Cover Reveal and Bloghop for Butterman (Time) Travel, Inc

Today is the day to book a time trip with the Butterman Time Travel agency, courtesy of PK Hrezo. But before we get to that excitement, the big news to share is PK's cover for the Butterman (Time) Travel, Inc. book. Isn't it gorgeous?

Congratulations to PK! I just love this cover. I also love time travel stories, so this book definitely has my attention. Here is the info from PK herself:

Now for the blog hop. Where would I go if I could book a time trip with Butterman? I am cheating a little and giving the same answer I did for the Wormhole Day Hop back in March. I realized when thinking about PK's hop that my answer hasn't changed. This is what I wrote then:

I'd go back in time to 1930s Cincinnati so that I could meet my maternal grandfather. He died in 1946 after a long battle with Parkinson's disease, and I've always been sorry I never got to meet him. Based on what I've heard about him from my mom, he was a kind and decent man who enjoyed life and loved his family. I think he would have been a very fun grandfather to have. So I'd like to go back to the '30s before he became ill and spend some time with him. It would also be fun to see my maternal grandmother when she was young. I was only 9 years old when she died, and I've always regretted not having more time with her than I did.

My mom's family was 100% German, and they loved their beer. I think it would be fun to go back and spend a day with them when they were all in the prime of their lives. It might be a little weird though to be around my mom when she was a little girl. Maybe I could arrange this Wormhole trip for a time when she was out visiting her friends. :D

 Where would you go if you could book a trip with Butterman?

Butterman's release is scheduled for a perfectly chosen date: 11-12-13! Be sure to mark your calendars for PK's big day.

  1. Spending time with family members - now that's the best idea for time travel I've seen yet.
    Awesome cover, PK!

  2. The older I get, the more I appreciate what that would be like--spending time with older family members. I love the movie Peggy Sue Got Married when she just wants to hang with her grandparents--so unlike a teen.

    Thanks so much for joining in today, Julie! Great answer!

  3. Great to go back in time to meet family, not sure the 30's depression era would be my favorite time to travel too though.

  4. It would be so weird to go back and see family members when they were young. Like that scene in Back to the Future when the kids sees his mom as a teenager. Weird but fascinating. :)

    And congrats to PK Hrezo! Fabulous cover too. :)

  5. Oh, fun to go back and explore family history a bit! Great idea!

  6. That is such a sweet answer! I can definitely see why you'd want to go. :-)

  7. That's a great reason to go back. :)

    Seeing this all over! Congrats, PK!

  8. My time trip also takes me into the past, but not as far as to see my grandparents when they were young, but I would love to do that if I could book another trip! My paternal grandmother died of ovarian cancer when I was two. I never got to know her, and like with your grandfather, my mom has told me how wonderful she was to be around. Ever since I was little, I wish I could've had the chance to get to know her. <3

    Thank you for sharing!

  9. It would be interesting to know of family history firsthand. Great travel idea.

  10. A great choice for time travel!
    Family history is always fascinating...

  11. That would be cool to meet your grandfather and see what you town was like back then. Would have to be very interesting, especially in the depression.

  12. I love the sound of this book and the cover. It's definitely something I'd be interested in reading. I love the idea of time travel and the possibilities it holds.

  13. Sounds awesome, I should've thought of that - I never met either grandfather. Would have been an awesome meeting though if time travel were possible.

    Good luck - sounds and looks wonderful!

  14. I love your Wormhole theory.
    It would be nice to see family members.

  15. Gorgeous cover, PK! I'm so excited about your SF book - that is so cool! Wishing you huge success! (I have no idea "when" I'd go; there are so many possibilities.)

  16. @Alex, thanks about my idea!

    @Pk, oh, I had forgotten about that movie but I totally agree. Congrats again on your cover!

    @Siv, that's a good point, maybe I should have said the 20s instead, that probably would be more fun!

    @LG, yeah, I just love Back to the Future and that scene was funny, especially when the mom started hitting on him LOL.

    @Hart, thanks!

    @Misha, thank you.

    @Chrys, I can totally understand what you mean about your grandmother. Wish we could both go back! Thank you, it's great to meet you.

    @Mary, wouldn't it? Time travel is such fun to imagine, if only.

    @Michelle, I agree, thanks!

    @Michael, yeah, I would love to see what the city was like too.

    @Joss, I agree, the book sounds excellent!

    @Yolanda, wish you could meet your grandfathers as well. I was lucky I had my paternal grandfather in my life until I was in my 20s.

    @David, thank you!

    @Lexa, isn't it a great cover? I just love it. :)

  17. This cover has been everywhere lately. So stunning!

    Also, love your answer for this blog hop, Julie! I don't think I'd have the guts to time travel, though. I'd be too afraid of not getting to return to the present! XD

  18. @Heather, I'd probably be a chicken too. Plus I get terrible motion sickness so I'd end up sick as a dog LOL.


Thank you for your comments!
