    Steve- no story idea is completely original, and I think yours sounds pretty cool.

    I have an issue with writing things impossible though. I don’t know how I can get past the idea that time travel is impossible, not just from the physics aspect, but also the astro physics. How do I get past the part that everyone ignores in time travel, that the earth isn’t going to be there when you go back in time? Do I just say some device was made to compensate or transport? Isn’t that unrealistic? Also just issues with how changes in the past can impact the present, unless you have an alternate timeline. Just a little confusing, but maybe I’ll continue on it. Took a brief look at your book on my kindle fire. Like the maps.. The Princess Bride had maps like that.. Like that kind of stuff. I’m sure I’ll  enjoy it.

    Pretty sure that travel back in time is impossible, but travel forward in time is. As you approach the speed of light, time slows down (for you, not the universe, obviously), so if you were to travel at near the speed of light for an hour, a year might pass for everyone else on Earth (numbers from ass).

    Everyone knows that. Steve’s idea was to send people back in time, which is impossible.

    The first actual reader review of my novel is up- and I’m disproportionately excited.  I’m hoping for many more!  Sales continue, though at a not-so-brisk pace.

    Setting aside political discussions for a moment, has anyone actually finished reading my novel yet?  I greatly appreciate feedback- even if it wasn’t your type of book.

    I’m actually approaching it in my reading queue. I’m thinking I might start it sometime this week.

    I know everyone has been waiting with baited breath for me to talk about my novel some more, so here goes:

    After getting negative feedback about my old cover art, I commissioned a new artist; the new edition (also with some typo fixes and a new epilogue) is now for sale (ebook and paperback) here.  I’m up to 20 reviews now!

    I like the new cover art.  It reminds me of the old 1930′s adventure books.

    Thanks!  That’s pretty close to the tone I’m trying to convey.

    Curious w ho did the publishing of the book version? I got it on Friday from amazon, but doesn’t list any publisher information.

    Novasteve, I used Createspace to make the paperback.  It’s a cheap service that allows anyone to make and sell paperbacks that print-on-demand, so there’s very little up-front cost.

    Steve- I hope you enjoy the book!

    I just can’t read ebooks. Well be proud, I have three different copies of your book now. 2 ebooks and 1 hard version of it. However if I get any lazier when it comes to reading I might need an audiobook version of it.
