H is for Hawaii


(This picture is of the Coast of Kona Hawaii)

In Sacrifice Her, Kale refers to Hawaii as "one of those unfortunate islands." During the Nuclear Wars, Hawaii was obliterated both for it's connection to a country as powerful as America and because warring countries were nuking islands to prevent people from fleeing to them as safe havens. My novella is set in the far off aftermath where most of what we'd consider modern technology is a far off memory.

  1. That's an interesting solution...nuking the islands to keep everyone landlocked.

  6. Oooh, what an interesting idea; nuking islands. I love it when future-topians tell me exactly how we got from my world to the world in the book. Sounds awesome!

  9. Gah! Just thinking about my fav place in the world no longer exising, (even if it's only in fiction) is really scary. Kona is so breathtaking and beautiful- I don't think pictures do it proper justice. :)

  10. I've never visited Hawaii, but it looks beautiful. Nuclear War is a very scary concept, that's alarmingly becoming more real.

  11. Wooo. I'm going to Hawaii in December. It'd better still be there! :) Sounds like an intriguing book.

  13. I lived there as tot, but remember nothing about it. It would be unfortunate if it were to be obliterated before I can visit again. ;-)

  14. That's very interesting. Some day I hope to go to Hawaii. My husband was stationed there for two years, and since he's a party pooper he has no desire to go back. :P

  15. No not Hawaii! I have to get there before your book becomes the truth! *Packing bags now* Your book sounds so interesting, even if Hawaii bit the dust!

  16. I've been to Hawaii and think it's beautiful, but I love the whole tragic idea of destroying it. :)

  17. Your novella's location and world sounds really fascinating. I went to Hawaii on my honeymoon, and I can not wait to go back there again some day! Snorkeling in Hanauma Bay on Oahu was my favorite. :)

    Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines
