I’m very excited to share something with you today.
I have a novel coming out on April 7, the first of two (!) this year. It’s a near future science-fiction story, called Echoes of Another. Here’s the cover:
Here’s the plot:
In the groove. In the zone. A period of intense focus and high performance that feels effortless. Flow. In a near future Toronto, a naïve young scientist named Kel invents a device to produce the mysterious state of ‘flow’ on demand, hoping to unleash humanity’s creative potential on our greatest problems. But the prototype she invents to record and then play back the neurological and physiological states associated with flow can be used to record other mind-body states. Her prototype is stolen, duplicated, and put to use for an astonishing range of causes, some good, and some very bad. As Kel struggles to regain control of her device, it threatens to destroy her legacy and upend the lives of several others, until all uses of the technology converge on the most unexpected and unintended consequence of all.
It is available for pre-order right now as a Kindle ebook, and as a paperback.
I’d love it if you’d share this post on Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media, or email it directly to any friends you think would like this book. Especially if you happen to know any book reviewers!
And now for some Citizen Science Center news. As you may have guessed by the book announcement above, I have a number of other projects on the go these days, and I think the time has come to wind this blog down.
I’ve been publishing Citizen Science Center since 2012 (!!!), and I have thoroughly enjoyed spreading the word about dozens of fabulous and important projects. The movement is strong and widespread now, and frankly more important than ever, given the climate change challenges we face. I’m proud of the role I played in getting citizen science into the mainstream, and I want to thank you all for your support of this blog and its related social media.
I’ll be leaving this blog up for posterity for a while, and I may look into archiving it somewhere. Meanwhile, if you’d like to stay in touch with me personally, please do join me on my personal blog mailing list: http://www.chandrakclarke.com/subscribe/
Thanks again, and stay awesome,
