Check it out, in all of its glory, here! #NEMESIS #GENESIS #CarveTheMark #TheFatesDivide…

GENESIS RECEIVES A STARRED REVIEW FROM KIRKUS!!!

YO! THIS IS AMAZING. Following in the footsteps of #Nemesis, the sequel #Genesis has also been given a ⭐️ STARRED REVIEW ⭐️ by Kirkus. I am VERY EXCITE. MUCH EXCITE. SO BIG EXCITE. You can read the entire review here on the Kirkus website and an excerpt below (I only took out a line of plot explanation that was a touch spoiler-ish for readers who haven’t yet finished Nemesis): KIRKUS REVIEW Noah Livingston and Min Wilder rage against the machine. The star-crossed lovers have been separated by betrayal and despair in this sequel to Nemesis (2017)…. [C]haos reigns as different factions squabble over supplies and territory. The Program’s environment is the small isolated mountain town where the teenagers grew up. This grounded setting is a blessing to the novel, a stuffed tome with a turning wheel of power structures that endlessly entertains. Each time a teen is killed they reset in…

Genesis Cover Reveal on USA Today’s Happy Ever After Blog!

The cover is here! Plus some sneaky #Genesis book info, the sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller #Nemesis. Releases 3/6/18! Check it out. Can the Fire Lake sophomore class survive in a world without consequences? Noah Livingston knows he is destined to survive. The 64 members of Fire Lake’s sophomore class are trapped in a place where morals have no meaning and zero rules apply. But Noah’s deaths have trained him–hardened him–to lead the strongest into the future … whatever that may be. And at any cost. Min Wilder knows that survival alone isn’t enough. In a violent world where brute force passes for leadership, it’s tempting to lay back and let everyone else battle it out. But Min’s instincts rebel against allowing others to decide who lives and who dies. She’s ready to fight for what she believes in. And against whomever might stand in her way. Lord of the Flies meets …
