I worked hard, everything I planned almost within my grasp, and then one flicker in time, mere seconds, and it’s all gone. Now I’m starting at zero, stuck in a place called the outpost, which is neither here nor there but some limbo land for those who haven’t transitioned.

I’m sleeping in a broom closet, choking on fumes, while everyone declares me useless. Kaden, the guy that runs this place, keeps telling me there’s nothing I can do to go back. That once the change is set in motion, it’s impossible to reverse.

Every day, each step, takes me farther away from where I want to be and closer to Kaden and a mysterious land of darkness. The only way out of this mess is forward, away from the life I built, and the people I love…

Billie is a planner and a hard worker. Even if she doesn’t lead the most glamourous life; it’s still her life. Her favorite person in her family is her Gram who seems to only like Billie but at least someone likes her. Her Gram tells her some very strange things and in a short period, she finds herself stuck in a place called the outpost, which seems to be some kind of holding station for people who haven’t transitioned. All Billie wants to do is return to her old life, but according to Kaden, the man in charge, it’s not possible. No matter how infuriating Kaden is or how many times he tells her that she can’t go back she is determined to find a way.

The more time she spends in this strange new world, the more she seems to accept that maybe she is stuck. No one will explain how the majority of things work in this new place, but she’s determined to find someone, anyone who will explain and help her with the mess her life has become.

The new series by Augustine keeps you thinking and trying to figure out what is going on. More questions than answers plague not only Billie but the reader as the story unfolds.

Donna Augustine was an odd child, had a brief moment of conformity in early adulthood and then decided to embrace her craziness as the years rolled by. It's her inner crazy that she credits with coming up with the ideas for her books. One part hypochondriac, a few dashes of paranoia, topped with a sliver of uptight and delivered with a relaxed flair, she kicked the proverbial box down the yellow brick road a couple years ago to embrace her true self.

She can be reached by a carrier pigeon, set free in a south by north direction, where she resides in Neverland with her two Siberian cats. Cats who, by the way, aren't as hypoallergenic as she believed they'd be.

For the conventional minded, and those of you without a pigeon on hand, she can be reached at She responds to most emails within three dusk periods.

P.S. For those of you looking for the discarded box, it was sitting beside the road for a while but has since disappeared completely.
