Marilyn Peake (marilynpeake) Hello,

I'm seeking reviews for SILO SAGA: HOARDER IN THE DOWN DEEP, a novelette I recently published through Amazon's Kindle Worlds fan fiction program. This book is set in the universe of Hugh Howey's WOOL series. When I emailed Hugh Howey about writing a fan fiction story that would introduce a hoarder into the silo world of his WOOL universe, he quickly wrote back: "Love the idea!" That made my entire day. :)

Here's a link to the book on Amazon:

Here's the Book Summary:

It’s against the law to have children without winning the lottery. Implanted with a birth control device as required by law, Evangeline Hubbard, a dirt farmer in the down deep, discovers that implants sometimes fail. But in a world strictly controlled by the authorities, one pays a terrible price for tampering with the established order. Consumed by fear and madness after things go horribly wrong, Evangeline hoards in order to hang onto things. She adds them to the nest she’s building in the down deep.

HOARDER IN THE DOWN DEEP is a novelette based on the best-selling WOOL series by Hugh Howey, and was written with his permission. It’s set in the time when Sheriff Holston and his wife Allison had won the lottery, giving them one year to conceive a child. Investigating the case of Evangeline Hubbard, Sheriff Holston and Mayor Jahns are unprepared for what they find. HOARDER IN THE DOWN DEEP explores how psychological issues and emotional pain can lead to hoarding. It also explores the mental strain placed on women who have lost control over their own reproductive processes.

And here's my Author Bio:

Marilyn Peake is the author of both novels and short stories. Her publications have received excellent reviews. Marilyn’s one of the contributing authors in BOOK: THE SEQUEL, published by The Perseus Books Group, with one of her entries included in serialization at THE DAILY BEAST. In addition, Marilyn has served as Editor of a number of anthologies. Her short stories have been published in seven anthologies and on the literary blog, GLASS CASES.

Amie's Book Reviews (amiesbookreviews) | 37 comments I love the Silo series and the idea of a hoarder in the down deep is awesome. If you get a chance to also add it to amazon.CA that would be great. Because I live in Canada I can't download from amazon.com but I would love to read your story.

Marilyn Peake (marilynpeake) Hi, Amie,

I wish I could send you my book. Thanks so much for your interest! Unfortunately, I have no control over this particular book, as Amazon decides where their Kindle Worlds books will be published. I wish there was some way I could send this to you. Thanks again for your interest. :)

Amie's Book Reviews (amiesbookreviews) | 37 comments Ok that stinks because I am very intrigued. Amazon is strange. They will allow me to review books on both .com and .ca but I can only purchase through .ca

If you ever get a pdf or mobi file of your story and want a review, you can send it to me at justinandjakesmom@yahoo.ca

Thanks anyway

Amie
