One of the things I love about writing is the people I meet. Writing is a solitary craft, for the most part, so most of those people reside in my head in one form or another. Writing is a creative process as well, and most creative types shy away from the technical side of things. So it’s a wonderful honor to meet someone who not only gets your storytelling side, but will totally geek out with you over technical things like hand-coding html. And when she gives you a story to read that KEEPS YOU UP UNTIL 5 AM ON A WEEK-NIGHT…well, then there’s no better word for it than…AMAZE-BALLS!
It’s my very special pleasure to introduce you to a fantastic author and terrific friend. Jennette Marie Powell and I first met as members of OVRWA many many moons ago. Through our time together at OVRWA, we’ve orbited one another in various board and committee positions, and shared a love of a sub-genre of romance whose time is long past due–Speculative Romance. Sometimes called “futuristic romance” or “sci-fi romance,” it’s often lumped in with paranormal romance and fantasy romance, with whom it shares fantastical elements, but it’s really a different animal.
In addition to being a fantastic writer who will take you on a well-researched thrill ride through time and romance, Jennette is a talented graphic artist and knows far too much about the secret history of Dayton, Ohio (no, nice G-Men in sunglasses, she hasn’t said anything about the, uh, stuff that is for sure and definitely NOT there. No sirree. Nothing here for you to see…). She’s been instrumental in helping me iron out some of the technical aspects in my own publishing journey, and I can’t thank her enough for her guidance.
And to further knock your socks off, the first book in the series, Time’s Enemy, is only 99 cents as part of a special summer promotion! Do NOT miss this chance to put these thrill-rides on your summer reading list!
They are available as ebooks and in print from all the major online retailers:
Jennette’s been kind enough to answer a few questions about the Saturn Society series for us here today. So without further ado, I’ll let the lady speak!
1. What made you want to write about time-travel and Dayton, Ohio for the Saturn Society series?
2. What’s the message you hope readers take away once they’ve read Time’s Fugitive?
