Blog Tour- ECHO IN TIME by CJ Hill and a Giveaway!



Hey y’all! I have CJ Hill here today to talk about the Top 10 things she’d take with her to the future! Since her series is set in the future I couldn’t wait to see what she’d bring! Also make sure to enter the giveaway for a hardcover of the first book ERASING TIME!


Haven’t herd of ECHO IN TIME? Check it out!

Echo in Time (Erasing Time #2)
by C.J. Hill  (Pseudonym), Janette Rallison 
Paperback, 400 pages
Expected publication: December 23rd 2013
by Katherine Tegen Books
ISBN 0062123963 
Echo in Time delivers on "the possibility of an equally thrilling sequel" (Kirkus Reviews) to Erasing Time.


After being pulled 400 years into the future, twins Taylor and Sheridan have found some refuge from the government of Traventon, which used the dangerous Time Strainer to yank the girls from the past. Yet the threat of the dangerous technology still looms. Taylor and an ally, Joseph, are selected to go on a mission to destroy the time machine and weapon. But their actions before they do may have major consequences for the future and the past.

Action-packed and romantic, this futuristic sequel to Erasing Time is perfect for fans of dystopian and sci-fi novels such as The Maze Runner by James Dashner, Across the Universe by Beth Revis, and Matched by Ally Condie.

Now on to the Guest Post!

If CJ were to be pulled into the future what would be the Top 10 things she'd take with her if she could?

When traveling to the future, it's important to know what type of future you're going to. My packing list would be wildly different depending on whether I'm going to Star Trek-like future (Why bring anything when those magic boxes give you whatever you ask for?) a post apocalyptic future (the list would be heavy on survival items) or a dystopian novel (I would bring Kleenex, as I'd be crying as the government carts me off to a re-education center). Since the world in Echo in Time leans toward dystopia, I'll pack for that.

1) A sturdy pair of running shoes as I attempt to outrun evil government forces.

2) Cute outfits because the future is populated by hot guys. (Hey, you always find them in dystopian novels.)

3) Chocolate.  What if by some horrible twist of fate the future doesn't have Nutella?

4) All my loose change. My coins will be antiques in the future and therefore actually worth something. Heaven knows they aren't worth much now. Eighty-nine cents for a candy bar? Come on.

5) A translator. Language changes over time so no one could go very far into the future and still understand English.

6) Note paper to record stock prices. That way when I come back to my own time period, I can buy stocks that don't immediately plunge completely off the Dow Jones altogether.

7) Did I already mention chocolate? I'd need a supply of Snickers.

8) Pepper spray. I'm thinking about the evil government forces again.

9) Almond Joys. I'm thinking about chocolate again.

10) A way back home, because really, who would want to live in a dystopia when the Twenty-first century is so nice? Granted, the twenty-first century has a few disadvantages (crime, pollution, Miley Cyrus) but all in all, it's a great place.

Thanks CJ!

About C.J. Hill: CJ Hill is a pen name for a YA author who is best known for writing romantic comedies. (Slayers will be her 18th published book.) Her writing has shifted away from the romantic comedy genre, so her editor thought a pen name would be a good idea. (New books will include: dangerous dragons, time travel to dystopian worlds, and flesh-eating beetles.) Since the publisher refused to let her have the pseudonym : The Artist Formerly Referred to as Princess, she chose a name to honor her mother. CJ Hill was her mother's pen name, or at least it would have been if her mother had published. Her mother wrote a few children's books and a middle grade novel but was taken by cancer before she had fully learned the craft.


Most writers' first novels aren't publishable. CJ Junior's first novel wasn't, but somehow was published anyway. Now, even though it is out of print, it remains forever available on Amazon, where it taunts her with its badness. This was another good reason to use a pen name.

CJ Hill has five children, three of whom like her on any given day depending on who is in trouble. She has lived in Arizona for the last half of her life, but is still in desert denial and hopes that one day her garden will grow silver bells and cockle shells or maybe just tomatoes.
