Book Description

From the writing journal of author April Hill:

"I found this peculiar document in a writing desk I purchased for just a few dollars in a run-down little junk shop in London. In a jammed drawer I found a jumble of papers that I took to be letters.

As I began to read,,I realized that the pages weren't letters at all, but a sort of journal, written over a hundred years ago,, by a woman with a fairly good education, a big mouth and a really bad temper. The writer claims to be related to the famous writer, H.G. Wells, and writes about an amazing voyage through time. I know, ridiculous, right?

Maybe, but there's something about the thing that rings true. She was certainly a giant pain in the ass, and a major brat, as you'll see when you begin to read. This lady gets herself spanked a LOT, and it sounds like she had most of those spankings coming!

True? Not true? Your guess is as good as mine, but it makes a great read. Whatever you believe, you won't be bored."

Publisher's Note: A Glitch in Time is a great time travel-read for anyone who likes bratty heroines, long-suffering husbands, a good dose of history, with a Victorian flair.

By Marshall Lord TOP 500 REVIEWER
"A Glitch in Time" was originally published in 2008 by Blushing Books with the author using the name Judith McClaren. It has now , been republished in 2014 in this ebook edition for the kindle, with the same title but the author now using the pen-name April Hill.

It is a short-to medium length novel - the original Blushing Books paperback edition had 192 pages - which in roughly equal parts is a comedy science fiction story about a couple who get lost in time, and a work of spanking erotica.

April Hill claims to have "found this peculiar document in a writing desk I purchased for just a few dollars in a run-down junk shop in London."

Ahem. She bought something in a junk shop in London and refers to the purchase as if had been made using dollars?

Possible this indicates that the book was written for the US market, but to be honest it also gives you a pretty fair idea of how closely the author attempts, or rather doesn't, to make the details of the various times and places in the story feel authentic and accurate.

The main text of the story was supposedly written in August 1909 by Abigail, the young niece of H.G. Wells. It suggests that the great novelist had managed after much effort to build for real a working prototype of the Time Machine from his eponymous novel.

Abigail and her American husband, Edward, activate the Time Machine and find themselves on a journey through various periods of Earth's history and future, from King Arthur's court to Ancient Rome, from the Wild West to the year 3599 AD. During each of those periods Abigail demonstrates a remarkable facility for getting herself into all sorts of trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich tones. 17 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase
“No one would have believed in the last years of the 19th Century, that human affairs were being watched …”
Right idea, wrong book.
But its author? This book honours its the Wells predecessor, but takes, what I might call, rather full advantage of the possibilities the great man missed. Or chose not to include. Jeff Wayne hasn’t produced his version of this either. Or at least not yet! Come on Jeff! Consider the percussion you could use; The special effects; The stage show and world tour!
But HGW appears … the old rascal. Who knew?
The story is fast and sore and very entertaining. As always in my view, it is the tone that April Hill gets so right. What else do you need to know? A keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Funny Time-Travel Spankings 21 April 2014
Absolutely loved this story which was fast-paced, irreverent and jam-packed full of spankings. I love the idea that HG Wells wasn’t only content to write about a time machine but decided to build one. Except that unlike the one in his book, his machine seems to travel in space as well as time. His niece , Abigail and her husband, Edward, accidentally set off the device and find themselves on a whirlwind adventure which encompasses King Arthur’s Camelot, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Wild West and plenty more. At every turn, Abi inevitably gets her bottom spanked either by her husband or one of the domineering historical figures she comes across. She tends to deserve it. Although the story is mainly played for laughs there is a pretty sweet romance between Abi and Edward at the heart of it which makes for a very satisfying story.
