As the author of a series that reinvents our most beloved fairy tale characters, it’s hard not to get excited for the return of ABC’s hit series “Once Upon a Time” this Sunday.
But as a reader who is currently devouring Jason Mott’s bestselling novel THE RETURNED, it’s even harder to not shout from the rooftops (or, you know, this desk chair and my blog) that the pilot for “Resurrection” will hit the air an hour later.
Based on Mott’s novel, “Resurrection” is a product of Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company. It centers around a worldwide event in which people’s loved ones begin returning from the dead and attempting to resume their old lives–regardless of how things (and people) have changed. THE RETURNED is a remarkable book, so I expect big things from the TV series!
In honor of this momentous event, I’m beyond honored to announce that Jason will be visiting Skipping Midnight on Wednesday, March 12. You won’t want to miss what he has to say about the show, his vision, or his upcoming projects.
You also won’t want to miss his extremely generous giveaway: FIVE AUTOGRAPHED copies of THE RETURNED !

I’ve seen previews for the show and it looked interesting… but I didn’t know it was based on a book… I will definitely have to check it out…
I’m so glad I could help spread the word. I just finished all three of Jason’s prequels (The First, The Sparrow, and The Choice), and they were great!
Really liked the show. Curious in places, heartbreaking in others. I don’t watch many shows these days, but Resurrection definitely has my interest.
My family and I watched the show on Sunday and on Monday, went right out and got his book! As a matter of fact, I read all three of Jason’s prequels: The First, The Sparrow, and The Choice in early January and really enjoyed the reads.
I totally agree. The prequels did a great job of whetting my appetite for more stories about “the returned!” I’ve just started the book and can’t wait to see how everything turns out.
I had no idea Ressurection was based on a book. I want to read all of the books now. The show is so beautifully heartbreaking. I put myself in their shoes, and I felt like my heart was going to burst. I’m sure that sounds dramatic, but to someone who lost her dad very quickly to cancer, I have often wished for just one more day, even one more hour. On the other hand, I can’t imagine someone returning you didn’t want to see, but I know there are probably several people who have that exact sentiment.
Thanks Morgan. I highly recommend taking a look at the prequels, too!
