On this lovely July 2nd I am bringing you something different. Not a review but a guest post. Roy Huff is here to talk with you about time travel in celebration of the release of his new book Seven Rules of Time Travel that is coming out this month!
Time Travel Is Pure Fiction
It’s been said that time travel is the ultimate superpower. But time travel is also powerful fiction.
What makes it such a pure art form is that it epitomizes both escape and change. It touches the very heart of why people read fiction in the first place. It takes you to another world, another time, another place, and allows you to do the impossible.
Time travel lets you experience history through a different lens or from someone else’s eyes. It allows you to meet interesting people and experience deep emotions. It lets you see a future where you could make unique choices, better choices.
Time travel is a therapeutic tool to shrug of life’s heavy burdens, if for a moment. And in its place, you find the miracle drugs of elation and possibility.
Imagine spending time with someone you loved but lost some time ago. Do you remember the last second you spent with that person? Now reflect on the most amazing moment you shared with them. How would you feel if you could relive that experience over again for as long as you wished?
Time travel is a subtle device that forces you to reflect on your finite existence. In The Fellowship of the Ring, Gandolf said, “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” But that choice is both simple and hard. Deciding what to do with that time determines the outcome of your life. It forms the emotions created from that decision.
Time travel forces you to confront the reality of your choices. An unknown author said, “you always have time for what you put first.” So that begs the question: What have you put first? Time gives you an amazing gift because it’s a choice you get to make every second of your life.
Every moment is a new moment and a new opportunity to turn what might have been into what is. Time travel allows you to imagine what’s important to you. It lets you feel what it could be like if you only had the courage to do what in your heart you know you want to do.

What if you could rewrite the past?
Quinn Black is having the worst day ever . . . over and over again. The same car blocking his driveway, the same horrific accident he witnesses, the same cop that keeps preventing him from saving his boss from dying in it, and the same memory of a girl from his past that gets sharper each time.
Then he realizes he has the power to travel through time and change the future. With infinite opportunities to alter the past, the possibilities are endless. Could he prevent terrorist attacks? Natural disasters? The deaths of friends? Or even go back in time and say the right thing to the girl who haunts his dreams?
Unfortunately, the rules of time travel are more complicated than he imagined, and before long, Quinn is thrust into the greatest race in human history. His actions can either save the world or destroy it. And now the man who could turn back the clock is running out of time.

Time travel is very exciting & fascinating stuff, although it doesn’t thrill me at it once did. I’d still like a good fiction with time traveling involved but I now believe that time traveling is just wrong. Changing something in the past to change who we presently are ? Just, no. Taking everyday as a gift and accepting who we are now thanks to what happened in our past, yes. Anyways, thanks for this great post! 🙂

“You always have time for what you put first.” That’s a new quote for me, thanks for bringing it to my attention. It strikes a little closer to home than I am fully comfortable with. I think I’m going to have to spend some time reevaluating what I put first now.
Congrats on the book release!
