…time after time… Authoress, K.J. Waters has another glorious book launch…

…it’s always a great delight to watch a fellow scribbler follow up a terrific novel with an equally compelling read… my great pal, Authoress, K.J. Waters has delivered Shattering Time in a continuation from her tremendously successful Stealing Time… but let her speak for herself…

KJ Waters on Time Travel

I’m so excited to be back in your blog Seumas. It is a delightful honor and I hope you find my post worthy of your wit and charm and exceptional blogging platform.

I wanted to share a little bit about my writing and celebrate my new release, Shattering Time, the second book in the Stealing Time Series. As a fellow writer I think you will understand the bliss of releasing a book you’ve spent a year or more writing and the immense sense of relief at the freedom to focus on something else for a while.

First, I would like to ask your readers an intriguing question. If you could go back in time where would you go? One of the beautiful things about being a writer is you can dive into this type of conjecture and explore in a deeper way what this would entail. Choose wisely, for my research has shown that perhaps the imaginings of being in that particular place may far exceed the reality of that visit.

The Stealing Time Series addresses this time travel question in depth. Of course, after I’ve made the book a page-turner and put my poor heroine, Ronnie Andrews, in such terrible trouble repeatedly, I would NOT choose these times and places to visit in reality. It has been a great adventure to do so as a writer though.

The areas I have chosen for Ronnie to explore were just the kernel of desire and intrigue that put me on the path of discovery. In Stealing Time, I chose 1752 London at a time where there was a literal shift in time from the Julian Calendar to the Gregorian Calendar. The English along with its colonies, lost 11 days that September. I couldn’t resist this gold mine of intrigue and mystery as a back drop for my debut novel.

In the next book, Shattering Time just released last week, Ronnie is taken to three different places and times. First, she is deposited on a beach in the Bahamas in 1952 with beautiful crystal clear waters and a handsome man to join the fun. Only problem is that they are shipwrecked and like the genie that grants your wishes there is a twist that ends up biting you in the…um, I don’t want to give away too much.

Her last destination in that book has always been intriguing to me – The Lost Colony of Roanoke Island. It is one of America’s first mysteries where we find English colonists attempting to create the first colony in the New World in 1588. To this day no one knows what happened to them. It was a challenge to come up with my own version but I hope you do check it out and see what happens to Ronnie in that special time and place.

I would like to invite you to a special sale on the first book in the series, Stealing Time, that is available as an eBook for only 99 cents until July 7 on Amazon here: http://geni.us/StealingTimeGuestBlog.

If you prefer paperbacks, I can offer you both books in the series for $25 plus shipping, that’s a savings of $5, click here: http://geni.us/webpromo. Please visit my website at kjwaters.com and join my newsletter.

KJ Waters Bio

KJ Waters is the Amazon best-selling author of the short-story called Blow and #1 best-seller Stealing Time. The second book in the series, Shattering Time, was just published on June 27, 2017 and the next day reached #6 on the UK Amazon site, and was #2 as a hot new release for one category, seating neatly after Michael Crichton’s Dragon Teeth.

In addition to her writing, she is the CEO of Blondie’s Custom Book Covers and the co-host of the popular podcast Blondie and the Brit.

She has a Master’s in Business and over 15 years of experience in the marketing field. Before quitting her job to raise a family and work on writing she was the Director of Marketing and communications for a national behavioral healthcare company.

Shattering Time Blurb:

The number one best-selling thriller Stealing Time continues its “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 Frances, 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 Frances 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.

