Question: What does Laundry have to do with Desert 2 and 3?
From A. Tebbs:
"Oasis goes through some big changes in Desert 2 and 3. I can't say too much without spoiling the suspense, but both Tori and Alysse find themselves in really difficult circumstances.
Tori ends up washing clothes by hand as she tries to blend in with Dissenters. Like always, I prefer my scenes to be legit, so if I'm writing about something I haven't seen or experienced, I start researching or experimenting. In this case, I started washing our laundry by hand. With a big family, this is no small endeavor.
I figured it'd be good for my kids, so I ended up having them wash by hand as well. I think it's important to know how to be self-reliant, even when not needed.
Question: Just how bad does it get for Oasis in book 2 and 3?
Answer: Book 2 it's more just political turmoil while book 3 gets pretty scary. I haven't decided just how bad things get, but with Oasis being in the middle of the desert, it wouldn't take much for things to turn very bad.
Question: Any sneak peeks?
Answer: A few are coming, but only for Desert Insiders. If you want to join, just sign up for our newsletter. That's where they'll be released first.
Last Question: Why so long a wait for book 2?
Answer: I'd love to kick it out sooner, but this is a busy time in my life, and my family comes first. If I could do it over again, I would've written book 1 and 2 with 3 halfway done before releasing book 1. Call it a new author's mistake.
