then again, I don't really write for the money ^-^. If I get some ideas I will write it.

Iceworld is number six in my Xandra series. It tells the story of a group of scientist stranded on the fifth planet in the star system of the Xandra World. They are mentioned in the first book and I thought it may make a good story. As it happened, the whole idea turned into four books. I'm presently writing the seventh book in the series. No title yet. I love the cover. I have to admit it is one of my favorite book covers so far.

Time Flares is an anthology of previously published short stories. They are scattered in various digests and probably forgotten by now, so I thought it may be a good idea to publish them in one volume. It contains my very first published short story, The Anniversary Gift, the story that launched my career as a published writer.
It also contains the story Time Flares.

In order to celebrate the release of all these stories I am giving away a few free pdf copies to anyone who wants them. Just send me an email to hegro@shaw.ca and mention which ones you are interested in.
