You’ll love the action and get drawn in by the characters. A snippet of a blog review:
Since audiobooks are a great getaway and a great companion for traveling, why not give it a listen! Check this time-travel adventure out, featuring a strong female heroine for a fine mix of reality and sci-fi fantasy.
Narrated by the talented Daniela Acitelli! “A future that I could never imagine, but that the author described beautifully. Highly recommend this and the first in the series!” – Goodreads Review
I’m so excited to have been invited to be interviewed on a Live Podcast by Carter Novels on their Meet the Author Podcast! It happens this evening, March 16th at 7 p.m. EST. Here is information from their Facebook post on how you can listen in:
Popular Opinion, copyright 2019 by Pamela Schloesser Canepa
“According to popular opinion, these humans are good for nothing but space fuel, or an after-dinner snack. Not much substantial about them at all.” Dorf looked down at the landscape that grew closer and closer to them.
Mifkus just shrugged. How could he convince the ogre any different?
“I mean, we’ve been visiting and observing for centuries and they don’t even suspect. Politicians concern themselves with little more than the production and consumption of green legal tender. I don’t see humans as worthy of a friendly greeting. Destruction should be our goal.”
Mifkus zoomed his eyes into focus. “Slow down.” A dot on a city street below became visible. Slowly, he pushed the share button and an image came to the big screen.
“There. Someone knows we’re here. She’ll be the bridge toward peaceful acclimation. Destruction is not needed.” He sighed in relief.
“Nonsense. Those daft care-takers will erase any hopes of sensibility in that child.”
“Not if we make our appearance now. A peaceful hello, to just this one. Please, hear me out. We’ll make a vote.” He looked pleadingly at the others.
Peaceful appearance won out over hostile Earth takeover. And today she lives to tell the tale of the odd green creatures that presented her with her first daffodil. Tomorrow, who knows what may bridge us toward universal peace.
Do you enjoy time travel? You can currently get either of the Kindle books in my Detours in Time series for just .99 on a Kindle Countdown deal in the U.S. right now. These books are also on Kindle Countdown in the U.K. this week. Act now!
You’ll find a little bit of romance as a sweet friendship grows, a lot of future oddities, a dystopian feel, some tension, and a bit of fun as they travel to the future and get lost for a while and grapple with many split-second decisions that seem to drastically change the future they are seeing. Laugh as these characters from 1997 encounter “swipe right” and other technology we take for granted.
“Canepa does an outstanding job of moving the plot along with vivid images that really bring this story to life. The banter between Milt and Pinky is always light-hearted as their relationship progresses.” -Reader’s Favorite review
” ….this is a thrilling science fiction adventure! While it is mostly from Tabitha’s point of view, I liked escaping the present with her. She’s a wonderfully complicated character, so different from myself. Her reasoning and the resulting consequences make this a page turner.” -N.N. Light review
Detours in Time is now in audiobook, and Undercurrents in Time will soon follow. If you purchase a book in Kindle format, you can get the audiobook at a discounted price on Amazon. Check it out after purchasing the Kindle….You just may like that deal!
Another ‘author’s firsts’ challenge unlocked! Detours in Time, the sci-fi time-travel novel, is now available in audiobook! I have been so excited about this, and editing was a bear! I think the narrator and I were both a little perfectionistic with this project. Hopefully that means a better product for the reader, err, listener.

2018- Earned the title of ‘Official Selection’ in New Apple Summer E-book awards, Young Adult Sci-fi/Horror
Detours in Time pairs professor Milt Braddock with the younger Pinky (Tabitha), a dancer and artist, on a trip to the future that will test their resolve and their steadfast friendship. Hailed by reviewers as “a great way to spend a few hours in both another world and another time!” –Tome Tender Book Blog
The narrator is Emory Stegmer, a musician, reporter, and Flight Software Lead with NASA. He is fairly new to fiction narration, but his accents are the bomb! You can check out his Twitter at @VAXHeadroom if you’re curious.
When you’re so proud of your baby, you want to show it off, and sure, the cover’s pretty cool, but I’m responsible for what’s inside of it. What better way to get eyes on my story than by having a celebration sale?
It’s been two years since this baby was loosed upon the world! I am a proud mama who wants more people to be exposed to it, so I’m celebrating with a Kindle Countdown deal. Detours in Time, my first full-length sci-fi novel, is only .99 for Kindle format in the US and UK until 6/23! It is also available in Kindle unlimited, if you have a subscription. Please also share the deal with a friend today!
Detours in Time could be considered a fun read full of adventure, but it also involves some serious matters, such as what our world will be like in the future, what operating a cell phone is like to someone who was stuck in the late nineties, and where our loved ones might end up. There is also sequel, and I’ll be offering that on a Countdown deal toward the end of this month. Both have earned the Reader’s Favorite 5 star seal of approval. Detours in Time has earned some appreciation and acclaim. Thank you to those who have posted reviews!
“With some clever plot twists and attention to “future” details, Ms. Canepa has created a science fiction tale that is equal parts fun, fascinating, and thought-provoking!…An unlikely pair, their (Tabitha’s and Milt’s) personal takes on what they witness and their witty repartee makes Pamela Schloesser Canepa’sDETOURS IN TIME a great way to spend a few hours in both another world and another time!” Tome Tender Book blog
From recent reviews: “Loved this book. A page turner for sure, with some unexpected twists and turns. You feel for the two main characters.” -Maria
“An enjoyable read and look forward to the next book in the series.” -Karen
What do your behaviors say about you? Who really cares? Someone does. Humans are inclined toward making patterns, setting boundaries to their land to say what is theirs. Other humans want no less than what you have. These imaginary boundaries sometimes can be seen from outer space. They make the place look ridiculous and make humans quite predictable.
“Merv, you’re being pretty ominous. I really don’t think you want to share thi…”
“Stop second guessing me, Philbert. You always do that; you’re just as predictable as a human, just like that one in the cage over there.”
“Sorry specimen, he. Definitely needs a mate. Of course, he was always alone on Earth. Showed up at work at 7:35 after stopping by Smoothie Champ. Home at 5:30 after shopping for dinner and his next day’s lunch. What a boring fellow. No wonder he’s sweating back there. Something new has happened in his life!”
“Philbert, focus. We need a second specimen. How about that one that stops in the bodega every Weds. morning and heads to the bookstore every Thurs. night. I’ve been watching for four weeks; it seems pretty reliable. We should swoop in during our current 24 hour period. I like these patterns. It’s a good compliment to that turtle of a man back there.”
“It’s worth a try. You’ve done well, Merv. I think this will get you promoted!”
A smile cracked a million crevices in Merv’s face. It had never looked as beautiful to Philbert. He closed his eyes to memorize the patterns in the cracks. Certainly Merv would not let something like a smile repeat itself too often.
