Welcome to The Murder Complex Blog Tour. I am VERY interested for this book. I plan on reading it next and I can barely contain my nerves and excitement. This is so up my alley. I felt honored in getting the chance to interview the author behind this crazy book. I hope you guys enjoy getting to know Lindsay and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end.
The Murder Complex #1
Publisher: GreenWillow Books
Genre: Dystopia, Thriller, Young Adult
An action-packed, blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate. For fans of Moira Young’s Dust Lands series, La Femme Nikita, and the movie Hanna.
The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is—although he doesn’t know it—one of the MC’s programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family?
Lindsay: When I wrote TMC, I was in a pretty tough health situation. I wanted to write a story about strength and weakness, about family and fear. Writing TMC just sort of happened, and I’m so thankful that it did!
Lindsay: I think I surprised myself. I didn’t know I was capable of falling so in love with a story, that even after I had read it 30 times, editing over and over and over again, I could still sit down with that same book and think, “Man…I love that story.”
Jennifer: Did you have to do a lot of research for The Murder Complex? Did what you find make a big impact on how your book turned out?
Lindsay: I actually didn’t do much research at all. I like to write what I know, what I’ve experienced in life, so that it really feels honest and true. For me, that meant writing the book in Florida, a place where I grew up! I could really put my heart and soul into that setting, and it was a blast, too!
Lindsay: I’m a lefty. I eat Paleo 5 days of the week, and the other 2, I give up and eat ALL THE FOOD. I played on the all-boy’s ice hockey team in high school!
Jennifer: Who are your favorite authors?
Lindsay: I LOVE THEM ALL. JK Rowling, Suzanne Collins, Marie Lu, Beth Revis, Lauren Oliver, my buddy Victoria Scott, Jonathan Maberry, Scott Westerfeld. Too many, man! Too many!
