Vote for your choice of Fast Backward Cover


In the past I’ve been allowed some input on my covers, but this is a new and exciting experience. READERS get to have a say. Because I’m a reader as well as a writer, I’ve done a lot of cover critiquing, both of my books and those I’ve chosen (or not chosen) to read. So if you’ve ever looked at a cover and said to yourself (or some other art appreciator), I don’t know about that, honey, or That cover’s got nothin’ to do with the story, or I coulda done better, here’s your opportunity! Take a look at the synopsis, and think World War II, and time travel, and alternate history, and concentration camps, and above all, WHAT IF???


In July of 1945, fifteen-year-old Bobby Hastings witnesses an atomic explosion near a top secret New Mexico Army base. Terrified, he soon heads off on his bike for home, only to encounter something that rivals the blast for drama. A girl his age stands naked at the side of the lonely desert road: underweight, unwell, and speaking with a German accent.

In the coming days, she unveils an impossible story about time travel and a heartbreaking outcome of the war. She begs people to believe her warning and prevent the awful future she claims to know too well. But is she lying, disturbed, or telling the truth? And even if they do believe her, and the story is true, the biggest question remains: can history be undone?
