There are presently five volumes in the Pastmaster series featuring Alex Balfour,  a time-traveling history professor. If you watched the video or have read the books, (all of them are available as Kindles) you know that up to now he has traveled to a number of fascinating places in the past: Russia during the revolution, The American West at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, WWII Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima, aboard the Titanic and the in the Civil War. In the last book, he and Molly had a baby, who has inherited the time shifting ability. Several times the baby has gone back in time to be with Alex's hated father. Molly has told Alex that he must travel back in time, find his father and kill him to break the connection with the child. Will Alex be able to control his time shifting ability with that sort of precision? And if he can, will he be able to kill his own father? And what if back in time the child is no longer a child, but a young man?

The only way we're ever going to answer these questions is if readers pledge the money and I write the book.

Risks and challenges

I've written many books so I know what I'm doing. Pretty much the only thing that would put the project at risk is if I die. Which is always a possibility.
