The Hotel

Book Series

by Michael James

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Urban Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOOK SERIES BLURB:

No one has ever escaped from the Hotel at the End of Time. Until now.

Vain only wants to be left alone, but the Hotel has other plans. Forces will align against her: a group of multi-dimensional felons collectively named The Wyatts; and their leader, Trick, a mild-to-medium psychopath with a fondness for impractical jokes.

The only way forward is to go back. Back to the one place in the world she swore she'd never return.

Back to the Hotel.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOOK BLURB – THE HOTEL AT THE END OF THE TIME – BOOK ONE:

Vain is the only person to ever escape from the Hotel at the end of time. On her way out, she took their prized possession: A Padlock that grants immortality.

They will do anything to get it back.

The forces of the Hotel are aligned against her: mundane items turned into weapons; a group of multi-dimensional felons collectively named The Wyatts; and their leader, Trick, a mild-to-medium psychopath with a fondness for impractical jokes.

Everything changes when Vain meets Emma, a timid grad student with impossible and terrifying powers. Together, they are propelled into an adventure that will see them battle the Wyatts, blow up several objects of significant value, and quite by accident, discover a way to stop the Hotel.

Even with Emma, Vain has a lot of problems to deal with.

She’s exhausted from being hunted.

Stopping the Hotel might kill them.

She has a hangnail.

But Vain is resourceful. Vain is clever.

And she always has a plan.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOOK BLURB – THE WELL AT THE BOTTOM OF EVERYTHING – BOOK TWO:

Vain thought destroying the Portal to the Hotel at the End of Time would mean freedom for her and Roman, but her happy ever after is coming to an end.

A horrible mistake and a stray bullet force her to infiltrate the Hotel and contend with a new and terrible power: The Well at the Bottom of Everything.

Friendships will be tested. Loyalties will be broken.

The Hotel will have its revenge.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT ONE:

From The Hotel at the End of Time – Book One:

The woman glanced over. “I’m Emma, by the way. Thank you for helping me.”

“I’m Vain.”

Emma blinked and positioned the rear-view mirror so it showed Vain her reflection. “Is that better?”

Vain shook her head. “My name. My actual name is Vain.”

“Are you, like, a street artist?”

Vain sighed. “I’m just me.”

“How did you know who those men were? How did you know they were after me?”

“They’re not men,” replied Vain. “They’re things. Their name is Wyatt. Their only job is to find people like you and take them back to a place called the Hotel. It’s a place I escaped from.”

“How are they all called Wyatt? Why do they look the same?”

“They’re from alternate Earths.” Vain waved her hand, shooing away the explanation.

“I don’t believe you,” Emma said. “I’m sorry. I know I’m supposed to humor crazy, but I’m exhausted. Please tell me the truth.”

“How about this? You go first. Explain how you threw a person with your mind in a way that doesn’t violate a couple dozen natural laws, and once you’re done, I’ll come up with a better explanation for duplicate psychopaths from various incarnations of Earth.”

GUEST POST:

The Craziest Thing I’ve Done in the Name of Research

This book is a simple tale about a time-displaced Hotel on the edge of time where people are turned into Human Batteries. I know what you're thinking. This again?

The story follows the adventure of Vain, the only person to ever escape from the Hotel at the End of Time. I knew it wasn't enough to write a hilarious character that goes on some of the most entertaining adventures you can read about. No, to really understand her motivation, I knew I'd need to create a Portal to a Hotel on edge of time, to get a feel for the place. It wasn't enough to imagine it; I needed to live it.

FYI - it's awful. The horror was unrelenting. As in, the horror refused to relent. Not even for a second.

I can't tell you exactly how I created this magic Portal, but the details are covered in some fair amount of detail in the book. I can tell you this much - frogs do not play as significant a role as you'd expect. Seriously, like you need zero frogs. I know! I couldn't believe it either and I don't want to tell you how many frogs I went through in the early days before I figured this out (hint: a lot).

For the second book, The Well at the Bottom of Everything, I had to research bra underwire. I am not making this up. I actually learned how to pick locks using bra underwire. It is almost, but not quite, impossible.

AUTHOR BIO:

Michael James spent his formative years writing, and when he wasn't writing, he was writing. A mistaken belief that a "real" job would be more satisfying led him down a dark path that did not involve writing but did involve meetings. Fortunately, he has since course-corrected and is back on the right (write? Ha!) path. The Hotel at the End of Time is not his first book, but it is the one with the most Hotels in it.

He lives in Canada with his family. When he's not writing, he does Canadian things - saying sorry a lot, being polite, talking about the weather, you know how it goes.
