Hello!

I am offering Curse of the Cache for free on Saturday.

It is a young adult time travel fantasy but appealing to all ages. If you are looking for an adventure full of pirates, hidden treasure, smugglers, and secret coves with an unusual twist you may want to check it out.

Book description and link are below:

"It had happened again. He woke up in a cold sweat. The nightmare had returned. The nightmare of hands reaching out to clutch him, hands coming from a grave, hands that seemed to transcend the tombstone, the tombstone whose name could not be read. He tried to run but the hands came after him, clutching him, threatening to stop him. He woke just as he fell while hurtling over a headstone, the wind knocked out of him, turning behind him to find the hands ever nearer, coming closer, determined to catch him.

Mike Matthews sat up in bed. He woke with a gasp, sweat pouring from his forehead, and his heart pounding in his chest. His breath came in short sharp stabs. Why, why did he always have this dream? Why did it come upon him, haunting him, making him afraid at times to fall asleep?

And lately it had been worse, it had come more often. It used to only come upon him once or twice a year, since he was fifteen years old. But it was coming more frequently, and always it seemed after he had fallen, after he had given in to the temptation of the uncontrollable urge.

Mike was a thief. No one was aware of it, because he was very good at covering his tracks. No one knew when there was a theft of jewelry, that it was he who took it. And always it was a green stone. He could resist any other kind of gem; pearls, diamonds, costume jewelry, silver, or gold. But something about the color green, particularly emeralds, always caught his eye, and he found himself reaching out with shaking hands to take it."

Mike Matthews is haunted by a dream and a curse that threaten to ruin his existence. Until one wild night when he and his brother and their friend discover a mysterious cavern where they find themselves hurtled back in time and encounter a smuggler, pirates, and other nefarious characters who uncover a past that creates as many questions as answers...

From L. M. Roth, author of The Quest For the Kingdom series, Adventures of Abelard trilogy, and The Princess Who...series, comes a thrilling tale of time travel that evokes a haunting atmosphere and unfolds mysterious revelations in a spine-tingling adventure on a quest for truth.

Good morning!

Today I am offering Disenchanted In the Land of Dreams Come True for free on Amazon. If you like a little light horror that will generate goosebumps down your spine you may want to check it out. It is full of eerie atmosphere and populated by fairies, ghosts, gnomes, and other mysterious creatures. Book description and link are below.


"Be careful what you wish for: you might get it..."


"But what is this land that you call Incantera Sylvana? How did we stumble into it when all we did was to go into the woods to fetch a healing herb for our mother?"

Daphne slowly turned her eyes from the trees and brought them back to rest on the face of her inquisitor. She took considerable time before answering, as if assessing Col and his ability to understand what she was about to impart. Col never flinched and stood with his feet slightly apart, determined to solve the mystery of the land into which he and his sister had stumbled.

Seeing his resolve, Daphne at last spoke.

"Incantera Sylvana is what remains of what was once a perfect world. Here all of creation is in balance and lives in harmony. It is largely unchanged from its original state, with only a few changes that have come to mar it. And those changes came after the advent of Man, who can not touch anything without spoiling it, all the while under the delusion that he improves what he changes, never seeing, never caring, that nothing needed improving except in his mind.

"Man was never part of this world, but there is a door that opens on occasion, through which he stumbles and always brings some grief on our land. Always he seeks to make improvements and by his attempts he spoils what was once perfect. And when he discovers the secret of Incantera Sylvana he becomes more terrible still as he attempts to mold our world to his will.

"Man has long been the bane of this land, and yet we have been unable to stop his coming. He does not enter often enough that we see where he found the door, and he does not tell us when he is apprehended. If we could but seal the door we should do so, but we have never been able to find it and so prevent his entrance into our world."


From L. M. Roth, author of the Quest For the Kingdom series, The Adventure of Abelard series, and The Princess Who... series comes a haunting tale of terror in an enchanted forest.

A brother and sister on an errand stumble through the door to another world. In the land of Incantera Sylvana, anything you wish for is possible. But will they discover that their dreams come true might turn out to be their worst nightmare in time to save themselves? Or will they pay the ultimate penalty for trespassing where mortals are not welcome?

Hello!

I am offering A Bane In Salem: A Tale of the Salem Witch Trials for free on Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th. It is an historical romance set in the time of the Witch Trials. The heroine and her friends are fictional characters, but there are also historical figures of the accused, the accusers, the ministers, and others involved in the story. I was deeply moved as I wrote it and longed and hoped to bring to life the plight of the helpless victims who found themselves at the center of a storm with no hope in sight. May the innocent rest in peace...

Book description and link are below:

Letitia had always been branded as different in the Village of Salem. But now in a time when being different brings danger, she finds herself at the mercy of the opinion of her neighbors. Although she is being courted by two men, can she rely on either of them to defend her from the storm that swirls around her, as the Village is caught up in a maelstrom of accusations?

