Blurb for Shattering Time:


The number one best-selling thriller Stealing Time continues it’s “breathtakingly original” journey.

Ronnie Andrews returns from eighteenth-century London shell-shocked from her first terrifying time travel encounter. Her boyfriend, Jeffrey Brennan, casts doubt on her sanity leaving Ronnie wondering if she went back in time or is having a mental breakdown.

To add to the tension, Hurricane Francis, a storm the size of Texas, is barreling towards Florida and her fears of a repeat time travel experience mount. Ronnie’s best friend Steph, along with her friend Nick and Steph’s younger brother Ian, shield Ronnie from the dangers of Francis but cannot save her from traveling back in time. Unfortunately, their meddling brings Ronnie to the brink of destruction as they are caught in the throes of the hurricane’s wrath.

Once again, Ronnie is transported to dangerous places and plagued with desperate situations, while experiencing perilous cultures including one of America’s first mysteries -- the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island.


A stunning conclusion brings Ronnie face to face with a dangerous ally who may hold the key to her past while offering salvation for her future.

  27. KJ, re your cover options: I like the extra lightning around the title, electrifying the words a bit; but the big difference, I believe, is that the shorter arrow is too easily mistaken for a hand on the timepiece face while the long arrow is more clearly 3D and piercing the timepiece.

    Thanks for a fun blog visit, a good way to discover your work. I traveled through time a few days to look back and confirm that you will, indeed, have a very successful blog tour!

  41. Great post! I'm looking forward to reading your work and have added 'Stealing Time' to my TBR list! I voted for #1 in the 'Shattering Time' cover vote. Although having witnessed 3 cyclones in my life, my recollection of the color of the sky just before the storm made landfall was always of an eerie almost iridescent green tinge to the sky. 🐨

  50. I couldn't load your page in the last 2 days. I finally got on! I've always loved your covers as I've shared them on Twitter. Time and clocks are great symbols for mystery and suspense. The first cover of the two choices above has a deeper color for the clock and more lightning strikes. I like that one best.
