Becoming Human receives Compulsion Reads Endorsement

Before I get to the news about my book, I had said not that long ago that all  information relating to the Trilogy would go through my newsletter and I would only share with you the process of how I produced/marketed/sold my book.

Well…it’s almost true.

You see, I realise now that the people who are signing up for the newsletter aren’t interested in news about Book 1. They’re waiting on news about Book 2. They already know that they like Becoming Human.  So, I’m sharing the news with you, the folks that possibly haven’t read it.

And in a separate post, I will talk more about who Compulsion Reads are and how I got the endorsement seal for my book. Maybe a fancy seal is something that appeals to you? It can’t hurt, right? I’m certainly proud to show it off and it took a little work to get it.

Below is the official press release from Compulsion Reads.

The Trilogy presents a dystopian future where world population and pollution are serious issues and explores what happens when humans opt for the easiest solution. Becoming Human, a sci fi adventure book, is the first in the Trilogy and her debut novel. Green lives in Dublin, Ireland.

  1. What a great review of your book, Eliza, and you deserve so much credit for all the work and effort you put into it – I’m sure that your second one will deserve a great review also.  You must be very proud and all your Canadian relatives are proud to knoow such a talented writer.   John started reading it and then Anna, Ed’s wife and Brendan, his son were bugging him to hurry up so he passed it on to them.  Although I don’t always keep in touch on a regular basis, I follow your blog, as we all do, and we have always felt a special connection with your Mom’s children.  Keep up the good work, my dear.   Love            Anne & John 

    1. Thank you Anne! Glad to hear the family is eager to read it. I’m afraid the book did have to change a little in order to qualify for the endorsement, but the version you have is still a good read and the story in both versions is identical! Don’t forget, I’m on the email if you want to chat!
