Love at the Edge of Seventeen Kickstarter

Spring fever has infected the teens in these 10 stories, leading to hijinks, drama, misunderstandings...and maybe even love.

In April of 2018, the YA anthology Love at the Edge of Seventeen will be released. Currently, a Kickstarter campaign is being held for the project. This anthology is shaping up to be a great one. It features the work of ten different authors — including M.T. DeSantis! To back Love at the Edge of Seventeen, please click here. To check out M.T. DeSantis’ terrific blog, click here.

Spotlight and Free Review Copies!

During the summer of last year, I had the opportunity to interview Robert Eggleton, author of Rarity from the Hollow. (To check out that post, click here.) I’m excited to announce that Robert recently released a new edition of the aforementioned novel. Said version contains both a new blurb and a new cover. Before discussing some interesting details regarding Rarity from the Hollow, let’s take a look at its description:

32993259Lacy Dawn’s father relives the Gulf War, her mother’s teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in The Hollow isn’t great. But Lacy has one advantage — she’s been befriended by a semi-organic, semi-robot who works with her to cure her parents. He wants something in exchange, though. It’s up to her to save the Universe.

Will Lacy Dawn’s predisposition, education, and magic be enough for her to save the Universe, Earth, and, most importantly, protect her own family?

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire. It is a children’s story for adults, not for the prudish, faint of heart, or easily offended.

Intrigued? If so, your sentiments are shared by quite a few others. Here’s a sampling of what readers have said about Robert Eggleton’s Rarity from the Hollow :

  • “The most enjoyable science fiction novel I have read in years.”
    — Temple Emmet Williams, Author, former editor for Reader’s Digest
  • “Quirky, profane, disturbing… In the space between a few lines we go from hardscrabble realism to pure sci-fi/fantasy. It’s quite a trip.”
    — Evelyn Somers, The Missouri Review
  • “…sneaks up you and, before you know it, you are either laughing like crazy or crying in despair, but the one thing you won’t be is unmoved…a brilliant writer.”
    Readers’ Favorite (Gold Medal)

In many ways, Rarity from the Hollow is a political allegory. Here’s what Robert had to say in this regard:

You would have to read the novel to find out how Lacy Dawn, the protagonist, convinced Mr. Rump (Bernie Sanders) to help talk Mr. Prump (Donald Trump) into saving the universe. The political allegory includes pressing issues that America is fighting about today, including illegal immigration and the refuge crisis, extreme capitalism / consumerism…. Mr. Prump was a projection of Donald Trump based on the TV show, The Apprentice. Part of the negotiations in the story occur in the only high rise on planet Shptiludrp (Shop Until You Drop), a giant shopping mall and the center of economic governance, now more easily identifiable as Trump Tower. There is no political advocacy in the story, other than sensitizing readers to the huge social problem of child maltreatment, but the allegory is much more obvious now that Donald Trump is a household name.

Requests for review copies of the new edition of Rarity from the Hollow are now being considered. If interested, simply email Robert at robert_t [at] suddenlink [dot] net.
