Hi there everyone, Paul here today. It feels like a long time since I’ve participated in a giveaway hop. That’s probably in part because Kathy took a break and I have been busy, busy, busy. But, here we are kicking off the Dystopian Giveaway Hop! I’d like to give a special thanks to to April at My Shelf Confessions and to Kathy at I Am A Reader Not A Writer for hosting.
I don’t normally read a lot of dystopian books, but I did recently. A Ripple In Time by my friend and fellow author Julia Hughes is perfect for this hop. What is dystopia? Here is what Wikipedia has to say about it: A dystopia is a community or society, usually fictional, that is in some important way undesirable or frightening.
In A Ripple In Time Rhyllann and Wren head back in time to a world where World War I never ended. Women do not have equal rights and war still rages. It is indeed undesirable and frightening.
Now let’s take a look at what the Amazon blurb is for A Ripple In Time:
Celtic Cousin Wren makes a psychic connection with a girl emigrating to America in 1912. Through his eyes, she is able to foresee the fate of the ship taking her across the Atlantic.
Consequently, RMS Titanic steams safely into New York Harbour: an anomaly which creates devastation for future generations.
Twenty-first century Britain still has an Empire, and World War One continues to ravage Europe.
Wren must somehow turn back time, and repair history; even if it means sacrificing everything he loves.
“A Ripple in Time” is a time travel romantic adventure. Protagonist Wren Prenderson was nominated for “Best Hero” in the E-Festival of Words 2013 Awards Hall, and voted by readers into joint second place. A Ripple In Time has been newly re-edited for a smoother reading experience on your e book reading device. Available from all virtual bookstores, including: Nook Books, Amazon, WH Smith and Smashwords and in paperback from December 10.
Tune back in later in the week for my review. Now on to the giveaway. Author Julia Hughes has been kind enough to give away an e book copy of A Ripple In Time to a lucky winner. This giveaway is open internationally. Be sure to click on all the other great blogs in the linky below the giveaway to “hop” on over for more great dystopian books and giveaway!
