Where to get:

One hundred and fifty years ago, Earth was destroyed, and the remaining humans fled to the dusty red planet of Jutaire, where the only oxygen is manufactured, food is scarce, and death strikes often.

When Lissa's father discovers Earth still exists, she accidentally inhales the toxic air of Jutaire, and in one breath, discovers she isn't quite human.

Her father hangs for his discovery, and Lissa knows the Chancellors will come for her, for she saw the Earth that night too. With nothing to lose, she sets out to expose the truth. It isn't long before she meets Julian, a beautiful boy who can breathe the toxic air like she can - and shows her that the Jute, the original inhabitants of the planet, are more tangled in their lives than she knows.

But the Chancellors are only pawns in a greater game - one where the Jute control everything. Worse, the Jute plan to leave Jutaire for Earth, but to get there, they need her. And they'll stop at nothing until Lissa is in their clutches, even if they kill every human in the process.

The race for Earth has begun.

Unbreathable is a tale of love, redemption, and sacrifice, and one girl's struggle to find her place in a world where she doesn't belong.

What inspired you to write UNBREATHABLE?

Unbreathable was inspired by it's ex-first line: They search for Earth everyday. I never set out to write a space story, but when I sat and brainstormed lines that had never been used before, lines that could make someone sit up straighter, this was what came to mind.

Were there high times and low times during your writing process?

Hmm, not really! Unlike my other manuscripts, UNBREATHABLE was easy to write - the story never stopped flowing. 

Where do you do your best writing?

In bed. On my cell phone. In the dark. Really! But it might change. That was how the process was for UNBREATHABLE though.

What is your favorite thing about Halloween and why?

Candy! Chocolate! Must I give you a reason?

What are your favorite thing(s) to do during the fall season?

Oh, I love fall. Mostly because of the gorgeous weather and pretty clothing. My favorite thing would have to be hunting for fall desserts and making them. 

What is your favorite Halloween candy, fall drink, and fall food/desert?
I don't have a favorite candy, though I do prefer chocolate to candy. I don't have a favorite fall drink either. But fall food? Anything with pumpkin/pumpkin spice. Mmmmm.

What is your favorite book to read around the Halloween season?

I don't celebrate Halloween, so there's nothing specific. But this Halloween, I'm pretty sure I'll be reading ALLEGIANT, along with readers' reactions to UNBREATHABLE - which releases just two days before!

So, since I haven't been able to write the review for this book yet. I have decided to postpone the review at a later date (probably November or something) and instead for today I will be giving away 3 e-book copies of Unbreathable! This is my treat to you guys! So, enter the rafflecopter below and possibly win one of the 3 copies!
