Michael Evans (mevansinked) | 1 comments Hello!
I hope you are doing great! My name is Michael Evans, and I'm the author of the recently published novel entitled Control Freakz. I am 15 years old, and a sophomore at Wando High School in Mt. Pleasant, SC. Control Freakz (Published 10/3/17 by Palmetto Publishing Group) is the first novel in a YA Dystopian trilogy that follows Natalie on her journey to regaining the life and happiness that was taken away from her by the government. The story is also a bit of a psychological thriller, and the entire narrative is driven by the emotions and mental torment that Natalie experiences. I like to think of it as the stepchild of Divergent and the Darkest Minds, with a flare of the Girl on the Train.

The book opens up with the government kidnapping the families of both Natalie, and her two best friends, to places unknown and for reasons unbeknownst to them. The rest of the novel follows their journey in attempting to regain the life and happiness that was torn from them, all while trying to prevent the government hitmen from killing them in the present. All seems hopeless for Natalie, and it seems like she may very well be destined to live a life of poverty and mental blackness, until a turn of events leads them into the hands of the President's ex-wife. And in the process of trying to save their lives and find their families, they end up uncovering secrets and memories better left buried, and they change the entire country forever.

My inspiration for writing this novel stems from my fascination with neuroscience, specifically how technologies in the future may be able to manipulate chemicals in the brain, resulting in mind control. The purpose of my novel is to prompt the discussion of both the positive and negative effects that the progression of technology will have on the future of humanity in hopes of preventing humanity from ever experiencing the darker aspects of the future portrayed in my novel. I want to inspire people to work towards a better future for our world, and my hope is that this novel will bring into light and draw awareness to likely futures most people don't think about, in hopes of communicating the dire message that policies must be put in place to prevent such atrocities from taking place in our society.

If reading this novel above does so entice you then I’d be happy to send you an ebook (any desired format) hear your feedback! There is also no desired time frame I have if you so graciously decided to review my book, I am just super thankful for your interest and would love it anytime that works for you. Thank you so much for having enough interest in my book to at least finish reading this, and I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

Congratulations on getting your book published and taking this plunge into the world of writers at such a young age. I have a saying-that the only failure is the failure to try. Your book sounds most interesting and I will revisit this site again in the new year. All the best with this venture and may you have a joyful Xmas.
