The Great Time Lock Disaster

Today we're celebrating the launch of a new book by C. Lee McKenzie! Check it out!

There's nothing’s more dangerous than a wizard-in-training. And Pete Riley, has just proven it. He's worked a bad time spell--a very bad time spell.

No YouTube, no smoothies, no Manga. Not ever again. Not unless Pete figures out how to reverse his spell and free Weasel and him from Victorian England. 

He has until the next full moon. Only a few days.

Tick. Tock.

Here’s how the story starts, and it only gets worse.

One minute the clock was tick-tocking on the mantel and the next it was a smoldering mess.

“No,” Harriet shouted. Then she braced one hand on her desk and covered her eyes with the other.

Pete froze, not blinking, not breathing, but waiting to see if Harriet would point one of her long, bony fingers at him and turn him into a turnip or something slimy.

To celebrate the launch of The Great Time Lock Disaster I'm giving 20 eBooks away. Hope you'll jump in to the copter and go for a ride!

Usually, C. Lee takes on modern issues that today's teens face in their daily lives. Her first young adult novel, Sliding on the Edge, which dealt with cutting and suicide was published in 2009. Her second, titled The Princess of Las Pulgas, dealing with a family who loses everything and must rebuild their lives came out in 2010. Double Negative (2014) was her third young adult novel. Researching it turned her into a literacy advocate. Her fourth YA, Sudden Secrets came out in December 2014. 

When she really want to have FUN, she writes middle grade books. Alligators Overhead and The Great Time Lock Disaster are now available.


  1. Congrats Lee! Sounds like some creepy fun. :)

  2. I love stories about wizards! This one sounds exciting. Congrats to C Lee! :D

  3. This one came out of left field for me. I had no idea Lee was putting out another book. (And how I feel bashfully out of the loop.) Regardless, I think it sounds awesome.

    1. And here I thought you knew everything. Maybe if I put cheese in the title?

  4. Congratulations, Lee! I loved the beginning - totally fun and engaging! Made me want to read more, without a doubt :)

    1. Those beginnings are the hardest to get right. Hope I got this one right. Thanks for the comment.

  5. Hi Sarah and thanks to you as well. Great to be here.
