Poor count morelli (my unpublished historical novel)! He has been second-guessed many times in the past year, and now his appearance is delayed because I’m more excited about my time travel novel better.
This new novel is about a time traveling Dryad. It combines 17th century history with modern eco-feminism. What’s eco-femininsm, you might ask? I’m not quite sure myself, but I’m told my novel has it. Basically, it involves environmental issues, and it’s got a female protagonist who solves problems in a feminine way. That doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of “manly” battles, chases, and explosions. So, as usual with my writing, it’s kind of a mixed bag of everything.
Dryad will come out a few months from now, but I want to make sure everybody is as excited about it as I am. So to begin, here is what it’s about.
But when the rain forest is threatened by a timber corporation, it is Solena who is chosen to prevent the disaster by going undercover in a human company.
What she discovers goes much deeper than simply the fate of the rainforest. The future of the world could be at stake.
The humans are going back in time in order to extract natural resources and circumvent environmental laws, and Solena is swept along on a journey back to the 17th century.
The dryad finds herself falling for the heir to the timber corporation, the handsome Rodney Love, but as her adventures take her back in time and deeper into the rainforest, she finds the possibility of another love, one that transcends time itself…
Who will win the dryad’s heart: a smooth-talking billionaire who graces the cover of Narcissism Carnival or a wild and unruly jungle warrior?
Are you getting excited??? Let me know what you think!
