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)

Pump Up Your Book Chats with Nibi Soto

What do you consider as the most frustrating side of becoming a published author and what has been the most rewarding?

The most frustrating side of becoming a published author was trying to push through the walls that the publishers put up around them for new authors. This economy has made it very difficult for them and for anyone who has a dream of becoming published.

The most rewarding part of being published is knowing that something I enjoyed creating so much can now be shared with other fantasy lovers from all over the world. I absolutely love to… (READ MORE…)

To this day I get an indescribable thrill when I stand in the middle of ancient ruins where my ancestors possibly stood many centuries ago.  Places like the streets of the Roman Empire or Ephesus set my imagination on fire.  It was amazing to me that… (read more)

Interview by the Hot Author Report

Q: What compelled you to write your first book?

I’ve traveled all of my life and have always been fascinated with historical places and ancient things. As I strolled through old, dilapidated structures, I used to imagine how they would have looked when they were first built and what the people were like.  Over 20 years ago I began to imagine how wonderful it would be to travel back in time and be apart of their lives for just one day.  I entertained some ideas as to how I might do that and began jotting down notes in a book I carried around with me.  When two of my granddaughters started writing stories for school, I caught the bug myself.  I read the kids my first chapter to see what they thought.  To my surprise they loved it and wanted more.  As I started on the next chapter it was as if… (read more)
