Time Rep is now released!
Well, the day I’ve been waiting for is finally here – after first putting pen to paper back in 2002 (or should I say “putting finger to keyboard”, even though that’s a little less romantic as a mental image), Time Rep has been published. You can now buy it, read it, like it, review it positively, and make all your friends buy it. If you like. Of course, you’re free to not buy it, say it’s crap without reading it, and tell all your friends not to buy it. But don’t do that though, because that’s cruel. In the absence of a major marketing campaign to support the launch of the book, I’m trying to generate what marketeers call “word of mouth”, whereby people tell each other about something of their own accord. I have to say though, I never did understand why it’s called “word of mouth”. Why does it have to be just one word? Can’t it be called “words of mouth” instead, or are people literally only allowed to use one word? If that’s the case, I’ve managed to get round this by inventing a new word for people to use. It goes like this:
It’s a bit of a mouthful, however you can also use the acronym below if you like:
That’s easier, isn’t it? If you’re still on the fence as to whether to read Time Rep, I would say that if you’ve been following my blog for the last few weeks, you’ll probably like it, even if you’re not a massive sci-fi reader – the book is exactly the same sort of nonsense I spout on this site, only it’s 81,500 words longer and has a plot. If you need more convincing, it also has quite a good joke in it on page 212 about supermarket conveyor belts – what more could you ask for from a novel?
So you can purchase Time Rep from any of the wonderful websites below:

In all seriousness though, I’m thrilled the book is out. Time Rep was a real labour of love to write, and the feeling of finally having a copy in my hands is indescribable. Just look how happy I am in the picture below, and you’ll see what I mean:
Anyway, I do hope you enjoy it! Bye for now!
I absolutely love this book, and I’m so excited that a hard copy of it is out! I found it and read it online a while back, and fell in love with the story. It’s definitely the best time travel book that I’ve ever read, and I look forward to reading Peter’s new book as well.

Hey Dove, thanks for the comment – I’m really pleased that you liked Time Rep so much, and to hear someone say they think it’s the best time travel book they’ve ever read is quite overwhelming for me! I think the new paperback version is much improved on the earlier version you would have read, so I do hope you think the changes I made were for the better. Thanks again for getting in touch. Pete
