Doing a podcast! Excited to talk about my book, the series, and how I got here.
I’ve just released my new short story entitled “Planet Towner.” Should be out in a few days depending on how long it takes for kdp to release it. It’s a story that’s close and dear to my heart.
I’ll keep everyone posted on when it’s released.
My book is finally released! I’m both excited and nervous at the same time. It has been quite the process to get it out. I had to re-upload it a few times after seeing formatting errors. In the end, I learned a few things I needed to know anyway. Not a problem.
There’s a link at the top of this blog about the book, but I don’t want to give away too much.
I’ll be released a short story in soon about one of the characters for free very soon and working on my mailing list.
Thanks again for your support.
When I first heard that David Lagercrantz was writing a new installment in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” series, I was skeptical, to say the least. My biggest fear was that Mr. Lagercranz was going to ruin Salander’s and Blomkvist’s character, but he added instead much-needed depth to their characters.
The book starts with Frans Balder, a computer scientist returning to Sweden after abandoning a job at Silicon Valley. He is warned by many organizations about an elite criminal group simply known as the “Spider’s Web”. He chooses to avoid their warnings and instead decides to focus on his autistic son, August.
Meanwhile, Blomkvist is stuck in a rut due to the fact that he hasn’t had good news stories to report about since his news story about the Salander scandal. He is contacted by a former worker of the Millennium newspaper informing him that he has an excellent news story for Blomkvist to have a major comeback. Blomkvist listens to the story until he hears of Salander’s involvement with a computer scientist known as Frans Balder. This leads him to a conspiracy involving the NSA, quantum computing, Salander’s twin sister, and artificial intelligence.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone that has either read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo or has an interest in computers and hacking. My only complaint is the use of idioms in this book. Young readers, or readers not familiar with these types of terms, might have to look them up on the internet, IE the deep web and the difference between a white and black hat hacker.
