It’s Snowing!

Uncategorized No Comments »

I can’t believe it-of course, I’m in Ohio and the weather is just one of the things we sort of haphazardly wander through; its as if Mother nature comes to the border and says, let’s just screw with all these folks heads for awhile. So yesterday it was 60, alternating between thunderstorms, light rain, mist and overcast; and last night it rained, got windy and today its 25′, snowing and once again winter. My poor pussywillow bush out back was blooming, covered in furry little buds, and today it’s covered in a thin layer of snow/ice.

However, the snow keeps me from spending too much time outdoors and lets me catch up on my correspondence with you, my fans and readers, so it’s a good thing. We all got through the rush of holidays well, I am 2/3 of the way through my next and final book of the Oberllyn Generations Series. There are nine books in all and they’ve done well for us here. I hope you’ve taken advantage of the different sales and enjoyed reading them. The latest one, number 8, or book two of the last trilogy, is called The Importance of Family Ties.

The back cover gives this explanation: “Traveler is back with all the political intrigue, hard science fiction and adventure her fans have come to expect from her tales.  In book 8 of the Future  Generations of the Oberllyn Family Chronicles , Noel, Violet, Kai, Zyanya, Jasmine, Scott, Gabriel, Catriona and their families chase through  the world, pitting their family, resources, intellect and espionage network against the Brotherhood;.  They  erect protective domes over all their safe houses and laboratories as they are labeled traitors and enemies of humanity.  The military is sent to take them into custody  all over the world. As the planet’s plant life dies from the sickened water;  the mutations spread throughout the animal kingdom.  The Oberllyn’s are made the scapegoats for all the world’s problems.  When Micah and Alexander are kidnapped, Noel has to call in help from all the worldwide family to bring them home .     As the family worldwide retreat to the domes, they wonder  if they will  hold through military bombardment?  Will the domes hold? Will the earth survive  or has  the destruction of the environment and the population plummet gone too far to recover?  Will only the people of the domes make it to the next millennium?” It’s a real page turner and I hope you enjoy it.

 

It’s available from Amazon as both paperback and ebook.

Finally, the middle of the past generations is up on Amazon: the e book is ready, the paperback will be out by Friday-and it’s a real romp through the generations between the Western migration and the present.

The middle generations of the Oberllyn’s carry on the legacy of their father Noah by setting up a network of scientists, spies and informants all over the globe.  This book spans the generations from 1910 to 2010; a time of change and growth.  The family tries to stay out of the feud between Edison and Tesla while beginning to investigate an elusive enemy network that grows into an worldwide web that will plague them for generations.  They survive Two World Wars, The Korean Conflict, Vietnam War and the Gulf Wars  in spite of attacks on them personally from the enemy and from their own government.  Will the legacy of the Lenape negotiators carry the family through discrimination, hatred and treason?  Will there be another seven generations of the people to carry on or will they follow their ancestors into oblivion?

 

You meet the newest genius in this book, and his sister, Micah and Serena, who are much involved in the present trilogy.  Right now, you can order them through Amazon, or pm me on my FB page, travelerpelton, for an autographed copy.  And when you read it, don’t forget to leave us a review on Amazon!  Thanks so much.

Everyone is expecting the Book signing to go very well at Colonial Kidshelf, leastwise the folks who have contacted us for more information. T Bear, Fawn and myself will be signing our new books September 21st from 1 to 4 at 855 Coshocton road, Mt Vernon OH. Everyone within is cordially invited to come and enjoy the giveaways, meeting us, the authors, and finding out what the Oberllyn’s have gotten themselves into this time…It’s going to be well worth your while to come out, we’ll be right next to Kroger’s in the bookstore and I can’t wait to meet some of you who have been FBing us.     This is the second book of Tbears series on the future of earth-after we blast ourselves back into medieval times and everything techie is now considered a form of magic, the clan and serf system is set up again with kings and dragons and wizards-it is tons of fun.  The first was called Clan Falconer’s war.  The new one is called Rise of the Rebellion.

