Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Swann: A Contemporary Young Adult SciFi/Fantasy (Swann Series Book 1)
If your parents loved you enough to erase you, who would you become?You are not your body. You’re not your hair, your eyes or your nose. You’re not your diseases, your anxieties, or your psychosis. Welcome to Astor Academy where, with the right genetic coding and a stomach for the impossible, you can change not only your body but the very course of your life…Thrust into the sexy, ultra-elite social scene, sixteen year old Savannah Van Duyn starts Astor Academy armed only with her sarcasm, a survivalist’s wit, and her father’s promise that the school’s geneticist can fix her many problems at the DNA level. The foremost expert in genetic engineering, however, is teeming with so much dark secrecy it has Savannah’s skin crawling. What begins as a bold promise of genetic therapy becomes a life-threatening search for morality in an immoral cure, and an obsession to right the wrongs heaped upon her and those students who have died before her.Swann is the first in this groundbreaking debut series of young adult novels. Prepare yourself for an unabashed, unapologetic look into today’s YA world, namely: coping with a body fit for shame, crazy mothers on meds, the notion that there’s a pill for every problem, bullying and cyberbullying, the ebb and flow of first love and all things humorous, sick and twisted. In the spirit of balance, however, Swann explores the allure of friendship, the resolve of the desperate soul to find light inside the darkness, and one girl’s path to redemption in the face of insurmountable odds. And so begins the story of the ugly duckling becoming the swan…Even though this novel is intended to be enjoyed by readers of all ages, due to some mature content, Swann is recommended for ages 13 and up.INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHORQ – How do I get Vannie, The Swann series prequel, when it’s not listed on Amazon?A – Inside Swann or at the author’s website, you’ll find a link to download the FREE prequel. Vannie is an engaging read, a 47 page novella that can be enjoyed in a single sitting before or after Swann, although you’ll probably like the series even more if you start with Vannie.Q – What makes the Swann series special?A – I remember devouring the Harry Potter books thinking there was always something thrilling about each new adventure. The kinds of literary highs these stories inspire produce a feeling like no other! We’ve seen vampires, werewolves, angels, demons and tales from the dystopian future; I desperately wanted to tap into the next evolution of the young adult fiction genre! From this mindset, the Swann series was born…Q – What order should I read the books in?A – The books are meant to be read in the following order:VannieSwannMonarchCloneMasochistWeaponRaven AbominationQ – Why should readers give the series a try?A – With an obsessive, almost unrivaled devotion, I set out to fill some of the larger holes left behind by a lot of today’s newer fiction. All I can say is prepare to be surprised, to burst out laughing, to squirm with the occasional flush of goosebumps, to be startled, to curse, to cry and to ultimately fall in love with a story that will sit deep inside your bones long after the last page has been read.