What happened in Salem over three hundred years ago? Was it an outbreak of mass hysteria fueled by superstition? Were there truly witches among the pious Puritans who made their home in the New World to establish a kingdom of God on earth? Or did someone execute bitter vengeance against their oppressors and bring destruction on the innocent?

L. M. Roth, author of the Quest For the Kingdom series, The Princess Who series, and Battleground: Elijah and the War With Jezebel, weaves a spellbinding tale of the mysterious incidents that occurred in Salem more than three centuries ago. With insight and historical detail the Salem Witch Trials come vividly to life, and the blood of those wronged cries out for justice even now.

What a great question! I know that throughout my childhood, whenever my parents would shout of me to go to school, I'd wish I could avoid going by entering my wardrobe and finding Narnia, so for that reason I'd have to say, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe ;D

Narnia is one of my favorite journeys as well. Would loved to have sailed on the Dawn Treader and danced at Caer Paravel!

Definitely, Middle Earth and Narnia, but only if like Dante with Virgil, Tolkien and Lewis could be my guides! :)

Sounds like a good time would be had by all!

Good morning!

I have just released a new book Curse of the Cache. It is a young adult time travel fantasy but appealing to all ages. If you are looking for a summer adventure with an unusual twist you may want to check it out.

Book description and link are below:

"It had happened again. He woke up in a cold sweat. The nightmare had returned. The nightmare of hands reaching out to clutch him, hands coming from a grave, hands that seemed to transcend the tombstone, the tombstone whose name could not be read. He tried to run but the hands came after him, clutching him, threatening to stop him. He woke just as he fell while hurtling over a headstone, the wind knocked out of him, turning behind him to find the hands ever nearer, coming closer, determined to catch him.

Mike Matthews sat up in bed. He woke with a gasp, sweat pouring from his forehead, and his heart pounding in his chest. His breath came in short sharp stabs. Why, why did he always have this dream? Why did it come upon him, haunting him, making him afraid at times to fall asleep?

And lately it had been worse, it had come more often. It used to only come upon him once or twice a year, since he was fifteen years old. But it was coming more frequently, and always it seemed after he had fallen, after he had given in to the temptation of the uncontrollable urge.

Mike was a thief. No one was aware of it, because he was very good at covering his tracks. No one knew when there was a theft of jewelry, that it was he who took it. And always it was a green stone. He could resist any other kind of gem; pearls, diamonds, costume jewelry, silver, or gold. But something about the color green, particularly emeralds, always caught his eye, and he found himself reaching out with shaking hands to take it."

Mike Matthews is haunted by a dream and a curse that threaten to ruin his existence. Until one wild night when he and his brother and their friend discover a mysterious cavern where they find themselves hurtled back in time and encounter a smuggler, pirates, and other nefarious characters who uncover a past that creates as many questions as answers...

From L. M. Roth, author of The Quest For the Kingdom series, Adventures of Abelard series, and The Princess Who...series, comes a thrilling tale of time travel that evokes a haunting atmosphere and unfolds mysterious revelations in a spine-tingling adventure on a quest for truth.

Just wondering if A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court might help him see how culture shapes people and their ideology and influences their actions. The main character was surprised at how actual medieval people lived but befriended them and eventually saw that for the most part they hadn't been taught any better. I can think of some other books such as The Moon of the Popping Trees about Wounded Knee that might help answer some of his questions. Wounded Knee was a huge misunderstanding caused by two cultures that did not understand or communicate well with each other and clashed as a result.

I would absolutely love attending Hogwarts, but having grown up on a steady diet of Dragonlance Chronicles I would be right at home in the world of Krynn.

Wouldn't mind a trip down the rabbit hole with Alice or setting sail with Jim and Silver in Treasure Island. I guess thats why we read, so we can say we already have.

And don't forget Alice's journey through The Looking Glass. I enjoyed that even more than Wonderland!

Definitely a Journey through Middle Earth! As dangerous as it would it would be picturesque that is for sure.

Yes, a journey through Middle Earth would be quite an adventure. Encounters with orcs, Sauron, Saruman, giant spiders, and miscellaneous goblins would get your adrenalin going, that's for sure! But then there is also the beauty of Rivendell, the timelessness of Lothlorien, the haunting loneliness of Rohan, and the charm of the Shire to make it worthwhile!

I don't know how well-known the series is as it was published more than 60 years ago, but M. M. Kaye's Death In...series is very good. Kaye was the author of The Far Pavilions. She wrote the Death In...series when she was much younger. Her husband was in the British military and she made it a goal to set a murder mystery in every place where he was stationed. So she wrote Death In the Andamans, Berlin, Cyprus, Kashmir, Kenya, and Zanzibar. They are colorful, funny, suspenseful, and well-written, with lots of atmosphere and local history woven through the stories and chock-full of British flavor. If you like Agatha Christie you will like these. I actually like these better because Kaye really develops the characters and you care about what happens to them, something I always found lacking in Christie's books, as much as I like those.
