“Experiment 318: Gone Rogue”

 Shay is scientific experiment #318. Science may have created her, but she refuses to allow it to blind her to the difference between right and wrong…

Synthetic Hominid Assumed Youth (S.H.A.Y.) is eighteen years old, which means she has completed Phase One: Developmental. Shay no longer requires the assistance of her Optional Human Parent, Darla, who has guided her in the process of discovering her morality. Shay loves her easy, charming life aboard the marine research facility and doesn’t want it to change.

Phase Two: Experimental. All S.H.A.Y. ages 18-20 will experience loss…

Darla shouldn’t have to die because of an experiment. The thought of losing the only parent she’s ever known is too much. Determined to make sure the scientists at the facility don’t get their way, Shay entraps Darla in a transport device to escape across the Miami Border. There, on the mainland, law enforcement will keep her human parent safe.

Escape Mission: Failed…

Shay crashes into one of the Lone Keys off the coast of Florida, abandoned to all humanity, except for the stranger who drags her ashore. Shay must get Darla to safety or she will die of radiation poisoning trapped inside the Freeze Portal, but Shay can’t do it alone.

The boy who found her, an Ersatz Reproduction Intelligence Clone (E.R.I.C.), is her only hope. He has adaptation skills she needs to complete her mission. Eric was created by the same scientists who want to kill Darla, though. She tries to keep their interaction strictly business, but it’s hard to hate him. He’s flirty, charming and not to mention devastatingly handsome.

Shay must put her trust in Eric’s hands if she wants to save Darla from her fate. It may be worth her heart, but will it be worth her life?

Read an Excerpt

S.H.A.Y. argues with the E.R.I.C.

“Well then, I’m not going to get in the water.” I bent over, grabbing my clothes. He helped me, handing me my shirt.

I snatched it from him. “I’ll just wait up here for you to get back.”

He laughed, poking me in the stomach. “Look, creampuff, I’m not going in without you.”

Oh yes you will, or I’ll—”

“You’ll what? Talk to yourself some more?”

I narrowed my eyes at him, stumbling as I tugged my pants on.

“You’re the one who needs my help, remember?”

“You make me sick.” My shirt slipped down over my head and I struggled with the buttons.

 He smiled. “Take your clothes off.”

 “Don’t tell me what to do.”

 Amie groaned. She stood beside me, rolling her eyes. “You’re just creating more and more sexual tension with the E.R.I.C. Soon, you’ll forget all about your Darla and I’ll have no human mother for S.H.A.Y. 319.”

 “I won’t!” I unzipped my pants again. “I’ll do whatever it takes to save them both.”

 Eric backed away. “Whoa, there, I was just teasing you.”

 “I’m not talking to you.”

 He rolled his eyes. “Right, I forgot, you have others here with you.”

 “I’m not doing this for you, you’re the enemy. I’m trying to save my, my—”

 “You’re trying to save your ‘what’ exactly?”

 “It doesn’t concern you. Just follow me into the water. That way, we can get started.”

 “Are you hitting on me?” His eyes widened. “I enjoy a little banter and all, but—”

 I shoved him. “Like I’d ever flirt with you.”

Apex Reviews Official Interview

Official Apex Reviews Interview: Christina Pritchard (CIN)

Thanks for joining us for this interview, Christina. We’re looking forward to sharing more about your book with our readers.

What inspired you to pen this quite engaging tale of the challenges of young adulthood?
I had a dream actually. There were two teenagers (Alex & Ally), a sign that said C I N and lightning in the background. That was it. I was at work scribbling this dream down when Tony, my boss’ father came in and asked me what I was doing. I told him my dream and he automatically starts quoting “Lynn, Lynn, the city of sin. You never come out the way you went in.” This grabbed my interest and as he was telling me about the history of Lynn, my story began piecing itself together!!

How were you able to craft Lisa’s character in such vivid, lifelike fashion?

Well, I based Lisa on myself and youngest sister. We are very similar in personality but completely opposite at the same time. I thought that combining our two personalities would make a rather mixed up character ;o)

Are Alex and Ally meant to be as strange as they seem?

Yes, I thought about letting them gradually become weirder and weirder but, that’s been done so many times and I am a more ‘to the point’ kind of person.

The story gets quite a bit “steamy” in some parts. Were you at all apprehensive about exposing young readers to somewhat “mature” content?

It was much steamier originally. I cut a lot out. Initially, I didn’t plan to leave those scenes in at all, they were practice scenes so that I could learn to put passion and angst into a story – this was a suggestion [adding passion and angst into a novel] from Heather Baror, Literary Agent from Baror International, for another book I’ve written. I took everything she said to heart and decided to leave some of the ‘scenes’ in there especially after reading some of the books she suggested. It was a tough decision for me though.

What kinds of responses have you gotten to the book thus far?

So far, people have said that the book is hard to put down and has great potential for the big screen.  C I N even received an honorable mention in the Teenage Category from the Hollywood Book Festival this month! I’d really love to see this come to life on the big screen.

Also, one person did say I needed to flesh out some of my characters though which I plan to work on.

What’s the main message that you’d like readers to take away from the story?

I really think it is important for young adults to know that there is a place for them in this world. They have to make that place though. No one can do it for you.

What can readers look forward to in future installments of the CIN series?

More details about Pig and Rat, a love triangle they won’t be expecting, more in-depth stories of other characters and some things I can’t tell you yet! ;o)

How can our readers learn more about you and your ongoing efforts?

They can follow me on several sites:

My Official Blog – teeny120.wordpress.com
Facebook -facebook.com/teeny120
Myspace – myspace.com/teeny120
Social Network [work in progress] – http://teeny120.spruz.com/

How can they contact you directly?

I answer all my emails personally: clp120@ymail.com

Any final thoughts you’d like to share?

I am more interested in having my book read than anything else. So, for a limited time, I am offering my story C I N, free of charge (in PDF format only) to anyone who promises to write am honest review. Details on this deal can be found at: http://teeny120.spruz.com/ or my blog: https://teeny120.wordpress.com/

Thanks again, Christina, and best of continued success to you in all your endeavors!

Same to you!!

Dada’s Restaurant

Dada’s has to be my absolute favorite restaurant of all time! Inside a small 1920’s house is an multifarious eating experience combined with poetry readings and local bands on select nights.

Dada’s is open until 2 am and has a great variety of unique servers. One actually wears an authentic kilt. Some are covered in tattoos and then there is the occasional ‘normal’ chap too.

The downs: Sometimes they are out of certain drinks and/or meals but don’t let that stop you from giving them a try!
