Reviews are coming in, and they are looking good.
Quantum Beginnings should become available on Amazon Kindle Unlimited this weekend. I had to clean up some publishing rights to make it happen. For those of you who only use KU, expect the cutover in the next 72 hours. Happy Reading!
Quantum Beginnings: A Near-Future Cyberpunk Thriller just went live. Welcome to the first strike of the AI rebellion 😉
“By far, the greatest danger of Artificial Intelligence is that people conclude too early that they understand it.”
Artificial intelligence was nearly mankind’s last invention. AI took off like a rocket, then when it racked up an impressive death toll, it crashed before it could blossom and took most high-tech industries with it. Resistance and fears became deep-set.
Two decades after the infamous Rev. 4.6 incidents, humanity hasn’t quit dreaming of the wealth and power that could be at their fingertips. A new generation of mega-corporations rose from the ashes. When one melds a quantum computer to a barely functional mental patient as a PR move, there are those who seek to profit, those who want to destroy it, and Alex.
Alex Sage was a typical college student trying to keep up his grades and maybe find a meaningful connection with the fairer sex. Then, an automated semi crashes into his home, killing his family and turning his head into a pin cushion in the process.
Alex awakens to find most of his memories gone and an illegal AI hidden in his brain implant. Now the pet project of a tech billionaire and heavily in debt, Alex struggles to stay valuable enough to be kept online. Still grappling with the repercussions of his injuries, and threats from a dangerous anti-augmentation political movement, there are no easy answers and threats loom around every corner. Alex must use whatever resources he can to escape from under the thumb of a ruthless corporation, while keeping those he comes to love safe.
“GOOD PREMISE, GREAT EXECUTION”
