NEW SERIES ALERT
THE SERIES: The Farm
BOOK #1: The Farm | PUBLISHER: Penguin
RELEASE DATE: February 2013 | GENRE: Dystopian, YA
A powerful, unique and compelling novel about twin sisters and their fight for survival in a world on the brink of chaos, The Farm by Emily McKay is as addictive as The Hunger Games and The Passage.
For Lily and her twin sister Mel there is only the Farm… It’s a prison, a blood bank, a death camp – where fear and paranoia rule. But it’s also home, of sorts. Because beyond the electric fence awaits a fate much, much worse. But Lily has a plan. She and Mel are going to escape – into the ravaged land outside, a place of freedom and chaos and horrors. Except Lily hasn’t reckoned on two things: first, her sister’s ability to control the horrors; and, secondly, on those out there who desperately want to find and control Mel. Mel’s growing power might save the world, or utterly end it. But only Lily can protect Mel from what is to come…
Emily McKay has a degree in English from Texas A&M University. After college, she taught middle school for four years. While teaching America’s disenfranchised youth to appreciate fine literature, she learned very little about writing romance but a lot about finding humor in any situation. Eager for a job where she wouldn’t have to dodge spitwads, she fled the teaching profession to write full-time. Though her characters sometimes misbehave, they almost never throw things at her.
In 1993, she followed the advice, “write what you love to read,” and began writing her first romance novel. Eight years, five books, and multiple contest finals later, she sold a book to Harlequin Temptation. Her first published book, Baby, Be Mine was released in 2002 and was a nominated for RWA’s prestigious Rita award for Best First Book and for Best Short Contemporary. Since then she’d sold ten additional books to Harlequin, Temptation, Mills & Boon and Silhouette Desire. Her books have been translated into eleven languages and there are over half a million copies of her books in print.
