-author of Forget Me Not (February 17th, 2014)

Oh what a lovely (and slightly horrifying gif).

When I first heard about Stacey's upcoming release, I was like, WOW. I need to read this book. And I do need it very badly. It is sounds way too amazing.

Title: Forget Me Not (Collective #1)
Author: Stacey Nash
Shelves: Young Adult, Fantasy, Science Fiction
Publication Date: February 17th, 2014
Publisher: Entranced Publishing


Summary from Goodreads: Since her mother vanished nine years ago, Anamae and her father have shared a quiet life. But when Anamae discovers a brooch identical to her mother's favorite pendant, she unknowingly invites a slew of trouble into their world. When the brooch and the pendant are worn together they're no longer pretty pieces of jewelry -- they're part of a highly developed technology capable of cloaking the human form. Triggering the jewelry's power attracts the attention of a secret society determined to confiscate the device -- and silence everyone who is aware of its existence. Anamae knows too much, and now she's Enemy Number One. 

She's forced to leave her father behind when she's taken in by a group determined to keep her safe. Here Anamae searches for answers about this hidden world. With her father kidnapped and her own life on the line, Anamae must decide if saving her dad is worth risking her new friends’ lives. No matter what she does, somebody is going to get hurt.

Fiction is Fact. Know the Truth.

Random Facts About Forget Me Not

I’m excited to be here as part of New Books, New Year. Thank you for including me, Jayne! We’re going to have a bit of fun today with some random facts about the book and I’m giving away an ARC too! Fun stuff.  

Random Facts about Forget Me Not;
1.      The main character is called Anamae. Her name is pronounced like the Japanese style cartoons. Although that’s not where it came from, it’s a family name.
2.      I like to call this story Urban Sci-fi. I know there’s no such genre, but it’s set in a contemporary world with advanced, sci-fi technology.
3.      The technology includes; invisibility, teleportation, telepathy, and protection shields.
4.      The advanced technology is a big secret, controlled by a hidden society called the Collective who have access to the majority of it.
5.      There’s a love interest who’s not the first boy we meet in the book. He actually belongs to the secret Anamae accidently falls into.
6.      The pendant Anamae finds is an antique that belonged to her mother and it’s shaped like a forget-me-not flower. That’s partly were the book’s title comes from.
7.      Forget Me Not is book one in a four book series. It’s the only book of the series with a single narrator, Anamae.
