Blog Tour: REMADE by Serial Box An Excerpt & Giveaway

Hey everyone! I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the blog tour for REMADE! 

I have an excerpt to share with you today! And make sure to enter the giveaway below!

Haven't heard of REMADE? Check it out!

Title: REMADE 
Author: Matthew Cody, Andrea Phillips, Gwenda Bond, E. C. Myers, and Amy Rose Capetta
Pub. Date: November 15, 2017
Publisher: Serial Box
Formats: eBook & audiobook
Serial fiction startup Serial Box has been featured from coast to coast including stories on NPRWiredBuzzFeed and i09. Serial Box was called “a godsend for a niche market of readers” by The Chicago Tribune.

ReMade is one of Serial Box’s first attempts at YA dystopian fiction, and it’s already making splashes.

In one moment the lives of twenty-three teenagers are forever changed, and it’s not just because they all happen to die. “ReMade” in a world they barely recognize one with robots, space elevators, and unchecked jungle they must work together to survive. They came from different places, backgrounds, and families, and now they might be the last people on earth. Lost meets The Maze Runner in exciting serial adventure. Season 2 finds the ReMades in search of the last of humanity on a perilous journey away from what’s left of the caretakers and Arcadia.

In true Serial Box fashion of trying to cross over many mediums, season 1 of ReMade has also been turned into a podcast available for free on all major podcast platforms (and one week early on TuneIn’s First Play program). The release of the podcast is meant to coincide with season 2. The podcast will release the final episode of season 1 on the same day as episode 1 of season 2 is released on the Serial Box platforms and wherever ebooks are sold.

Team-written by some of today’s most exciting authors, ReMade season 2 is brought to you by Matthew Cody (Super), Andrea Phillips (Revision), Gwenda Bond (Girl on a Wire), E. C. Myers (The Silence of Six), and Amy Rose Capetta (Echo After Echo).
Now on to the excerpt.

Teddy hated those red eyes with a vehemence he had never before felt.

That camera was everything false and wrong about his life, his constant companion. Soon, his only companion.

Inez burst through the door, still wearing her cheerleader uniform. The camera hadn’t provided them with other outfits, but it didn’t really matter. The cheerleader and the football player would have their good-bye.

She looked over her shoulder, visibly nervous. Her hand kept going to that spot at the bottom of her throat.

“Hey, Carmen,” Teddy said, leaning in for a quick kiss. Inez’s lips were soft and dry against his. She pulled back and smiled, something wild in her eyes. Now he was supposed to say, We’ll still see each other. And then she’d say, But it won’t be the same.

Instead, Teddy found himself blurting out, “Do you really have to go?”

She glanced at the door she’d come through, then the door between them and the train.

“Teddy, I’m sorry. It kills me that I have to leave. I know how long it’s taken you to really connect with someone. And I’m so glad it was me. I’m so glad it was us. It doesn’t have to end here.” She stared up at him intensely, some unfathomable meaning behind her dark eyes.

“I mean it,” he said, abandoning the script for good. “Even if it was never real, I’m glad I had you. I’ll never forget you.”

She went up on her tiptoes, throwing her arms around his neck. That’s what Carmen had done. But Inez sounded incredulous as she whispered in his ear. “You’d really give it all up so I could be free, wouldn’t you?”

He pulled her in tight, burying his face in her hair. She didn’t smell like Carmen.

Actually, she smelled weird. Like chemicals or smoke. Teddy followed her lead and whispered, too. He wouldn’t mess this up. “I can always think of you, free. It would have killed me to see you slowly fade away here. Knowing you’re out there somewhere, it’ll be enough.”

“You big idiot,” she said.

The door to the train station opened outward on its own.

Inez grabbed his hand and walked through it, her painful grip the only indication of how nervous she was. She looked back at the waiting room, muttering “come on, come on,” under her breath.

Instead of a door opening on the train, a whole section of the side of the train car slid open. The camera was directly behind them, watching. Waiting.

Inez stepped toward the train.

That’s when Teddy smelled smoke. Way more than what he had smelled in Inez’s hair.

“What the He turned to see black, acrid smoke pouring into the waiting room from the doorway.

The camera made a painful metal shriek, moving faster than Teddy had ever seen it go. It disappeared into the smoke.

“Told you I’d burn your house down!” Inez dropped his hand, slamming the door back into the train station shut. “You were right about the gas line to that candle. Almost blew myself up. Worth it.” She dragged one of the metal benches toward the train station door.

Teddy watched, mystified.

“Help me, dammit!”

He grabbed the other side of the bench and they jammed it into place in front of the door.
The land around them was blank and featureless, not a building to be seen on the horizon.

“Which direction should we go?”

The door behind them screeched as the robot tried to smash through.

“No time to run!” Inez pulled him onto the train. The side of the train slid silently shut.

They turned to find a red eye staring at them from a console. Inez screamed.
