Paradox of Progress

Paradox of Progress

Every five years the Director of National Intelligence releases a pretty substantial report on growing trends and they've recently released one called "The Paradox of Progress."  It's a fairly substantial report with numerous implications on American geopolitical positioning based on the assessments and assumptions made within it, and it's a report that most Americans will never consider reading. So I wanted to unpack it, key point by key point, and provide context as much as possible to help at least a handful of Americans slug through it.

The premise is simple: Every Science Fiction story that I've ever read either assumed that Earth had globalized under one central government before contact with extraterrestrials and we were able to survive the encounter, or we had not globalized and we were defeated. I aim to fill that niche in the Science Fiction community; essentially, I aim to write a geopolitical drama with E.T. playing a leading role.

Free Weekend: DAISY

My first short story, DAISY is free this weekend on Amazon as part of a promotional event.  However, not only can you pick up the 22 page short story for free this weekend, but if you leave a candid (favorable or critical) review on Amazon or Goodreads, I'll throw in a free advanced review copy of Understanding IT before it releases on July 4th.

Amazon not your style?  Don't worry, once the introductory 90 day period of Amazon exclusivity wears off, my book(s) will be made available on Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and the Apple store.  And - more to the point - each new platform will have its own sales and freebie weekends!
