Alex Bracken - Lore
If you love Central Park...well, let's just say you will never forget this book!
It was fun to talk to Alex Bracken about her newest book, Lore. She is delightful and I was happy that I had a chance to about this book based on Greek mythology.
Nine gods have betrayed me and now demand cruel revenge."
The title character, LORE, is Melora Perseous from the of House Perseus. She's burned out from the years of fighting among the gods and the death of her family. Being the last in her bloodline, she has escaped to New York City where she hopes to forget -- but, of course, it is not going to be that easy.
So starts the story of the Agon, which occurs every seven years in a different city. It is a time when all of the relatives of the ancient bloodlines can kill the god they descend from and take their powers (and immortality) for themselves.
In this interview Alex and I talk about the importance of having a pitch -- and her pitch is a great example for all the writers who are just starting off.
This book is the #1 Bestselling YA Hardback book. That's quite an accomplishment. It has beautiful production value including a gold embossed cover.
