In the sleepy English village of Midwich, a mysterious silver object appears and all the inhabitants fall unconscious. A day later the object is gone and everyone awakens unharmed – except that all the women in the village are discovered to be pregnant.
The Fallen Children
Book Depository: https://www.bookdepository.com/The-Fallen-Children-David-Owen/9780349002699/?a_aid=booksandquills
Young people on the Midwich Estate don’t have much hope for their futures. Keisha has lived there her whole life, and has been working hard to escape it; others have just accepted their lot.
But change is coming…
One night everyone inside Midwich Tower falls mysteriously unconscious in one inexplicable ‘Nightout’. No one can explain what happened during those lost hours, but soon afterwards Keisha and three other girls find they’re pregnant – and the babies are growing at an alarming rate.

Can you review my book?
I’m always happy to hear about upcoming books, but I’m afraid I don’t review self-published books and prefer to be contacted by a publisher rather than the author. I can only accept a small number of books for review, since I have a lot of books lined up already. I enjoy reading classics, dystopian/apocalyptic novels, sci-fi, translated fiction and a variety of graphic novels, YA and contemporary literary fiction. You can contact me at email@example.com
Where is your accent from?
I was born and raised in the Netherlands, studied English Lit at Leiden University (also in the Netherlands), studied in the US for 3 months and have lots of American friends. I’m definitely not Irish or Canadian, I promise!
Where do you live?
I live in London and have been here for 4 years now.
How did you get into publishing?
I did publishing work experience 3 times, did a lot of networking and learned everything I know about social media from creating and running this channel for 8 years. (P.s. You don’t necessarily have to study Publishing or English to get a job in publishing!).
What do you use to film?
I have a Canon 60D with a Tokina 11-16 lens. I edit my videos in Final Cut X.
