My good friend, J.L., continues to add insult to injury. Not only has he trumped me to the self-publishing table, but now he has also decided that he will be his own in-depth marketing firm for his first book!

With a tablespoon of politics, a pinch of dystopia, and a dash of conspiracy, this tale will take you on an entertaining ride with an ending you won't expect." --- At least, that is what I read somewhere!
