Dear You,

This is my first blog hop, as I only recently started a blog. I still don’t know what I’m doing, so hopefully I didn’t screw it up too badly. I was tagged by Lisa Voisin, author of The Watcher, and next I’m tagging Lish McBride, author of Hold Me Closer, Necromancer, and Necromancing the Stone.

Wow. This is probably the most gruesome novel I've ever read. It really gives incestuous, deformed, backwoods inbreeders a bad name. ;)

“A piece of advice: if you want to remain in control of a doomsday cult, don't give a date for the end of the world unless you're really, really sure it's going to happen. Being wrong tends to undermine your authority.”
Jennifer Bosworth, Struck

“When you've been struck by lightning as many times as I have, you start to expect the worst pretty much all the time.”
Jennifer Bosworth, Struck

“Give your false prophet a message for me. Tell him Jesus befriended the whores and the thieves and the sinners. Tell him his Old Testament God is dead. God doesn't punish the wicked and save the righteous. God is love.”

G.K. Moore Hi Jennifer, thanks for the add! :)


 Sudha Is Struck a series now with its companion novel, The Killing Jar? Didn't you say before that Struck was a standalone? Is it still that or do I have sone facts wrong?


Jennifer Thanks Genie! Glad to know you!

Thank you for reaching out to me! At this time time there's no second Struck book in the works, but I'll have another book in the same vein coming out in 2014. :) Also, if you want some Struck side stories, there's a story on Tor.com called Prophet, which tells the origin story of teenage Rance Ridley, and I have another sister story to Struck being published this summer in an anthology called UNFETTERED.

Thank you again for letting me know you enjoyed the book! That makes my day. :)


Nardie hey thanks for accepting me i love you book!! but is thee going to be a second book?


Jennifer Done and done. :)
