    For those missing The 100 (or who want free books) 

    Hello my friends! You may not know this, but I’m kiiiiiiind of obsessed with the CW’s show THE 100. It’s full of all the things I love about good TV: smart writing, complex, interesting characters, thorny ethical questions, and super high stakes. The show’s film, costume, and make-up geniuses have brought the world beautifully, brutally to life, and the writers have created such a visceral storytelling style that I am literally on the edge of my seat and hardly breathing through practically every episode. What I love most about it, though, is how much it makes me THINK. What would I do in that situation? Would I have the guts or the smarts to do what was necessary? Could I make that call? It’s a brilliant show, and if you haven’t seen it yet, get thee to Netflix!


    Unfortunately for us all, though, THE 100 won’t be gracing our TV screens again until 2016. Sad face!! So, what are we to do in the meantime? Weeeell, I’d like to offer two humble suggestions!

    First, if you haven’t checked them out yet, read THE 100, DAY 21, and HOMECOMING by Kass Morgan, the books the TV series is based on! (Especially if you’re a Bellarke fan. ;-)) The books are quite different from the show, but they’re equally entertaining. And there are a few goodies for fans (cough Bellarke cough) that we haven’t seen on the show yet.

    Second, take a gander at my book REBEL WING. If you like the action and female badassery of THE 100, you're in luck! REBEL WING has war, secret political plotting, and lots of strong, complex female characters. And if you liked Octavia’s journey from sheltered girl to badass warrior, you may particularly enjoy the main character Aris’s transformation from a girl who’d give up everything for love, to a soldier who discovers there’s so much more to fight for. Oh, and have I mentioned Aris and her friends have to disguise themselves as men to join the war effort? Yeah, they’re pretty hardcore. ;-)

    If you scroll down, you’ll find the official description of REBEL WING, BUT before you do that, let me tell you about the AMAZING giveaway I’m running!! My buddy Kass, along with Alloy Entertainment, have given me some incredible prizes to share with you! In addition to winning a signed paperback of REBEL WING, one lucky winner will also receive the COMPLETE THE 100 book series (all three books!!) signed by Kass Morgan herself! AND Alloy has donated some super cool THE 100 swag too. Um, AWESOME! If you’d like to enter, check out the Rafflecopter giveaway below.

    Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ll follow me on Twitter so we can angst together while we wait for season 3, and you can tell me what you think of Rebel Wing. (Also, I enjoy any and all Lincoln pics/gifs/fan art. Share any gloriousness you find with me, pretty please!)

    Final note: You do NOT have to be a 100 fan to enter this contest. However, if you win, you may become one. You've been warned! ;-)

    Tracy Banghart

    The Dominion of Atalanta is at war. But for eighteen-year-old Aris, the fighting is nothing more than a distant nightmare, something she watches on news vids from the safety of her idyllic seaside town. Then her boyfriend, Calix, is drafted into the Military, and the nightmare becomes a dangerous reality.

    Left behind, Aris has nothing to fill her days. Even flying her wingjet—the thing she loves most, aside from Calix—feels meaningless without him by her side. So when she's recruited to be a pilot for an elite search-and-rescue unit, she leaps at the chance, hoping she'll be stationed near Calix. But there's a catch: She must disguise herself as a man named Aristos. There are no women in the Atalantan Military, and there never will be.

    Aris gives up everything to find Calix: her home. Her family. Even her identity. But as the war rages on, Aris discovers she's fighting for much more than her relationship. With each injured person she rescues and each violent battle she survives, Aris is becoming a true soldier--and the best flyer in the Atalantan Military. She's determined to save her Dominion . . . or die trying.


    Book 2, STORM FALL, is out now and book 3 will release this August. Cover and title reveal coming soon!

    Hello, my friends! I apologize for the silent treatment! Ever since Storm Fall's release I've been in my writing cave working on Rebel Wing #3, which is coming to you this summer!

But I wanted to pop in and let you know that I'm currently running a Goodreads giveaway for TWO signed copies of the REBEL WING paperback, which comes out on June 2! Here's the link, if you'd like to enter!

    Alright...deep breaths...TODAY'S THE DAY!! STORM FALL is out in the world!! (If you read it on NetGalley, I would be HUGELY grateful if you'd post your review on Amazon. Big hugs!)


    Below you'll find today's teaser, and another link to the giveaway. And, of course, a link to STORM FALL!

    Happy birthday my little book baby. You know what they say about how writing sequels is super hard and will tear out bits of your soul? ...Totally true. This book was probably the hardest for me to write. And I did it in quite a short amount of time. But despite the late nights and angst, I'm SO happy with the way it turned out. I love Aris and Dysis and Galena, my trifecta of strong women. I love how they rise to their challenges in this book. I love that the story explores more of what's happening with Atalanta's enemy...what's going on within the Military's ranks...and how the story progresses the relationships between the different characters. More than anything, though, I can't wait to hear what all of you think! I hope you love it!

    Download your copy now!

    Teaser Time!

    A quick reminder, here's the description for STORM FALL:

    In the action-packed sequel to Rebel Wing, Aris battles for life and love . . . and not everyone will survive. 

    Aris Haan gave up everything to join the Atalantan Military: her family, her boyfriend, even her identity. In the end, though, it didn’t matter that she was a war hero. When the all-male Military discovered that she was actually a woman, she was sent home and erased from history. 

    Now she has a chance to go back to the battlefield—as herself. But as hard as it was to be a soldier in disguise, it’s even more difficult now. The men in her unit undermine her at every turn. The Safaran army has spies everywhere, perhaps even on Aris’s stationpoint. And she’s falling for her mysterious superior officer, Milek. But their relationship is forbidden, just stolen moments between training sessions and missions. There’s no room for love in war. 

    Then Aris discovers that Safara’s leaders have set their sights on her, Atalanta’s hero. And she must find them before they find her . . .
