TRAVELER Deleted Scene: Jessa Had A Secret

deleted

TRAVELER has gone through many revisions on its road to being a published novel. A lot of is was polished and re-arranged, and two subplots were cut completely. One of them I felt a little torn over, but the editors felt it was too much – considering the plot arc of that character.

So here’s what the original scene looked like, the first time Jessa stepped through an antique mirror and met Pirate Finn . . . Continue reading

Another Great Review of TRAVELER by With Love For Books

withlove

Many thanks to Suze at WithLoveForBooks.com for her great and thorough review of TRAVELER! Here’s a bit of what Suze had to say:

“The possibilities are endless, but she keeps it easy to follow, which is something I loved. Traveler uses a well known concept of parallel universes, which I always find fascinating as the success of the stories usually depends on the fantasy and creativity of the author. It was fun to take a look into L.E. DeLano’s imaginary world. Traveler has an unexpected and open ending, which instantly made me want to read more. I really liked this compelling story.”

You can read the full review on their website, and be sure to check out all the other reviews while you’re there! Suze, Anniek and Tanya do a fabulous job and really, really love what they do.

Thanks again to With Love For Books!

Thank You, Barnes & Noble!

I had a book signing at Barnes and Noble in Plymouth Meeting, PA on Saturday, and it was tremendous fun! I want to give a big shout-out to Heather (pictured with me there) for her bubbling enthusiasm and for making me feel like a rock star! Also to the barista that made me an incredible cup of chai. And of course, a round of thanks to all the readers who showed up to chat and to get their books signed.

This was my second author event, and let me tell you . . . it still feels surreal. But great!

This weekend, I’ll be at Barnes and Noble in Wyomissing, PA. Stop by and wish me Happy Birthday!

Tidbit Tuesday: Finn’s Story

In TRAVELER, we meet many versions of Jessa and Finn as we slide in and out of alternate realities. In this scene, Finn is newly arrived at Jessa’s school, and her Creative Writing teacher has set an assignment – make up a story about the new guy.


She puts the marker to the whiteboard and writes Finn’s Story.

“So,” she says. “Finn’s story. Begin!”

I look over at him conspiratorially, wondering just which Finn he’s going to pick to be. He gives me a sly look, and then so I can’t see what he’s doing. I shoot him a mean look in return, and I write. Continue reading
