The Space Between Time

Expected Publication Date: June 20th, 2019

Genre: Contemporary Fiction/ Dark Comedy

There are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on Earth…

Emma Maria Rossini appears to be the luckiest girl in the world. She’s the daughter of a beautiful and loving mother, and her father is one of the most famous film actors of his generation. She’s also the granddaughter of a rather eccentric and obscure Italian astrophysicist.

But as her seemingly charmed life begins to unravel, and Emma experiences love and tragedy, she ultimately finds solace in her once-derided grandfather’s Theorem on the universe.

The Space Between Time is humorous and poignant and offers the metaphor that we are all connected, even to those we have loved and not quite lost.

About the Author

download

I was born in Paisley, central Scotland, which wasn’t my fault. That week, Eddie Calvert with Norrie Paramor and his Orchestra were Top of the Pops, with Oh, Mein Papa, as sung by a young German woman remembering her once-famous clown father. That gives a clue to my age, not my musical taste.

I was brought up in the west of Scotland and graduated from the University of Edinburgh. I still have the scroll, but it’s in Latin, so it could say anything.

I then worked briefly as a street actor, baby photographer, puppeteer and restaurant dogsbody before becoming a journalist. I started in Glasgow and ended up in London, covering news, features and politics. I interviewed motorbike ace Barry Sheene, Noel Edmonds threatened me with legal action and, because of a bureaucratic muddle, I was ordered out of Greece.

I then took a year to travel round the world, visiting 19 countries. Highlights included being threatened by a man with a gun in Dubai, being given an armed bodyguard by the PLO in Beirut (not the same person with a gun), and visiting Robert Louis Stevenson’s grave in Samoa. What I did for the rest of the year I can’t quite remember

Surprisingly, I was approached by a government agency to work in intelligence, which just shows how shoddy government recruitment was back then. However, it turned out to be very boring and I don’t like vodka martini.

Craving excitement and adventure, I ended up as a PR consultant, which is the fate of all journalists who haven’t won a Pulitzer Prize, and I’ve still to listen to Oh, Mein Papa.

I am married with two grown-up children and live in central Scotland. And that’s about it.

Book Cover

Didi Oviatt has a new book coming out, and I’m so excited to reveal the cover of her upcoming release, Justice for Belle! Here’s a sneak peek for you! Love that cover. I don’t know if I read it because it feels creepy. 😉

Justice for Belle

Expected Publication Date: May 15th, 2018

Genre: Psychological Thriller

Publisher: Creativia

Ahnia has a very dicey past – one that is scratching under the surface, just dying to get out.

She’s hit rock bottom, broke and desperate to be on top again. When she finds herself partnering up with man she hardly knows, and who’s utterly untouchable, she’s forced out of her comfort zone and left to question her own sanity.

Will Ahnia and Mac’s dangerous decision be a success, or will she find herself in the clutches of an unforgiving force, brought about by her childhood sin?

In this nail-biting thrill ride, no one is as they seem… and no one is truly safe with those they trust.

Excerpt

“You get lost?” Mac’s voice rings loudly at my side.

I jump, knocking a cold glass bottle of booze over with my arm. I grab it back up with trembling hands. I straighten myself to a stand and hand it over before grabbing two more for myself. Mac takes a step closer to me no sooner than the fridge door shuts completely.

The scent of him is just as fresh as the first day we met; only tonight there is a muskier underlining. The delicious smell of his natural skin, no doubt. My knees weaken, and I take a step back. The center of my back touches the counter causing me to reach back with my free hand and grab ahold of it for balance.

“What are you doing?” I ask desperately under my breath.

“You were taking a while, so I thought I’d check up on you.” His voice is wanting and raspy.

“I’m fine.”

I duck and spin, maneuvering my body around him. I’m careful not to brush our flesh together. He props himself against the exact spot of the counter that I just left by the hip, his gaze fixated on me. I look away, twist the top off of my first drink and guzzle the entire thing as if my life depends on it. He, too, takes a drink, but barely a sip. The serious clench of his jaw tells me that he means business. My chest tightens.

“Why are you really here?” I ask.

“A few reasons, actually.”

“Which are?”

“I’m trying to decide which one I wanna tell you first.”

He takes another sip and continues to stare. I toss my empty bottle into the trash can, and twist open the top of my next. It’s quiet enough to hear a pin drop. Aside from my own heavy breath, I hear only haunting silence.

“Start with whatever it is you’re so afraid to say.” I breathe, my heart quickening another pace.

Mac takes a few quick steps forward, again closing the gap between us. The wildness of his eyes and his hair reminds me of a lion, ready to pounce. Soon I’m backed against the wall, with our chests pressed together. I stare at his mouth. His lips are the perfect shade of pink. I want to lick them. I tuck my own in and bite the insides lowering my head…denying him access. He places his palms against the wall, beside my shoulders, and lowers his forehead to mine.

