Today is the blog blitz, organised by author Y. Correa, mod of the Indie Author Support Group on Goodreads – you can find out more about the group and Y here. For my piece on the blitz I’m featuring young adult writer and excellent all-round writing buddy – Tony Talbot! You may have seen my review of his latest book Eight Mile Island earlier this year. Tony is a regular blogger on my other blog Aside from Writing, and I’m excited to have him here as my guest today!
PS. If you’d like to see my feature, author Stephanie Hurt is hosting me at her blog here.
Mary Tanaka is an all American Girl until the attack on Pearl Harbor makes her something terrible: Japanese. And when the US Government decides all the Japanese within a hundred miles of the west coast should be moved inland to prison camps, she has no choice but to go.

About the Author: Tony Talbot was born in the 1970s and started writing in 2008 after a dream he had and couldn’t shake. American Girl was his third book, and he’s currently editing his next book and planning the book after, tentatively called, ‘Dome’.
