WOW! I finally made into the Party – What a day! First of all I’d like to thank all the comments sent my way about Atlantis Vortex from the previous party when I was only able to post a few small bits. I now have a firm release date, a little later than originally planned due to the wonderful flu bug going around. That date is, February 4th, 2013 – just in time for Valentine’s Day.
To lead off – I’ll post the Back Blurb for the book then start in bits of the excerpts. I do have the first page for Atlantis Vortex up on my web site along with many pictures of not only Atlantis but other places the book will take you.
Did Atlantis exist? Had she found an entrance? Discovering a small, ancient Egyptian pyramid in a most unlike place, Southern Florida, Archaeologist Jessica Carter is confronted with history alerting questions. Excavating the mysterious entrance Jessica becomes the nexus of a series of life threatening incidents. Each event grows more baffling, as do the interventions that save her. Finally an earthquake collapses the pyramid, followed by a hurricane that buries it, ending her excavation, and the military providing security, recalls her to active duty. Jessica fears her career is over. But her discovery leads her into the arms of the man who has haunted her dreams and her excavation. Her memory of him, securely locked in her subconscious, begins to re-emerge.
Xerxes has held her heart unconsciously captive since he rescued Jessica and her family several years earlier. As High Lord of Atlantis, he was forced to cloud their memories to conceal his identity and that of the under-water civilization he is charged to protect. Jessica’s discovery forces him to destroy the entrance. Now he will steal her away to Atlantis, and take Jessica as his wife to ensure her silence. However, a traitor inside his council threatens Atlantis threatens and puts Jessica’s life in deadly peril. With help from his brother, ruler of Pacifica, and an off-world ambassador, Xerxes risks all to rescue the only woman he loves from the traitor before it’s too late.
Just a quick taste of the book. Remember this is a full novel and it will take you many places, stretch your imagination and hopefully your heart.
