    For those missing The 100 (or who want free books) 

    Hello my friends! You may not know this, but I’m kiiiiiiind of obsessed with the CW’s show THE 100. It’s full of all the things I love about good TV: smart writing, complex, interesting characters, thorny ethical questions, and super high stakes. The show’s film, costume, and make-up geniuses have brought the world beautifully, brutally to life, and the writers have created such a visceral storytelling style that I am literally on the edge of my seat and hardly breathing through practically every episode. What I love most about it, though, is how much it makes me THINK. What would I do in that situation? Would I have the guts or the smarts to do what was necessary? Could I make that call? It’s a brilliant show, and if you haven’t seen it yet, get thee to Netflix!

     

    Unfortunately for us all, though, THE 100 won’t be gracing our TV screens again until 2016. Sad face!! So, what are we to do in the meantime? Weeeell, I’d like to offer two humble suggestions!

    First, if you haven’t checked them out yet, read THE 100, DAY 21, and HOMECOMING by Kass Morgan, the books the TV series is based on! (Especially if you’re a Bellarke fan. ;-)) The books are quite different from the show, but they’re equally entertaining. And there are a few goodies for fans (cough Bellarke cough) that we haven’t seen on the show yet.

    Second, take a gander at my book REBEL WING. If you like the action and female badassery of THE 100, you're in luck! REBEL WING has war, secret political plotting, and lots of strong, complex female characters. And if you liked Octavia’s journey from sheltered girl to badass warrior, you may particularly enjoy the main character Aris’s transformation from a girl who’d give up everything for love, to a soldier who discovers there’s so much more to fight for. Oh, and have I mentioned Aris and her friends have to disguise themselves as men to join the war effort? Yeah, they’re pretty hardcore. ;-)

    If you scroll down, you’ll find the official description of REBEL WING, BUT before you do that, let me tell you about the AMAZING giveaway I’m running!! My buddy Kass, along with Alloy Entertainment, have given me some incredible prizes to share with you! In addition to winning a signed paperback of REBEL WING, one lucky winner will also receive the COMPLETE THE 100 book series (all three books!!) signed by Kass Morgan herself! AND Alloy has donated some super cool THE 100 swag too. Um, AWESOME! If you’d like to enter, check out the Rafflecopter giveaway below.

    Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ll follow me on Twitter so we can angst together while we wait for season 3, and you can tell me what you think of Rebel Wing. (Also, I enjoy any and all Lincoln pics/gifs/fan art. Share any gloriousness you find with me, pretty please!)

    Final note: You do NOT have to be a 100 fan to enter this contest. However, if you win, you may become one. You've been warned! ;-)

    REBEL WING (REBEL WING #1) 

    Tracy Banghart

    The Dominion of Atalanta is at war. But for eighteen-year-old Aris, the fighting is nothing more than a distant nightmare, something she watches on news vids from the safety of her idyllic seaside town. Then her boyfriend, Calix, is drafted into the Military, and the nightmare becomes a dangerous reality.

    Left behind, Aris has nothing to fill her days. Even flying her wingjet—the thing she loves most, aside from Calix—feels meaningless without him by her side. So when she's recruited to be a pilot for an elite search-and-rescue unit, she leaps at the chance, hoping she'll be stationed near Calix. But there's a catch: She must disguise herself as a man named Aristos. There are no women in the Atalantan Military, and there never will be.

    Aris gives up everything to find Calix: her home. Her family. Even her identity. But as the war rages on, Aris discovers she's fighting for much more than her relationship. With each injured person she rescues and each violent battle she survives, Aris is becoming a true soldier--and the best flyer in the Atalantan Military. She's determined to save her Dominion . . . or die trying.

     

    Book 2, STORM FALL, is out now and book 3 will release this August. Cover and title reveal coming soon!

    Nora Sutherlin from Tiffany Reisz's The Original Sinners series is my book idol/girl crush! She's such a strong character personality-wise but you can tell she's built herself from her tough past.

    I'm so excited for the new season of the 100 and for mysterious Rebel Wing #3! They all feature very likable characters, and those unlikable ones are pretty awesome too. Hmmm, I really admire Disney Mulan and Belle, because both girls struggled but succeeded in holding on to who they were in spite of the place, or time they lived in. :)

    To be my friend on "Goodreads", you have to answer a question similar to that one. Right now I am all about Clarke Griffin. I think she is wonderful and complex but knows she has to do what is necessary to survive. I also really like Cassia from the Matched series by Ally Condie because she followed her heart more than anything else and that is so important. She also learned that to create is more important than to destroy and the only way to continue in life is to keep creating, whether it be artistically or just good memories.

    I write strong women of my own, but a woman I can think about now that comes to mind is someone who doesn't start out strong. Someone who is human and normal, who falters and has to learn from her mistakes, face adversity. Like Sophie Price in VAIN from Fisher Amelie.

    I think Sarah from Orphan Black. She kicks butt without even trying to and isn't afraid to face things head on!

    uggggggggh, I'm so ready for The 100 to be back!! I need more Murphy and Octavia.

    I absolutely adore stronge women in books & tv shows. I think my favorite strong woman is Commander Lexa, she's young but she already knows the rules of the world and she has an army ready to die for her.

    I admire Raven Reyes and Laurel Lance. They are both such strong women. They have been through so much but they keep fighting. Nothing can keep them down.

    June 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMireya

    I admire Clarke Griffin because of the way she leads. Clarke doesn't ignore her heart when she makes decisions and although it become increasingly difficult for her, she remains strong in her beliefs and her desire to save the people important to her.

    These are all so great! I'm adding a bunch of books to my TBR list!

    June 16, 2015 | Registered CommenterTracy

    My favorite book heroine is merridith gentry from the laurell k Hamilton series because no matter what happens she carries on and trues to save as many people as she can but when someone needs killing she never hesitates. And she never leaves anyone stranded if she can help it.

    Hope I win! thanks for the opportunity!

    Celaena Sardothien. She's independent, determined to the point of being stubborn, really good in combat, fierce, sneaky, dangerous, mysterious, yet she still loves books and clothes and she challenges stereotypes being a pretty girl who can literally murder you in your sleep.
