Jack Lee is a likeable character, with secret horrific memories which never quite leave his consciousness. This affects his relationships and all of his life, until years later the possible nightmare scenario for our planet returns, but no-one takes him seriously.
A love triangle runs along this thread when the two people whom he holds most dear in his life become a couple.
We have messed up the earth, haven’t we, us humans. If a quick fix solution came along would we take it, regardless of the warnings? Regardless of the consequences.
Not a genre I’m usually drawn to, but I was gripped by this novel, the unexpected twists, the drama and love element. It was a compelling read.
This is Ian K Pulham’s debut novel and a touching tribute to his mum and dad, who would have been so proud …
It is great to share news of other Eventispress authors and here’s news of a recently arrived member of the Eventispress family!
Ian K Pulham has just released a short story, an action packed dystopian drama, which is the prequel to his soon to be published debut novel ‘Ticket to Eden’.
He’s giving away his short story ‘Radical Action’ for free, if you sign up for news about his novel:
About the story
So, how do you deal with a violent and aggressive cult of over a thousand troubled souls, camped-out in a politically sensitive neighbourhood in the Middle East? Oh yes, and whose membership appears to be multi-national and led by a native of the USA?
I found the story gripping and quite unnerving, in this climate of uncertainty, climate change and sea pollution; a disaster waiting to happen. His novel which follows, however, although traumatic to the earth as we know it, gives a tiny glimmer of hope. Only just!
I love today’s Google Doodle and it brings to mind fellow author Brian Kerr’s recently released book
HOW TO VALUE A SKYLARK
The Countryside in a Time of Change
In it he reflects on climate change and it’s immediate effect on our countryside, predominantly in the UK. Brian:
evaluates the current trends in making amends
looks in a balanced way on the impact on livelihoods and our countryside
makes further suggestions
and in short asks two questions
Can we put a value on what we treasure in our countryside? ie a skylark or a bluebell wood
Can we hesitate any longer?
Brian is offering two of his paperback books, currently marketed in Amazon at £19.99 but can be bought on Waterstones, Blackwells and Hive books or through the author or directly through the publisher Eventispress.
Brian asks only for two things;
What is your interest as a reader in issues of this climate emergency?
Would you be willing to give an honest review for publicity purposes?
Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
