The Great Time Lock Disaster

There's nothing’s more dangerous than a wizard-in-training. And Pete Riley, has just proven it. He's worked a bad time spell--a very bad time spell.

No YouTube, no smoothies, no Manga. Not ever again. Not unless Pete figures out how to reverse his spell and free Weasel and him from Victorian England. 

He has until the next full moon. Only a few days.

Tick. Tock.

Here’s how the story starts, and it only gets worse:

One minute the clock was tick-tocking on the mantel and the next it was a smoldering mess.

“No,” Harriet shouted. Then she braced one hand on her desk and covered her eyes with the other.

Pete froze, not blinking, not breathing, but waiting to see if Harriet would point one of her long, bony fingers at him and turn him into a turnip or something slimy.


To celebrate the launch of The Great Time Lock Disaster I'm giving 20 eBooks away. Hope you'll jump in to the copter and go for a ride!

Usually, C. Lee takes on modern issues that today's teens face in their daily lives. Her first young adult novel, Sliding on the Edge, which dealt with cutting and suicide was published in 2009. Her second, titled The Princess of Las Pulgas, dealing with a family who loses everything and must rebuild their lives came out in 2010. Double Negative (2014) was her third young adult novel. Researching it turned her into a literacy advocate. Her fourth YA, Sudden Secrets came out in December 2014. 

When she really want to have FUN, she writes middle grade books. Alligators Overhead and The Great Time Lock Disaster are now available.

Free Urban Fantasy Novella - Give Me Your Teeth by Jeff Chapman will be FREE TODAY ONLY! I’ve read it, and it’s a great, exciting, and fun novella! This isn't your mother's Tooth Fairy. This one has teeth, lots of them, and she's not afraid to use them to defend the innocent. Get your free copy now on Amazon!

My review:
Ten year old Jimmy just lost another tooth, and that’s not all he loses that night. He loses the illusion that the Tooth Fairy is tiny, cute, and sweet. But did he really see what he thinks or did he imagine it?

Jeff Chapman does an excellent job making Jimmy realistic with the typical problems of a kid, like being laughed at when he admits he saw the tooth fairy. He has worse problems, too, in the shape of two older boys who are bullying him. Chapman weaves the disparate threads of the story together to create a tapestry of creepiness that will stay with you long after you finish the short story. I loved his main character and how he gave an old fairy tale a new twist. (I never trusted fairies anyway!) This is a scary-but-not-too-scary story with a great ending. I loved it!
