TOMORROW’S FLIGHT by M.E. Ellington & Steven Stiefel

The authors deftly develop the diverse plane castaways and the badly conflicted and tainted mix of scientists/academics and air-crash investigators at the ancient (or not-so-ancient) accident site.”
— Kirkus
UNITED STATES, April 11, 2022 / -- The two authors live 6,000 miles apart. Despite the distance, they were able to successfully collaborate to complete their best-selling novel while also forming a production company to promote TOMORROW’S FLIGHT and other projects to the screen.

That’s the backstory for the time-travel thriller TOMORROW’S FLIGHT, written by M.E. Ellington, who lives in Northeast England, and Steven Stiefel, a Los Angeles resident.

TOMORROW’S FLIGHT has found success in both sales and from reviewers:

* It was a #1 bestseller on Amazon, where it continues to garner strong reviews from readers, reaching #1 in Germany, France, U.K., U.S., Australia, and Canada in the time-travel category.
* The manuscript placed in the top 10 in Book Pipeline’s manuscript-to-film/TV adaptation competition.
* Kirkus Reviews gave the novel a “recommended” rating, publishing it in both their print and on-line magazine.
* The novel is currently the #3-ranked Sci-fi book of 2022 on Coverfly’s THE RED LIST.

The two authors formed a company, MESS Publishing, for this work and other titles. In addition, they formed a production company—MESS Flicks—for their joint TV and film projects in anticipation of promoting their novel as a limited TV series. MESS is not only the authors’ initials but, perhaps, their collaborative style.

Along with writing a pilot episode of TOMORROW’S FLIGHT as a limited series for TV, they have written the award-winning science-fiction series THE HARVESTING, and they are currently working on a feature about Edgar Allan Poe’s death and exhumation.

TOMORROW’S FLIGHT is a female-centric novel told in two time periods:

THE PRESENT: Paleontologists excavating the bones of a juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex unearth modern human skeletons and a piece from an aircraft’s tail, stripped of all identifying markings, buried in Cretaceous terrain. Scientists from both paleontology and the crash investigation realize that their rigid academic beliefs may be shattered by what else they will soon discover. Conflicting personal and professional agendas come into play as these scientists try to determine what happened more than 65 million years in the past.

THE PAST: Several people board an airplane in Portland, OR, headed to Atlanta. When the plane encounters unusual turbulence, the competent pilot must land the aircraft without instruments, running out of fuel, in an unfamiliar world. The crew and passengers slowly come to realize they have landed in the distant past. As the survivors explore their new world, expecting to be rescued, they must fight against Tyrannosaurus rexes and other threats from this previous era.

As timelines collide, one woman’s battle for survival becomes another woman’s fight for the truth.

Kirkus calls the book “a sharp and gripping SF/prehistoric time-travel thriller…The authors deftly develop the diverse plane castaways and the badly conflicted and semi-tainted mix of scientists/academics and air-crash investigators at the ancient (or not-so-ancient) accident site.”

Says Laura Sarjeant, writer and editor,, “You’re quickly pulled into the story, transported, as if you were there walking alongside the characters both past and present, feeling the emotions of all the characters including empathy for a dinosaur (yes, you read that right!).”

“The ending of the book is one of the best I’ve read, allowing characters and time to evolve in ways not expected and letting the characters’ strengths and deceptions to play out,” says Susan Weintrob, writer and editor,

The book is available on Amazon and other popular retail outlets where books are sold. A new audiobook version is available this month.
