I have been meaning to post this for a while. Kirkus reviewed my novel The Necklace of Time a few months ago. They say some good things about it. Complete Review follows:

An author travels to another dimension to solve a mystery that has plagued him all his life in this sequel.
     Simon Royale, a bestselling writer of horror novels, lives in a  copy of the world that only contains North America—or, North America as  it was on Halloween 2014. His writing is fueled, in part, by the  mysterious disappearance of his sister, Cynthia, when he was 7 years  old. The guilt he feels over the event is so intense that he is willing  to take advantage of the opportunity to investigate a different copy of  North America: one made in 1953. The two worlds have continued to  develop along different paths, and US-53 (as it’s called) has its own  Simon Royale—though he’s a failed, unpublished writer instead of a  successful one. What’s more, the sister of US-53 Simon never disappeared.
