All it takes is a spark…
Blythe Sol never would have thought she would become the face of the Restoration Resistance. Yet, that is just what has happened now that the battle lines have been drawn. With the movement sweeping the United States, the stakes are higher than ever as President Drummond continues to prove his dedication to the destruction of the Bionics and all who stand with them.
The flame has been ignited…
As anger and frustration among the American people reaches the boiling point, citizens begin to fight back, many showing their support for the Bionics… despite the personal costs to themselves. As protests turn violent, and people who once cowered in silence begin to fight back, the government continues its practices that fly in the face of the very principles the nation was founded upon.
The time has come to revolt …
Despite the many losses it has sustained, the Resistance stands strong, leading America into revolution and onward toward change. With an unlikely, ragtag family of misfits at its forefront, the Resistance stands, while a girl who lost everything continues to fight for a future that was once impossible, but may now be within her reach.
About the Author:
Ever since she first read books like Chronicles of Narnia or Goosebumps, Alicia has been a lover of mind-bending fiction. Wherever imagination takes her, she is more than happy to call that place her home. The mother of two and wife to an Army sergeant loves chocolate, coffee, and of course good books. When not writing, you can usually find her with her nose in a book, shopping for shoes and fabulous jewelry, or spending time with her loving family.
How did you start your writing career?
I published my first novel 3 years ago under a different pen name. It was a historical romance. About nine months after that, I launched the Alicia Michaels pen name to write Young Adult and New Adult. I haven’t looked back sense.
Where do you dream of traveling to and why?
I can’t really choose any one place. I dream of travelling to lots of difference places to experience lots of different things. Last year I went to both New Orleans and Las Vegas for the first time, and those trips were amazing! Next, I’m setting my sights on New York and California. I hope soon to be able to take my first trip out of the country.
Tell us about your current release.
The Bionics novels is a dystopian series based in American in the year 4010. Nuclear war has changed our society for the worst, because people who were injured in the war and offered robotic body parts and organs are now being targeted by the government. The Resistance is book 2, and picks up where book 1, The Bionics, left off. The whole story revolves around a group of underground soldiers fighting back against the government for their place in society.
Later this month I’m releasing book 4 in my Lost Kingdom of Fallada Series, Tempest’s Fury. The Lost Kingdom of Fallada is a series of books based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tales.
What is the hardest part of writing your books?
The hardest part is fighting against my own worst critic—myself. Once I stop worrying over what people will think, or whether I’m doing something the ‘right’ way, or whether a certain plot point is too outlandish … or whatever … then I can get out of my own way and just write.
Is there something unique about your writing style?
I don’t know if I’d say it’s ‘unique’, but I feel that my M.O. is writing character-driven stories. It’s certainly not something other writers can’t claim, so I wouldn’t call it uniquely mine. I will say that it’s important to me and it’s something I try to accomplish in every story.
Do you use a pen name? If so, how did you come up with it?
Alicia Michaels is, in fact, a pen name. It is comprised of the middle names of two of my children.
Do you listen to music while writing? If so what?
I do like to listen to music while writing. It really just depends on what I’m working on. For this series I listen to a lot of Imagine Dragons and Fallout Boy. High energy songs about revolution, and anything with a futuristic and sort of electronic sound. Like Ellie Goulding. I also listen to a lot of movie scores and soundtracks. The Hunger Games puts me in a good mood to write this series.
