Lois Lane will be getting the YA novel treatment come January from author Gwenda Bond. The book, titled Fallout, is from Capstone/Switch will focus on young Lois Lane just starting out in Metropolis. The 304 page book will be released in January. Will Superman appear? Check out the blurb below to see.
Well, that didn’t take long and I’m honored to see it on dcwomenkickingass (Lois would be proud). The release date may be a little later, but otherwise (!!!!) and more news on the way from the switchpresspub team very soon — including more gorgeous teasers!
I’m thrilled that everyone is so excited about this. I felt exactly the same when the possibility of writing it came up. I love Lois.
Of course, I love Lois.
And I think you’ll all be very happy. Much more soon! After a little chair-dancing.
Out of Control is a heart-stopping adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat from the first chapter. It includes Alderson’s trademark action and amazing characters and takes on an issue rarely seen in YA fiction.
I love how realistic the characters are. On the surface Liva’s a spoilt girl and Jay is a street-thug, but both defy expectations and grow into amazing, dimensional…
[Mark] Latham suggested that Australia adopt voluntary voting because then “parties would have to come up with genuine policies that matter to people to encourage them to go out and vote” and it would “make parties more courageous and genuine”.
But the political science research strongly shows the opposite, with the United States the classic case of a voluntary voting system where the parties are anything but responsive or courageous. They pander to sectional interests because in voluntary voting systems turnout is heavily skewed in favour of the well-off and politicians are keenly aware of their constituency.
No US president has ever been elected by a majority of eligible voters and, in the last US presidential election in 2012, only 54 per cent of the voting age population voted. As in other voluntary systems, people with high incomes, education and occupation dominate voting.
American politics only makes sense when viewed through this prism of politicians who can disregard the needs of non-voters — including the poor, the working poor and the marginalised — without fear of strong electoral consequences.
The abominable US healthcare system, their deregulated, expensive university education system and their harsh and leaky welfare safety net that contributes to high crime rates and entrenched poverty are all the result of politicians knowing they can pretty safely ignore the needs of all but those who vote — and who donate.
I read this in one sitting! It was gorgeous and beautiful and Stephanie Perkins writes the best books!
It’s been so long since I read Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door that I forgot that we’ve already met Josh and Isla. I forgot!! It was great to be reminded that I already knew both of them from the other books :)
Isla and the Happily Ever Afteris a book of exquisite,…
It’s been ages since I read Unravelling! So long, in fact, that all I could remember about it was that I really liked it, and I was desperate to read a sequel.
My experience of reading Unbreakablehas undoubtably been hampered by the long time I’ve spent away from this world and its characters. When I jumped into the book I couldn’t remember who most of the characters were, and had basically…
I have a super-awesome cover reveal to share with you today! Hellish Haven, a dystopian multicultural romance, is belong published in November by Lyrical Press (Kensington Publishing), and the author approached me to do a cover reveal. And when you see the cover and read the synopsis, you’ll see why I jumped at the opportunity! I’m also sharing an exclusive excerpt, so make sure you stick around…
