IN THE AFTER – In the Flap

This is the short synopsis that will be inside the flap for In the After…what do you guys think?

attack. not isolated. fate of americans unknown.
Amy is watching TV when it happens, when the world is attacked by Them. These vile creatures are rapidly devouring mankind. Most of the population is overtaken, but Amy manages to survive—and even rescue “Baby,” a toddler she finds in an abandoned supermarket. Marooned in Amy’s house, the girls do everything they can to survive—and avoid Them at all costs.
After years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope, a colony of survivors living in a former government research compound. While at first the colony seems like a dream with plenty of food, safety, and shelter, New Hope slowly reveals that it is far from ideal. And Amy soon realizes that unless things change, she’ll lose Baby—and much more.
Rebellious, courageous, and tender, this unforgettable duo will have you on the edge of your seat as you tear through the pulse-pounding narrow escapes and horrifying twists of fate in this thrilling debut from author Demitria Lunetta.
I’m completely biased, but I love it! I would totally want to read this book…even if I hadn’t written it. J

Have you guys read any compelling book flaps lately that made you absolutely have to read a book?

  2. I love it! It has shades of so many things that draw me in--including a taste of classic sci-fi flavor (even though I'm assuming that Them are not giant ants like the 50s movie... :) ).

    1. No giant ants :) but the second part of the book has a very 50's feel. It's awesome you picked up on that from the synopsis.

  3. If the fate of Americans is unknown...what about Australians? ;-)

    1. Ha! Maybe HarperTeen will change it for each country? They have English World Rights so they'll have to think about all the non-American english speaking countries...of which there are many.

  7. Wow, what an awesome concept! This "flap" definitely has me craving for more. I love that your premise is sort of about a teen (I'm assuming) "mothering" another character. That's pretty unique--especially set in a post-apocalyptic world.

  8. Thanks Kathryn! I was definitely interested in exploring a teen's relationship with a younger child, who she feels completely responsible for. I'm glad you like the idea!

    Are you thrilled to death or what?
    I recently got my jacket flap copy and loved it. No front cover yet, though. How about you?

    Just popping over for a return visit. It's nice to meet you! I'll be back!
