Summer, Luck and the Dystopian Future

Today is the first day of summer in our house, but before I dash off to enjoy the sun with the kids, I have a couple of fun things for you.

Unless you’ve been living on a different planet, you’ve may have noticed the rise in dystopian fiction. One of my critique partners pointed out this great article in the New Yorker about what’s behind the rise. If you’re a fan of the genre or you just enjoy reading it, you should check out the article.

And now, I know what you really want to find out is who won the Basket of Luck…

Congratulations, Marissa!! Email me at solvangsherrie at gmail dot com with your snail mail address and I will send some luck your way!

Have a great weekend everyone!
