Title: Free pdf of my novel
Post by: MamaLiberty on March 22, 2015, 02:57:39 pm
I'd like to give a copy of my novel to anyone who'd like to read it. Have not yet made up my mind if I'm going to publish it, one way or another, and would like input.

It's a story that takes place after an economic crash, mostly in NE Wyoming. It's called "Consequences."  Reflects long term thinking about how people would organize their communities and deal with problems in the absence of centralized government. It's not an easy story, and there are more questions than answers by the end...

Here is one review:
Quote
Consequences

"It" finally happened. The value of the US dollar was at last recognized by the entire world as a negative number and much of the world economic structure that had depended on it collapsed in flames. The container ships stopped arriving and very real threats were made by creditor countries. Very few people could continue to produce much of anything with no cash and no credit possible, so tax revenues vanished. The government could no longer pretend to "borrow" and the printing presses fell silent. And when the checks stopped coming to the millions of welfare recipients, pensioners, government employees at every level...

The manure actually hit the oscillating wind machine and all hell broke loose. The cities burned and the violence of millions of desperate and angry people became the norm. Since most had never learned to restrain themselves, soon there was none and chaos reigned.

Consequences is the story of a small group of people who had foreseen this possibility and prepared for it. They have to deal with this chaos, and they are prepared to use as much violence as necessary to defend themselves.  As always, there are unintended complications and our heroes must first go out into the holocaust of imploding civilization to rescue some of their own -  who had not quite prepared enough.

But the real story is how they carry on the vital necessities of living, working together and forming a whole new society built on voluntary association and cooperation instead of central planning and coercion. These are real people, with real fears, loves, hates, needs and the baggage of history to deal with. They make real mistakes, pick themselves up and go on to deal with other people and their environment the best they can.

Take a journey into this new and challenging world. Consider whether or not it is a place you'd like to live. If it is, start thinking about how you and your like minded neighbors might build a free and prosperous future. The possibilities are exciting and beautiful.

Every choice and action has consequences. Utopia is not an option.

Just send a PM with an email address, or email me directly. Put "Consequences" into the subject line so it will go into the appropriate filter and be answered promptly.

I'd be glad for any technical tips, but please limit it to a PM. Don't want to start any controversy here. :)

Thanks, fruitcake.

Here's the deal... I have zero interest in ever becoming involved with the IRS again... :)

I write mostly for my own amusement, and am happy to share it with anyone else who wants to read it. I don't expect I'd sell enough of them to make much difference in my financial status (and terrified that I might), but I'd most likely once again be filing tax forms and keeping "records" for the vampires. And that's not happening if I can get out of it.  :laugh:

And I'm sure they, or someone in the cesspool, would not be happy with the "subversive" nature of my little fiction anyway.  Send me an email: mamaliberty at rtconnect dot net - replace the at and dot with appropriate symbols and eliminate the spaces. Put "consequences" in the subject line so I'll see it quickly.
