About this deal

It’s like this great, mystical process that is totally overshadowed by the importance of securing a literary agent. For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password.

Thank you to Edelweiss, Park Row, NetGalley, Harlequin - Hanover Square Press - Park Row, and Mary Kubica for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.The author has a talent for writing relatable characters that make you want to root for them, at least that’s how I’ve felt about them. Fertility treatments, IVF, you name it - Eden will stop at nothing to accomplish her goal of having a child of her own. In the book, When the Lights Go Out, Ms Kubica introduces us to Eden, a young girl happily married to her spouse who decide to have a child.

The story is one that is easy to read and follow along and I did find myself engaged rather quickly.

She has plans to move forward with plans to go to college, but finds out she has no birth certificate or valid social security number. She has no drivers license or other ID and it’s hard to imagine a person living in todays world without some kind of proof of identity, unless there was some funny business.

She has a way of writing dialogue that’s so believable without being dull, even when the conversations go nowhere and barely anything happens. The other characters issues were the normal kinds of worries and problems that your average individual in their twenties experiences and it doesn't make for a thrilling read! Since the 1960s, the act of walking has provided a way for artists and musicians to escape the formality of the concert hall or institutional venue, engaging with shifting public spaces, natural environments, and the social and political sphere. Jessie Sloane is a young woman who has spent several years caring for her cancer-stricken mother, Eden.Luke, Julie and 4 friends set off on a road trip to Wales in a blacked-out VW Campervan, using only B-roads. Essay by Elena Biserna; contributions by Max Neuhaus, Willem de Ridder, William Levy, Collective Actions Group, David Helbich, Janet Cardiff, Jacek Smolicki, Carolyn Chen, Tao G.

For anything that’s been dragging on between eighteen months and two years, it might be time to consider shelving it. When both women's lives start to unravel they both become unreliable leaving me with so many questions as the suspense and tension increased. I wish I could say it was worth the wait but sadly I found myself wishing it was over from about halfway through. These types of books are what I seek and when little snippets of the mystery are hidden so well in the narrative, when the reveal comes and falls all into place, leaving me gasping out loud in awe, then I’m pretty much elated and totally satisfied. Any author who must literally tell readers that one or more of the characters was "in a box" must certainly have missed the literature classes on showing rather than telling.

When the Lights Go Out is told in alternating timelines: Jessie in the present day and Eden in 1996.

However, if there is a lot of buzz around your book, your agent will make a power play to keep rights, for her to sell separately to different houses around the world. I don't even know how to describe this book really but it's written in 2002 and if nothing else is just a healthy dose of nostalgia. At times, it seems as if the book is leading you down a particular path, but you're never exactly sure who or what to trust.
