Jenna McCormick for Writers Gone Wild
I apologize if this post is a bit manic, but I am running on caffine fumes and sheer force of will here! Holiday hangover, oy.
Happy New Year and may 2012 be the year of the wild writer! And happy release to me because my very first big six published novel, No Limits is now available from Kensington Aphrodisia!
Yeah baby, I have been waiting for this for a LONG time. Well, not this book since it has been less than fifteen months since I wrote it but for the big news of a big sale on a new release. So, to celebrate I'm giving away a big prize to one winner of my No Limits blog tour! A Kindle Fire!
These babies are wicked cool and pure fun. It will handle all of your cloud storage entertainment needs. I bought one for my ten year old and steal it whenever I can. The picture is glorious and the fact that I can hold in my hand something that looks like it was beamed of the bridge of the starship Enterprise sets my little geek heart a flutter. I want one for myself but am holding out until they come out with an effective way to write with it.
Honestly, the way technology changes astounds me. My husband and I snicker over the clunky cell phones and monolithic type hard drives from eighties and early nineties movies. The music may have been bitchin' but being able to listen to it on an iPod is soooooo much better. Imagine watching something like the original Tron or Star Trek: The Motion Picture with obviously dated technology on a Kindle Fire, Nook or iPad. Boggles the mind, doesn't it?
And speaking of which, I'm going to share a pretty kick ass invention of my own. Designed by me, to enhance the future, well at least in the confines of No Limits.
Excerpt from No Limits by Jenna McCormick
Alison smiled. “Sure, a little history then. As you probably know, scores of corporate pleasure troves emerged when prostitution was legalized in 2059 after the advent of personal health shields. Most of those starter businesses were individuals or small groups, specifically geared toward male clientele. Prostitution is of course the oldest profession known to humanity, and with the safety screens preventing both transfer of disease and unwanted pregnancy, well, it was really just a matter of time until everyone wanted a piece of the action, so to speak.”
Gen nodded “From what I read, that time period was chaos—people misrepresenting themselves on online databases, moral objections, especially from women’s rights groups.”
Alison smiled. “Exactly so. What sets Illustra apart is the packaging. We abolished the skeeve associated with prostitution, the old style whorehouse concept, while still offering a taste of the forbidden. We were the first to make our database women-friendly by acquiring male therapists, who then agreed to give out free samples, keeping quality control of our roster. Our commitment to excellence is what sets us apart.”
Real history, make believe future history, plus my total germaphobia and Bam! We have a new society filled with well equipped randy people!
