New Release! This is a two chapter excerpt of a new novella by Maia Sepp.
There aren’t any zombies
(yet), but the world is still at the brink of destruction: It’s 2028 and global
warming has led to rising oceans, crazy weather, and resource scarcity. On top
of that, someone just turned the Internet off. Seeing as how it’s humanity’s
last chance to turn things around manners are, understandably, a bit frayed.
Bookish etiquette buff
Olive O’Malley is busy microfarming her urban property and minding her own
business (and her chickens) when the government comes calling. Their goal is to
push the populace towards carbon-neutrality while keeping kvetching to a
minimum, and they come with a proposal: transition Olive’s popular etiquette
column to a radio show for the masses, and they’ll help Olive find her grandfather,
who’s gone missing.
Olive doesn’t trust the
hipster government officials who try to bribe her with
delicious-but-probably-a-little-evil chocolate pastries, and declines their
offer. (Politely, of course.) But they won't take no for an answer, and soon
Olive is knee-deep in turmoil, eco-terrorism, and missing chickens. Now she has
to untangle herself from their demands and figure out how to make sure her
family (and her poultry) are safe before it’s too late.
