Book Release: Quantum Wanderlust

I’m happy to announce the release of Quantum Wanderlust: A Time Travel Short Story Anthology. My story, “The Fabric of Time”, is one of thirteen included in this anthology by AIW Press.

Travel through time in this free anthology to see where  these talented authors journeyed in time.

Did they go forward? Did they go back?

 

What if you had all the time in the world?

Thirteen authors answer that question with short stories about time travel. Go back in time to right a wrong, forward to see the future. No jump is too large, no method unfeasible, no lesson beyond learning.

  • Visit the past to learn a family secret.
  • See the formation of a future dictatorship.
  • Assume responsibility for weaving the fabric of time.
  • Travel back in time to WWII.
  • Use a family heirloom to solve problems.
  • Wear an inheritance to visit ancestors.
  • Leave a dystopian future for the hope of something better.
  • Make history come true in an unexpected way.
  • Fight evil fairies to protect a chosen angel.
  • Live with the childhood memory of visitors until the day they arrive.
  • Seek medical help for a memory issue and get way more than bargained for.
  • Discover that with great power comes great responsibility.
  • Uncover the secrets of a pharaoh’s tomb and curse.

Do the characters observe or interact? Is the outcome better or worse than the original timeline? Read these stories to learn how far they go, how they get there, and what happens when they return.

The scope is virtually limitless, definitely timeless.

New Release―Unshod

Unshod CoverA few months ago, the idea to produce a western anthology sprouted. Several talented authors had been asked to participate and the result―amazing.

These aren’t your granddaddy’s westerns. They’re the next generation’s, and they’re darn good.

 

From Jan Morrill, Pamela Foster, Staci Troilo, Joan Hall, P.C. Zick, Janna Hill, Michele Jones, Francis Guenette, and Lorna Faith.

Here’s a peek at what’s in store:

  • Feel the pain of a young Japanese girl who comes home from an internment camp after World War II and learns it’s easier to go with the flow than to fight the current.
  • Struggle with an expectant mother on the cold winter prairie while she waits for her husband to come home from a hunting trip.
  • Journey with a young woman to the Four Corners as she tries to connect with her Navajo ancestors.
  • Try not to believe in the superstition of the blue moon—if one dies, three more will follow.
    Know that one way or another, life will change inalterably that day.
  • Walk in the footsteps of an old cowpoke who thought he made the deal of a lifetime.
  • Suffer the torments of a young lady who wants desperately to marry but seems destined never to wed.
  • Walk the wild western paths and run from unimaginable dangers.
  • Choose between an unhappy life of luxury or a happy life of simplicity.

New Release—Romance Under Wraps

I’m very pleased to announce my first full length novel release.
A paranormal romance, Romance Under Wraps.

Romance Under Wraps Final 4.14.16Set in the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Dene has come alive to try and break the curse. For the first time in over four-thousand years, he finds someone that opens his heart. But will it be enough to free him from the curse?

They come alive once a century.

An advisor, friend, and lover cursed because of his evil pharaoh. Deprived from entering the afterlife because of an indiscretion and ties to his pharaoh and his queen, Dene is tasked by the gods to help them all move on to the afterlife. It’s his curse. Teach his pharaoh to pass the judgments in the book of the dead and pass the weighing of the heart or find the reincarnated queen and have her fall in love with him or his pharaoh to gain his freedom.

Dene tries to teach the pharaoh, but he’s more interested in tricking the gods than learning his lessons. Fearing failure, Dene pins all his hopes on winning the love of his lost queen. But someone is trying to scare her away by falsifying a ‘mummy’s curse.’ With three souls in jeopardy, Dene must solve the mystery and protect her life before his time in this century runs out.

Here’s a sneak peek inside:

Dene walked outside and stared out into the city. No sand, no grass, no trees—just concrete. Buildings taller than the pyramids, stacked too close to each other. Streets filled with cars going nowhere. The people flowed like the Nile, continually moving, swirling around obstacles in their path. He wrinkled his nose at the smell of coffee mixed with gas, cigarettes and cigars, combined with bread, sulfur, and cinnamon. He missed the smell of home, and the peace of his simpler life.
He left early, allowing himself time to walk. Dene clutched the coin in his pocket. He hated the big cities. After a deep breath, he merged into the pedestrian flow and made his way to the museum.

I never thought that my first full length novel would be a romance. Ever in my wildest dreams. It was a challenge for me. This book is part of a paranormal anthology to be released later this year, but I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

Finishing this book was bitter sweet. While thrilled to complete my first novel, actually miss my characters. They have become a part of my life for months. Between the research, the writing, the edits, and yes, there were many edits, my knowledge regarding ancient Egypt has grown.

To all of you out there that think you can’t do it, I am proof that you can.

Romance Under Wraps is available now: Amazon | Kobo | Inktera | iBooks | B&N
Is coming soon: 24 Symbols | Tolino | Scribd | Paperback
