10 Facts + Giveaway: Revolutionary (Anomaly #3) by Krista McGee



Revolutionary (Anomaly #3)
Release Date: 07/15/14
Thomas Nelson Publishers

Summary from Goodreads:
All her life Thalli thought she was an anomaly. Now she must use her gifts to fulfill the role she was called to play: Revolutionary.

Back in the underground State against her will, Thalli is no longer the anomaly she was before. She has proven herself to be a powerful leader aboveground and returns with information that Dr. Loudin needs to complete his plan of uniting the world under one leader: himself. But he, too, has information. A secret he has kept from Thalli her entire life. A secret that, once revealed, changes everything about the person Thalli thought she was.

Hoping to help Thalli rise up against the Scientists, both Berk and Alex join her underground, but their presence only brings more trouble for her. Now Dr. Loudin knows just the leverage to use on his captive, and she is forced to choose between the two of them. Is her first love her true love? Or does Alex ultimately claim her heart?

Unsure of everything around her, including her own identity, Thalli doesn’t know where to turn. She knows she needs the Designer, but he seems further away than ever. What she does know, though, is that if she doesn’t do something to stop Loudin, the fragile world aboveground will be lost once and for all.

Ten Facts About Revolutionary

1.I was able to sit in on the titling meeting for this novel (a rare opportunity, because I live in Tampa and my publisher is in Nashville)

2.Revolutionary has 71,167 words in it

3.I wrote Revolutionary last summer (May-July, 2013)

4.I hadn’t determined the details of Revolutionary’s plot when I finished Luminary

5.I modeled Thalli’s physical appearance after my oldest daughter, Emma

6.I wrote much of the novel at my local Panera Bread

7.Sometimes, when I was home writing at home, I would walk the hallway and have conversations with myself about the plot (I had to control myself when I was at Panera)

8.I haven’t read another dystopian novel since I finished writing Revolutionary (okay, to be honest, I started Allegiant, but then I heard about the ending, got frustrated and stopped)

9.I named several of the secondary characters after friends and family

10.My editor, Becky Monds, encouraged me throughout the creating of this novel, “Don’t be afraid to kill people!”
