The Incarnations of Joe by Timothy Weatherall | Spotlight & Giveaway

The Incarnations of Joe

Genre: Sci-Fi, Fantasy

Death has come to the woods surrounding an isolated northern mining town. It is the night of Christmas 1960, and what Joe Magister is about to encounter on the road will leave him forever changed and bring him face to face with his true heritage.

What he will come to learn is that no truth is as simple as what is taught in church. Angels and demons; Heaven and Hell; good versus evil—none of it is as it seems.

And when a marriage of old souls is put asunder there are consequences that must be paid.


That night Father Sinclair and his chosen few who controlled all things were worshiped as though they were Gods themselves. It was a night when false hope was served to men who had little left to lose and who might seek a trial of life in a different place. I had spent time in the mines alongside these men.

Broken worn-down men whose bodies  were twisted and bent by arthritis brought on by the years they had spent in the cold damp depths below the earth.Will felt it was necessary for me to learn to work and understand the mines and the men I would one day lead. I would have felt he wished me to die in those mines if he had a son of his own, but he had only me. The inability of Will and my mother to conceive a child was something that was often raised, even in my presence, when Will was drunk and filled with self-pity.

As the evening passed, the alcohol mixed with each person’s true nature taking away what walls they had built before they came to this place. Hate, anger, and deceit took hold of the night, leaving dreams, love, and compassion lost within the minds of most people.

About the author

Born in Collingwood Ontario, Timothy Weatherall spent most of his childhood on his family's farm in Simcoe County. Living the country life played a huge role for his love of nature, animals and family. Timothy grew up enjoying the company of his many pets, and using his own imagination more so than traditional youth activities. 

Now a married father of two, family life and being a strong role model for his boys is one of the most motivating factors in his life.

A passionate soccer player, and action sports athlete, healthy active living has always fueled his spirit and his imagination. While stories and dreams have always filled his head, his struggles to master written English had always kept him from documenting his dreams, until now. The Incarnations of Joe has changed all of that, as Timothy has finally decided to push aside his struggles and charge forward with his dreams.

Genre: Urban fantasy


Ellie and Savannah Senka, fourteen year old twins, ran away from their unhappy homes, thinking they'd return after a brief adventure. Together, they journey to another world.

The new world is full of magic, but though it was once beautiful, it is damaged, unbalanced, and dangerous after a terrible storm.

Ellie and Savannah may be the only ones with the power to restore the world to its original state, for the magic of twins is rare and powerful. The girls are welcomed into a grand mansion, the safest place in the aftermath of the storm. There, they learn who they are, and what they have to do. To restore the world, they must travel through the mansion to the center of magic and reset the balance. They discover their own magical abilities, find joy and friendship in the mansion's family, and face the dangers of the storm's left-behind magic.

The journey to the center of magic is full of twists and turns, magic and excitement. Ellie and Savannah support each other to overcome obstacles along the way, knowing the whole world is depending on them.
