PRLog - June 22, 2012 - Julia Hughes, four times published author of the Celtic Cousins' Adventure used a promotional blast to score in excess of 16,800 downloads in a five day period grabbing her the #1 spot in the much coveted Action & Adventure category on Amazon.com
"I started this promotion expecting to get perhaps a thousand downloads, but the response has been staggering."
"In just 5 days my book has been downloaded all over the globe, gaining extra reviews, as well as lifting the sales of both the prequel and sequel titles." she added.
With an average 4.5* rating, it's easy to see why A Ripple in Time has become a runaway success. Despite home grown artwork, and no promotional budget the quality of Miss Hughes' work has evidently shone through with one reviewer dubbing it "the paranormal Sophie's Choice."
A Ripple in Time sees Wren, the protagonist from Miss Hughes’ previous book, psychically connect with a girl on board the Titanic. She uses his knowledge to save the doomed liner, and the course of history is altered. Awakening in a war torn present day due to the continuation of world war one, Wren must find a way to undo the deviation with the help of Carrie, the love of his live.
It's up to Wren to decide whether to save history, and doom those on board the Titanic. The kicker is that Carrie is the descendent of the girl from his dream, and if the ship sinks his love will never have been born.
Touching on the fundamental schism between heart and mind, Wren's utilitarian logic must wrestle with his heart to decide the fate of the present.
