Since it's still my day to post, I'm hijacking this post from myself (see below) to announce

AFTERTIME is out today!

By our own Sophie Littlefield, I have this to say: I loved this book. The writing is gorgeous, the language spare and precise and moving.

And it's the scariest thing I've ever read. Seriously. Sure, you think zombies and you think (or maybe it's just me): cheesy. It's gonna be high-pitched-scream in-the-theatre scary.

But no. Sophie's gift is making it real. As if it's something that could happen (AND IT COULD) in the near future, given chemical warfare and political upheaval. It got to the point where I couldn't read it at night, because the nightmares I was having were so awful. Sophie's writing is affecting. It's unavoidable. It's look-at-this-NOW writing, and I loved every scary minute of it, and the main character Cass broke and rebroke my heart, over and over again.

Go do yourself a favor give it a read. Congrats, Sophie! We're so proud of you.
