Grey Damon as Gabe from In Time
I feel like In Time does not get enough credit, I don’t know if everyone’s not reading it because they are unaware of it or because it’s a novella but it all about the amazing Zu and how she turns Gabe’s life around. You get a much better look at the everyday world in TDM, the world the adults are left in and how they deal and survive. And in true Alexandra Bracken style she takes a character you can’t stand and by the end you end up loving them. I’m hoping it will have some impacts on In The Afterlight
Gabe!! To date, this is still one of my favorite things I’ve ever written, and he’s absolutely one of my favorite characters in their world. Thank you for showing him some (much needed!) love.
(By the way, a few more of the foreign publishers have acquired this and are working on translating it. I’m still trying to figure out a solution to getting the English language version available to the rest of the world—I haven’t forgotten, I promise!)
What new books are you looking forward to reading? We need some ideas!
Sometimes I get an itty bit irked when I hear someone crit a novella and it sounds like this: “I wish this story had more setting and character development and a bigger plot.”
That’s when I want to say: “So…you wanted it to be a novel.”
Or when a book is…
We are SO EXCITED for Through the Woods, by Emily Carroll, a collection of short stories, all scary, with a decided fairy tale inspiration out in July 2014.
Here’s a glimpse of a few of the pages!

I’d already contributed a story, but I felt like I could do a little more. So many people in my life struggle with mental health issues, and, for once, I have a skill set that can actually help.
