A Writer's Thanksgiving & Get Your Beacon On

A shorter post than usual post this week, because I'm over at Untethered Realms sharing all the things I'm thankful for as a writer. Drop by and share what makes you thankful during this American holiday or any other time of the year.

The insanely talented and always cool, Angela Brown has launched another book baby into the world - YA dystopian, Beacon, published by Evernight Teen. Congratulations, Angela! As she so aptly put it in her recent blog post, get your Beacon on.

Ripped Ties, 1
Tsunamis reduced the USA into a shell of itself, called The Fold. Surviving humans and vampires joined forces to form The Colony, where registered citizens do as they're told. 
They donate blood quarterly and dream of being chosen as Attendees for the Jubilee celebrations, that is, everyone except Macie Breen. With high school graduation near, she’s anxious to ditch the rules in hopes of starting a new life with Thane, an unregistered and also her best friend.  
Her hopes fizzle when Macie is selected as an Attendee, forever registered. Any future with Thane…impossible. Being chosen comes with another unexpected price.  
Truths about The Colony blaze into ashes and lies when she discovers the vampires haven't kept their part of the bargain. Worst still, Macie’s life unravels as her stint in the city of Bliss forces her to face daunting truths about who, and what, she really is.
