So I posted above about my book coming out...

I'm trying to read the tea leaves, and I may be wrong, but I just don't think now is the best time for an economic disaster novel. I'm going to sit on it and work on another less socioeconomic dependent creative project.

And, well, collect guns and shoot them in my spare time.

I just think there are events on the horizon that will make the book more popular/marketable. One of the issues with near-future fiction is it has a shelf life. Once you pass that setting in the book, it's now alternate history and not nearly as enjoyable. You can set dates with speculative fiction and even when passed they can remain enjoyable (1984, 2001: Space Odyssey, etc).

So the trick is, don't pin your book to a specific fork in the near future. I'm still working on that.

D J Molles has another installment of "The Remaining" series out and a trilogy called "District 89: A Grower's War" (not weed).

First two books of the Grower's War are somewhat slow, as everybody is suffering under an occupation and hostilities are only starting to brew (kind of like WA is?) but now into the third book and things are hopping.
