"A Chip in Time" Now a Hot Kindle Store Romantic Fantasy
Author JK Mikals' "A Chip in Time," has moved up to #24 in the Amazon Kindle Romantic Fantasy category, putting it high among the leaders in its genre.
"When I look back on the struggle of creating "A Chip in Time," I have to laugh! I'm so very grateful to my readers for their appreciation. It's a real honor to be in the top 25. I'm also thankful I was blessed with enough determination to ignore my pre-publication critics," said JK Mikals, author of 'A Chip in Time.' "The grumbles were about what I think makes the book so strong – it escapes from formulas, and it blithely crosses genres. Obviously there are quite a lot of readers who agree it was the best way to go, and to say I am elated is an understatement. This is the kind of vindication that makes me want to start typing!"

Reviewers have said 'A Chip in Time' is "Knockout entertainment. A book that establishes a career in one stroke." It "explores the profundities and absurdities of love, time, technology, and culture, but Mikals never pontificates, and she never loses the plot." Other comments include "this book is written for an adult, female audience. To my utter surprise, I found it a real page-turner. And I am male." "Mikals' approach to social satire is playful and amusing, and I found her brand names particularly funny." And "don't be surprised if you feel a tad giddy afterward."
About JK Mikals. Mikals first published at the age of 14, when her brother purloined a school assignment, sent it to the Readers Digest, and kept the resulting check. When Mikals learned of this some 30 years later, she told him he might as well keep the check. Currently exploring her mind and the tropics with her fierce, 6 inch, Aztec companion, Xochitl, Mikals is known primarily for vocabulary, an enlightened point of view and an unusual sense of humor.
