New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Elle Casey – Apocalypsis Book 1: Kahayatle

My name’s Bryn Mathis. I’m seventeen years old, and I live in a neighborhood outside of Orlando, Florida. I live alone because my dad died almost a year ago, along with all the other adults in the world. I’m almost out of food and the gangs of kids that roam around my town are getting more vicious by the day.

It’s time for me to leave and find another place to live … a place where I can find food and shelter … a place where they won’t be able to find me.

Alone, it might have been possible; but now I’ve got company. I’m worried that I don’t have what it takes to get from here to my final destination.

And I have no idea what might be waiting for me when I get there.

**May not be suitable for younger, middle grade readers.**

Shalini Boland – Outside

A post-apocalyptic romance thriller.

The world of the future is divided by Perimeters: high-security gated communities where life goes on as normal. If you’re inside you’re lucky, if you’re outside life expectancy takes a nose dive.

Riley is fortunate to have been born on the right side of the fence. But her life of privilege comes crashing down when someone breaks through the Perimeter and murders her sister. She forsakes her own safety to go in search of the killer. Luc decides to go with her otherwise she’ll be dead before she’s past the security gate. But what awaits her outside is more unbelievable than she ever expected.

Cut to the present day where Eleanor’s world is falling apart. This time next year, civilisation won’t be quite so civilised . *Suitable for adults and teens aged 13+*

Zoe Cannon – The Torturer’s Daughter

When her best friend Heather calls in the middle of the night, Becca Dalcourt assumes it’s the usual drama. Wrong. Heather’s parents have been arrested as dissidents – and Becca’s mother, the dystopian regime’s most infamous torturer, has already executed them for their crimes against the state.

To stop Heather from getting herself killed trying to prove her parents’ innocence, Becca hunts for proof of their guilt. She doesn’t expect to find evidence that leaves her questioning everything she thought she knew about the dissidents… and about her mother.

When she risks her life to save a dissident, she learns her mother isn’t the only one with secrets – and the plot she uncovers will threaten the lives of the people she loves most. For Becca, it’s no longer just a choice between risking execution and ignoring the regime’s crimes; she has to decide whose life to save and whose to sacrifice.

It’s easy to be a hero when you can save the world, but what about when all you can do is choose how you live in it? An Amazon dystopian bestseller, The Torturer’s Daughter is a story about ordinary life amidst the realities of living under an oppressive regime… and the extraordinary courage it takes to do what’s right in a world gone wrong.

Scott Cramer – Night of the Purple Moon

Abby, 13, is looking forward to watching the moon turn purple, unaware that deadly bacteria from a passing comet will soon kill off older teens and adults. She must help her brother and baby sister survive in this new world, but all the while she has a ticking time bomb inside of her–adolescence.

*Parental discretion advised for readers 13 and under*

Sarah Dalton – The Blemished 

A beautiful world comes at a price…

In a world filled with stunning clones Mina Hart is Blemished. Her genes are worthless and that takes away her rights: her right to an Education, her right to a normal life and her right to have a child.

Mina keeps a dangerous secret which she never thought she could share until she meets Angela on her first day at St Jude’s School. But their friendship is soon complicated by Angela’s adoptive brother Daniel. Mina finds herself drawn to his mysterious powers and impulsive nature. Then there is the gorgeous clone Sebastian who Mina is forbidden from even speaking to…

The Blemished is a frightening take on a fractured future where the Genetic Enhancement Ministry have taken control of Britain. It will take you on a ride filled with adventure, romance and rebellion.

Book one in the popular YA dystopia series ‘Blemished’.

Katie French – The Breeders 

“When the Breeders come for ya, there ain’t no escape. They strap ya to a bed and all ya hear is the thud of your heart and the cries of your friends as they wheel ya down to hell. Then the doctors come. You squeeze your eyes shut and pray you can forget. But ya never do.”

Sixteen-year-old Riley Meemick is one of the world’s last free girls. When Riley was born, her mother escaped the Breeders, the group of doctors using cruel experiments to bolster the dwindling human race. Her parents do everything possible to keep her from their clutches– moving from one desolate farm after another to escape the Breeders’ long reach. The Breeders control everything- the local war lords, the remaining factories, the fuel. They have unchecked power in this lawless society. And they’re hunting Riley.

