Hey Patrice ~ I LOVE this story idea! You have my complete blessing.
Hugh Howey, author of WOOL
Karma lives in the Silo, deep underground. She lives with a man whom she barely knows and with a name she doesn’t remember choosing. When visions come to her about another husband, another way of life, and another world, Karma struggles to discover what came before.
Outside, there is only the swirl of toxic clouds and an endless darkness broken by the rare glimpse of a faded sun or a dim star.
Slowly, Karma learns where the real power is, and how to survive in this hellish concrete cylinder. Birth, death, love, murder, uprisings and Cleanings come and go over the years, but still she carries on.
Beaten but unbowed, Karma vows to preserve her memories of life above for those who will never breathe the open air.
Praise for Patrice Fitzgerald and the Karma series
The author does a fantastic job of retaining the atmosphere and claustrophobia of life underground and the characters are carefully constructed, exploring not only the effects of Silo life on the family dynamic, but the often complex relationships between the different Silo classes through the eyes of Karma and her family as she realises who she really is and has to decide whether to remain subdued and forget her past life, or choose a different path than the one chosen for her and challenge the status quo.
Eamon Ambrose, from his website “Eamo the Geek”
Make no mistake, this is a must-read part of the WOOL saga and I consider it as vital as Howey’s three entries. The actual tie-ins to Howey’s books are both unique in fan-literature and satisfying. Great story, great writing, and great author.
Fitzgerald has created another masterpiece here with Cleaning Up. It’s as good, if not better than, The Sky Used to be Blue. She has such an immediate style of writing which grips you from the start and takes you on a wild journey through the desperate lives of those living in the Silo.
W.J. Davies, author of The Runner and The Diver
A definite PLUS to the Wooliverse, and a must read if you want to be well-versed in all things WOOL!
Michael Bunker, author of Pennsylvania, The Silo Archipelago, and WICK
I think I’m in love with Karma. I was curious about her life when Hugh Howey mentioned her in SHIFT. I highly recommend, not just this book, but this whole series! Read them all. You won’t regret it… I can’t wait for the next/ last book!
Hanna Elizabeth, author of Visions of Wool
Fitzgerald’s characters come alive and threaten to leap off the page, they are so engaging.
Jerilyn Dufresne, author of Who Killed My Boss? Any Meat in that Soup? and the Sam Darling Mysteries
The Sky Used to be Blue manages the difficult feat of placing itself within the existing narrative, just like a missing piece of the great puzzle, and not just a parallel story or spinoff. It is well-written, gripping and filled with suspense. All the ingredients necessary are here: good writing, action and unexpected twists, characters you care about, and a deeper meaning.
