Seize The Moment: Tristina Wright Talks Sliders
Several of the books that we have coming out in October, including Seize Today by Pintip Dunn and Never Apart by Romily Bernard, are about characters who, for one reason or another, realize that they have to live for the moment. We asked our authors about a moment in their own life that made you want to live for the present rather than worry about the future, or about a fave character from a book, tv show, or movie who inspired them to do the same
And now, here’s Tristina Wright, the author of 27 Hours:
When I was in high school, one of my favorite shows was Sliders. It was the story of four friends trapped in alternate universes of Earth, sliding between dimensions as they tried to find their way home. Sometimes they were trapped in a strange world for mere moments. Other times, weeks on end, struggling to adapt to a place that could become forever.
It was a show that taught me as a teen to appreciate what I had in the moment. To be grateful for the life I had, the family I had, the friends and loved ones I had. That everything in life is fleeting.
To live now.
About 27 Hours (The Nightside Saga, #1):
Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.
But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.
Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother’s shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon’s darkest secret.
They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.
During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.
