What readers are saying about this book
Been waiting for this The saga continues. Well written, so much so that you can step into it. Its also a snarky, fun, enjoyable read. From the first two books, you know what has to happen, but the how and the way makes for the interesting story. It's also fun to imagine what you would if you were thrown back in time. Enjoy.
This is my new favorite series! I really enjoy these books! So much so I was desperately refreshing last night to see if it was available yet! I finished this one already and now I have to wait again! Please read this series so we can keep getting more!
Another wonderful chapter in the series The story of our Baron, now Count (and probably future King) continues. Some elements of the story remind me of the ‘Jackson’ series and loved it. I also appreciate the regular release schedule.
Another good book in anotheer good series by Ed Nelson Things keep getting better for his and his people, he manages to save them from the plague, introduces antibiotics, introduces radios. Oh, and it is time for railroads! You just have to read it for yourself. Get it, read it, you won't be sorry!

Frequently Asked Questions for Ed Nelson
What inspired you to become a writer, and what drives you to continue writing today?
I had a contracted project finished and had time before the next one started. I had been thinking about a story for several years so decided to give it a try. It worked. I'm retired now so it is a nice hobby and the extra income is nice.
Can you tell us about your writing process? Do you have any specific rituals or habits that help you get into the writing zone?
I started out as a pantser, writing by the seat of my pants, no plot, no ending just writing. That works on a single novel but not a series. So now I try to plot, only gross outlines. When I get hung up on where to go next the pantser takes over.
Your latest book, Cast in Time, has been receiving excellent reviews. What was the most challenging part of writing it, and what do you hope readers will take away from it?
Plotting! Don't have telephones before you have electricity under control. Well maybe two tin cans and a string.
How do you approach character development? Are your characters based on real people, fictional archetypes, or entirely original creations?
I'm the hero of course. Eveyone else is an archetype. As a hero I'm also a archetype. That makes me a pretty shallow person! Maybe I'm not a hero after all.
What do you believe is the most critical element of a compelling story, and how do you ensure you deliver it in your writing?
Involving the reader deeper and deeper into the story until the most outrageous acts are believable.
Writing can be a solitary endeavor. How do you handle writer's block or self-doubt, and what advice would you give to aspiring writers facing similar challenges?
Walk away until the guilt piles up and start writing again.
Many of your readers admire your distinct writing style. How did you develop your voice, and how important do you think it is for writers to find their unique voice?
My voice is exactly that. When I type out the words I'm speaking them in my head as though I was telling the story our loud around a campfire. It is how I speak.
Beyond the pages of your books, what other forms of storytelling inspire you? Are there any particular authors, films, or artistic mediums that have influenced your writing?
I'm a voracious reader so many books have influenced me. I can't point to any specific one, but I know that I have picked up elements of storytelling.
