"The Rift Frequency"

Amy S. Foster is a celebrated songwriter, best known as Michael Bublé’s writing partner, and has collaborated with Beyoncé, Diana Krall, Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban, and a host of other artists. She is also the author of the novel When Autumn Leaves. When she’s not in a studio in Nashville, she lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family.

Foster applied the Page 69 Test to her new novel, The Rift Frequency, and reported the following:
I think I might have failed this test! Oh no! The thing about The Rift Frequency is that it takes place in the multiverse. My main girl Ryn and her trusty sidekick (and possibly, maybe sidepiece lol) Levi travel to eleven different iterations of Earth. So, unless you knew that’s what they were doing, a reader could potentially be like, wait, what?.

On page 69, Ryn and Levi are on my favorite Earth, one populated by robots who look like famous people. The robots, called SenMachs are treating these two for radiation that they acquired on another, very toxic, uninhabitable Earth. This is one small section of the book where it’s pretty sci-fi  heavy and filled with some technical lingo. Levi’s holo-projection is naked- so my hope is that would be enough for a reader to be like genes? Compounds? Oh look, he’s got no clothes on, cool, let’s see what’s happening here!
