Earth, circa 2047 is another world, in my Wildblood series. A generation after what my characters refer to as World War Last, Earth is unrecognizable. The tiny pocket of civilization known as The Vista still struggles to survive the harsh weather of the north, while dealing with less-than-friendly scavengers. The electric grid is unreliable at best and other resources are stretched.
Can you imagine a world without electricity? I try not to, especially in the summer, when 100 degrees F. is a real thing where I live. My characters have to deal with the cold, but they are resourceful. Me? I love my air conditioner.
What modern device would you miss the most? I think my coffee maker might actually be first on the list, because it’s only hot here 6 or 7 months a year.
I’ve finished the draft of Renegades: Book 2 of The Wildblood and it’ll be out to readers this weekend. Release date is leaning towards Sept., 2016. In the meantime, a promo for The Vista: Book 1 of The Wildblood.

The Vista: Book 1 of The Wildblood
5 Star review!
The Vista is fast paced with lots of action and suspense and covers a lot of territory in the vastness of post apocalyptic United States. S. A. Hoag creates characters who are not only believable and enduring but who lead and direct the narrative, carrying us along in their wake. This is dystopian fiction at its best. Looking forward to the sequel.
