Critical Acclaim for

Who knew Silicon Valley
could be sexy?
Sadie Hayes’ debut ebook series
The Start-Up
describes the real side of Silicon Valley and how its power corrupts. You will tear through this page-turner and will be begging for more!” –Amy Gleason


The Start-Up
we see the beginning of Adam and Amelia Dory’s climb to wealth and power… This fast-paced novel has provocative characters trying to figure out how to navigate a world controlled by money and bad intentions.
I dare you to put it down
!” –Becky Julian


“Silicon Valley and cliffhangers may be strange bedfellows, but Palo Alto writer Sadie Hayes debut,
The Start-Up
, is an
unexpectedly addictive
new novel that combines high tech hi-jinks with high tech publishing: a serial eNovel with monthly new releases planned.” –Gary Griffiths


“Sadie Hayes is on her way to becoming
a new kind of bestseller
- an eBook bestseller.” –Grady Harp


“Exciting, entertaining, and informative -
The Start-Up
a must read
for anyone interested in the fast paced worlds of entrepreneurship,
Silicon Valley, and venture capital.” -J.R. Sedivy, Chairman and CEO, Analytika, Inc.


A well-crafted, fast-moving tale
of the conflict which arises when honesty and integrity confront the wealth and oft-corrupted power of the high-tech world of Silicon Valley. An excellent read.” Frederick J. Masterman, author of
Season of the Plant


“Sadie Hayes provides
a screen shot of technology’s sordid underbelly
in this riveting e-book novella.” –Bill Bentrim,


“Start to finish it holds your interest and
Hayes’ writing is
spectacular and absolutely breath-taking!
The way the story was presented was like watching a incredibly good one. I am begging for more Sadie Hayes! A job well done and I would highly recommend it. This is a fun and fast-pace novel that I think most will thoroughly enjoy!” – Jess, Sit Here and Read


Sadie Hayes has blown me away with this series
. This is something new in the YA genre…get to your nearest Ereader device and buy these books.” – Courtney Wyant, Courtney’s Book Nook


“The Start-Up
is a short read, and the dialogue is sharply realistic.
This story is
something that I’ve never seen in Young Adult fiction
, so it’s different and unique. I highly recommend it to someone who enjoys stories about backstabbing, pretentious college students who are involved in the business world. I’m totally looking forward to reading the second installment,
The Anti-Social Network.
” – Lauren Nicole, Books From a Shelf


The Start Up
is particularly awesome, if I must say so myself. The novel was
light and
funny and carefree, yet it still reminded us of the sinister ways of society
. It was terrifically well written, and extremely witty, I practically smiled through the whole thing!” –Dana Hilgers, Dana Does Read


“Deep-seated greed and corruption intricately blended with naivety and intelligence,
The Start Up
by Sadie Hayes, is sharp, fun and full of angsty dramatic brilliance.
Gossip, intrigue and illegal corporate tactics sing from Silicon Valley,
telling us of the money to be made and the people who will destroy anyone in their way to get that money.” –Jen, In the Closet with a Bibliophile


“I loved these novellas!
The Start-Up
The Anti-Social Network are, in my opinion,
on the forefront of what is sure to be a great YA genre
in the future because the topic of advancing technology is extremely relevant.” –Sandra, Panda Reads


It’s deliciously good.
This read was a breath of fresh air. A brand new viewpoint on our favorite type of YA guilty pleasure.” – Sara Oestreich, The Librarian Reads


“A new series that combines the wonderful world of technology with the backstabbing and glamorous
life of the wealthy

I am hooked.
The Start Up
has everything you could want
in a modern day series [and] will draw many male and female fans a like.”


The Start-Up
an ideal topic for ebook serial fiction
, with genius programmer Amelia Dorey persuaded by her more worldly twin brother Adam to turn programs into dollars.” – Sheila Deeth


“This pure CW teen drama in a lot of ways - it’s the problems of beautiful people as they juggle relationships, drama, and school. And yet…I can’t deny that I was absolutely addicted to the first two parts of this series. As a marketing idea,
The Start-Up
takes King’s serializing of
The Green Mile
and brings it into the digital age
, both literally and figuratively.” – Joshua Mauthe
