Hi Everyone, 

I just wanted to let you know that in addition to the paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon.com (http://amzn.to/VVFmAs), you can also find my novels at these independent bookstores: Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, AZ (http://bit.ly/VVFRKR) and Boulder Bookstore in Boulder, CO (http://bit.ly/VVFGPO). I'll be sure to keep you posted as more are added. Thank all of you for your continued support. Wish me luck! – Jason

Wisdom from Miranda: For me, car driving was a waste in many ways. While others focused on the negatives of pollution and petroleum costs, I could not fathom the human waste involved—not the excrement kind; rather, I mean that the average American spends sixteen hundred hours driving a car every year. Sixteen hundred hours of rapt, pointless attention. Assuming other brains work like mine, we each have only a limited number of hours of serious concentration in us each day. If four hours of that shockingly scarce resource are wasted daily on left and right turns, it is little wonder that civilization was waning.

Wisdom from Taruko: While the rich in their San Francisco high rises had to look at Oakland and Berkeley, Berkeley students got to spend their years of education high on the hills rising out of the Bay, gazing at the beautiful San Francisco skyline and the Golden Gate Bridge. All of this beauty without having to pay the rent normally required for such visual bliss. The best “up yours” to the rich was living better than they lived without having to pay for it.

Miranda Wisdom: I remain unconvinced that I had much choice in this “experiment.” So, by way of disclaimer: this is not my hypothesis. When your dissertation advisor tells you to do a bit of research, you do it.

Zhuli Wisdom: Rich and poor look at death very differently. If there is something after this life–another existence of some kind, the law of averages require that if you live now as a poor person, you’d have more chance of coming back in the next life a little richer. When the rich die, they have a greater chance of coming back with less. The rich have every reason to cling to their lives of good fortune tenaciously.

Kodachrome is a novel about a global revolution that cuts across cultural, economic, and geographic divides; a conflict between the forces of rampant greed and demands for fairness and dignity.
The two main characters are extraordinary yet solitary – reluctant warriors who never meet. Miranda Carter is a cloistered graduate student dispatched to meet her estranged Mormon grandmother and examine a bizarre medical prognosis. Zhuli Cai is an unassuming young Chinese army officer willing to give everything to save the members of his unit. He holds a heavy secret.
Miranda and Zhuli are thrown headlong into technological and supernatural intrigue and deceit. They reckon with true impossibilities and face their own worst fears in a world of double-crosses, prophets, spies, presidential candidates, and Chinese revolutionaries.
On its way to a truly surprise ending, Kodachrome will beguile you with thriller-like tempo, the foresight of science fiction, deep social truths normally found only in historical novels, and a plot that you have never seen before – anywhere.
