Mad World reviews and an interview

Hey all, a wonderful fan from the UK has reviewed Tunnelville (Mad World, Book 2) and interviewed Erin and me. Check out her site A Simple Book Blog From A Simple Reader!

Spoiler alert: she gives Tunnelville 4 out of 5 stars and mentions how much she hates one of our characters (in a good way!)

Here’s an excerpt: “Max, though. Max. I’m not sure about Max. He reminded me a little of a wet fish. I liked his voice and everything, and he interacted well, but he wasn’t as interesting as Astrid. I think its just a preference thing, but I wanted to slap him a few times, but that’s a good thing if you look at it from an optimists point of view, it means he’s lifelike and causes reactions.”

I got interviewed!

This was a fun first for me. I’d like to share an interview Erin and I did with Roberta at Offbeat YA, a great blog about young adult books. She’s read and reviewed Wakefield (Mad World, Book 1) and Tunnelville (Mad World, Book 2) and asked us if we wouldn’t mind answering some questions about the writing process and our thoughts on some of the characters.

Free sample chapters

Hey all, wanted to let you know that thanks to Erin’s PDF skills, we have the first two chapters of the paranormal Young Adult Tunnelville (Mad World, Book 1) now available at Mad World Headquarters.

Note that this is highly spoilerific for those of you who haven’t checked out Wakefield (Mad World, Book 1) yet. If you’re still on the fence, I’ll remind you that we have the first three chapters of Wakefield at MadWorld.com.


Tunnelville at Amazon and Barnes

Okay, so apparently when I said Tunnelville (Mad World, Book 2) was available exclusively at MuseItUp Publishing, that was only true for a couple hours. That’s what I get for making the announcement at 2 AM.

So yes, you can read the further adventures of Team Orphan at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, with other retailers coming quite soon.

And for those of you wondering, Mad World, Book Three is coming along nicely. The first draft is basically done. Title and other pertinent info coming soonish (let’s be honest, it’ll probably be in several months). In the meantime, check out Tunnelville‘s Goodreads page and let us know what you think by rating and reviewing.


Tunnelville (Mad World, Book Two) released!

Good news, everyone, the sequel to Wakefield is now ready for you to read and enjoy. Right now the ebook is being sold exclusively at this link at MuseItUp Publishing, and it will be added to major retailers (like Amazon and Barnes & Noble, etc.) shortly.

And I already made a page for it on Goodreads, where you can add it to your bookshelf and eventually comment/rate it, so check it out.

Tunnelville 333x500

Blurb: Following their panicked escape from Wakefield, Astrid Chalke, Max Fisher, and their friends find themselves adrift and on the run in western Massachusetts. After picking up a young thief with a complex philosophy, and dealing with the pains of prescription drug withdrawal, they make their way to Boston.

Drained by a long trek to the city, the damaged teens settle in an underground tunnel community—a city below the city that appears to lie on the fringes of both the world above and the world of magic. Among the eccentric tunnel folk, they encounter the fabulous Angie DeVille, a self-made hipster and socialite who takes them under her neon wing and envelops them in her breathless and fast paced life.

Funded by a seemingly ruthless organization, the relentless Dr. Lycen is tasked to hunt down the Wakefield escapees. But as Astrid and Max eke out a meager existence in their new home and do their best to stay off Dr. Lycen’s radar, they learn that new and even more harrowing threats might be lurking just over the horizon.
