FROM BACK TO FRONT and INTO THE MIDDLE AGAIN

‘Osiris’ original painting by author V Knox

‘TOMORROW AGAIN’ book three of the Bede Series middle-grade time-slip trilogy is complete, summarized here in its defining elements.

BACK BLURB:

My grandmother’s best friend was the ghost of my daughter whom she met sixty years before I was born. I’m still trying to sort it out. I’m seventeen and have yet to meet my child’s mother. 

Our family doesn’t live in the normal world. Time comes and goes in no particular order until I slay a three-headed dragon lady guarding an ancient curse. – Christopher Stratford Smyth, 2018

‘TWINTER’ – is a combination of the words ‘twin’ and ‘winter’. A group of teenagers, ghosts, and twice-borns form a group called the Twinters to defend the first portal of time in order to prevent earth from becoming a ball of blue ice orbiting the sun.

‘THE TWICE-BORNS’ – are an elite selection of historical geniuses who reincarnate together in the village of Bede to defend the cradle of civilization by settling an old score with an ancient curse.

THE SYNOPSIS: A teenage science buff must time travel to the distant past via ancient Egypt, Mars, and Pangea to prevent a natural disaster threatening the planet while his twin sister, a natural mystic, remains on the home front defending Bede Hall, their sentient ancestral home from the ‘Furies’, the same metaphysical enemy as her brother.

Bede Hall is a disgruntled stately home, haunted by family ghosts, that lies within a pocket of protected liminal space in the north of England built atop the ruins of prehistoric Britain. Hadrian’s Wall has its back. And a group of twice-borns, the Great Sphinx of Egypt, a colony of royal Egyptian cats, a host of ghosts, a band of animated topiaries, an assortment of woodland elementals, and the Green Man cover the Hall’s rooms, doors, and chimneys, a Saxon round tower, a seventeenth-century maze, an extraordinary sundial, a haunted cold spot in the attic known as the Winter Room, extensive grounds, several time portals, its legacy, and not least, its dignity.

BACK COVER ART:

The green painting shown is the restored Egyptian god, Osiris.

FRONT COVER ART:

The blue painting shown is the Egyptian god, Osiris, under the curse of winter.

*Formatting and publishing ‘TOMORROW AGAIN’ on Amazon as a Kindle and in print is now in progress.
