It’s the 21st century, and Jaclyn Rousseau is not where she should be. 1661 disappeared before her eyes, and there’s no way home. That matters not to Jaclyn—she lost her lover, and everything else that meant anything to her, in the West Indies.
In an adventure that crosses time and the Atlantic, a murderous pirate must find a place for herself in this new world.
Can she escape her past, or will it catch up with her?

I also interviewed my editor, Jeremiah Murphy, about his role and what he has enjoyed about the novel.

About Solarwyrm Press
Adrift is being published by Solarwyrm Press, which was set up by Jax Goss and myself to publish stories that don’t necessarily fit standard genres. Solarwyrm’s first publication, Fae Fatales: A Fantasy Noir Anthology, edited by Jax, had a successful run on Indiegogo in March/April. This anthology, which includes my story “Siren”—a spin-off from Adrift—is included in some of the rewards, or you can purchase it now on Amazon (Full colour edition, Black & white edition, or Kindle ebook) or on Smashwords (ebook)
As part of Solarwyrm, Jax is currently looking for submissions for her next anthology with a “precocious children in adult stories” theme. If you’re a writer and are interested in submitting something, please check out the call for submissions. The deadline is November 30.
