Please welcome author, Linore Rose Burkard to my blog this week. Linore is giving away an e-copy of her YA boxset trilogy if there are ten commenters. So share, share, share! Read below to see how to enter.
When my sweet historical romance series was published, I never dreamed my next would be YA/Apocalyptic. What a switch in genres! So, how
did I go from one end of the writing spectrum to another? Blame it on an idea that refused to die. I read a headline about how close the earth came to suffering a catastrophic electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, in 2012. We missed the worst effects of a solar flare
by a hair (in space terms); but the “what if” factor had been set in motion. What if that flare hadn’t missed us? What if I was a teen raised on electronics–or an adult medically dependent on them–and it all went dead in a matter of seconds? What if the next
flare doesn’t miss? PULSE, the
first book in my PULSE EFFEX Series, was born. Just this week, the box set of the three books that make up The PULSE EFFEX SERIES became available. One winner, chosen by Debbie Lynne, will get a free box set ebook!
Leave a comment to be entered in the drawing. Tell us whether you like to read suspense or apocalyptic fiction
or if its new to you. Thanks for coming by!

Book One in the Series.
So my dad got all upset because when he went to leave for work the car went halfway down the driveway and died. His precious Mercedes. I was just walking out to wait for the school
bus and he hurried towards me in a huff, yelling something about how the starter wouldn't even turn over.
"What'd you do to the car, Andrea?" he demanded. I stared at him. I couldn't believe he was trying to pin it on me.
"What'd you do to it, huh?" he asked again. I turned and stalked blindly down the driveway to wait by the mailbox. My heart was pounding. Normally I'd enjoy the crunch of snow beneath
my boots, and the way the pines lining our driveway are blanketed in white; but I barely noticed either.
Leave it to Dad to ruin my day before it starts...
