Time WARped Novel & Traveling Rocks

Guess what swag I’m bringing to BOOK LOVERS CON next week?

If you guessed the typical pens, bookmarks, and coasters you would be correct. But wait, there’s more!

I’m bringing traveling rocks hand-painted by yours truly. Okay, so, once those of you who know me stop laughing, because you know I’m the least crafty person on the planet, let me say that I really did paint these rocks myself.

To celebrate the release of Time WARped (A Preserver & Protector novel), the first book in my new time travel romance series, I have fourteen of these original painted rocks to hand out at the conference during the book signing on Saturday.

Here’s how it works:

Author Valerie J. Clarizio

Presents

Time WARped

and the Traveling Rocks

I invite you to stop by my book signing table and take one of these traveling rocks.  Keep it as a paperweight or hide it for someone else to find and enjoy (They in turn register and keep it or re-hide it.). Either way, take a selfie with it, with or without me in it, and register it at facebook.com/valerie.clarizio/ after you ‘like’ the page so that we can see where this rock traveled to and who it is keeping company with.  If you’d like, feel free to paint your own Time WARped traveling rock, whether you are at the Book Lovers Con conference or not, and register it on my FB page. I’d love to see what you come up with.

The rocks, just like the characters in Time WARped, inquiring minds want to know what they are up to.  Let’s have some fun with this! How far will these rocks travel and how quickly? Let’s make this thing go viral!

Here’s a peek at my handiwork.

When Veteran Blake Cornelis visits his great grandfather’s Civil War grave, he is whisked back in time to Gettysburg, where his ancestor was a hero. His mission—to preserve his family’s decorated military record, because his cousin, Evan, is determined to steal the Cornelius heroism for his own family’s ancestry. Fighting Evan is demanding and requires unremitting vigilance. Fortunately, the gods have sent Blake an exquisite guardian angel to help him.

Ariel, a time travel Protector, is tasked on this journey with safeguarding Blake, and she vows to do that—at any cost. But the attractive hero from Wisconsin is unlike others she’s been assigned to protect. The intense attraction between them casts them into deadly peril on the battlefield.

Blake and Ariel are sent into other wartimes, and as secrets unfold they realize they must sacrifice all to conquer his evil cousin, for the Cornelis honor is not all that is at stake. The fate of the American people lies in their hands. But Evan is a formidable foe, determined to achieve his mission, and since he has nothing to lose, he’ll do whatever it takes to succeed—no matter the cost.

Coming Soon – Time WARped (A Preserver & Protector Novel)

Admittedly, I’m getting pretty excited about the upcoming release of Time WARped. It’s also a bit nerve-racking because time travel is a new adventure for me. Release day, March 17th, can’t get here soon enough. My PR team is working hard to get the word out. My review team is reading and some have already provided advance praise for the book which you can find below.

Darla said:

Well-written with characters you’ll love to get know, this book is a wonderful read. It’s intriguing and keeps you engaged through to the end. I was drawn into the story as I went through everything with Blake and Ariel. The time-travel aspect is thrilling keeping you aware of the butterfly effect where one little change can affect everything for years to come. That’s where the Preservers come into play. I enjoyed this book immensely and am really hoping there’s another book to come. I highly recommend Time WARped. 

Helen said:

Time travel, the butterfly effect, protectors and preservers of history as it was originally played out–or was it? If you’re a fan of the Back to the Future film trilogy, you’ll appreciate how this book takes a mind-bending dive into pivotal American war events as they pertain to one particular family tree and its valorous and not-so-valorous branches when dark forces conspire to change the past and influence the future.

Engaging, mature characters in a fast-paced, steamy love affair across time and place add to a story celebrating America’s veterans. Memorial Day anchors the events and anchors Blake and his family line. I applaud the author for her research into history and the mind-boggling mechanics of time travel. This is clearly the start of a series because without preservers and protectors, history is always in danger of being altered. An enjoyable and thought-provoking read. I received an ARC from the author, but this is my honest opinion.

Big Announcement!

Guess who is trying something new. Me, that’s who.

I’m straying from romantic suspense and contemporary romance and diving head-first into the spectacular world of time travel.  For those of you who really know me, I mean, REALLY know me, you know I don’t stray from the norm very much. First, I’m a Virgo. By nature, Virgos are pretty regimented. Second, I’m a finance director/accountant by day, again a part of my life that keeps me on a disciplined, logical, ordinary path. Yet, here I am, announcing to you that I’m dabbling in the world of time travel.

Time travel – The concept of traveling through time to the past or future. There’s no real supporting logic, yet I’m doing it. Or, should I say Blake and Ariel are doing it. We’ll get into this more in a minute but before that I want to show you the cover. You are the first to see it!

Show of hands…who wants to take this new and exciting trip with me? Get that hand up there! I promise you a great ride into an uncharted world of time travel preservers and protectors, and you’ll get little snippets of romance and history along the way.  You don’t even have to pack a bag for this journey. I’ll take you out of this world and back before you know it.

What’s involved with taking this journey and where do I sign up?

Here’s the what, and where. I’m looking for reviewers for this new adventure. If you like time travel romance with historical elements I invite you to join my review team.  If you are interested please email me at valclarizio@yahoo.com. In your email, let me know the following:

  • Have you reviewed and posted reviews before?
  • What outlets do you post your reviews on (Amazon, ibooks, Goodreads, etc.)
  • Can you read this ARC (electronic) by the middle of March and post a review on or within a couple of days after the official release of the book?
  • Do you promise not to share the electronic ARC with anyone else?

The time travel book I plan to release is entitled Time WARped.  The release is scheduled for the middle of March of 2020.

Here’s a bit about the book.
