This is the corner of my site devoted to all things in my Starfire-verse. I've set up tabs for what I think you want to know, but please have patience since I add to the pages as I find time. I am also trying to write around time for my family and other hobbies.
Please feel free to email me with suggestions or questions about the series. I enjoy hearing from readers and would welcome knowing what your biggest questions are to build this site to its full potential.
In case you're wondering, I do all my own website maintenance too.
Books is a list of the books in the series with purchase links and prices.
Worlds gives more details about the worlds mentioned in the entire series, mostly Inar'Ahben, the homeworld of the Inari.
Characters features bios of the main characters and the secondary characters.
Starfire provides details about the Starfire's history, what the entities are and where they are really from.
Series is a general FAQ of anything that doesn't fit with the other headings.

Featuring Agents Cross and Coulter right after the battle at NeoGen Labs in Soriel, Deception provides a glimpse of what is to come in the Starfire Angels: Revelations series. Because of its novelette length (around 14,000 words), it is only available as an ebook and for the low price of only $0.99. Available now at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo. Coming soon to other retailers.
Coulter is supposed to be an agent working with Anita Cross to observe the Inari on Earth, but he reveals a different side following the battle at NeoGen Labs. When he takes her prisoner with the Shirukan escaping to the stars, she realizes that the alien in their agency might have been deceiving them all along, waiting for the opportune time to return to his former loyalties. One wrong move could mean the downfall of Earth, but Anita will do all she can to protect her world and learn the truth behind Coulter's deception.
Because of its short length, Shards will only be available as an ebook, but you don’t want to miss it! Trust me on this. Fans have been asking for more about this character and I’m giving it plus MUCH more! Forbidden love and a twist you won’t see coming will be told from this beloved character’s point of view. Yes, it will be first person narrative.
I had to write this one before finishing Phantoms and it’s perfect that it will fall between the releases of both parts of that, since that’s when it takes place while also setting up what I have in mind for Revelations book 3 to come. Because of that, I am numbering it as 2.1 for readers to figure out where in the order of books it belongs. I’m still writing it, so I don’t have a summary yet, but I will post it as soon as I do.
Starfire Angels: Revelations Book 2 News
The next Starfire Angels book has a cover! I've already started writing and have posted some updates on the Facebook page. However, I don't yet have a summary, since I am still writing this one. All I can say on a release date is by the end of 2013, but hopefully in September. I'll be working hard to pull that off! Also, please note that due to the darker themes and more graphic content, I will be publishing this and future books under my pen name for more mature audiences, M. A. Nilles.
This one took me by surprise, but an idea sparked from Deception that ignited my creativity, which is partly why the cover shares the same angel image as Deception. The other reason is because for the paperback only, I will be including Deception with Phantoms as an introduction. The Deception ebook will be released in May, so ebook readers will have it months before paperback readers.
Phantoms will be partly available sooner. The first part will be available in August 2013 with the second in November, along with the full ebook and paperback at that time. Because of the nature of the story, it will easily split into two distinct parts. Stay tuned for updates!
I've finally done it and opened a store on zazzle.com. Of course, the Store is listed as StarfireAngels (no space) ;) If the embedded image displays properly, you'll see some of the products below. Otherwise, click on this link to go directly to my store. Thanks for shopping!
To start out, I do look at my website stats and, inevitably see searches every week for the release of the next book in the series. I love that you, the readers, are looking for more! So, I keep writing more. I enjoy the world I've set up as much as you do. However (yes, there is a down side), I will not push the series down hill. I strive to make each book even more exciting than the last, which is why I knew I had to move on from Raea and Elis in the Dark Angel Chronicles to other characters for the next part of this series, Revelations.
I have much more planned after even Revelations, but nothing is set in stone. All I can say is what I know right now, which is this:
- Soriel (Starfire Angels: Revelations Book 1) is available now! (See Books page for details)
- Deception (Starfire Angels: Revelations 1.5) (novelette) is available now!
- Phantoms (Starfire Angels: Revelations Book 2) will be available sometime in late 2013, broken into two parts initially and later in the year available as one complete novel.
- Shards (Starfire Angels: Revelations 2.1) will be available fall 2013.
- untitled Starfire Angels: Revelations Book 3 will be available in 2014
- An idea for a new YA subseries may gain traction with a first book out sometime in 2014 or 2015.
Why can't you write them faster? It's called real life and a variety of interests. I have other books I want to write and try to attend to each series, which means one Starfire Angels book per year and other books also get a new book every year. I'm not a fast writer either. I take my time to give you more of the books you like me to write, not rushed, poorly written/edited books. My brain only works so fast. Besides that, I have to keep up my house, have dreams to fulfill with my horse, and have a family to attend. Please be patient.
Last of all, your support keeps me going. The kind words in emails and on my Facebook pages and blog always give me a boost and provide great motivation :) Thank you!
Because I see questions in searches leading to my site, I want to answer a few of them here.
Q: In what order should I read the books?
A: The books are numbered for a reason, but for those who are uncertain, here's a list:
Dark Angel Chronicles:
Book 1: Starfire Angels
Book 2: Broken Wings
Book 3: Crystal Tomb
Book 3.5: Origins of Dark Angel
Book 4: Forever Dark
Because When Angels Cry is a sort of prequel, I guess you can decide when you want to read it. Some of those scenes are in Starfire Angels, so I would recommend reading it after Starfire Angels, after you're a little familiar with Scott and Padina and Raea.
Book 1: Soriel
Book 1.5: Deception (novelette) Coming May 2013
Book 2: Phantoms Coming late 2013
Book 3: untitled...late 2014 or early 2015
Apocalypse?? possible conclusion sub-series of SA
Nothing of what is to come is set in stone. Apocalypse is an idea I am considering at this time, along with some shorter stories set in this universe.
Q: Do I need to read Origins of Dark Angel to understand Forever Dark?
A: No. You'll be missing out on some backstory, but the highlights are pulled from Origins as a flashback for the most important information and paraphrased for everything else. However, the opening of Forever Dark may surprise you if you haven't read Origins.
