GENRE: Time Travel Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Jeff Blue - the victim of a time-travel conspiracy - wakes up trapped in the year 2095. The only familiar face is J0, a robotic copy of the wife he left behind in 1981. But can she be trusted? J0 could be the only key to unlock Jeff's journey home, but it will require her to do something against her programming , something human.

During Jeff's perilous journey through the future, he will have to discover the truth about J0's origins, and solve the mystery behind how he wound up in 2095, in order to uncover the reality of his own destiny.

Armed with a one-way ticket to the moon, Jeff must race against the clock to seize what might be his last chance to return home to his time. A time without hover cars, Justice Computers, or TeleSkins - a time over 100 years ago.

EXCERPTS (Exclusive Excerpt):

When we turned down West Winter Street from Laredo Avenue, I was anxious since I knew we were going to have to drive past my old house. I didn’t want to show the same emotions I had earlier. The sun was setting by that point, and the sky was a pretty shade of pink and orange.

“Look at that sunset,” J0 said. “You don’t see that too often in the winter.”

Winter. Right. I had to remind myself it is the end of February here in 2095, not the end of June like in 1981. “Yeah. It rained so hard today. How often does it rain instead of snow this time of year?”

“It has been unseasonably warm the last few weeks,” she replied.

We drove past 242 West Winter Street. I tried to catch a fleeting glimpse of the house again out of the corner of my eye, even though I was conscious that J0 was somehow detecting any attention I paid to the property. Convinced that she was able to read my mind, I forced my eyes to turn back to the road in front of us.

We continued down West Winter Street for a few more moments, and J0 slowed the hover car. We descended to park it in front of house 929. I got out first and noticed the white mailbox on the small strip of plastic grass in between the curb and the sidewalk. Just as J0 had reported, Kaminski was stenciled in black calligraphy on the side.

“Do you want to look around outside?” J0 asked. “Should we knock? It looks like they’re home.”

She motioned to the driveway. It was crowded with parked hover cars.

“It looks like they’re having a party. I wouldn’t want to disturb them. Maybe we should go.”

This felt like a bad idea already. I stepped over a row of plastic flowers that lined the walkway as J0 walked around the front of the hover car and stood on the sidewalk. I had the sudden urge to look into one of the house’s windows. I wanted to catch a glimpse of the family who had bought this house from my great-great-grandson before he built J0 and bounced me into 2095. I placed my hands on a windowsill that led into a brightly lit room inside and peered in.

“What are you doing?” J0 yelled, startling me. “You look like a prowler! Either take a look from a safe distance or ring the bell. They’ll remember you. It’s only been a few years.”

    1. I learned a lot about the actual writing process. Even though is my 3rd novel, this was the one where I truly learned about flow and a natural beat to the story, pacing, and suspense.
