Hi guys!!!!

It’s Janet, your old Big Big Brother mama, here to say hello!

First I just want to say how much I miss ya’ll, and writing for BBB full time. Some of you long-time readers may remember that I was the original author of our fantastic site.

Two years ago, I ‘retired’ to pursue my life-long dream of writing Young Adult fiction. But I left you in the absolute BEST of hands, because Todd is simply AMAZING!! I read his updates every day, and just like you, I can’t wait to hear his thoughts on this upcoming season! (Come ON!! Get started already, CBS!!)

(BTW–Looks like it’s gonna be a DOOZY!!)

Some exciting things have been happening for me, and before the season starts, I wanted to pop in and give you a little update. 🙂

Last fall, I signed a very nice deal with NYC publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, for my debut Young Adult Time Travel series, INTO THE DIM, which will hit bookstores (and Amazon, etc.) on March 1st, 2016!! A few days ago, the gorgeous cover was revealed on the Fiction site, YABooksCentral.com. You all mean so much to me, that I just had to share my good news!

Thank you so much for being part of my life, and here’s to a KICKASS Big Brother 2015 Season!

And without any more of my yapping….Here it is:

INTO THE DIM by Janet B Tayor

In Hope Walton’s small town, being the “homeschooled girl” with crippling phobias doesn’t exactly endear her to her adoptive dad’s perfectly blond, perfectly southern family. But when her mom is killed in a natural disaster thousands of miles from home, Hope’s secluded world crumbles. Foisted off on an aunt she’s never met, Hope travels to Scotland where she soon discovers her mom was more than a brilliant academic. A member of a secret society of time travelers, Hope’s mom is alive, though currently trapped in the twelfth century, during the age of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Now Hope must conquer her fears and travel back the a brutal, medieval world to rescue her mom before she’s lost for good.
Along the way, Hope will learn more family secrets, and meet a mysterious boy who could be vital to setting her mother free . . . or the key to Hope’s undoing.
