Simulation Cover Reveal!

Hello, all! I'm still catching up with life after being on vacation, (I had a great time and came back feeling recharged and happy, yay!) so I'm turning the blog over to Tara Tyler today to showcase the stunning cover for her upcoming novel Simulation. Tara also has a great bit of writerly advice to share. But first I just want to say thank you to everyone who shared about my free books last week and over the weekend. I really appreciate the support! Thank you all so much. :)

And now on to the Simulation cover!

To go with the cover reveal, here's a bit of writerly advice from Tara Tyler...

I have a terrible memory that gets worse all the time (where's my phone??) So I use a spreadsheet for each book to help me remember names I've used, gadgets and symbols I create, how to spell things, etc. I also keep track of my chapters with my own titles when I have to check on something... How do you remember the details of your writing??

It's finally here!! I give you the taunting cover of SIMULATION!

SIMULATION by Tara Tyler
Release Date: September 14, 2015

In 2082, androids are an essential part of daily life. Some are helpful, some would make better toasters, and some are so human-like they're creepy. Back in Atlanta, Detective Cooper's latest client has him searching for her boyfriend who she thinks was replaced by a simulation, an illegal clone android. The guy also happens to be a popular new congressman.

To make matters more frustrating, Cooper keeps crossing paths with his ex, FBI Agent Geri Harper who is looking for the same guy. As Cooper closes in, Geri is kidnapped. But when she resurfaces in Washington and goes on a killing spree, he knows it isn't her. Now under suspicion himself, Cooper must find the real Geri to prove her innocence, not to mention hunt down the powerful villain behind it all. Never a dull moment.

Re-released July 1, 2015

In 2080, Detective J.L. Cooper thought he could avoid pop, until he stumbles onto a video of a traveler who turns to dust. With help from the neurotic, genius “Creator” and a beautiful Southern charmer, Cooper has to expose the deadly glitch and shut it down or die trying. No problem.

  1. I've started keeping a spreadsheet for my novels recently. It's funny when I have to think, "What's that character's name again?"

  2. Great cover, Tara!
    Welcome back from vacation, Julie.

  3. Yes. The androids and robots are coming to take over the world. YIKES! Great cover!

    Hi Julie! Glad you had a great vacation.

    Hugs and chocolate!

  4. Congratulations Tara!

    making a spreadsheet is the only way to go, I have a hard time with names and time lines, if I had to create gadgets too, I'd be up a creek, spreadsheet or not! :)

  5. Sorry, forgot to welcome Julie back. :)
    Welcome back, so glad your vacation was wonderful!

  6. Congratulations, Tara. I tend to write things down, or else I do forget why I did certain things the way I did.

    Welcome Back, Julie. I'm glad the break helped.

  7. It's such a great cover. Yay for Tara! Here's to epic adventures to come.

  8. Oooo, I love spreadsheets! What a great idea :) Congrats again, Tara, and welcome back from vaca Julie! So glad it was great!

  9. thanks for the kind words you guys!
    and julie - can't wait for Imaginarium!! only 1 1/2 months! so far, yet so close.
    thanks again for having me and welcome back =)

  10. Great cover and a unique book idea which sounds quite interesting. Welcome back Julie. In my menopausal brain, Monday night I suddenly remembered that I was supposed to meet my brother the past Saturday! Oopsy!

  11. Love that cover!

    I make detailed plot notes, character lists / notes, and timelines for my stories. I couldn't keep up with it otherwise.

  12. Hi Julie,

    Ah yes, life after vacation. Delighted to see the lovely Tara featured. And what a cover reveal! Stimulation for "Simulation." Congrats Tara and here's to your release date, as in the date of the release of your book.

    Thank you, Julie.

    Gary :)

  13. (Looks around.) Yeah, I'm the oldest broad around here, so I definitely have to write things down. But the good thing about that is after I jot things down, I can relax, because I know the note won't let me down like my memory might. (Assuming I remember to look at the note...)

    Welcome back, Julie! I'm glad you had a good vacation.

    Great looking cover, Tara! Best wishes for a successful release.

  14. Woohoo! The new book sounds like loads of fun and excitement. The cover is awesome, too. Congrats to Tara!!

  15. thanks for visiting me. I'm always messing up eye color and even names as I attempt fiction. So far, I've had more success with memoir and poetry.

  16. Wow, what an amazing cover! Simulation sounds so intense. Congrats to Tara! :)

  17. Oooo....I just finished reading Pop Travel. I didn't know there was going to be a sequel. Wonderful!!! Congrats to Tara!!!

  18. Android imposters? What a great idea for conflict and good storytelling.

  19. What an amazing premise--and maybe that will really happen far into the future. I love the cover.

  20. Love the cover for Simulation as well as the new one for Pop Travel. They give a really edgy feel. Congrats Tara and glad you had a good holiday, Julie!

  21. I absolutely love that cover!! Well done Tara :)

    I'm going on a holiday soon - I hope I'll return recharged ;)
