Don't Have a Kindle--No Problem!

Don't Have a Kindle?


Some people don't read Kindle books because they don't own a Kindle Reader. That's okay. Not everyone wants one. Or they prefer to use their own devices, such as a smartphone, Nook, iPad, tablet, Mac, or PC. So what do those people do when they want to read a Kindle only book?

Read Kindle Books without a Kindle


Amazon has this covered. They created the Kindle App which works on multiple platforms for anyone who prefers not to own a Kindle. They provide training on how to use the app on different devices. Even people who own the Kindle may want to read books in a larger format. People like me who sometimes have to enlarge the text size enough that not much fits on the Kindle screen. I have a Kindle, but sometimes, when I am tired, the text blurs on it. Please note: It isn't the Kindle blurring. It's my eyes.

At those times, if I need or want to read, I go to my laptop or my PC and use the Kindle app. The Kindle app lets me access any books in my Kindle library and read on a larger screen. Actually, my favorite place to read Kindle books is on my PC screen. I can grab a few minutes between projects and work to read a bit, then get back to work. I work at home and am my own boss, so keep that in mind when you use the App on your PC. A boss might not find it amusing to see you reading when you are supposed to be working.

And the best part? The Kindle App is free to anyone with an Amazon account. So, if you want to read Kindle books, but don't have the right hardware, get the Kindle App and read on whatever device you have.

How Do I Get Kindle App?


Click on Kindle App to go to the Amazon page where you select the OS or device you want to use, then follow directions.

Lynn Nodima: Back on Track

I'm Back on Track


This past month has been rough. In addition to finalizing work on an editing contract, the flu, or something very like it, has made the rounds throughout the house.

Now, with nothing left but a residual cough, everyone is getting better.

This week, I have hit the 29,000-word mark in my WIP book, Wolf's Reign. I still have the major conflict to write, but it's almost done. I will get this done as quickly as I can.

New Banner

I created a new banner image for this blog. It felt too much to have all the books in my series staring at visitors the first time they visited the blog. Since this is my writer's blog, rather than just a series blog, I changed the banner to reflect my name instead of book covers. I would love some feedback. Is it better? Worse? Added pages provide permanent access to more information about my books and short stories.

Off to work!

Texas Ranch Wolf Pack Book Series Cover Changes

Series Book Cover Changes



After consulting with other authors and some book cover designers, I decided to change the covers of the Texas Ranch Wolf Pack Series books.

Thanks to Members of the Guerrilla Publishing: Book Marketing Support and Feedback for Authors 


I want to thank all the writers and book cover designers in the Guerrilla Publishing: Book Marketing Support and Feedback for Authors Facebook group, with special thanks going to Derek Murphy. Derek is the administrator of the Facebook group, the author of Guerilla Publishing: Dangerously Effective Writing and Book Marketing Strategies, and is a book cover designer, too. If you want to learn more about Derek and the helps he offers other writers, you can check out his blog. The help I receive from Derek and his group is fantastic. If you are a struggling author, the Facebook group is well worth looking into.

I hope to have book 6 in the series, Wolf's Reign, finished by the 10th of December. While this title is what I have planned from the beginning, I am now thinking of changing the title. I'll let you know if that happens.

Please note that the links in the previous blog post still work, even if the image is the old image.

Wolf's Reign Update & Links to Read Free Chapters of Previous Books

Wolf's Reign Update & Links to Read Free Chapters of Previous Books in the Series


Wolf's Reign Update

Today, I passed the 11,000 word mark in book 6 of the Texas Ranch Wolf Pack series. My goal is to publish by the end of the first week in December, if not before. 

I am excited that new characters have jumped into the story, including a possible love interest for Paige Marston, a former Black Forest Huntman who now works to stop the evil vampire V-Triumph.

Nate finally understands what's holding him back from accepting the responsibility of the crown.

Alphas from around the world, including the Serengeti Pride, the Gir Forest Pride, the Kanha Tiger Ambush, the Siberia Tiger Ambush, the Sorneo Clouded Leapard Leap, The Tennessee Highland Rim Pride, the Daegu Vixen Skulk, the Amazon Basin Jaguars, and the Alberta Pumas, as well as the Colorado and Oklahoma Wolf Packs, come to Texas to decide on who will be crowned the Alpha Were King, King of all Were.

But the Triumvirate, secret members of the V-Triumph, send Black Forest Huntsmen to stop the coronation. The vampires can't rule the world, if the were are united under one king. One king who will stop at nothing to protect humanity from the V-Triumph vampires. Will Nate and the Were succeed, or will the vampires turn the humans of Earth into fodder?

The entire series is in Kindle Unlimited, so that subscribers can read for FREE. Others pay only $2.99 per book. 

To give you a taste of the series, I have posted some free chapters from each book. Click the book's title below to travel to that specific blog post.

Wolf’s Man 

Read the first chapter!

Hunted…

She's the last of her pack and frantic to evade the clawed-death of the werepanthers stalking her.

San Antonio Police Detective Nate Rollins is on a forced vacation when he rescues a blonde woman terrified of something he doesn't understand.

Temporarily, Nate gets her away from the two men trying to kill her. His first thought is to take her into protective custody until he can unravel her mysteries. 

But things are not as they seem. Nate, a retired Marine, has a secret even he doesn't know. A secret that could be even more dangerous to all humans than the werepanthers are to Janelle.

Will Nate be able to save Janelle? Or are they both destined for the same fate as her pack?

This is a novella of 35,689 words.

No sex or profanity.


Wolf’s Claim 

Read the first two chapters!

