The Year 2117: A Tour

 

I’ve always been obsessed with the future. I’m probably the only person on earth who loved Back to the Future Part 2 better than the other two movies. For the sole purpose that it takes place in the future (which by the way was the year 2015…so, um, now.) Flying cars, hoverboards, jackets that dry themselves. Sure, we have all of those things, right?

 

But I digress.

 

When I set out to write UNCHANGED, the final book in the Unremembered trilogy, which takes place in the year 2117, Iknew I’d have to do a lot of research on what we’re expecting the future to look like. Now, normally I loathe doing research. But this particular research was actually super fun. I relied heavily on futurist predictions and books like Physics of the Future by Michio Kaku. This book actually outlines what scientists believe the future will look like in 20 years, 50 years, and 100 years. That combined with a few other sources and mywild and crazy imagination brought me to the 2117 of UNCHANGED. 

 

And now I shall pass you over to Klo, a resident of the year 2117, and a new character in Unchanged, who shall guide you through this fascinating time period…

 

##

 

Welcome to the future! My name is Klo and I’ll be your official tour guide to the year 2117!

 

Here in the 22nd century, things are pretty high-tech and life has been made very easy for humans. 

 

Transportation:

 

We stopped driving those automobile things a while back when all the oil dried up, but now we have much more fuel-efficient means of transport. The masses drive something called a MagCar (which operates on magnets instead of gas). Although “drive” is a fairly misleading term as MagCars actually pilot themselves. You just sit back and enjoy the ride. 

 

Those with a little extra dough in their bank accounts travel by air in things called HoverCopters. They’re about the size of a car, but they fly. They’re great for getting from one end of town to the other, but they’re not super speedy. So for longer distances, everyone pretty much travels by HyperLoop.

 

The idea for the HyperLoop was actually first announced by Elon Musk, the creator of Tesla. Hey, he’s from your century! 

 

The HyperLoop is a high-speed transportation system in whichpressurized capsules ride on a cushion of air through vaccum-sealed tubes that stand hundreds of feet in the air (like old-fashion aqueducts). It took a while for them to build the infrastructure, but now we have HyperLoop tubes running between every major city in the country. And we can get from Los Angeles to San Francisco in only 30 minutes. 

 

 

 

Computing:

 

Gone are the days when you have to lug around heavy laptops and computers. Almost everything you need to do is either done on your DigiSlate (a tablet-like device that’s paper-thin and can roll up or fold into any shape for easy carrying) or through your DigiLenses (contact lenses that project information right onto your vision.) I’ve heard you have something kind of similar called Google Glass? Except from the pictures I’ve seen, they’re pretty bulky and make you look pretty stupid. DigiLenses sit right on your eye so they’re virtually invisible. You could totally be looking at pictures of naked chicks in class while your teacher thinks you’re paying attention. Not that I do that. 

 

Food:

 

About seven years ago, a crazy disease called Bovine Liver Disease (or BLD) swept through the nation and killed a majority of the cattle. The ones that did survive no one wanted to eat for fear of getting sick. That’s when Synthetic Meat was first released into the market. It sounds weird but it actually tastes just like the real stuff. It’s made in a lab from repurposed molecules. Pretty cool, right? Now we can have our beef and pork and lamb and no little cute animals have to suffer the consequences. I will say, though, it’s pretty rare to see a cow around these days. Most people my age don’t even know what they look like. 

 

 

 

Health/Medical:

 

So, I’ve watched a few archived episodes of some of your old-time TV shows and I have to say, Grey’s Anatomy is hands-down my favorite. I’m fascinated by all the procedures and surgeries they perform. Did they really used to slice people open and then sew them back together? YUCK! How morbid. And backward!

 

Today, everyone is outfitted from birth with a set of NanoSensors. They’re tiny microscopic robots that live in your blood stream and transmit information back to your DigiSlate or DigiLens about your health. Both you and your doctor get a warning alert if anything is amiss. Disease, high blood pressure, clotting, cancerous cells, poor nutrition, they’re all detected way before it’s ever an issue. And if surgery is needed, the doctors just send nanobots into your body to perform the procedures and pioneer them from outside. 

 

Also, childbirth has become a lot less…well, messy. Most parents now opt for using an artificial womb. The parents provide the genetic material and the womb gestates the baby right in your home. I’ve heard rumors that back in the old days, women used to have to watch what they ate and drank when they were pregnant and couldn’t travel far from their homes in risk of having the baby early. Wow, that’s inconvenient. Now parents do whatever the glitch they want while the baby gestatesin their kitchen. Then on the due date, POP! Out the baby comes. No pain, no mess, no unexpected premature labor. I’m still a little young to be worried about that though. I can barely get a girl to go out with me, let alone want to gestate a baby with me. 

