Season's greetings! I hope you are enjoying a relaxing break somewhere warm. Maybe you need a book? Something a little different? This is a book aimed at teens and young adults. I always wanted to write for the age group, but the way it worked out, it was stories for adults that percolated to the surface first.
Atoma and the Blockchain Game is now available for pre-order at Amazon. The book goes on sale January the 10th. Book 1 of planned series begins in the year 2050 and tells the story of a girl named Atoma who makes an almost fatal mistake the day she decides not to take her Attention Deficiency medication.
The world is controlled by a giant corporation called Earth Incorporated. Artificial Intelligence runs all the mega-cities through the Blockchain. Only Zeros, unable to access the system are by default are exempt from the Orwellian oversight. Zeros have no legal status and are interned in gulags, giant re-education centers that are really labor camps in the freezing Alaskan wilderness.
But, Atoma, a bright young teenager, is given an opportunity to avoid spending the rest of her life behind high walls. She has been picked to join a team of young teenage Zeros just like her to be trained for a mysterious mission.
I think there will be enough science thriller/science fiction in the book to keep it interesting for most SF buffs, and enough laughs to keep the rest happy.
Book 2 will be out in March. Wishing all my readers a healthy and, hopefully, a not too exciting New Year.
