This novel was first released, as an e-book and paperback, four years ago. Last year, my publisher, Rebecca J. Vickery, started to explore the world of audio books and, to cut a long story short, ‘Changing the Future’ was released as an audio book just over a week ago.
Here’s an introduction to the story:
Lisa Marshall is stunned when celebrated volcanologist Paul Hamilton comes back into her life at the college where she now teaches. Despite their acrimonious break-up several years earlier, they soon realise the magnetic attraction between them is stronger than ever. However, the past is still part of the present, not least when Paul discovers Lisa has a young son. They can’t change that past, but will it take a volcanic eruption to help them change the future?
The story is set mainly in North West England, but also includes a romantic interlude in New York, and a tense climax in Iceland.
Reviewers have said:
“I love this book. It drew me in. the way it is written, the reader is able to sympathize with both Lisa as well as Paul. There is an element of danger as Paul practices his profession as a volcanologist and at one point, I was hanging on every word, waiting with Lisa to see if Paul came through his adventure unscathed. This story tells how one simple misunderstanding can grow and fester until, like a volcano, everything finally comes spewing out to finally be resolved.”
“The characters were believable through and through and I'm glad they were so realistic. Oftentimes romance novels leave me shaking my head, knowing that people aren't really like the characters as they are portrayed on the page. Paula Martin created likeable, interesting characters who lead life like real people. You wanted their happy ending but she didn't make it easy for them to get there, and in reality it never is as simple as some stories make it out to be. That's what made this novel so good.”
‘Changing the Future’ is available for Kindle (only 99 cents/99 pence!) and as a paperback from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Changing-Future-Paula-Martin-ebook/dp/B0082VIXNU?ie=UTF8&ref