 

 

Recreation:

 

Sure football and baseball still exist, but it’s more of an old person sport. For my generation, it’s all about the MagBall. It’s kind of a football meets soccer meets air hockey. The oblong-shaped ball is suspended in the air by use of magnets while the teams try to score against their opponents’ goal. It’s super intense. 

 

Also, Rec Hubs have started sprouting up all over the place. They’re like virtual arcades. Except instead of the arcade gamesyou’re used to, everything takes place in giant hovering spheres that you stand inside. The spheres project a virtual reality all around you and respond to your body’s movement. When you run, they spin beneath your feet. When you jump, or kick, or turn, the projection shifts to keep up. There’s a program for pretty much everything. Roman Gladiators, Ninja Assassins, The Civil War. And every program makes you feel like you’re right there, inside the world. Total immersion. There’s a game called Ghost Hunters that I pretty much kick ass at, if I do say so myself. 

 

 

Fashion:

 

Well, being that I’m a hacker, I’m not really one to speak about fashion. You’d be much better off downloading a fashion stream to your DigiSlate to find out more about what’s all the rage these days. But I have noticed a huge insurgence of Nanostitching on clothes. That’s computerized fabric that can change color and pattern at any time. So if you buy a dress and get sick of the color or pattern, you can just change it. Or if you buy a cap with your favorite MagBall team on it and they lose, because they’re big fat pointless losers, you can easily reprogram the cap to show the winning team’s logo instead. Because you’re just that mad. 

 

Also, it seems like everyone is getting Nanotats now. I mean, they were cool when they first came out, but now I’m just getting a little tired of them. Nanotats are programmable imprints for your skin. You can program them to play any image or looping feed that you want. I had one on my arm for a while that played my favorite scene from my favorite movie on repeat, but after a few days of staring at that, even got sick of seeing it. The good part, I guess, is that when you do get sick of your Nanotat, you can always preprogram it to display something else. I’ve seen people around who have their whole body covered in Nanotats, which personally just makes me really dizzy.

 

 

Well, there’s tons more to see in 2117 but I think I’ll leave a few things as a surprise. After all, no one should know too much about their future….

WHEN MY HEART WAS WICKED Blog Tour: Interview + Giveaway


Today I am honored to be a part of the WHEN MY HEART WAS WICKED blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours.  I not only found the writing in this novel to be beautiful and exquisite but I also enjoyed reading up on a novel that was set in familiar territory.

Title: WHEN MY HEART WAS WICKED
Author: Tricia Stirling
Pub. Date: February 24, 2015
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Pages: 192
Formats: Hardcover, eBook
"I used to be one of those girls. The kind who loved to deliver bad news. When I colored my hair, I imagined it seeping into my scalp, black dye pooling into my veins.

But that was the old Lacy. Now, when I cast spells, they are always for good."

16-year-old Lacy believes that magic and science can work side by side. She's a botanist who knows how to harness the healing power of plants. So when her father dies, Lacy tries to stay with her step-mother in Chico, where her magic is good and healing. She fears the darkness that her real mother, Cheyenne, brings out, stripping away everything that is light and kind.

Yet Cheyenne never stays away for long. Beautiful, bewitching, unstable Cheyenne who will stop at nothing, not even black magic, to keep control of her daughter's heart. She forces Lacy to accompany her to Sacramento, and before long, the "old" Lacy starts to resurface.

But when Lacy survives a traumatic encounter, she finds herself faced with a choice. Will she use her powers to exact revenge and spiral into the darkness forever? Or will she find the strength to embrace the light?

About Tricia:
I am a writer. I am also a mother, daughter, wife, sometimes crafter, and voracious reader. I'm outdoorsy and kind of shy. As a child, I was kicked out of girlscouts. I love cheese and bread. I love Anthopologie and Mary Margaret's apartment in Once Upon a Time.  I'm a sloppy dogloving person, but I admire the sleek cool of cats. My favorite writers include Alice Hoffman, Janet Fitch, Donna Tarte, and Aimee Bender. Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were also good.


Hello all and welcome. Today I'm very lucky to be interviewing Tricia Stirling, author of When My Heart Is Wicked.

1. Hello Tricia, thank you for this interview. Can you tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Thank youWell I’ve always written, but I didn’t always want to be a “writer.” I worked as a barista, a secretary at a law firm, a hostess. Through it all though, I wrote. I went to grad school, I wrote. I had babies, I wrote. I am lucky that my husband is understanding and encouraging about my writing. I wrote a lot of short stories and three novels. But I never tried to sell the first two novels. I knew they were my “learning how to write” books. 

