At long last, DOORWAYS TO EXTRA TIME is released! (Well, tomorrow morning, anyway):

In our busy world of meetings and microwaves, car radios and cellphones, people always wish they could get an extra hour in the day. But what if they could? Doorways to Extra Time is an anthology that explores ways to get extra time (be it an hour, a day, or a decade) and the impact it would have–whether upon a single life, a family or an entire world.

I’m very proud of this anthology and all the great stories and authors: the proactive Erica Cameron, the across-the-pond Martin Feekins, lil ol me, pastcracker L.M. Graham, timekeeper R.E. Gofstein, catwizard Melina Gunnett, the learned Walter H. Hunt, my friend Betsy Miller, Susan “In the nick of time” Mittmann, timemaster Brenda Moguez, mysterian Jenny Moore, demonkeeper Ira Nayman, time twister Errick A. Nunnally, the estimable Jody Lynn Nye, the not-photoshopped Kate Saturday, my other good friend Gayle Schultz, Rich “The Closer” Storrs, gameplayer Keshia Swaim, not-for-sale Aimee Weinstein, and my coeditor and friend Trisha J. Wooldridge … whew!

Trisha, my coeditor, commissioned the above awesome piece of stained glass from Renee Goodwin at Stained Glass Creations and Beyond … isn’t it beautiful? We’ll be raffling it off at the DOORWAYS release party, Sunday, September 1 at 1pm at Ray’s in the City in Atlanta … just up the road from the Hyatt, one of the main hotels of Dragon Con!

I’m sure there will be more events, giveaways, and so forth in the coming weeks and months. Like or share our Facebook and Google+ pages for more information, or just go to Amazon and get a copy.

Phew. 2 years of work, and 2 minutes to the cafe closes. So … enjoy!

Um … it’s not out yet, gang

I appreciate the reviews … but the book’s not out yet. Only the editors, copyeditors, closer, formatter and publisher have seen it yet, and I’m pretty sure that none of them jumped the gun. 😉 Hang on a bit… DOORWAYS will be out at the end of August from Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble, and will have its premiere during Dragon Con.

Unless, of course … you have your own doorway to extra time. In that case … review away.
