The New Recruit

When sixteen-year-old Judith meets Cain, she has no idea what she’s getting herself into. Cain is the most beautiful human being Judith has ever seen, but he hides a dangerous secret.

From the press release:

Sixteen-year-old Judith Abraham feels like an outsider. She has just transferred to a new school, has only one friend, and suffers from social anxiety, but when recruiter Cain Barrett offers her a job, her whole life changes. Things are great at first, but the more she learns about Cain’s world of climate crusaders, the more she questions his motives behind singling her out. Will Judith find a way out before it’s too late?

THE NEW RECRUIT is the first book of a trilogy (followed by Indoctrination) by author Elise Abram, winner of the 2015 A Woman’s Write competition for I WAS, AM, WILL BE ALICE. THE NEW RECRUIT is a young adult contemporary romance for the new millennium. In a time when jobs are scarce, politics are unstable, and the future is uncertain, millennials are ripe for recruitment by cults, groups offering a stable world view in exchange for total devotion. THE NEW RECRUIT is meant to be a cautionary tale exploring how, without love and support from those around them, our disenfranchised youth can be so easily misguided.

Blog Tour Itinerary for TAG: A CAUTIONARY TALE

tag tour banner_edited-1

In the race to be king, there can be only one winner

Tag, Red Rover, King of the Hill…children’s games are an allegory for real world competition.

Think of the race for President of the United States as a game of Tag, with the entire country as the playing field.

The candidates, usually boys, are the players.

Before long, the players realize that no man is an island and they form two teams. Eventually the leader of the first team emerges. It takes a while longer, but the second team eventually decides which of the two forerunners should be their rightful leader.

But that’s not enough. In the game of Tag, there can ultimately be only a single winner, the King of the Hill. The race for King is cutthroat. Lives may be lost, reputations tarnished, back-alley deals are struck and broken. They say that to the victor goes the spoils—in this race, the victor will take his spoils, even if it he must turn his kingdom into a vast wasteland to get them.

EMSA Publishing is pleased to announce the release of Tag: A Cautionary Tale by John Collings. A contemporary, young adult, satire that draws parallels between the world of politics and the games children play. The world of politics is a high-stakes, dangerous game; playing Tag on Arabella Hill is no different.

In the race to rule Arabella Hill, there can be only one winner. Read Tag: A Cautionary Tale by John Collings to find out who will reign supreme.

John CollingsTag: A Cautionary Tale is scheduled for a July 5, 2016 release (though it is already available in stores).

Here’s the itinerary so far (in no particular order):

Announcing the Re-release of PHASE SHIFT by Elise Abram

PHASE SHIFT by Elise Abram

PHASE SHIFT by Elise Abram

EMSA Publishing is thrilled to announce the re-release of Elise Abram’s Phase Shift.

In Phase Shift, archaeology professor Molly McBride is given an artifact that is the key to another planet, a doppelganger Earth called Gaia. Life on Gaia seems idyllic at first, but Molly soon learns the Gaians harbour a dark secret. Phase shifting technology, used to travel from their world to ours, has the potential to destroy Gaia, which will have serious repercussions for Earth. Phase Shift is Molly’s journey of discovery as she tries to find a way to save both planets from destruction.

Originally published in 2012, Phase Shift’s message remains germane today, as it questions our decision to choose economy over ecology. In her book, Abram questions the justification of supporting the status quo to the detriment of the planet. In a recent article on her website, Abram says,

“On Earth, we face global warming as a result of our love of profit and our reluctance to change to greener fuels because it will mess up the economy. On Gaia, there is a group of people who continue to experiment with terraforming and shifting between the two planets in spite of a moratorium of both. The result is, no matter what the general population does–buying fuel-efficient vehicles, conserving, reducing, reusing, recycling, composting, etc.–it doesn’t matter, because the Gaian’s are still practising terraforming and shifting.”

The main theme behind Phase Shift is that, if the government and big business don’t get on board with saving the planet, things are going to get a whole lot worse before they get better, which is a fear many of us share with the author.

Phase Shift is one in a growing number of fictional works that fall into the genre of Eco-Fiction or Cli-Fi, which was born because “the threat seems to have become too pressing to ignore, and less abstract, thanks to a nonstop succession of mega-storms and record-shattering temperatures.” In her article, Cli-Fi, the Birth of a Genre, author Rebecca Tuhus-Dubrow cites “major novelists” who have published books in this genre, including Margaret Atwood, and Ian McEwan; Abram is among good company.
