Official Apex Reviews Rating: 5 stars

Bestowed with the gift of “The Sight,” young Englishwoman Elizabeth is subsequently charged with completing a crucial task by the leaders of Earthzad, an advanced civilization in a dimension hidden from the people of Earth; however, she soon finds herself falling head over heels for Orion, her handsome taskmaster, which has the potential to complicate her mission...meanwhile, Orion is motivated solely by his overpowering affection for Jocasta, the beautiful, intelligent ruler of his home region on Earthzad; unbeknownst to Orion, even though Jacosta feels just as strongly for him, she harbors a deep secret that prevents her from returning his affections...caught up in a monumental struggle for the peace and stability of the galaxy, Elizabeth, Orion, and Jacosta ultimately find themselves trapped not only within the throes of battle – but also of unrequited passion...

Parallel Triangle is nothing if not imaginative. In gripping fashion, author Sandy Hyatt-James has crafted a winding tale of action, drama, and suspense, featuring vivid, unique characters and cleverly intersecting plotlines. More than just a tale of brooding romantic tension, Parallel Triangle invites readers to travel to the nether regions of their imagination, incorporating impressive elements of fantasy and Sci-Fi while simultaneously exploring the visceral depths of emotional turmoil. Equally riveting and eye-opening, Hyatt-James’ debut offering is the strong introduction of a promising new literary voice. A thoroughly entertaining read.

My First Draft Completed

What a great feeling it is to have finished the first draft of a novel. Now, some authors might argue that putting the initial stuff down is the best part, but for me it's what comes afterwards that's the best. Now I can wait a little while, go back to the beginning and really start to "write" my book. I've been tempted to go back and perfect this and that over the past six months: the time it's taken me to to the draft, but being further along as a writer now, I think this way's going to prove to be the best.

While I'm about it, I may as well mention that "Sabine Dolls", my first novel has now been accepted by "Bluewood Publishing." I'm so excited about this! It cancels out the disappointment that I felt with the Mystic Moon debacle. I have a good feeling about these people, who seem committed to turning out the best books possible.

I saw the cover art for the book last week. Wow, just seeing the first draft of that really brought it home to me that I'm about to be published - at long last!
