Fireworks

GENRE:  Sweet Romance/Time Travel

BLURB:

After Sarah’s grandfather passes away, it’s up to Sarah to pack up a lifetime’s worth of his possessions as she comes to terms with her grief. As she goes through his possessions, she finds a picture. The faded black and white picture seems innocuous at first, but something draws her towards it. As she studies the picture and the man inside it, she forgets her grief momentarily.

However, there’s more to the faded picture of a soldier in 1940s New York than she realizes, and soon she unexpectedly meets him—but he hasn’t aged a day. As they get to know each other, Sarah’s feelings begin to grow…

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:

Hours later, a huge crash woke her up and she found herself sitting straight up in her bed. Moving the hair away from her face, she slowly crawled out of bed slowly and tip toed to the door. Before she opened the door, she grabbed the wooden bat gripping it firmly as she opened the door. Cursing under her breath as she hears the door creaking. Seeing a huge shadow in her living room, readying the bat in her hands Sarah swings it. Instead it slips her hands flying across the living room with a resounding ding.
       
“Grenade!” James shouted as he ducked hoping that his helmet and the object in front of him protected him. He looked again in the dark, why does this object look like a sofa. He huddles down to the ground and waits, but nothing happens. Slowly holding onto his helmet, he gets on his hands and knees only to be confronted by yellow eyes and a wet nose. It swipes and hisses at him, a cat! James falls back and hits a table, knocking a lamp into the floor. He turns around and sees it in pieces.
       
Cursing under her breath and no time to call the cops, Sarah charged at him in full speed. Jumping on him and punching him in the face. “Who the hell are you and why are you in my home?” Sarah yelled at the tops of her lungs. Blinking, James took a second after the punch to recover to look at his attacker. Who was this woman and where was he?
       
Grabbing her hands and holding back from his face, “I was fighting Nazis five minutes ago and now I’m. Where the hell am I lady?”

“You are in New York and how would you be fighting Nazi’s? It’s 2013 and I know Nazi’s still exist but not in the form you’re talking about. You got the wrong house buddy, so I suggest you get up and leave,” Sarah said getting up and walking away from him to compose herself. Why did he look so familiar? She found a good lamp, praying that it would turn on and it did. She could see this man a bit better. He looked like someone who came out of a convention.

James composing himself the best he could, stood up and could see all around him. He went from the battlefield and suddenly was in a place that looked like something out of one of those science fiction books he read.  “This is some kind of joke,” he said standing up and looking around him, in a trance like he was in a dream. “This is all a dream and I’m going to wake up.”

GUEST POST:

The Top Three People Dead or Alive That I've Always Wanted to Meet

All three of these people I would love to have over for a dinner. Just sit all together and have a conversation about everything I listed below. Each individual is so complex and interesting. I would love to see what they thought about certain things in their time along with what they thought about the world today.

Howard Carter


Howard Carter is the man who found King Tut in the early 1900's. I love archaeology so I've always wanted to meet him to learn more about the Egyptians. He's had so information and was such an interesting person. He never married and lived in Egypt. There are so many questions that I would love to ask him about Egypt and what drove him.

James Dean


What's there not to like about James Dean? He's such an iconic actor and an interesting person as well. I would love to ask him about his roles and his inspiration. From the biographies and books I've read, he was such a compassionate and opinionated person.

Steve Jobs


I worked for Apple for several years and never got to meet the man. I just wanted to ask so much about what made him think of some of the greatest inventions he has helped create.
