Joy V. Smith in the spotlight

Here’s a link to Author Spotlight: Joy V. Smith: http://morgenbailey.wordpress.com/2013/03/19/author-spotlight-no-183-joy-v-smith/

I got the chance to talk about my writing and stories.  Thanks, Morgen!  I’ll be posting links to my Pinterest boards later.  I only joined Pinterest a couple days ago; I spent a lot of time shrieking and begging for help, but I’ve got a few book covers and other things “pinned.”

Joy V. Smith’s ebooks (list)

My western novel, Detour Trail, should be available as an ebook at the usual online stores in a few weeks.  It’s available now from the publisher: http://www.melange-books.com/authors/joyvsmith/detourtrail.html

It’s an interesting addition to my other ebooks since it’s a western and my first published novel.  My other ebooks are mostly science fiction except for my non-fiction one about remodeling our new house.  Here they are:

Pretty Pink Planet
Lori, an agent of SOESFOL (Search Out and Establish Sentient Forms of Life) visits Prism, a popular tourist destination, to track down planet pirates and rescue aliens, if she can find and talk to them.

(Pretty Pink Planet is a free ebook)

Hot Yellow Planet
In the sequel to Pretty Pink Planet, Lori and Chiing continue their adventures, meeting up with Chameleons, Ghosters, Splurts, and other aliens and humans.

Remodeling: Buying and Updating a Foreclosure
How we coped with selling a house–at last, looking for a new house, buying a new house that was a foreclosure and needed lots of work, and then remodeling it since it didn’t even have a kitchen sink!

Joy’s writing news update

My latest e-book, The Doorway and Other Stories, will be available as a free download on Kindle June 8 & 9: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007SV1FB2

I’m happy to have some of my old stories in one place. Except for The Princess Quest, which is a humorous fantasy, and Old Rex, a ghost story, the rest of the stories are all science fiction adventures of different types, involving aliens, time travel, symbiotes, and humans searching for a home and/or family. All the stories have been published elsewhere–sometimes more than once–over the years, except for Royal Guardians. And you don’t need a Kindle! There’s a free app on the webpage.

In the meantime, Pretty Pink Planet is always free: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/93615 (SF) Lori, an agent of SOESFOL, visits Prism to track down planet pirates and rescue aliens.

And my other e-books include: Hidebound: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005ICFOHY (SF) After Anfissa meets Ferenc, they flee to a planet where even the grass is deadly.

Hot Yellow Planet: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/94029 (SF) In this Pretty Pink Planet sequel, Lori and Chiing continue their adventures.
