Blog Tour: 15 Minutes by Jill Cooper – Guest Post and Giveaway

Welcome to our Tour Stop for

15 Minutes by Jill Cooper

presented by AToMR Tours!


I have 15 minutes to save my mother’s life….

15 minutes is all the Rewind Agency gives you in the past, but for Lara Crane it’s enough time to race through the city, find her mother, and stop her from being killed in a mugging that happened over ten years ago.

But that’s not how it happened. The story she’s been told all her life is a lie and when Lara takes a bullet meant for her mother, her future changes forever.

The love of her life acts like a stranger. Her simple life is replaced with a giant house, glamorous clothes and a new boyfriend. 

Except someone knows her secret. And he will try to stop her at every turn as she races against the clock to unravel a dangerous conspiracy.

15 Minutes is an edgy high octane YA thriller that can be described as Back to the Future meets Inception where the people Lara trusts change in an instant. She is in a timeline she doesn’t understand, and is about to make one fatal mistake as she faces an enemy so familiar, he’s family.

The Writer’s Cave


Writers Cave 2

A lot of writers write in trendy places, you’ve probably seen them talking about writing at Panera Bread or Starbucks. Some writers are lucky enough to have a private office shut off from the world, but I write at the kitchen table.

Writers Cave

I’m a stay at home Mom to a 3 year old girl, and when she’s not in preschool or off in summer camp, she is my top priority which means my laptop has to be easily accessible. So when I am making dinner, or cleaning the house, I can always see it. I can stop for a few minutes to write or jot down some new ideas.

Behind me the dishwasher is churning, beside me are the rows of cereal and just off my work area, is the living room where toys are beeping and the television sings a song about Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, but it’s hard to want to change a lick of it. After all, one day she’ll grow up. One day she won’t be here anymore.

So for now, I make sacrifices. And even if part of me wishes I was trendy and carting off somewhere to be alone, instead I write a few sentences, and wipe mustard dribbles off her chin. Trying to cherish those small little moments, instead of allowing them to drive me batty. At least I can be successful—part of the time.



I could write this in the third person. I could tell you what I like, where I was born, and what my favorite things are.

But instead, I’ll say I don’t want to write like everyone else. I don’t want to craft stories you’ve read a thousand times before. I want my novels to be a cinematic experience, blending themes, genres, and situations unlike any you’ve ever read. 

I want to break the rules. I want you to break out in a cold sweat as you read my books out of fear, love, and excitement. I want my books to be an experience. When you finish, I want you to feel something. Good or bad.

If you do, then I’ll have succeeded. If not, I’ll keep trying.
