Making the Best of Your Dystopia

For tomorrow's release of Nomad, I've written a guest blog on Alluring Reads about how to cope with life in a dystopian society.  It involves crafts.

There's also a flash giveaway of Nomad ebooks for the first readers who comment, so get over there fast!

"It’s not a perfect world. In fact, it’s horrible. There’s oppression, tyranny, poverty, weird game shows where people die. Odds are that highly personal decisions, including those related to your career, marriage, and children, are under complete government control. Congratulations, you live in a dystopian world!"

  1. Dystopias have become a fascinating genre over the last century as disillusioned writers witnessed and reacted against imperialism, two world wars, including the Nazi and Stalin regime and the treacherous Holocaust. These writers played with the darkest sides of humanity, unearthed by war and technology and used satiric irony to present a destructive vision of the future. Dystopian novels are characterized by a lack of individual freedom, heroes that know something is wrong and contain many WTF moments that make you rethink the current status quo and become aware of the constructed nature of our values and standards.
