Bus Stop on a Strange Loop by Shaune Lafferty Webb

Just found out that a terrific former contributor to the Nautilus Engine, Shaune Lafferty Webb, has published her first novel, Bus Stop on a Strange Loop through Winterbourne Publishing.  You may remember Shaune's wonderful story, "Memory Lane", about a very special item that makes its way back to a very unusual antique shop.  If so, you know she has mad writing skills and this new work should be a page-turner!

Here's the teaser from Amazon:

When brothers Nicky and Ethan escape the degraded, dangerous world of the future, they are seeking only sanctuary and peace. All they want is to leave their past behind them, but Ethan's unique talent, the instrument of their escape, means the past can never be forgotten - Nicky and Ethan have been followed... Schoolteacher Olivia lives a lonely but safe life in the home of her late foster parents, a home she is about to lose. After an unsettling encounter with her new neighbours and a series of puzzling break-ins, Olivia is inadvertently drawn into the brothers' lives, and her own past is brought into sharp relief by her discovery of a cache of her foster mother's diaries, which raise questions about her birth parents. The deeper she delves into the diaries, the closer she draws to unravelling an old mystery that will taint her relationship with Nicky and Ethan and challenge her perception of reality. As Olivia and the brothers are about to discover, sometimes paths intersect more than once.

You can get your eager little paws on a copy several ways.  Amazon has the trade paperback here or you can go the Kindle e-book route here.   While you're on Amazon, you might as well go right ahead and read Shaune's bio.  Further info on the book can be found over at the publisher's site.

It is also available through B&N:  trade or nook book and probably a few other vendors as well.

When we've had a chance to hunker down in our comfy chair with it, we'll review it for you, but having read Shaune before, I trust it will be a real treat!
