Mark Eric's Debut Novel - Benders - Released

New Indie Author Brings Diversity and Blended Genre to Digital Bookshelves 

March 27, 2014 - New York City, NY – Mark Eric Entertainment, a New York based publisher and entertainment house, has released Mark Eric’s anticipated contemporary science fiction thriller, Benders, in digital formats. Currently available through iTunes, Amazon, Barnes & Noble's websiteGoogle Play, and kobo, Benders offers a refreshing break and delivers to readers a fun escape tossed with supernatural powers and a heart-warming romance.


An easy-going young man, Monty has spent his life at a distance from those around him as he hides his unique talent to bend people’s thoughts to do anything he desires. Unaware that these abilities are being monitored, Monty exposes himself with a reckless act and puts himself in the crosshairs of Hazelton, a power-hungry uber-patriot who hunts down each bender for execution to ensure his attempt at seizing global power comes to fruition.


Mieko, Monty’s fiery lover, partners with his oldest friend in a race to find and rescue the best man she’s ever met and the only one powerful enough to save the world from Hazelton's insane plan. Those that know Monty are willing to risk it all for him.


Early reviews indicate it won't be long before Eric soon becomes one of America's favorite cross-cultural authors. Nancy Joyce, What'cha Reading? blogger, stated, “Benders is a rollicking good time…It definitely kept me turning the pages fast enough that I polished it off in two days…It's a rambling, enthralling ride that hooks you from the start.”


Eric, a NYC native with more than 20 years of creative writing experience spanning multiple genre and media, pours his creative energy onto the page in a way that both thrills and entertains. His range and unique tales will delight readers, and his dynamic multicultural casts reflect the rising demand in American entertainment for a richer, more diverse mix of age, race, gender, and socioeconomic status.


Mark Eric commented, “Audiences are hungry for stories they can connect to. Benders weaves reality and fiction to allow readers to be in the moment and sink their hearts and minds into heroes they quickly come to embrace and enemies they hope to be destroyed.“
