Toasting Technology

I like technology … when it works.

Living in an internet-challenged domain has given me a perspective most other people probably think about only in theoretical terms. In the civilized world, citizens pop online to look up information.  They pay for purchases with the punch of a button.  They let their cars tell them where to go.

And then – zap – a storm or power outage or fried chip causes those conveniences to crash.  People who have only ever known the latest technology suddenly can’t find out about something they can’t even pay for, much less know how to get there.  Luckily these electronic face-plants have been few and limited, but you got to admit, when you get caught in one it’s aggravating.

So I raise a toast to technology – until it gets toasted. And while we’re on the topic of the digital realm, you’re welcome to take a peek at my About page and check out the couple of videos I’ve put out in reference to Equal Access. I’m deeply grateful to the people more talented than I at stringing together pictures and music.  It was good practice though … now I’m working on a trailer for the next book to come out.

What’s the new one about? Well, this entry is a hint to a major event that takes place in the story.  Yes, I’m going to be coy for now, but as the publication date gets closer there will be plenty more to be said about the latest novel that will come out this spring.
