Thanks, everybody, for reading and contributing to: "Publishers Weekly, How NOT To: My Mistakes" http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,258802.0.html

Since that post has not received a reply in the last few hours, I decided to update this one to let you know that I took your advice. This morning, I added a new blurb to the Editorial Reviews section of my novel on Amazon.  I also tweeted it:

The abuse in the book is graphic, but the story arc is hopeful: a family recovering and becoming better together. -- Publishers Weekly @PublishersWkly  The paperback and Ebook are both on sale for Christmas: http://amzn.to/2s6O4yK  Proceeds help abused children: www.childhswv.org

Hi,

The list of countries represented in the international movement to sensitive readers to the huge social problem of child maltreatment thru a comical and satiric SciFi adventure continues to grow. Rarity from the Hollow had appeared on book blogs all over the world, totally free trips with no other incentives other than the love for books and for the cause of helping needful kids. Yesterday, the book made a return trip to India and received a great review by an honest book blogger, but the real news is that Lacy Dawn, the protagonist, finally had an opportunity to visit Scotland -- a first. This makes 29 countries on her all expenses free tour of the world, a long way from our home in West Virginia, U.S. -- a place from which few escape. Plus, as some of you are aware, half of author proceeds are donated to a nonprofit agency that does a great job saving kids from horrific circumstances. Millions of American children will spend this holiday in temporary shelters. A lot more world-wide are likely to spend their respective holidays in worse conditions. Having once been the director of emergency children's shelters in West Virginia, it is still heartbreaking to think about children not having a (real) family during Christmas. I remember the faces, the smiles and thank yous for the presents from staff, but. 

Here is what Emerald Books said about Rarity from the Hollow, after it had waited in line for months for a free review:

..an unusual tale of sci-fi fantasy with intriguing twists and turns that will easily captivate the adult reader's attention from the beginning..a quirky and adventurous story in a very vivid and convincing way..the characters are drawn with great credibility and integrity." http://amzn.to/2BoLWfe This review is so fresh that it is still waiting in line to be posted on the Emerald Books blog.

Happy Holidays!

Robert

Rarity reminds me of Ursula K. Le Guins The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas, mixed with Douglas Adams Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and Eggleton has convinced me that such radically different story-telling styles can not only co-exist in a single book, but can actually play off each other brilliantly if balanced correctly. The believable struggle and darkness of the Hollow breaks your heart while the outlandish solutions to Lacy Dawns problems feel not only believable (by some stroke of genius on Eggletons part), but deserved and bright. In addition to being an expertly crafted story, Rarity did something that most pop fiction doesnt usually do: it made me ask questions.

Yvonne Mason reports thousands of listeners to her broadcasts, but it is hard for me to imagine that people in this day and age of instant gratification, tweets, sound bites, and clips actually invest the time to pay attention to radio interviews about books. In any case:
