In Lady Grace, a few survivors of the nuclear holocaust make their way back to Piermont Manor, Jeremy Edgarton’s ancestral estate. The radiation is gone and it’s finally safe to go home. 

What awaits them makes their worst dreams look like Bollywood frolics.

Right away, they find out that evolution can work for evil as well as good. Going home requires a battle more deadly than any they’ve fought. 

The returning characters appear from everywhere, in ways you’d never believe.

Some of them you’ve met before; some are new to Tales from Earth’s End. 

Bud Creeman and Wesley Silverhorse, characters from earlier novel, Numenon: A Tale of Mysticism & Money, drop in from the year 2015, thousands of years before the time of Lady Grace. Bud and Wes provide needed Native American skills and spiritual power.

Shining through it all is Lady Grace a phoenix rising from the devastation of her civilization, unrecognizable as the person she once was.

It was a new world, 
but was it one that permitted love?

REVIEWS:
“FIVE STARS! A MODERN SCI-FI MASTERPIECE!
 Lady Grace was first-rate science fiction and one of the most absorbing page-turners of that genre that I’ve read in years. Author Sandy Nathan exhibits the imagination of Ray Bradbury combined with the whimsicalness of Douglas Adams. That’s high praise, but it’s warranted. The story includes so much action; tense, suspenseful drama; and two charming love stories that it’s irresistible.”

The sequels to The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy are on the way! If you haven’t discovered The Tales from Earth’s End Series, you have a treat in store.

The Tales from Earth’s End Series introduces characters pushed to their greatest extremity––to the end of the planet and their own lives. The people of Earth’s End must cope with nuclear holocaust, survive on a planet reduced to prehistoric standards, and adjust to life in an underground tomb––the bomb shelter on the Piermont estate. And you were thinking life is rough!
The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy shows a group of people attempting to escape a nuclear holocaust in a ruined future world. It’s part teen romance and part coming of age story, with overtones of 1984. It’s won two national awards in visionary fiction, another in new age fiction & still another in fantasy/sci-fi.

The Angel’s first sequel, Lady Grace, brings some of The Angel’s characters back together and puts them in another struggle for existence. This time, they’re fighting against the elements and a degenerate society which the nuclear war has spawned.

The second sequel, Sam & Emily, is a love story involving two characters from The Angel. It sizzles.

The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy has been entered in three contests. It’s won four awards in national competition:
* 2011 IPPY (Independent Press) Awards Gold Medal in Visionary Fiction: The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy The oldest and largest contest for independent presses. Almost 4,000 books were entered in the IPPYs this year.

* 2011 National Indie Excellence Award Winner in Visionary Fiction: The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy The Indie Excellence Award looks for a book’s overall excellence. Content, cover design, interior and exterior, and everything that goes into the production of a book are evaluated.

* Best Books of 2001 sponsored by USA Book News: The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy is an AWARD WINNER in the “Fiction: New Age” category.

* Best Books of 2001 sponsored by USA Book News: The Angel is also a FINALIST in the “Fiction: Fantasy/Sci-Fi” category.

It’s wowed the critics and reviewers. If you like Fantasy, Sci-fi, Visionary Fiction or just a good, engaging read, check out The Angel.

The romance industry (major publishers) has rules about romances. They have to go like this: Boy meets girl. (Right away, you see the limitations of the form.) They fall in love, with lots of explicit sex. More than lots. A terrible barrier arises that separates them: She discovers he’s married & has 6 kids. He discovers she’s got hoof & mouth disease. They part, but struggle to overcome the Awful Barrier. (No sex here.) Then an elephant falls out of the sky.

Many romance writers are REALLY CLEVER about getting their hero and heroine out of the pickle they’re in. There’s more explicit sex. (The romance genre does offer some really entertaining reading––hot, too––as well ask skilled writing. I’ve checked it out.) The industry has other rules. No one under 18 has sex, explicit or not. And the book has to end happily. That’s traditional, major publisher romance.

Which is why we have independent presses. My romance isn’t like that.
