The Farm Blog Tour + Giveaway


It's the end of the world, and there are VAMPIRES in it! AHHHHH! Seriously, not all vampires sparkle, and it's fight or flight time. What would you do if you lived in the world of THE FARM?

While you ponder on that thought, let's have Emily McKay, author of THE FARM, let you guys in on what makes post-apocalyptic novels so baller. Word.



What do you think it is about post-apocalyptic novels that appeal to a young audience?

I think we all live with the fear that the world as we know it might end. There’s something appealing about the idea that, even if it does, there’s still something after. Something that is difficult and different but still has elements of good.

Giveaway:

  1. Run! Hopefully find a group that knows survival skills and can teach me their ways.

  2. The obvious solution is to exsanguinate myself so I'd stop being so damn tasty. :P

    Or, you know, hide somewhere. I'm pretty good good at fitting into small spaces.

  3. I don't know... Hide. I'm not sure I'm not made out to live during some type of apocalypse.

  4. Get fangs and paint some red on my face to blend in accordingly :-)

  6. Find somewhere to hide, have UV lights for when the sun is down? Lots of garlic around the windows and doors, holy water available, etc. Unless, it is Angel, Spike, Edward, Eric, any sexy vampire that is. :-)

  12. You know I could say that I would try and survive by kicking some butt and maybe I would but when it comes right down to it I would probably join em.

  13. Hide, hide, hide and hide some more???? I honestly don't know :) I wish there was a way I could blend and pretend I was one of them without being one....

  14. Scream and cover my eyes. I know it probably won't do much.....:)

  15. Hopefully, I'd learn a really practical martial arts before I came face to face with a vampire. And carrying a stake couldn't hurt.

  16. Not heard of this one before but I love end of the world novels. Definitely adding to my wishlist!

  17. Generally, I've found decapitation works for most things. I might let my 4 year old loose on them... they should be afraid, very afraid.

  18. I would run and if I couldn't out run them I would pull out the holy water and stakes and maybe lots of sun light. It would probably also be a good idea to have Buffy's number handy : )

  19. Probably hide! Thanks for the giveaway!
