Things have been a little slow for me recently. Now I am feeling more free and motivated to continue working on my next novel. (Still no working title yet.)

I really want this book to be more of a thriller. Of course the story is set in a dystopian world, but I feel like I need more than just an awesome universe.

Many of the dystopian books I've read are interesting because of the unique scenarios characters are put in. But the writing can be slow moving so illustrate the authors literary agenda. I enjoy reading these books but I'm just not that kind of author. I like high stakes and fast action, so, I'm going to be doing some research into thriller novels to learn just how to bring some of that adrenaline into dystopia.

Any suggestions? What are some books you've read that get your heart pumping?

Stop #2 On The Blog Tour

Today I am providing a giveaway for my second stop on my blog book tour. The blog is appropriately called "Candace's Book Blog".

The giveaway is being posted at 3PM PST, and it closes on October 14th, so I thought I'd give all my readers a heads-up.

THE CAUSE has been published for about two months now and I have been pleasantly surprised with how well it's been received. I've been making a steady incline toward the top 100 best sellers on Amazon.com. I still have a ways to go, so tell everyone you know about THE CAUSE. Write a review, post the book trailer on Facebook, tell your friends about the giveaway. As an indi-author, I need all the help I can get.
