Book summary:
I have 15 minutes to save my mother’s life….15 minutes is all the Rewind Agency gives you in the past, but for Lara Crane it’s enough time to race through the city, find her mother, and stop her from being killed in a mugging that happened over ten years ago.But that’s not how it happened. The story she’s been told all her life is a lie and when Lara takes a bullet meant for her mother, her future changes forever.The love of her life acts like a stranger. Her simple life is replaced with a giant house, glamorous clothes and a new boyfriend. Except someone knows her secret. And he will try to stop her at every turn as she races against the clock to unravel a dangerous conspiracy.15 Minutes is an edgy high octane YA thriller that can be described as Back to the Future meets Inception where the people Lara trusts change in an instant. She is in a timeline she doesn't understand, and is about to make one fatal mistake as she faces an enemy so familiar, he’s family.
Guest post

Fast paced. High Energy.  Full on emotion assault.

That’s what I wanted 15 Minutes to be when I first started writing it and when I finished, I was not disappointed.
A roller coaster ride for the writer, main character, and hopefully readers, I wanted  people to feel what Lara feels as she struggles to discover the rules to the new world that is now her life.
There is no going back. There is no undoing the damage that she’s done.
What is it she’s done? She’s changed the past and in doing so, unleashed a can of worms that cannot be contained.
In 15 Minutes Lara Crane uses time travel to save her mother in a mugging gone wrong. In the distant future, time travel hasn’t just been discovered, it’s been regulated by the government.
Break the time travel laws and you face jail time, or worse, death.
Interacting with the past is a crime and as such you will appear as a hologram in the past, the people you see, will not notice you. You are an observer only and are not allowed to interfere with the course of history.
There are rumors that there are some who can break this rule and can in fact touch and talk with those in the past. But it is strictly forbidden to try. To do so might destroy not only time, but your mind.
The knowledge of several time lines at the same time, in the same brain, causes it to overload. What follows are painful headaches and nose bleeds that grow worse over time as memories assault you.  The brain will eventually hemorrhage and will bleed out. No time traveler has ever changed time and successfully lived to tell about it.
Lara Crane. Rebellious. Defiant. Doesn’t take no for an answer. She’s about to change the course of history.

What would you risk to save someone you love?

  1. Family is the best motivation to do something honourable and courageous. Seems like this time travel is intense and quite realistic. It shouldn't be easy. I don't know what I'd do to save a loved one, but anything to save them sounds good to me. Lovely post, thanks so much for sharing.)

  9. Oh my gosh, this sounds GREAT. I have to admit, I'm very intrigued, even though I'm not a huge fan of the cover (why would a girl wear a black dress if she's on a mission to save someone?). But great guest post too, Jill. :) You've definitely made me more interested in your book. I love time travel stories, even though some get really confusing.

    Thanks for sharing!
