My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday Review

My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday

By Jason Ayres

When 54 year old Thomas Scott wakes up in a hospital bed on New Year’s Day he has no memory of who he is or why he is there. Racked with pain from a terminal illness, death swiftly follows. 

The next day he awakes to find himself alive again and confused, especially when he discovers that it is now New Year’s Eve. As the days pass he begins to realise that he is living his life backwards one day at a time. 

So begins the extraordinary tale of a man who goes to sleep on Sunday nights and wakes up on Saturday mornings: A man who cannot form a meaningful relationship with a woman because when he jumps back to the previous day, she has no memory of him. And a man who can win a fortune from gambling any time he likes, but has only one day to spend it. 

Trying to find some purpose in life he resolves to find out as much about his own personal history as he can. Learning of the death of his wife and an attack on his daughter, he prepares to make changes in the past to secure their future. 

From middle-aged father all the way back to childhood, the passing years present all manner of different challenges as he grows ever more youthful. 

Set in and around Oxford between the years of 1970 and 2025, this unique concept for a time travel novel features plenty of humour, nostalgia and “what if?” moments. 

Taking place in the same universe as the author's Time Bubble series, this is a standalone novel aimed at a more adult audience. It can be enjoyed without the need to have read those earlier books.

***MY HONEST REVIEW OF My Tomorrow***

Thomas awakens to find he is in a hospital dying. He has no memory of who he is, or why he is there. As he dies, he again awakens in the hospital, same scenario. By the third day of doing this, he comprehends that he is regressing with each wake, to the day before the last. With this realization, Thomas puts a plan in motion unsure of what consequences lie ahead for him as well as his family.

The plot of this story is what enticed me to read it. Thomas was such a pleasant character to follow thru his regressing lifetime. There were so many scenarios presented that I never would have thought of, much less gotten through them myself. I like how it had me wondering what other things I would do, and if I would change certain things in my past. And I felt so sorry for Thomas, and could feel his loneliness, each time he passed the day of awareness for each of his loved ones, knowing he would never see them again. It’s a rude awakening to see how you have the same emotions even if different results, when you go forward or backward with your life. I loved how it brought back my memories of recording the top 40’s on cassettes every Sunday growing up, so many of my good memories.

Call Me Pomeroy Review

Call Me Pomeroy

By James Hanna

Pomeroy, a towering street musician on parole, is out of the clink for the upteenth time and wants to become another Bob Dylan. With fame and fortune in mind, he heads to Occupy Oakland, hoping to get on television, attract an agent, and score a million dollar contract for Ants in My Pants, his marathon ditty. Pomeroy is a skirmish-loving, dumpster-diving, narcissistic crazy who thinks he can sing like Pavarotti and that all women want to jump his bones. His parole officer, a street-smart Hispanic woman, tells Pomeroy to quit looking at her alligator pumps and to get himself a real plan. But Pomeroy has schemes of his own and more wisdom than we’d like to admit. You may find his egocentric opinions politically incorrect. (“There ain’t a dyke alive ol’ Pomeroy can’t turn straight.”) You may find yourself laughing when you shouldn’t. (“A good strong piss is better ’an sex. Lasts longer too.”). But don’t blame yourself if you start rooting for this anti-hero. You’ll have lots of company. (Note: Adult language and situations).
***MY HONEST REVIEW OF Call Me Pomeroy***

Pomeroy is one of a kind. He’s irresistible to women. At least that’s the way he sees it. He once wrote a song called Ants in My Pants and became an overnight internet sensation. Pomeroy believes that he’s destined to be a star. The problem though, is that when he’s not in jail, he’s hiding from the law. But his stardom is coming, he just knows it, any day now.

This story’s plot had me chuckling throughout. I don’t think you can find a more colorful character than Pomeroy. Actually, the rest of the characters in this story were pretty amusing themselves. Pomeroy had a bounty of the most interesting catch-phrases. His raunchy personality, as well as his vulgar language was such a put off, but I couldn’t stop reading. He was so crazy funny, that it had my side hurting from laughing so much. I love this author’s writing style. He gives you such imaginative characters that you can’t help but want to follow their adventure, even if you don’t like them.

Booker: Blood Ring Tour and Giveaway

New Release....

Her dimpled smile and alluring gaze wouldn’t work this time. Neither would her charm, curves, and effervescent youth--qualities that had always kept her moving in all the right circles. The high life.

Not this time. This time was terrifyingly different.

