Yet, in a world where greed is rampant and only the strong survive, how can she find the courage to trust again?




Today I have the honor to interview the author D.D. Chant

Did you format your own book? I did! It was very hard work, but I spent a LOT of time looking up the correct way to do things and I love how it turned out. What do you think of “trailers” for books? I can’t say as I’ve watched a great many: for me the synopsis tells me if I *have* to read a book. I do have trailers for all my books and I love them, but I think that’s just because they’re mine!!! What are your ambitions for your writing career? For now I’m happy that people are reading and enjoying my stories. Would I like to see them as films? Yes!!! However, I think it’s important to be thankful for the fan base I have now. What is your favorite motivational phrase? ‘There is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs!’ Did you get interviewed by local press/radio for your book launch? I did, it was great fun. I was soooo nervous but Adam and Rachel made me feel welcome and relaxed, and I ended up staying on after my interview to chat with them. It was really great! Do you have a muse? No. And I’m not very constant: my favourite character is always the one I’m currently writing about! During you do book signings and if so do you have any dates coming up soon that your fans can come see you at? I have done a few in the past, but I haven’t got any planned at the moment. How did you come up with the title? There is a theme with all of the books in the Broken City series: The first book is ‘Broken City’, the second ‘Broken Truce’, and the third ‘Broken Pride’. I wanted the titles to reflect the world that Deeta inhabits which is, in a word, broken. As the story progresses you begin to see that it’s more than just the city that’s damaged... It has been an honor interviewing you today. Thank you for having me, it was fun! Your friends at Here is what I read


Suddenly he knew exactly what the next few minutes would bring.They find the first body slumped against the wall of one of the outer buildings. The young man, little more than a boy, is propped up at an awkward angle, his face frozen into an expression filled with so much fear that it was difficult to look at him. And then there was more. More bodies, more blood, more horror than Ryder can take in. He feels sick to his stomach and, for a few moments, he is a teenage boy again picking through the dead carcasses that had littered the Kelly compound. He shakes his head, trying to bring his focus back to the present. Bodies litter the streets and hang over thresholds. He blinks the sweat running into his eyes away, trying not to dwell on the death that surrounds him. He couldn’t think about the awfulness, about the fact that most of the dead were so young. They break into the square, yet by then Ryder had known what they would find. Val swears and when Ryder looks across at him it is to find that his sardonic, ever smug half-brother looks like he is going to be sick. “What the… how the hell did they do this?” Val splutters, lifting his hand to his head and looking around wildly. “How did the Lewises manage to do this? We were right here for goodness sake! How did we not know this was happening?” Ryder doesn’t answer him. He had no answers, just the sickness that rolled around his stomach. Beside him Connell turns and vomits on to the ground. Ryder isn’t surprised to see one of the hard-bitten Andak soldiers displaying such weakness. He was pretty close to joining him in heaving out the contents of his own stomach. Out of the corner of his eye he catches sight of a movement and lifts his gun warningly. Ian sits in the dust outside one of the hovels the Brownelys called homes. It takes Ryder a minute to realise that it was Ian’s house, the same one he had seen him standing in the doorway of yesterday. He moves forward, ready to offer assistance. It wasn’t until he was much closer that he became aware of the fact that Ian clutched a lifeless body in his arms.

Hi everyone, My name is DeeDee and I live in a beautiful part of Devon, England, with my family. I’ve always loved to read, and I’ve never been picky about which genre I read in. I’m just as happy curled up with a regency romance as I am with a dystopian adventure. When I first wrote Broken City I had no idea that it would turn in to a series, but Deeta’s story begged to be told. So the stand alone Broken City became a trilogy, and now I know there will be a forth book as well. I also write in other genres, I have a series of contemporary comedic short stores (The Claire series). I also have a historical romance series (The Lady Quill Chronicles), and a dystopian adventure series (The Chronicles of Discord). I really hope that you enjoy reading my stories as much as I enjoy writing them!

Life isn't turning out the way that Deeta thought it would. With the Lewises defeated and peace between the tribes, she had believed that the dark times were a thing of the past. But troubles between the tribes continue, and the Andak council have selected Tom as their ambassador and spokesman to the other tribes. Deeta knows that there is still much resentment against the Andak, and that Tom is in danger every time he leaves the safety of Andak City. Struggling with her own complicated feelings against the tribe that she is now a part of, Deeta tries to ignore the changing attitudes growing within her. But when Tom is betrayed and they are thrown into great danger, Deeta finds that reality can't be ignored forever...
