Today I’m very happy to host the launch of Xuanira J’s first long length novel Before Time, a tragic romance I thoroughly enjoyed.
I’ve been asked by my friend Xuanira if it was OK for me to host a stop of her Before Time’s blog tour promo. As a fellow author and having read and reviewed Before Time, I obviously couldn’t say no.
Published last November 2014 and available in ebook and paperback, Before Time has been defined by its creator Xuanira as a tragic romance. I can totally agree with this definition: the story is gripping and scattered with dramatic turns of events.
His eyes told her what his tongue could not.
Nineteen-year-old Onaiza Shahid is a loner and a dreamer, bookish and socially isolated. A chance ramble into chatting software changes everything. The words of a stranger compel her. Addicted and falling fast, their secret love changes her life. But will the idealistic teenager get her happily ever after?
Before Time is the first volume of The Time Trilogy, so this is a good excuse to grab it and give it a go. Here is a quick excerpt, go check it out and find out if Before Time might be your cup of tea.
Impassioned: I don’t have the strength to stay away from you anymore.
ME: Then don’t!
Impassioned: How different a feeling it is to stay on the main stream and then say it here.
ME: Of course. On the main stream, I just thought it was chatter without any meaning.
Impassioned: It was never mere chat, and still isn’t. Only you understood it now.
ME: Yes, I guess so.
Oh!! He was finally telling me his name. Wow! Just wow!
ME: Nice to meet your, Asher.
