TIMELABS Inc. by L.V. Lloyd

Isn’t it amazing how time flies? It’s almost April already!  There’s so much to do, it makes me wish for a timemachine. That would be handy, huh?

TimeLabs Inc is a collection of six science fiction short stories, all with a romantic theme. Now available for purchase on Amazon for 99c! Enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.

About the Author

After thirty years of working with the unemployed, coping with threats, tears and broken lives (and these were only from fellow staff), LV Lloyd decided it was time to make her escape. And what better place to go than the world of m/m romance? She started writing Dangerous Tension, her first ebook in the Aurigan Space Saga, years ago, but put it aside due to work and family commitments.

In 2012, she dusted off the foolscap pages stored under her bed, finished the story and turned it into a book. Since then, she has written five more ebooks in the Aurigan Space Saga series, and numerous short stories. Her latest work, Gothic Romance is a venture into a new genre, Historical Romance.

LV Lloyd lives in Adelaide, Australia, with her family and two cats. In her spare time she enjoys fishing and visiting the many local wineries.

I have some news… and a newsletter!

I’m going to be a dedicated blogger. I have literally just finished speaking to N.R. Walker, (over a glass of wine and dinner) about blogging and how she comes up with blog post topics, so I’m going to do my damnedest to keep everyone informed, even if it’s just a quick update on what I’ve been working on or random pic of my office.

Okay, so it’s not really news, but there you go.

On a different note, if you get bored of pics of my laptop but still want to be notified when I have a book coming out,  you can sign up to my newsletter here. This is where I’ll post news about any new releases or giveaways.

In the meantime, did you see that As the Sun Sets was released last month? If you were wondering about Noah’s ex (from As the Leaves Fall) and why he was a total arse, this is his story. It’s really interesting to find out what makes a person tic, don’t you think?

Make sure you check out the whole series if you haven’t already.

Read for free on KU or purchase here.

Yes, you read that right. Out of the Blue has been removed from all sales sites and is undergoing a rewrite and re-edit. I’m obviously a sucker for punishment. LOL. I’m running a fine-toothed comb and a red pen through it. The original story will remain intact; Cam and Jake will still go through hell before they get their HEA, but the writing will be smoother and more consistent. Scenes may be added or removed, depending on what I feel the story needs. I will release it again later this year with a new cover too.

Stay tuned. I’ll announce a date as soon as I can.

As the Sun Sets – Release Day!!!

It’s so exciting! It’s release day for As the Sun Sets!

I enjoyed writing this story. The characters made me laugh and cry, like most of my characters do. But what I really enjoyed about writing this story was Happy, the miserable looking elderly Labrador. You’ll have to read it to see what I mean. I’m sure you’ll love him as much as Scott and Ben do.

Get your copy of As the Sun Sets here. Exclusive to Kindle Unlimited.

Happy reading all!

I’m opinionated, you just didn’t know it.

I need to apologise first and foremost. I have not blogged in ages, and I have no excuse. I’m a lazy blogger. There, I admitted it.

On to the topic.

I’ve sat on my hands to stop from typing something on various topics so many times my fingers are numb. I’ve stopped myself because it is sometimes seen as unprofessional and enough authors have been told to sit down and shut up. We are not supposed to have opinions. We are only to talk about books, book boyfriends, and anything writing/reading related. Apparently.

I keep my mouth shut on most subjects. Like how a debut indie author can top the best-selling lists with no promo and next to no social media. This is not something I’ve been able to achieve, even when I promo my butt off. If I say something I’ll look like a jealous banshee, which I totally am. Maybe they just know how to work the system better than I do. You know, with all their experience and everything. (See! Jealousy) It’s irritating at best.

I try to stay out of any controversies. I may comment every now and then on something contentious but it’s usually when I see an injustice or something dubious. Maybe my professional front is slipping a little. I see authors told to sit down and shut up, not to voice their opinion because they’ll lose readership, and I’ve seen this happen on social media, usually with extreme/abusive right-wingers, but I’ve also seen it happen over small matters such as a difference of opinion.

*Loud sigh* I digress, that is not what this post is about.

This post is about politics. *Gasp* The horror!

I know. I will not be a silent bystander while the world I live in goes to hell. I am an author and I have an opinion. There are lots of authors out there who won’t say anything publicly for various reasons, but are supportive of the #resistance we see happening all over the world at the moment. Let’s face it. There’s so many people filling up our feed with political news and outrage, it’s nice to see a kitty or puppy, or five. Support doesn’t need to be so openly visible, and politics, like religion, is a sticky topic at the best of times. I’ve tried not to rock the boat myself, but well… this particular boat gets me hot under the collar, and if I lose a reader or two that doesn’t agree with me, well… so be it.

Some authors have been told to “stay in your lane,” or to butt out of American politics because “you’re not American. You don’t have a dog in this race.”

I’m a citizen of the world, and this is my lane. My dog may not be as big as an American, but it’s yapping its fool head off right alongside.

From what I have seen online (we don’t get a lot of American news on TV here, thankfully, and yes, I stay away from the fake news sites) Trump is out to destroy the world and make it his own. His decisions in the first week have been reprehensible and morally corrupt at best, not to mention downright scary.

But the #trumpresistance I see happening at the moment gives me the warm fuzzies at the same time as firing me up, making me want to make a banner and start a Perth branch of the movement.

This bit below particularly gives me hope that they’re are more resisters out there than Trump supporters. (BTW, It still baffles me how he got in, but that’s a topic for someone else who knows more than I do. I’m still in shock and shaking my head.)

There is only so much a little Aussie can do. But by God, if I lived in the US, you bet your cute arses I’d be marching and screaming my head off. (just like that banshee above)

When you march, protest, resist, or revolt, please know that this little Australian chick, from the most isolated capital city in the world, is resisting right alongside you. I’m here with you.

I could go on, but there are so many people out there who say it far more eloquently than I. So I’ll leave you with this:

Go forth and resist! Resist today. Resist tomorrow, and resist the day after that. Make sure your voices are heard. Don’t do it just for your country, do it for the collective world population who sees what is happening and is sickened by it. History cannot be allowed to repeat itself.

Resistance is not futile.
