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.

Impatient But Happy

I love this time of the year; especially living in Bulgaria where a white Christmas is usually a given. And I like the fact that Bulgaria, although a Christian country, doesn't do commercialism like Western Europe or America. Some of this could be that people just don't have any money here. Paying out large sums in advertising, to try and trawl in vast revenue for goods, therefore, is a waste of money.

On the subject of money, I read that the Bankers of RBS have quit because the Chancellor of the Exchequer has scuppered their chance of paying themselves huge bonuses. Well, boo-hoo! Their greed and insensitivity to ordinary people in this era of dearth takes my breath away! Let them go I say, and good riddance. Let's hope that those who take their place will be more adept at the job, have more of a social conscience and be prepared to work for more realistic rewards!

About writing: I hoped that "Sabine Dolls would be out by Christmas, but this isn't to be. Hopefully, I can get down to the editing with Bluewood in the New Year and get it out by the end of January. Also, I'm almost at the final edit stage of my new novel: "Parallel Triangle" but I can't really push that until I've got the first book properly out and up for sale. Methinks that 2010 will be interesting!