2.  What is When My Heart Was Wicked about and what inspired you to write it? When My Heart Was Wicked is about a girl, Lacy, who was brought up to protect herself using black magic and dark curses. The magic made her dark inside and she grew to hate everything, including herself. When her mother disappeared, Lacy went to live with her father, and she decided to reinvent herself, successfully. The book begins after her father dies, and her mother returns, wanting Lacy back
I was thinking about butterflies, transformation, reinventionAnd also step-families. Early on I was thinking of writing the story from Anna’s point of view, this woman who loses her husband and gains an unhappy teenager. But as I wrote, I realized it was  Lacy’s story I wanted to tell. 

3.  Can you give us an insight into your main character, Lacy and how you relate to her?
Oh, sweet Lacy. She is torn between the knowledge that her mother is a terrible parent, ultimately bad for her, and the connection she feels toward her. She loves her mother. I think Lacy is a good person, even when she thinks she isn’t. Also I think she’s a fairly typical teenager, in that everything is truncated, every moment infused with meaning. And then there’s the whole self-loathing thing. I know I had a whole lot of that going on when I was in high school. 

4.  What is your favorite quote from the book? I really love the beginning, the first 2 paragraphs: 
My stepmother, Anna, swears magic exists in the everyday. I used to think she was full of it, but then one morning at Big Chico Creek we found a mermaid’s eye under a patch of birds-foot trefoil. The eye was large and perfectly round like a human’s, but it had the glittering green iris of a fish. After that I started noticing magic in other places too. A swan serenading a catfish at Horseshoe Lake, her neck arching like a quivering bow in song. A boy with the legs of a goat playing the flute from his canoe along the river.  
Since my dad died, though, I haven’t spotted a single bit of magic. Not even a shooting star, or the quiet unfurling of afiddlehead fern frond at dawn.”


5.  Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
That you can become the person you want to be, especially when you’re youngI wanted to write about a girl who struggles between two dualities within her nature, each of which isequally tempting. And then what happens when her tools are stripped away. I love the ideas of fate and destiny—they are so romantic. But I don’t believe in them. I believe we make our own destiny. 

6. How can readers discover more about you and your work?
I have a website at triciastirling.com. The website has a blog feature, which I’ve just begun posting to. I have a few short stories that you can find online. I’m also on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest

7. Your writing style is very beautiful, poetic and infused with symbolism. When did you decided to become an author? 
Thank you! I was in college when I decided to become an author. In grad school I became kind of obsessed with the fluidity of language. I started collecting words and playing with them, trying to find ways to stack them together and make them sing. Carole Maso has some lovely things to say about Language. “Home is wherever my mind catches fire, my body. Where Language trembles and burns.”And “I love my language. I feel at home in my throat in the fluent afternoon.” 

8.  What writers inspire you? Alice Hoffman. Ellen Gilchrist.Janet Fitch, Laurie Halse Anderson, Francesca Lia Block, Jim Lewis, Raymond Carver, Aimee Bender, Carole Maso, Hemingway. Honestly, I won’t finish reading a book if it doesn’t inspire me in some way. 

9.  What are you reading right now?
I’m reading Incantation by Alice Hoffman, The Good Sister by Jamie Kain, The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury, Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott, and All We Left Behind by Nancy Herman. I’m very ADD with my reading. 

10. What are you working on now and can you share that with me?
I’m working on a YA novel about a girl who is afraid of water. I don’t want to say too much about it, but it’s grittier than When My Heart Was Wicked. It’s more street urchin meets Sylvia Plath. 

11. Living in northern California I am always drawn to novels in this area. What made you decide to write a novel based out of Chico and Sacramento?
Chico is a magical place. I went to college there, and it was such a fun place to live and explore. Whenever I talk to other people who spent time in Chico, their voice fills with this blissful longing. “Aah, Chico.” Sacramento is my home. I grew up in Southern California, and I was surprised the other day when I realized that I’ve lived in Sacramento longer than any other town. It is the only home my children know. I don’t think I’ll live here forever, but Sacramento will always hold a special place in my heart. 


These two images below are taken in Chico and the place pictured is mentioned in the book

ApollyCon Featured Author: Rachel Hollis

About the Author

Rachel Hollis founded the LA-based event planning firm Chic Events at only 21. Six years later Inc. Magazine named her one of the Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30. She went on to turn Chic into the extremely popular lifestyle website The Chic where readers log in daily for the tips and tricks she acquired after years of planning fancy parties for celebrities!

