The Beyond Time Trilogy

Beyond Time TrilogyAvailable now at lulu.com, Amazon, and Barnes And Noble sites is THE BEYOND TIME TRILOGY.  This collection includes 3 novels (including the 2019 award winning THE THIRST OF CAIN).  There are also 3 short stories and bonus material never before released.  It retails for $27.99 plus S&H, but you can of course get each individual book via digital format as well.  Here’s the description:

A COURSE FOR HUMANITY introduces Francis Murphy, a reluctant anti-hero who is more than your typical human convict. A group called, Continuum, must turn to him for help when a rogue agent travels into the past to alter history. If Murphy and Continuum can’t work together, the very fate of the future and all reality may be doomed.
THE THIRST OF CAIN sees Murphy journey throughout history from the present to the dawn of humanity to rid himself of a curse. That curse is the mark that Cain received after murdering his brother Abel. It’s a curse that was destined to plague the world. In order to find a cure, Murphy must make the ultimate sacrifice. The result of that sacrifice will change everything we know, but will it be for the better or something far worse?
CONSUMED BY WAR follows a pair of immortals throughout the course of history to modern day. They’ve manipulated major events in our past, but one of their goals is to place his own judgement upon the world. The other knows that it will cost humanity too much, and must find a way to stop the enemy before it’s too late. Ancient artifacts of legend are the key to each of their goals. Who will aqcuire them first?
Also included in this trilogy are three short stories that take the reader beyond time: THE LOST HOUR, THE LOST DAY, and THE LOST YEAR.

Day 14: THE LOST YEAR

Lost YearIMG_E2597[1]Day 14 of #scrypthalloween shows a preview of my upcoming spinoff THE LOST YEAR. Some facts: 1) it will be published on November 5, 2019. 2) this will be the final entry in the Eternal Hunger Saga. It follows the events of CONSUMED BY WAR but stands on its own. 3) the plot involves a deadly virus and search for a cure. This was originally a concept I had for an earlier book that was shelved until reworked. 4) I wanted to bring some closure to Mayan civilization so tying that into the story was tricky at first. I spent so many hours rewriting and replanting the approach that I could have written half of a full length novel with better planning. 5) the story lead is a strong female character inspired by the amazing women in my immediate and extended family. She’s not perfect but dedicates herself to getting the job done. #book #shortstory #spinoff #virus #mayan #ruins #mayanruins #authorsofinstagram

It’s release day for my new short story THE LOST DAY.

Imagine waking in a reality that isn’t your own. People who know you well are complete strangers to you, but to them nothing is out of the ordinary. You feel lost, but over time you adapt to this new life; until suddenly you vanish and wake up in a new time and place.

THE LOST DAY is a short story that presents that very scenario. Donald Blake must face the ultimate decision that could place the fabric of reality at risk, while trying to understand a new world beyond his comprehension… Available in print at http://www.lulu.com/shop/rick-pipito/the-lost-day/paperback/product-23763373.html

A Little Boy in The Land of the Sleepless Knights

knightsToday is new release day for A LITTLE BOY IN THE LAND OF THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS!!!!  My second children’s book (which exists in the same universe as A LITTLE GIRL IN THE LAND OF THE HICCUPS) is now available in print.  Grab your copy today at http://www.lulu.com.  It will also be available in other markets soon, but why wait, when you can get a first edition printing, and add on any of my prior books as well?

A LITTLE BOY IN THE LAND OF THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS was written for my son nearly two years ago.  It took a while to get it right, but it was worth the wait.  It’s got fantastic artwork by my brother, Dan Pipito, and a heart warming story with a lesson.

When a young boy refuses to sleep he finds himself trapped in the Land of Sleepless Knights. This is where all children go when they don’t get enough rest. Can he figure out how to escape in time or will he turn into one of the Knights and be consumed by the Cranky King?
