Watch Webcam While Waiting for Book Cover:

We here at Cheops Books LLC have recently mentioned that the cover of Old Faithful Plot by Dora Benley, yet to be released, is “under construction”. It is being redesigned. While you wait to see what it will be like, you can feast your eyes on the Old Faithful webcam instead. It is provided gratis of the National Park Service. In the meantime you can check in to see what the geyser itself it up to right now covered in snow surrounded by an extremely white landscape.

While they are hiding out from Dora’s husband at the Old Faithful Lodge in 1933, Dora and Edward are also hiding Lawrence maps that Churchill has given them and which Hitler would do anything to get his hands on. Enter Helga and Herr von Wessel, Hitler’s top spies. They warn Colonel Sir Edward Ware and Dora that either they hand over the top secret maps, key to world domination, or they will blow up Yellowstone National Park. They will turn the famous geyser basin into volcanic rubble – and the rest of America, too, which would be buried in volcanic ash just like Pompeii. And if that doesn’t work they have an even darker plot up their sleeves, one that would change history itself.

Right now as a place holder we have a vintage couple from the time period of the 1930s embracing to serve as a cover for the upcoming alternative history thriller, Old Faithful Plot. But we would like to have a cover that shows something of Yellowstone such as Old Faithful geyser, even if it replaces the current rose on the front cover. Cheops Books LLC is curious to see what you could come up with. The contest will be open until Christmas Day. The results will be announced then on our blog page. The prize will be a free download of one of our ebooks, your choice.

Cruising Along Route 66 With Cheops Books:
Old Faithful Plot has recently expanded to include Route 66. The Lincoln Highway began in 1913. Route 66 came later. But by 1933, the year of Edward’s and Dora’s epic journey west to escape Hitler’s agents, both existed and were the primary means that Easterners used to drive west, either northwest or southwest.
Fleeing Hitler’s agents and Dora’s husband’s photographers, Edward and Dora begin their journey in a hurry in Manhattan at the Waldorf Astoria. Edward had just come off an ocean liner from England. Now under special orders from Winston Churchill, the back bencher for whom he works, he races west. He is trying to meet a rendezvous set up by Churchill to hand over the Lawrence maps that he has been hiding up his sleeve. He must hand them over before Hitler’s agents get hold of them. After all, they are the key to world domination.
When Churchill’s agent veers off course, Edward gets the word to proceed to Route 66. They are treated to the isolated high plains of Texas and the weird rock formations of northern New Mexico around Albuquerque and the Painted Desert in northern Arizona. They also stop at numerous auto courts and diners along the way that add to the local color of that famous road.
Old Faithful Plot, the next in the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series, will soon be published by Cheops Books LLC.
