Take a step on the Eternal Road!
Thank you so much for having me on your blog, Charles, and thank you for helping me launch this book. I know you are busy preparing a launch of your own, so I am grateful to be here. Speaking of the book, let me describe it. Eternal Road is the story of two people finding their way through the selection process leading to the place where one will spend eternity. Yes, it is true. They both have passed away. James Wainwright just died in an auto accident. Samantha Tourneau died seventeen years before. Sam is James’s guide to help him decide where to spend eternity. This is not your usual thriller or paranormal romance. It is a piece of fiction that is a combination of inspiration, adventure, time travel, sci-fi, a touch of erotica, and a dash of spiritual. In short, it is a lot of things, but hopefully, a story that will make you happy to have read it.
It is now available on Amazon in paper and Kindle. The Kindle edition is introductory priced at 99¢ until October 15th

Trying to be careful, they inadvertently come to the attention of Lucifer, who would love to have their souls as his subjects. They also find a threat to human survival and desperately need to put in place the fix necessary to save humankind.
The question becomes, will James find his eternal home in grace or lose the battle with Satan for his immortal soul and the future of human life with it? If you like time-travel, adventure, mystery, justice, and the supernatural, this story is for you.
Through the gloom, he makes out a long bar on the other side of the room. When his eyes become accustomed to the low light level, he notices lamps hanging from the ceiling, which give off a smell that he doesn’t recognize. One or two near the bar are lit, and a thin layer of smoke hovers near the ceiling.
“Over here,” Sam calls. She stands at the bar with one foot up on a brass rail. The bartender has a wrinkled forehead and doesn’t look pleased, so James decides he better get over there and clear up any misunderstanding.
“Everything okay?” James looks first to the bartender and then to Sam.
“I was just telling the lady that women aren’t allowed at the bar. Just not ladylike, and the boss doesn’t want any trouble with the womenfolk in town.”
Though taken aback, James manages to give Sam a look that broadcasts, ‘behave yourself.’ To the bartender, he says, “Well, sir, I guess we better move to a table, then. Will that be okay?”
The bartender smiles in relief. “Yes, it will. I’ll serve you from there.”
“It’s not okay with me.” Clearly, Sam has her hackles up.
James takes her by the arm and half drags her over to a table. He plops her down and pulls up a chair for himself. Other people in the bar stare open-mouthed at the two of them.
“Sam, for heaven’s sake. Quit grumping about the bartender and take a look around.”
“What am I looking for?”
“These people appear as though they’re from the 1800s. Look how they’re dressed. There’s not a zipper in the place. All buttons and suspenders.”
Sam glances around the room. “I see what you mean. The women look like Miss Kitty from the show Gunsmoke.” Sam pauses. “Oh, no.”
