To celebrate the release of a new edition of her critically acclaimed YA debut, Oasis, Eilís Barrett will release an exclusive first chapter of the book’s sequel, Genesis, on her website www.eilisbarrett.com at midnight on Friday, 14 October 2016.


Eilís Barrett took the media by storm in March 2016, when at just 16 years old, she released her debut YA novel to critical acclaim. A new edition of Oasis is now available at the lower price of just €9.99 / £8.99, with a brand new cover.


Fans will have to wait until spring 2017 for the official release of the sequel, Genesis, but can get a much anticipated glimpse into the fate of our heroine, Quincy Emmerson, with the exclusive sneak preview of the first chapter online.


A new edition of Oasis is now available on our website and in all good bookstores, priced at €9.99.

 

Oasis is available on our website, Eason, Amazon and in all good bookstores.

Praise for Oasis


‘This futuristic sci-fi echoes Margaret Atwood and yet was written by a 16-year-old from Galway. Expect great things from this young, brilliant writer,’ Image.


‘A high-paced page-turner that holds its own against any of the big names working in the YA Genre … Eilís is an intellectual powerhouse’, Irish Mail on Sunday.


‘An assured dystopian debut. On the promise of this page-turning debut, the sequel will be worth waiting for’, Sunday Business Post.
‘Extraordinarily engaging … Eilís is dazzlingly bright and articulate’, Irish Examiner.


‘Our newest literary star’, Irish Independent.


About the author


Eilís Barret is 17 and hails from Galway, on Ireland’s west coast, where she shares a home with her mother, three brothers and her dog, Rosie. Passionate about all things literary, she can usually be found reading or writing stories filled with action, adventure and true love.


At the age of 15, Eilís signed a two-book deal with Gill Books. She has since spoken at Eason’s inaugural Irish YA convention and was honoured by Irish Tatler as a Future Maker, one of the young women they believe have the brilliance to shape the next era. Eilís’ debut YA novel, Oasis, was published in March 2016. The sequel to Oasis will be out in 2017, and after that … who knows!
