FOLLOWERS by Megan Angelo – SPOTLIGHT & GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY CLOSED

FOLLOWERS (GraydonHouse) is an electrifying story of two ambitious friends, the dark choices they make and the stunning moment that changes the world as we know it forever.

Orla Cadden is a budding novelist stuck in a dead-end job, writing clickbait about movie-star hookups and influencer yoga moves. Then Orla meets Floss—a striving, wannabe A-lister—who comes up with a plan for launching them both into the high-profile lives they dream about. So what if Orla and Floss’s methods are a little shady—and sometimes people get hurt? Their legions of followers can’t be wrong.

Thirty-five years later, in a closed California village where government-appointed celebrities live every moment of the day on camera, a woman named Marlow discovers a shattering secret about her past. Despite her massive popularity—twelve million loyal followers—Marlow dreams of fleeing the corporate sponsors who would do anything to keep her on-screen. When she learns that her whole family history is based on a lie, Marlow finally summons the courage to run in search of the truth, no matter the risks.

Followers traces the paths of Orla, Floss and Marlow as they wind through time toward each other, and toward a cataclysmic event that sends America into lasting upheaval. At turns wry and tender, bleak and hopeful, this darkly funny story reminds us that even if we obsess over famous people we’ll never meet, what we really crave is genuine human connection.

  1. I use social media to keep in touch with family and friends and also to keep me up to date on current events.

  2. I’ll admit it, I love social media. I use it to keep up to date with my family and friends and for news updates. I also use it to keep up to date with authors and to try to win books. It’s just a fun place to be.

  3. Honestly I’m probably on social media too much but I love it to stay in touch with my friends and family that i don’t get to see a lot.

  4. I enjoy the benefits of “seeing” most of my friends and family on social media that I might have lost touch with if not for the platform.

  6. I use social media to put in for giveaways, keep in touch with friends and family, I am in book groups so I can learn about new authors and the books they write! I have found out there are a lot of good authors and books I would have missed out on if not for social media.

  7. I’m in and out of Facebook, mostly into reader and author pages and groups, goat groups, and fitness. I mostly enjoy seeing what acquaintances & friends are up too, but I’ve had to unfollow some as it is negative and political hateful posting. I’ve learned much about people I thought were good people, ha ha.

  8. Very very close 🤷‍♀️. I love Instagram just to browse books, fashion and photography and all my bookclubs on facebook. Whatsapp is just for family and friends matters.

  9. I’m sure I spend too much time on it, but I love the connection with others who love reading and much as I do. And seeing all those photos of my great-grandcooties doesn’t hurt, either!

  10. Social media is my link to life! Link to friends, family, books, reviews, knitting, shopping., you name it. I use FB, Ravelry, Goodreads, and Netgalley regularly. I am a mod for Nextdoor, Knitting group on Ravelry, Sorority Reading Group on FB, Friends Reading Group on FB, High School Reunion Coordination Group on FB. I just started my own FB Page to sell my hand-knits too. I purchase all of my luxury yarns online too. I follow craft groups and reading blogs. Sometimes I wish I spent as much time reading as I do reading about it!

  11. I’ve wanted to read Followers since I first heard about it months ago. My relationship with social media is complicated. While I like it and participate on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, I also feel it can be a complete time-suck. There have been days where I’ve spent an enormous amount of time on it which kept me from doing things I should’ve been doing. And with all the pressure to post, gain followers and be present, it gets to be like a job.

  12. That’s a good question for me! I’m pretty computer illiterate. I have done pretty good mastering Facebook, but still can’t get the hang of Instagram! Slow learner!

  13. I believe on Facebook all personal friends have probably blocked my notifications because I post so much about books and authors. Instagram, Twitter I only follow authors or book friends I’ve met through reading. Goodreads and Bookbub I follow authors and review their books. Amazon, what did we do before it?

  14. I love social media for keeping up with family and friends. I use the internet daily and can no longer imagine life without it.
