New Contract - Unison

I just signed the contract for my upcoming time travel story, "Unison." It's part of the time travel pax at Amber Allure, though I'm not sure when it's coming out yet. Here's the blurb:

Freddie Valek is a dreamer. He dreams about the fantastic as a means to escape, about finding the perfect man, about anything his imagination can conjure. When he falls asleep after work one day and finds himself in pre-Civil War Louisiana, he can’t say that he’s surprised. The only part of the dream that shocks him is that it’s taken him ten years to have a dream about the history of his most prized possession—a water-logged portrait of a man named Ezekiel.

All he knows about Ezekiel is what the woman who gave it to him said. That Ezekiel was the son of a plantation owner and a slave. That nobody ever found out what happened to him. Freddie’s dream thrusts him into the parents’ lives and their demands that he’s been brought to them to bring back their runaway son, a mission he is more than happy to accept.

But the closer he gets to finding Ezekiel, the more convinced he is that none of it is actually a dream…
