We Have Sprouters

Just a few sunflowers left to sprout.

Saturday morning thought: Isn’t it amazing how a seemingly lifeless dry seed, that’s been in a paper packet for years, suddenly reawakens when it’s put in soil and watered and becomes a living plant. Magic.

Exclusive Excerpt: The Gimmal Ring by Karen Koski

“Gage…Gage…Gage?” No answer. “Gage Gimmal, where are you? I know you’re home you little dweeb!” Gwen shouted, impatience showing in her voice. She stomped up the stairs to his room and didn’t bother knocking, she walked right in.

Gage was getting his groove on in front of his fan, singing along with the radio. “A-hem.” Gwen cleared her throat loudly.  “Okay, wrap this up, Little Gaga,” she said. “Dad is on his way home and he wants to talk to us.”

Without missing a beat, Gage launched into a new song, singing louder:

“She is fam-i-ly.

I’ve got an annoying sister – poor me.

She is fam-i-ly.

Get out Gwen – just leave!” 

“Whatever. Just get your butt downstairs.” Gwen said, hiding her smile as she left the room.

She wants the ring and she wants it bad!

About The Gimmal Ring:

Gwendolyn Gimmal desperately wants an invitation to the mysterious Gimmal Gala where her family’s coveted ring is bestowed upon new inductees. It’s not that she particularly likes bling, but because she knows it will unlock exciting secrets and reveal what she believes will be her true life’s path. Her younger brother, Gage, also wants to attend the party, but mostly for the food.

After finding her way into the hidden gala, Gwen learns that The Gimmal Ring is not only a piece of jewellery, but also a secret society of people. Things go awry when their parents are kidnapped from the Gala and held for ransom. Gwen and her brother must solve the clues and find the hidden formula the kidnappers have demanded by midnight, or they will never see their family members again.

Their newly discovered enhanced abilities, while fun, are not completely reliable. Cracking newspaper codes, deciphering invisible maps, and playing a high stakes game of Enigma Machine Twister, are just some of the challenges they must overcome if they are to succeed in time. The adventure starts when they flush themselves in The Tele-Potti, a teleporting commode, and it all goes down the drain from there.

Read Another Excerpt:
The hair on her arms stood at attention. She lay on her stomach in the dark, peering through a gap in the curtains, her body rigid with anticipation. Today was the day. Gwendolyn Gimmal was sure of it. She could feel it in her bones…or maybe it was just the hard floor? She had finally learned to slow her breathing to an undetectable level without passing out. Gwen would not be caught off guard. When it arrived, she would be ready. She was stealth, a statue, an invisible ninja.
“She knows we can see her, right?” a voice asked.
Gwen jumped. Her body hovered above the floor for a split second before it thudded down. Her boney hips hit first, breaking her fall. Gwen rolled over and glared at her brother Gage. She wiped at the black paint under her eyes. It was the third time he had snuck up on her…this week. Clearly, she was not ready for the life-changing event to occur.
“You know Gwen, it’s like waiting for Santa Claus. If he sees you, he won’t come to give you gifts,” Gage said, very matter of fact.
Back to practicing my belly crawl down the hallway at 3 am, she thought.
“Ahh, hi,” a voice said.
Just then Gwen realized there was someone standing beside her brother.
“Sorry to interrupt…whatever it is that you’re doing,” said Josh, a boy from her class, “but I forgot to get those math notes from you.”
Gage munched noisily on crackers. “Oh ya, I let Josh in the back door when I came home.” He shoved more in his mouth. They watched as crumbs fell to the floor.
“Really good hiding spot,” Josh said. Gwen just looked at him. “Yup, really, reaally good.” Josh rocked back on his heels and whistled faintly. “The uhh, black make-up is umm, interesting,” he said making swiping gestures under his eyes with his index fingers.
“Awkward,” Gage said.
“Ugh.” Gwen groaned and flipped back over onto her stomach, covering herself with a blanket. Back to square one. “I’m not worthy!” she moaned.
“What is she doing?” Josh whispered.
Gage shrugged. “Waiting for an invitation to a party.”
Josh pondered that for a moment. “Weird.”
“Welcome to my world,” Gage said and left the room.
Gwen knew this wasn’t just any party. It was the Gimmal Gala, where she was sure wonderful, secretive, life altering things happened.

