Author/Book Spotlight & Giveaway: FEEDBACK. Ends Nov 24th

Feedback Sequel to VARIANT by Robison Wells

About the Book: Benson Fisher escaped from Maxfield Academy’s deadly rules and brutal gangs. The worst was over. Or so he thought.

But now he’s trapped on the other side of the wall, in a different kind of prison. A town filled with familiar faces. People from Maxfield who Benson had seen die. Friends he was afraid he had killed.

They are all pawns in the school’s twisted experiment, held captive and controlled by an unseen force. And while Benson struggles to figure out who, if anyone, can be trusted, he discovers that Maxfield Academy’s plans are darker than anything he imagined—and they may be impossible to stop.

About the Author:

I’m the author of the YA science-fiction thriller, Variant (HarperTeen 2011), and of Feedback (HarperTeen, Oct 2012). Variant was named as one of Publishers Weekly’s Best Books of 2011, and one of the YALSA Picks for Reluctant Readers.

I began writing professionally (and poorly) as the theater critic (live theater, not film) for Red Magazine, an arts weekly at the University of Utah, in 1999. I started writing my first novel shortly thereafter, and it was terrible.

My first published novel, On Second Thought, was released in 2004 through a regional press. That book was a romantic comedy based on a small town in New Mexico where I lived for about a year. I followed that book with two more, Wake Me When It’s Over and The Counterfeit, both political thrillers and both attempts to use my poli-sci degree for something, since it definitely wasn’t getting me a job in the field.

Because it wasn’t getting me a job, I returned to graduate school in 2007 and got an MBA in marketing at Brigham Young University. With a background in sociology, I developed a great love for the squishier sides of business–particularly consumer psychology and behavior. I split my time between homework and writing, and it was during this time that I decided I wanted to write YA for the national market…..

  1. I have had Variant on my wishlist for what seems like forever. I am really glad to see the story is continuing as it has me intrigued and I love a series or at least knowing there is still more after I have finished. I am on pins and needles to know what is really going on and just think if I turn out to be lucky and win this installment, the budget gods will have to let me get book one off the wish list. However, just in case I have added Feedback😉 Thank you for sharing about the continuation of what sounds like a very intriguing story today.

  3. I always find it interesting to learn about the different degrees or areas of study that various authors, such as yourself, are spending their time. Even thought I am far from the Young Adult stage, I think that a book concerning the behavior and psychology side of consumers would be really interesting to study and read.

  5. This book sounds interesting. Books that make you think twice and twist your thoughts are usually ones that I enjoy because they are so different from the usual fiction books. Thank you for the opportunity!
