At last I have finished the final corrections to my novel and published it. This is officially my first published novel—albeit a self-published one. Here’s the description on the back cover description:
A comical high-tech thriller, tells the story of Oliver Whitman, a computer programmer and a friend who is a conspiracy theorist who believes Homeland Security is working with Starbucks to add chemicals to their coffee to sedate the middle-class public when negative press is released about the President.
One night Oliver helps his friend try to remove what he believes is a virus on his computer, but is actually someone hacking into the machine. Provoked and caught up in harmless geek fun, Oliver tries to fight back. Unfortunately, he’s been tricked: he’s been lured into attacking Starbucks™ server. Realizing his blunder, he makes a run for it, barely escaping apprehension by Homeland Security agents. Relentlessly pursued, he finds danger wherever he turns. He has to do something, but what? Someone is going to get hurt and surviving is going to require some difficult choices.
The cost of production came in higher than I had hoped. It has a list price of $23.95. Still, if you want to buy a copy, click on the book cover image. That will direct you to Lulu’s web site where you can order it. After you read my novel, please let me know what you think of it.
I think I’ve figured out a way to bring the price of my novel down to only twelve U.S. dollars. So, if you were thinking of ordering a copy, wait a couple of weeks more. Check back here for a new link to the lower priced copy.
