Not With A Whimper: Producers


The clock is ticking. Though Larry Clement doesn't know it, he has only 100 days to realize his dream before all hell breaks loose.

Larry has set his sights on the stars, wants to go to space as soon as he turns 19 and can legally escape his father's dominion over him. He will do anything to thwart his father's desire to keep him on the low-tech farm, while others around him go to university, or get city jobs.

With the help of Sandra, his long-time girlfriend and classmate, Larry has covertly engaged in taking tech modules, which will help him achieve his dream. And, if they don't do the trick, there's always The Lottery. A winning ticket would see him on his way to the stars before his father could even raise a finger.

One way or another, he will not live out his life -- however long or short -- as a farmer.

Not With A Whimper: Producers is a 63k apocalyptic, coming-of-age novel set in the Yrden Universe twenty years after Courtesan
Not With A Whimper: Producers is book one of a four book series. The rest are now available and also in KU.

    Merry Christmas.

    As I've just published Books 3 & 4 of the Not With A Whimper series, I thought I'd remind you all of Book 1. The four books constitute the whole series. They run concurrently, so can be read in any order. However the following order is the best -- fewest spoilers:

    Not With A Whimper: Producers
    Not With A Whimper: Destroyers
    Not With A Whimper: Preservers
    Not With A Whimper: Survivors

    Not With A Whimper: Producers, the first book in the Not With A Whimper Series, finds teenager Larry Clement seeking to escape the bonds that his father has placed on him. He wants a life of science; his father is forcing him towards a life of farming. With his nineteenth birthday will come emancipation, but his father has a plan to prevent that, too.

    Unknown to Larry, who wants to escape his father, only an escape from Earth itself will prevent his death in the upcoming apocalypse. And his father has unwittingly given him the key to do just that -- if he can summon the courage and fortitude, and fulfill the responsibilities of a man.

    It's the end of the world, though no one knows it quite yet. Larry Clement hopes for a scientific education; his father pushes him towards farming. Angry and of a natural contrary nature, Larry does everything he can to thwart his father in this respect.

    Unknown to Larry, who wants to escape his father, only an escape from Earth itself will prevent his death in the upcoming apocalypse. And his father has unwittingly given him the key to do just that -- if he can summon the courage and fortitude, and fulfill the responsibilities of a man.

    Apocalypse!

    With time running out for Earth, Larry Clement's father needs to push the young man to get off the planet -- now. Unfortunately, angry and naturally contrary, Larry intends to thwart his father's wishes. And that calls for drastic measures: indenture.

    With only his girlfriend, Sandra, to back him up, Larry must accomplish something no one has before in order to escape the doom that awaits.
    If he can summon the courage and fortitude, and fulfill the responsibilities of a man, he just might make it. Odds don't look so good.

    Not With A Whimper: Producers, the first book in the Not With A Whimper Series.

    Where will you be when World War III begins? If Larry Clement remains on Earth, he will die. His father knows his son's one chance is to head for the colonies, but getting Larry to agree to anything requires a devious approach.

    Larry hates his father, and his occupation as a farmer, but until he reaches the age of majority, he can do nothing about it. As soon as he does, though, his father won't be able to see him for dust. He has already made his plans. But his plans don't include the possibility of Apocalypse.

    Just as he starts to live his life, the countdown for life on Earth begins. Safety lies in the stars, but time is running out for Larry, his girlfriend and billions of people on earth.

    Not With A Whimper: Producers, the first book in the Not With A Whimper Series.

    It all started 20 years ago when Jaswinder Saroya took shelter on the Yrden tradeship Venture. Then, the Family-owned tradeships fought to maintain their position against the all-powerful Trans-Planetary Corporations.

    Now, the Family Trading League rules the spaceways, and stand as a last refuge against the rising tide of insanity that plagues Earth. Larry Clement, a lowly farmboy will need to gain that refuge in order to live when the Earth governments completely lose their minds.

    But he has a long road ahead of him with obstacles that would daunt anyone. He'll need all the help he can get to escape the 'fate worse than death' that his father has in mind for him.
