Happy New Year (and new decade), everyone! Elizabeth’s final release of 2019 was Running Scared by J.A. Sutherland, the sequel to Running Start. Both were produced for Tantor Audio. Elizabeth has also narrated the Alexis Carew series by Sutherland, all of which are available at Audible.
Rosa and Mason once had a billion credits – sure, they stole them from a corrupt private-prison corporation, but the bastards deserved it.
Now, that company’s tracked them down and kidnapped Mason’s mother. The only way to keep her, and themselves, alive is to go to work for the company that once imprisoned them, then head for the Asteroid Belt to hack a pirate king’s datastream – oh, and give back the billion credits.
Rosa’s not sure it’s a fair trade.
Elizabeth’s latest release is the first book in the new Dark Runs series: Running Start by J.A. Sutherland, now available at Audible. Elizabeth will be narrating the second book, Running Scared, for Tantor Audio in November. Sutherland is also the author of the popular Alexis Carew series, which should be returning next year.
What if you discovered you’d been sold?
For Mason Guthrie, a sudden arrest, railroad trial, and quick conviction for the “vandalism” of fixing things around his tenement building come as a shock.
For Rosa Fuentes, it’s just more confirmation that, to Earth’s rulers, they’re nothing but commodities to be bought and sold.
Together – along with Rosa’s disturbingly capable AI – they break out and make their way off Earth to start a new, free life.
Unfortunately, the folks they stole a billion credits from along the way would like those back.
The latest audiobook in the Alexis Carew series by J.A. Sutherland is now available at Audible: The Queen’s Pardon. This is the sixth book in the popular SFF series, and follows the previous installments, beginning with Into the Dark. Alexis (and Elizabeth) will be back with Book #7 in Fall 2019.
Allies and enemies are not always what they seem.
Trapped on a hostile world, hunted by pirate bands, and abandoned by her fellow captains, Alexis Carew must lead her small band to safety, even though it seems every hand is set against her. Stalked by pirates in the skies above and shadowy alien figures on the planet below, Alexis must convince former enemies to trust her even as she discovers where the tendrils of her true enemies lead.
Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of the latest book in the popular Alexis Carew series by J.A. Sutherland: Privateer, book #5, now available at Audible. If you haven’t yet listened to this swashbuckling SFF adventure series, start with Into the Dark, and continue with Mutineer, The Little Ships, and HMS Nightingale. Be sure to listen to the audio sample of the latest release!
Even with no war on, there are always battles to fight.
A cease-fire in the war with Hanover leaves Lieutenant Alexis Carew on half-pay, in-atmosphere, and with her ship laid up in ordinary until called upon once more for the needs of the Service. She was, at least, lucky enough to be in her home star system when her last ship, HMS Nightingale, paid off, unlike much of her former crew.
She’s left to help manage her family lands, though still with no certainty she’ll be allowed to inherit them. It would be a tranquil, peaceful life, if not for the influx of asteroid miners seeking their fortunes, the uncertainties of her inheritance, and the nagging certainty that her current life is not what she really wants.
She’d give anything to command a ship again.
Alexis Carew fans, take note! The fourth book in J.A. Sutherland’s excellent SFF series is now available at Audible! Elizabeth has been enjoying narrating this series – about a young British female Naval officer in space – since 2015. Other books in the series include Into the Dark, Mutineer, The Little Ships, and the novellas Wronged and Planetfall. If you haven’t listened to Alexis’ adventures, find out what you’re missing by starting with Into the Dark.
For Lieutenant Alexis Carew, it should be the perfect assignment – a command of her own and a chance to return to her home star system.
What she finds is a surly crew, the dregs of every frigate and ship of the line to pass through on the way to the war’s front, a first officer who thinks the command should have been his, and colonial worlds where they believe a girl’s place is somewhere very different than command of a Queen’s starship. Add to that the mysterious disappearances of ships vital to the war effort and an old enemy who seems intent on convincing her he’s changed.
Then there’s the mongoose with an unnatural affinity for her boots.
Elizabeth has a new release today: Planetfall by J.A. Sutherland, a short novel that is part of the Alexis Carew series. Elizabeth has narrated four other books in this excellent swashbuckling SFF series: Into the Dark, Mutineer, The Little Ships, and Wronged. She will be narrating the next installment in the series this fall. If you haven’t met Alexis and her family yet, Elizabeth suggests starting with Into the Dark!
Denholm Carew enjoys a life most would envy. Scion of a wealthy family on New London, he can have almost anything he wants. But what he wants more than anything is the freedom to make his own way and build his own legacy to pass down to his children. Together with his wife, Lynelle, he sells everything to buy shares in a colonial company and settle the newly discovered world of Dalthus IV.
Fans of the Alexis Carew series by J.A. Sutherland will love Elizabeth’s new release. Wronged: A Story of the Dark is a prequel to the series, exploring the early life of one of Sutherland’s most intriguing characters. If you want to start at the beginning, check out the first three books in the series, all narrated by Elizabeth: Into the Dark, Mutineer, and The Little Ships.
Jon Bartlett’s path is clear before him: finish his last year of schooling, then off on the family’s ships to learn the intricacies of interstellar trade. But a message of tragedy at home comes for him, and his expected life is flung far out of reach.
Wronged is a short story set in the Alexis Carew universe. It takes place some 30 years before the start of Into the Dark (Alexis Carew, book one). It is best to listen to this after The Little Ships (Alexis Carew, book three).
Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of The Little Ships, the third book in the Alexis Carew series by J.A. Sutherland. This book is now available at Audible, where you can listen to an audio sample. Elizabeth has also narrated the other two books in the series – Into the Dark and Mutineer – and will be narrating a novella set in the same world early in 2016.
Newly commissioned lieutenant Alexis Carew is appointed into HMS Shrewsbury, a 74-gun ship of the line in New London’s space navy. She expects Shrewsbury will be sent into action in the war against Hanover, but instead she finds that she and her new ship are pivotal in a Foreign Office plot to bring the star systems of the French Republic into the war and end the threat of Hanover forever.
Elizabeth’s latest Audible release is the second book in the Alexis Carew series by J. A. Sutherland: Mutineer. Elizabeth also narrated the first book, Into the Dark, earlier this year, and will voice the next installment later in 2015. Listeners have been loving the first audiobook, calling Elizabeth’s narration “charming, well paced, and clearly in tune with the material”; “an outstanding performance”; “an exceptional job … keeping the action moving with a variety of different voices, tones and accents that kept me wanting to hear more.”
More about Mutineer: Just as Midshipman Alexis Carew thinks she’s found a place in the Royal Navy, she’s transferred aboard H.M.S. Hermione. Her captain is a Tartar, liberal with the cat, who thinks girls have no place aboard ship. The other midshipmen in the berth are no better and the only advice she’s offered is to keep her head down and mouth shut – things Alexis is rarely able to do.
Elizabeth is pleased to announce the release of her latest audiobook: Into the Dark by J. A. Sutherland, now available at Audible! This is a wonderful SFF novel, the first in the Alexis Carew series, with a smart and courageous teenage heroine and a creative revisioning of the Royal Navy in deep space. You can read more about the book and the author here, and listen to a sample file at Audible. The author wrote recently on his blog, “I’m really pleased with Elizabeth Klett’s narration. She did a spectacular job.”
At 15, Alexis Carew has to face an age old problem – she’s a girl, and only a boy can inherit the family’s vast holdings. Her options are few. She must marry and watch a stranger run the lands, or become a penniless tenant and see the lands she so dearly loves sold off. Yet there may be another option, one that involves becoming a midshipman on a shorthanded spaceship with no other females.
