About Time Walker:
For Mali Harper, getting in the time monitoring unit of TIM (Time Integrity Management) is the first step to realizing her dreams and building relationships. When an opportunity presents itself, she has a chance to make a big leap.
A growing time anomaly requires a Time Adjuster team to go back to the 18th century to correct the situation by whatever means necessary. Failure could mean the end of everything humanity has built in the future, including the space station Mali is living on. As an era expert, she is added to the team, but she isn’t trained for fieldwork yet. Now, they must hope that her adaptability and knowledge are enough to save the future.
Time Walkeris the first book of a trilogy that combines time travel with the steam-driven era in an exciting story that keeps you guessing. If you enjoy time travel novels with punches of action and adventure, then this book is for you. Pick up your free copy during this giveaway.
About The Wizard’s Gift
When his kingdom is threatened by a powerful wizard, a Wizard King must conjure a method to leave his knowledge to his heirs. Calling on his skills, he devises a unique plan.
The Wizard’s Gift is a fantasy short story to be enjoyed by teenagers to adults of all ages.
That’s it for this short post. I hope you will enjoy a happy holiday season and will pick up some books to read. They make wonderful presents.
First off, I can’t believe I haven’t blogged since August before I went to the World Science Fiction Convention! Well, I have been busy, but most of it has been catching up after that incredible trip.
World Science Fiction Convention in Dublin
The convention was great although somewhat exhausting. So many panels and things to do. I loved the concert featuring music from various science fiction films. Awesome musicians. Costume contest was amazing. Dublin fandom outdid themselves to make this a fantastic convention. The biggest drawback was that the art show and a few other things, including George R.R. Martin signing autographs, were in a different building several blocks away. I never made it down there. With so many people and multiple panels at the same time, you had to choose wisely.
I spent an additional two weeks in Ireland, rented a car – will not do that again – and drove to the west coast where I did a little research and enjoyed the beauty of the country. This was my fourth trip to Eire over the past forty years. The last time I’d been over was in 1989, and I can say the place has changed considerably. Many more people, cities growing bigger, but at the heart of the towns, it is still the same Ireland. Unfortunately, it was also the wettest August they’d experienced in many years, or so the locals told me. I was rained on most every day and the Galway area experienced heavy rains. And cold… it was cold!
An amazing experience over all and I had a grand time. I enjoyed the welcome of several bed and breakfast places and renewed my spirit while I was there.
Starting in late October, I attempted to plot the second book in my Time Threads series with an eye to having it out in late Spring. It didn’t go as smoothly as I hoped, so I leaped into NaNoWriMo with a poor plan. In spite of that, I did complete the challenge of 50 thousand words on November 15th, so that is true to form for the past few years I’ve been doing it. I am still working on the book and hope to complete the first draft by the end of the month.
I have three other novels that are drafts that I need to either rewrite or edit before I can publish them, so I hope to focus on one of them over the next couple of months before I begin editing the book I’m working on now. I will be busy, busy.
I am thrilled to be part of another great Science Fiction and Fantasy Giveaway on Prolific Works that will begin on November 21st and run through January 22nd. This is a great opportunity to pick up some terrific science fiction and fantasy novels, including Time Walker, the first book of my Time Threads trilogy. I’ll send out a blast when the giveaway goes live so you can go check out the 40+ books available. I also have my short story, The Wizard’s Gift in the giveaway, so if you haven’t read it yet, you can grab it then.
I’m looking forward to the holidays and I’ll tell you all about my Game of Thrones tour that I did in Ireland. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, if you celebrate, and a very merry holiday season. Winter is definitely coming.
Exploring barriers between reality and other realities… Is it fantasy or just a step through a dimension portal?
