Prometheus, A New Dawn . Part 26 . Eoin squinted, letting his eyes refocus. The lantern gave off a bright clean light that spread in a three meter diameter around them, but the enormous height and width of the space meant they only pierced a fraction of the darkness. Releasing his arm from Ally’s back he walked to the left side, peering at the curved wall. With a sweep of his arm, following the curve, he realized that the tunnel was a proper circle, the same as the hole they’d fallen through. Giving more weight to his original hypothesis, but the mesh… Unless the mesh was to keep all that junk out, he thought suddenly, remembering how much leaf and soil matter had poured down with them. Still, it hadn’t blocked everything. The floor beneath their feet was dirt packed, and vines trailed in as far as the sparse sunlight reached. Reaching the wall, he extended a hand and stroked it, then held the lantern up. Ally moved quietly behind him, making the most of her advanced night vision. ‘Ally, I think this might be A.D.’ The words sounded doubtful, how many structures from the age before this age, Quom Epidemia, were found in such condition? But the longer and closer he examined the wall, the more the idea made sense. Cool and smooth, the metal walls appeared seamless, but Eoin knew that couldn’t have been possible. He’d not seen so much metal in one place before. Usually they were scavenged centuries, millennia ago, to help rebuild. Stepping back to study the wall again, Eoin turned, peering at the entrance way. The slightest indent caught his eye. . To be continued in Part 27 . This is a work of fiction first e-published in 2016 and is available for purchase #linkinbio . #PrometheusANewDawn #readersofig #evolution #readingisfundamental #readabook #bookishglee #futurism #currentreads #wattpadbooks #sciencefictionbooks #scifinovel #scifiworld #dystopian #writersnetwork #novels #writersonig #scifibooks #livetoread #lovebooks
Finally getting around to finishing The Handmaid's Tale @therealmargaretatwood . Tried to read it when I was pregnant with my son and couldn't do it. Anyone else have a suggestion for books that messed them up?? This one blows my mind. Published in the 80s but the steps taken that led to the oppression could totally work now. Still have to watch the series (don't judge, I always read the book first). #bibliophile #handmaidstale #margaretatwood #bookobsessed #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookworm #booksbooksbooks #booknerd #booknerdigans #bookaddict #dystopian #fictionbooks #bookpublishing #scififantasy #scifi #amreading #amreadingdystopian
Don’t let fear keep you in a bad place. . . . Hey everybody! Hope the weekend is treating you well. I mentioned in my last post that I might do a bookish post before I got to my archery shot. I was thinking about what book to feature and, very hesitantly, decided to post an excerpt from one of my books for the first time. This is from chapter 3 of Buried in the Sand. . . . . #book #bookstagram #bookish #writing #writingcommunity #writer #writersofinstagram #booknerd #read #reading #readmore #write #writerslife #workinprogress #writingtime #writeitdown #writeitout #fantasy #scififantasy #fantasybooks #femaleprotagonist #dystopian #fearless #goals #progress
Taxed from @jharveywrc - Did you know the city of #Orlando is testing REAL TIME PREDICTIVE #facial #recognition programs? Remember the movie Minority Report? #SurveillanceCity #Rekognition “Every person who passes in front of a camera is scanned, regardless of prior suspicion of a crime. And multiple studies have shown facial recognition systems make mistakes – particularly on dark-skinned women. Misidentification could lead to innocent people being wrongfully detained by police for crimes they didn't commit, or worse, trigger confusion that leads to a deadly encounter” "We're basically talking about attaching artificial #intelligence to #surveillance cameras," says Jay Stanley, a senior policy analyst with the #ACLU Speech, Privacy and Technology Project. "As the AI gets better and better, it will allow individuals to be monitored in more intrusive and accurate ways, and that has the potential to create real, chilling effects on our #society . How would you feel driving home with a police car behind you? I don't want to feel that way all the time." Facial-attribute software is more predictive, spotting clues to build a digital picture of a person's mood in order to anticipate their actions. An angry face could lead to hostility, while a happy face wouldn't. #Privacy advocates, meanwhile, worry about it becoming a slippery slope into a #dystopian world of #government surveillance. "Everybody is a suspect. If facial recognition is becoming a new norm in the way Orlando is talking about, then we should all be very afraid." "We don't have to wait to find out how these technologies will be used," #Amazon employees wrote in an internal letter. "We already know that in the midst of historic #militarization of police, renewed targeting of Black #activists , and the growth of a federal deportation force currently engaged in human rights abuses – this will be another powerful tool for the surveillance state, and ultimately serve to harm the most marginalized."#ExitTheMatrix

