BC CoverThe midnight release of Fatal Destiny X is a video game Katie has looked forward to for awhile now. So much so, that she’ll go to the cosplay extremes for such an occasion. In her mind, she’ll finally get to play the game the moment she gets home. First, she’ll need to make her way through the game store in order to buy her own copy of the game.

To her surprise, someone’s already gotten to her copy of the game. If she’s to bring the prize home, she’ll need to think of something pronto in order to thwart her nemesis’s advance. Sadly, before she knows it, things get out of hand, but she’s determined, none-the-less to get the upper hand. A copy of the game is her goal, and she’ll do everything to get it. Or so she thinks.

Things take a different turn when George does the honorable thing. Granted, she now owes him greatly, but that’s a debt she can repay later on, right? Fatal Destiny X is calling her name, and she’s eager to sit down and finally play it. Much to her chagrin, a slew of characters soon enter the fray. Some she knows, and some she doesn’t, but that doesn’t mar the fact that she’ll finally get to play her beloved video game.

As things heat up between her and George, Katie soon realizes just how different things have become. A simple twist of fate has catapulted her into friendships she never thought she’d make. The fact that the game is drawing everyone closer isn’t lost on her. Yet there’s one thing none of them can deny. Fatal Destiny X must be won. If they’re to succeed in making gaming history, they’ll have to set aside their differences, and dive head-first into the heart of the matter. The question is, how can they do that when hormones are raging, and real life insists on getting in the way?

Backward Compatible is a book that certainly won’t disappoint. Granted, unless you’re an avid gamer, some might not get the meanings behind the quirky comebacks, one-liners, and assorted video game Easter eggs included in the story. I absolutely loved this story. It had me bursting into laughter more times than I could count. It’s that good! Trust me, even if you’re not a gamer in real life, you’re still going to enjoy this little gem when the time comes. Kudos, on the writing, Sarah and Pete. You’ve written a book that’s definitely a keeper!

Synopsis:

Not too long ago,

in a town that,

depending on your current location,

is either not super far

or actually quite close…

 

It is a time of chaotic hormones.

Two nerdy gents

home for winter break

have discovered a female gamer

at a midnight release.

 

During the break,

the gamer trio manages

to reveal the game’s secret boss,

a hidden enemy

with enough power to destroy

anything in its path.

 

Pursued by other gamers

who want to be the first

to beat this boss,

George and Katie race to level up,

and, in so doing, restore decency

and sexual activity to their personal galaxy…

 

 

About The Authors:

About Sarah Daltry:

Sarah Daltry writes about the regular people who populate our lives. She’s written works in various genres – romance, erotica, fantasy, horror. Genre isn’t as important as telling a story about people and how their lives unfold. Sarah tends to focus on YA/NA characters but she’s been known to shake it up. Most of her stories are about relationships – romantic, familial, friendly – because love and empathy are the foundation of life. It doesn’t matter if the story is set in contemporary NY, historical Britain, or a fantasy world in the future – human beings are most interesting in the ways they interact with others. This is the principle behind all of Sarah’s stories.

Sarah has spent most of her life in school, from her BA and MA in English and writing to teaching both at the high school and college level. She also loves studying art history and really anything because learning is fun.

When Sarah isn’t writing, she tends to waste a lot of time checking Facebook for pictures of cats, shooting virtual zombies, and simply staring out the window.

She has written several books, most notably Bitter Fruits, an urban fantasy in the Eden’s Fall series, and the Flowering series, including Forget Me Not, Lily of the Valley, and Star of Bethlehem.

About Pete Clark:

Pete Clark likes writing, animals, potato chips, and cheese. Midnight Riders is his first published novel, although he can also proudly say he finally finished Helix Crashing, the fantasy novel he has been working on for over a decade. In addition, he has written Across the Barren Landscape, a collection of linked Western short stories. He also writes plays, both dramatic and comedic.

When he is not writing, Pete tends to ignore everyone around him and obsess over sports.
