D. L. Jackson's Debut Novel Released Today!

***  OUT TODAY!  *** 

A frequent visitor to Spacefreighters Lounge, D. L. (Dawn) Jackson has a debut e-novel--a Futuristic Romance titled SLIPPING THE PAST--being released today by Liquid Silver Books!

SLIPPING THE  PAST is a soaring love story with some wicked twists and surprises. 

Here's the blurb from the Liquid Silver website:

Some love affairs last a lifetime, others never end.

Jocelyn Miller is a fugitive. She’s blind, homeless and was doomed to spiritual incarceration from the moment she drew her first breath. On the run since her eighteenth birthday, she’s somehow managed to stay one step ahead of the reapers. If she’s caught, she knows she’ll lose her soul, but what she doesn’t expect—is to lose her heart.

Innocent people don’t have warrants.

Or do they?

Gabriel Solaris is an enforcer, a genetically enhanced psychic often referred to as a reaper for his ability to take souls, and he’s charged with collecting Jocelyn’s. When he finds Jocelyn outside the store, he’s sure she’s up to something illegal. Proving it isn’t necessary, he already has a warrant. But the closer Gabriel gets to Jocelyn, the more he begins to question his duty. Her claims of innocence have a ring of truth he can’t deny.

I loved you once.

Gabriel loses control and kisses her. Instead of taking her soul, he gives her a week to prove her innocence for past-life crimes. Now it isn’t only Jocelyn’s soul at stake. If she can’t prove her innocence, Gabriel will go down with her.

Congratulations, Dawn!

  1. Whoo hooo!
    Thanks so much, Laurie.
    I'm so excited about this novel. Don't let the title fool you, this isn't a historical. Its a futuristic with past-life flashbacks and it borders sci-fi rom. It's got high-octane romance and lots of action, including a free fall from a skyscraper.

  2. Yippe, congratulations, Dawn. The start of a hugely successful writing career, I'm sure. Well done.

  3. Yup, very exciting time for you Dawn. Enjoy!

    I hope to have a review up very soon.

  4. Congratulations, Dawn! Can't wait to read it!

  5. I can't express how much I love the cover. It fits the story better than anything I could have imagined. Everyone at Liquid Silver has been great,very professional and they were a joy to work with.
    This story has been an interesting journey and my IPs (indispensable peers) know exactly what I mean. They spent hours helping me to tweak this and listened to my rants as I worked through the kinks. Thank you Barbara, Arlene and Laurie for helping me to bring this story to life. You're the Best!

  6. I wish not concur on it. I regard as nice post. Specially the appellation attracted me to read the whole story.

  7. Congratulations, Dawn!!! Many happy sales!

  8. Thanks, Heather. And anon, I'm glad you like the title.


  9. Finally, finally managed to buy it now we're home and it's safe in my 'Dawn' file!! I want to add some more titles - get a move on!

  10. *ducks cracking whip*
    Edits are coming along on the next, but it's taking me some serious time as the details are very intricate and it's like balancing a house of cards. As soon as I get through this one, I'll send another. I learned my lesson about two at once. *licks wounds*
