‘The Door into War’– Release


I’ve been told by Rebel ePublishers that ‘The Door into War’ will be published on 11 November 2016.  As it deals with World War One, publication on 11 November – Armistice Day – seems appropriate.

The kindle version is already up for pre-order on Amazon – here’s the buy link.

The story is a science fiction tale of time travel, about how modern politicians arrange for social undesirables to be sent back in time to the First World War to help resolve the allies’ manpower crisis.

Here’s the blurb:

Archaeologist Rachel McKenzie expects the excavation of a World War One bunker to yield routine results – until she uncovers modern artefacts among a handful of skeletons in British uniforms. DNA testing provides evidence of a government scheme to address Britain’s shortage of soldiers in 1918 by abducting 21st century citizens and sending them back in time to fight the Germans. The authorities from both eras are desperate to keep ‘Operation Trench’ secret, and ruthlessly stamp down on anyone who might expose them.

Despite her scepticism about time travel, Rachel needs to persuade the public that ‘Operation Trench’ is much more than a conspiracy theory dreamed up by cranks. Battling against ever increasing odds to expose the plot, Rachel endangers herself and her colleagues as the government ruthlessly culls those they suspect are privy to their plan.

Can Rachel make the truth public before she and her colleagues become victims of the very scheme they are trying to stop? Or will those in power take brutal revenge against her?

As always, a big thank you to everyone who made the book happen: too many to list here, but I must mention Jayne for both taking the book on and for a thorough editing job.

  1. Getting married is the most important event in a Jordanian's lifetime, Cheap Jordan Shoes, and weddings are major social events. Weddings are grand affairs, and, in terms of cost, they are second only to buying a home. As a result, many Jordanian men from low-and middle-income families do not marry until they reach their thirties because they cannot afford to marry sooner. Traditionally, however, Jordanians get married when they are in their twenties.

    Most couples meet through family introductions. Meetings are usually arranged by the female members of the bride's or groom's families. At the time of marriage, the bride receives a mohr (MA-hurr), or dowry, from the groom. The woman can spend, save, or remit the dowry as she chooses. The amount set for the mahr varies according to family circumstances.

    Islam is the official religion of Jordan. Ninety-two percent of the population belongs to the Sunni branch of Islam, but the country also has a small number of Shi'ite Muslims. All Muslims believe in one God — Allah — and that Muhammad was his prophet. Unlike Shi'ite Muslims who regard Muhammad's direct descendants as the only legitimate leaders of the Islamic world, Sunni Muslims accept other claims to leadership.
