The Crystilleries of Echoland

Tal Boldo is a self-published, award-winning novelist and audio book reader and producer. She likes to write under pseudonyms that relate to her stories. Her teen fantasy, The Crystilleries of Echoland, was published under Dew Pellucid (Tal being the Hebrew word for Dew, and Dew being an Echo's name). The novel is a 2018 Los Angeles Book Festival Runner-up. Her adult love story, Looking Glass Friends, was published under E. L. Neve (an anagram of 11, or a symbol of two individuals standing side-by-side). The novel won 11 awards. Tal recorded and produced the audio book herself.

The most important thing the author wants readers to gain from her book:

The see-through, glistening land of the Echoes is haunted by hate. How lucent your skin is determines whether you live or die. Until two boys, an Echo and his Sound, unravel a 250 year old riddle and change Echoland forever.

Why the author is an authority on the subject of her book:

The Crystilleries of Echoland was twelve years in the making, resulting in an intricate plot that revolves tightly around its message of equality for all individuals.
