2012 Winner of the Eric Hoffer Award for Young Adult! The Hoffer Award was founded at the start of the 21st century (with permission from the Eric Hoffer Estate) to honor freethinking writers and independent books of exceptional merit. The commercial environment for today’s writers has all but crushed the circulation of ideas. It seems strange that in the Information Age, many books are blocked from wider circulation, and powerful writing is barred from publication or buried alive on the Internet. Furthermore, many of the top literary prizes will not even consider independent books or previously unpublished prose, choosing instead to become the marketing arms of large presses…
Great review from Readers Favorite.
“There is a lot of sexual tension between Eden and Bramford throughout the book. The book grabbed me and didn’t let go.”
Five Stars, highly recommended for young adult/adult readers. “An incredibly powerful novel. Fast-paced and interesting. Eden Newman is feisty. She’s impulsive, brave and fiery. The reader will never tire of following her “adventures”…even when the reader will feel like shaking Eden and telling her what she should be doing.” The scenes with Bramford and Eden are filled with tension, the reader will love the suspenseful undercurrent.”
The San Francisco Book Review gives Revealing Eden 5 stars. “Victoria Foyt creates an original and thought-provoking concept of the future Earth and those who inhabit it. Once I started reading, I wasn’t able to stop, drawn into the story by the mysteries surrounding the characters. Eden’s character—not without flaws—embodies a girl’s wish to be seen and loved for who she really is.”
“There were so many great and wonderful things about this book, it’d hard to find a place to start! The entire story was brilliantly thought out. Unpredictable and full of action. A great book to the start of a new unique series.”
The Midwest Book Review “very much recommends” Save The Pearls Part One REVEALING EDEN by Victoria Foyt in the December 2011 issue of the Small Press Bookwatch!
