Doyle Dalton's Destiny
So here we are at the beginning of a blank diary....
Oh, wait, that's how Jamie began her series. But here we are. We just completed a successful local book promotion in Halifax, and now it's time to extend book purchases to anyone anywhere. This blog is partly a shameless flogging of books. After all, this is a book website. This blog also is a bit of a map to tell you where we're going for the year with MORE books. After all, as I said, this is a book website.
Destiny of the Departed is available on Amazon in all countries. Here are some helpful links to help you find it:
It remains available through my preferred vendors, Dartmouth Book Exchange and Cape and Cowl Comics and Collectibles. Books purchased locally through them or directly from me can be autographed as you wish. We do ship, but there would be a fee to cover postage. See my pinned post for sale details. Sale prices are only available through these channels and now through Amazon.
So, where are we going? Doyle Dalton's Diary, the next and eighth Jamie Poole is now available for preorder! I couldn't be more excited. Through the series so far it is known that he wrote one diary. Possibly two. It is also known that he finished the diary in a strange language that looks like Arabic but can't be read like Arabic or any known dialect living or dead. This has stumped expert translators such as Dr. Mary Sutherland, who has been trying to translate the diary since Jamie handed it to her. She's an expert, right?
What we know about Doyle Dalton is he fought in World War I. That picture above? The men in front of the Sphinx are ANZAC soldiers who fought in and around Egypt during the war. This would have been where Doyle Dalton fought--or made a fortune stealing or acquiring dubious objects for his cabinet of curiosities. This we already know from his descendent, Peter Dalton, who "coincidentally" happens to be Jamie's friend. (Nothing happens by accident, as Jamie will be quick to state.) Somewhere in this time it is assumed that Dalton acquired the alabaster of Eliyana, but Dalton's own words are peppered heavily with lies, deceit, and every attempt at honesty.
Wherein lies the truth then? Jamie translates the diary! How? Re-read Time by Einstein to find out. The fact that she can means that we now must ask how truthful Dalton will be while speaking in an unknown language. We'll circle back to this further as we begin discussing this book and all the surprises hiding in it. I'm most pleased with its story and how Doyle Dalton was able to tell his story. What you think you know of Dalton, I assure you that you are mistaken. Preorder the book and learn the truth.
Here are some helpful links to get you started. Again, the book is available exclusively from Amazon at this time.
Doyle Dalton's Diary will be available October 31, Halloween, as that is a central date in Jamie Poole lore.
