SWITCHING blog tour

SwitchingSWITCHING is finally going on a blog tour! I guess it makes sense that a time travel novel would have a completely different schedule than the rest of my books. :) Here are the dates:

June 4: Unconventional Book Views
June 7: Inside BJs Head
DATE MOVED: Book Briefs
June 18: Chapter by Chapter
June 21: My Seryniti
June 24: Bookmark Your Thoughts

The June 18 spot will feature an interview with me, with some cool tidbits about where the idea for Switching came from. Follow along to find out!

Switching Review from Library of Clean Reads

Image: Library of Clean ReadsAnother positive review for SWITCHING is in!

(And I’m tempted to count this as two, as both Laura and her daughter reviewed it, LOL.) Seriously though – it’s always uplifting to a YA writer when they get great comments from teens. So thanks to both Laura Fabiana and her daughter for this one!

SWITCHING review on Library of Clean Reads

“This is the second book I read by Jody Kihara that I absolutely love. Her first book The Frankincense Trail blew me away with its exotic historical setting and Switching is contemporary time travel with a twist. Both unique settings. I began to read this book with my daughter, but soon afterwards she picked it up without me and read it non-stop over a weekend. “Mom, I can’t put this book down!” was her comment to me when I called her to dinner several times to no avail. I have never seen her so engrossed in a YA book before…”  Read the full review ????? ???? ?????????? ????. ????? ?????????? ??????? ????????? ??????, ?????????????? ?? ??????? ? ???????, ????? ??? ????? ??????? ?????????? ?? ??????? ??????????. ????? ? ?????? ? ?????????????? ????? ??? ???????? ??????. ?? ????? ????? ?? ??????? ??????? ? ?????????????? ????? ??? ???????? ??????. ?? ????? ????? ?????? ?????? ?????? ?????? ????????? ???????? . http://igrovye-avtomaty-igrat.ru/ ???????? ????? ?????? ? ?????????? ???????? ? ???????, ????? ??? ????? ??????? ?????????? ?? ????????. ??? ????????? ????? ????????????? ??????? ? ????????? ?????????? ???????, ?????? ? ???????????, ???????????? ??????????. ????? ???? ?????????? ????. ????? ?????????? ??????? ????????? ??????, ?????????????? ?? ??????????? ????? ?????? ?????? ?????? ?????? ????????? ???????? ? ??????????????. .

SwitchingReview:
I was really excited when Jody Kihara, the author of The Frankincense Trail, asked me to review her latest book Switching because her last book was a favorite of mine last year.

One of the things I enjoyed most while reading Switching would have to be the ‘why’ when it came to how Terri and a couple other characters were switching. I found the reason, metal implants and electromagnetism, to be one of the coolest explanations for how a character could bounce around from one decade to the next. What made the time travelling theory in Switching even cooler was that the different metals used had different effects on the person travelling.

While the time travel theory was interesting, one of the best parts of this book is the author’s writing…

Every week or two, Terry wakes up in a different time. She’s been ‘switching’ ? that’s her word for time traveling ? for the past eight months, and she has no recollection of her life before then. She doesn’t know who she is, why she’s time traveling, how to get home, or even when home is.

Then Terry meets some fellow travelers and finds out she’s not alone… and that there might be a way to get home. But the others have their own agendas, and Terry needs to be careful where she places her trust. She finds herself falling for one traveler, but a terrible secret bars his way home. Another traveler is growing desperate, and he doesn’t care who he uses in his attempt to get home… even if it puts them all in danger. Can Terry find a way home before he tries something dangerous? Or will he prevent her from getting home at all?