She has designed and produced fabulous events for many of Hollywood's elite including Bradley Cooper, Al Gore, Rashida Jones, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ivanka Trump, Jamie King, Sara Rue and Cuba Gooding Jr… just a name a few.

Rachel grew up in a big loud Okie family. Daddy was a Pentecostal minister and Mama was the church pianist… and PS, she knows the words to all the old-timey hymns in case you want to break into three-part harmony later.

She moved to Los Angeles to go to college and promptly met a boy named David who was as handsome as he was funny. First she made that boy her best friend, and then she made him my husband. 10 years later they have three equally handsome/hilarious little boys named Jackson, Sawyer, and Ford. They live in LA where they spend their time doing super cool/sexy things like going to soccer practice and hitting up any restaurant where kids eat free with the purchase of an adult entrée.



Recent Release


Landon Brinkley’s dreams are all coming true. She’s landed an internship with the fabulous Selah Smith, event planner for the Hollywood elite, taking her from small-town Texas to the bright lights of LA. Landon soon finds herself in a world in which spending a million dollars on an event—even a child’s birthday party—is de rigueur and the whims of celebrity clients are life-and-death matters. At first, the thrill of working on A-list parties and celebrity weddings is enough to get Landon through the seventy-five-hour workweeks and endless abuse at the hands of her mercurial boss. But when the reality of the business reveals itself, she’s forced to make a choice: do whatever it takes to get ahead, or stay true to herself.

Drawing on the author’s real-life experiences as an event planner to the stars, Party Girl takes readers on an adventure among Hollywood’s most beautiful—and most outrageous—people, revealing the ugly side of Hollywood’s prettiest parties.

 THE ETERNAL CITY
by Paula Morris

From master of suspense Paula Morris comes a tale of gods and goddesses, thrilling romance, and mystery set in present-day Rome.

Laura Martin is visiting Rome on a class trip, and she's entranced by the majestic Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon.... Everything in this city seems magical.

That is, until the magic seems to turn very dark.

Suddenly, statues of Cupid and ancient works of art come to life before her eyes. Earthquakes rumble and a cloud of ash forms in the sky. A dark-eyed boy with wings on his heels appears and gives her a message. Laura soon realizes she is at the center of a brewing battle--a battle between the gods and goddesses, one that will shake modern-day Rome to its core.

ApollyCon Featured Author: Tessa Bailey

About the Author

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband of seven years and three-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

NYPD detective Seraphina Newsom will avenge her brother’s death at any cost. Even if it means insinuating herself into a rough, Brooklyn street gang and going so far undercover, she’s not sure she’ll be able to get out. Every minute she spends in their midst means the clock ticking down on her life, especially when she overhears something that could get her killed.

Bowen Driscol is the heir to a crime enterprise. He never asked for the job, but with his father behind bars, he has no choice but to step in and keep the operation running. But when the NYPD blackmails him with a piece of damning information in exchange for aiding an undercover cop, he finds himself on the other side of the law for the first time in his life.

Bowen knows the danger Sera is in, and keeping her safe trumps saving his own ass. The problem? She can’t know he’s on her side. And there's the matter of the seriously inconvenient heat sparking between them that's incinerating his resistance. But Sera only sees Bowen's past, and men like him are the reason her brother is dead. If they're to get out alive, he'll have to risk exposing the man beneath, and hope to hell he doesn't blow the whole operation in the process.

CJ OMOLOLU THE THIRD TWIN LAUNCH EVENT OF AWESOME

I have said this many times, but I will say it again. I am extremely fortunate to love YA literature and live in the San Francisco, Bay Area. Not only am I lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend some amazing YA events but I am also very blessed to have some of the most kind and talented authors of this genre living in the same region. C J Omololu is one of those authors and I had the pleasure of meeting her years ago at her book launch for Dirty Little Secrets. I considered myself luck because it was the first book event that I attended that was minutes away from home but I didn't realize how lucky was until I got to meet CJ because I had never met anyone as kind and generous as her. Over the years I would see CJ at various local events and we would chat about books, family, life and whatever reality TV show had us currently enthralled. No matter what CJ always made you feel special by giving her complete attention and making you feel special and for that I am forever grateful. 

This past summer CJ was diagnosed with cancer and to say I'm devastated is putting it mildly. Being a cancer survivor myself I understand what she is going thru and I would like to help her in any way I can and this is the reason for today's post.  CJ's upcoming novel THE THIRD TWIN is coming out next month and she needs a bit of help in spreading the word about this new YA thriller.  

So, lovers of YA lit or fans of CJ's or anyone wanting to help. Please join us in getting this upcoming novel into as many hands as we possibly can. 



PRE-ORDER THE THIRD TWIN

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
