First Time Blog Tour

Tour Schedule

Welcome to the blog tour for First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch by Samuel Ben White! I have an excerpt of the book for you today, so be sure to check that out. Also, the link to the rest of the tour is under the banner, so be sure to check out all the other stops as well.




"What if history didn't happen that way ... the first time?"

Garison Fitch was one of the most revered scientists in the Soviet Americas until he left fame behind to work on a secret project in his log cabin in the mountains of Marx.

But something went wrong. Instead of traveling interdimentionally, Garison has traveled through time ... twice.

Now, he's in something called "The United States of America" and a woman he's never met before is calling herself his wife. It it a hoax? Or, has he somehow changed history?

If so, can he return the world to what he believes is "normal", or must he live in this strange world he created?

Saving Time

Two years ago Garison Fitch traveled through time and rewrote history. An accident in the eighteenth century created a whole new world, and even gave Garison a wife he had never met before. Now, he’s got a daughter and he’s coming to enjoy this world he created. Until he’s attacked by men masquerading as Indians, and a funeral procession from out of the past enlists his help, and a tree grows from sappling to full-grown in a matter of minutes, threatening his daughter’s very life. Time itself is unraveling and Garison’s trips through time seem to be the cause. Garison must go back in time once again and keep himself from making the original trip that started the problem. But he can’t use his time machine to go back. How does one sew up a rip in time?





Lost Time

Jason Kerrigan and Brownwyn Dalmouth are pilots with the Republic of Texas Army Air Corps. A world war is going on and bombs have just brought an end to Crockett Air Field in south Texas. Jason and Bronwyn, though, are called away from the battle to be test pilots for a new aircraft that-they're told-will bring the war to an end. The experimental craft lives up to expectations in early tests, but then it lands them somewhere it never should have sent them. Another place? Another time? Another dimension? Somehow, they've taken a trip to the future and changed the past. Or did they? The answer to their change of reality may be known to a Justice of the Peace in Colorado named Garison Fitch. To figure it out, though, Garison may have to team up with his least favorite person: Bat Garrett.



Excerpt:


He was disturbed from his reverie by a voice saying, "Feet up."
It took a moment for the voice to register on him at all and he raised his head with a, "Huh?"
The sun was behind the source of the voice and cast a halo through the speaker's blonde hair and placed her entirely in silhouette.  With a broom, she repeated in a pleasant tone, "Feet up.  I'm trying to sweep."
"Uh, OK," Garison mumbled as he lifted his feet.  She stepped a bit to his left just then and he got a look at her face.  It was a pretty face, with pale, blemish free skin and deep green eyes.  She wore a smile that was pleasant to look at and warming in its touch.
She said, "I don't believe I've seen you around here, Stranger."
"Uh, no.  I'm from—I'm from out of town."
She looked at him and smiled genuinely.  She asked, "Whereabouts?  We don't get many visitors around here."
"La Plata Canyon," he replied instinctively.
She thought a moment, then told him, "I've never heard of it.  Is it near Boston? or down in the Carolinas?"
"Neither, really," Garison replied with a sigh.  Finally, she had mentioned places he had heard of, though he knew the Carolinas as Stalinland.  "Carolinas" was a name belonging to the old British Americas.  Had he perhaps landed in an alternate reality where the British Americas hadn't fallen to the Russians?  That still wouldn't explain the lack of telephones, he thought sullenly.  To finish the answer to her question, he said, "It's out in Marx—on the other side of the Rocky Mountains from Cherry Creek."
She shrugged and shook her head, "I'm afraid I've never heard of those places.  And here I thought I knew my geography quite well.  What with studying maps and—" she stopped as if she had been about to say something she would rather not be known.
It suddenly occurred to Garison to ask, "Tell me something, why are you talking to me?"  She looked unreasonably hurt by the question and he quickly added, "I mean, no one else will.  How come?"
"How come they won't or how come I will?"
"Either.  Be kind of nice to have an answer to something, even that."
