Book Description

Imagine you live in a world torn by war and poverty. A world fueled by hate and despair. Then imagine one day you find a portal to a parallel universe, one where your world could be filled with riches, love and safety. What would you do to make it yours? More importantly, what wouldn't you do to make it yours?

Dual is the story of Betty, a woman who in one short day, will have to answer these questions.

Dual is a short story and runs 5,787 words.

5.0 out of 5 stars This story is why I like to read unknwon authors April 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this story. The ending thoroughly surprised me. Great job. I loved the idea of the parallel universes. I can seen a whole series of novels based on this one short story. I do not want to say too much for fear of ruining the story. Just read this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting premise well executed June 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
JC Miller's Dual got me from the first paragraph, opening with a woman stealing boots from a corpse. From there, we learn a bit about both the world Betty inhabits, the other worlds that may or may not exist elsewhere, and also a bit about Betty herself and her... interesting personality.

There's a few parts where the sentence structure is a little awkward, but otherwise the story flows well and is a very agreeable page turner.

Dual is a simple tale told well, and Betty's an interesting protagonist (especially by the end of part I!). The ending is solid, wrapping up the tale nicely but leaving plenty to the imagination. I quite enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Well-Crafted Gem of a Story September 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a truly delightful, clever and imaginative story this is, with just enough of the dark side to add some chills into the mix. It also has one of the best opening lines I've come across: "Betty looked down to her feet at the pumps she had stolen from a corpse." My only hope is that there will be plenty more like this coming from the author. Don't pass this one up - highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Innovative June 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
"Dual" - a story line that has not been done to death. This new author is loyal to the plot and the conclusion is elusive until the end. She referred to it as a 'short story.' I think it's much more than that and deserves to be ranked as a well done novella. Not sure why Miller chose to include the number of words used to tell this tale because it obviously has nothing to do with why you should buy the book or whether it's a good read - so don't let the minutiae distract you. My suggestion is that you purchase and read the book. If you like innovative science fiction, you will love "Dual," and if I were a betting person, I would wager that you would not be able put it down until you've read through to the last page. That's how good it is!

More About the Author

My name is Jeanne Miller and I'm a Pet Psychic Medium/Author living in Vermont.

Residing with me is my rescued Siamese cat, Simon Pasquale, and his pet mouse or mice of the day. Currently, three white mice rescued from the feeder bin. As the store employee said when she pulled them out of a huge tank: "You guys got lucky today."

My first book The Pet Psychic Diaries recounts readings from my first year as a working Pet Psychic.

Pet Chatter is a book of quotes from the pets I've spoken to over the past few years. I've separated their quotes into topics, and boy, did they have a lot to say.

The Red Balloon is a children's book written in verse. It is quite short and doesn't contain images. It would be perfect to be read to a very small child, but I'm told the adults like it too.

Dual is a sci-fi dystopian short story about a parallel universe, a doppleganger and treachery. My first foray into darkness.
