–Travel to the future – it will only cost you everyone you love.–
Attacked and injected with a drug which slows his metabolism to a fraction of normal, Martin James becomes an unwilling time traveler who hurtles through the years. His children grow up, his wife grows older, and his only hope is finding the people who injected him in the first place- not an easy task when one day for Martin lasts four years. And while Martin James strives to find a cure before everyone he loves is gone, others are uncertain if his journey can be stopped at all.W. Lawrence weaves a dystopian future filled with the best and worst of humanity, highlights the blessings and curses of technology, and pushes the limits of faith and hopelessness. Above all, Syncing Forward is a tale of one man’s love for his family, and their devotion to saving him from being lost forever.
“…A thoroughly original premise, and a story which can easily translate to film or TV due to a storyline that takes us in so many directions, even beyond what we have here in the book. A blueprint for a new breed of time travel tales, and an extraordinary example as any of how to take a well-worn concept and present something unexpected.” —Matt Misetich, Director of Book Pipeline
“This is the human side of time travel. Not the “feeling dizzy” stuff from H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine, but that of zooming forwards in time and missing time spent growing up with your family. The emotional stuff. The stuff which makes us human and not robotic drones.” —Paul, Time2TimeTravel
“I can honestly say that this isn’t your usual cookie cutter time travel book, but, if I can say so, it’s much better. Syncing Forward has fresh ideas and a very different outlook on what the future might hold for us.” –Jess, A Cup of Tea and a Big Book
