Mrs. Perivale

and the

Blue Fire Crystal

By Dash Hoffman

Limited Edition

Paperback with

handwritten dedication

Mrs. Alice Perivale is finished with her life. At 73 years old she is told that she is useless to the world and she begins to wonder if it’s true, until she meets the most unusual creature she has ever seen, and finds herself in a realm she never could have imagined, on a journey almost no one believes that she can undertake.

Against all odds, she accepts the prophesied challenge and she embarks on an adventure to save the strange realm she is in. She must find her way through a bizarre and wild world to take back the Blue Fire Crystal; a powerful and vital gem stolen by a dark force no one has ever seen, hidden away in a palace no one has ever found.

She does not go alone. She is accompanied by her seven loyal cats; Tao the Siamese, Sophie the Pampered Princess, Montgomery the Old Gentleman, Bailey the Fat Calico, Jynx the Black, Oscar the Orange Kitten in Training, and Marlowe the Devoted Abyssinian whose place is always at Mrs. Perivale's side.

Her delicate Butler, Henderson, who has no desire whatsoever for adventure, swallows his fears and chases along after her, obliged to his duty to watch over her, making sure that her pills are taken on time, and tea is served as and when it should be.

It is because no one believes she can, that she takes on the challenge, and she must find out for herself whether her life is really over, or if the best of it may be yet to come.

The book born of a meme:

The meme shown here went viral when @BroodingYAhero suggested that a grandmother would make a better heroine in a prophecy novel than a teenager. @Dinuriel agreed, vowing to 'read the hell out of a series with a chosen eighty-five year old woman'... and upon seeing the meme, Dash Hoffman knew that the book had to be written, and so it was.

Mrs. Perivale, her seven cats, and her very prim and proper butler were born out of a viral meme, and have since endeavored to save the magical world of Corevé, fulfilling a prophesy and having a great adventure along the way. Stabtastic knitting needles included, as per the request.

With thanks to Brooding YA Hero and Dinuriel for the inspiriation.

Journey Blue

By Dash Hoffman

Limited Edition

Paperback with

handwritten dedication

Blue is a young girl who lives in a very strange world. She begins to see visions of a boy who seems to be reaching out to her, and she feels a powerful, almost gravitational draw to him. Driven by curiosity and unable to deny the pull she feels, she sets out on a completely surreal journey through her bizarre world. There are never before seen, extraordinary, and peculiar creatures to be discovered, as Blue and her friends embark upon a wild, wild ride through this fantastic adventure!

Some insight: If Salvador Dali wrote an adventure book, this would be it, and if it's ever made into a movie, no one but Tim Burton may direct it. If you love Alice in Wonderland, this is your next book!

The Wish Weaver

By Dash Hoffman

 

Limited Edition

Paperback with

handwritten dedication

 

Amias and his young friends enjoy simple lives in their village at the foot of the Kamala mountains, though there are circumstances for each of them that they wish they could change; a family member with ill health, a love unrequited, a life debt that cannot be repaid, and more. A traveling stranger passes through the village and enchants them with a tale of the Wish Weaver who lives far up the mountain and weaves wishes into being. 

When his friends decide to go to the Wish Weaver to change their lives, Amias determines to go with them, though he is skeptical about anyone granting wishes freely to one and all. Along the journey the friends face tremendous hardships and when their quest takes a dark turn, Amias becomes the only one who might be able to save them all. If he is very clever and very lucky, his sole wish might come true.

This book is written in the style of an old Grimm's Bros fairytale and an Aesop fable. It is light and dark, and there are many moral lessons to discover woven deftly into the story. This tale takes a hard look at choosing what is right over what is easy, at moral value over material value, at self-love over infatuation, and at strong, true friendships.

Scientists at the CERN facility in Geneva are on the edge of further discoveries with the Higgs boson… the God particle. Not everyone believes the Higgs boson particle should be researched or tampered with, for fear that the known universe may be destroyed by it.

Dr. Schaeffer is the head of the facility, and by a whim of fate he is not present at the facility one morning when the most sophisticated bomb ever designed explodes far beneath the ground, disintegrating the Large Hadron Collider, all of the computers and technology connected to it, and every scientist at the facility who was in attendance at the presentation of a new test on the Higgs boson.

Dr. Schaeffer puts together a team of highly specialized individuals and gives them a special mission. There is a prototype time machine that he has been helping to create. He directs the team to go back in time and stop the creator of the bomb so that it is never made.

The team goes back in time, but what they discover when they find the creator of the bomb defies everything they know, and the goals of the mission as well as the future of science and humanity must change. The team faces many challenges along the way, the most difficult of which is how to change the future for the best, knowing that they could be going back to a world they do not know.

Mason Aldridge is a modern day man, fascinated with history.

He steps into the old Wakefield Pinnacle building to see the remnants of the United States Geological Society; a nearly defunct group that once roamed the earth, creating maps of unexplored lands and documenting unknown cultures.  

Amidst the dusty rolls of yellowed maps and canyons of old bookshelves, he finds an elderly gentleman; Samuel Hawkins. When Samuel opens up to Mason, the young man learns that the earth was only part of what the group explored. There was a secret association hidden within the members and the very walls of the geological exploration team…

 

Samuel Hawkins recounts his adventures as an explorer in the carefully protected order, DEUS: Domain of Earth Unigraphical Society. It was a small group of people who explored regions not on the earth, and cultures that lived on other planets. Samuel finds a way from the end of his years back to his youth, and Mason discovers that the past he thought he knew so well was far richer with the future than he ever could have dreamed.
