Why should you enter? Feedback is one of the most original storylines I've ever dreamt up and had the pleasure to write. My love of this book comes from a fondness I have for early sci-fi flciks such as Logan's Run and Planet of the Apes. From the moment the idea popped into my head, I knew Feedback was going to be a unique storyline.
Is unique hard to sell? Sometimes. Because when an author writes the blurb for the book, they really don't want to give too much away. But to generate interest, they need to tell as much as possible so a reader will be intrigued enough to find out about the book. What does an author do? Give it all away or hope the story and writing is great enough to grab your attention from the first page.
Ethan James, Florida Bowman, and Jake Inala are three teenagers who receive much-needed organ transplants. Two weeks later they are inadvertently recruited by the CIA when a spy dies halfway through his mission. Three bacteria bombs are set to detonate, spreading illness and death across the planet, and now it’s up to Ethan, Florida, and Jake to deactivate them.
Except that they have no idea where the bombs are located.
Kidnapped for information they can't possibly know, and fuelled by the spirit of a dead CIA agent, Ethan, Florida, and Jake must look deep inside themselves if they are to finish the mission and save millions of lives. But they're being held captive in a strange place by a man who believes in Feedback, the theory that information is retained in the memory of organs - in this case those of a certain dead CIA agent donor. And their captor will stop at nothing to get the information retained in their newly transplanted organs.
I guess if I had to pitch this book again I'd still have a hard time defining what it compares to. That's one of the troubles with unique. People want to know what ít's like.
However, don't take my word for it that Feedback is a unique story line. Here's a few snippets from reviewers.
Kaidans Seduction (December 2012)
"OH...MY...GOD...THIS BOOK IS EPIC. I have to say that I have never read a book like this before. I fell in love with this book right from the start. The premise of the book and the flow of the book hooks you right from the start. You never know what is going to happen so as you turn each page you are captured by what is happening..." Read more
Blooding Book Reviews (November 2012)
"...It’s actually a pretty complex story. It’s about these kids who all needed organs. Each kid had their own POV sections so that the reader could get their story. Richardson has a really great feel for when whiney becomes a problem. As I was reading the first character’s story, I was starting to get tired of the kid’s whiney-ness, and then the character said what I was thinking. His story really tugged at my heartstrings. I felt really bad for him, and when he got his Call, I was so super psyched..." Read more
Not into ebooks? That's okay Feedback will be released to print some time in 2013, though I don't as yet have a date. If you're in a hurry to grab the print copy, feel free to email the publisher of the novel, Etopia Press, at email@example.com.
Enjoy your week!
