Time Kill - Travis W. Marsh

Military-trained special operative Derend Brackson, and his technically minded mission controller Fritz, are part of a top secret government project that alters the past in order to improve the future. Eliminating individuals responsible for tragic events, Derend does the dirty work while Fritz mans the machine that makes it all possible. But with their latest mission assignment, Derend's discovery of the target makes him question the entire purpose of the project. And by doing so, he begins to reveal a much darker plan for the project that reaches far beyond he and his mission controller.


Travis W. Marsh is a Portland, Maine native with a background in art, graphic design, photography, video/film production and broadcasting. You can read his blog and find him on Twitter.

Q: What will readers like about your book?

TIMEKILL is an engaging, fast-paced, action/adventure/thriller/mystery all wrapped into one. With some moral and ethical dilemmas thrown in, I try to design all of my stories to be appealing to a wide variety of readers. While it is categorized as science-fiction, many readers who are not science-fiction fans have told me they really enjoyed reading TIMEKILL—and I take that as a huge compliment.

Q: Why did you self publish?

The world of digital downloading (whether it’s music, TV shows, movies, and now books), is a game changer, and being a technologist, I love being on the cutting edge. Because TIMEKILL is shorter in length than a standard novel, I knew it didn’t have much of a place in the traditional publishing process. So, it became my chance to venture into the self-publishing world via Kindle. And, now that I have done it and experienced the ease and its potential raw power (i.e., Amanda Hocking), I will very likely be using the Kindle self-publishing technology for my full length novels as well.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

Ever since being a little kid I have always loved Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. They were two of my favorites while growing up and I and am still a huge admirer of theirs today. I have many of their works proudly lined up on my bookshelf. Their involvement of neat technology woven into compelling stories is something I always had fun reading, and is very much what I try to accomplish with my stories, TIMEKILL being one of them.
