Giveaway Interview THE LOCKET by AMANDA TRU @TruAmanda

Yesterday Locket Tour



Her yesterday was five years ago. What will her tomorrow bring?

When HANNAH KRAEGER saves a family injured in a car accident, she has no idea she has changed events in the past. Waking the next morning, Hannah discovers her yesterday was really five years ago.

Each trip Hannah takes through time changes the timeline and her own life. With help from DR. SETH MCALLISTER, Hannah must unravel the mystery of why she time travels and who she actually is before the strange ability costs her future, the man she loves, and even her life.

YESTERDAY is a thrilling Christian Romantic Suspense filled with unexpected twists, mystery, and romance.


The Locket

Hannah suddenly finds that she has time travelled once again, but this time is different. After helping save a woman's life, Hannah discovers that she has completely altered the timeline and thrown her very existence into jeopardy.

Facing life-threatening effects upon returning to her own time, Hannah is then given a death sentence: if she time travels again, she will die. Now, Hannah must solve the clues to her own identity and find a way to save her own life before she is once again sent spiraling through time.

Will her mother's locket hold the key to both her past and her future? Has she just found the love of her life only to lose him? Could God have a plan for Hannah amidst the chaos?

Author Amanda Tru

Although I loved my job as an elementary school teacher, I am now very blessed to be mommy to three adorable little boys and living my dream of being an author.
I have a vivid imagination and have always been easily entertained by the stories in my head. Fortunately, I also love to paint those pictures with words. I like writing a wide variety of genres, and my current book list includes everything from a Christian time travel / romance series, to an action-packed suspense, to a romance involving a woman who likes to anonymously play matchmaker.

Although I enjoy historical, Christian, paranormal, suspense, and everything in between, my books all have one thing in common--I love to surprise my readers with the unexpected. I currently have 7 books available for kindle, nook, and paperback.

My family and I live in a small Idaho town where the number of cows outnumbers the number of people.


1.      What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?

“Round is a Pancake.”  It’s a silly little rhyming book, but I remember being so proud that I could read it myself.  I was born with an eye condition that required several surgeries.  Because of that, doctors were concerned that I might have difficulty learning to read.  My parents made a concerted effort to read to me and instill a love of books.  I was reading before I entered kindergarten.

2.      What are you reading right now?
Other than my Bible and a zillion children’s books that I read to my kids, I don’t get a lot of time to read anything but my own writing.  I am currently reading a new release by my friend and author, Samantha Bayarr.  At the top on my list of pleasure reading when I do have any relaxation time, is a few books by Julie Klassen and Karen Whitemeyer.
3.      How does your garden grow?

 With writing stories, and little boy glories, and curly heads all in a row. 
(My life is filled by three, blond-curly headed little boys by day and writing by night.)

4.      What is the last thing you Googled?
I googled coupon codes for a website I was purchasing summer crocs for my son.  I’m a little OCD about online shopping and finding a good deal!  I google everything!
5.  What makes you cringe?

Spiders, snakes, the list of my most embarrassing moments that replays through my mind, grinding teeth (my baby is currently getting a full set), and a sappy ending to a book.

  1. I love the idea of a locket - romantic, mysterious. Sounds like an excellent read.

  2. Amanda. I love the question the last thing you googled; and I am guessing it would be the hardest to answer because I google everything:)
    I also cringe over all my embarrassing moments that still run through my head from years ago or the last 24 hours:)
    LOVE your books. ALL of them. You are one of the reasons I always give a 'new to me' author a chance. Keep up the great work. Donna

  3. Awww! Thanks, Donna! Yes, I'm afraid Google is one of my BFF's. We get along so well and she does a lot of my thinking for me! ;)


Thanks for leaving a note! I try to reply to all conversations!
