About the book!

Expected Publish date

Author's summary: Regret was for people with nothing to defend, people who had no water.

Lynn knows every threat to her pond: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and, most importantly, people looking for a drink. She makes sure anyone who comes near the pond leaves thirsty, or doesn't leave at all.

Confident in her own abilities, Lynn has no use for the world beyond the nearby fields and forest. Having a life means dedicating it to survival, and the constant work of gathering wood and water. Having a pond requires the fortitude to protect it, something Mother taught her well during their quiet hours on the rooftop, rifles in hand.

But wisps of smoke on the horizon mean one thing: strangers. The mysterious footprints by the pond, nighttime threats, and gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won’t stop until they get it….

With evocative, spare language and incredible drama, danger, and romance, debut author Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl’s journey in a barren world not so different than our own.

Awesome vlog. I loved hearing how Mindy's road to publication went. It was interesting that the agent search went so much faster than the publisher part of the journey.

I can't wait to read this book. Such a unique premise. Thanks for the giveaway.

Alba - I honestly have read everything Stephen King has written. It took awhile. THE STAND is his best. That book will be read generations from now.

Unknown said...

Wonderful VLog, I enjoy the insight to the author. The book sounds intriguing and hopefully it maintains that semblance of mystery throughout, I added it to my TBR list, can't wait to read it.

The "Hi Mindys" were so cute. I found the vlog really interactive and the author seems really approachable. Plus the convo was nice and clear and easy to follow.

Mary Preston said...

I enjoyed the vlog thank you. Most informative.

Ana LucĂ­a said...

Both Mindys too cute. I like that is a stand-alone but the world can strech for more, I love when authors do that :D
The book sounds great with that cover, perfect. Badass character, I'm sold!

Great vlog, it feels so interactive, well done ;)

Unknown said...

Loved the vlog! This book sounds great; I'm not gonna lie - it being a standalone is one of the best reasons I'm adding it to my TBR not to mention the confident leading lady!

christina said...

This book sounds really good. I think it's going to find it's way to the top of my to-read list very quickly.