Fawn has written a non fiction book on sewing on a budget-part of her new series Living Frugally and well…and I continue the Sage of the Oberllyn family-go to our bookpage to find out more about the new books.  And if you happen to be near Mt Vernon, OH on September 21st in the afternoon, stop by and greet us!  It’s going to be a blast!  I’m going to have hourly drawings and gifts to share.  Might even have some refreshments if I can keep T Bear out of the cookies long enough.  That boy can smell homemade cookies a mile away before I even get them out of the oven!

traveling again, looking for good ideas…

“Just finished. Holy crow it’s amazing. I need to get the next one and read it. Total ♡. I’ll get the review posted after some sleep. Thank you so much, I sincerely enjoyed the Oberllyns!” Katie Stone on Goodreads.

“I enjoyed this book. It is a suspenseful adventure of one loving, closely-knit, gifted family in a world gone mad due to biological weapons and an emerging doomsday cult that has influence in the upper reaches of the government and the military.” Fawn Spencer

The paperbook is live now: Kindle has preorder until July 31st; then can be ordered or downloaded to your kindle unlimited account.  I am excited to hear what folks say about this book.  Be sure to put a review on Amazon and here when you’ve read it-I’d love to know what other folks think-so far, not had anyone who didn’t like it.  Thanks to all my beta readers and fans for your support!

 

Newest Book in the Series is out in three days!

Uncategorized No Comments »

Rebooting the Oberllyn’s   Is going to be released on Amazon Monday June 25, 2018.  The reviewers have been having a grand time with the advance copies, and you are going to love it!  I will be setting up a special price for the first week to let my faithful readers get it first.  If you want an autographed copy, you can contact me at the website and we can get one sent out to you, signed as you wish.  I’ve been asked some questions and need to get out group questions since so many are asking basically the same ones…

Big question: I thought the trilogy was done?  The trilogy is a part of a three trilogy series: covering the past, present and future Oberllyn family.  The Past books started with the Oberllyn’s Overland-the era of the civil war and expansion into the west(as historically accurate as I can get with a fictional family!), followed by It Only Takes a Spark-coming out in July-the period of 1900 to WWII, and then This book is the third in the Past Generations.  The Infant Conspiracy, Kai Dante’s Stratagem and The Obligation of Being Oberllyn are the present trilogy; and the Future  set, which I am researching and writing now, takes the family into inner and outer space…which is, as we all know, the new frontier for a family of spies…I cover seven generations, which,being a N-D-N is very appropriate.

So what is this book about?  Well, I am glad you asked!

The Oberllyn’s in the year 2018 are a shadow family. Noel , Violet and their  children are close knit in more ways than one; traditionally native, brilliant, with military and scientific  backgrounds,  they all work together in the family firm. The firm, a fourth generation independent underground spy network, works  directly  for the President and other U.S. allies to stop the spread of terrorism.  In theory, Kai, Gabriel and Jasmine are supposed to take over the firm; Noel and Violet are supposed to retire as soon as the boys finish their present military service.  Kai and Gabriel had gone into the military undercover as recruits, only to have the government they  all thought  they were working for put them in situations to deliberately   attempt to kill them .  While her brothers are under fire, Jasmine is in university finishing her degree in forensic psychiatry, and while studying, finds a husband as well.  Lilianna has gone off on her own; Micah, an eight year old autistic savant, is learning to cope with his social anxiety while Serena just wants to find a horse to ride.  In the meantime, a hidden figure sets loose a savage virus that has a 100% kill rate, it has gone global, and the Oberllyn’s need to kill it before it kills them and everyone else.  And you thought retirement planning was just a matter of money…

 

I can’t wait to read your reviews on this one!  And if you haven’t left a review on Amazon for the other books you have read-no time like the present!  God bless.

 

Spring into our New offer!

Uncategorized No Comments »

 Here’s the line up!  This is our new Aussie puppy-his name is Sheriff and he’s a dear little fellow, loves to chase feet.  Next  is the latest litter of Siamese kittens, born in the bottom of Tristain’s closet last week, six of them, and just as talkative as their mother Duchess.  And below here is the honeysuckle bush in my front yard, where I saw the first hummingbird of the season this morning…Spring is marvelous on the farm: and it’s inspiring and I have some grand news.

