Blog tour event: Escape to Eden by Rachel McClellan

Run now!

When seventeen-year-old Sage wakes up in a hospital with no memories, her only clue are the words written on her hand. With a deadly disease threatening to wipe out mankind, Sage must find out who she is and why most people would kill to get their hands on her--before it's too late. This fast-paced, futuristic thriller is a spine-tingling read!


Rachel McClellan was born and raised in Idaho, a place secretly known for its supernatural creatures. When she's not in her writing lair, she's partying with her husband and four crazy, yet lovable, children. Rachel's love for storytelling began as a child when the moon first possessed the night. For when the lights went out, her imagination painted a whole new world. And what a scary world it was... 

A Chat with Rachel...

1.      What inspired your book?
a.       Instead of writing a novel about a typical hero with a special ability, I wanted to write about an average person who had to live in a world where everyone else had special abilities. This idea stayed with me for so long that I knew I had to write about it.
2.      How do you spend your free time?
a.       If I'm not writing, then I'm playing outdoors or watching super hero movies.
3.      What is the thing you struggle with the most while writing? And how do you defeat it?
a.       Writing the beginning of a novel is always the hardest part. It can be difficult to determine where a story actually begins. To combat this, I just begin writing and then go back to it when the story is finished. Almost always I end up cutting the first chapter and begin with chapter two.
4.      When did you first realize you were an author?
a.       I don't think I've ever realized it. I am a writer first. Maybe one deal I will feel like an author.
5.      If your book was made into a movie, who would play the main character roles?
a.     Sage Radkey: Lucy Hale
b.     Colt: Dylan O'brien
c.     Jenna: Dove Cameron
d.     Anthony: Theo James
e.     Max: Levi Miller

Escape To Eden Excerpt:
"Stop!" a man shouts. He runs towards us. Two more appear behind him.
Jenna reaches a hand down. "Grab it!"
Colt takes hold and she easily lifts him out. They are all so strong.
"Go up, Sage,” Anthony says. “I've got these guys.”
He's holding the same dagger I'd had in my hand earlier.
"I'm not leaving you alone," I say.
"Three guys is nothing. I'll be fine. Go."
I look up toward where my brother sits waiting for me and then back at Anthony.
"Stop right there and we'll let you live," a guard says. He has a single spike sticking out of his otherwise bald head.
"Don't listen to him Sage," Anthony says. "You're too valuable. Just go before they capture Max again."
This makes me move. I scramble up the ladder. When I'm at the top, I shout down, "Come on! You can make it."
He stares up at me through the narrow opening and smiles. "Change the world," he says just as an invisible blast knocks him to the ground.
