West Virginia Science Fiction to Benefit Child Abuse Prevention

Writer Robert Eggleton, a therapist in a children's mental health program in Charleston, W. Va, has written a science fiction novel set in West Virginia entitled "Rarity from the Hollow: A Lacy Dawn Adventure."

"Rarity" was published as an ebook: According to Eggleton, there is also a satirical essay about his promotion of the novel published in July by Wingspan Quarterly: "Rarity" has received several blurbs by famous authors, including one by Piers Anthony, others of which are on the publisher's site. A professional review is also available at Baryon Online:

Depending on a schedule, Eggleton is donating ten to fifty percent of the author proceeds to the Children's Home Society of West Virginia (CHS, DennisSutton, Executive Director), an organization dedicated to preventing child abuse in West Virginia. (The donation schedule is based on $1000 increments: 10% donation up to $1000, 20% after $1000 to $2000, 30% from $2000 to $3000...and 50% of anything $5000 or more. In other words, if the book makes $10, Children's Home Society (CHS) gets $1. If it makes $5000, CHS gets $2,500,)
