The Man vs Nature Universe–What’s That About?

I’m over at Debra Purdy King’s blog, Mystery Deb, to talk about my latest prehistoric fiction release, Against All Odds.

Look forward to chatting!

Sneak peek:

Hi Debra! Thanks so much for offering to host me on your blog. I’m excited to have your help in launching my latest prehistoric fiction, Against All Odds, Book 3 of the Crossroads trilogy:

A million years of evolution made Xhosa tough but was it enough? She and her People finally reach their destination—a glorious land of tall grasses, few predators, and an abundance that seems limitless, but an enemy greater than any they have met so far threatens to end their dreams. If Xhosa can’t stop this one, she and her People must again flee.

The Crossroads trilogy is set 850,000 years ago, a time in prehistory when man populated most of Eurasia. He was a violent species, fully capable of addressing the many hardships that threatened his survival except for one: future man, a smarter version of himself, one destined to obliterate all those who came before.

    • I do! I’ll have a trilogy for each major event in man’s evolution. This will go back to Homo habilis (the star of Born in a Treacherous Time). There’s so much more amazing about that seminal species!

  1. That was a great summary of your trilogies, Jacqui. I didn’t know there was going to be third one (or I forgot – that age thing). I’m so glad the stories are going to continue. I love your worldbuilding and research. The books are fascinating and I’m always eager to read. 🙂

    • You know how this goes, Diana. The brain doesn’t always let us stop when we think we’re going to. I’ve seen that happen with your stories, too. I’m so excited about the next books I want to sit and write nonstop!
