New Cover and Giveaway: Forward to Camelot: 50th Anniversary Edition by Susan Sloate, Kevin Finn

Description:

WHERE WERE YOU THE DAY KENNEDY WAS SAVED?

On the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination comes a new edition of the extraordinary time-travel thriller first published in 2003, now extensively revised and re-edited, and with a new Afterword from the authors.

On November 22, 1963, just hours after President Kennedy’s assassination, Lyndon Johnson was sworn in as President aboard Air Force One using JFK’s own Bible. Immediately afterward, the Bible disappeared. It has never been recovered. Today, its value would be beyond price.

In the year 2000, actress Cady Cuyler is recruited to return to 1963 for this Bible—while also discovering why her father disappeared in the same city, on the same tragic day. Finding frightening links between them will lead Cady to a far more perilous mission: to somehow prevent the President’s murder, with one unlikely ally: an ex-Marine named Lee Harvey Oswald.

Forward to Camelot: 50th Anniversary Edition brings together an unlikely trio: a gallant president, the young patriot who risks his own life to save him, and the woman who knows their future, who is desperate to save them both. 

History CAN be altered …

Kah Cherub, glad you like the cover--it took us ages to get it right! And Cyndi--I love time travel too--this was time travel through the Internet!

Ginny said...

JFK and time travel, thanks!

susansloate said...

Hope you'll all check it out further--there's a LOT of real (but unknown) history in the book that reads like we made it up, but trust me--no writer could make this stuff up! A lot of it really happened, and it was great for us to blend the real facts with our fiction (and we have an Afterword explaining which is which!)
