Book Spotlight: Shadow of Time by Jen Minkman

Book length: 400 pages
Expected publication: January 1st 2013 by CreateSpace

Book Description

All Hannah needs is a nice and quiet vacation after her first year of teaching French at a high school. She joins her brother Ben for the summer in their mom’s log cabin in Arizona. There, she meets Josh again, Ben’s childhood friend from the Navajo reservation. The little boy from the rez has grown up fast, and Hannah can’t help but feeling more for him than just friendship.

But fate apparently has something else in store for her. And it’s not peace and quiet. Night after night, Hannah is plagued by strange nightmares about the past of Navajo Nation and terrifying shadows chasing her. They seem to come closer – and why is Josh always present in her dreams?

Sometimes, the past has a way of catching up with you.

What Jen says about her book

'Shadow of Time' is the reason I wanted to become a published author. Therefore, this book is very special to me. I used to just write for fun, never really considering taking the long and winding road to publication, until I was working on this story. After I managed to get a book deal for 'Schaduw van de Tijd' (which is what the book is called in Dutch, the language I originally wrote it in), I decided to then translate my own book into English so I could self-publish it worldwide through Amazon. I hope that readers all over the world will enjoy my books just as much as my Dutch fans do. The English edition is going on a book blog tour in January 2013 to promote the Kindle and paperback release of this book - my first paranormal romance novel in English. And the funny thing is that it will be released before the Dutch edition... self-publication is a lot faster, it turns out!

About Jen Minkman

Jen Minkman (1978) was born in Holland, in the town of Alphen aan den Rijn. When she was 19, she moved between The Hague, Salzburg (Austria), Brussels (Belgium) and Cambridge (UK) to complete her studies in intercultural communication. She is currently a teacher of English, career counsellor and teenage coach at a secondary school in Voorburg, Holland. She tries to read at least 100 books a year (and write a few, too!). She is a published author in her own country, and translates her own books from Dutch into English for self-publication.
In her spare time, she plays the piano, the guitar and the violin. For every novel she writes, she creates a soundtrack.

'I have always been drawn to writing. My first book was a sci-fi novel at the age of eight, which I painstakingly typed out on my dad's typewriter and illustrated myself. Nowadays, I stick to poetry, paranormal romance, chicklit and/or fantasy. In my home country, I am the first-ever published writer of paranormal romance, and I will gradually make my books also available in English (seeing I have to re-write and translate the books myself, this will take some time!).'
