THE ANNIHILATION OF FOREVERLAND
When kids awake on an island, they’re told there was an accident. Before they can go home, they will visit Foreverland, an alternate reality that will heal their minds.
FOREVERLAND IS DEAD
Six teenage girls wake with no memories. One of them is in a brick mansion, her blonde hair as shiny as her shoes. The others are in a cabin, their names tagged to the inside of their pants. Their heads, shaved. Slashes mark the cabin wall like someone has been counting.
Hundreds of them.
ASHES OF FOREVERLAND
Tyler Ballard was in prison when his son created a dreamworld called Foreverland, a place so boundless and spellbinding that no one ever wanted to leave. Or did. Now his son is dead, his wife is comatose and Tyler is still imprisoned.
But he planned it that way.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I find most stories so predictable, but Tony’s Foreverland is anything but. Really good characters, who were brought to life quite well. The premise is so unusual. Any further reviews I could give would only give away too much. Just read it. You won’t regret it!
This was so amazing that I was yelling at everyone to leave me alone to finish. From book one I was hooked! It was a wild and awesome roller coaster that I hate that finished. This is science fiction in its purest form and I will definitely read this over and over and over again.
I am sure I will read it again. Each book is enjoyable on its own, but they all directly tie together… This is one of the best reads for me this year. It held my attention completely.
Fantastic series, great insight into potential future possibilities. Well written with very good character development. I can’t wait to read what’s next.
The writing and editing was superb and the storyline was complex and snagged me right away. The characters are three dimensional, and I found myself really caring for them and rooting for them. I particularly enjoyed the fact that, while the three books are connected, they didn’t follow the same characters the entire time. I didn’t expect to like this series as much as I did, but it made me a fan of the author, Tony Bertauski.

My writing career began with magazine columns, landscape design textbooks, and a gardening column at the Post and Courier (Charleston, SC). However, I’ve always fancied fiction.
My grandpa never graduated high school. He retired from a steel mill in the mid-70s. He was uneducated, but he was a voracious reader. I remember going through his bookshelves of paperback sci-fi novels, smelling musty old paper, pulling Piers Anthony and Isaac Asimov off shelf and promising to bring them back. I was fascinated by robots that could think and act like people. What happened when they died?
I’m a cynical reader. I demand the writer sweep me into his/her story and carry me to the end. I’d rather sail a boat than climb a mountain. That’s the sort of stuff I want to write, not the assigned reading we got in school. I want to create stories that kept you up late.
Having a story unfold inside your head is an experience different than reading. You connect with characters in a deeper, more meaningful way. You feel them, empathize with them, cheer for them and even mourn. The challenge is to get the reader to experience the same thing, even if it’s only a fraction of what the writer feels. Not so easy.
In 2008, I won the South Carolina Fiction Open with Four Letter Words, a short story inspired by my grandfather and Alzheimer’s Disease. My first step as a novelist began when I developed a story to encourage my young son to read. This story became The Socket Greeny Saga. Socket tapped into my lifetime fascination with consciousness and identity, but this character does it from a young adult’s struggle with his place in the world.
After Socket, I thought I was done with fiction. But then the ideas kept coming, and I kept writing. Most of my work investigates the human condition and the meaning of life, but not in ordinary fashion. About half of my work is Young Adult (Socket Greeny, Claus, Foreverland) because it speaks to that age of indecision and the struggle with identity. But I like to venture into adult fiction (Halfskin, Drayton) so I can cuss. Either way, I like to be entertaining.
And I’m a big fan of plot twists.
Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Tony Bertauski and ENT appreciate it.
