Time's Twisted Arrow:  Book One of the CHRONOS Files has a 4.8 average rating out of 28 reviews and has been on the Amazon Teen Historical Fiction list for the past three weeks.

Kirkus Book Reviews: "Sharp writing, a flair for dialogue and a big, twisting imagination."

★★★★★ "Blend H. G. Wells' The Time Machine with BBC's Dr. Who, add a side of Jon D. MacDonald's The Girl, The Gold Watch and Everything, season generously with Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next novels, and you have a taste for Rysa Walker's first-in-a-series work Time's Twisted Arrow: Book One of the CHRONOS Files. Part science fiction, part historical novel, part young romance, mystery and action, all fast paced and riveting, this one will keep you up past bedtime."

They weren’t panic attacks.  Of that much, Kate is certain, no matter what the shrink said. But it’s even harder to accept the explanation offered by her grandmother—that Kate is reacting to temporal distortions only she can feel, thanks to designer DNA inherited from her time-traveling ancestors.  Kate suspects this tale is the result of her grandmother's brain tumor until reality shifts before her very eyes. Her trigonometry teacher morphs into someone else entirely and a stranger sits in her assigned chair, which was empty the second before. 

This reality sucks, with the sole exception of meeting Trey, the new guy in her trig seat. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, he doesn't seem to think she's crazy. With Trey's help, Kate learns her grandmother was murdered during research at the 1893 Columbian Exposition.  Her mom was never born and her dad is now someone else's dad.  Strangers on the Metro blink in and out like fireflies, including a guy with dark, haunted eyes who claims he knew Kate intimately in a reality she can't remember. Then there are the Cyrists, a group that shouldn't even exist, who are planning to launch a very drastic form of environmental defense.

If not for the odd blue medallion, Kate would simply cease to be.  And if she cannot learn to use that medallion to prevent her grandmother's murder at the Expo, billions of people will meet an identical fate.  With so many lives on the line, Kate has no choice.  But changing the timeline is not without cost.  Kate will remember the past few months with Trey, but when he looks at her, he'll see a total stranger.

Welcome to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book!

KindleBoards is a Kindle fan and reader forum. As you browse KindleBoards, keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (You've posted your book thread in the right place; this is just our standard welcome that we place in all book threads. :))

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread: Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum:,36.0.html. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