Happy Sunday everyone! So I'm finally starting to recover from my head cold and managed to get quite a bit of work done today 😊👍 . But Sunday eve calls for a good book review! My next review is on a novel that just took my breath away. It is one of those books that just had me in awe from start to finish: The Power by @naomi_alderman 💕 . Margaret Atwood called this book 'electrifying'. It was... Really! I actually stumbled upon this book as I had initially never heard of it. I fell in the love its cover and the fact that it won 2017 Women's Baileys Booker Prize. I was not disappointed! . I felt, quintessentially, very powerful to be feminine. Even though I don't and will never get to possess the powers some of the characters do, I felt proud to be a strong woman after reading this. . Quite simply, the central premise of this narrative is women who can emit powerful electrical jolts from their fingers, which in essence leads them to become the most powerful and dominant gender in the book. With multiple characters, you quite simply have a book within a book, within a book etc. In addition, you start with a manuscript of this fictional history, submitted by Neil Adam Armon to another author known simply as Naomi. These act as not just a prologue but an aftermath; written approximately 5000 years after the power has emerged... . We follow the historically fictional experiences of Allie, Roxy, Margot, Jocelyn, and Tunde, during a time where times have changed: Patriarchial has become matriarchial; the world is rapidly changing and evolving... . A lot of people have told me they couldn't finish the book. I must have been in the right mood to read it as I give it a really solid 🌟🌟🌟🌟 for it. Just like Atwood, I was transported, I was gripped, and I was electrified! . . #stephreviews #2019readingchallenge #fortheloveofbooks #books #bookstagram #bookobsessed #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bookreviewer #booksofinstagram #bookphotography #whatstephreads #obsessedwithreading #booksbooksbooks #dystopian #feministreading #whatstephwrites #bibliophile

Long needed post, FAVORITE books, to COMMEMORATE the Netflix release!!! I can’t believe this is happening WOW but I’m scared it won’t live up to my expectations like really scared or it’ll change the way I view and love the books. • Also—this weekend it my last before 7 weeks of hell!! Seriously I am SO busy with overnights or events every single weekend for the next two months—I’m excited though, but probably no time for reading😓. Sadly posts might be on pause as well. • Thoughts on Leigh’s Netflix deal? • SOTD: tidal wave by Portugal.

Corbière Lighthouse is a Jersey landmark. One of those places I will always recognise as a symbol of being home. First lit on 24th April 1874, the lighthouse would have been there in both #TheLunegossTales and #TheStolenGeneration although in Freddie’s time it would have fallen to ruin being on the west of the island. #jerseyauthor #authorlife #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #authorsofig #writersofig #writer #bookstagram #writerslife #author #writing #writersofinsta #ilovewriting #bookworm #writingcommunity #writerscorner #writers #writinginspiration #indieauthor #authorslife #authorsofinsta #scifi #books #bookish #lgbt #dystopian
Sunday is usually my lazy day but not today. I am heading out to meet up with a friend I haven't seen in a very long time. It's kind of crazy, but several old friends that I haven't seen in a while (like years) have been reaching out to me lately. Do you think the universe is trying to tell me something? . Have you had similar things happen to you? It's funny how things usually happen in clumps, right? Three or more. . . . . . . . .If you're interested in Blood Promise, you can grab through the link in my bio.

Charm once knew him as Jordan, the Templar Knight for whom she fell from grace.  Now, he has come back into her life as the warlock Malcolm, and he has no idea about his past life or his connection to the fallen angel, Charmeine. . . . . . . . . #amediting #amwriting #author #authorslife #writerslife #writersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #iwriteya #yaauthors #paranormal #dystopian #book #ebook #booksbooksbooks #booklion #booknerd #bookdragon #bibliophile #reader #amreading #bookworm #writer #booknerdigan #igauthors #instabook #igreads #yaauthorsofinstagram #ireadya
You watched the image come together below. Now meet the heroine of our story. Charmeine became 'fallen' in 1185 when she fell in love with a human, a Templar Knight named Jordan. Although this is backstory, tidbits of this part of her life will soon be available as bonus content. I am currently working all the notes my editor sent over.

