Shout Out to Indies - Some Fine Day by Kat Ross plus Giveaway



We here at The Paperback Princesses often receive emails from Indie authors requesting reviews and are blessed with free book copies. Often we are unable to get to so many titles before our mass market published books take over our TBR shelves. That doesn't mean there aren't plenty of great reads though! We want to give back to those Indie authors and are declaring EVERY SECOND SUNDAY our SHOUT OUT TO INDIES MEME. For those of fellow bloggers, please feel free to add our meme to your regular schedule. We only ask that you quote and link back to us as a courtesy. For all of you Indie authors, we invite you to contact us at the contact link to your top left. We will select 1 - 3 titles (each time we post) that sound interesting.

Synopsis: A generation ago, continent-sized storms called hypercanes caused the Earth to flood. The survivors were forced to retreat deep underground and build a new society.

This is the story that sixteen-year-old Jansin Nordqvist has heard all of her life. Jansin grew up in a civilization far below the Earth’s surface. She’s spent the last eight years in military  intelligence training. So when her parents surprise her with a coveted yet treacherous trip above ground, she’s prepared for anything. She’s especially thrilled to feel the fresh air, see the sun, and view the wide-open skies and the ocean for herself.

But when raiders attack Jansin’s camp and take her prisoner, she is forced to question everything she’s been taught. What do her captors want? How will she get back underground? And if she ever does, will she want to stay after learning the truth?

Some Fine Day is available for purchase on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. You can find more reader reviews on Goodreads.

You can check out the trailer here.

We asked Kat why she likes to write YA:

I like to write YA because I like writing characters whose minds are relatively open, whose opinions of the world haven't yet fossilized, who can grow and change and question things. There's something so intense about the relationships we form as teenagers and the experiences we go through…kids are just revolutionary in a lot of ways.

Plus there's a big part of me that just never went along with the whole "being a grown-up" thing. I mostly write in first person and that voice comes very easily (:

Kat Ross was born and raised in New York City and worked several jobs before turning to journalism and 

creative writing. An avid traveler and adventurer, she now lives with her family—along with a beagle, a
