Guest Post: Tips for Surviving your Time Travel Adventure | Review: A Wagon Train Weekend by Stephenia H. McGee

Guest Post by Stephenia H. McGee


Tips for Surviving your Time Travel Adventure

Have you suddenly found yourself stranded in an era not your own? Did you book a room at a mysterious bed and breakfast, expecting an old-fashioned room and a hot meal, only to find yourself transported to a different time?

This handy little guide will help you anticipate some of the more jarring aspects of your trip.

  1. There are no cell phones. Depending on your particular time location, you will need to conduct all communications by letter, calling card, carrier pigeon, or face-to-face interactions. Some trips are equipped with telephone services, but can only be accessed through available land lines. Consider this a great time to disconnect and work on anemic people skills!

  2. Bathroom facilities can vary wildly. To best prepare, don’t expect hot water unless it comes from a pot heated over a fire. Showers, in almost all cases, are nonexistent. But don’t worry. Hats are provided to cover dirty hair and scented handkerchiefs help you avoid the smells of others.

  3. The people around you may exhibit wildly different mannerisms than you are used to. Try to keep an open mind about attire, idioms, and customs. When in doubt, try to blend in as much as possible. 

  4. Modes of transportation. For most adventures, you will not be equipped with motorized vehicles. Be prepared to travel by animal or by foot. In most cases, horses will be the most common means of travel. If you are afraid of horses, we suggest locating a comfortable pair of shoes as soon as possible.

  5. To avoid such mishaps as public panic and possible time in an asylum, it is best to refrain from informing those around you that you have traveled from the future.

Finally, keep in mind that should you wish to return to your time of origin, you will need to figure out why you got sent back in time in the first place. Lessons will vary from traveler to traveler, but in order to get your ticket home, you’ll need to make certain discoveries in relation to your own personal hang-ups, expectations, or character flaws. Should you fail, we hope you enjoy your new home.

Good luck and happy travels!

About the book:

It was just one night at a Victorian B&B. Until they woke up in 1857.

Collette Donaldson never should have taken her boyfriend to her cousin’s wedding. Or introduced him to her parents. After a disastrous weekend, all she wants is to get back home and sort out the mess that had once been their relationship. A heartbreaking fight, a flat tire, and an inconvenient storm force her and Seth to stay the night at a quaint bed and breakfast. But when Collette finds an antique photograph of herself, circumstances quickly shift from weird to unimaginable.

Seth Stone was ready to propose. Now he isn’t sure if he and Collette even have a relationship. People he'd never want to be his in-laws, an irritable girlfriend, and now he has to spend the night in a creepy old Victorian inn. He should have never wondered how things could possibly get worse. When they wake up stranded on a wagon train in 1857, Seth is determined to get home. But the only way to get out of the past is to face the problems stealing their future.

Available now in kindle and kindle unlimited, paperback, and audio.

My thoughts:

A Wagon Train Weekend is the first book I've read by this author, but I'm excited to read more. This story, while short, was SO good. I wasn't too sure how I would like the whole time travel aspect, but I think it was very well done. 

I really liked the characters. It was great to see how their relationship was tested throughout this story and the ending was perfect. I also enjoyed the wagon train aspect - that was interesting. ;)

All in all, A Wagon Train Weekend was a great read and I recommend it. I can't wait to read the next one!
