The Treemakers: Book one in the YA Dystopian Scifi Epic (The Treemakers Trilogy – 1) by Christina L. Rozelle

Sixteen-year-old Joy Montgomery, daughter of Zephyr the Magnificent, the great magician, can only reminisce of better times. Before the Superiors. Before the uprisings. Long ago. Before the dying Earth ripped the family she loved away from her. She can only dream of the adventure life must’ve been before their ancestors brought the apocalyptic devastation in the form of disastrous climate change.

In this desolate dystopian future, the Greenleigh orphans are “privileged” with the task of building mechanical trees for the post-apocalyptic survivors in Bygonne, so their world behind The Wall can breathe another day, and so the Superiors may continue their malevolent reign.

Lured by a yearning for freedom, tenacious curiosity, and hunger for adventure, Joy discovers hope and magic amid the misery, and power in her promise to care for those remaining, whom she loves enough to risk her life for. To save them, herself, and the boy she adores from the abuse and slavery by the Superiors, Joy must entrust the aid of an unlikely ally who harbors a dangerous secret.

With an intriguing stranger at the helm, Joy and the treemakers embark on an intense and terrifying, yet liberating quest for the truth about the existence of the forbidden paradise beyond The Wall.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

“Loved this book so much, from the very outset I knew this was a book for me that would immediately be all encompassing. For the few days that I was reading it I was totally invested in this dark world of terror and fear and it was all I could think about, for a long while I thought about the long suffering and selflessness of the main character Momma Joy, and how she pushed herself forward at every challenge. This dystopian setting had echoes of the misery of Orwell’s ‘1984’, it had the pace of action films such as ‘The Fifth Element’ or ‘Twelve Monkeys’, and I felt there was a little homage to ‘A town like Alice’… The Treemakers has the punch, detail, and depth of all of those combined. The realism was sublime, moments of realisation relating to Joy’s past really hit deep, made me smile, truly resonated within me, the darker moments too are just as hard-hitting, and make this book a dizzying rollercoaster of emotions.

I cannot recommend this book high enough, it is an energetic, carefully written adventure into a world that could be, a place that wouldn’t be out of step in our nightmares, and full of characters that you are willing them on to succeed with every page. An absolute triumph of a book, utterly entertaining, I wish there were more of them… and I get the feeling there will be in the future. Absolute brilliant read.”

“The Treemakers” is an impressive debut from Christina L. Rozelle. Set in a dystopian future and after a cataclysmic event, the story is centered on the symbolically named, Joy, who lives in a world that is anything but.

Joy is a central figure in the work force of “Bygonne”, which primarily consists of children. Working for a shadowy group, the children are slaves, charged with producing metallic trees in order to sustain oxygen for their world. In Bygonne, people figuratively and literally, struggle to breathe.

The children are, however, as much a commodity as the materials they produce. Devoid of caring adults, Joy becomes the mother figure, trying to sustain some humanity in a world that relinquished it some time ago. Spinning hope, love and magic through her stories, Joy attempts to make sense of a world full of dangerous secrets.

In Bygonne, however, hope, love, and magic can get you killed. So, too, can emancipation. Told from Joy’s first person narration, “The Treemakers” is part environmental-warning and bio-punk. I’d recommend this work for readers of Young Adult and dystopian narratives.

This was a compelling read and at times, I longed for more information and backstory, but I am sure all secrets will be revealed in good time. Roll on the sequel!”

Trust Issues: Manage the Anxiety, Insecurity and Jealousy in Your Relationship, With 10 Simple Steps – 5th Edition by Jessica Riley

Trust Issues: Manage the Anxiety, Insecurity and Jealousy in Your Relationship, With 10 Simple Steps
Free bonus! Get limited time offer, Get your BONUS right NOW!
Are you tired of failed romantic relationships and friendships? Have your previous partners told you that you are “too possessive” or “jealous”? Do you feel yourself burn with jealousy when you see your partner talking with some attractive acquaintance? Do you go through your partner’s things or demand detailed explanations of where they have been?
Most people know this isn’t the foundation for successful relationships, and they would like to stop reacting this way, but how? Author Jessica Riley outlines a 10-step plan for overcoming these hang-ups in her new e-book Trust Issues.

Riley pulls no punches here – she gets straight to the heart of the problem from the first chapter. She addresses right from the start your thinking process, which is leading you to exhibit your possessive behavior.

However, Riley is careful to explain the difference between our thinking and our actions. If that sounds too obvious, remember that your goal is to decrease the actions you’re taking that are toxic to your relationships (the thoughts you are having may not feel good, but the problems with your partner don’t start until you start acting on those thoughts).

Trust Issues begins with some questions for the reader’s personal reflection, so you may want to have your journal handy as you read. These questions will start you on your journey to improved relationships with some knowledge about yourself.

Armed with the answers to these questions, you can move into Riley’s chapter on why you have difficulties believing what you’re partner is saying to you. This will be a huge chapter for you if you’re struggling with over-possessiveness, because your partners statements (“I’m working late tonight,” or “That was my mom on the phone,”), are often the flashpoints for conflict. If you want to see instantaneous improvement in your relationship, follow every word of this chapter, and you will have it!

But Trust Issues is not a band-aid solution: Riley takes you into the dangerous process of comparison with others – an almost universal issue for those that suffer from repeated bouts of jealousy. She offers a brilliant strategy for handling it, too, which is yet another takeaway from Trust Issues.

Many of you will get to Riley’s chapter entitled “Be Prepared to Lose Your Partner” and think, What?? No, that’s not what I want! But do not despair. In this chapter, you are about to learn one of the most valuable secrets of human relationships there is!

Riley also includes a chapter on how to recoup from losing your cool when you see with your eyes behaviour in your partner that you do not like and is setting your jealousy meter in the red zone (and that’s when the real crises happen). She clearly outlines what to do, and just as importantly, what not to do.

Do you often imagine your partner cheating? Riley’s book has you covered there too, with an entire chapter devoted to getting your often fictional thoughts under control. Wouldn’t you rather think about something else anyway?

The Curtain – A Novel by Patrick Ord and Dave King

THE CURTAIN – A NOVEL SYNOPSIS:Have you met Henry Maddox? He knows you — not personally of course… he really only knows your data. But from that data he actually may know you better than you think you know yourself. Henry knows where you’ve been and what you’ve bought. He knows all of your friends. Henry not only knows your behaviors, he understands your tendencies. And from those tendencies, he can predict what you’re going to do before you’ve actually done it. Who is Henry Maddox? He is a 21st century marketing consultant and he specializes in highly personal and irresistibly persuasive advertising. Henry’s strategies combine modern data mining (Big Data) techniques with other advanced and controversial marketing practices (Market Fragmentation, Cross Promotion, and Conglomerate Propagandizing) to the point where consumers don’t even know their being sold. Businesses love Henry because he not only moves product, he actually controls their customers. But when Henry is forced to face how his techniques affect real people, he realizes he has inadvertently given corporations the power to destroy society for their own ends.THE CURTAIN explores the effect that increasingly sophisticated marketing techniques have on communities, families, and individuals. In an age of digital distractions, who remembers the transcendent morality that has allowed past civilizations to prosper? When corporations have the influence and motive to define people by what they consume, are we as individuals losing the substance of who we really are?THE CURTAIN is entertaining, fun, thought provoking, educational, and frightening. Ord’s storytelling is brilliant and his research extraordinary. THE CURTAIN is a must read for anyone that watches television or movies, listens to the radio, accesses the internet, logs into social media, has a smart phone, participates in loyalty card programs, or uses GPS technology. In short, THE CURTAIN is for everyone.
