BROKEN PROTOCOLS

broken protocolHi everyone,

My mind is a deep morasse of ideas that pop up dark and deadly thoughts on a regular basis. However, every once in a while, something much lighter surfaces. As these instances are so rare, I generally tug on them so I can take a look at them in the light. It’s a Dog’s Life was one example that worked out lovely.

About a month – maybe 2 months – I came up with another odd but fun idea. As is so typical of my writing, it crosses several genres: fantasy, time travel, romantic suspense and comedy. I guess it’s a throw-it-all-in-including-the-kitchen-sink type of idea.

Having just finished writing Rare Find, which is heavy, twisted and difficult to write, I was eager for something light and short. Broken Protocols was the result. It’s the first of 3 novellas in the series. And knowing me, there will be another series with the same characters down the road when I’m looking for another comedy to lighten my dark muse. Speaking of dark, still to come is Chilled by Death (book 3 in my By Death series, and Stefan’s story, book 7 in the Psychic Vision series.)

Much thanks to Edie for helping me with the blurb! 🙂

Broken Protocols

Dani’s been through a year of hell…

Just as it’s getting better, she’s tossed forward through time with her orange Persian cat, Charmin Marvin, clutched in her arms. They’re dropped into a few centuries into the future. There’s nothing she can do to stop it, and it’s impossible to go back

And then it gets worse…

A year of government regulation is easing, and Levi Blackburn is feeling back in control. If he can keep his reckless brother in check, everything will be perfect. But while he’s been protecting Milo from the government, Milo’s been busy working on a present for him…

The present is Dani, only she comes with a snarky cat who suddenly starts talking…and doesn’t know when to shut up.