When the local Sheriff abducts the adult members of her family and hands her mother over to the Breeders, Riley and her eight-year-old brother, Ethan, hiding in a shelter, are left to starve. Then Clay arrives, the handsome gunslinger who seems determined to help to make up for past sins. The problem is Clay thinks Riley is a bender– a genderless mutation, neither male nor female. As Riley’s affection for Clay grows she wonders can she trust Clay with her secret and risk her freedom?

The three embark on a journey across the scarred remains of New Mexico– escaping the Riders who use human sacrifice to appease their Good Mother, various men scrambling for luck, and a deranged lone survivor of a plague. When Riley is forced into the Breeder’s hospital, she learns the horrible fate of her mother—a fate she’ll share unless she can find a way out.

Zoe Cannon 

Zoe Cannon writes about the things that fascinate her: outsiders, societies no sane person would want to live in, questions with no easy answers, and the inner workings of the mind.

His pursuit of a good story has put him behind the stick of an F-18, flying a Navy Blue Angels’ fighter jet, and he has trekked through the Peruvian mountains in search of an ancient Quechua festival featuring a condor. Scott and his wife have two daughters and reside outside Lowell, Massachusetts (birthplace of Jack Kerouac) in an empty nest/zoo/suburban farm/art studio with too many surfboards in the garage.

Though her social life suffered, her love for literature thrived. She studied English at Eastern Michigan University, where she veered from writing and earned an education degree. She spent nine years teaching high school English. Currently she is a school counselor, doing a job that is both one of the hardest things she’s ever done and the most rewarding.

Best and worst things about being a writer

Being a writer is constantly romanticised on TV. I mean – Castle – come on. Poker games with James Patterson? Flitting around as a detective and yet still having the time to pen bestsellers? Nah! Even Stephen King sits down and reads and/or writers for at least five hours a day. It can be a hard slog. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t any perks…

Best:

  1. You’re the boss! You work when you want. You sleep when you want. You work where you want. Did I mention you’re the boss? No one to tell you what to do. Woohooo… freedom!
  2. Storytelling is cool and creative. I hit keys. They form words. Words make sentences. Sometimes they sound pretty. Sometimes they make people cry or laugh. It’s a nice feeling.
  3. People tell you they love your books! There have been a couple of times that people have told me that the books inspired them in some way. That’s the jackpot right there. It makes everything worthwhile. It makes you feel like you have a career that matters.
  4. Writers are cool people to know. I love working with other writers. It’s amazing when the community comes together to collaborate. I’m all for supporting each other. I’m not for competing against each other.
  5. You get to stay inside when the weather is rubbish. I live in England, so this is like 90% of the time… yeah, I need to get out more!

Worst:

  1. You’re the boss! There ain’t no one else you can blame when things go wrong. You have a lot of responsibility resting on your shoulders. You have to make the right decisions for your business. If you lose money, if you can’t pay rent, you have to fix it.
  2. Storytelling is hard. You have to keep the reader interested for about three hundred pages. You have characters to craft. Sometimes there are sentences that won’t behave themselves and sound convoluted however you write them. There are edits and proofreads and rewrites. It’s not all about writing the first draft. But these things get easier with practice, and there are people to hire, or people to ask for help when you need it.
  3. People tell you they hate your books! It happens to the best of us. I’ve seen one star reviews on Goodreads for writers like Ernest Hemingway and F Scott Fitzgerald. You can’t please everyone. The hate will come. Take it in, then let it go.
  4. Other writers aren’t always supportive. Writing forums can be full of flame wars and endless, circular discussions. It’s easy to get pulled in. Take a step back. Find peers you respect. Don’t get drawn into the negativity that goes on in the murky depths of message boards.
  5. Writing is very sedentary. It involves a lot of sitting down. Most writers I know drink a lot of coffee or munch on biccies to get through a long writing session. Take care of yourselves. Get exercise. I’m incredibly unhealthy right now, but I’m trying to make a change.
