Charity Tinnin’s fascination with dystopian lit began in high school with Brave New World, and she’s been devouring the genre ever since. Now, she works as a freelance editor and lives in the foothills of North Carolina—a terrain very similar to a certain series. When she’s not editing for a client or working on the State v. Seforé series, she spends her time reading YA and discussing the merits of Oliver Queen, Captain America, Frederick Wentworth, and Stefan Salvatore online.

Speaking of the Internet, Charity loves to talk about YA fiction, comic TV/movies, and State v. Seforé. Find her on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, her website to start the conversation.

That's a huge compliment, and I'm so glad you want more of Noah, Maddision, and Daniel.

I wish I could give you a set date for its release. I also wish that date was next month - because I want you to have it ASAP as well! Unfortunately, I have a chronic illness which has gotten progressively worse in the last two years, and that's waylaid my writing a lot.

I am stealing time and energy for this series when I can, and I promise you'll get the follow-up as soon as I can get it to you, but I'm at the mercy of this illness to some extent.

If you'd like to receive news about Hunted (and a couple of bonus scenes from Haunted), you're welcome to subscribe to my newsletter; the sign up is on my website (www.charitytinnin.com) or you can follow me on Facebook.

Now, I must get back to it! And thanks again! (less)

"You're sitting."

Laini Taylor, Dreams of Gods & Monsters

Neil Postman
“We were keeping our eye on 1984. When the year came and the prophecy didn't, thoughtful Americans sang softly in praise of themselves. The roots of liberal democracy had held. Wherever else the terror had happened, we, at least, had not been visited by Orwellian nightmares.

But we had forgotten that alongside Orwell's dark vision, there was another - slightly older, slightly less well known, equally chilling: Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. Contrary to common belief even among the educated, Huxley and Orwell did not prophesy the same thing. Orwell warns that we will be overcome by an externally imposed oppression. But in Huxley's vision, no Big Brother is required to deprive people of their autonomy, maturity and history. As he saw it, people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.

What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy. As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny "failed to take into account man's almost infinite appetite for distractions." In 1984, Orwell added, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we fear will ruin us. Huxley feared that what we desire will ruin us.

This book is about the possibility that Huxley, not Orwell, was right.”
