The League of Extraordinary Writers - Follow Friday

This week's Follow Friday features a group of five writers who write in the dystopian/sci-fi genre. I particularly love this blog for its tips on world-building and writing craft.

Here's some quick info pulled off the League's blog on their upcoming books:

League Members
  • Jeff Hirsch, author of THE LONG WALK HOME, about a 15 year old scavenger coming of age after a nearly apocalyptic war.
  • Elana Johnson, author of CONTROL ISSUES, where one rebel fifteen-year-old tries to fight her brainwashing government.
  • Julia Karr, author of XVI, a novel set in the year 2150, where turning sixteen is anything but sweet.
  • Beth Revis, author of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, a murder mystery set in space.
  • Angie Smibert whose novel MEMENTO NORA is about a teenage girl’s struggle to hold on to her memories—and her identity—in a world that finds it far more lucrative for everyone to forget—and keep on shopping.
