An Interview with Author Katie Lynn Daniels

Pirate Shishkabob CoverJust recently, we found out about a great picture book by new author Katie Lynn Daniels. Katie was gracious enough to agree to do an e-mail interview with us.

Incredibooks: First off, tell us a little bit about your new book.

An Interview with Author Amanda L. Davis

Precisely Terminated CoverAmanda L. Davis is the daughter of one of our favorite authors, Bryan Davis. Her debut novel Precisely Terminated has been on our radar ever since we heard about it, and we can’t wait to get our hands on a copy. We recently caught up with Amanda for an e-mail interview.

Incredibooks: First off, tell us a little bit about your debut book.

Amanda Davis: Precisely Terminated is a futuristic dystopian novel. I’ll give you the summary. :-)

It is 800 years in the future, and the world is being oppressed by the ruling class. Millions of slaves toil under the Nobles’ oppressive thumb, but because of microchips implanted in the slaves’ skulls at birth, there can be no uprising.

Precisely Terminated is the first book of three in the Cantral Chronicles. Read the rest of this entry »

Incredibooks: First off, tell us a little bit about your debut book.

Aubrey Hansen: Red Rain is a sci-fi drama about a girl and her quest to find the last Bible in the galaxy. When a computer virus deletes all the Bibles, 17-year-old Philadelphia hopes her deceased brother left a copy behind on Mars. But when her searches lead her into a secret hallway, Philadelphia disturbs a project that threatens to destroy her family and Earth. The book was inspired by the question “What if there were no Bibles left on Earth – none? What if the last copy was hiding on Mars?” Read the rest of this entry »
