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 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?

Several years ago an author and editor approached Shadoe Publishing about taking on another author’s work. Knowing nothing about this author, we ‘met’ on Skype to discuss the possibility of her signing with Shadoe Publishing. She stated she wanted forty of her books out in paperback within a year…um, yeah. We were very excited, but decided on about twenty at first, to see how it went. Well, that many books takes a long time. You see, the editor had to edit them (of course), the illustrator had to make up all the new covers for her stories, the proofreaders and beta readers all had to go over the books, one by one, before we allowed them to be formatted and released….
It took several years to come out with the FIRST forty, but here we are already on the 44th… AT LOOSE ENDS will be coming out in about a week. We MUST be doing SOMETHING write, um, er, right? In the meantime, to CELEBRATE, we are discounting ALL of Prudence MacLeod’s books until the end of the month. For the price of a Starbucks cup of coffee, you can read her fantastic stories. From lesbian romance, to lesbian science fiction and fantasy, to transgender stories that will take you places you haven’t realized you wanted to go…yet.
Below are all the covers of her first 43 books with Shadoe Publishing…we’ll show you the next one soon…meanwhile, on Amazon for the rest of this month you can read her fabulous books at a discount to celebrate this incredible achievement!
Thank you in advance for your patronage and enjoy your reads!
