I have news. I am now a published author.

 

Note: this is NOT Trek.

 

It is a for real book, being sold on the publisher's site and Smashwords (I imagine it'll end up on Amazon soon, as well). The ISBN is: 9781626011298 for those who are interested in such things.

 

It is a thrill and an honor. I thank all of you for your support over the years! And now onto the book itself:

Winner of the first Annual Riverdale Avenue NaNoWriMo contest, JR Gershen-Siegel’s first published novel Untrustworthy is a ground-breaking science fiction novel of Dystopian politics in an oddly familiar alien culture that pits gender "norm” against  gender-bend in an age-old battle.

 

"Untrustworthy is old-school political dystopia in the vein of Brave New World: brilliant, gripping, frightening. JR Gershen-Siegel tackles gender politics and gender oppression with an unflinching eye. Untrustworthy is panned NaNoWriMo gold." 

 

Cecilia Tan, Publisher of Circlet Press,award-winning author of The Struck by Lightning series

 

 

Tathrelle is the only liberal in the Cabossian government. She represents the will of the people and is responsible for communicating with them about how the war with the Cavirii is going. She has a pregnant wife, and all seems well. The future seems promising, until she meets her new assistant. Something is off with the man.

 

When Tathrelle wakes up the morning after she first met him, she notices that subtle changes seem to have taken place overnight. She shrugs them off. 

 

But it happens again and again. Someone, somehow, is changing everything she knows, as Tathrelle begins to wonder if her memories are faulty or if her mind is going. Can she trust the face she sees in the mirror? Is Caboss winning the war or losing it? Why is she suddenly the one who is pregnant?

Only her dreams provide a clue, a small vestige of what came before.

 

Trust your dreams, not your memory.

========================================

Thank you again for your kind support.
