Just a friendly reminder and invite to all to join me on G+ tomorrow for my first ever Hangout On Air for my virtual book launch of my #InArk tale about a woman living in the future, who gets abducted by an eco-survivalist cult group. Is Ark the problem or the solution to climate change? For the live broadcast from my home in East London, I'm planning some SLAM poetry and a reading. It kicks off at 10 AM EST | 2 PM BST. And in the evening there will be a fantastic party at London's Victoria Park Books, including music by DJ Tunesmith, nibbles, drinks and cake! I'd be honoured for you to pop on by and help me celebrate! Cheers. https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/cem2e8ndid07ll3ki83fhjcvbjs

Join me to celebrate the launch of my first book 'In Ark: A Promise of Survival', now available for Kindle, and in paperback, from Amazon. In this futuristic tale, a woman gets abducted by an eco-survivalist cult called Ark. Is Ark the problem or the solution to climate change?

My book is getting 5* reviews on Amazon and elsewhere, and provides a speculative fiction look at our future living with climate change and how humanity may need to survive in the face of this eco-dystopian environment.

On this Hangout On Air I'll entertain you with some SLAM-poetry, do a reading from my book, and talk about why I wrote the book and pursued self-publishing. I'll also answer any questions you may have.

#InArk joins a rising literary genere called cli-fi (#clifi) exploring themes of climate change in fiction.

By the way, I am utterly terrified to do this! It will be a very new experience to be live on air for all the world to watch. I hope viewers will be entertained, and offer kind feedback.

This Hangout On Air is hosted by Lisa Devaney. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
