Braxton Is Not Afraid to Take Chances

What more could an author want than to hear praise like that? When I wrote Missing, I knew I was going out on a limb with how I chose to tell that story. And with Destiny on the Tracks, I’ve changed paths again, yet attempt to continue to tell stories in an unconventional way. The review just posted by the Indie Reviewer lifts me in a way I can’t describe.

“I easily fell into this lovely story and was quickly swept up in the time-travel fantasy.”

“There is a sweetness and distinct old world romantic charm to their love story that lends itself well to the time and place of this tale.”

Destiny on the Tracks is a story that lingers. It is at once a poignant, haunting and lovely tale. I recommend this story without hesitation, in particular for those romantics who believe that love can not only reach back in time but can also transcend the hereafter.”

Book Launch Day

There is something very exciting about this day no matter if it is your first time or you have gone through it before. Knowing your work is now out there for others to finally read and hopefully enjoy: can’t describe the feeling.

If you love romance, fate, and a quick read – head to you favorite eReader store and download Destiny on the Tracks.

Here is what a few early reviews have said:

“Wheeler’s and Nicola’s destinies are intertwined even though there was over ninety years separating them and you really won’t see the ending coming, it was a twist that surprised me and had a beautiful but poignant feel to it.” MM Good Book Reviews

“Nicola is lovingly drawn by the author. He is a lovely combination of sweet, down-to-earth and unsure of what it means to be someone who has affections for men – it is 1918. Destiny on the Tracks encompasses a few themes – time travel, contemporary and historical themes, a bit of an urban legend/fairy tale feel,  romance, a first time sexual encounter,  and a journey that I thoroughly enjoyed.” On Top Down Under Book Reviews

“Braxton’s writing is nice, simple and flows. It engaged me for a good couple of hours and I refused to put my Kindle away until I was finished with it. Romance – handled brilliantly. There are moments in this book that melted my heart and the dialogue is spot on. Romance lovers should definitely give this a go! If I hadn’t read this one, I would have missed out on a beautiful story!” Sid Love MM Romance & More

What Took Me to Destiny

photo (70)I always loved the circus as a child. I found it a magical place. Back then I never thought of how the animals were being treated or what the back stories of these people must be.  I was simply enjoying the atmosphere and being swept away under the big tent.

In some respects, I’m sure that is what drew me to that setting for my latest Destiny on The Tracks. That kind of setting offers many possibilities by way of romance. But as a young boy, my mind wasn’t on romance – especially of the same-sex variety. But that is what is on the minds of Wheeler Reynolds and Nicola Tenaglia in my story. The man watching the circus act and the man performing the stunts as he flies through the air. I also read the story of a train wreck that occurred early int he 1900s carrying a circus and was fascinated about how I could incorporate that into a story.

But it is also my way of paying homage to so many time travel movies and books that I have loved. Time & AgainSomewhere in TimeThe Time Traveler’s WifeTime After Time. Those that mix an element of a misplaced person that finds love when they least expect it; the romantic in me oozes out.

So this book may seem different from my debut novel that came out last fall, but isn’t that what a sophomore excursion should do? Take a reader to a slightly different place to show them you are capable of more than one style? But still: I can’t help but add a twist here and there. Hope this one proves acceptable to those that loved Missing.

Be sure and let me know after you read it! I love to hear from people.
