The Starving Years paperback release

The Starving Years PAPERBACK

Imagine a world without hunger. In 1960, a superfood was invented that made starvation a thing of the past. Manna, the cheaply manufactured staple food, is now as ubiquitous as salt in the world’s cupboards, pantries and larders.

Nelson Oliver knows plenty about manna. He’s a food scientist—according to his diploma, that is. Lately, he’s been running the register at the local video rental dive to scrape together the cash for his exorbitantly priced migraine medication.

In a job fair gone bad, Nelson hooks up with copywriter Javier and his computer-geek pal Tim, who whisks them away from the worst of the fiasco in his repurposed moving truck. At least, Nelson thinks those two are acquainted, but they’re acting so evasive about it, he’s not sure how they know each other, exactly. Javier is impervious to Nelson’s flirting, and Tim’s name could appear in the dictionary under the entry for “awkward.” And with a riot raging through Manhattan and yet another headache coming on, it doesn’t seem like Nelson will get an answer anytime soon. One thing’s for sure, the tension between the three of them is thick enough to cut with a knife...even one of those dull plastic dealies that come in the package with Mannariffic EZ-Mealz.

(Amazon delivery estimate of 2-3 weeks is probably inaccurately long, but it's how they've been labeling books supplied by my printer lately. Also, I see I've got the blurb from Magic Mansion on that page...whoops. I've applied to have that fixed ;-)

Hey, I just found a book I could throw out yesterday. (It really was awful.) Maybe you've got a stinker on there ;-)

Sadly this has already been done, to get the boxes of books out of the way :(
Nope, it's ebooks or a bigger place ;)

Woo hoo, that's awesome! Thanks! I really liked writing the story, it was my first foray into a vote-driven plot and I think it stretched a lot of writing muscles for me.
