Here is a sneak peek at what you'll find in chapter 31:

Ethan jumped up, his eyes flashing with anger, "Ya ain't goin' nowhere, ya big oaf!" Ethan's southern speech and accent were becoming more pronounced as his anger built. "Yah, it took me some time t’ learn how t’ use this stuff, but ya ain't ignorant. Ya'll learn this stuff easy. What ahs havin’ problems with is how things work, like the travellators 'n' stuff, stuff ya ain't gotta know t’ use the stuff. You know ahs curious 'bout them things," he drawled. Ryan just looked at him; his mouth hanging open in surprise.

Chris shot Ryan a sheepish look. "Obviously you haven't seen him really pissed off. Wait 'till you experience his stubborn streak. You'll want to beat your head against the wall; or his. I want to stay, but I don't want to be a burden to you guys."

Heading Down The Long Road chapter 13

Chapter 13 of Heading Down The Long Road (the 4th book in The Long Road series) is up. You can find the chapter here.

If you have not read the first 12 chapters yet, you can find them here.

Here's a little preview of what you'll find:

Both men looked at Doctor Madison, expectantly. “The first thing I think we should do is get you hooked up with a mental health worker. What you’ve been through and what you will be going through during your physical rehab will take a toll on you physically, mentally and emotionally. I’m sure Greg is more than capable of taking care of your emotional needs and will be invaluable in helping you with your mental needs since he’s been through a similar experience, but there may be things he might not be able to help you with as much as he would want to.

“There’s absolutely nothing wrong with needing a little professional help on occasion. It’s not a sign of weakness or mental problems. Sometimes you just need to talk to a therapist.”

“That’s so true,” Greg said, “I had a therapist while I was going through my rehab there was a number of times I got really depressed and the therapist helped me out a great deal. I don’t know if I could have made it through without her.”

“But I have Greg to talk to,” Dave said, shooting a loving smile at Greg.

“That’s true. However, a situation may arise that, no matter how much Greg wants to help, he won’t know how to deal with it. I’m not saying it’s going to happen. I hope it doesn’t, but if it does, we’ll be ready to deal with it and help you along.”

Dave shrugged. I guess you’re right. I don’t have to talk with a therapist if I don’t want to, right?” He queried.

Heading Down The Long Road chapter 12

Chapter 12 of Heading Down The Long Road (the 4th book in The Long Road series) is up. You can find the chapter here.

If you have not read the first 11 chapters yet, you can find them here.

Here's a little preview of what you'll find:

“No. We were able to stop the bleeding and relieve the pressure in your skull. We believe that it was what caused your coma. We’re going to run some tests. I’m pretty sure your blindness is only temporary, a hold-over from the coma.  Can you see anything at all?”

“No, nothing. It’s like I’m in a room with no doors or windows or lights. Just blackness.

“Well, now that you’re back with us” Dave started crying softly, “we can get more accurate brain scans to see what’s going on. I can also have an ophthalmologist come and take a look at your eyes. But for now, I’m sure the two of you would like to be alone.” He turned to Jay and the Commissioner. “Let’s give them some alone time.” They left the room. Doctor Foster went to the nurse’s station. “The patients in room twelve are not to be disturbed for at least an hour. They have a lot of issues they have to work out, mainly the loss of Dave Barton’s leg and John Doe’s blindness, so I want them to be undisturbed for at least an hour or two. I’ll write out an order to cover taking vitals, etc.” He wrote out the order, then placed an ‘Examination in progress, do not disturb sign on the door’. “If you guys need anything, ring your call bell.” He made sure both men had their call buttons where they could reach them, then left closing the door behind him.

“Dave, you know I love you, right?”

“Yes.”

“I promised you that I would be with you during your rehab, and I’m going to keep that promise. However, if my blindness turns out to be permanent, you will need to find someone else to give you what I won’t be able to.”

“What do you mean by that?”

If you have just come across my blog and would like to read the entire story, you can click here to get to the Wednesday briefs page.

Here is a sneak peek at what you'll find in chapter 30:

“Yes, Ethan, come in and have a seat. I have a special assignment for you. In a few minutes we’re going to have a special guest who wants to meet you and discuss your work. Because of your unique situation, I ask that you only discuss your job, and do not leave the conference room until the meeting is over.”

“Okay.”

“Please head on down to the conference room. I’ll have someone bring our guest there shortly.” As soon as Ethan left, Duncan contacted the control room. “Tell Ryan to bring Chris to the conference room, please.”

* * * *

Chris held back while Ryan entered the conference room. “Ethan, are you ready to meet our guest?”

“Uh, yeah, I guess so,” the nervousness in Ethan’s voice was quite evident.

Ryan gave Ethan a supportive hug then went to open the door. “Please come in,” he said as he stepped out of the doorway.

Ethan rose to greet the visitor when Chris walked in grinning. He stood there in shock for a few moments before rushing Chris and pulling him into a rib-crushing hug. “I-I-I can’t believe you’re here,” he exclaimed, tears running down his face. “I’ve missed you more than you can imagine.”

Wednesday briefs - Love Across Time chapter 29


Chapter 29 of my Wednesday briefs story, Love Across Time is now up. You can read it by clicking here.

If you have just come across my blog and would like to read the entire story, you can click here to get to the Wednesday briefs page.

Here is a sneak peek at what you'll find in chapter 29:

It was finally discovered that only bringing Ethan forward brought the timeline back 95% back into its proper flow. While Ethan missed his family terribly, he settled into his new life with Ryan; the two of them building a life together, even as members of the TPC continued to try and figure out what was going on with the timeline. Everyone had believed that bringing Ethan forward in time would fix it. They were wrong.

World War 3 in 2474 and World War 4 in 2802 caused a lot of historical records from that time period to be lost. Ethan took a job working with Anne to try and restore those records, and correcting erroneous information. His knowledge of the time period was invaluable and he was often sought after by the educational system to do lectures. Still he was unhappy, which didn’t go unnoticed.

~~~~~

An exasperated Ryan knocked on Duncan’s door. When he looked up Ryan asked, “Duncan, do you have a minute. I need to talk to you about something important.” Duncan indicated for him to come in and have a seat.

If you have just come across my blog and would like to read the entire story, you can click here to get to the Wednesday briefs page.

I apologize that this wasn't posted earlier, but I was going through a rough time in my personal life. All is well now, so here is chapter 28, Chapter 29 will be posted Wednesday.

Here is a sneak peek at what you'll find in chapter 28:

Duncan looked at Ethan sitting in a chair in front of the controls. “How did you get here?”

“My brother found one of your return thingies and tricked me into holding onto it when he pushed the button and here I am.”

Duncan turned to Liam, raising his eyebrows, “and the paradox alarm didn’t go off?”

Liam shook his head, “Nope.”


Slamming the door open; Ryan charged into the room, looking around wildly. As soon as he saw Ethan he ran over and pulled him into a bone-crushing hug and smashed his lips down onto his. When they could no longer breathe, Ryan broke the kiss. Pressing his forehead against Ethan’s, he said, “I can’t believe you’re here. How did you get here?”
