Happy Release Day

The only place left to hide was in the past.

Fire Elemental Leda and her plainfolk companion, Grey, are running from a man obsessed with creating a creature who can read thoughts. Convinced that Leda can produce this unnatural child, he has threatened to hunt her down to the ends of the earth—and he has kept his word. Their only escape is a one-way trip through the time portal.

With death on their heels, salvation appears in the form of two strangers. Seemingly ordinary people, Tom and Cassandra assure Leda and Grey that they are here to help. They claim they are repaying a debt—Leda and Grey helped them once, 1200 years ago.

The trip through the portal offers no escape, as Leda and Grey discover that evil transcends time. Can their presence in the past stop the eventual apocalypse that forms their future?
My friend Maria Zannini has a new book, Apocalypse Rising, coming out today. It's the long awaited (at least for me *grin*) sequel to Touch of Fire which I reviewed here.

What are you waiting for? Go grab yourself a copy, you can't go wrong with a Maria Zannini read *grin*

Oh, I didn't release it was today! Where've I been?! Thanks for the reminder.

Yep, can't wait to pick up the ol' Nook and read it!

Maria Zannini said...

This was so nice of you, Sherri! Thank you!!

I'm still having trouble with Google Reader, but I think I know why I kept missing your posts.

Your posts are coming in truncated. I have a bad habit of deleting abbreviated posts without reading them. Eeks! That'll teach me for not paying more attention as I'm scanning the list.

Hi Maria! Still haven't had time to read it yet. It's sitting there, calling me, "Sherri...the housework can wait...pick up the Nook...Sherri..."


Yeah, sorry about that, I'm trying an experiment on this blog to see if people link through from FB better with the shorter posts. (Unfortunately, with blogger at least, I can't select which feeds to shorten.) If it doesn't make any difference I'll go back to the full posts.

But I didn't do that on the other blog so I'm not sure why you had a problem there.

Thanks for stopping by and happy release day :)
