ALEXA.CVR.MED.LARGE.5.17.17

One Day in the Life of Alexa
by Lisa Mason

Alexa Denisovitch, a refugee from Kosovo during the 1999 war, is just seventeen when she is accepted by GenGineer Laboratories as a Tester for Longeva, a revolutionary additive that may significantly extend her longevity.

But becoming a Tester has unintended consequences and Longeva causes devastating unforeseen side effects.

Confronting environmental, political, and personal perils of the future, Alexa must grapple with the tough questions of life, love, and death.

It’s good to take a moment and reflect on what a great nation we live in. You only have to study history or other nations in the world right now to appreciate the unprecedented freedom we enjoy in the USA today. We each have a huge responsibility to uphold that freedom and ensure our founding principles continue untrampled. Yes, our country has its share of problems—what country or time period or human being doesn’t?—but with good will and good conscience we can and will work things out.

In the next couple of days, I’ll be posting my updated Virtual Bookstore. Only three years ago, I started out with one title—Summer of Love—and a total lack of expertise on how to build ebooks.

As of today, I’ve got twenty-five, beautifully formatted titles—twenty-five!—on each of eight retailers: Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Apple iTunes, Kobo, Sony, Libraries, and Diesel. The titles are also (in English) on each of Amazon’s nine domestic and foreign sites: the US, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Brazil, India, and Japan.

The updated Virtual Bookstore will list US Kindle, Canada Kindle, UK Kindle, and Smashwords (which covers all those other devices). I’m hoping to include Apple iTunes, Kobo, and Sony, but if we can’t get them up this go round, we’ll get them up for another posting later this month.

The main thing is, we’ve got you covered!

As for the foreign Amazon links, we haven’t decided whether to clutter things up with another seven links that most people reading this probably won’t use. But we’ll see.

I’ve got two interviews coming up and three major new projects in the works, as well as two big backlist projects. The second half of 2013 will be as busy as the first!

Because of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the core principle of free speech in this great nation, I as an author have the right to express any point of view I want to.

No, I never engage in hate speech or defame anyone.

But neither am I required to say one thing rather than another. You only have to study history or other nations of the world right now to fully realize just what a precious right that is. People in the past, people in other countries today were and are persecuted, imprisoned, or killed for expressing their thoughts and opinions.

Let us never take that right for granted.

I’ve often said here and elsewhere, my writerly obsessions are self-empowerment, especially of women, personal freedom, and justice.

Yes, I write fiction and yes, I write science fiction, fantasy, romance, and suspense.

Especially today, I think readers understand that beneath the gloss of entertainment, there is a serious underpinning of thought. After Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, George Orwell’s 1984, even Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games, readers may look to fiction, even genre fiction, for provocative ideas.

I invite you to sample some of mine.

So there you have it, my friends. As Patrick Henry said over two hundred years ago, “I may not agree with what you’re saying, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

Stay tuned! The new Virtual Bookstore is coming!

New! After two days, flying off the shelf! Strange Ladies: 7 Stories is on Nook, US Kindle, Canada Kindle, UK Kindle, and Smashwords (all other readers including Kobo, Sony, and Apple). Short fantasy and science fiction by Lisa Mason published in magazines and anthologies worldwide.

From the author of Celestial Girl, The Omnibus Edition (A Lily Modjeska Mystery) on Nook, US Kindle, UK Kindle, and Smashwords, The Garden of Abracadabra, Volume 1 of the Abracadabra Series, on Nook, Kindle, Smashwords, and UK Kindle, Summer of Love, A Time Travel (a Philip K.

Tesla is now on Nook, Kindle, Smashwords, and UK Kindle!

Genius. Visionary. Madman.

Nikola Tesla (1856–1943) was the pioneering genius who invented the AC electrical system that powers our world to this day, as well as radio, remote control, the automobile speedometer, X-ray photography, the AND logic gate that drives all our computer systems, and countless other devices and precursors to devices such as cell phones, television, and the Internet that we so effortlessly use today.

Strikingly handsome and charismatic, fluent in half a dozen languages, mathematics savant and master machinist, a reed-thin perfectionist who quoted poetry like a Victorian rapper, Tesla became one of the most famous men of his day. Friend of tycoons like John Jacob Astor and Stanford White and celebrities like Mark Twain and Sarah Bernhardt.

Yet Tesla was an intensely driven and lonely man, beset by inner demons, and cursed with a protean inventive imagination a century ahead of his time. He died in obscurity and poverty and, to this day, his name is not widely known. How did that happen?

Blending historical fact with speculative imagination, Lisa Mason explores the secrets of the Inventor’s inner life and his obsession with Goethe’s Faust set against the backdrop of sweeping technological changes at the turn of the twentieth century that have forever changed the world.

Tesla, A Worthy of His Time was read by the producer of “Aliens,” “The Abyss,” and “The Hulk.” A List of Sources follows the Screenplay.

Tesla is on Nook, Kindle, Smashwords, and UK Kindle.

From the author of The Garden of Abracadabra, Volume 1 of the Abracadabra Series, on Nook, Kindle, Smashwords, and UK Kindle, Summer of Love, A Time Travel (a Philip K. Dick Award Finalist and San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book) on Nook, Kindle, Smashwords, and UK Kindle, and The Gilded Age, A Time Travel (a New York Times Notable Book and New York Public Library Recommended Book) on Nook, Kindle, Smashwords, and UK Kindle.