Ye Olde Caves of Nottingham – Guest Post by Sharon Ledwith

Ye Olde Caves of Nottingham… (The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis)

nottingham castle rock caves

In my middle-grade/young adult time travel book, The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis, my feisty group of adolescent characters’ first mission lands then in England in 1214 where they must find a young Robin Hood and his merry band of teens. Legend has it that one of Robin Hood’s haunts (besides the famous Sherwood Forest) was the village of Nottingham. When I undertook the meticulous research needed to craft my novel, I came across an interesting fact about Nottingham I had never known: beneath the houses, shops, and offices of Nottingham are hundreds of caves. My eyes bugged and imagination went into overdrive, while I gathered fact after fact about the Nottingham caves. In truth, it was similar to panning for gold nuggets.

The end result of the information I gleaned is woven into my story, but I’d like to share some other interesting facts about these not-so-famous caves:

  • The earliest written record of Nottingham’s caves comes from a Welsh monk called Asser who when writing about Nottingham in 868 referred to the town as Tig Guocobauc, meaning house or place of caves in British.
  • Nottingham has more man-made caves than anywhere else in Britain.
  • The exposed cliff of the sandstone outcrop made this an obvious place for the early citizens of Nottingham to make their home. The occupants of these cave houses were generally poor and the caves were known as pauper holes.
  • Each cave is unique and created for a specific purpose; some even have elaborate carvings, pillars and staircases.
  • The softness of Nottingham’s sandstone makes it easy to excavate with hand tools, and the structural stability means that excavated caves are safe to use, even with buildings above them.
  • Throughout the medieval period Nottingham continued to grow and prosper becoming a center for trades such as wool manufacture, tanning, malting, alabaster carving and pottery production.  A number of these activities were undertaken in Nottingham’s caves.
  • Sandstone caves maintain a constant temperature of around 14 degrees Celsius/ 57.2 Fahrenheit and therefore made excellent cellars for the storage of ale.
  • At the start of the Second World War new caves were excavated and old ones reused to act as Air Raid shelters.

Believe it or not, few people in Nottingham are aware of this labyrinth, and fewer still have visited them. Unfortunately, in these modern times, a significant number of caves has been filled in with cement or bricked up, with others disappearing through natural collapse. There’s a special project underway called the Nottingham Caves Survey which hopes to survey and document all the caves under Nottingham, and bring awareness to this unique historical resource. I invite you to find out more about the caves HERE.

The Future of St Neots – A Collaborative Story

Thank you to everyone who participated in the creation of a collaborative story at the Future Takeover event at the Art and Soul cafe, St Neots, yesterday. The story took exciting turns from parking to pubs, and finally into the future:

The Future of St Neots

It was an exciting day for the people of St Neots.

I found a car parking space. £3 for 24 hours . . . I could be here for a while.

I looked around me, taking in the hustle and bustle of the busy people in the car park. Where is he going? What is he doing?

I made my way to Art and Soul. Would I get some cake and coffee . . . or maybe something more.

Whilst at the cafe, I checked my mobile phone. I had received a mysterious text message inviting me to meet someone at the Pig and Falcon.

Should I go? Was it a wrong number? I decided to take a risk and check it out.

I was within a few yards of the pub when my nerves got the better of me. What am I doing? What would my mum say?

Unfortunately for me my mum is quite a wild child so asking myself this question often leads me towards adventure not away from it! So, I looked around me and stepped towards the door to the pub. I pushed it tentatively and peered inside.

I was completely shocked by what I saw.

Standing at the bar, holding a glass of white wine was a lady dressed as a Jedi or maybe she was, in fact, a Jedi. She spotted me and said, “Fancy going on a bit of a journey? I’m going to show you what St Neots looks like in the future.”

Before I knew it I was off to Priory Park, which was now a Wookie settlement. I was greeted by a creature who claimed to be Chewbacca’s brother.

He said, “St Neots is far more interesting than the Millennium Falcon. This is really what the future will look like.”

And then he took me on a tour of St Neots, through the parks and along the river and into some pubs. We ended up at the Market Square where hundreds of people gathered and held aloft their light sabres to mark the anniversary of the day the Jedi lady came to town.

While your home fills up with the tasty aromas of an earlier time, you can indulgently curl up with a good book. May I suggest Traveler’s Zone?

