Blog Tour: Untimed by Andy Gavin

Join Andy Gavin, author of the Young Adult Time Travel/Adventure novel, Untimed, as he tours the blogosphere July 1 - July 26, 2013 on his first virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book!


Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00004] Untimed by Andy Gavin

Charlie's the kind of boy that no one notices. Hell, his own mother can't remember his name. So when a mysterious clockwork man tries to kill him in modern day Philadelphia, and they tumble through a hole into 1725 London, Charlie realizes even the laws of time don't take him seriously. 

Still, this isn't all bad. Who needs school when you can learn about history first hand, like from Ben Franklin himself. And there's this girl... Yvaine... another time traveler. All good. Except for the rules: boys only travel into the past and girls only into the future. And the baggage: Yvaine's got a baby boy and more than her share of ex-boyfriends. 

Still, even if they screw up history -- like accidentally let the founding father be killed -- they can just time travel and fix it, right? But the future they return to is nothing like Charlie remembers. To set things right, he and his scrappy new girlfriend will have to race across the centuries, battling murderous machines from the future, jealous lovers, reluctant parents, and time itself. (book blurb)

  1. Loving the idea of a murderous clockwork man but given that I have difficulties with time travel novels to begin with this with its boys travelling into the past, girls into the future, has the potential to totally confuse me.

  2. Ooh, I actually read this one when it was touring with another group! There were one or two points lacking but overall it was GOOD! If it captures your interest at all in the synopsis or sample, I'd definitely recommend taking a closer look. Thanks for sharing! ^_^

  3. Sounds fun! I have a hard time with middle grade type books, though.

  4. I do like the sounds of this one, and the looks too. :) I've seen it around and am curious about it. :) Thank you!

  5. It looks like a great read. Good luck with the tour. :-)
