UNTIL THE BEGINNING Blogfest, Day 3 (Dressing for the Apocalypse)

Welcome to Day 3 of the UNTIL THE BEGINNING blogfest, celebrating the release of UNTIL THE BEGINNING on May 5! Check down at the bottom of the page for a book giveaway!

For Book 1, I was asked by Romance Times Book Reviews to dress my characters using Pinterest.

Juneau starts AFTER THE END living in the wilderness of Alaska, post World War III (or so she thinks!). Here are the clothes I found for her:

For those of you who have read the book, you will know that she quickly has to adapt to a pseudo post-Apocalyptic existence to the real world of here and now. She also has to disguise herself as a boy to escape her would-be captors. Here are the clothes I found for that close shave, as well as for the rest of Book 2, UNTIL THE BEGINNING.

And for Miles, who plays his rich-kid ways down with a casual look (that leaves him completely unprepared for the off-roading that Juneau drags him into, I chose this wardrobe:

    Id say a warm coat, but thick warm socks and waterproof boots are just as important… I can’t wait for book two!

    I would definitely say a long coat that’s insulated to protect you from the cold. It also should have a high collar and a hood so you can zip it up and protect your face as well. I loved the first book I can’t wait for Until The Beginning to come out!

    Definitely good, sturdy boots!

  10. by bn100 - On April 26, 2015

    jacket

    Warm fluffy boots would be essential. As long as my feet were warm, I think I could handle everything else!

  12. by April Castillo - On April 26, 2015

    I would consider thermal underwear to be an essential piece of clothing if I lived in the Alaskan wild.

  13. by Amy - On April 26, 2015

    Boots!

    Thermal underwear, for sure!

  15. by Ana - On April 27, 2015

    A very heavy fleece jacket.

  16. by Karen Maldonado - On April 27, 2015

    A fur jacket like Juneau’s.

  17. by Sujey - On April 27, 2015

    I would need my snow boots.

  18. by Joelene - On April 27, 2015

    A warm fur coat to keep me from freezing!!

  19. by Amy Plum - On April 27, 2015

    Tamsan al-said has won this contest with the response of “thermals”. But I must say, all of your answers were spot-on. You would officially survive in the Alaskan wilderness. ;)

    Tamsan – send me your address. And everyone else…more to come!
