~ About Author ~

Author LJ MCBAYNE HeaderAuthor L.J McBayne apart from being an amazing human and a fun-loving grandmother is a responsible sergeant. Right now, she is serving people by working for Miami-Dade Police Department.

Author L.J. McBayne is a woman of strength, power and virtue. She is a woman who knows no boundaries. She doesn’t like restricting herself to just one chosen profession which has led her to try her luck in all domains of life: from being a real estate investor back in 2004 to being a children book writer whenever she had free time on her watch. If anyone was to describe Author L.J. McBayne in one line, they would say: “She loves life dearly!”

Author L.J. McBayne’s writing journey started when she was pregnant with her son D’von in 1994. Like all parents, she too wanted to be the best mother to her son and provide him with the best of everything she could but more specifically providing her son with the best education was a priority for her. It was her son whose laudable interest and voracious appetite for reading lead her to writing stories; and eventually, making her an amazing children book writer that she is today.

Her commendable attention to detail and her commitment to making D’von’s future as bright as she could started soon after she read an article stating that a child’s learning capacity get developed in their first years of life. At first it was just flash cards but soon she realized that it wasn’t working out for her son; because it hardly took her son anytime to become accustomed to words so then she started writing stories from the words that her son had learnt.

Few years later, she was blessed with grandchildren who reignited that passion in her. She started again, now for her grandchildren. This time around she is writing children stories that are in line with the trends and interests of children of new age. She is excited and so are we to make those stories available here.
We hope that our readers enjoy this amazing initiative and inculcate the habit of reading in new generation. It is important that we teach our children the right values from childhood so that they can grow up to become responsible citizens.

Title: INDIVIDUTOPIA

Author: Joss Sheldon

Release Date: 23 August 2018

Summary:

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SOCIETY

Beloved friend,

The year is 2084, and that famous Margaret Thatcher quote has become a reality: There really is no such thing as society. No one speaks to anyone else. No one looks at anyone else. People don’t collaborate, they only compete.

I hate to admit it, but this has had tragic consequences. Unable to satisfy their social urges, the population has fallen into a pit of depression and anxiety. Suicide has become the norm.

It all sounds rather morbid, does it not? But please don’t despair, there is hope, and it comes in the form of our hero: Renee Ann Blanca. Wishing to fill the society-shaped hole in her life, our Renee does the unthinkable: She goes in search of human company! It’s a radical act and an enormous challenge. But that, I suppose, is why her tale’s worth recounting. It’s as gripping as it is touching, and I think you’re going to love it…

Your trusty narrator,

PP

WELCOME TO INDIVIDUTOPIA

Perhaps I should start at the beginning.

No, that really wouldn’t do. I must start this tale a long, long time before it begins.

You see, between your era and mine, here in the year 2084, the world has changed so much that it would be remiss of me not to bring you up to date. I fear, beloved friend, that the adventures of our hero, Renee Ann Blanca, wouldn’t make much sense if I didn’t provide a little context.

It may not surprise you to learn that the world will change dramatically over the course of the decades you’re about to experience. You live in times of unprecedented change yourself. But to understand the world you’ll live in tomorrow, you need to look backwards, not forwards, to 1979, and the election of Margaret Thatcher.

Thatcher’s ideology can be summed up by a single, prophetic quote. That short statement, a mere seven words long, would change the world forever.

It’s hard for us to imagine Margaret Thatcher as she spoke those seven words. Very few of my contemporaries have ever seen a picture of the Iron Lady. People these days are far too occupied with themselves to pay attention to anyone else. I do have an image in my mind of the former PM, although I can’t be sure if it’s correct. To me, she’s a colossus; halfmachine, half-human, with a helmet of metallic hair, shoulder pads made of steel and a tongue which could fire off bullets.

I digress. The way Thatcher looked is of no importance. We should be focussing our attention on those seven prophetic words. Those seven, tiny words, which weren’t in the slightest bit true, which had never been true, but which would become the only truth there was:

“There”

Thatcher’s voice pierced. It was a vinegary screech. It was an autocratic squeal. Poetry without colour. A shadow without light.

“Is”

A static hush buzzed between words.

“No”

A distant footstep failed to echo.

“Such”

A gasp was swallowed.

“Thing”

A camera flashed.

“As”

An eyelash fell.

“Society”

“There is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people. And people must look after themselves. It’s our duty to look after ourselves.”

With these seven words, the Cult of the Individual was born.

During the decades which followed, everyone would be forced to join.

By the time our hero was born, in the year 2060, Thatcher’s claim had become a reality. There really was no such thing as society. Our Renee was all alone.

~ About Author ~

JossJoss Sheldon is a scruffy nomad, unchained free-thinker, and post-modernist radical. Born in 1982, he was brought up in one of the anonymous suburbs which wrap themselves around London’s beating heart. Then he escaped!

