About the Author

AUTHOR: Jeff Altabef lives in New York with his wife, two daughters, and Charlie the dog. He spends time volunteering at the writing center in the local community college. After years of being accused of "telling stories," he thought he would make it official. He writes in both the thriller and young adult genres. Fourteenth Colony, a political thriller from Tate Publishing, was his debut novel. Evolved Publishing released his second novel, the thriller Shatter Point, in 2014, and will release his young adult fantasy series Chosen, co-written with his daughter Erynn, starting in the spring of 2015. Jeff has a column on The Examiner focused on writing, and a blog designed to encourage writing by those that like telling stories. You can find his blog, The Accidental Writers' Workshop, on The Chappaqua-MountKisco Patch.

EDITOR: Lane Diamond has over 120 published books to his editing credit, including many multiple award-winners, across many genres and styles.

Review

1) "A complex dystopian story recommended for older teens, its ultimate impact and winding, engrossing story will be welcomed and relished by not only this audience but new adult readers who appreciate the complex worlds and feisty protagonists of The Hunger Games and similar dystopian novels. In the end, it's more than just a story of teens surviving in their world; but a thought-provoking saga about belief systems and religion, courage, adaptability, greed and goals of ruling humanity, and a seemingly unstoppable juggernaut of change that rolls over everyone in its path. Red Death is ultimately about revolution, the kernel of which begins here, in a gripping story of two talented and determined siblings who reach out to connect with and embrace their world." Midwest Book Review 2) "Where dystopian novels are a dime a dozen, Altabef creates an epic tale that stands out. While the premise follows the pattern of the dystopian genre, the author twists the tropes into something fresh and imaginative. A perfect example revolves around the center of the dystopian genre: the corrupt government versus the lone protagonist. While Eden's government is co-controlled by a corrupt High Priest and President, not all who are a part of the religious sect are conniving or evil. Additionally, in the outside world, the government of the tribes are also a mix of corrupt and good individuals. In other words, the perspective of the world is not simplistic. Altabef does a fantastic job of making concepts thought-provoking and delightful to read. Red Death will appeal to a wide audience since it has something for everyone. It's action-packed, with plenty of chases and fights for those who enjoy adventures and drama. There are enough twists to surprise those who are intrigued by political intrigue, suspense, and cliffhangers. Amid kingdoms to unite, princes to save, and lives on the line, there is also a playful romance sprinkled throughout for those who desire some lightheartedness." US Review of Books
