And now on to the author I'm hosting today:
IntroHello, Book Hunters! Expiration Day isn't an action novel. Sorry. On the other hand, it does have serious levels of Rock'n'Roll and a dramatic court scene. Tania isn't an athletic heroine, either, preferring to play bass with her band, or else to curl up in the big reading chair in the spare room, reading a treasured book. But I did wonder what would happen if she ended up in physical danger. After all, the world of 2049 isn't a nice place, though she's living in one of the more civilised spots. It's definitely not all sweetness beyond her village, though, and in England there are many places that the rule of law doesn't reach. These are the Red Zones, and in the earlier drafts of the novel, back when it was still called 'A Child Alone', I had Tania visit a Red Zone twice. The first time she made contact with an 'underground' organisation, that she hoped might give her refuge. That scene got re-worked quite a bit, moving from London to Oxford in the process, and re-surfaced here , where you'll find other bonus content. This second scene is unique to the YA Scavenger Hunt, and fits around that court scene, where Tania sees that the case is going against her, and decides to flee. She contacts the 'underground' and arranges to meet the woman she knows as Marla ...
The hunt is over, bonus content has been deleted.
Thank you so much for visiting me. There's a special short story from the Aether Chronicles world hidden someplace. (Hit hint, it's about love, and it's not about Noli and V.) The books in my Aether Chronicle's series -- INNOCENT DARKNESS, CHARMED VENGEANCE, and FRAGILE DESTINY are all available from Flux. Please enter my bonus contest where I have 6 prizes up for grabs.
All done? Time to move on to Kady Cross. Don't forget to bring her a cupcake.