Shackled by her own regrets and the hell delivered by her captors, she struggles to find a sliver of hope where there is none. Time ticks . . .

Having made a name for himself in just a few short months as a Dallas PI, Booker T. Adams yanks the brake on everything once the sister of his business partner and friend, Alisa Lopes, goes missing.

Meanwhile, a family grieves for the loss of their child, another teen who thought she could have it all. Hired to find her killer, Booker treads through a layer of slime, trying to uncover who could be preying on a generation blinded by the hyper-active pursuit of fame and fortune—someone who enjoys it far too much.

With time running out before another shining star turns up in a body bag, Booker chases an invisible executor, grasping at any shred of evidence to find the young beauty.

For Alisa. For the grieving family. For every girl plucked off the street never to be heard from again. It has to stop. Today. In Dallas. Booker will either succeed or die trying. And so will countless others.

Book available to buy from...    Barnes and Noble    iTunes   Kobo   

***MY HONEST REVIEW OF Blood Ring***

When Alisa’s sister Natalie goes missing, she and her partner Booker work around the clock to find her. After Natalie’s friend Jade is found brutally murdered, they know that they have to hurry and find something to link the two events together. Following the clues, they find themselves leaning more and more on each other personally, as well as professionally.

Although the descriptions were more graphic than I would have liked, I think it helped me to feel the extreme emotions of the characters. This installment of the Booker series was definitely on the dark side. But I like that Booker showed some of his softer side. I look forward to seeing where this leads.

Booker: Streets of Mayhem (Booker #1)
On a cool October afternoon, the majestic blue sky above Dallas is polluted with swells of gray smoke, carrying shattered memories of fifteen people, mostly children, who've just been killed by an explosion on a bus.

A white supremacist group claims responsibility, opening old wounds, turning neighbor against neighbor--fracturing the community. A Southeast Dallas native, Booker T. Adams couldn't be more invested in the city…in the people he'd served for the last seven years as a beat cop for the Dallas Police Department. Without warning, it becomes personal for Booker on so many levels. And as panic grips the city, he must decide how much he's willing to sacrifice to end the chaos.

With his career called into question and his family in the crosshairs of one terrorist act after another, Booker invests every fiber of his being to protect a broken community, and to stop the brutal, senseless slayings.

If he fails, terrorism will reign in the city of Dallas.

Booker: Tap That (Booker #2)
A performance for the ages.

Courtney Johnson brings the house down in the heart of the vibrant Dallas Arts District. Later, shrills pierce the hallways of Wyle Theater when Courtney, a budding Broadway musical star, is found dead, a single bullet to the head.

Driven to find the killer before panic tears apart the arts community and all those who support it, private investigator Booker T. Adams discovers evidence of a professional hit, then uncovers a lovers ' triangle that takes him all the way to the mean streets of Boston.

And then it happens again. Another performer killed, someone Booker had met. Rocked by the shocking murders, performers and patrons alike fear that a serial killer is on the loose, and no one knows when and or where another dead body will show up.

But professional obligations quickly morph into personal vendettas. Running against an unforgiving clock, Booker is forced to solicit the help of a crime boss, The Shark.

With his life threatened at almost every turn, and his heart being put through a meat grinder, Booker taps into every resource at his disposal to stop more than just a killer.

But at what price?

Full of unforgettable characters, bone-chilling suspense and stunning thrills, BOOKER - Tap That is a wild ride that will test even the most fervent reader's quest for a luminous reading experience.

Booker: Hate City (Booker #3)
After a life filled with destruction of others and himself, and his body ravaged by disease, there's only one thing left for Javier Calero to do. Leave a legacy that will finally bring meaning to his life—and to the death of an American president more than fifty years ago.

The CEO of a green energy company is murdered behind his million-dollar estate, his neck nearly severed in two. Recruited to aid the widow and find a savage killer, Booker finds himself in the middle of a family train wreck.

Days later, thrust into the crossfire of a deadly sniper, Booker eludes sure death with the uncanny arrival of a young woman who only wants to save her father from harm. But she can't do it without Booker's help.

Joining forces with a Latin spitfire, Booker and his new sidekick, Maggie, embark on a twenty-four-hour quest to hunt down a killer determined to make an indelible mark on history—just like the one that struck down John F. Kennedy a half-century earlier, which launched a cascade of assassination investigations and theories.

BOOKER - Hate City weaves a historic tale of thrills and suspense, examining the justifications of the unjustifiable.
