Without further ado, I give you the epic cover of the soon to be released (soon, as in on 11/12/13) book by PK Hrezo.



If you don't know PK, you damn well should. She's extremely talented, smart and fun. And I can prove it. First, look at the cover - so fun, right? It's got a epic, you're going on an adventure feel to it. And here's a little about the book to whet your appetite:

Amazing concept, isn't it? I mean, who wouldn't want to go back in time to see a specific event, be a witness to history?

Um. Me.

So when I signed up for this blogfest, I thought I'd have trouble narrowing it down to one place and time. And, being the total pantser I am, I figured I'd just come up with something last minute.

But at the last minute I realized that all the times and places I want to go back to are tinged with sadness. I want to see my grandmother again. I want to see my friend Jenny again (and I wrote about that here, last time I thought about time travel.) Because they've passed, they are truly irretrievable - except in my memory. So assuming Butterman's is very expensive (and I think they must be, because I've seen their business cards and they are pretty fancy.) I couldn't go back in time to, say, be a flapper (GREAT GATSBY, THE DIVINERS) or late 19th, early 20th century New York (THE ALIENIST, TIME AND AGAIN - which is about time travel BTW.) though those would be my first picks, because I'd be too tempted to see some very missed loved ones again.

Anyway I've got a severe weakness for nostalgia, so it's probably a good thing that Butterman's fees are too dear for me. I will stick to the time machines I have at my fingertips - my stacks of books.

Where would YOU go if you could travel in time?

This is a blog hop, so please visit others on the hop!

  1. Hi, Alex. There are a few loved ones I'd like to be able to see again. I'm participating in the blogfest/cover reveal, so I shared my trip destination on my blog. CONGRATS to Pk and her book cover reveal!

  2. Very contemplative. I'm sorry for your losses.
    I picked a favorite period in history, but now I'm thinking flappers, too. If there's a time travel agency, then I'm just pretending I'm rich enough to take several trips!

  3. It's always a thought, tho, isn't it? When the topic of time travel emerges. To go back and save someone we've lost. I actually plan on exploring that in a later volume. But cheating death and time always has repercussions. But the idea of seeing those loved ones again--alive. *sigh* It's so bittersweet.

    Thank you so much for participating, Alex!! So glad you did! :)

    1. I figured! But that makes it so much more tantalizing, doesn't it? When it's expensive you want it more and you're willing to sacrifice more...Can't wait to read!

  5. Seeing our loved ones again would be bittersweet. My trip would occur after my grandmother's passing, but I would love to meet her as she died when I was two.

    1. that would be lovely, wouldn't it? Sometimes I think I tell stories with bits and pieces of my own memories and feelings because I'm trying to connect to people who are important to me - those that are here and those that have passed.

  6. That's a nice idea. But, I agree with Chrys, bittersweet.

  7. I'd totally be a flapper if I could go back!

    Well, my time travel plans are to see Pink Floyd in concert. I just want to have some innocent fun.

    1. You know, now that you say that, I think I'd go back to 1994 London and see Jeff Buckley in concert. I was there and it was my birthday and I contemplated seeing him - but I was skint and figured I'd have time to see him in the future. He died a few years later of course. Just goes to show that you need to do what you want now, not wait. :)

  8. Oh, the 1920's is such a GREAT era.... Life was sweet before the depression....

    I went a bit further back to 1890's Paris... the impressionistic movement...

  9. Hi! Nice to meet you and your blog. Yes, PK's cover is awesome! Interesting time travel idea (LOL on pantsing it). I didn't say that part on my blog 'cuz I didn't know about it...can't really say I'd like to travel anywhere. Except maybe when I was 12 and didn't get outside in time to see the Northern Lights in Alaska when I lived there. I'd like to redo that!!
