As I mentioned in my last post, all four books of The Modest Proposal Institute are now on Amazon in ebook and paperback versions. The boxset, which you can buy on pre-order right here, will join them very soon and that will bring a close to the first series of this project. The second series will have our ‘heroes’ out in the universe away from Earth’s heavy gravity and as light as stardust. All that, however, must wait.
While I give the concerns of the Earth and the human race some time off, I’ll be working on a cozy mystery set in 1950’s England when the shadow of the Second World War still cast a darkness over the land and the Korean War was doing nothing to brighten it. For those of you who like science fiction and mysteries, keep your eyes peeled for my new book (as yet it doesn’t even have a working title) when it comes out later this year. Meanwhile, make your way over to my Amazon Author Page for my books that are already there.
Here’s a sneak peak of An Old Path to a New Future‘s cover. Our two ‘heroes’ take decidedly different routes to the future, as I hope the cover shows. I’m not giving any of the story away so you’ll have to read it to learn more lol.
Thanks for joining me here at The Modest Proposal Institute website where I’ll be supporting all things to do with my soon-to-be-published first book of a series, as well as anything from the world of science and technology that lends itself to what I’m writing about.
What am I writing about? Well, in case you hadn’t noticed, the world we’ve all enjoyed these past few decades is coming apart at the seams. Everyone has their own idea how to fix that and I’m no exception. The Modest Proposal Institute is a fictional story about a billionaire and a retired engineer who decide it’s time to go back to where they believe the Western world went off the rails. They start an offshore boys school and university where they think a better future can be created than the one they see coming.
The first book in the series, An Old Path to a New Future, will be published on Amazon in early November. I hope you’ll be part of the journey to the moon, the planets, and to the depths of the oceans here on Earth.
