I think the title pretty much says it all, doesn't it? Both Lyon's Legacy and Twinned Universes are 50% off this week at Smashwords as part of their Read an EBook Week. I don't intend to put them on sale at Amazon until I publish another work in the series, so this is a good time to grab them. You can find Lyon's Legacy here and Twinned Universes here. Use code REW50 for both. Why should you read them? Because they're both well-written, professionally edited, and just darn good reading. But don't take my very biased word for it; go download the samples and read them youself.
Sometimes being a geneticist isn’t enough to understand your family....
Lyon is the great-granddaughter of the legendary TwenCen musician Sean
Lyon. Joanna may have inherited some of her ancestor's musical talent,
but her parents' bitter divorce and her Uncle Jack's attempts to remake
her into another Sean have left her hostile toward her family and music.
Her passion is for science, but since she has no access to the family
funds, she struggles to earn enough credits for graduate school. Then
her uncle sets up a business deal with her employer to make Joanna go on
a mission for him: travel via the spaceship Sagan to an alternate
TwenCen universe where Sean is still alive. Joanna must collect a DNA
sample from Sean so her uncle can create a clone of him. She refuses at
first, but finally agrees to go. Secretly, however, Joanna believes her
uncle will exploit the clone, and she plans to sabotage the project to
stop him. But when she falls in love with one of the scientists in the
Sagan's genetics lab, clashes with other time travelers who fear she'll
change how history develops on the alternative TwenCen Earth, and
receives devastating personal news, Joanna will find herself pushed to
her limit even before she comes face-to-face with her hated ancestor.
Their encounter will leave her changed forever. Will she still be able
to thwart her uncle's plan, and what will she have to sacrifice to do
the aftermath of a family tragedy on 21st century Earth, Paul discovers
he’s the clone of Sean Lyon, his great-great-grandfather and a famous
TwenCen musician. Suspecting his mother’s death was no accident, Paul
comes up with a plan to trick the answers out of the great-uncle who had
him cloned. But in order to make his plan work, Paul needs help from
Sean himself—and Sean’s time is running out in the TwenCen universe next
door. Although Paul’s family lives on the spaceship that travels
between the universes, he’s never been allowed on TwenCen Earth. Now,
with the help of his friends, his disguise-creating holoprojectors, and a
quantum quirk, Paul must make his way to Sean while evading other time
travelers who fear he’ll change the history of the TwenCen universe. If
Paul is to achieve justice, he must not only risk his own life, but the
wormhole connecting the universes. “To be or not to be” was a simple
question in comparison....
Enjoy the rest of the week!
