April 2020: Home Together
We are healthy, sheltering in place, and observing all COVID-19 precautions when we must go out. Frank is not teaching students in person or holding choral rehearsals, but he is hard at work for his devoted students by sending out music and practice tracks and keeping in touch by phone and email. Zelda is still publishing books and updating websites (this one always the last, naturally) with breaks for collage and craft projects.
April 2020: Zelda's Trilogy Comes Full Circle
The Time Dancer 2nd Printing
What if there was a world of Magic just the other side of our dreams? When George Drumm falls in love with the Gypsy Esmarelda, he must learn the secrets of the Spiral Map of Time, or lose her to the future. But the Gypsy is on her own quest. The two leapfrog across the Spiral in search of lost cats, missing satchels and each other, and in the process share glimpses of their magical universe with residents of the dusty town of Caliente.
The Two Magicians, sequel to TheTime Dancer, has reached us at last...
On this side of the Spiral Map of Time it has taken 26 years for the story of Esmarelda and George Drumm to resume. How long has it taken on the magical other side? Hard to say, and The Two Magicians only adds to the mystery of The Time Dancer's origins. Weaving throughout, our narrator attempts to solve the mystery of that "purple-bound wonder" and discover the identity of the author behind "that preposterous nom de plume." Reviews from across the Spiral.
The Ten Years completes the Spiral Map of Time Trilogy
"...because once there is a Two, there must be a Three. Obviously." The Two Magicians ploy worked! The mysterious author of The Time Dancer has come forward with the final episode in the series. How will Time settle up with the magical dancer Esmarelda and her intrepid lover George Drumm?
And Another Ten Years... since Zelda took over Amador Publishers
Here are two books by other authors which I recently re-issued.
Unbroken Spirit, My Life Before and After Quadriplegia by Gilbert John
The Carlos Chadwick Mystery, A Novel of College Life and Political Terror by Gene H. Bell-Villada
It is so fitting that these are the two projects that mark my anniversary of taking the helm at Amador. Entirely separately from each other, these two authors have kept me going through a tough period for our press and the industry in general. Their friendship and faith in me, and the significance of their work which I have the privilege of keeping in print, has kept me on track and helps make my efforts rewarding.
