Blurb: Shortlisted in the 2009 Australian/New Zealand IP Awards. The mathematics of the pyramids, books of the Nine Unknown Men and numbered sequences concealed in ancient texts. When an amateur astronomer uncovers these mysteries he is caught in a deadly race to seek out the secrets of the past and carry them safely into the next age.

My Review: In all honesty, I’ve been sitting on this review for days now; not at all sure how to express myself. I don’t think my scrambled thoughts are going to get much better, so lets hope I manage to do this novel justice.

    That sounds like a great book, Dianne. I entered the draw, but if I don’t win, it’ll be one to add to my TBR pile. :)

    Well done! Another great review of your work. :)

    Would love to see a post here sometime on ‘how to market your novel’. I’m sure many writers would love to know where to start and what to avoid.

        I don’t mind a free book now and then from someone I don’t know (like from the heap of freebies on Amazon), but I always try to buy books from fellow WP bloggers. I want to show my love and support. :-)

    I have just read the review of your book on tiffanylovesbooks, this sounds a story right up my street… I have read many books on the pyramids and am presently reading Egyptian Dawn by Robert Temple. As a land surveyor and a bit of a mathematician, I even have a few theory’s myself… This sounds like a book I must invest in… lovely book review she gave you…

      Thank you! I thought it was a great review as well (it made me blush) – she’s a very thorough reviewer and ‘tells it like it is – warts and all’, which makes people like me a little nervous before the review comes out! ;)

        The mathematical discoveries in this book are actually astounding… I have transferred an awful lot of his discoveries onto my computer to check with certain hypothesis that I have and have come across quite a bit that ties in with my theories on face slopes, positions, and layouts… a real mystifying phenomenon

        I find it amazing that most people take these things for granted and don’t ever stop to think about the architectural, mathematic and advanced scientific knowledge of ancient people. Once you start to delve below the surface – it blows conventional theories out of the water ;) I’m so glad you’re interested in these things!

    Aren’t you gorgeous :-) (well we knew that now didn’t we) Another site I follow and contribute to is 20 lines a day. Melissa is setting up a page for us with Novels, short stories etc so that others may have the opportunity of seeing our works. This would be a read for my Mr S as he loves this type of read.
