 With the release of ORACLE only a week away, it seems like time to give folks a small taste of what to expect in this duology. Unlike most of my previous work, this story is told in multiple third-person points-of-view. There's no magic, but there is the magic of science and scientific theory, as well as some pretty nifty psi-abilities. Action, adventure, breaking-and-entering, sarcasm, and an...

“I told myself that was why, that I wasn’t bringing you back because it hurt too much to lose you. That a lifetime without free will wasn’t worth three more
days with you. That wasn’t good enough. I had to do it for the right reasons, you know. For them, not for us.”
Kelly Meding, Three Days to Dead

“Too bad you need both hands for crawling," I said. "We could use some sunshine in here."

"Next time, I'll be sure to ask the sprites for a flashlight."

"And a bottle of water. I think I've swallowed enough dust to shit a brick later.”
Kelly Meding, Three Days to Dead

“Six flights up I smelled it. Faint at first and then gradually stronger - the eye-watering stench of fermented sugar. I felt like I was walking into a distillery, and that clued me in as to who we were visiting. [...] I'm still waiting for some brave soul to start marketing Gremlin Piss Schnapps.”

Howard Loring Kelly:

Feedback on my newest Epic Fable, 'Piercing the Elastic Limit' has been nothing but good but also unexpectedly, it's being refered to as a Romance Novel, not my intention.

With so many Romamces under your belt, I wonder what you'd think & if I should push it in that vein.

I'd gladly send you a copy for free, book or ebook, to get your feedback.

I can be reached here or, for more anonymity, at my publishers website: www.precognitionpress.com

By the way, the main hero of both Epic Fables are very strong women.

Write what you know.

Many thanks.
