Blog Tour: Erased (Altered #2) by Jennifer Rush (Question & Giveaway!)

I was honored to be approached by Little, Brown to participate in this early blog tour for Erased, the sequel to one of my favorite reads this year, Altered by Jennifer Rush! I got to ask the author one question, so I thought I'd get us a few hints as to what we can expect in Erased this January. Check out the author's answer, and enter to win an ARC of Erased!


Erased (Altered, #2)
Title: Erased (Altered #2) 
Author: Jennifer Rush
Publisher: Little, Brown Books
Releases: January 7, 2014
Find It On: Goodreads


They thought they had escaped. They were wrong.

After fleeing the Branch with Sam, Cas, and Nick, Anna is trying to make sense of the memories resurfacing from her old life. At the same time, she's learning how to survive in hiding, following Sam's rules: Don't draw attention to yourself. Always carry a weapon. Know your surroundings. Watch your back.

Then a figure from Anna's childhood reappears. Is it a Branch setup, or could it be the reunion Anna has hoped for? Uncertain of where her loyalties lie, Anna must fight to learn the truth -- before she is betrayed again. Ultimately, the answers hinge on one question: What was the real reason her memories were erased?

Jennifer Rush delivers a thrilling sequel to Altered in a novel packed with mysteries, lies, and surprises that are sure to keep readers guessing until the last page is turned.


What are three things we can look forward to in Erased?

A great question! 

1. Answers -- Readers will get a lot of answers that may have been lingering after reading Altered. They'll learn more about the Branch--how it was created, and who runs it, and what their plans are moving forward. Altered focused on the Altered program, and Erased will focus on a new program, one the Branch has been working to implement for some time.

2. Family -- Anna is on a mission to learn more about her past, specifically her family, but the things she learns are not at all what she expected. 

3. Nick -- I think I've mentioned this pretty much all over the Internet--Nick is my favorite of the Altered boys! I love a dark, brooding bad boy, and Nick definitely fits that description, but in Erased readers will see a bit of his softer side (what little there is of it) and they'll learn more about his past, and how Anna fits into it.


Jennifer Rush lives in a little town on the shoreline of Lake Michigan with her husband and two children. She grew up wanting to be an Egyptologist, but realized she hated the desert and declared herself a writer instead. She won her first writing award in the fourth grade (a Mickey Mouse pencil was the prize) and has been crafting stories ever since. In her free time, she likes to read, Photoshop, and consume large amounts of caffeine. Her debut YA, ALTERED, released Jan 2013 from Little, Brown. The sequel to Altered, ERASED, releases Jan 2014.
