I'd die if I don't have: A loaded e-reader

“The Kaleidoscope” spins computer nerd Harold Donaldson’s world 
from black-and-white boring into Technicolor adventure.

     Ruddy complexions were like skywriting, a girl in high school had told Harold once. The message may appear slowly, but everyone can see it for miles around and remember it for days. “I have to get back to work.” He gathered up his trash and headed for the can. When he turned around, Pepper was standing close, nose to his chin. “Tell Glenda hello.” Before he could go, she grabbed his arm.
     “Harry, I really mean it. I am glad I saw...what I saw. Where did you get it again? Could I get one like it, or is that a one-of-a-kind thing?”
     He told her about the encounter in the park with the homeless man. “It’s a mystery why he picked me.” He pictured the day of the handoff, the police hurrying the old guy away before he could explain himself. The police responding to his own complaint about the vagrants camping out. She was the first person he shared this with.
     “You have been given much responsibility in many areas.” With that, she stood on tiptoe and pecked him on the cheek. “You have been given a gift. Thank you for sharing your magical looking-piece with me.”
    “Um. You’re welcome. And thanks.” He demurred, dropping his hand from her grip. “But I don’t believe in magic.”
     “A man of science and numbers, I get it.” She tipped her head sideways, considering him. “The mysteries of the universe reveal more than we see with our eyes or hear with our ears. If we slow down and really absorb what it’s trying to teach us, we might be surprised and delighted.” She poked a slender finger at his chest. “I choose to keep my mind open to the possibilities. What about you, Harry?”

To answer the question about the title, The Kaleidoscope is actually a "cast" member. When Harold, a computer forensics nerd, decides he needs to prove what a nice guy he is to get a job promotion, he tries to give a homeless guy some pocket change. Instead of taking the coins, though, the man insists Harold take a beautiful, handcrafted kaleidoscope that ends up being able to show people glimpses of their future. The excitement begins then, when the bad guys find out Harold's got the 'scope and he has to figure out what makes it work and why everyone wants to own the mysterious device!

Long answer to a short question...but I'm super excited about this story, and think anyone who likes romance to adventure to suspense with a touch of humor will enjoy "The Kaleidoscope."

Oh, and the cover just won InD'Tale's Creme de la Cover contest! Many thanks to Diana Carlile at Wild Rose Press for her gorgeous design.
