Title: PRAEFATIO
Author: Georgia McBride
Release Date: May 21, 2013
Pages: 342
Publisher: Month9Books
Formats: Paperback, eBook

Seventeen-year-old Grace Ann Miller is no ordinary runaway...



After having been missing for weeks, Grace is found on the estate of international rock star Gavin Vault, half-dressed and yelling for help. Over the course of twenty-four hours Grace holds an entire police force captive with incredulous tales of angels, demons, and war; intent on saving Gavin from lockup and her family from worry over her safety.



Authorities believe that Grace is ill, suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, the victim of assault and a severely fractured mind. Undeterred, Grace reveals the secret existence of dark angels on earth, an ancient prophecy and a wretched curse steeped in Biblical myth. Grace’s claims set into motion an ages-old war, resulting in blood, death and the loss of everything that matters. But are these the delusions of an immensely sick girl, or could Grace’s story actually be true?

Praefatio is Grace’s account of weeks on the run, falling in love and losing everything but her faith. When it’s sister against brother, light versus darkness, corrupt police officers, eager doctors and accusing journalists, against one girl with nothing but her word as proof: who do you believe?

“With Praefatio, Georgia McBride proves that you can take any genre to a higher level. This is teen fantasy at its most entertaining, most heartbreaking, most compelling. Highly recommended.” –Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author.

About Georgia:
Georgia loves a good story. Whether it’s writing her own, or publishing someone else’s, story is at the heart of everything Georgia does.

Making a Book by Georgia McBride

People ask me all the time how I came up with the idea for PRAEFATIO. I hardly know what to say since I never really did. I simply closed my eyes and listened to the voices inside my head.

You see, when PRAEFATIO came to me, it did so in the form of the main characters talking to me. Gavin was by far the loudest. Grace's voice was the most persistent, and Remi - dear sweet Remi - was the most tortured. Each of these characters took turns telling bits and pieces of their story over a 4-month period of time. I honestly felt I was have a psychotic break.

But then I began to write it down.

If you've read PRAEFATIO you will notice a bit of a lack of linear order to the story. But that's exactly how I received it. Once I started writing it, I had to piece the timeline together myself from the information the characters shared with me.

By the time the characters stopped talking, I had written 157,000 words. I let an agent friend of mine read my draft and she told me I had the makings of what could be an amazing story, if I only I cut it down to about 1/2 its current word count and limit the POV to just Grace, the missing girl found alive on the estate of a teen rock star.

I absorbed everything I could about the craft of fiction writing. I read probably every YA book in the genre at the time. I hired a freelance editor and revised with her roughly three times. Then I set out to find an agent. In fact, PRAEFATIO has had 2 agents. But neither was able to convince publishers that readers still cared about paranormal romance.

Fast forward to today. Everywhere I go readers ask me when there will be a follow up. PRAEFATIO became an Amazon category bestseller in 3 countries. I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to read the book and do hope to follow up with 2 more books in the series someday. I write for you!
