The Seventh Hour by Tracey Ward 
Publication date: January 6th 2016
Genres: Dystopia, Young Adult


When the Earth’s rotation slowed to a crawl mankind was plunged into a harsh world of burning hot days and endless, arctic nights. Some fled to the mountains for shelter. Others took to the seas, sailing forever in the perfect gold between the night and the day; a place known as the Seventh Hour.

Liv was raised aboard a ship chasing the Seventh. She’s never seen the night, never known true cold, and when a storm destroys her home she’s on land for the first time in her life. She’s alone, surrounded by strangers and perils she couldn’t have imagined in her worst nightmares. Her only chance at survival is Grayson.

He saved her. He’ll protect her. He hates her.

Old grudges run deeper than the sea, and Liv and Gray will have to overcome them together to make it to morning.

To survive the longest night.

Why Writing Sucks at
Being Awesome
by Tracey Ward
          I’ll start this by saying I love my job. SO much. Even on
the bad days.
I’ve worked in insurance, at a jewelry store, a video store
before they went extinct. Target. The best thing I can say about those jobs is
that I got paid. They covered my bills and put gas in my car. But until I
started writing I didn’t know what it was to love a job. Like really love it with my whole heart.
          I also didn’t know what it could feel like to really hate it
either. Not even on Black Friday at 4 a.m. in Target red surrounded by discount
waffle makers did I know true hate.
          Now I do.
          Being an author sucks because it’s lonely. I make my own
covers, I write the stories alone, I market everything myself. If it bombs,
it’s on me. Only me. That’s when I hate it. That’s when I feel like I failed my
fans, and I cannot stand that feeling. On the flip side, if it succeeds that’s
my success. Mine all mine. But no one can appreciate it like I can. No one went
through the process with me. No one sweated the book like I did, no one else poured
their soul into it, and in the end I’m still alone.
          So what’s the sunny side of being an author? There has to be
one, right? Otherwise this post accomplishes nothing but bringing everybody
down and making us all want waffles.
          Good news! There is a sunny side; you. Readers. You guys
make it worth it. You guys make the loneliness fade away when you love a
character I’ve created or simply spent a few hours wandering the world I’ve
built. Whether you enjoy the story or not, you visit it. You breathe life into
it by turning the pages, reading the words.

          You make it worth writing; love, hate, loneliness and all.


“I don’t write romances, I write relationships. One is pretty and perfect and all consuming. The other is real.”

I was born in Eugene, Oregon and studied English Literature at the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!) I love writing all kinds of genres from YA Dystopian to New Adult Romance, the common themes between them all being strong character development and a good dose of humor.

My husband, son, and snuggly pitbull are my world.
