Timefall, the new omnibus combined version of Collapse of the Veil and Crossings, has been bumped up to a September 1 release by new (to me) publisher, Five Rivers Publishing. The two original YA fantasy novels were “orphaned” when the initial publisher changed hands and all young adult novels were jettisoned. This publication date came as a surprise to me, for my contract indicated a December 1 release.
I greatly appreciate the interest of Lorina Stephens of Five Rivers in taking on these two books, which developed slowly over a 25+ year span after the initial riveting idea hit in 1984. I also really appreciate the wonderful editing of Dr. Robert Runte, who helped make this new, combined edition even stronger than the original works.

Blurbs on the two original novels:
Collapse of the Veil: “A tenderly urgent journey through time, love, apocalypse, and unexpected hope. Readers will emerge with new insights for our world’s problems and possibilities.” Sharon Plumb, author of Draco’s Child.
Crossings: “One world, two very different times, three misfit teens and a baby. Alison Lohans’ spare and certain prose transports us into their journey, pitting love and hope against the coming apocalypse.” Marie Powell, author of Hawk.
