Book Launch: “Natural Selection” by Diane McGyver

Quarter Castle Publishing is proud to announce the release of Diane McGyver’s first dystopian novel Natural Selection.

The Details

The book is 111,000 words in length. The paperback with standard print measures 6 inches wide by 9 inches tall and contains 402 pages.


It’s classified as a dystopian novel laced with light romance. The year is 2051, 28 years after The Devastation that destroyed all technology in the world. Life has returned to the 1800s, and only those who survived the environmental disaster remember the lost technology and tell fascinating stories about it to those born since.


The story revolves around three main characters: Eloise, Hadwin and James.

Eloise is living with Uncle Gristle in Green Wood, Forest of Rains, when the story opens. She spends her days finding adventure in the forest, growing and gathering food and learning about nature.

Hadwin and his travelling companion Mug are entering the town of Louth to make a trade with the king of the town. He’s been on his own since he was 16 and seeks adventure and freedom.

James Proctor is king of Regal County and is busy building his kingdom at Ravencroft. His biggest problems are increasing his meagre population  to aid in the continuation of the human race and finding quality trees to turn into lumber to build his town.

Reader Age Group

Given the light romance with only minor kissing and the lack of descriptive violence, this book is suitable for ages 14 and up, which puts it as a young adult book. However, adults will also enjoy the story.

Where to Buy the eBook

Natural Selection is available exclusively at Amazon. Kindle Unlimited members read for free.

Paperbacks with standard and large print will be available soon. Hard cover books will be available in early 2022.
