A couple of months ago we announced that AWP would be releasing author Brittni Brinn’s newest novel, A Place That Used to Be. We are big fans of this book (and of Brittni herself!), and are very excited to see it released into the wild.
Due to the pandemic, some of our launch plans for A Place That Used to Be have been altered. There will still be a traditional launch and reading, however it is postponed until the world opens up enough for such gatherings. In the meantime, there will be a digital launch for the book, so stay tuned for info on that in the near future.
Alright, without further ado, we present the cover reveal for A Place That Used to Be by Brittni Brinn!
“There were three of them, ragged Grafters with dirty clothes and greasy hair. One wore a pair of wire-rimmed glasses. Another was holding Rhonda’s satchel. The third pointed a makeshift spear at Milo’s throat.”
Five years have passed since the mysterious Event wiped out most of human civilization. Trading caravans travel between nascent settlements. Lawless scavengers called Grafters prowl the wasteland in increasing numbers.
Rhonda and Milo have made the best of the truncated school building they call home, growing vegetables and making short films to keep themselves occupied. But when Milo suspects a growing illness, the two of them will have to decide: will they stay where they are, or will they journey through the dangerous realm of the wasteland?
In this sequel to The Patch Project, nostalgia and hope shape each character’s search for a place to belong in an unforgiving world.