With a degree from the London School of Economics to his name, Sheldon had spells selling falafel at music festivals, being a ski-bum, and failing to turn the English Midlands into a haven of rugby league.

Then, in 2013, he ran off to McLeod Ganj; an Indian village which plays home to thousands of angry monkeys, hundreds of Tibetan refugees, and the Dalai Lama himself. It was there that Sheldon wrote his debut novel, ‘Involution & Evolution’.

With several positive reviews to his name, Sheldon had caught the writing bug. He traveled to Palestine and Kurdistan, where he researched his second novel, ‘Occupied’; a dystopian masterpiece unlike anything you’ve ever read.

But it was with his third novel, ‘The Little Voice’, that Sheldon really hit the big time; topping the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, and gaining widespread critical acclaim.

In 2017 he returned with ‘Money Power Love’; a love story that charts the rise of the British Empire, and the way in which bankers, with the power to create money out of nothing, were able to shape the world we live in today.

Now Sheldon is back with what is arguably his best novel to date, ‘INDIVIDUTOPIA’. Fans of 1984 will love this dystopian classic, set in a world where corporations have destroyed society, and no one speaks to anyone else. This is a human story, full of hope, and an adventure, in which our hero does everything she can to escape…

~ About Author ~

Author picAuthor Nicole D’Settēmi is a 35 year old writer, currently living in upstate New York. She has lived in five regions nationally, including South Florida and New York City. She has always been a self-described “poetic, nomadic, creative soul,” and is an enthusiast of a variety of artistic mediums, but considers writing her number one form of art, and feels everything else is just an extension of that passion and creative outlet.
Nicole was raised in Niagara Falls, a tiny town bordering Canada, and can remember being as young as six, when writing her first lyrical, and philosophical poems. She also points out being selected at 6, for the “Young Authors Club,” which was a city-wide project.
Nicole won two city-wide essay contests between the ages 9-11, which was when she received her first typewriter and then she started a fan-club and newsletter for her childhood hero, as well as penning letters to over 30 pen-pals internationally.
Though Nicole (who was an honor student) rebelled by 15, and was incidentally expelled from school, she still wrote habitually. She once showed her “alternative-school” teacher a poem titled: “That’s Life,” which she penned at 14. He was so impressed with the piece; he had it faxed to every school in the city.
At 16 Nicole was uprooted from her small town and moved to Boca Raton, where she felt displaced and started to deal with depression. Hereditarily, mental illness and substance abuse ran rapid in her family tree, and by 20 she experimented with a plethora of chemical substances. By 23, she became addicted to shooting heroin, and was engaged to her co-conspirator and partner-in-crime. She attended an art school for photo journalism, but withdrew half-way through the year, due to a devastating addiction to injecting various drugs.
Addictarium was written while she spent two years in a therapeutic community for seriously addicted, and mentally ill, patrons. The author outlines her experiences, including the tale of losing her eyesight due to shooting a poisoned bag of heroin, which is when she was forced to hitch a greyhound bus from South Florida to Manhattan, and after several weeks of surgeries, was admitted to Daytop Village for long-term treatment, and drug addiction recovery. The book outlines many of the experiences

CoverTitle: Addictarium

Author: Nicole D’Settemi

Release Date: 1 September 2016

Goodreads | Amazon

Summary: 

Drugs. Sex. Detox. Art. Recovery. Prostitution. Music. Street life. Poetry. Toxic love. And, those are just on the surface. The layers and complexities of Addictarium will shock and enthrall you…

When wild-child, and south Florida escapee, Danielle Martino finds herself curled in a ball on the cold tile floors of her filthy rank bathroom in the tiny studio she rents with her fiancé and partner-in-crime, she knows it’s time to quit abusing heroin. Severely impaired from shooting a bad batch of black tar heroin, and already partially blind from the infection that the muddy poison has caused, she is forced to hitch a greyhound bus to New York City, and to abandon her care-free, American-bohemian, drug infested life-style.
Hailed everywhere as a beautiful, unique, honest, raw and poetic account of recovery, Addictarium takes readers on a compelling journey through the life and eyes of the narrator; a creative, nomadic, deep–but, incidentally broken–young woman, and underlines the contributing factors to what it’s really like to suffer from addiction. With magnificent candor–and sometimes emotionally crippling descriptions–we witness Danielle’s fight towards recovery from more than just heroin, as Addictarium brings the readers on a fascinating and harrowing, brutal tale of a young women’s recovery from total and mass self-destruction.
–Addictarium highlights in the starkest of lights, why it is so difficult for addicts to receive the recovery they seek, when they finally do decide to put the drug down.
