People have been asking for an update on “Time Jam,” the follow-up to “Time Snap” and “Time Crunch.” It was scheduled for release this month (October, 2019), but even as I work on the final draft, I keep finding things I want to be “just a little bit better.” I was really happy with “Time Crunch,” and I want to be absolutely certain that “Time Jam” is just as fun. I’ll need just a little more time with it, but I hope to have it ready before Thanksgiving.
In the meantime, here’s a quick snippet to give you an idea what it’s all about:
CHASE TURNED, JOINING his teammates as they squeezed through the crowd toward the showers. He was almost to the locker room when a hand grabbed him by the arm and jerked him to the side.
He turned–surprised–to see Zach Wolff standing there with wide eyes.
“Chase!” Zach hissed through the noise of the boisterous crowd. “C’mere! We’ve gotta talk!”
“Give me a minute,” Chase said. “Coach wants to talk to the team, then I’ve gotta take a shower–”
“Chase, listen,” Zach insisted. “We’ve gotta chance to see The Asteroid!”
“An asteroid?” Chase glanced toward the showers before turning back to Zach. His friend was flushed with excitement, but not because of the ballgame. “So what?”
“Not ‘an’ asteroid!” Zach whispered, his voice urgent. “Thee Asteroid!”
A knot of rowdy kids collided with Chase, nearly knocking him over. He shot them an irritated glare before turning back to Zach.
“What are you talking about?” Chase asked impatiently, anxious to rejoin the team. “What asteroid?”
“The Asteroid,” Zach said for the third time. “We have a chance to see the Chicxulub Asteroid–the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs!”
WOW! I’m so excited about this book! It’s different in a lot of ways from anything I’ve done before, and I can’t wait to share. If you haven’t yet checked out “Time Snap” or “Time Crunch,” give them a look. And be watching for “Time Jam!”
