Dear Writer-Friends,

I've been self-publishing since 2011, and I've shared the knowledge I've gained in two books: the Indie Author Survival Guide, Second Edition, and For Love or Money. I'm not an indie rockstar or a breakout success: I'm one of thousands of solidly midlist indie authors making a living with their works. These books are my way of helping my fellow authors discover the freedom of indie publishing. Write on, writer-friends!

New Release: Synchronic - 13 Tales of Time Travel - Includes My New Story, CORRECTIONS

I am so excited to be in this Time Travel Anthology!
releases tomorrow 5/22
available for preorder at Amazon in ebook and print

It was an honor to be invited to an anthology with so much indie author talent! And working with editor David Gatewood was a delight. The result is a fantastic collection of bite-sized tales just right for intriguing lunch-time reading.

First, a bit about my story, written especially for this anthology...

Corrections (Susan Kaye Quinn)
Time traveling through murderers' minds to prevent the crimes that landed them on Death Row? This is what psychologist Ian Webb lives for. But his training with the Department of Corrections, along with fifteen successfully resolved cases, is of little help when the original timeline proves to be nothing like the court records show. The past can only be changed so much, and pushing it too far won't just fail to prevent a murder - it might erase his patient from the timeline altogether.

If you liked my Debt Collector series, Corrections has the same dark-and-gritty future-noir feel, as well as the same episodic storytelling structure. So don't be surprised if there are more Corrections stories to come!

Every story in Synchronic has a unique take on time travel, often heart-wrenching, always thought-provoking. My favorites were Ann Christy's Rock or Shell, a Twilight-Zone-esque tale about too much time travel, as well as Jason Gurley's The Dark Age, which just made me sob. (Jason also made our gorgeous cover.) Every story in this collection is top shelf (read all the synopses here), but don't take my word for it... 

Here's what the reviewers are saying...
"This collection... deserves a paperback on your bookshelf. The short story is not dead and this collection proves it."
"Synchronic helped me rediscover the joy of reading short stories."
"These are the sampler packs, the culinary tasters of the literary world... you're in for a wonderful surprise with Synchronic."
Synchronic launches tomorrow! (Order now or add to your Goodreads TBR).

So why am I telling you a day early? So you can time travel into the future and buy it? (NO! That's why we have preorders!)

Because we're having a PARTY!

Susan Kaye Quinn is the author of the bestselling Mindjack Trilogy, which is young adult science fiction. Third Daughter (The Dharian Affairs #1) which is her excuse to dress up in corsets and fight with swords. She also has a dark-and-gritty SF serial called The Debt Collector and a middle grade fantasy called Faery Swap. She apparently writes time-travel stories as well. It's possible she's easily distracted. She always has more speculative fiction fun in the works.
