Hello! I hope you're enjoying LOVE IS THE DRUG as much as I am! What's not to love about a devastating plague and a government conspiracy plot?

Johnsonloveisthedrug by PinkyMcCoversong

Let's get into the mood with some spooky shots of DC:

The Grotto by theworldisavampire  Hope and Glory by futurowoman  soldier gazes back by futurowoman  Heavenly Light by aponom

 Capitol 5 by mikeypetrucciMetro by whitebengal13

And now for the discussion questions!

  • 1. How do you feel about the setting? Do you think it adds more tension to the story to have it set in the nation's capitol? How would it be different if this were set in a small town?
  • 2. It's not hard to imagine what it must feel like for Bird to be so under pressure from her parents to be a certain way, act a certain way, go to a certain college, have a certain future. How are you anticipating that Bird's feelings about her parents's wishes will change as mysteries unravel, and as she undergoes personal traumas of her own?

  • 3. Race plays a major role in LOVE IS THE DRUG, and in most of Alaya Dawn Johnson's work. I'm finding it striking how much LITD is paralleling current events, intentionally or not. How does this make you feel, while you're following Bird and the other characters in the book navigate their world?

  • 4. How about you ask some questions? I want to hear what you want to talk about this month, at mid-point. 

Audience participation?

For extra points, imagine that the v flu infected your town. What would you do? Write a short scene (500-1000 words) about this.

Remember, our prize this month is awesome:

Johnsonthesummerprince by PinkyMcCoversong

The top participant this month will receive a hardcover copy of Alaya Dawn Johnson's last book, THE SUMMER PRINCE, thanks to Arthur A. Levine Books/Scholastic. To win the prize, contribute awesome stuff to the discussion, and participate in the activities!

And, while we're on prizes, the big winner of the box o' books for January-June is AGMeade! YAY! AGMeade, get in touch with me, and I'll send you your winnings.

I am kinda new to deviant art and haven't been able to figure out how to enter contests and how to post things in clubs I am apart of. if anyone who reads this comment knows how to and can give me easy to understand but detailed instructions on how to do so then I would most definitely appreciate it. Thanks.

About how long does it take for submitted work to be accepted? I just want to know if my stuff just hasn't been read yet or if it is bad and I should withdraw it. I submitted about four or five days ago.

Sorry, we're understaffed and overworked. If your work expires please resubmit it. :D

Hello everyone!

I am currently offering a speed critiquing service for those who want to get professional standard feedback on prose writing/or poems at a cheap price. I've just been paid for my latest 45,000 editing/proofreading job and I'm looking for new works!

You could have your short story, the first chapter of your novel or one-act script read by the end of the day with in depth feedback on how to improve!

If you're interested in finding out more, follow the link to my job service forum post.

I look forward to hearing from you! =D (Big Grin)
