“Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it.
Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window”. William Faulkner

In new releases, the thriller meets survival story 'After the lights go out' by Australian author Lili Wilkinson.

What happens when the lights go out, after what might truly be an apocalyptic event? How do you stay alive? Who do you trust? How much do you have to sacrifice? The answering story is utterly terrifying, but also filled with family, hope, love and possibility.
Seventeen-year-old Pru Palmer lives with her twin sisters, Grace and Blythe, and their father, Rick, on the outskirts of an isolated mining community. The Palmers are doomsday preppers. They have a bunker filled with non-perishable food and a year's worth of water. Each of the girls has a 'bug out bag', packed with water purification tablets, protein bars, paracord bracelets and epipens for Pru's anaphylaxis.

One day the power goes out at the Palmers' house and in the closest town. No one knows why. All communication is cut too and It doesn't take long for everything to begin to unravel. In town, supplies run out and people get desperate. The sisters decide to keep their bunker a secret. The world is different now; the rules are different. Survival is everything, and family comes first.

I just started After the Lights Go Out this weekend and so far it has been unputdownable! In true Lili Wilkinson style, the characters are such convincing teenagers even when put into incredible circumstances. It’s impossible not to find yourself rooting for these guys at the end of the world as you try to imagine your own teenage self in the same scenarios. Such an enjoyable #loveozya read! (Not to mention educational - I’m taking more than a few doomsday prepper notes...)

Sorry for the late post, ya boi has been super busy today 🤘 but on the plus side, I’m going to be an expert in chess books while simultaneously being the worst chess player by the time I leave my two jobs 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️
✨How gorgeous is this cover??? I think I may actually be in love with it, not gonna lie

This book is one hell of a ride! To all those who, like me, were nervous about reading this (I hate the idea of people turning on each other) - don't be. It's surprisingly positive in the end, and enjoyable in the way mc Pru is so damn practical, taught by her doomsday prepper dad 😱

I also loved other characters like the most excellent blow-in from the city, Mateo; his mum and townspeople like Violet 😍

Read it - you'll be on the edge of your seat, cheering them on. And swearing to stop relying on all things electrical & technological (yeah, right!). More fabulous writing from @lililiwilkinson
