“Wonders” / and an invitation for beta readers of a new novel / #627

“…the rumor that there was another, an eighth wonder of the world…” – Kafka

     There is an infinite number of wonders of the world. They are gathered, waiting for one of the famous seven to be destroyed so the next one in queue can take its place. This process takes a very long time. Right now, there is squabbling among the wonders over which will replace the fallen Colossus of Rhodes.


BETA READERS WANTED for my third novel, Try Try Again. Here’s the blurb:

“The near future: the year’s hottest TV show is a rebroadcast of highlights from a famous televised trial (the murder of a Congressman) where viewers can log in and “act” along with the trial principals via a Kinect-like device. Contestants (“agonists”) the show’s computer selects as the best in-character at any given moment win cash prizes. But there are unanswered questions about the trial – was the killer, a loser named Charley Dukes, put up to the killing by someone else? Why? The novel focuses on one at-home agonist, Jillian Hall, who is obsessed with the role of defense attorney. Jillian discovers the truth about the murder and the nefarious high-level plot behind it, in collaboration with the real defense attorney from the original trial – the woman Jillian has tried so hard to “be” for the past year.”

No obligation to report on the novel, but all views will be gratefully received. For a copy (pdf) comment here, or email terencekuch /a/t/ gmail.com. Your email address will not be used for any other purpose.

See you tomorrow! Whatever happens here, you won’t be expecting it.
