A break from politics.About time, some might say! Yes, after a long delay John is finally getting somethingNEWpublished. The plan is to make that a more frequent occurrence–with novels out every year or two. Working on one right now, in fact. But first a short story collection.
Check out the Fountain, in a Kindle edition only for the next 90 days, available on pre-order from Amazon now. It will be delivered July 10, 2017, for anyone ordering it now and thereafter for everyone. We’ll talk about free days and discounts later (can’t until after July 10.
Humor, twists and more in this collection of seven fantasy and sci-fi short stories. Like what? Here’s what you will find:
Karma can be painful in “The Fountain”–when a plunderer meets a long-dead shaman.
A family adopts a retriever with special talents in “Lily, an Amazing Dog.”
A vampire has a strange problem, in “Alfred’s Strange Blood Disorder.”
A perennial favorite, dimensional travel, with a strange twist in “The Closet Door.”
What could that column of fire be, rising from the Atlantic off the Outer Banks? Read “The Flame” to find out what it meant to troubled writer Carson.
A wizard casts a spell that works well for a princess, but will it be as good for him? Check out “The Wizard.”
Finally, “The Fribble” offers an alien encounter of an odd sort, to a pharmaceutical company rep searching for new drugs in the Amazon Rain forest.
In honor of the upcoming travel season, D.G. Kaye is putting her book, Have Bags, Will Travelon promotion for FREE, from November 28th through December 2nd! The book will be available Free to all countries. This Universal Link will take you directly to the Amazon book page of your country to download it. I encourage you to get it if you haven’t read it. I did, here’s my review from Goodreads.
In reviewing Have Bags, Will Travel I must first confess that I have never been a woman, at least in this lifetime. That, not to put too much of a sexist spin on it, means I don’t have the shopping gene. Still, having watched countless movies and TV shows over a lifetime—and read a few books as well, I am familiar with the whole shopping zeitgeist. Then too, I have had the experience of traveling hither and yon. Not having the shopping gene has saved me from some of the travel travails that D.G. Kaye humorously recounts. The need for a travel scale to weigh suitcases. Customs enforcers frequently finding fault, or at least doubt, with her attention to limits on the value of goods brought into the country.
Whether you’re a shopper or not, there’s no doubt that flying is not as much fun as it once might have been for many. The seats get smaller, the aisles narrower, the allowable luggage more compact and of course the security checks have become over the top. Ms Kaye covers it all in a breezy book, reminiscing on her adventures around the globe with friends and fellow shoppers. It’s a fast and funny read.
