A Moment's Worth
Lauren Lola, author
Is the interconnectivity of the human race more than just the fundamentals of the Chinese tale of the red thread? Is the line between what’s real and what’s not as fine as we’ve been led to believe? How do narratives intersect each other without colliding and clashing? What can be uncovered, discovered, and even learned in a short period of time? In her debut novel, Lauren Lola presents a cast of characters as they go about life as they know it, but not always in the most usual of circumstances. Some characters will mingle amongst each other, some will never meet; some whose identities take a while to be unveiled, some are left a mystery. From a UCLA freshman getting to know her celebrity roommate, to a man who unintentionally takes the San Francisco BART to a variety of locations beyond its final stop; from a fatherless girl who believes in the stars, to a young woman who carries the burden of being human, A Moment’s Worth is guaranteed to leave eyes seeing life a little more differently than before, for those who keep their minds wide open.
Reviews
Maci and Zoe Read Books

"As the book progresses, you read more and more small little stories and you continue to realize how they all connect. It is really cool, and this is a great idea. It could go horribly wrong or be really good. This book falls into the latter."

-via Zoe of Maci and Zoe Read Books

The Best Slice of Pie

Newark author releases debut novel

Newark author and native Lauren Lola has just released her debut novel, "A Moment's Worth." The contemporary-fantasy-sci-fi eBook features a cast of characters that demonstrate the power of human interconnectivity, the vague line between fiction and reality, and value of moments in time.

Set primarily in modern times, the book follows this collective group of individuals, as they go about their lives, but not always in the most "normal" of circumstances. Opening with an evening spent between a UCLA freshman getting to know her celebrity roommate, the book weaves its way to a conversation between an aspiring stage actress and a fatherless girl who believes in the stars; to a man riding on BART who winds up traveling to places beyond the actual train line. All the while, the appearance of a mysterious young woman who struggles to be human can be spotted throughout several of the chapters.

Twenty-two year old author Lola always knew she would write a book someday, but never expected it to be this soon. She wrote "A Moment's Worth" while enrolled as a full-time student at California State University, East Bay.

"For a while, I was firm on the idea that I was writing a short story collection," Lola explained in an interview with blogger Draven Katayama. "However, unlike normal short story collections, there [are] some stories where certain characters [will] make appearances in, and some characters [will] be related- whether in the form of friendship or family bonds- to other characters."

Lola credits English author David Mitchell (author of the New York Times bestseller "Cloud Atlas") and television writer/creator Tim Kring of "Heroes" fame for inspiring a book that showcases the uniqueness and surrealism of the connection amongst all humans. With those elements in mind, she gained the confidence to realize that she was writing far more than the typical debut novel.

The eBook is available for download on sites such as Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, iBooks and more. Also, check out Lola's blog at www.lolabythebay.wordpress.com.
