Must Love Breeches by Angela Quarles

Book Description

Must Love Breeches by Angela Quarles

The Indie Book of the Day for 25th of May, 2015!

Genre: Children’s, Animals

A mysterious artifact zaps Isabelle Rochon to pre-Victorian England, and suddenly her love of historical authenticity collides with the reality that she’s a modern-day girl. But when a thief steals her card case, she determines to retrieve the time-traveling artifact. Now she must hunt down the case, navigate the pitfalls of stiff society London, conceal her origins, and resist her growing attraction to Lord Montagu, a viscount so hot, he curls her shower-loving toes.

Lord Montagu is resolved to avenge his sister and has no time for dalliances, despite the appeal of the strange but lovely Colonial. However, when his scheme for revenge requires a respectable match, he convinces Isabelle to masquerade as his fiancée. But he did not bargain for Ms. Rochon being his intellectual match or the irresistible allure.

Isabelle thought all she wanted was to return home, but as passion flares between them, she must decide when her true home, and her heart, lies.

Set in 1834 London, this time travel historical romance features a small cast of historical characters, including Ada Byron, Lord Byron’s daughter, and Charles Babbage, inventor of the Difference Engine. It explores the often overlooked scientific developments of pre-Victorian London.

Her debut novel MUST LOVE BREECHES swept many unpublished romance contests, including the Grand Prize winner of Windy City’s Four Seasons contest in 2012. Angela loves history, folklore, and family history, and has been a hobby historian for twenty+ years. She decided to take her love of history and her active imagination and write stories of love and adventure for others to enjoy. When writing, she’s either at her desk in the finished attic of an historic home in beautiful and quirky Mobile, AL, or at her fave spot at the local Starbucks. When she isn’t writing, she’s either working at the local indie bookstore or enjoying the usual stuff like gardening, reading, hanging out, eating, drinking, chasing squirrels out of the walls, and creating the occasional knitted scarf.

Angela has had a varied career, including website programming and directing a small local history museum. She’s an admitted geek and is proud to be among the few but mighty Browncoats who watched Firefly the first night it aired. She was introduced to the wonderful world of science fiction by her father, by way of watching reruns of the original Star Trek in her tweens and later giving her a copy of Walter M. Miller Jr’s A Canticle for Leibowitz as a teenager. She hasn’t looked back since.

She has a B.A. in Anthropology and International Studies with a minor in German from Emory University, and a Masters in Heritage Preservation from Georgia State University. She was an exchange student to Finland in high school and studied abroad in Vienna one summer in college.

The Shard Chronicles by Liam M. Taylor

Book Description

The Shard Chronicles by Liam M. Taylor

The Indie Book of the Day for 18th of October, 2014!

Genre: Science Fiction, Time Travel

Our destruction is soon Our hero is now

A mild quake struck the exact moment Austin Cooper was born. When he was two years old an unidentified man saved his life, and he was five when the man guided him during his first use of a remarkable ability. At age seven, the man told Austin the talent he had was unique among anyone else in existence, and given to ensure his role as future protector of an ancient and powerful artifact. Later that day, the man departed Earth, taking the object he had possessed for centuries, and leaving behind a world condemned to destruction by the brooding, alien malevolence it contained. Now, Austin matures with the understanding that no one else has the ability to manipulate time, to move through it at a different level, a different speed. No one else can simply disappear to a place far away, a parched, bleak, and inhospitable wasteland. The trouble is, neither should Austin. Without control of the artifact, he achieves the supposedly impossible, and reveals himself to another realm, to others that require him, preferably alive, but otherwise would suffice. And things just aren’t getting any easier. There are the seemingly real and vivid dreams that plague him over the years, his ongoing struggle to keep the truth from his loving family, and the prospect of all-out war with a vengeful school bully, intent on destroying the only person able to defeat his cruel and callous deeds. Well… take a number and get in line. Half the Universe is already waiting.