Chris Pavesic continues the amazing story of Cami Malifux with Book 2 of the Revelation Chronicles.

Escape from a world of darkness into a magical realm of limitless adventure.

About the Book:

In Starter Zone, Cami kept herself and her younger sister Alby alive in a post-apocalyptic world, facing starvation, violence, and death on a daily basis. Caught by the military and forcefully inscribed, Cami manages to scam the system and they enter the Realms, a Virtual Reality world, as privileged Players rather than slaves. They experience a world of safety, plenty, and magical adventure. Indeed, magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as Cami continues her epic quest to navigate the Realms and build a better life for her family. But an intrusion from her old life threatens everything she has gained and imperils the entire virtual world.

Read an Excerpt:

I was born into a world where silicone still ruled. Where the products of the earth outshone those of the sea. Integrated circuits ran all electronic equipment and scientists strove to make the conducting lines smaller and smaller. Silicon Valley tried, and failed, to make chips fast enough to upload human consciousness.

The Revelation came a few years later from the hydrologists. They designed a system that did not use silicone, but instead worked with water molecules. The hydrologists managed to imprint the consciousness of a human mind on a single drop of water.

The water was to be kept in self-contained, sealed aquariums—pure, undiluted, eternal—where virtual realities were constructed to meet every need and desire. All of human knowledge encoded and stored in literal pools of data and integrated with the drops of human consciousness. It was, the hydrologists claimed, utopia achieved.

The obscenely rich were the hydrologist’s first clients, many taken near the end of their lives. The procedure did not always work, but there were enough successes to spur people’s interest. People suffering from terminal illnesses volunteered to be inscribed, and the hydrologists worked and refined their process. Private companies formed and competition forced price wars. Hundreds of customers grew to thousands, and then to millions. There were landmark court cases arguing whether or not health insurance should cover the cost of the inscription–whether or not this was a medical procedure designed to save lives or a form of physician assisted suicide. The law struggled to decide if life ended when the body was drained to a dry, leathery husk, or if life continued inside those glowing, sealed aquariums.

I was thirteen when the governments seized control of the laboratories, first in the Eastern European countries. Then the labs of Europe and the Middle East were swallowed up. Terrorist attacks soon followed and destroyed most of the civilized world over the next three years. The United States, Canada, and Greece, those bastions of democracy, did not fall until the very end. Of course, by then no one cared whether or not the government or the private companies ran the uploading programs. Many of the aquariums ruptured in the strife and the droplets, imbued with human consciousness, re-entered the water cycle of the planet.

The destruction of the aquariums led to a moment of serendipity. Once the hydrologists learned that the human minds survived outside of the aquariums, they designed a world-wide system of interlocking realms to host the inscribed human minds. Right now the realms exist in Challenger Deep, the deepest known point in the Earth’s seabed hydrosphere, but the hydrologists have plans to expand their reach into the rest of the world. Soon, the only life left on the planet will exist in the virtual world.

Time to play the game.

Praise for the Revelation Chronicles:
“She entered the game and I was hooked. I don’t even
play that kind of computer game, but the story was as addicting as I imagine a
real MMORPG to be. Each level up, each new character, each new threat drew me
in. I wish I could read the next book already!” –Kata, NetGalley Reviewer
“I love the dystopian genre, and a lot of the problem I
run into is a lot of them are boring and follow the same storyline. This one is
so different it’s amazing. I cannot recommend this enough. It’s sci-fi, it’s
dystopian, and it fresh. A definite must read that I plan on reading
again!” –Liliyana S., NetGalley Reviewer
“Both sisters are strong female characters who are good role
models for young girls.  This story is
filled with suspense and adventure with a taste of the gaming world.  It is the first LITRPG book that I have read
and I really enjoyed it.” –Teresa O, Educator
“This book was amazing! The story line, along with the
development of the characters was phenomenal. This book is very well paced, and
easy to follow. Seeing the story play out for the characters, along with the
lessons you gain from reading this book, makes it one of my new favorites. For,
this book is more than just another dystopia novel. It’s basis is on family
love, and what you’d do to keep them safe. It’s a young adult novel, yet is
appropriate for anyone above the age of 10. I would highly suggest reading this
book ASAP. You won’t regret it!”–Almaz D, Reviewer
