FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Lisa Acerbo to Release Remote, a New Adult Science Fiction Romance
Trumbull, CT, November 21, 2014
Lisa Acerbo, a Trumbull High School English teacher and adjunct faculty at the University of Phoenix, is releasing her second book titled Remote for new adult audiences. The book is available for purchase starting on November 21, 2014 from Etopia Press. It can also be downloaded at Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com for Kindle and Nook.
Mrs. Acerbo explains her reason for writing the novel: “After reading “The Pedestrian” by Ray Bradbury with my Science Fiction class, I began to think about the consequences of technology in our lives. I love science fiction and hoped Remote, a 70,000 word, futuristic novel, will open a discussion on the topic. Written with a strong female protagonist, I wanted to appeal to fans of the Legend, Hunger Games, and Divergent series.”
Remote is geared for young adult and college-aged audiences. Yara lives as an undergrounder and specializes in nighttime raids against the New State, where people are often more machine than human. Then she meets Joshua, a New State citizen, who doesn’t quite fit her preconceived expectations.
As they become closer, Yara realizes how insidious the hold of New State is on the citizens and how few freedoms they have, all replaced by technological illusions. With the help of her father, an underground leader, Yara and Josh join in the rebellion and the plan to take down New State, but nothing goes as expected. The challenges Yara faces throughout the book test her loyalties and ultimately challenge her understanding of humanity.
Remote is published by Etopia Press and available for purchase starting on November 21, 2014. It can also be downloaded at Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com for Kindle and Nook.
