Timely Persuasion
A Rock & Roll Time Travel Tale

Timely Persuasion follows an anonymous music critic on a quest to save his sister from the relationship that ended her life. Our hero uses his musical knowledge to “blink” through the years attempting to keep the couple apart by any means necessary. But is her husband Nelson really to blame?

 

Along the way he launches a new folk rock star, accidentally restructures his family tree, and finds that correlation and causation are not always what they seem. This story defies genre conventions while paying tribute to the classic time travel tales that came before it.

A world that is more than just the title of a Pixies song in need of disambiguation.