   For a very limited time, I will be offering a free download of the first chapters of the our latest book, The Oberllyn’s Overland: it shows the beginnings of the Oberllyn’s in America and how they became a generational family of undercover agents and scientists.  We will shortly be publishing-as in the first part of June, the newly revamped Kai Dante’s Stratagem-I just got the cover back and I do like it: 

and of course, the prequel before Infant Conspiracy that helps explain how all the mess  started in the world, the die-off, the Retreat Center-and why the Oberllyn’s really, really don’t like the government….the editor is nearly done, as soon as it is back, it’s going to publication and we will be offering a special on that as well…but for now, let’s get the downloads going!  Can’t wait to have your comments on the story!

It’s Spring; Kittens and books are in great supply!

Uncategorized No Comments »

As you can see, from kittens-8 of them, sleeping with their two mom’s who chose to give birth together in the barn, to new grandkids, to baby chicks to flowers blooming  and a new edition of our book, the farm is bustling this sort of spring. I say sort of because this is Ohio and this week alone, we had 5 inches of snow Monday, 70 degrees Tuesday with heavy rain, 30 degrees Wednesday and overcast, rain, wind and hail Thursday..and today is Friday, windy, 50 degrees and the sun is shining-so go figure!

Now I wanted to tell you about the revisions made, for those who have asked: I totally redid the cover, had a new editor work some magic to correct any English teacher needs new glasses type errors, smoothed the plot, added some  things to better make it flow with the new books I am adding to the series: incidentally, hoping for a release of the newest book shortly and I need beta readers-if you are interested, message me-send either pm me on FB (Traveler Pelton) or leave a comment below I can reply to so I can set you up for free with the latest in exchange for an honest opinion…

In the meantime, I am learning the ways of putting ads on FB and Amazon, so you might see one of them…and if you do, let me know and I shall send you a free download….

And finally, I hope the weather calms soon because this person is really ready for gardening.  When I have my hands out there in the soil, planting things, I swirl plots and characters in my mind and the writing goes faster that night…

And just to let you know, I will be a guest on the podcast Off the Chain with Yvonne Manson in June and looking forward to talking to you-I’m excited.  It’s a great program-hope you can give it a listen-

Also, will be doing a book signing in April-more info later, here in Mt. Vernon at Colonial Books/Kidshelf in Mt. Vernon-so spring is incredibly busy.

God bless, and drop me a line or a comment, go to Amazon and read the books(I have them on KU now) buy yourselves a copy-in fact, if you want a copy autographed, you can buy it through paypal form me and I shall autograph it and send it out to you myself-see the books page!

The New Improved, Revised Infant Conspiracy!

Uncategorized 1 Comment »

Our newest book, The Infant Conspiracy, is book one of the Trilogy.  It’s an adventuresome page turner, in which we meet Noel and Violet Oberllyn, who had  spent their adult careers working in special ops. After forty years of it, all they wanted was a peaceful retirement in the country.  Just as it seemed that dream might happen, a planned series of events forced their over achieving adult children to return – all  of them with spouses in tow. Kai a geneticist, with Zyanya his wife, Gabriel a bomb expert with their grandson little Gabe, Jasmine, a forensic psychiatrist married to Scott, a CPA, join their little sibs, Micah, an autistic savant and Serena, an artist, in uncovering a conspirators whose main goal is to take the earth’s population down from 7 billion to 500 million within the next 10 years. Having infiltrated the world’s governments and having released an airborne anti-fertility virus that rapidly covered the planet, they succeed in forcing a zero fertility rate. Meanwhile, the economy of the U.S. tanked, the government sells all citizens who have debt into slavery within a system so harsh that civil disorder breaks out. Serenity Retreat Center is forced to become a slave labor camp and the Oberllyn’s are forced back into special service to save the Center, their tribe, the United States and humanity from destruction. This was not going to be a quiet retirement…and right now, if you want a free prepublication copy and will agree to write an Amazon review or a review on this website, I will send you an ebook download of the book for free-just drop me a line and let me know where to send it. In your message, you need to give me your name, email where you want it sent and if you want to send the offer to any friends, their info (After you have confirmed they want a copy of their own) as well. It’s going to market as a 3.99 ebook and a 13.99 printed copy-and now is your chance to read it before I officially launch it.  So get your copy today!
