Cover Reveal - "Pop Travel" by Tara Tyler

I've been a follower of Tara's blog for a while now and been fascinated by the little snippets she's let out over time, so I'm thrilled that she's so close to launching this story out in the world.

I'm excited today to be part of the cover reveal of Pop Travel.

Private Investigator J. L. Cooper always knew pop travel laser teleportation was too good to be true. Finding video proof of a disintegrating traveler is the stomach turning “I told you so.”

Cooper can’t broadcast the video on the nosy, government monitored Qnet, so he digs around, revealing more suspicious traveler disappearances, the death of his client, and threats to his political little brother, who is in jeopardy of turning to dust anyway for disregarding Cooper’s warnings not to pop. Cooper has to do everything himself. 

To stop the disappearances and save his brother he must shut down the ruthless mega corp Pop Travel International (PTI). And that means convincing Hasan Rakhi, the celebrity Creator of pop travel, to publicly admit the deadly flaw. No problem. Under constant surveillance, Cooper will have to be unpredictable, facing his fear of popping to crash a party at Hasan’s well-fortified plantation compound. Yes, the laser fences are real. As long as he survives his next pop, Cooper won’t let anything distract him from getting the job done. Not the android security guards, who aren’t as bright as they look, or even Southern Comfort in a purple dress, Geri Harper (an undercover Agent). Nothing Coop can’t handle.

Release Date: July 7, 2013
Publisher: Curiosity Quills

About Tara:

Math teacher by day, sports mom by night,
When does she have time to write?

Good question, but the Lazy Housewife makes time! Tara Tyler writes sci fi, thriller, and fantasy, with dabs of romance and humor and tips for efficient living. Something for everyone.

Literature and film have touched on interesting ways to quickly get from one place (or time) to another. There's apparting in Harry Potter. There's the fax-like transportation through time in Crichton's Timeline. And, of course, there's the transporter in Star Trek. The cartoon below is from a 1967 edition of Mad Magazine which did a spoof of classic Star Trek.

But it does address some problems inherent with travel of this kind. What do you think of it. Cool? Crazy? Would you do it?


  1. Pop Travel - dig the name and reason behind it, Tara!
    Cool cover as well.

  2. Nice cover, nice concept--good luck, Tara!

  3. I bet Tara is thrilled to finally have her cover. I was wondering when it would come out. It's really cool!

  4. Great cover indeed, love the title too.

  5. Even Harry Potter there was mention of people losing body parts. It was never shown in the book, only mentioned in casual conversation. Congrats Tara on your upcoming book and excellent cover.

  6. Yay for Tara! Seeing her novel cover everywhere today. And that Star Trek cartoon is hilarious. We're kind of on the same page there today. :)

  7. i loooove the cartoon!
    and recently saw a big bang rerun where sheldon says teleportation behaves similarly to my book (minus the lasers). i was astounded. i love sheldon!
