A Book A Day #Giveaway -- Shattering (Island) Time Book Tour -Stop 8 -- Florida

A Book A Day #Giveaway -- Stop 8 – Shattering (Island) Time -- Florida


Welcome to my Shattering (Island) Time book blog tour to celebrate the launch of my second book, Shattering Time. The story features Hurricane Francis as an intricate part of the plot. This book tour has meandered its way through the path of destruction left on its way to Florida where Shattering Time begins.



A Book A Day Contest
Shattering Time launches next week on June 27. I’ll be giving away a free eBook every day from now until the launch. To enter all you have to do it comment on my Facebook post here and I’ll pick a winner each day! I’ll even give away a paperback to 2 people who share the post on the day of launch.





Florida and Hurricane Frances
The excitement ramps up in Shattering Time on Sunday, August 29, 2004, at 1:00 am when the storm makes landfall. It was the size of Texas and a category 2 storm with 105 MPH winds. It made landfall near Sewall's Point, Florida.



Francis hit three weeks after Hurricane Charley, that storm is the driving force in my first novel in this series, Stealing Time. Citrus groves were a near total loss for part of the state after both storms ravished the trees causing over $2 billion in damage. 

Frances dropped over 13 inches of rain in parts of Florida and the wind caused damage to the Vehicle Assembly Building at the Kennedy Space Center, adding to the damage of Hurricane Charley totaling $100 million in 2004 dollars. Walt Disney World Closed on Sunday for only the third time in its history, the second time that month because of the previous hurricane.

Time Travel in a Hurricane

During this massive storm Ronnie Andrews, my main character, is sent back in time to 1588 Roanoke Island in North Carolina. For you history buffs, that is the first colony in America, also known as the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island.

Tensions were running high
with the Natives
The Governor was sent back to England for more supplies and reinforcements, as they were running out of food and tensions with the native population were mounting. When he returned there was no trace of the colonists, other than a carving in a tree, Croatoan.

Let me bring you to the moment where Ronnie encounters the Native American population and finds herself in a sticky situation with this exclusive excerpt.

Advanced Review

I just received my first review from an Advance Reader Copy reviewer. If you’d like an advanced copy please let me know. I’d really love an honest review on Amazon. Sent an email to kjwatersauthor@gmail.com with ARC Copy in the title.

After enjoying KJ Waters earlier novels I was eager to read Shattering Time. Especially to find out how Ronnie is rescued.
 I appreciated the  well written back story being incorporated, which adequately covered the past, and prepared me for the present.
 I loved to hate the dreadful Jeffrey. My heart went out to Ronnie, poor girl. Her life was not her own. 
Readers be warned of the occasional explicit language and sex scenes, if you are sensitive.
 I give Shattering Time five stars.

Thank you,

Shattering Time Blurb:
Number one best-selling thriller Stealing Time continues in this “breathtakingly original” journey where 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 metal 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. Her best friend Steph, along with 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.

Ronnie is transported to dangerous places and plagued with desperate situations, while experiencing fascinating 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 serving as the savior of her future.
