I have had the fortune of reading Pop Travel and can tell you all that is an exciting sci fi noir featuring a cat and mouse game between a hard-boiled detective and the government investigators who are trying to catch him. It's about TELEPORTATION for crying out loud, you can't get more exciting than that.
It is out July 7, 2013 by Curiosity Quills
This is what is exciting about being involved in the writing community. You get to be joyful when your critique partners books come out, and let me tell you, I am popping with excitement. (Though not like in the book!) Tara is a supportive, fun friend I am very happy to have met online and super happy her great book has come out.
For those of you wondering how to meet critique partners, there are lots of ways. The lovely girls at Falling for Fiction regularly do a CP match up, and CP Seek is another place you can meet people. In my case though, I simply offered to read it. I saw Tara talking about it on her blog, thought it sounded awesome, and offered. And she offered to read something of mine back. So there you go.
Okay onto the cover and then I'll tell you more about the book, and Tara!
Private Investigator J. L. Cooper always knew pop travel laser teleportation was too good to be true. Finding video proof of a disintegrating traveler is the stomach turning “I told you so.”
Cooper can’t broadcast the video on the nosy, government monitored Qnet, so he digs around, revealing more suspicious traveler disappearances, the death of his client, and threats to his political little brother, who is in jeopardy of turning to dust anyway for disregarding Cooper’s warnings not to pop. Cooper has to do everything himself.
To stop the disappearances and save his brother he must shut down the ruthless mega corp Pop Travel International (PTI). And that means convincing Hasan Rakhi, the celebrity Creator of pop travel, to publicly admit the deadly flaw. No problem. Under constant surveillance, Cooper will have to be unpredictable, facing his fear of popping to crash a party at Hasan’s well-fortified plantation compound. Yes, the laser fences are real. As long as he survives his next pop, Cooper won’t let anything distract him from getting the job done. Not the android security guards, who aren’t as bright as they look, or even Southern Comfort in a purple dress, Geri Harper (an undercover Agent). Nothing Coop can’t handle.
& Here's Tara:
Math teacher by day, sports mom by night,
