Julia Hughes - writing thrilling adventures - time after time after time.
In between replacing the suspension on the Passat, adjusting the brake calipers on the Mazda, and redecorating, we've been getting ready to tour with The Celtic Cousins. Thankfully, the last task is nothing but fun! We've made contact with friends old and new, and there's an all star list of host sites who have invited us over to their place. The tour begins on October 1, and will kick off at Words Unlimited. There are still a couple of slots waiting on confirmation, and there's still room to add your site if you fancy hosting a great giveaway.
Here's the media package you could be hosting!
A Ripple in Time: Synopsis
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.
From the author, Julia Hughes:
An iconic image of the last century, the Titanic represents hope, ambition and tragedy. It also marks the beginning of the end of an era. However, "A Ripple in Time" isn't all about the Titanic. It's about making unbearable decisions, taking chances and allowing faith, and love to grow.

"Indiana Jones meets the Da Vinci Code" – as one reviewer has commented!
Wren's discovered an ancient diary; he's convinced that it's the key to a legendary treasure trove. All he has to do is persuade cousin Rhyllann that this isn't a geeky flight of fantasy, escape the protection of DI Crombie of the Metropolitan Police and outwit a sinister cult known as "The Brotherhood". What can go wrong? …
“But the treasure is guarded. He who wishes to enter the secret chamber must first ensure he knows of the Celtic rites and mysteries. No other hand is permitted to touch Caliburn, sacred sword of the Celtic Nations.” From the diary of Joan, Princess of Wales by marriage; natural daughter of King John of England (year of our lord 1216).
