Complete Atopia Chronicles, all six books for $0.99, Aug 11,12
In the story, Dr. Patricia Killiam is rushing to help save the world from itself by giving everyone everything they've always wanted. The question is whether she's unwittingly saving the world only to cast it towards an even worse fate as humanity hurtles across the brink of forever.
Blue Skies is the first novella of Atopia, a near future world without borders that teeters on the brink of post-humanism and eco-Armageddon. Atopia is unique as it brings to life many of the objects and characters in the book as an experiment in "real life" augmented reality. The PhutureNews.com futuring portal, a key element in the series of books, is a real website that readers can visit. As well, many of the characters are brought to life, with their own LinkedIn and Facebook pages. See if you can find them out there!
