I honestly didn’t think I’d manage to pull this off.
A few weeks ago, it was brought to my attention that November 11 this year is the one hundredth anniversary of Armistice Day — known as Remembrance Day by many western countries.
As a history nut, I was appalled I had nearly missed this significant date in modern history.
Mark suggested–half-jokingly–that I write a story and publish it on November 11.
It’s not often that I manage to squeeze a bonus story out of my production schedule and spare time, but I really wanted to honour the date, so I sat down with a calendar and started juggling like mad.
Late on Saturday, I uploaded the story for pre-order.
I am thrilled I managed it and even more pleased with the story.
Because of the time crunch, I asked Dar Albert, who designs all my covers, to build the cover before I even knew what the story premise was. I knew enough to describe to her what I wanted.
Dar, as usual, read my mind and super-over-delivered. The cover is fantastic–just the right mood and feeling for those last dreadful days in France in 1918.
A special story marking a moment in history…lest we forget.
On the one hundredth anniversary of Armistice Day, Jesse Hall, United States Marine and unsung hero, finds herself among a group of time-traveling vampires. She has been directed there by a century-old letter from her great-grandfather, instructing her to introduce herself with the phrase: “I’m not wearing a red shirt.”
So begins a dash through time to save a man in the very last minutes of the Great War, which in turn will save eight million other lives…

A Time Travel Vampire Romance Novelette
Time And Remembrance is available for pre-order everywhere, including Amazon, as we’re well under the 90 day mark.
Unlike my usual preorders, I am not discounting the book or releasing it a week early on my site. The full retail price is only $2.99.
The story is to be released on November 11. If I could figure out how to manage it, I would set the release for 11 a.m. on the 11th of the 11th…but I don’t have quite that much control, alas!
