Backliner for "Escape From Zarahemla"

Hey, I thought I'd share the backliner that I conjured up with a little help from my publishers. Backliners for a novel are always a little overstated (and slightly corny), but I think I like the way this captures the tie-in this story will have with the Tennis Shoes series. Your comments are welcomed!!!

As the Passageway Reopens,
Mysteries and Peril Emerge.

It's been six months since the inexplicable passage to Zarahemla disintegrated and disappeared. Kerra and Brock McConnell have been reunited with their long-lost father, but an emptiness remains in Kerra's heart as she watches her Nephite warrior, Kiddoni, fade away in a vortex of time—possibly forever.

As a violent flash flood washes through the forested hollow near Leeds, Utah, it reawakens The Whistlers and reignites the mystical rift that leads to ancient America. Kerra and Brock quickly learn of multiple secrets their father did not reveal about his 12-year sojourn in the first century A.D. Everyone soon realizes that such puzzles will have mind-bending ramifications for their lives and draw them into a predicament as lethal as obsidian blades, with enemies as ruthless as the darkest savages, and evils that could destroy their family once and for all.

In the fury of adventure, Kerra and Brock McConnell find themselves in league with familiar friends from other Chris Heimerdinger novels, fighting alongside these valiant heroes and binding together Escape From Zarahemla with the wildly imaginative Tennis Shoes Adventure Series!

Revel in the wondrous spectacle as two
series of adventure novels merge into one!

Escape From Zarahemla: Manuscript Delivered

That's right. What more can I add to that? Last night at about midnight I emailed to my publisher an attachment of the sequel to Passage to Zarahemla, entitled Escape From Zarahemla. The whole experience was kind of surreal, especially so late at night. I was so wrapped in every word and phrase of this novel that I felt like my objectivity had flown the coup as to whether this doggone thing was any good.

Amazing what 24 hours will do. This is a darn good book, if I do say so myself. A roller-coaster ride. Some readers may find the ending more satisfying than any book since The Golden Crown. Yup, plot elements actually resolve. Not all of it. But a lot. And the feeling is sorta cool. Dang, I like this book. It's a fun romp, not only in a unique Book of Mormon time period, but also utilizing time travel and space/time concepts that I hadn't explored before in quite the same way. It's fun. Or at least I think it's fun. How long have I been doin' this? Twenty-two years? Nice thing about it is that I've never written a book where I ever felt I short-ended the reader. Every ounce of imagination that I can muster is always brought to bear. And I think readers appreciate the results. One lazy book can compromise decades of trust. I hope I never do that to fans, no matter the money or rewards.

My publisher is apparently looking at early October for its release. I'm sure I'll pre-sell autographed copies as soon as I learn the final price or get some kind of cover. Like I said in an earlier blog, the book is longer and much more involved than the original Passage story. It's better than the original, but way too expensive to make into a movie. The trained jaguars alone...Anyway, Kerra McConnell is such a rich character with many layers and edges. I don't want to spoil any surprises, but I'll confess that there are many, and that some surprises should offer fans a satisfying adrenaline rush.

In the meantime, help me out by buy off all these Amazon books that I've posted. Go to: http://www.amazon.com/shops/A3DJOE9ISPI8WO

Thanks for your faith, your endurance, and your readership. I hope this goes down as another heart-pounding Heimerdinger adventure.
