In 2019, I spent a year interviewing top geneticists, astrophysicists and microbiologists while writing a sort of feminist-futurist book (think chic-lit meets cartoony academese). The book is largely about dating life in New York City, circa 2020, but I wanted to tell the story through the eyes of minerals, and their anthropomorphized trajectory over the last 13.77 billion years or so. Through reviewing publications and speaking with top scientists, I attempted to grapple over phenomena such as the extreme shrinking of the Y chromosome over the last 150,000 years (!!) and things like "the big crunch", which postulates that, like all things that wax and wane, our expanding universe will eventually make some sort of u-turn towards a lovely kind of retraction. Disclaimer: I am not a scientist, and this book is not a science-fiction nor science Book. It is a heady, humoring novel that is not an easy read (but I do have easy read books coming out in 2021, hurrah!). I hope any reader will enjoy some or all of Anachrome, the novel I'm offering here via download solely by donation. Suggested donation of $10 and upward. Thank you.

One more side note: I hesitated releasing this earlier because A. it is only 1/2 finished in ways (or perhaps it is complete as a half-novel) and B. It is currently self-edited plus C. I wanted to release it as an audiobook. That might happen in the future. 'Til then, perhaps you might read it aloud; it's meant to be one long spoken word melodic poem. Thank you!
