An Insight Of The Characters' World: Guest Post + Giveaway by Lenore Appelhans

This is a feature where I ask authors to do a guest post discussing about the background of their books and share their experiences in creating the world in which the characters are portrayed.For more info on this feature,click HERE.

Today,Lenore Appelhans stops by at my blog to share her experiences in creating the characters' world for her debut,LEVEL 2,which comes out on January 15th.Here's a bit of info on herself and her debut novel.

Level 2 (The Memory Chronicles, #1)LEVEL 2 by LENORE APPELHANS

Since her untimely death the day before her eighteenth birthday, Felicia Ward has been trapped in Level 2, a stark white afterlife located between our world and the next. Along with her fellow drones, Felicia passes the endless hours reliving memories of her time on Earth and mourning what she’s lost—family, friends, and Neil, the boy she loved.

Then a girl in a neighboring chamber is found dead, and nobody but Felicia recalls that she existed in the first place. When Julian—a dangerously charming guy Felicia knew in life—comes to offer Felicia a way out, Felicia learns the truth: If she joins the rebellion to overthrow the Morati, the angel guardians of Level 2, she can be with Neil again.

Suspended between Heaven and Earth, Felicia finds herself at the center of an age-old struggle between good and evil. As memories from her life come back to haunt her, and as the Morati hunt her down, Felicia will discover it’s not just her own redemption at stake… but the salvation of all mankind.


Lenore Appelhans is the debut author of a YA novel LEVEL 2 (due January 15, 2013 from Simon and Schuster BFYR in the US, Usborne in the UK and Allen & Unwin in AUST/NZ) as well as a picture book CHICK-O-SAURUS REX (under the name Lenore Jennewein) with her husband, illustrator Daniel Jennewein (due Summer 2013 from Simon and Schuster BFYR).

  2. Oh, man!!! *-* This dystopia sounds so freaking amazing!!! Can't wait to read it. :) thank you very much for this fantastic intl giveaway!

  3. I love the idea of these memory chambers and breaking out. I think the afterlife is something a lot of people find fascinating and it is definitely something I'm constantly interested in reading about. Great feature!

    1. I agree Emily.Lots of authors have interpreted the afterlife in their books in different ways,but this one's absolutely unique.I'm currently reading this book and to be honest,I've never read about the afterlife being interpreted in such a distinguished way before. :)

    2. And so glad to hear that you like my feature! :) To be honest,I was a bit nervous when starting it,not sure whether other people will be really into it,y'know. :S

  4. The year started with some of the best books we're going to read! :)

  5. AHHH!I have been trying to snag a copy of this book from everywhere...
    It's one I really want to read!
    I'm definitely crossing my fingers and not uncrossing them until this giveaway ends! xD
    Thanks so much!

  6. Amazing post and Blog you have!!! I love your reviews and glad you are having this giveaway :)

  7. This book looks so amazing! Thank you for putting the giveaway :)

  8. So excited about this one. Lenore is a bit of a hero for me as she's a blogger-turned-author. I love the idea of the afterlife as a construct...I hope it sells well!

  9. Im really excited and intriged about this book, its different from the kind of books like but im really looking forward to read it.

  10. Afterlife books are among my favourite reads - but of course they have to be unique. I'd recommend what is probably the forefather of this genre - "Remember Me" by Christopher Pike, 1989 - to everyone. Not as glamorous as some more recent books, but still remarkable.

    Thank you for this giveaway! Though I'm not sure if all the entries are required, because if they are, I automatically disqualify...what with not being on Twitter and such :(

  11. OMG! My friend just recommended me this book! She thought it was amazing and told me a little. I am so excited to know about it!!
    Thanks for the chance!
