Tabitha, a carefree artist, and Milt, a socially awkward scientist came together in Detours in Time to explore the future and in the process, found an enemy they didn’t know existed.  What will they do to stop an enemy they have not met yet?

See what happens next in the sequel, Undercurrents in Time.

Blurb:

Time travel took Tabitha and Milt to places they could never have imagined….
Now it seems the very things that cemented their bond will also drive a wedge between them emotionally. Travel to the future, discovery of a long-lost, troubled family member, and an unplanned baby all have taken a toll. Tabitha struggles to accept her new identity as a mother while remaining a strong, independent woman. She longs for a getaway, even a short one, but that getaway puts her on a collision course with danger.
Milt is busy trying to prevent a horrible future disaster at the hands of an enemy he has not yet met. While concerned, Milt doesn’t even suspect Tabitha’s plans, the very plans that will have her facing Milt’s nemesis.
Tabitha risks it all on a brief escape. How will she handle the unforeseen dangers she faces and make her way back home? How far will Tabitha and Milt go to prevent tragedy?

Friday Fictioneers. Phone Home!

PHOTO PROMPT © J Hardy Carroll

I’d have to get stuck here, wouldn’t I?  All this time travel technology and I end up in a place that has no cell phone towers.  Lost.

This looks like a greasy burger joint, not a place I’d frequent, even forty years ago.

Somehow I have to get some help.  How can I summon Rickman?

Aha!  A pay phone.  We used to use these.  Let’s see.  I lift this up,  Ouch!  That’s loud! Beep. Beep.

“The phone at this location is temporarily out of service,”  a curt voice announces through the speaker.

The cell phone sits in my pocket, useless.

Book blurb:

On a whim, feisty Tabitha takes a trip to the future with her trusted friend Milt, an awkward Science professor. Wonders and curiosities abound.  However, their fun journey soon leads to a challenging maze of danger and difficult decisions.  On an unplanned “detour,” the two set events into action that could save one life yet destroy another.  Can these friends of completely different mindsets agree on a course of action?  Detours in Time starts as a fantastic escape and grows to present many moral dilemmas that could either ruin the best friendship or bring two people closer together.

What reviewers are saying:

“My highest praise to Pamela Canepa, who just wrote this book in such a captivating way that the reader will not want to put it down until the very last page and even then the reader will be dying to reach for more.”

“I found it quite interesting and some of the ideas and characters brilliant and we’ll developed.”

“This is a great book and if you love time travel and romance, you will love this book!”

Detours in Time, Main Character Intro.

As part of my book launch for my first full-length novel, Detours in Time, I held a Facebook launch.  It lasted several hours, and I did have a few people who kept me company online for the event.  At any rate, one of the elements I loved the most was sharing my visual representations of the main, and side, characters in this sci-fi, time-travel novel.  So, I thought I’d share it with the WordPress community.  Side characters will be presented in a few days.  Today, I’ll share my main characters, Dr.  Milt Braddock and Tabitha Hansen.  I hope you enjoy!

From the top left, we have two representations of Dr. Milt(on) Braddock, a Science professor, because he is truly a mix of the two pictured men.  He has a lot of hair like young photographer, yet he is a little older, with the smile lines of the second guy, and yes, he wears spectacles when needed.  I guess the hair is what gives him a little bit of a sexy edge, despite being older and super-intelligent.  By the way, intelligence is quite sexy!

Quotes on Milt:

“Obviously, being the scientist made him an authority at times.  At other times, she could tell he was struggling to behave in socially appropriate ways.  It was actually quite endearing.”

“He was odd, quirky, and comfortable alone.”

“He let it down slowly and hesitantly, as if having been forced to choose between the bug and Pinky.  He was like a teenage boy when it came to bugs, worms, caterpillars.  Pinky hated bugs, but still found his excitement amusing.   He was truly a young soul in that fifty-year-old body, that honestly didn’t look fifty, anyhow.”

“While at times he felt she was wasting her time with him, he also felt incredibly lucky.”

Tabitha (Pinky) Hansen is the woman pictured above, a struggling artist who was hired to clean Dr. Milt Braddock’s office by his colleagues, years before the plot of this novel begins which is in 1997.  At the point of this novel, she works in an art gallery.  On her off-time, she is normally dressed in jeans, Doc Maartens, and a band t-shirt, with lots of hair.  She doesn’t wear much make-up except for special occasions.  She is a good bit younger than Milt, yet not as socially awkward.  She is quite independent due to having lost her parents when younger.  She is also just a little stubborn and not as open-minded as Milt.

Quotes on Pinky:  “She had a big voice for such a small girl, along with even bigger dreams, first, to become a dancer, and later, to break into the Art scene.”

“Anyone who knew Tabitha well never asked why, at thirty, she wasn’t married yet.  She was fiercely independent and moody.”

“She was the realist of the two of them.”

“Milt liked raising Pinky’s ire at times, just for fun.”

Milt and Pinky don’t agree on everything, but they make each other laugh and get along pretty well.  That’s probably helpful when you get into a sticky situation.

The bottom line is, when you are setting out on a time-travel journey, it is best to take a friend.  Be sure it’s someone you can trust and can stand being around for days…..

So you contrive a powerful piece of machinery that can take you to the past or the future.  Only, it in itself is not foolproof.  There are always bugs to be worked out…

Then, you contrive a list of rules for time-travel to avoid sticky situations and a possible paradox.  Except, your time-travel companion has a different moral compass than you.  Can you make her adhere to your made-up rules when they start to challenge her sense of ethics?  With two people of completely different mindsets, can a compromise be reached, or does one of them have to bend?

Read Detours in Time and its tale of time-travel and the messes we can make.  What the heck.  It’s summer!  Time for a journey….

I thank the two people who have reviewed my book this last week!  The review goal is truly an uphill climb, but they are coming in.   This is my first full-length novel, after all.

Detours in Time is 305 pages long, available in Kindle and paperback, or free to read on Kindle Unlimited.  Look it up at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0711ZW6XF and add it to your Kindle or bookshelf!
