Blog Tour: Daynight with Giveaway


On Tour with Prism Book Tours...

It's time to leave Earth and cross over to the other side... it's not as far away as you think!!


 



Planning Ahead - continued from Sab, The Book Eater

Clean Slate Complex (a daynight novella)
 
daynight explored the SCI’s iron grip on Thera and the Second Chancers. clean slate complex explores what the SCI is up to on Earth (nothing good). It’s a quick read (~50 pages) but a full story and will help fill in some important pieces, whether or not a person has read daynight or not.
Alexa Knight is the voice of clean slate complex. She’s homeless. Her mom’s sick and in desperate need of medical care and she agrees to help out the SCI in return for help for her mom. Alexa figures out what the SCI is up to, but with her brothers and her mom in the SCI’s clutches, what can she do about it? Alexa’s a tough and feisty character who isn’t afraid to take action. We’ll see more of her in arbitrate as we return to Kira, Blake and Ethan’s story.
 
Arbitrate 
 
Although arbitrate is not yet fully written, it is fully plotted. Here’s what I can tell you (without giving away spoilers since many haven’t readdaynight):
- There’s a year gap between the end of daynight and start ofarbitrate. Any flashbacks that happen cover the year gap (no childhood flashbacks).
- There is a lot of action and movement. The characters aren’t sitting in Garden City, taking what the SCI throws at them. They are on the move. We’ll see a whole lot more of Thera and of what’s happening on Earth.
- The Arbiters play a big role (thus the title). My favorite character (because I love comic relief characters), Jax, plays a huge role. If you loved the snippets you saw of him in daynight you may be willing to throw Ethan and Blake under an SCI bus by the end of arbitrate. That’d be mean though. Don’t do that.
- Everything Kira tried so hard not to deal with in daynight comes back to haunt her in arbitrate. She snaps. And when she comes out of it she’s not quite the same person (in a good way).
- Chapter one is both horrifically grim and funny. Not in the same scene though. Horrifically grim things aren’t funny.
- There will be more controversy, but not about Cleaving. I think we are all done with that one.
arbitrate will be professionally content and copy edited and have alpha/beta reads. This process was more informal in daynight—but after working with a professional editor on clean slate complex I see the benefits and will never go back.

by Megan Thomason
Paperback, 324 pages
Published November 26th 2012 by Creatspace

Meet The Second Chance Institute (SCI): Earth’s benevolent non-profit by day, Thera’s totalitarian regime by night. Their motto: Because Everyone Deserves a Second Chance™. Reality: the SCI subjects Second Chancers to strict controls and politically motivated science experiments like Cleaving—forced lifetime union between two people who have sex. Punishment for disobeying SCI edicts? Immediate Exile or death.

Meet Kira Donovan. Fiercely loyal, overly optimistic, and ensnared by the promise of a full-ride college scholarship, Kira signs the SCI Recruit contract to escape memories of a tragedy that left her boyfriend and friends dead.

Meet Blake Sundry. Bitter about being raised in Exile and his mother’s death, Blake’s been trained to infiltrate and destroy the SCI. Current barrier to success? His Recruit partner—Miss Goody Two Shoes Kira Donovan.

Meet Ethan Darcton. Born with a defective heart and resulting inferiority complex, Ethan’s forced to do his SCI elite family’s bidding. Cleave-worthy Kira Donovan catches his eye, but the presiding powers give defect-free Blake Sundry first dibs.

clean slate complex
by Megan Thomason

Meet The Second Chance Institute (SCI): Worldwide non-profit and do-gooder organization. Their motto: Because Everyone Deserves a Second Chance at Life(TM). Reality: hidden behind every kind act is a dark agenda designed to gain control and force societal and moral extremes. Currently, the SCI’s pushing Project Liberate, a program to woo the poor and downtrodden into their Clean Slate Complexes—where “everything is provided” from jobs to food, shelter, clothing, and education. Unfortunately, as with all things that sound too good to be true, there’s a catch…

Meet Alexa Knight. Feisty, tough and currently homeless in Los Angeles, Alexa agrees to help the SCI in return for medical care for her sick mother. When she starts to suspect there’s more to the SCI than meets the eye will she believe Adam—the boy who saved her life and the SCI’s biggest champion, or Joshua—the attractive enigma who sings about conspiracy theories and pretends to be someone he’s not?

Full of action, humor, romance, twists and turns, clean slate complex is a companion story to the highly-praised dystopian novel, daynight. It can be enjoyed before or after readingdaynight.
