I’ve been working on a lot of Reece-heavy scenes that require a lot of Reece-type music…so I made another playlist. X) These are the songs I revisit the most when trying to get Reece’s voice out on the page.

So I was looking back at the old dream cast I made for Palatine First (avoiding edits like a boss) and realize I never landed on a Hayden or Po I really liked. And now it’s like an itch.

Who do you guys imagine playing characters from TAA?

"This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring.

It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.” - Gary Provost

Reading this was so satisfying woah

The new matte-finish covers are in, so I think it’s time for a give-away!

So let’s do it this way - to qualify to win a signed paperback copy of the Po Trimble short story (previously only available in eBook), reblog this post.

Help get TAA out there! READY SET GO. XD
