I hope you are ready for the weekend and that this week was kind to everyone. And if not, many hugs, I know things will get better.
Meanwhile, let me introduce you to an amazing author and her upcoming book.
“Republic of Ruin“, written by L. Blaise Hues, is a YA Dystopian novel, the first book in the Legacy of Debris Series, that will be published on February 2nd 2021, by Aethon Books.
Forget life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness… Surviving is a feat in and of itself.
Seventeen-year-old Ellie Hudson immerses herself in the few things the Supply Wars haven’t destroyed—her ranch work and secret baseball games with her best friend.
But her power-hungry stepmother is leading a group of domestic terrorists in an effort to start another Civil War and frame Ellie as the instigator.
Ellie’s lost her father, her home, and her country, but nothing can rob her of her need to preserve the American dream…or what’s left of it.
Don’t miss Book 1 in a post-apocalyptic survival series with a dark, fairy-tale spin. It’s a home-run read for fans of The Maze Runner, The Lunar Chronicles, and The Selection Series.

About the Author
Lara Blaise Hues as been writing young adult fiction for over a decade. Inspired by the dozens of places she has been privileged to call home and her incredibly vivid dreams and relentless imagination, she mingles fantasy with the constant string of nearly-fictitious events of life.
She is happily married to a Foreign Area Officer for the United States Army and together, with their two daughters, they move around the world. Lara has lived in Utah, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Idaho, Arizona, Kentucky, Texas, California, Brasilia, Brazil, and Maryland; in that order. She speaks English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.
Lara writes the sort of books she likes to read; young adult fiction in everything from science fiction to dystopian to fairy-tale retellings. She delivers strong, smart, and audaciously honest characters who have no qualms about making themselves vulnerable to readers.
Her interest in cultures, people, and languages guided her to BYU-Hawaii, where she majored in Cultural Anthropology and earned a TESOL certificate. She is currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing from National University.
