A Taste of TIME LOST (spoiler alert)

If you don’t want any spoilers to TIME LOST, don’t read! I’m giving you some hints of what to expect from the book! (These aren’t major spoilers, they’re things you would learn in the very first chapter.)

There were times writing TIME SPENT when I wanted to tear my hair out (what’s left of it). Invisible characters, alternate reality versions of people, fractured time jumps, mystery characters…how did I get myself into this? I kept asking.

As I began plotting out the first chapter of Volume 3: TIME LOST, I realized…IT’S EVEN CRAZIER. There’s still all that stuff from Volume 2, only now…

TIME LOST doesn’t take place in the world we know. The characters are trapped in a prison world created from their nightmares. The place is designed to keep them under guard, so no one can be trusted. Even the time jumps really can’t be trusted anymore because time itself was shattered in Volume 2, meaning the flashback scenes no longer have integrity. Certain elements carry through the time jumps, mixing past and present. Some characters can now see the time jumps, and even CROSS THEM, moving back and forth in time, and across the story. Yes, a character from the present can jump INTO A FLASHBACK and then OUT OF IT AGAIN.

In the first two books, the characters tried to solve a mystery of what happened to them, represented by “mystery segments”, flashes of scenes from the bus in Volume 1 and the rooftop in Volume 2. In TIME LOST, the mystery segments occur in the FUTURE, one person can actually see them and is using the flashes to figure out what they need to do to survive. Naturally, one of the first things he sees is HIMSELF GETTING KILLED.

I’ll be getting started with the actual writing of the book as soon as THE WIZARD IN MY WINDOW is released, and you can expect “313” Volume 3: TIME LOST hopefully in April.

Assuming I survive writing it!

    Looking forward to reading Volume 3! 🙂
    I’ll feature the review, then. If you would like to be featured in my ’10 Statements’ column, just let me know.

    Take your time, there are still gals and guys out there who need to read Volumes 1 & 2, first. 😉

      Yes but there are also those who are waiting until all 3 are out before reading the whole thing! 😉 As for your column, sure anytime, I’d be honored.
