#BlogTour #Guestpost Wide Awake Asleep by Louise Wise

I am very pleased to have been asked to be involved with the blog tour for Louise Wise’s new book Wide Awake Asleep.

Thank you to Rachel (@rararesources) for asking to me to be involved in the tour and to Louise (@louise_wise) for supplying the guest post.


Can you really be on the WRONG path in life?

No one knew she was driving on that stretch of road. No one saw her car leave the highway and crash into a watery ditch. No one heard the car’s windscreen smash or saw the tree branch come through to impale her to her seat. No one heard her screams.

Julie Compton’s life should have come to an end that day, but instead, that moment was the beginning of her new life as she wakes, unharmed, back in 1972 and primed to relive her traumatic childhood all over again. One flaw. She’s in the body of a stranger.

Journey back to the 70s and 80s England where Julie is forced to jump through the eras, occupying and controlling other people’s bodies she knew as a child. She must work out which destiny path was the wrong one all while wondering if her body, back in 2016, was dying in her car.

With each momentous change, her memories transform and she realises she’s not only changing her future but of those around her. She’s finally ‘living’ but does that mean she must die?

Is it Fate that Stops us from Developing the Ability to Time Travel?


They say that travelling backwards in time is impossible because of the ‘grandfather paradox’ where if a person traveled into the past and killed their own grandfather before the conception of their mother or father, it would end the time traveler’s existence, therefore the time traveler could not have time-traveled because he or she would have never existed.

That’s the paradox in time travel, apparently.

Maybe that time traveller would fade out as Marty McFly’s siblings faded out in photographs, and indeed, how Marty, himself, began to fade away on stage whilst performing on his guitar (Back to the Future). And as he faded away all memories of him ever existing would vanish from people’s minds.

But… if you could go back, avoiding the paradoxes of time, each little change you make will create a ripple until it’s HUGE back in your present time.

Let’s just think about that for a moment:

You flunked your maths exam at school and ended up not in the job you wanted, until you decided to take yourself back to school to study, and gaining qualifications late in life. You can now do the job you set out to do, but is it too late?

You’re approaching middle-aged and employers want fresh-faced people, don’t they? But you’ve the maturity and experience to easily roll over those fresh-faced, still wet-behind-the-ears youngsters to do the job in hand, but all those years wasted… what would happen if you could go back, knowing what you know now, and change all that? Would you? Or rather, should you knowing that all you have now could change.

Your life partner, your children, your friends, could all become strangers, or worse, not exist.

I believe it’s fate that keeps moving us forward, and fate that keeps us from developing time travel, because how many times have you said, or heard it being said, ‘Fate brought us together.’ ‘Fate caused it.’ ‘It’s written in the stars that this/that would happen.’ ‘It’s destiny.’

Call ‘it’ what you like, fate is a powerful force that keeps driving us forward.

Unfortunately, for Julie Compton in my book Wide Awake Asleep, fate messed up and had no choice but to send her back in time to the 70s and 80s to correct an error that had her following the wrong destiny for most of her life.

If she changed the path, to what degree would her future change?

About the Author

Louise Wise is a British writer and has been weaving stories all her life—and for many years, she was a ‘closet writer’ with a cupboard full of ageing manuscripts depicting fantastical romantic adventures!

Most of her books have an element of romance, but tend to cross over into other genres, giving them a unique edge.

Her debut novel is the best-selling sci-fi romance EDEN, which was followed by its sequel HUNTED in 2013.

A PROPER CHARLIE is a romantic comedy written purely for the chick lit market, but then she decided to unite her love of all things supernatural with romance and OH NO, I’VE FALLEN IN LOVE and WIDE AWAKE ASLEEP came along.

Her other works include SCRUFFY TRAINERS (a collection of short stories with a twist). She has written numerous short stories for women’s magazines including Women’s Own and Take a Break.

She loves hearing from her readers – the good, the bad and the ugly stuff they want to share!
