Audio books and C.J Cherryh

C.J Cherryh of the Pyanfur Chanur books fame was very kind to reply to my emails yesterday regarding her Chanur series. I asked if it would be possible for her pressure her publishers into releasing proper audio versions. She replied that it would take upward pressure from places like Amazon and Audible.

I don't know if you know, but if there are books you would like to listen too, and (owned by Amazon) have an email address where you can make your requests. I have used it a few times, and after reading Cherryh's email I sent some more about her books.

She tells me that she has never had legitimate audio versions of her books available, and that piracy of her work is rampant online. Its such a shame. I have listened to many books from Audible, and some of the narrators are fantastic. They really suck you into the story. So if you love C.J Cherryh as much as i do, please use Audible and request they make her books available.

Wolf's Revenge By Mark E. Cooper

Wolf's revenge is a 388 page (print pages) novel about an alternate world where many of our myths and legends are historical fact. The Republic (United States) in my book is still the melting pot of many nations, but included in these are non-human creatures and peoples. It is about one of these that the story revolves. Shape shifters.

Wolf's Revenge is now available for kindle at Links to other versions of my books at Amazon can be found on my website at

About Wolf's Revenge (Shifter Legacies): paranormal/urban fantasy

Wolf's Revenge (Shifter Legacies)... Los Angeles, a city where monsters live cheek by jowl with humans. A city where violence simmers just below the surface. Lieutenant Christine Humber of the LAPD's robbery homicide division is well aware of that violence. She has worked for years in the city's most violent district, known locally as Monster Central. When called to a murder scene, Chris and her partner learn that the victim is a shifter -- a werewolf -- and he died hard. Chris soon realises that she has a very special serial killer loose in her city, one that is taking down Monster Central's bad boys one by one. Who or what can kill a werewolf and leave no trace? Chris and her partner race to find out.

Merkiaari Wars By Mark E. Cooper

What Price Honour is a 408 page (print pages) sci-fi novel set in the future. Earth has colonised many planets and is now the capital of the Human Alliance of Worlds, an organisation created in desperate times to fend off the murderously vicious Merkiaari. The story begins on a border world called Thurston hundreds of years after the last alien incursion, where Gina Fuentez and her platoon of Alliance Marines are on a mission to extract an undercover operative from terrorist camp.

About What Price Honour (Merkiaari Wars): military sci-fi

What Price Honour (Merkiaari Wars)... Humanity's last encounter with aliens saw six point two billion people killed in a war with the Merkiaari that had spanned decades. Only by the grace of God and the use of nanotechnology were they defeated. The result of that nanotech? Vipers, a regiment of super soldiers tasked with protecting the Alliance and annihilating the Merki. It was a job they performed with distinction, a job they completed almost two centuries ago. A job that had cost them their humanity.

Thurston is an unimportant border world with a problem, a Marine type problem. Not the sort of place Gunnery Sergeant Gina Fuentez expected to find one of the fabled Viper cyborgs, but that's just what she discovers when a simple mission to extract an operative from a terrorist camp leads to a firefight and two of her squad dead. With friends dying around her and a world coming apart at the seams, Gina must decide if the Marine Corps is really her home, or just a stopping place to where she really belongs.

The Devan Chronicles by Mark E. Cooper

My name is Mark E. Cooper, and I'm the author of six titles. Four are solidly in the epic fantasy genre, while the other two are different. One is military sci-fi, and the other is paranormal/urban fantasy. The Devan Chronicles are available now in kindle, published just last week, at Links to other versions of my books at Amazon can be found on my website at

About The Devan Chronicles: epic fantasy genre

Book one of The Devan Chronicles is called The God Decrees... Lord Keverin is desperate to save his people and the kingdom he serves from the sorcerers of the Protectorate. A spell is cast to bring a champion to Lord Keverin's aid, but something goes wrong and a Julia Morton suddenly finds herself stranded on an alien world with no friends and no way home. This book introduces us to the land of Deva while we follow Julia through a war torn kingdom, as she makes friends and enemies alike. Can she learn to harness magic to save herself and those she comes to love?

Book two of The Devan Chronicles is called The Power that Binds...  a year on from Julia Morton’s arrival at Fortress Athione, an uneasy truce is being maintained between Deva and her enemies, but the Protectorate never rests. Believing himself destined to rule, Lord Mortain unleashes General Navarien upon the north in an effort to bypass Julia’s guardianship of Deva’s western borders. Can Julia persuade the lords to act, or must she resort to force and magic?

Book three of the Devan Chronicles is called The Warrior Within... Julia Morton, sorceress of Athione, has been saved from her abductors at Kerrion's insistence by warriors of his Clan. Grateful to be alive, but not yet well from her ordeal, Julia swears to repay her debt by destroying Kerrion's enemies once and for all.

Book four of the Devan Chronicles is called Dragon Dawn... The war rages on and General Navarien is advancing into Deva despite all the clans and Julia can do. King Gylaren must march north to oppose the invasion, but it takes time to muster the army, and there is no time. With war in the north, and Japura now allied with dark Tindebrai, Gylaren sends his son and heir on a desperate mission to seek aid. Can anything stop the juggernaut of war that is Navarien's legion?

I hope you enjoy reading them as much as i enjoyed writing them :)