(Painting idea)-something I’ve been toying with is the language of differences between shapes and objects. I’ve been looking at the shadows and the temperatures of colors. -toying with the idea of a fluid brush mark on top of imagery.

This painting did not turn out right. I post it as a warning for the next generation. The paint was temperamental, and it cracked. The image is about a dystopian future, but it looks like a garage door. #dystopian #garagedoor

Another five star read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ . I really loved this spin off! It was fantastic to see more of the Rule of Three world, and the book kept me turning page after page! . . Emma’s character was a great protagonist! 😁I wasn’t sure about her at the start, but she grew a lot to protect her family and community. . . I found the plot intriguing, and it was great to read about how the communities and people all interacted/were changed by the situation. . . I loved how this book connected to the Rule of Three characters at the end, it was a great contribution to the story! I’d love to see more about this world if there are any future, especially now with both communities and characters . . I highly recommend to any lovers of YA dystopian! 😁 . . .

QOTD? What book series do you want to finish this year??? 📚 * War Storm was a bit of a disappointment for me especially being that it is the last book of the series, the plot was everywhere, the characters weren't as interesting and the action was underwhelming. I still recommend picking up the series but sadly this book just wasn't the end I was looking for 😭😭😭 * #reading #books #book #ya #yabooks #youngadultbooks #read #reads #bookstagram #bookphotography #bookphoto #ausbookishfeatures #fantasy #dystopian #redqueen #warstorm #magic

Finished #sketch of enchantress and fortune teller Demetheria. She operated with some dangerous people back when Kaleb was getting into trouble. By the time she appears in the story few of you will remember what I've said about her.
On Monday and Tuesday (Jan 21-22) you can download Part-0ne: "The Journey Ends" for FREE!  Simply copy and paste this link in your browser:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MFRYJWL Or click the live ebook link on my profile. I've been burning the midnight oil working to finish Part-Two of "Learning Earth's Deathly History" by spring. Currently it's about 130,000 words. I hope to hand it over to my editor by the end of February, so he can do a line by line edit on it before sending it back to me. Then I will go through it once more making the changes he recommends before giving it back to him for final editing. After that I will publish it. In Part-One we see the massive Great Ships arrive at the New World before learning Earth was destroyed a thousand years ago.  We see the living cargo onboard the Great Ships including the human life-cells where our true forms rest while our cyber forms inhabit this virtual world built to teach us planetary history.  Dr. Deter gives us a taste of the virtual world technology that makes our fictitious universe possible telling us our cyber lives mirror physical existences perfectly-- that we are sentient beings.  Lastly, he informs us that we must all virtually learn Earth's Deathly History before we will be spiritually awakened. Only then will we see our factual bodies, the Great Ships and the New World. In Part-Two we will live Earth's Deathly History by virtually remaining here in the Early 21st century when humanity destroyed themselves in a nuclear World War.  Not only will we witness Armageddon, but we will suffer in the horrific aftermath for months beyound the nuclear apocalypse. In Part-Three we are finally awakened from the nightmare, and begin to deal with the mind blowing reality that we are indeed on wonderful starships on the other side of the Milky Way galaxy from Earth. We get to tour the Great Ships and see the incredible technology as we begin to heal from VWD (Virtual World Disorder). -Bill #apocalypse  #space  #singularity  #scifi #sciencefiction  #matrix  #wwiii  #postapocalyptic #physics  #science  #virtualreality  #virtuallearning #starships  #writers #scifibooks #scifiwriter #dystopian
Repost from @kmrobinsonbooks using @RepostRegramApp - Who’s your fav villain? Out of all my baddies, Commander Diamond from Jaded has been fan voted as the worst...and he recently did a villain interview with @henchmantraining to talk about some of the lessons he’s learned along the way.

After the insane last few weeks that I've had I needed a new physical, paper, hold in my hand - book. So before we left the cities yesterday I grabbed one. 📚 I've wanted to read this for a while because it's one of the few YA dystopians these days that has a guy as one of it's main characters. Always looking for more guys as main characters! I like what I've read by Neal Shusterman in the past so hopefully this will be good too! 💜 #NealShusterman #Unwind #MaleProtagonist #Dystopian #NewBook #BookHaul #Series #Bookstagram #Books #Book #Read #Reading #Bibliotheque #Bibliophile #BookLover #eBook #eBooks #LoveToRead #Reader #BooksAreMagic #InstaBooks #BookRecommendations #BookCover #Wood
