I set out to write a futuristic beauty and the beast story and ended up tapping into deep-seated fears and fantasies of my own.
Santa Monica, California (PRWEB) September 16, 2011
Sand Dollar Press, an independent publisher of fiction for young adults and women, announces the publication of Save the Pearls Part One REVEALING EDEN, a groundbreaking Young Adult, fantasy-adventure/romance novel penned by Victoria Foyt. The book is scheduled for publication on January 10, 2012. It will be released as both a hardcover and e-book. This is the first time ever that one of Foyt’s novels will be released as an e-book.
In Save the Pearls Part One REVEALING EDEN, Foyt examines the themes of beauty, racism and the deteriorating environment in an entertaining fantasy/sci-fi plot with a romantic love story at its core. Geared to the Young Adult market, the novel is the first in a series and marks Foyt’s second novel for this burgeoning demographic. Foyt said of her new book: “I set out to write a futuristic beauty and the beast story and ended up tapping into deep-seated fears and fantasies of my own. I believe the themes of racism and beauty, while seemingly harsh, are universal and hopefully, enlightening.”
Sand Dollar Press Inc. Head of Marketing Chaton Anderson commented, "Sand Dollar Press is honored to launch such a compelling and creative project that will have a lasting impact on the way readers view the prevalence of racism, preconceptions of beauty and its distortion by the media, and ultimately, how they live their lives. We’re also thrilled that Victoria has decided to make this young adult fantasy book available in e-book format as it will avail her work to a new demographic.”
Foyt’s first young adult novel, The Virtual Life of Lexie Diamond, garnered rave reviews and was recommended by the Center for Children’s Books. In addition, it earned a five-star, “must-read” rating from TeansReadToo.com. The success of this coming-of-age, mystery young adult novel inspired Foyt to write the Save the Pearls series. Foyt’s career also includes co-writing several critically acclaimed feature films, Going Shopping (2005), Déjà Vu (1997), Last Summer in the Hamptons (1995), and Babyfever (1994).
