Wow! You are so sweet, Tara! I love hosting you! (Tyrean)
Before I get to the reveal, I'd like to talk about quotes and signage. I love quotes and when I say something witty I like to write it down (ha, don't all writers do that??) Here's my latest:
"My writing is only limited by time (and my other job, gotta pay the bills)"
Another thing writers work on is their signage - what we write when signing books - it's not as easy as you think. Not spur of the moment witticisms, it takes work to come up with a good signing phrase! I usually stick with one standby and change it out for each new release, but I have backups in my notebook too. Here are a few...
Never stop having adventures!
Go beyond expectations!
Make the most of your journey!
Stand up for yourself!
Trust your gut!
Be a problem solver!
Tyrean: Love your signage, Tara! Mine are somewhat book specific:
Shine your light!
Spread your wings and fly!
Thanks again, Tyrean for giving me room at your place to share the new POP TRAVEL cover - it's eye-conic! And the re-release has a sneak peek at the first chapter of SIMULATION which comes out Sept 14th!

Re-released July 1, 2015
In 2080, technology has gone too far for private detective J. L. Cooper. He thinks he can avoid pop travel teleportation, until he stumbles onto a video of a pop traveler who turns to dust.
Sparking a series of murders, attempts on his life, and threats to his brother, Cooper wants to pass off the evidence but knows he’s being watched and can’t trust anyone. And who would believe him?
With help from the neurotic genius “Creator” of pop travel and a beautiful Southern charmer, Cooper must expose the deadly glitch and shut it down or die trying. No problem.
Tara Tyler has had a hand at everything from waitressing to rocket engineering. After living up and down the Eastern US, she now writes and teaches math in Ohio with her three active boys and Coach Husband. Currently, she has two series, The Cooper Chronicles (techno-thriller detective capers) and Beast World (MG fantasy) She's an adventure writer who believes every good story should have a moral, and a few laughs!