A New Zealander by birth, Liam came into this world in Auckland, the City of Sails, on a sunny December day in 1967, to an English mother and Kiwi father. From an early age, he loved books, especially anything to do with science fiction/fantasy, and on the weekends, in a time before personal computers, video game platforms and social media, this often led to ‘Lord of the Rings’ style battle re-enactments around the wooded areas of his hometown.

Throughout his schooling, even extending into his formative years, he held something close to his heart… a burning desire to write, fueled by various comments and accomplishments in English and one special competition win at the age of nine. However, the shadow of an antiquated belief that a son must follow his father’s vocation, coupled with some extraordinarily bad advice, influenced that naïve adolescent into a variety of unfulfilling jobs.

Eventually, he left the shores of his country and ventured out into the world… to the birthplace of his beloved mother, England. It was there, based in London and later Reading (actually pronounced Redding. Still, coincidental? Or perhaps a twist of fate?) that his life really took off, and he met many an amazing person and experienced many wonderful events on his travels around the globe. Yet still, he pushed away his true yearning, thinking that the opportunity to write was lost… even with all the great ideas that leapt into his mind, urging him to expand upon their fledgling concept. Write about me, they would say!

After moving to Queensland, Australia, he reconnected with a special person from his past… a special person he loves, admires, trusts, and who has given him the second thing he thought he would never have – two beautiful children. A special person who has been the key to his lock, his light, his beacon, through the darkest of hours. Inevitably, bleak days lay ahead, with the same old rut rearing its extremely ugly head… made worse by certain individuals both personally, and professionally.

But Karma, in all its infinite wisdom and consequences, had a plan. And on a night in November 2009, wrapped in despair, that plan slammed into his mind with the force of a Rocky Balboa roundhouse. Write, Liam Taylor… write.

You see, wonderful readers, there’s a reason for everything that happens, and with an abundance of life’s experience and knowledge under his belt, so begins his journey, his real calling, on a thought that never left the inner recesses of his mind, a thought that began on a delayed train from Reading to London’s Paddington Station in 2002, and a thought that grew with every passing rumination.

Now, The Shard Chronicles is well underway, and he is an awfully busy man, juggling family life and his true career. He’s loving every minute of it!

Odette Speex by Padgett Lively

Book Description

Odette Speex by Padgett Lively

The Indie Book of the Day for 14th of July 2014!

Genre: Science Fiction, Time Travel

Western literature is known for its lack of stories featuring plucky time-traveling ballerinas. Odette Speex: Time Traitors Book 1 seeks to remedy this disgraceful oversight.      Rebellious yet kindhearted, our hero traverses the mean streets of twenty-first century New York City. A heavy poisonous smog hangs permanently over this bleak metropolis. Testament to a technology that has advanced little since the advent of steam powered locomotion. The revolutionary movements of the late eighteenth century never materialized, and the great city is part of a vast British Empire. 

     Its teeming underclass struggles daily to survive. Odette Speex is among them. A talented ballerina, her defiant spirit chafes at the unyielding tyranny of the nobility.      Unbeknownst to her, she lives in a terribly distorted world–one that should never have been. One created by an unscrupulous fellowship to advance the ambitions of a corrupt elite. They are the reason her devious and genius twin brother, Odell, is acting more than usually cold and distant. He draws Odette into a time-traveling conspiracy that saw the defeat of the American Revolution and destroyed the ideals of the Enlightenment.      Thrust back over two hundred years in time, Odette finds herself in mid-eighteenth-century London. There, she must avert the murder of an important colonial diplomat and stop the shadowy brotherhood from subverting history’s march toward progress. 
      She is aided in her mission by a staunch group of allies; a beautiful dressmaker, a reluctant lawyer, a teenage prostitute and a mysterious Buddhist monk round out the requisite band of oddball characters.      The fate of the world is laid upon Odette’s slender, albeit graceful, shoulders. And she is left to ponder the age-old question all heroes must answer: “What the hell am I doing?”
     An alternative history, time-traveling, historical mystery/romance, Odette Speex: Time Traitors Book 1, delivers a well-written, fast-paced adventure that is hard to put down.
