Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
The future. It’s all about friendship, love … and dangerous video games.
Launched at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival by the Australian of the Year, 2010. This is the kindle ebook edition of the previously trade-published paperback EleMental.
Winner of the Young Adult Fiction for manuscript development at Varuna Writers’ House (Australia’s only national writers’ center).
Willis, a loner not by choice, is gradually drawn into friendship with Zeb – cool and reckless – and into love with Arizona – bold and untouchable.
Set in 2050, the three teenagers encounter a deadly new virtual reality game called EleMental. Deliberately designed to be highly addictive, to control rebellious asteroid miners, EleMental has a byproduct no one was ready for: gameblur. One moment, you’re at your desk, the next, you’re battling something half-dinosaur, half-tank.
Steven O’Connor writes young adult fiction with a futuristic bent. His writing is influenced by Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), Blade Runner, Dr Who, and just about every sci-fi film and TV show you could possibly think of.
His initial manuscript for EleMental: A First-person Shooter won him a coveted Young Adult Fiction Writers’ Mentorship at the national Varuna Writers’ Center in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia.
The EleMental and MonuMental ebooks are being offered exclusively through Amazon.
When Steven O’Connor is not writing, he’s a professional social worker and he’s passionate about his work with young people.
Originally from Luton, England, Steven O’Connor now lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife, two teenage children and Sparks, his ever-attentive, ever-hungry Cavalier King Charles spaniel (AKA a toy dog, AKA canny writing assistant).
