Chalk this post up to, “Kristen has been trapped in her house for days because of the snow” if you must…
I thought I’d show y’all some of what I imagined as I was writing TABULA RASA.
Sarah, my main character, is undergoing a cutting-edge procedure to remove her memories and render her a tabula rasa — a blank slate. (Note to self: do not ever ever ever again blithely search for “brain surgery” pictures on the internet. NOT EVER.)
Here are a few (non-graphic) images to get you oriented to Sarah’s world as the story opens.
I imagined the hospital where she’s being treated as looking ultra modern. Something like this house:
The hospital itself is situated in a remote place like this:
Although it’s winter and a blizzard hits, so things look more like this outside:
Then Sarah hears a couple of these overhead:

So there it is! I hope that whets your appetite a bit. I did promise another ARC-giveaway contest soon, and it’s coming, I swears. Fun and book-related swag are just around the blog corner. I have a cool idea for a particular giveaway item, but I need to make sure it’ll work out. I promise you it’s not a voucher for free memory-eradication surgery.
Oh, and here’s a bit of late-breaking news: I just found out that TABULA RASA has sold at auction in Poland! I’m completely chuffed about it, and I can’t even begin to wrap my mind around my book being translated to another language. Pierogies for everybody!
