Back to the Future Giveaway Hop

Back to the Future is my absolute favorite movie. In high school, I had a shrine in my room dedicated to anything BTTF I could find. A great inspiration for me as an author was the character of George McFly, an aspiring sci-fi writer/nerd who always shied away from confrontation and adversity until his son traveled back in time and helped him overcome that. Possibly my favorite scene in the novel is when George McFly (the George of 1985 after being visited by his son) receives a box of books–his first novel. As he hands a copy to his son, he reminds us all that “you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.” I’ve wanted to be an author since I can remember, and I’ve been watching Back to the Future since I can remember. That quote and scene has always stuck with me, and when I received my first box of novels last year, I felt like George myself.

In this time-travel novella incorporating sweet romance and science fiction, Anna, a young graduate student, has found her intellectual soul mate. She and Dr. Thomas Wellesley, forty years her senior, have been working on sensitive research involving time travel. She respects the man: he is married to his work and just as passionate about science as she is. He is her favorite part of the day and she'll stop at nothing to help their research.  When a rival professor threatens their research and their safety, Dr. Wellesley does everything in his power to protect Anna from harm. But in his effort to protect her, he inadvertently sends her back in time. Forty years back in time, to be exact—to a time when a young student named Tommy Wellesley is just embarking on his first degree in physics. And it’ll be up to young Tommy to see Anna safely back to her own time. If he can bear to lose her.   This edition also includes two short time travel stories. “Suicide Watch” explores the more dangerous ramifications of time travel. After an unfortunate fight with the love of his life, Matthew Mitchell discovers a time machine. Tempted to win back his girlfriend, Matt takes the machine for a spin, only to find out that time travel is much more complicated than he expected, and the results are catastrophic. “Toward Every Future’s Past” is flavored with sci-fi and fantasy and examines the cyclical nature of time and man’s difficulty in comprehending it.

For this blog hop, I’m giving away a copy of my novella For Whom My Heart Beats Eternal. It’s the story of a college student who travels back in time to the 1970s and falls in love with her professor, someone who in her own time is close to retirement. When she returns, she finds the world is futuristic compared to what she remembers… and that isn’t the only thing that’s changed… The novella includes two other time travel shorts, one about a man’s personal struggle with a time machine and his own stubborn will, and the other about a group of people tasked–for the umpteenth time–with saving humanity.
