For those of you who follow my writing, this book may come as a bit of a shock to you. Most of my books fall into the “Christian living” category. Pandora’s Doom is written with a Christian worldview, but is not overtly Christian. I wanted to focus on telling a compelling story that helps people think about important issues.
The Bible is full of stories of uncomfortably real people facing issues that make us squirm. In that rich and telling vein, Pandora’s Doom is gritty, often disturbing, and sometimes violent. It explores the dark intersection of technology and human nature through very human and relatable characters. I think I’ve succeeded. I love the story, and I hope you will, too.
The log-line I’m working with:
Brenden Fouth and his WebForge team have witnessed the greatest technological breakthrough in human history: the creation of the first fully sentient Artificial Intelligence. When this entity breaks free of the confines of their lab into the web, Brenden and his team must join forces with the NSA to battle an enemy with the power to bring every person on earth to their knees and press them to face the demons of their own flawed humanity along the way.
I’ll keep you in the loop as the book develops. As we speak the second draft is in the hands of Beta readers all set to give me helpful feedback. My first reader said he could see it becoming a movie, which is awesome—but just want to see the thing in print first. When the time comes, I’d love your help in spreading the word, writing reviews on Amazon, etc.
Man am I excited about this project! I’d love to hear your thoughts, so comment below:
