What if you could ride a real flying jetbike in an exciting race through fantastic virtual worlds?

What if you could connect your mind to the cloud for some heart-pounding vicarious thrills?


Get in the car.

As a member of the independent streamers guild, Lucid is always on the prowl for the latest crazy stories. She wants nothing more than to claim the top spot of internet fame. But the popularity of the indies is a threat to the villain's dominance. Echo Chamber Media controls the feeds in Home City and will do anything to stay on top.

When Lucid joins a team in a mixed-reality tournament that will determine control of the local channels, she sets off a chain of events that puts everyone in the city at risk if they lose.

Can Lucid win the game? Vanquish the villain? Change the world? And get her shot at living happily ever after? Will her ragtag group of local culture jammers prevail over the global corporate echo chamber of despair?

It becomes a race to the finish when the greatest threat of all steps into the arena and challenges Lucid to her very core.

Would you be ready for a moment of absolute clarity?

- wholehearted heroes
- cartoonishly evil villains
- cotagonists to friends
- hopepunk futurism
- big grin fun

If books like Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, Warcross by Marie Lu, Neuromancer by William Gibson, and Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson give you a rush because of the virtual reality, amusing plots, and enjoyable characters, then Story Teller may have some thrills for you!

Each of the Hopepunks novels is a complete standalone story that arrives at a satisfying conclusion. The main characters in each book do not continue into the next one as the main characters. However, all the books share a common story world, some recurring characters, and a similar plot structure with a similar set of main characters.

Note to Readers:

All the Hopepunks novels include a moderate dose of political-social satire from a far-left blue point of view. If you are far-right red and you don't like politics or social commentary in your fiction, then move on. This is not for you, and that's okay. If you are deep blue to open-minded purple, then this could be a fun ride. For example, if you appreciate the satire of It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis and Candide by Voltaire, then there may be some additional laughs for you here.

Absolutely NO AI-generated content is in the text! The cover is created from paid-for and licensed images and fonts. However, I will be using synthetic voices for the free audio chapters. As that technology advances and sets up payment systems for the training data, I will subscribe to the payments system so the originators get paid.

Start reading Story Teller here. Every chapter will eventually be free to read.
