For a reading November 24th Tuesday at 1pm slt.
Owl (yeah me) will read a glimpse of one of R. Jacques short stories.
Here is an intro to the Reading event:
This scene takes place in a short story called, “Sinatra In A Younger Day” which transpires in the futuristic virtual world of Simvie Loko circa 2500 AD. The main character, Delano Rose is a digital actor who has full autonomy and primarily resides in the physical world as a hologram. He’s eager to revitalize his career so his agent has possibly found him work in Angel City, a mid-20th century local located in Simvie Loko. Mr. Rose has chosen to depict himself as a Frank Sinatra tribute act and the scene read by Owl depicts his arrival.”
Do come Tuesday at 1pm sharp Second Life The to hear this reading!
“500 years in the future, the peaceful virtual world of Simvie Loko becomes the battleground between two opposing forces: The seemingly benevolent, world ruling
AI, Gaiana, and its human opponents who seek more personal freedom. Caught in the middle is the sentient AI NPC, GoSpeed Rasere, who exists only to serve her human visitors. If Gaiana prevails, she and her fellow NPCs face extinction. “
Rasere’s War was the first novel R. Jacques (GoSpeed) published and wow I can tell you it is a great read. It kept me up 2 nights in a row as I needed to know what was happening next. GoSpeed has an easy cadence to her writing the story is well developed and leaves you wanting more. I thoroughly enjoyed Rasere’s War and was quite happy it didn’t end there and there was more.
