I’m so excited to announce that my novella, The Light in the Cave, is now available on Amazon here! It’s been a journey learning all about self-publishing, but I am glad I took the leap and will finally publish this novella!
Here is the description:
Karisa Meyers has just taken a position working in a cave as a government contractor in order to be closer to her boyfriend, Fox Greene, a Staff Sergeant in the Army. She’s a little worried she won’t be able to pass the tests and keep her job. Fortunately, Cole Brooks, her sexy trainer is there to help. However, soon she will uncover the secrets of the cave and need to battle a biobot vampire, a quantum computer, and her own growing feelings for Cole.
The Light in the Cave blends the genres of Paranormal Romance, Science Fiction, and Mystery while touching on metaphysical topics such as frequency, remote viewing, synchronicity, the power of the mind, and the gift of free will.
33% alien 33% vampire 33% quantum computer and 100% entertainment is found within this action-packed story!
This original novella was inspired from Tricia Sankey’s short story, The Reset, which received an Honorable Mention in the prestigious L.Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest.
From the Afterword of my novella:
A few people have asked me about the inspiration for the cave setting in my novella. There was a time I did work as a contractor for the government, redacting immigration records inside a cave in Missouri. No, I didn’t encounter any aliens or vampires (that I can speak of) but I did spend plenty of time daydreaming, (during my breaks, of course) and perhaps my frequency increased while I spent so much time underground. I did and still do notice 11:11 and 1:11 quite often, but I just consider it a fun synchronicity.
I also appreciate the synchronicity of my novella releasing for pre-order on 2/22/2022!

You’re welcome. Just as an aside – how come you don’t have the Like button on comments?
Kindness – Robert.
I have always seen the like button on my comments, maybe it is a temporary glitch, sorry for the late reply, I saw this comment in spam. WP can be odd!
I can see it now! 😃
“33% alien 33% vampire 33% quantum computer and 100% entertainment” – I honestly don’t know why it’s taken me so long to buy this book, Tricia, but I’ve gone and done it now. #rightupmystreet
Thanks, Robert, you made my day!! 🥳I really need to find a screenwriter to help me make this into a screenplay as I think it reads a bit like one as I’m heavy on the dialogue. Happy reading! 💓
Happy to make you happy, Tricia. 🐸
Good luck with the screenwriting. I trust you’ll let us know when the movie is due for release.
It would be soo cool!! 😄 But the novella is a great first step! 😁
True that. 🤓
Congratulations, Tricia. What a great accomplishment. Book writing and publishing is a difficult venture. 🙂
Thanks, Marsha! It’s been a dream to get something out there on Amazon, glad I finally found the time! 💓
It takes a lot of time and dedication. Good for you!
Congratulations! Sounds like a fascinating story
Thanks so much, Natasha! 💖
Congratulations, Tricia! I bought this a few months ago and its absolutely on my list to read soon! I will set some quality time aside for it and let you know once I do 🙂
Oh thanks! I have edited a little bit more, not sure in Kindle lets you update that version. Just a few tweaks! 💓
Mmmmm, interesting! I’ve no idea if it does. I hope there’s no major plot changes as I have the original version, lol! 😀
No plot changes, just a little more polish. Check this link out though and let me know if it works. I’ve never done it myself! https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=GBR7PXPE8JEJWM7U
Thanks for that, Tricia! I’ll give it a go later. I’m not able to get into my Kindle account on my computer just now, but I’ll reset passwords when I get a chance and sort it out. Then I’ll let you know if it worked.
Sounds good! Happy reading! 💖
Congratulations It’s so good to see all is working out for you~
Thanks, Larry! It’s nice to be on Amazon, finally. It’s been a bucket list thing! ♥️
Hi Tricia! Just wanted to let you know that I finally got round to reading your novel! I managed to read it these last few days during spare moments and it was very fitting as the wind was howling outside and the rain was never-ending 🙂 It was very entertaining and action-packed! I was like, just leave Karisa alone, you guys! As a protagonist, she gets manhandled A LOT. I really appreciated the fact that we saw each character’s point of view chapter by chapter as there were quite a few to follow. Great work! I really enjoyed it 🙂
Thanks so much, Sunra, I really appreciate the feedback, I had a lot of fun writing it and it makes me so happy to hear others enjoy reading it! ❤️❤️❤️
You’re welcome! 🙂
