Decoda Literacy Solutions has a partner, in the form of Comox Valley author B.V. Bayly.

During the month of June, Bayly will donate partial proceeds from all sales for the debut novel of his new series Eden’s Ore to Decoda, to support literacy in more than 400 communities across B.C.

The novel – a dystopian sci-fi genre – has just hit the shelves at all Chapters and Coles in the province. It is also available for order online at Amazon.ca in paperback and e-book.

“It’s summer, a great time to put your feet up and enjoy a book, to disappear into a great story and relax,” said Bayly, who encourages anyone who doesn’t normally read to try his book.

“I really hope everyone will consider this a unique opportunity to support literacy and enjoy a great read.”

The novel, titled Secrets, is a fast-paced science-fiction thriller in which a near-future Earth has solved its energy crisis with an undiscovered ore.

Powerful crystals of endless energy, they promise to reshape the world into the Eden it once was, but at what cost?

When one man gets a shard of the ore embedded in his chest during a freak accident, he gains unexpected powers and is set upon a dangerous path where he is hunted by those who control the ore.

As he struggles to unlock his own abilities, he discovers the terrible secret of the ore.

It’s the first of a series of five books set to release over the next two years.

“We are excited to share this opportunity with a B.C. author,” noted Brenda Le Clair of Decoda.

“Literacy is important for all Canadians and we want to promote that message every chance we get. The great thing about this partnership is that we’re getting people engaged in a literacy activity, while at the same time, they are supporting literacy for others.”
