Tokyo 2034 A.D. A drunk banker named J. A rising star named Sana. PLAs. Crime. Terrorism. The Wharf is free again!

[The Wharf] now available on Amazon Kindle Store for Mac, PC, Android, iPad, iPhone, etc.!

My first completed work of fiction, which I penned with best friend and partner-in-crime Jesse Bull, is now for sale on Amazon.com.

Here’s a brief product description:

“Tokyo, 2034 A.D. Japan has finally relaxed her borders to allow an overdue influx of immigration, and with it subsequent street crime and true multilingual diversity. The world’s first transition to an entirely cashless banking system has created a society completely reliant on the Personal Life Assistant™, or PLA, a mobile device that acts as phone, wallet, keys, identification and more. Over the course of roughly one week a story of technological security, financial terrorism and socioeconomic upheaval unfolds around a small cast of characters, including J., an American banker, Sana, a female television personality, and Shade, an underground tech kingpin shrouded in mystery. The Wharf is a subversive, parodical black comedy and also a classic crime novel penned by two Americans with a combined twelve years’ experience working, studying and living in Japan.”

[The Wharf] is available for purchase for $2.99 for your PC, tablet, smart phone, etc. here.

Well, you can’t judge a film by its cover (the darkly stellar Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead springs to mind), and in the case of No Strings Attached, this lighthearted rom-com, with its strong cast and interesting characters, is good for a few laughs, while avoiding the common pitfalls of this genre–well, some, at least.
