10-16-17 Meet Sally Cronin whose father was in the Royal Navy and who has lived all over the world until settling in the U.K. when she was fourteen. Sally has been married for thirty-eight years and owns Smorgasbord, a magazine for lovers of health, food, books, music, humour, and life in general. She is an author with nine titles starting with one on health and weight loss, and her most recent novel was a romance. She is also an advocate of other authors. Visit her blog to find great reviews and information about books in all genres, plus a lot of other fun stuff, including recipes and the wonderful poetry presented on the same page as my book. By reprinting the 100th review of Rarity from the Hollow, five stars, Sally joins over five hundred book bloggers from twenty-eight countries in sensitizing readers to the huge social problem of child maltreatment through a tragic, comedic, and satiric science fiction adventure.

“I must say that this book is unlike any other story I’ve ever read. It’s unique in so many ways! It’s the first time I’ve read an adult novel that was written from a child’s perspective. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever even heard of another! We also get to see into the thoughts of other characters like Dwayne (her father), Jenny (her mother), DotCom (her android boyfriend) and even their dog, Brownie! It’s super neat.

There are a lot of touchy subjects that are brought up in this novel such as violence, substance abuse, sexual abuse, and self-harm but the use of satire and the interesting narrative help keep things less negative and more on the lighter side.

I really enjoyed reading Rarity from the Hollow. It’s so different and so well-written. I also love that it creates awareness in readers about mental health and different types of abuse and that it’s told in a way that isn’t too heavy. There wasn’t a single dull moment and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for something out of the ordinary.”

For a limited period, the eBook version of Rarity from the Hollow, an adult literary science fiction adventure, not for the prudish, is on sale for $2.99 and the Paperback is on sale for $16.94. (106 Book Reviews on Amazon). Author proceeds contribute to the prevention of child maltreatment: Project Updates:

Rarity from the Hollow, Guest Post: “The Role Literature Plays in Raising Awareness of Child Maltreatment” on That Bookshelf Bitch

Stop by her beautiful book blog to read the article and to say hello to Shealea from the Philippians. She is an advocate for books and for the protection of children --not bad for a twenty year old. After checking out the article, there is a listing of services provided by Children’s Home Society of West Virginia that will give you food for thought – practical ways that child abuse can be prevented.

Rarity from the Hollow is a double Gold Medal Adult SciFi novel that was named one of the best books of 2015. Its political allegory is much more obvious now that Donald Trump has become a household name. The new edition was released on Amazon on December 5, 2016.

1-18-17 Excellent Book Review of Rarity from the Hollow (excerpt):
Five Stars “…very appealing Appalachian tale. Serous in its depiction of life…and humorous in the antics of some of the and droll with a hint of the farcical…contrast novel alternating between humor, fantasy adventure, and decadence. The characters form a rich tapestry of colorful individuals that portray the nature of life in the hollow; some are mean and some are bizarre, mostly not typical of society as we imagine it. This is an uncanny fantasy that contrasts with the reality of the hollow…Thank Lacy Dawn; she saved the universe from a unique, near disaster.”  -- Robert Krueger, Author

Review By E.D. Bird

I have to admit that it took me a little while to get into the book, but that’s probably because it’s not my preferred genre. Having said that however, once I did get into it, I couldn’t put it down. The pages just kept turning themselves…
Lewis Carroll would have been very proud of this fantasy tale, and I think it would make a Magic Movie. The author has cleverly constructed an amazing story which contains all the mystery and suspense any reader wants to find in a novel. From strange creatures at war to undying love – you’ll get it all in this fabulous family fable.
I highly recommend this book to people of all ages!

Thursday, January 5, 2017 Spotlight: Rarity from the Hollow
“Note: I read this book in December of 2015. You can see my review here. When I originally wrote my review, I said the book was bizarre and really strange. It was certainly unique, but I'm afraid that bizarre might have been a strong word that could have possible scared some readers off. In fact, I meant it as a compliment. Rarity from the Hollow was a very good read and it stuck with me long after I read it.” – Kayla
The new edition was released on November 3, 2016: The eBook version was released on December 5, 2016: Kayla is reviewing it now and will publish an updated review shortly. It’s much better.

“It is a Masterpiece.” Book Review of Rarity from the Hollow by Roshini Shetty.
The following review was of the first edition:

“Pros: ‘Rarity from the Hollow’ by Robert Eggleton is a masterpiece! The author has to be given credit for his admirable imaginative skills. This unusual ‘science fiction’ novel doesn’t conveniently fit into a suitable sub-genre, with elements of fantasy, adventure, unique love story and social issues.
The characterization of ‘DotCom’ is superb and the growing special bond between Lacy Dawn (Protagonist) and DotCom is something which surely takes the story to a different level. The initial story of ‘Faith’ till her death is very sad but as the story proceeds ‘Faith’ and ‘Brownie’ keeps us entertained with their humour quotient till the very end. The exciting experiences of the characters in ‘Shptiludrp’ is something to look out for. Optimism of Lacy Dawn is truly appreciated.

Cons: The social issues of child abuse, domestic violence and poverty have been ended absurdly with concentration on adventure in the latter part of the story.”
The second edition was released on November 3, 2016: The eBook version was released on December 5, 2016: Based on Roshini’s review, the story has a new closing that ties the early tragedy together with the subsequent comedy and satire much better.
Roshini is an Amazon book reviewer who lives in India. Her day job is as an MDS in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, Certified Forensic Odontologist, Certified Laser Dentist, and Researcher with patented innovations. In her evenings, she writes novels and flash fiction.  
A special thanks to Adam Beyonce Lowe of Dog Horn Publishing for making this project possible. He is working hard to ensure that author proceeds go to the prevention of child maltreatment in West Virginia, an impoverished state in the U.S. and a long way from Adam’s home in the U.K. Child maltreatment is a huge social problem that affects all humans in every way measurable.
