Prudence MacLeod's Writings

I write romance, sci-fi, and action/adventure. Sometimes I even blend the three just for fun.

The romance novels are listed on the left of the page. The other books are listed on the right of the page. Please enjoy. You can also check the other pages of this blog for more.

I also play a lot of World of Warcraft; if you're a player you may spot where that hobby creeps into my writing. :)

Amazing Abs.

Hi folks,

Yes, it's me (Pru) back from the land of TV. It seems that's all I've managed to do over the last two weeks is watch TV. (Gag sounds) I've been learning exactly how many body movements make use of the abdominals and where those abs pull when activated. Quite amazing really.

On the bright side, I did manage to accompany K on her walk with the dogs today. It was my first venture through the door since I fell. Dang, how good is fresh air? 

I'll keep you posted as I make my way back from the easy chair where I currently spend my days and sleep at night) to the desk (where I'd rather be, writing).

On a brighter note, Hell Comes Home is selling well and that makes up for all the bad TV I've been watching.


I wasn't able to do any writing this past week and I doubt I will do any this week coming. As you may well guess, this is driving me nuts.

Maybe I'll actually have something interesting to share by next time. Until then, may you all be blessed.

Ice is BAD

Especially when it hides under a skiff of snow... This is Charis, folks. I hijacked Pru's blog. 

Why you ask? Because Pru had an argument with gravity, and gravity added ice to the fight. Poor thing went down hard and we've tucked her into a chair with lots of pillows. (I can't prove it, she won't let me take pics of her in pain...)

Hamming it up last winter

It's been a week now, and the verdict is in. At least one cracked rib. Needless to say, sitting to the keyboard for long enough to write a cohesive post is kinda outta the question. 

Being the stubborn (and possibly bored) soul that she is, she pops in long enough to let ya'll know she's still kickin' but don't expect an overabundance of interaction for a few weeks at least. 

In the mean time, she is really excited about her latest release and would really love it if she got more reviews on it :)  
We are also working on cover art for Hunter and Novan Witch, which will be the next releases in paperback from Shadoe Publishing! 

I will pop back in periodically and keep you up to date until she can get back to her usual blogging self. Have a great day folks!

An opportunity to Effect Change

Hi Folks,

I've been asked what I mean when I say I try to educate with each novel. Okay, I'll tell you. Each story I write has something in it I want the reader to take away with them. Subconsciously. If they have an epiphany and get it, so much the better, but not necessary to enjoy the story. My latest is a case in point.

So, can a novelist actually help create change in society? Kristen Lamb's latest blog post goes into depth on this point. I do suggest you read it. Here's the link.

For me, I truly hope I can give change a nudge in the right direction. This is how I try to educate as well as entertain in my books.

ROW80 check in

So far this week is showing promise of a healthy word count. I've already hit the target for the week, now I want to push it a bit.

Here's hoping all your targets are within reach this week.

50 Shades of White

Hi Folks,

Fifty shades of white? Yep, we got snowed in this week, did you guess? When I lived in the arctic I was told the Inuit have at least that many different words for snow. I believe it. So, I got us dug out then went next door to help the neighbors. I have a snowblower, they don't.

Anyway, as I sit here, stiff shoulders aching and old knee throbbing, I count my blessings. The shoulders tell me I am alive and have worked hard, the knee says there's another storm coming. Of course there is, it is February. Blessings? Yes indeed. I am 65 and healthy, able to do this work and enjoy it. So very many are not.

Working Together

Hi Folks,

It's been an interesting few weeks for me since I signed on with a publisher. I've done a lot of re-reading, a bit of re-writing, fixes, and proofreading. Everybody has different ideas of what is important and what will make a better story. Frankie is a good example of the new and improved.

New Direction

Hi Folks,

2015 is shaping up to be a year of changes, some good, some not so much, but still lots of excitement on the go. 
The first big change was going to a publisher instead of self publishing. The plan is to upgrade all my previous work plus add lots of new stuff. Here is the first project:

Frankie is now available in paperback and e-book formats here:
