Christmas Gift from Nibi

I am creating a Serial Book on the www.beyondthemapsboundary.com website for a free read of the novel. I’ll be posting a new chapter every Monday from now on until all 28 chapters are up for viewing.  I think you’ll get a kick out of the story if you haven’t already read it and of course, if you can’t wait to read it you can purchase it on the website at a discount and I’ll sign it for you.

Merry Christmas and happy reading!

Assembly Presentation at South Weber Elementary

I did a presentation today to the most amazing group of over 400 students, grades three through six, at South Weber Elementary School, South Weber, Utah.  They were exceptionally bright and well behaved, which is a tribute to their parents, teachers and the school administrators.  It’s something they all can be proud of.

I want to thank the Librarian, Jan Stanger for setting up the assembly and all the work she did to help the children get ready.  Also, the Principal, Marilyn Hales, was so very generous with her time to mentor me in an even better presentation.  These two woman are amazing!  Special sound to Jennifer and others whose names I do not know, to get the equipment up and running.  Good people!

I had a lot of fun and plan to return for lunch on the 21st of this month to do more book signings.

Until then, you South Weber readers…”Happy Reading!”

Book II Nearing Completion

The second book in the series is nearing completion.  It will be entitled “The Chronicles of Quant” and will be a continuation of the adventure from the first book.  Several new characters will be introduced and the fun never ends.

Goodreads

I met a kindred spirit last week who apparently read the novel in one night.  What a reader!  She connected me with Goodreads and added a review.  It opened another interesting avenue for me as a new author and I’m excited for the opportunity to share with other readers at Goodreads.  Thanks Jen!

Review: Books and Movies

This is truly one of the most amazing time-traveler stories I ever read and for sure is among the best three books I’ve read this year. The plot is so full of twists that keeps us, the readers, on the edge on every page we turn. The description of the characters and their actions is so rich in details that we feel ourselves traveling together with Mattie or helping Trevor supporting her throughout the book. When we talk about time traveling stories,  classics like The Time Machine (H.G. Wells), or Timeline (Michael Crichton) are always remembered. This book is destined to be remember as one of the greatest science-fantasy time-travelers stories ever. The author wrote a masterpiece that deserves a massive audience and I am eager to read the sequence of this incredible saga.  (read more here…)

VBT Review by Martha’s Bookshelf

This fun, fast read pulls you in quickly and sends you along time hopping and teleporting!

The author has created a time traveling world with its own special jargon: Trekkers, Splitters, Divvys, Boosts and more. There is a “Words and Terms” in the back to help follow the new buzz terms. The action is fast paced from beginning to end and…

VBT Book Review: FromtheShadows.com

Nancy Drew meets Kage Baker’s The Company. Nibi Soto has created an enjoyable world where time travel is a reality to Trekkers, a select few who have inherited the DNA and are gifted with the secret knowledge of their ancestors.  Soto’s characters are refreshingly charming.   This is a quick, fanciful read enjoyable for readers of all ages.

I would recommend Beyond the Map’s Boundary to readers of young adult, fantasy, paranormal, adventure, and mystery genres and especially to young fans of lighthearted time travel adventures.  (read more…)

VBT Book Review: by The Very Latest Thing

Beyond the Map’s Boundary: A Timely Sort of Adventure by Nibi Soto is a fantasy adventure involving a family of time-travelers. Although aimed at the young adult market, I believe that it will appeal to many older adults as well. The characters are realistic and interesting. The action is tense and starts immediately; a quiet family picnic suddenly turns into a life-and-death struggle, a step in the wrong spot sends someone zooming back in time. (read more…)

The Story Behind ‘Beyond the Map’s Boundary’
By Nibi Soto

My father was born with the ‘Travel Bug’ and passed it on to me. For as long as I can remember we were on the road every summer for the entire length of his vacation. He drove our family all over the United States, Canada and Mexico to see historical landmarks that made the subject of history in school come alive for my brothers and me. By the time I was 17 we had been in every state of the Union a minimum of four times each, with the exception of Hawaii and Alaska. After high school I traveled to both of them numerous times, as well as all over the world. I developed a fascination for world history the same as I had for American history.

To this day I get an indescribable thrill when I… (read more)
