Remember when Miira was inducted into Innerscape and basically lost her whole skull so Kenneth Wu’s nano interface could connect the AI to her brain? Not quite there yet but…this article shows that it’s coming. And I actually forecast it…
Okay, okay, probably not that hard to do if you read sci-fi, but I’m still proud as punch.
Just a quick post to let you know that I’ve changed my book page. Instead of listing links to my books on non-Amazon sites, I’ve simply provided links to those books which are free for download as epubs [suitable for Kobo etc].
As before, the free books are available via the sync.com site and no registration or sign-in is required. Click the ‘Free Books by acflory’ tab at the top of this page to access the links.
I currently have two ebooks available for free download:
Miira, book 1 of Innerscape
The Vintage Egg
Please feel free to download both of them.
Okay, that’s it. I’ve done my admin., vacuumed and mopped all the floors, washed and disinfected surfaces, soothes disgruntled cats and generally been very productive…now it’s time for play!
Back in May, 2015, I wrote a post about faces which included photos of real people who reminded me of Miira Tahn and Kenneth Wu, two of the main characters of the story I was writing. Then, late last year  I discovered Plotagon and learned how to create animated cartoon characters for a different kind of storytelling.
These are some of the faces from Innerscape, then and now:
I haven’t found photos for the rest of the characters in the trilogy, but here are some Plotagon versions:
And last, but not least, Charles McGragh and Peter McAlister, both of whom work for the Innerscape corporation:
If any of you come across a real face that you think might suit one of these Plotagon cartoons, please let me know!
And now a reminder – the Innerscape Omnibus is still free and will remain so until midnight April 24, in the northern hemisphere.
To start, type in the name of the first city. I chose Seattle because that’s where Amazon is located.
Next, choose your own city. For me that was Melbourne, Australia.
The converter will now show you the current time in both cities. To work out what the time will be when the free period ends, click on the date in Seattle and change it to April 24. Next, click on the time and change that to 23:59 – i.e. one minute to midnight.
The timezone converter will now show you precisely when the promotion will end in your part of the world. For Australians along the east coast it will be at… :
In my last post I sent out a call for help, and my wonderful online friends answered.
This is the ‘before’ blurb:
‘Innerscape is marketed as a digital paradise where the terminally ill live out their lives in young, pain free bodies indistinguishable from the real thing. But Miira Tahn, last Lady of Dhurai, soon discovers that all is not well in paradise; an assassin is stalking the Burning Man, and nothing is what it seems. Together with friends, Kenneth Wu and Jaimie Watson, Miira becomes embroiled in a deadly game of cat and mouse where losing means death. Only by fighting back can she save herself, and those she loves.’
This is the ‘after’ blurb that will accompany the Omnibus onto the Kindle:
Innerscape: a virtual paradise where the terminally ill live out their lives in young, pain free bodies. But Miira Tahn discovers paradise is an illusion. An assassin stalks the Burning Man. Lies masquerade as truth. Together with her friends, Miira plunges into a deadly game of cat and mouse. If she loses, she loses everything. Her life – Those she loves – All of Innerscape.
