Sugar Time: Her name is Sugar. Sugar Sweet. When her Uncle Max falls ill and his collaborators disappear, he asks her to investigate the old Victorian mansion where he conducted his research. Now Sugar must act quickly to unlock the secret of time travel so she can protect her uncle’s research. Uh, aren’t those cats awfully big? What are they doing in the house? How dangerous are they? And then Sugar has to use her uncle’s time machine to dispose of bodies. (How could she explain them?!) And then Sugar packs the time machine with food, water, weapons, her new companions–and other necessities. Way back when, the sabre tooth tigers are merely curious as they sniff around, but the Neanderthals want in. Must move faster. And what if collecting souvenirs affects time?

Joy V. Smith’s collection of Sugar Sweet’s time travel stories has been nominated for a Global Ebook Award.

As she approaches the old mansion housing the laboratory, she is joined by two police offices. Well, she can probably deal with them…

Joy V. Smith has been writing stories since she was a kid and made her own little books. Her favorite genre is science fiction, and her SF books include Strike Three, a post-apocalyptic novel; Hidebound; Pretty Pink Planet; Hot Yellow Planet; and a reprint collection, The Doorway and Other Stories.

Sugar Time, a collection of four time travel tales, will be released as an ebook August 14, 2015, with a print edition to follow. Three of the stories are available as an audiobook, while the fourth, “Flashback,” was published separately.
The Doorway and Other Stories is now available in paperback too:
Here are fourteen of my favorite stories, and since my favorite genre is science fiction, they are mostly SF except for The Princess Quest, a tongue-in-cheek sword and sorcery epic, and Old Rex, a ghost story. They’ve all been published elsewhere, except for Royal Guardians; this is its first time in print. If you like reading about aliens, time travel, symbiotes, and humans searching for a home, family, their own bodies, etc., check it out here: The Doorway and Other Stories
Maxwell Sweet along with two professors have been conducting secret experiments in an old Victorian mansion outside Galveston, Texas. However, the two professors have vanished and Maxwell Sweet has fallen ill. Now, it’s up to Sweet’s tough-as-nails niece to find out what happened to the project: a time machine.
Note: Sugar Time will be available as a book one of these days, and it will include another story in the time machine series that was published separately.
