Weevils - junior/ young adult near future fiction

Hi folks! Long time no visit for me! (I started this site up many moons ago).

I'm still living in country Victoria - hence the absence.

I've dropped by because I've written a book which I thought might interest the people on here.

It's a junior/ young adult fiction near future science fiction adventure story.

It's set in a world with 3 degrees of warming, where fossil fuels are no longer available, and 7 corporations have basically taken over the world (because they have all the power). It's set in Sydney, which now has Brisbane's weather, and the economy is post-carbon sustainable.

I hope you're all well and healthy.

Here's the link (you can buy as a Kindle, or it will also read on a normal tablet or phone).

I hope you enjoy it if you have a read

Best wishes

Scarlett

A lot of members were deleted 2 years ago to keep numbers and costs down.

Dave it looks like almost 1000, although that's no indication of whether they're active. There's a total if you click on the members section.

Hi Christa - yes, I'm still gardening, although I'm in Victoria now, and currently reduced to a few pots in a rental :(
I put up a blog post yesterday with the wicking beds i built at my last place if you want to check out what I've grown recently. I put in fruit trees too - had apricots, almonds, quince, apples, olives.
I love the Mediterranean climate here but I really miss Brisbane too :(

Hi Scarlett, Are you still gardening, you gave us some great gardening hints in the past. Monsanto is a dirty word to me. It must be one of those companies taking over the world in the book.  Good luck.

Re: 'puttering along'. Maybe, Andrew, you could share with Scarlett (& me + whoever) the number of current members of BLF?

Awesome - good on you! So happy it's still going after all these years - 12 now! Amazing. Yay.

That's fantastic news Scarlett.  Good for you!  We are still puttering along here.

NB it's a short-ish read at about 35,000 words and costs $4.24 to download. I'd be thrilled to receive reviews (warts and all), that's how your book gets more reads in the algorithm. 

And for your info, the 'baddy' in this is Malerdo's program to genetically engineer wheat plants (Malerdo is sick earth in Spanish, and is a thinly veiled reference to Monsanto haha)

cheers SJP
