Across The Wire Blog Tour: Top 10 List & Giveaway!

Across the Wire by Stella Telleria
Publication date: November 4th 2013
Genres: Adult, Science Fiction

When Mia Mitchell, a hardcore but lonely former Marine, steps into an alley to pull some thugs off an unlucky foreigner, she walks into a fight she expects. What she doesn’t see coming is the foreigner making her a job offer any sane person would refuse. So, she takes it. She thinks she’s headed for some third-world country; instead she’s mysteriously transported to an Earth-like parallel world. That’s a mad left-hook.
Mia discovers a matriarchal dystopia where freedom doesn’t exist and fighting for it means execution. Lethal force bends all to the law; women fear for their families and un-wed men suffer slavery. Mia’s job is to train an underground syndicate of male freedom-fighters for a violent revolution. However, the guys don’t want a pair of X chromosomes showing them the way.

Eben, an escaped slave, is encouraged by Mia to become a leader among the men. But when he turns his quiet determination on her, it spells F.U.B.A.R. for cynical Mia. Their unexpected connection threatens more than her exit strategy; it threatens the power struggle festering with in the syndicate.

Haunted by nightmares and post-traumatic stress, unsure who to trust or how to get home, Mia struggles to stay alive as she realizes all is not what it seems.

Top ten things you would take during an apocalypse

There are the obvious things one should have to be prepared for an apocalypse:
1.      Water or some sort of filtration or water purification system.2.      Food3.      First aid kit with medication (antibiotics).4.      Firearm of some sort and ammo.5.      A good knife.6.      Matches.7.      Clothes (it’s probably going to get cold). Don’t forget some good shoes.8.      Shelter. Either find some or bring a sturdy tent.9.      Rope (it comes in handy).10.  Duct tape (you can do anything with that stuff).

Then there are the not so obvious or handy things one needs to survive an apocalypse: 
1.      My hubby. I don’t know what I’d do without him. I could surely survive alone, but with him I could do anything.2.      Board games. Monopoly, Pictionary, and Cranium are my weapons of choice. I kick @$$ at them. One needs to keep occupied when faced with utter boredom.3.      My library. My TBR pile is so deep it could keep me entertained for years. Huh, maybe I am a prepper after all. ;)4.      Notebooks. Without electricity, this is where I’ll have to do my writing/scribbling/thinking.5.      Chocolate. This doesn’t need an explanation, does it?6.      Chap Stick/Sunscreen. If you’re going to be outside a lot, these will come in handy.7.      Yoga/sweat pants. Comfy=Happy8.      A dog. Not only are they great companions but they can also warn you of danger.9.      Tools. I’m a very handy gal. I’d finally have time to tackle all the furniture refinishing projects piling up in my basement.10.   Toiletries. Without toothpaste and soap the smell alone might kill me.

Thank you for having me!

Tour wide giveaway
Open to US, to Canada, the UK, and to Australia:
 Signed copy + swag 

All my life I’ve dreamed of stories or have had my nose buried in one. I live in Edmonton, Canada with my husband and my weird sense of humor. Across the Wire is my first novel.

I love old war movies, dystopian fiction, and any story with action, a good plot, and characters I'd get into a fight at the pub for. Not that I'm a brawler or anything. Unless you think that out-of-print book or vintage piece at the thrift shop is going home with you instead of me. Then, my friend, the gloves are off.

Some say if you have your nose buried in a book, you're missing out on life. I say my nose is buried in a book because one life is not enough.

  1. Chocolate!! That's a necessity for my survival! And a dog would be nice and hopefully whatever ailment (zomby-ism) has caused the end of the world won't affect dogs >.<

  2. I think this was the most unique guest post topic of the tour. LOL! Thank you for taking part in it.
