A Review for Time To Lie: Did I Create “Dude Lit”?

Here is a funny review that came in on Amazon yesterday:

The Master of “Dude-Lit” Tackles Time Travel and Wins!

I’ve been a fan of Phil Taylor since reading his first two novels. If there were such a thing as “dude-lit” – this guy is the master. I bought Time to Lie without knowing anything about it. What a great read! I am a huge fan of time travel books so this was right up my alley. Plus he puts in enough references to other time travel so that geeks like me can enjoy that along with his completely original concept. I can’t wait to see where Landon heads next in this chronicle of stories! ~Gregory G. Allen

“Dude-Lit”? That’s funny. We’ve all heard of “Chick Lit” from authors like Janet Evanovich and Nicholas Sparks. Apparently my books have created the new genre of #DudeLit.  I may not be on the Amazon bestseller list yet, but if I’ve created a whole genre of literature, I’m pretty happy with that accomplishment.

Actually, I’d like to thank friend, actor, and author Gregory G. Allen for coining the phrase Dude- Lit and applying it to my books in his review. Gregory G. Allen is an award-winning author of three novels, one non-fiction memoir, and two children’s books on autism awareness – the first of which won the People’s Choice Grand Prize Award in the 2012 MeeGenius! Author Challenge. He’s also a blogger. You can read his blog here. He has been in the entertainment business for over twenty five years as an actor, director, producer, songwriter, playwright, screenwriter, and author. His short film MOTHER won several awards on the festival circuit in 2015.  Greg is a really great writer and an even better human. Go check out his books on Amazon.

Have a great Friday! ~Phil
