Book Summary: In this high-action and romantic futuristic adventure, there is no escape from the future for two contemporary girls pulled out of their own time.
When twins Sheridan and Taylor wake up 400 years in the future, they find a changed world: domed cities, no animals, and a language that’s so different, it barely sounds like English. And the worst news: They can’t go back home.
The twenty-fifth-century government transported the girls to their city hoping to find a famous scientist to help perfect a devastating new weapon. The moblike Dakine fights against the government, and somehow Taylor and Sheridan find themselves in the middle. The only way to elude them all is to trust Echo, a guy with secrets of his own. The trio must put their faith in the unknown to make a harrowing escape into the wilds beyond the city.
Full of adrenaline-injected chases and heartbreaking confessions, Erasing Time explores the strength of the bonds between twins, the risks and rewards of trust, and the hard road to finding the courage to fight for what you believe in.


Today as part of my participation in this tour I have a special exerpt that C.J. Hill has selected herself for this tour.

 This is when 18 year-old twins Sheridan and Taylor first wake up in the time machine.
 

Sheridan brought her attention back to Jeth and Echo.  “Who are you?  Why are we here?”

“You’re here,” Echo said with a smirk, “because the Time Strainer doesn’t work as well as it’s supposed to.”

Taylor took a break from smacking the walls.  “Time Strainer?” she repeated. “What are you talking about?”

 “The year is 2447,” Jeth said.

Taylor shook her head, but her eyes grew worried.  “Time travel is impossible.  It’s a scientific fact.”

Jeth gave a bemused shrug.  “We were surprised too.”

This wasn’t happening.  It was an elaborate prank. Someone had made that big ball of light appear in her room, had taken Taylor and her here, put them in this glass cage, and rigged things so they floated in air like gravity didn’t exist . . .

Oh no.

You couldn’t make people float in air. This was real. 

They were in the future.

On one hand this was probably better than, say, being dead. Even as fear pushed through Sheridan, pounding in her stomach and making her ears ring; another part of her breathed out the word, “opportunity.”  Some people dreamed of the future, would give anything to see it, and here she was in it.  The future.

She saw a stark white room and a dozen people who looked like clowns who had gone bad.

It was no good being optimistic about this. She didn’t want to find out about the future.  She wanted to go home.
Jeth was explaining the Time Strainer to Taylor. “The scientists expected it to retrieve a man: Tyler Sherwood, but instead it brought us you.” He shook his head. “It’s the machine’s first use.  Obviously it still has some problems.”
Here is a little something about the author, when you are done. Go to the end and enter my contest for a copy of Erasing Time by C.J. Hill

About the Author
C. J. Hill is the mother of twins. They aren't identical, but this doesn't mean she always calls them by the right name. In fact, she occasionally calls all her children by the wrong names (she has five) and has even been known to throw the dog's name into the mix. Laugh now, but you'll do the same thing when you have kids.
If C. J. had a time machine and could visit another century, she would probably go to the Regency era instead of the future. According to all the novels she's read, the past was filled with a multitude of dashing lords and viscounts who were always on the lookout for damsels in distress, whereas the future is populated by scary dystopian societies.

  2. If C.J. only calls the roll among kids and pets she's doing better than me - I throw my brothers' and sister's name into the mix when I'm addressing my kids. Hmm... I just realized that the one name this does not include is my older sister's name. There is probably some deep psychological meaning to that. :)

  7. Hmm... Another dystopian novel huh? Well, this sounds like a good one, it has time travel AND twins, so I think it's more refreshing than the many other dystopian books out there. I do wanna know how the future world was set up, seeing it as a dystopian, the world-building is very important...
