3 Books in the Works, Fun time in my Head and on my Computer

I had a little book, it was the merest thought, the merest character until it blossomed into a full-fledged idea and a full fledged story.

I said I would be working on a new genre and I am happy to announce  I am well into the story and I am very excited about the characters and their interactions.

I started with one type of book in mind and took it up a notch. I am so glad I did. These characters had so much more going for them than I at first imagined.  I do love when a character shakes me up and says “Hey Listen!”

I am listening Dolcey, I am listening.  Hurry up and tell me what I need to know. Hiram needs to get his story out too.

Don’t worry Hiram, I have you started too. Hold on, hold on, you are about to be set free. Keep feeding me your backstory. I am listening.

Two strong characters with a lot of appeal coming soon.  Oh, what a time to be writing!

    Recap of the Indie Author Day Event on Facebook

    Let me start by saying that when I first heard of the event I was immediately interested. What a wonderful way to meet other indie authors and learn from them. As an author of an indie publication, the marketing for the book falls on my doorstep.  I can use all the help I can get.

    The day started at Midnight EST and I stayed up until 5:30 so that I could support the other authors and make sure they were not alone.  That was the number one fear. That no one would show up for the hour.  It was great to actually see how many readers and writers showed up for each hour.

    The questions were interesting and extremely thought provoking. So many people asked for advice on publishing and writing. As an indie author, that is a huge question. Everyone has their own writing schedule and timetable, so it was so enlightening to see how others plan out their writing day.

    My Review:

    What a great time travel plus friendship book. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Jayden, Aneki, Addie, and the ringleader. This book was interesting and made me appreciate the game of baseball and the history of Salem.

    I think there is going to be more adventures if I read that last sentence correctly. I hope so anyway. Dan Nimak really did a great job of building this story. I liked everyone featured and I loved the time periods. I was completely caught up in the story. Dan Nimak has a real connection to the Salem witch trials which were the time frame of their trip back in time.

    When I saw that there was time travel involved, I knew this book was for me, so I requested a copy to read and review. I was so glad to receive this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. This might be considered Middle-grade reading, but I, as an adult, enjoyed the characters and the story immensely. The​ writing is quick and clever and right on target for the age range. Well written and as hard as it is to manage time travel without plot holes, this one aced it.

    My Recommendation:

    I highly recommend this as a great book for middle-grade readers and also anyone that enjoys a fast-paced trip into history via time travel. The concept was unique and the characters were engaging.
