5 Stars: The Unlived Life of Max (“Life II” Time Travel Book)

Terrific review!  I liked this part: I remember riding on my teacher's motorcycle from Dobbs Ferry to New York City July 4th weekend ( 1985) to watch "Back to the Future" I was blown away by the concept of Marty going back in time incidental endangering his very own existence. What makes that movie a perfect screenplay, plot diagram, and enjoyable on repeat viewing is that it sets up the rules without too much complication or technobabble. Life II by Scott Spotson works because the rules are simple. One can only travel back during their lifetime, not into the future.

Fresh Revamp of “Life II”

A limited, and surgical but effective, revamp of Life II, my debut novel, is ready and available on all the major retailer channels for on-line books.   If you supply me with proof of purchase prior to the date of this posting (like an electronic screen shot of your purchase of Life II on Amazon or Kobo) I will be happy to gift you the new version, for free!  (of course, within reasonable limits, i.e. the first 100 or so, if my anticipation of the demand is way off multi-fold). What's different this time you may ask?  Well, Max is now an enterprising stock investor, relying...
