Writer Wednesday- Screwing up Babylon
It's time for Writer Wednesday, when I discuss another author and his or her book. Today's pick is Screwing up Babylon by C.M. Keller.
This particular author is a friend of mine that I met through author forums. Besides being a very nice person, she's an engaging author. Screwing up Babylon is a YA time-travel story and the second in her series of the Mark and Miranda storyline in the Screwing Up Time series. Book three will be out next month, with a tentative date of June 6th.
What I like about this book is that it's completely unlike any other book that I've read before. Time-travel as a subject means that present with past is mashed together. Where else can you eat Hershey kisses in Babylon? Vibrant depictions of the color of time are one of my favorite parts of the story. Time travel involves journeying through colors, where the guardian of time stands as sentinel. C.M. also provides a compelling explanation of ghosts in the story. With humor and heart, this is a very interesting read that teenagers and adults (this author included!) are sure to enjoy.

My best to you all,
