Please welcome the very lovely J C Brennan. This lady loves to help other indie authors and posts the links to their books in her own. Which I think is rather splendid.
So, let’s find out a little bit about Janet and what she writes.
This book has been in the making for some time. I started by just writing poems when I was younger. The thought of writing a novel was always on my mind but I was not sure if I could actually write a full novel. When I decided that I was going to give it a shot the words just began to flow and before I knew it this wonderful story emerged. The second one, now in the editing process was the same. My greatest hope for this first novel is that people enjoy the story and can get lost in it for a moment.
About me, well I grew up in a small village in Michigan call Skidway Lake. The small town live was a fantastic way to grow up but I always wanted more. My life was a difficult one and being a single mother most of my life made me realize that will power is a person’s greatest friend.
A FINE LINE : The Beginning
When you are a soldier, the thought of getting back to your family, without being surrounded by a pine box, is what keeps you going. This line of thinking was no different for William T. Healthaway, a Union soldier fighting in the battle of Pickett’s Mill. However, William would find out living through this battle would only throw him into a whirlwind of an abnormal variety of hell. He had no way of knowing a more sinister war awaiting him when and if he did return home. The war awaiting his homecoming was a war that had been raging for hundreds of years; a war that would lead him into a world he had never known or believed existed. After his commitment to a battle of freedom, William is vaulted into a merciless coldblooded war of the ancients. He is plunged into a world of mystery filled with intrigue, deception, death, temptation, and powers. However, with every miraculous power revealed comes with sinister evil. He finds himself in a world that takes him beyond any reality he once had known.