“You’re not who I thought you were,” he says, the hops in his breath mixing with my own.

I close my eyes tightly and breathe him in. The image I once had of his fists closing in around the neck of an unknown man as he shook the life from him is all I can think about. God, I wish I could stop enjoying the thought of death. I can feel his heartbeat through my shirt and my nipples harden. The heat from his body screams danger, and the pool of nerves between my legs wants it.

“Mac,” I whisper, our foreheads still together.

I try and lift my arms to push him away, but can’t. Like dead weight, they stay motionless at my sides. I shake my head against his. This is wrong.

“Ahnia, I know we can’t do this. I just… I…”

Mac slaps an open palm against the wall. It’s an angry, powerful blow a mere foot from my face. I jump, feeling the vibration of it against my entire body.

“F**k!” He shouts, and pulls himself away.

He runs a fist through his hair and storms off. After helping himself to another beer from my fridge, he disappears back into the living room, leaving me behind to gather myself. I take a couple deep breaths and run my shaking hands down the front of my shirt a few times.

I’m scared to death of him right now, but I don’t want him to leave either. I can’t kick him out, what if he comes at me? Or worse, what if I wind up throwing myself at him. I don’t trust me at this point, any more than I don’t trust him.

Brainstorming when to #launch my #book #paranormalcrimefiction #publicationdate #coverreveal #Booktrailerreveal #booktour #editing #proofreading #betareading

Leave a comment Standard
  • 1 month for editing
  • 1 month for proofreading
  • 1 month for beta reading
  • 8 weeks to prepare for a cover reveal
  • 8 weeks to prepare for a book trailer reveal
  • 8 weeks to prepare for a book tour. So the book needs to be released during the book tour. Those dates needs to be checked with Shannon if they are available for the book tour and if not, add on a couple of weeks.

Today’s date is 4/24/2018

  • Editing may finish by 5/24/2018
  • Proofreading may finish by 6/24/2018
  • Beta reading may finish by 7/24/2018
  • Cover reveal may be good to do around 9/18/2018
  • Book trailer reveal may be good to do around 11/6/2018
  • Book tour may be good to do around 1/1/2019 – BAD!

By going in that order, my book doesn’t get published until January which is Christmas/ New Years/and other happy-joy-joy holidays which don’t work with a crime fiction novel.

Late September and October makes more sense. So, I need to rethink the timeline.

These dates may change if proofreading finishes in two weeks for instance and beta reading in two weeks. I only win a month and still get the book published in beginning of December! Still happy-joy-joy. HOWEVER, the case happens during Christmas so it may not necessarily be a bad thing…. BUT, the case happening during the holidays doesn’t really do anything for the case.

Today’s date is 4/24/2018

  • Editing may finish by 5/24/2018
  • Proofreading may finish by 6/24/2018
  • Beta reading may finish by 7/24/2018

Cover reveal and book trailer reveal don’t have to happen after beta reading. The important thing is to have the book cover and get Thomas working on the book trailer. To create a good book trailer, he needs to be able to read the editing and proofread book so I can send it to him around the same time as beta readers get it.

So, Today’s date is 4/24/2018

  • Editing may finish by 5/24/2018

What if give the same deadline for the cover? Or Finish cover by 6/1/2018 So, if I do 8 weeks to prepare for the cover reveal.

  • The cover reveal will be around 7/27/2018 around the time when beta readers finish reading the book and will hopefully provide small reviews that I can share with the book trailer reveal and the book tour.
  • Book trailer reveal may be good to do around 9/21/2018
  • Book tour may be good to do around 11/16/2018

HOWEVER

Finish Cover by 6/1 and having a cover reveal around 7/27 is a long time? I need to give Shannon 8 weeks notice for the cover reveal so what if I ask for a cover reveal to be around 6/15/2017. So, I need to tell Shannon about the cover reveal about 4/20/2018 and she’s at her own wedding at the moment!!! Anyway, I’ll try getting that date with Shannon (plus I have a killer idea for the cover reveal and the cover reveal needs to happen on a FRIDAY. If she takes to my idea when she comes back for that date, then we’re good for the plan!! *Evil plan.

So if we do cover reveal on 6/15 then we have 8 weeks for the book trailer.

  • Book trailer reveal may be good to do around 8/10/2018
  • Book tour may be good to do around 10/5/2018

So, its October for publication date! Good for mysteries and my book is a paranormal crime fiction.

This just took about two hours to figure out the publication date and it’s still not set in stone. HOWEVER, I like the final timeline and hopefully we can stick to it. ^_^ The book gets released a week or two before Halloween which is good. People are into mysteries and not reading thrillers yet or are and in the mood for a light mystery with mafia, vampires, and witches.

——

How do you choose a publication date? Do you base it around a holiday? Do you calculate the date? Do you just choose a random date? Do you think about book tours and how much notice you need to give? What does it take?

Until next time,

AK
