ABOUT THE BOOK (FROM THE PROMO KIT)
Can you live a life of LIES? That’s exactly what Geneva finds herself doing to protect everyone she loves. While Geneva and her friends embark on a dangerous mission to fulfill her destiny, the dark forces that seek her powers are closing in, putting everyone she cares about at risk. Geneva must lie about who she is, what she knows and her true feelings. Are all these lies worth it or will she go too far and lose everything she’s been fighting for?
GUEST POST FROM THE AUTHOR ON “THE POWER OF WORDS”
For me, that’s probably why I became a writer in the first place. I absolutely love the power of words. They really are the truest form of magic. In what other profession can you invent anything you can dream up by typing a few tiny letters? Words can transport you, they can take you on a journey worlds away, teach you to learn new skills, connect you with new friends, create things that don’t exist yet. Words can be powerful and beautiful, building new worlds, or tearing down old walls. I simply love the limitless opportunities words offer.
I also love the escape and comfort they can bring. No matter what I’m dealing with, reading or writing, gives me solace. I started writing the first book in my YA series, The Geneva Project, on my lunch break because I was bored. I would normally read to break up the long work day, but I’d just finished some of my favorite series and wasn’t ready to dive into a new one yet, so I thought, “what the heck, why don’t I invent my own?”
I sat down and wrote “My name is Geneva Sommers.” Those five little words changed my life. Talk about the power of words! I slowly and secretly wrote Truth, the first book in my YA series and then timidly published it. Since then I’m quite my day job and followed my dreams to write full time. I’ve published three books in The Geneva Project series and have four other novels in the works. I travel to schools speaking to students about the importance of literacy in their lives. I even started a One-for-One organization to help bring books to programs in need.
