Special Scene Written by Elizabeth Richards + Giveaway: Signed Black City Swag

Hi everyone! So this Friday…instead of the usual character interview…Liz Richards wrote an actual scene between two of her characters (one is a reporter, so it’s perfect!) I was so happy when I read it. I never thought an author would ever write a scene for me like this.. It was a surprise! Again, today’s giveaway is for swag lovers.

What do you think? It’s awesome, right??

About the Author:

Elizabeth Richards is an award-winning journalist, who spent her early career reviewing videogames before making the bold (or crazy) move into travel writing, despite suffering from terrible travel sickness.

In her spare time, she ran a successful lifestyle website aimed at teenage girls, where she got to interview many of her favourite bands, go to gigs and basically blag loads of free swag all in the name of ‘research’.

Elizabeth lives in Buckinghamshire, England, with her husband. Black City is her debut novel.

About Black City:

A dark and tender post-apocalyptic love story set in the aftermath of a bloody war

In a city where humans and Darklings are now separated by a high wall and tensions between the two races still simmer after a terrible war, sixteen-year-olds Ash Fisher, a half-blood Darkling, and Natalie Buchanan, a human and the daughter of the Emissary, meet and do the unthinkable — they fall in love.

Bonded by a mysterious connection, that causes Ash's long dormant heart to beat, Ash and Natalie first deny and then struggle to fight their forbidden feelings for each other, knowing if they're caught they'll be executed —but their feelings are too strong.

When Ash and Natalie then find themselves at the center of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to pull the humans and Darklings back into war, they must make hard choices that could result in both their deaths.

  5. Ash is playing it pretty cool when he says, "The city's not on fire ane no one's tried to kill me yet." Given those facts, I'd have to agree that it's a pretty good day, so far!
