Rite of Rejection by Sarah Negovetich
Releasing December 4th, 2014
Straight-laced, sixteen-year-old
Rebecca can’t wait for her Acceptance.
A fancy ball, eligible bachelors, and her debut as an official member of society.
Instead, the Machine rejects Rebecca. Labeled as a future criminal, she’s
shipped off to a life sentence in a lawless penal colony.
A life behind barbed wire fences with the world’s most dangerous people terrifies Rebecca. She reluctantly joins a band of misfit teens in a risky escape
plan, complete with an accidental fiancé she’s almost certain she can learn to love. But freedom comes with a price. To escape a doomed future and prove her innocence Rebecca must embrace
the criminal within.

Before
You Stands the Future.
The dark-red banner strung
across the storefront awning matches the dozens of others lining the streets of
the shopping district. Each one with the same clock counting down to Acceptance. Tomorrow morning can’t get here soon enough.
I push the glowing blue button and the door slides open with a staccato puff of air. Overhead, an electric bell dings
as I shuffle into the upscale boutique packed with other Candidates. Cheryl is right behind me, bouncing on her toes with each
step. My mother would die of embarrassment if I showed the same lack of decorum
as my best friend, but I’m bouncing on the inside. Our mothers walk in behind
us and the door slides shut with another whoosh of air.
We visited half the shops in Cardinal City
this morning in our search for the perfect dresses and dyed-to-match shoes. I got a thrill buying my first pair of silk gloves, Cheryl
and I gushing over the tiny pearl buttons, but this is the purchase I’m looking forward to the most. Shelves bursting with dance cards cover every square inch of wall space. Dozens of girls sigh and squeal over the small books we’ll use to record the names of our dance partners for tomorrow’s ball. I wipe damp palms against the cool material of my skirt and force myself to focus on the goal. One of these books is the perfect one for me. Hopefully, by
the end of tomorrow night, it will hold the name of my future husband.


Sarah
Negovetich knows you don't know how to pronounce her name and she's okay with
that. Her first love is Young Adult novels, because at seventeen the world is your oyster. Only oysters are slimy and more than a little salty; it's accurate if not exactly motivational. We should come up with a better cliché.

Sarah divides her time between writing YA books that her husband won’t read and
working with amazing authors as an agent at Corvisiero Literary Agency. Her life’s goal is to be only a mildly embarrassing mom when her kids hit their teens.

Book Review: Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

( I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Lacy 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 is hard. She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.








This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.
