Friday: Waiting for the mailman is a difficult thing for an author. The postal tracking number showed that the print proof of Through the Shimmer of Time would arrive today, and the mail comes about noon. I worked hard on guest blogs in the morning so I could enjoy the moment. 11:30 – No mail yet. 12:05 – Mail! But no book package! 12:07 – Back inside, I check the USPS tracking number on the computer. “On Delivery,” it says. Is it on a package-only mail truck? Or did it go astray? We’ve had mail mis-delivered before. I sign up for text alerts and they send one immediately, telling me once again that it is “on delivery.” 12:32 – My phone chimes. The text from USPS says that the package has been delivered. 12:32 – I check the mailbox again. I check the front porch and beside the big garage … Continue reading
For the second stop on my Shimmer of Time blog tour, I’m talking to a time travel agent about the possibilities of booking a trip to the when of my dreams! So many choices – where and when do I want to go? And where would YOU want to go? Hop on over to The Perils of Pauline to discover my favorite time travel trips, and to tell us about your own. Or come back here and leave your dream trip in my comments! And in the meantime, great news! Through the Shimmer of Time popped up to #6 in one of its Kindle categories yesterday, and even made the top 100 in ALL time travel books, including umpteen versions of Stephen King’s 11/22/63 and all the Magic Tree House books.
I have two new shiny things to distract you today! Well, make that one shiny and one a bit dingy. And if you get this in your email, you’ll have to click the title – the pictures only show up on the blog. The best new shiny is the official cover reveal for Through the Shimmer of Time. I’m thrilled with it, and with my cover designer, Melinda VanLone, of Book Cover Corner. The cover design comes with its own story. Because I wanted my cover characters to be the right age, and because of the 1830s period (the Civil War era would have been much easier), stock photography sites didn’t have anything we could use. So guess who turned photographer? I found two awesome young people who were very willing to be part of my book journey, set my trustworthy old Canon on “sport” so the shutter speed was … Continue reading