When human-raised Nate mates with Janelle and becomes Alpha to the Texas Ranch Wolf Pack, he knows his life will change forever. He just doesn't know how much . . ..

Then the Were Council, Rulers of Were, decrees death to an entire werepanther clowder for crimes their dead Queen committed. As a cop, Nate defended helpless people. When the new Queen asks Nate for sanctuary, how can he turn her away?

But it isn't easy combining a pack of werewolves and a clowder of werepanthers when both sides fear the other. Especially when Lycos, ancient King of Were appears . . ..

This is the second novella in the Texas Ranch Wolf Pack series.

No sex or profanity.


Wolf’s Mission

Read the first two chapters!

The president's life depends on the rescue of a werewolf . . ..

Black Forest Huntsmen capture a werewolf's daughter to force him to commit treason.

To prevent the president's assassination, resulting in a human/were war, her father asks Nate, a powerful Alpha, and his foster-brother Eli, a human changeling werewolf, to save her. With just two days to rescue her and stop the Huntsmen's dire plan, the two werewolves, both elite soldiers, rush to rescue her. 

Black Forest Huntsmen hunt werewolves. Their goal? 

Hunt them to extinction. For two centuries, werewolves migrated to the United States to escape the Huntsmen. After three generations, the Huntsmen are only stories that frighten young werewolves. 

But the Huntsmen are real.

And if the Black Forest Huntsmen force the girl's father to assassinate the president, a human/were war may erupt. 

Eli and Nate must do everything in their power to rescue the girl and defuse the situation. Will they be in time to prevent the human/were war the Huntsmen are attempting to start? 

Or is the future drenched in the blood of innocent humans and werewolves?

No sex or profanity.


Wolf’s Huntsman 

Read the first three chapters!

Black Forest Huntsmen intend to take over the U.S. government. 

Nate and Eli, both elite soldiers and Royal Alpha werewolves, strive to assert their dominance over werewolves, werepanthers, and other were in time to safeguard them from this hidden foe.

Events culminate in the discovery of a plot so insidious, so catastrophic that, if not foiled, will poise all were on the brink of annihilation and thrust humankind into perpetual servitude.

No sex or profanity.


Wolf’s Trust 

Read the first two chapters!

Evil must be contained. Compromised Huntsmen must die . . .

The Triumvirate, Commanders of the Black Forest Huntsmen, teach their hunters that werewolves are evil, human-eating animals.
 
When a Huntsman is captured by werewolves, the Triumvirate sends Zoe to kill the compromised hunter and destroy the pack.
 
But her efforts result in a traumatic head injury. Daryll, an Enforcer for the Texas Ranch Wolf Pack ensures Zoe gets medical treatment. Why would the evil were help her?
 
Believing Zoe, too, is compromised, a Huntsman attacks her in the emergency room. Daryll saves her, and Zoe's confusion grows.
 
Then Zoe learns the Triumvirate aren't the saviors of humankind she believes them to be. Will she follow her heart to help Daryll and the pack in their efforts to stop the Triumvirate?
 
Or will she blindly follow orders to destroy the pack?

This novel contains 44,399 words.

No sex or profanity.


Wolf’s Reign Coming Soon!

Cover Reveal: Wolf's Regin

Cover Reveal: Wolf's Reign (Texas Ranch Wolf Pack Series)


After a lot of thought, I decided the cover I had previously selected for Wolf's Reign, the last book in the Texas Ranch Wolf Pack series, was not what I wanted. You can see the first version in the header (until I have time to change it out, anyway!)

I spent some time to reworking it, and came up with this design.

While I like the first version of the cover, the story is about Nate coming into his birthright. It didn't seem right for the cover to also feature his brother, Eli.

Chapter 1 is complete and I have started chapter 2.

As usual, life happened, and I had to put writing on hold for a while to take care of family, but I'm back and working hard today.

Leif Eriksson Day Sale on Wolf's Sorrow

Leif Eriksson Day Sale (Oops! A Day Late!)

I'm so clueless that I didn't know October 9 was Leif Eriksson Day until it was too late to put my new short story, Wolf's Sorrow on sale.

Wolf's Sorrow is about Thorkell Leifsson, Lief Eriksson's son. In my tale, some of the Vikings, including Leif and Thorkell, are werewolves, or shifters.

Thorkell will one day be the oldest living werewolf, and will have a part to play in three of the books in the Texas Ranch Wolf Pack Series.

So, since I missed the actual day, I decided to have a giveaway instead! Wolf's Sorrow is FREE October 10 and 11 for Kindle! If you read it, please leave a review. It will help other readers know if they want to read it, too.  Thank you in advance!

Wolf's Sorrow: A Texas Ranch Wolf Pack Short Story

Wolf's Sorrow: The first Texas Ranch Wolf Pack Short Story Published

Wolf's Sorrow: The First Texas Ranch Wolf Pack Short Story


Wolf's Sorrow has published earlier than planned and is in ebook format only. It tells of the early life of Snarl, a character in Wolf's Huntsman and Wolf's Trust.

Snarl will be a major player in the final book of the Texas Ranch Wolf Pack Series. This story explains more about the events Snarl told Nate and Eli in Wolf's Trust.

Future Plans for Short Stories


The other short stories I have planned at this point are Ben's and Dottie's story, Dusty's and Nettie's story, and Peyton's and Gisele's story.

Jonathan will have a story, too, though as yet he hasn't told me who he likes. He will. He's just being stubborn. I'll post on the blog when one is coming up so you will know.

The characters in this series are so much fun to write about. The first series is almost done, but I am already toying with the idea of a second based on the teens in the first series. As the cliche goes, only time will tell.
