So, please, take it away, Tara!
Thanks for helping me spread the news about my new cover, M.J.!
I'm reading M.J.'s epic fantasy, EFFIGY and I'm thoroughly rapt up in it! Unfortunately, I'm such a snail reader. But as soon as I finish, I'll be writing a rave review! And now I'm excited to hear her thoughts on POP TRAVEL. When she read it, she asked me about the fate of one of the minor characters and I assured her he didn't die (I'm no George R R Martin!) I really appreciate M.J. giving POP TRAVEL a savagely honest review. She knows how to put a humorous spin on truth!
I read POP TRAVEL the summer when it first came out. It was a departure from my usual reading habits. I mean, unless Joss Whedon tells me otherwise, I generally don't go for the futuristic/sci-fi stories. I picked up this book because of the author.
And while the idea of actually pop-traveling scares the ever-living daylights out of me (among other things), I really enjoyed this story. Which is to say, that I really liked the main character. Cooper is an interesting guy, and when I reached the end of the book, I sincerely wanted to know what he would be doing next. I've said multiple times that I'll read anything if I like the character. Well, I like Cooper and his associates, and I'm looking forward to September when their next adventure is released.
I also have to give Tara a special shout-out because she was kind enough to assuage my worries over that aforementioned minor character. If you wondered, it was a German shepherd. And, I am told, he lived happily ever after.

Re-released July 1, 2015
In 2080, technology has gone too far for private detective J. L. Cooper. He thinks he can avoid pop travel teleportation, until he stumbles onto a video of a pop traveler who turns to dust.
Sparking a series of murders, attempts on his life, and threats to his brother, Cooper wants to pass off the evidence but knows he’s being watched and can’t trust anyone. And who would believe him?
With help from the neurotic genius “Creator” of pop travel and a beautiful Southern charmer, Cooper must expose the deadly glitch and shut it down or die trying. No problem.
