Tara Tyler Releases Pop Travel

Thanks for hosting me, Jeff!
Today, I'm going to talk about my Pop Travel Release Day!

What do you do on Release Day? It's really just a normal day. It's the night before that's crazy! You stress your brains out wondering if your book will release on time. Everyone is planning on it. It needs to be on time. The publisher and you go back and forth – Wait, fix this. Oh, no, something else! Until it all comes together (or not) and you go to bed like it's Christmas Eve.

In the morning, you open your eyes at an ungodly hour and snap awake. Dash downstairs and open your email. Did it go? Is it available? Check Amazon. YES! YES! It's there!!! Buy one right away to test it. It works! Now, post the link everywhere – blog, facebook, send it to my parents! Hey, world! I really am an author!!

Cooper thought he could
get through life
without having to pop...
And then, as you do your normal daily chores and errands and stuff, you check in once in a while and get all the sweet words of congratulations. Likes and comments and kindness and hope. A warm, comforting blanket, wrapping you up tight in virtual hugs.

And pie. A sweet ending to the sweetest of days. So far!

Here's to all of your release days, friends. Thank you all for mine!

Thanks again for having me, Jeff, and for helping me spread the word about Pop Travel!

Book Info:
POP TRAVEL by Tara Tyler
Release Date: July 7, 2013
Publisher: Curiosity Quills

In 2080, technology has gone too far for J. L. Cooper. He is happily hidden in his simple, secluded life as a private detective in a small town, far from any pop travel laser teleportation stations. Until he takes on a client who insists pop travel made his fiancé disappear.

When Cooper investigates, he finds evidence of pop travel's deadly flaw, sparking a series of murders, attempts on his life, and threats to his brother. He’d like to pass off the evidence but knows he’s being watched and can’t trust anyone. And who would believe him?

The only way he can save his brother is to fool his observers while looking for a way to expose the problem. He decides to go to the source and confront the Creator of pop travel. On his way, Cooper meets Southern siren, Geri Harper (an undercover FBI agent) who tags along despite his protests. When they reach the Creator, he has plans of his own and leads them on a wild detour.
