I’m honored to announce my science fiction debut, Imminent Dawn, has been selected as a finalist in the 2020 International Book Awards.
Jeffrey Keen, President and CEO of American Book Fest, said this year’s contest yielded over 2,000 entries from authors and publishers around the world, which were then narrowed down to the final results.
Keen says of the awards, “The 2020 results represent a phenomenal mix of books from a wide array of publishers throughout the world.”
Imminent Dawn is the story of art-school dropout Chandra, a woman who would do anything to apologize for her role in her wife’s coma—including enroll in the first round of human trials for an internet-access brain implant.
It also follows the story of ruthless tech magnate, Wyatt Halman; relentless investigative journalist, Meredith Maxwell; and advancement-hungry administrative assistant, Ariel Commons.
Forced to confront conspiracies stretching from the highest levels of the North American Union government to the lowest dredges of its shadowy hacking collectives, all four characters are set on a collision course that leaves them fighting to reclaim that which they value most: their loved ones, their freedom, their lives.
New York Times bestselling author Matt Forbeck has hailed Imminent Dawn as “an incisive techno-thriller that gets more tense with every page,” and, upon its release, Imminent Dawn debuted at number one for its genre on Amazon.
You can order Imminent Dawn through your local bookseller or find it on Amazon or via its publisher, NineStar Press. The book, which is the first in the EMPATHY sci-fi saga, is available in both ebook and print.
