MARIA SIOPIS signs with SHADOE PUBLISHING!

Marie

Maria Siopis possesses an MPA in Emergency Management and Homeland Security. She completed her dissertation, “Avian Influenza (H5N1): The Doctrine of Social Disassociation, Quarantine, and Emergency Preparedness,” in 2006 tackling a non-fictional theme. Other than writing she obsesses over climatic or manmade catastrophes and continuously attempts to conceptualize needed actions. The author lives in New York and is currently working on her second novel.

Her FIRST novel with Shadoe Publishing, due out later this month is THE WORLD THAT WILL NEVER BE!  A alternate-reality novel, we are looking forward to presenting to you!

The World That Will Never Be 1

The world where the straights are hated for hundreds of years is about to turn for the worse, and shatter to pieces. The involvement of Eliza X, a police officer, in the killing of a straight, Jeffrey Antinoro, becomes the singular event and the catalyst that sends humanity into a tailspin. A revolution erupts and Eliza is the sole cause of it. Nevertheless, her journey forces her to rediscover herself and find love in the arms of her professor Linda Pelc. Together they’ll try to redefine the human capacity of acceptance and denounce a world that is full of lies, deception and hatred. Are they going to save the straights or are the forces that seek their demise stronger? Who is going to be victorious when the revolution erupts between the gays and straights? Is the fiber of humanity saved at last or will the dark powers of prejudice and hate prevail?

Vetted by K’Anne Meinel

 

Vetted Final Cover

Allyssa is a young college student living her life to please her upper-crust family who want her to take business courses, join her father’s business, and marry the “right” man.  Allyssa loves animals and yearns to take courses that speak to her heart, but her family are deaf to her pleas and she is unable or unwilling to stand up to them.

Fiona is an older, more established woman; a veterinarian working towards the goal of starting her own large animal practice.  When a young woman arrives on her doorstep one night carrying a dog she may have fatally injured with her car, Fiona is thrown for a loop.

Vetted—a life that neither woman anticipated, but each learns they want desperately.

Will their families, the fates, and rustlers finally bring these women to their knees?  The only way they can survive is to stand strong together, but are they both ready to fight for what they want?  Only time will tell….

The Nova Series

It all started with one book, The Novan Witch.

Novan Witch

It was such an odd thing to most people. Arlessa, the most powerful witch in generations, High Priestess of the Borelian Temple, was in hiding, serving on the battlefield as a healer/dispatcher. They did not know, could not know, that for Arlessa to return to the Temple would mean spending the rest of her life in a marriage she did not want or in a prison from which there would be no escape.

Those who hunted her did not know, could not know, she intended to return, but in her own time and on her own terms. When that day arrived they would face a power they did not dream existed, a power that would tear apart their carefully constructed society. The Black Witch of Nova would come, and their world would fall.

If you like the combination of fantasy and science fiction, then this series is for you!  A witch, a clan, and all in space…let her take you there!  For a short time we are offering via Amazon the first in this delightful series for only .99!  The rest, the price of a Starbucks coffee at $4.99!  Check them out!  (Just click on the picture to be taken to Amazon to purchase your e-book copy!) They are also available in paperback!

Assassin of Nova: He sacrificed his humanity to save his loved ones. The Company left them to die. Now he’s looking for revenge. The utter destruction of everything the Company holds dear. The Company’s CEO has a daughter. A child for a child, if Rathbone can survive the hunt for her.

When she turns out to be the companion of the Black Witch of Nova, Rath might have to find a new target. He has certainly found a new army, a new purpose, a new lease on life, and most importantly, a new family.

Assassin of Novablobline

Beyond Nova: Out beyond Nova Prime, at the very tip of the galactic arm, a single star clings tenuously to its hold on the galaxy. Circling that lonely star is a planet called Exile, where the R.I.M. Company sends its biggest failures, its greatest secrets.

Those secrets are about to be revealed. The Novan Witch and her hounds have a mission there; someone they need to find. This could tear the Galactic Empire apart.

Beyond Nova

Claimstake: If the Novans thought their victory in the Galactic War would allow them a lifetime of peace, they were wrong. Enemies are popping up everywhere, suspicions abound, and they are left with nowhere to go.

When the Novan Witches blew apart a sun they created a gap in space-time-reality. That gap is growing and now they have nowhere else to go. Can they survive in the Gap? Claimstakeblobline

Red Nova

Red Nova: Deep in the Gap where time and space don’t follow the rules, Deann of Nova stumbles on a group of people who claim to be her descendants.  Now she has to keep them alive, escape the time ship that imprisons them all, and prevent the total annihilation of Sector Nine and the Borelian Clans.  A mighty task, even for the matriarch of Red Nova.