…Oh, for Pod’s sake!… yeez wanna listen to this!…


…down the years there have been frequent raisings-of-assorted-eyebrows at my mangled diction of English… for a starter, coming from Dockside Govan in Glasgow gave me a definite leg-up in the incomprehensible vernacular stakes… when I eventually turned up in London as a Trainee Financial Master of the Universe, I was compelled to slow down my speech delivery, and asked to enunciate more clearly the Queen’s spoken English (coming from ‘Laahndeners’ in the capital, I found that a bit rich, frankly)… the tongue-twisting continued apace as different countries in the Far East and now in the Middle East found me contorting their local languages… comes now a new spin… my first ever sojourn into Podcasting… that’s stuff on the Internet, Mabel, where yeez have real-live conversation with people across the globe through the wonder of the web… my terrific pals, m’Lady, K.J.Waters and m’Lady, Suzanne Kelman, both currently living in ‘Merika, run their Blondie and the Brit podcasts from there… this ol’ Jurassic had the delight of being one of their victims… I mean, being one of their guests… the resultant recording is ‘clickable’ here, http://blondieandbrit.podbean.com/  and on iTunes here, https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/blondie-and-the-brit/id1042661151?mt=2 …this is where the sound of English I make departs once more from the accepted norm… in truth, the dulcet modulations from the tongues of the esteeemed ladies is mellifluous in the extreme, but with the vagaries of intercontinental elink transmissions, my voice delivery sounds like a Scottish chipmunk… pleasing, I’m sure to those aficionados of Disney cartoon classics… have a wee listen and see what yeez think… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

…laugh?… I nearly passed m’Blog ‘round… three ‘P’s in a Podcast…

…the current allegedly accepted wisdom for all writers these days, whether or not yeez are self-publishing or ‘publishing-housed’ is to be present on the SOSYAL NETWURKS… that translates into WURKING yer sox off to be ‘noticed’… to be ‘available’ to yer publics… to balance yer scribbling, yer Twitter-twaddlings, yer Facebook-facadings, yer Google-Gogglings, yer LinkedIn-loopings, yer Pocket-Participations, yer Pinterest-Pinnings… oh, and a bit of author-y stuff as well… and, on the outside chance yeez might have time left for family and friends (not bluudy likely) that would be helpful, too… but, thankfully, nowhere in the instructions does it indicate that yeez have to be proficient in any of them… just as well… ‘coz I’m the oldest self-professed computer thing-y Jurassic on the planet… if I switch the Mac on and it lights up, I do a lap of honour…


…consider this now, yesterday my wee grey cells were asked to boldly go where these wee grey cells had never gone before… to be a participant in a Podcast… let’s be clear on this… before yesterday, I thought a ‘Podcast’ was a list of the names of the whales that appeared in the Free Willy movie… along come the two main ‘P’s in the scheme… ‘P’ standing in their case for ‘Professionals’… the delightful m’Ladies and fellow quill-scrapers, K.J. Waters and Suzanne Kelmansuzanne


the two purveyors of the regular Podcast, dubbed ‘Blondie and the Brit’…the third ‘P’ was yours truly, in this case the ‘P’ standing for ‘Perhaps-yeez-have-the-wrong-guy-here’… ’twas to be an easy enuff undertaking, said K.J… piece of cake, said K.J... even a dumb Scotsman’ll manage it, said K.J… aye, right… first of all, we tried Skype, which three-year-old toddlers can understand… that didn’t wanna play… then we had a go via FaceTimeit promptly joined its pal, Skype on the idle pile… no worries… fresh from that success, we transferred to Google Chat… another dismal no-show… I’ve a feeling it might have been my aftershave… or sum’thing I said… or maybe I should pay my Internet bill… by this time we had a three-way intermittent voice link, me in Bahrain, Suzanne in Seattle, and K.J in Dirtville (her description, not mine!)… suffice to say, what was left of my wee grey cells all got up and went out to lunch… sum’how or other, the magnificent duo in ‘Merika still captured the Podcast in all its marvellous sound-quality magnificence… I’m reliably informed that the FBI, NASA and the Society for the Protection of Internet Users will permit the broadcast to be aired in September… have a listen when it does come out… the squeaky voice at the end of the tannoy is Master Gallacher… I’m now open to guest spots on The Muppet Show... see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!
