Touching Base: Millions of U.S. Children

November 26, 2017

A lot has been going on with the Rarity from the Hollow project since I last posted. With Christmas around the corner, I decided to remind folks that Millions of American children will spend this holiday season living in temporary shelters. Half of author proceed from this project are donated to the prevention of child maltreatment. The novel remains on sale through Christmas. https://www.amazon.com/Rarity-Hollow-Robert-Eggleton/dp/190713395X/

It’s available at any online book store and at Books-A-Million if you happen to walk into one while shopping. But, the Amazon price is less expensive and for some reason the sale doen’t affect how much money that Dog Horn Publishing will be able to deposit directly into the account of Children’s Home Society after Christmas. I’m not very knowledgeable about marketing or sales, and just love to write. Speaking of which, a new (free) short story was published in a magazine, but it’s Part One, so you would need to wait for the next edition to read the ending: : https://farhorizonsmagazine.wordpress.com/

A very cool review was published very recently in Amazing Stories Magazine: http://amazingstoriesmag.com/2017/10/review-rarity-hollow/ A great blurb was written by one of the most famous science fiction writer to have ever existed:

“A fun, sometimes cleverly-gonzo, and even inspiring tale about an undaunted girl’s close encounter of the weird kind.” — David Brin Mr. Brin is an American scientist and author of science fiction. He has received the Hugo, Locus, Campbell and Nebula Awards. His novel, The Postman, was adapted as a feature film and starred Kevin Costner in 1997. Obviously, I feel honored that he read and blurbed my novel.

“…Full of cranky characters and crazy situations, Rarity From the Hollow sneaks up you and, before you know it, you are either laughing like crazy or crying in despair, but the one thing you won’t be is unmoved… Robert Eggleton is a brilliant writer whose work is better read on several levels. I appreciated this story on all of them.”

New Edition

January 8, 2017

The new edition of Rarity from the Hollow was released on November 3, 2016: http://www.lulu.com/shop/robert-eggleton/rarity-from-the-hollow/paperback/product-22910478.html. The eBook version was released on December 5, 2016: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B017REIA44/ref=tsm_1_fb_lk.

 

Blurb:

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.

 

“The most enjoyable science fiction novel I have read in years.”

Temple Emmet Williams, Author, former editor for Reader’s Digest

 

 

“Quirky, profane, disturbing… In the space between a few lines we go from hardscrabble realism to pure sci-fi/fantasy. It’s quite a trip.”

  • Evelyn Somers, The Missouri Review

 

. “…a hillbilly version of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy…what I would have thought impossible; taken serious subjects like poverty, ignorance, abuse…tongue-in-cheek humor without trivializing them…profound…a funny book that most sci-fi fans will thoroughly enjoy.” — Awesome Indies (Gold Medal)

 

“…sneaks up you and, before you know it, you are either laughing like crazy or crying in despair, but the one thing you won’t be is unmoved…a brilliant writer.” —Readers’ Favorite (Gold Medal)

 

“Rarity from the Hollow is an original and interesting story of a backwoods girl who saves the Universe in her fashion. Not for the prudish.” —Piers Anthony, New York Times bestselling author

 

“…Good satire is hard to find and science fiction satire is even harder to find.” — The Baryon Review
