Dystopian Domination 2 Schedule & Button!!

Hi everyone! So…it’s now January 9. I know, I know. I told you guys that there will be a Dystopian Domination 2. Right? So…here it is. Kai of Amaterasu Reads and yours truly of Fragments of Life are starting 2012 with a bang! But this time, we’re not only focusing on dystopian and post-apocalyptic authors. Because it’s 2012 – the Year of the Apocalypsies – we decided to have a Part 2 in the event for them. Yes, you heard me right. We’ll also be including debut authors!

But first, I’d like to update you on what happened to the books and authors we featured in Dystopian Domination.

20 Years Later by Emma Newman is now in hardcover, people. Yes, it is! See how pretty it is?

The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch, Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts, Those That Wake by Jesse Karp, Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari, Dark Parties by Sara Grant, and Legend by Marie Lu are now available in bookstores!

Elana Johnson’s novella, Insider Information is available. And in July 2012, her next book, Surrender will be out. J Fans of Zenn, Jag and Vi, make sure to keep your eyes open for this!

The sequel of Burn Bright by Marianne de Pierres, Angel Arias is out! (And I still need to find a copy or else!) Fans of Lenoir and Retra/Naif who are living outside Australia, Marianne told me that you can get a copy here: Fish Pond (shipping is free, guys!)

Solstice by PJ Hoover is now available in paperback!

Divergent’s sequel, Insurgent will be out on May 1, 2012.

Glow’s sequel, Spark will be out in July 2012!

The sequel of Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick will be out in September 2012. In the meantime, you can enjoy reading her upcoming book, Drowning Instinct (which I suspect was the book she was editing/writing during Dystopian Domination). It’s on Netgalley!

Julianna Baggott’s Pure will be out next month! I’ve read and reviewed it here. Loved it! It will also be a movie in the future. ;)

Check out this Pure Trailer:


Joelle Anthony’s Restoring Harmony has been out since 2010. But next year, her new book, The Right and the Real will be out in April 26, 2012!

Maria Snyder’s Inside Out and Outside In are now available in Australia. Her new book, Touch of Power was released in December 2011.

Okay, I know some of you really want to see our line-up for Dystopian Domination 2. It will be a little different. It’s year 2012 – the year of the Apocalypsies and Kai and I decided to add a ‘Part 2’ in our event as a welcome celebration for them! Part 1 is for dystopian authors and post-apocalyptic authors and Part 2 is for debut authors and Apocalypsies!
