Cover-Web-SilverwoodBetsy Streeter, a Bay Area author, is celebrating the release of her riveting science fiction, young adult novel Silverwood. The eBook edition was released March 15, as an iBooks “Best New Fantasy” pick, and the paperback edition will be available everywhere books are sold April 1.

The Silverwoods are a clan with a messy history and an uncertain future, and are responsible for protecting humanity from the shape-shifting Tromindox. Silverwood follows the life of fourteen-year-old Helen Silverwood and her mother and brother as they live life on the run. Helen knows that she will never have a normal life, from her mother’s unusual work habits, her father’s absence, her brother’s strange abilities with a pencil and paper, and her own recurring dreams and hacker tendencies.

Silverwood has gold-star amazing characters...and the Tromindox are one of the most original species that I have read in a while,” raves the Scarlet Nerded book blog.

Silverwood made a splash on NetGalley, and it has been receiving early praise from many reviewers. Kirkus Reviews praised the novel as, “A time traveling, portal-jumping sci-fi... The multiple points of view keep the pace moving.”  In addition to its great reviews, the thrilling new sci-fi has caught the eye of iBooks as a “Best New Fantasy” and “Popular YA” pick.

Silverwood is currently available at all ebook retailers. To read Silverwood on iBooks, follow the link:
