A QUESTION OF TIME has been published!
My debut novel (well, long novella, actually) has been published by Champagne Books! It's a time travel SF romance called A QUESTION OF TIME. It's about an SF author who finds herself transported to her high school days in the late 1980s, where she realizes she has a chance to save a favorite teacher from death.

Here's the blurb:

Years later, successful author Celia Cavalotti is still mourning the death of her favorite teacher, who died in a car crash in 1989. But when a car accident of her own hurtles her back in time to the week of his death, she has a chance to change the future.

Finding herself in the 1980s is a shock to the extremely modern Celia-- but even more shocking is seeing her dead English teacher, Alan Forrest, alive and well before her very eyes. Alan is far more handsome than she remembers, and she can't resist the urge to flirt. After all, they have so much in common, like writing and a shared love of science fiction. Celia knows she's falling in love with him-- but can she use this opportunity to prevent his tragic death? What is happening to her? And why can't she seem to stay in one place and time?


I'm happy to say that A QUESTION OF TIME has been pretty well-reviewed, though not always. I've guest blogged about it here and more recently here.

If you'd like a chance to win a copy, there's an excerpt and giveaway here. Comment before December 24th and you get entered to win a copy of the book, in the format of your choice!

A QUESTION OF TIME can also be found on Goodreads.

You can buy A QUESTION OF TIME on Amazon, All Romance Ebooks, Book Strand, Kobo, and at Champagne Books.

If you really can't get enough of the fabulous 1980s, I even put together a playlist for the story on Youtube. (Of course I include the Depeche Mode song that the story was named after.) Enjoy!

Obviously have not read the book yet, but I so appreciate your honesty in posting both good and not so good reviews. Not many authors would do that. That decision alone is worth me buying a copy and reading. Heck, I liked the 80s too so...

Thanks, Johnny! I've learned that opinions are opinions, and even bad reviews will sell books, so there you go. Not everyone will like/dislike the same things.

Here's a few more reviews I forgot to include in the post-- this one is very positive, while this one is mostly positive, but with a few reservations.

I'm still doing a blog tour-- so if anyone would like to feature AQOT on their site, just drop me a note! Thanks for the votes, everyone. :)
