Santa Monica, California (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Sand Dollar Press, an independent publisher of fiction for young adults and women, announced that Save the Pearls Part One REVEALING EDEN, a groundbreaking Young Adult, fantasy/adventure romance novel by Victoria Foyt, was awarded “Best YA Fantasy Novel” by the prestigious Books & Authors, and received a multitude of rave reviews from The San Francisco City Review, Fresh Fiction, The Huffington Post, Readers Favorite, Examiner and The Midwest Book Review, among many others.
Released January 10, 2012, Save the Pearls Part One REVEALING EDEN has been likened to bestselling post apocalyptic books and dystopian fare including Twilight and The Hunger Games. The Sacramento Book Review and The San Francisco Book Review gave Revealing Eden five stars, deeming it “An original and thought-provoking concept of the future Earth and those who inhabit it.” It was “Very much recommended” by The Midwest Book Review and author Marianne Williamson called it “A fascinating story... for lovers of all ages.”
In Save the Pearls Part One REVEALING EDEN, Foyt examines themes of beauty, racism and the deteriorating environment. Foyt said of her new book: “Revealing Eden turns the tables on racism: what if extreme changes in the environment put Caucasians at a disadvantage? I’m thrilled by the enthusiastic responses of reviewers and readers. Who knows, maybe this novel will change the way we look at earth, and each other.”
Sand Dollar Press Head of Marketing Chaton Anderson commented, "Revealing Eden has something for everyone—the fantasy/adventure romance plot transcends genres to fuse dystopian, urban fantasy, and post apocalyptic themes with a bit of sci-fi mixed in.” She added, “Victoria Foyt touches on so many critical themes while taking us on an entertaining rollercoaster ride that provokes readers to examine their preconceived notions of beauty and race, while reminding us that true love can exist in even the most challenging circumstances.”
Available at SavethePearls.com and major online retailers as a hardcover and an e-book, Save the Pearls Part One REVEALING EDEN is the first installment of a trilogy. Advanced Readers Copies garnered unparalleled positive reviews and other authors also offer praise. Jerrilyn Farmer, author of the award-winning Madeline Bean mysteries, called it "Wickedly clever and hard to put down," and Butterflies author Martha Goldhirsh said, “Revealing Eden is a great fantasy love story! Foyt conjures up other worlds like J.K. Rowling does... no matter how the world changes, the difference between the sexes is eternal and the heat from solar radiation is no match for the heat between a man and a woman."
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).
