X is for Xenophobia. #AtoZChallenge #amwriting

No, this is not a preachy post on how we should all appreciate other cultures (though we should).  It is my understanding that xenophobia goes much deeper than culture shock and seems to be the resistance to adjusting to the fact that not everyone is like oneself.  Some don’t know the difference.  I am in the process of writing and editing that includes the culture shock one might experience if they went several years into the future.  One character seems to be close-minded about it.  Is she a xenophobic?  I am not an expert, but I had an interesting time creating the culture-shock in my most recent fiction story.   The book comes out in mid-June.  Here is some back story:

If you could take the ultimate escape, where would you go?  In November of 2015, I envisioned just that.  I would go to the future.  Things were a little rough in my family at the time, and I’d often take walks with the dog at night, staring up into the sky at the stars and wondering if I’d be able to visit them in any way other than imagination.  People in my online writer’s groups were going on and on about NANOWRIMO.  I thought about it, and decided I’d start typing a time travel story, but on my own timeline.  From this experience, I do kind of think writing saves my sanity.

At the end of November, I’d typed 30,000 words and had no idea how I’d end the story.  I just started imagining and typing and provided myself the escape I needed.  In January 2016, I took a James Patterson Master Writing class.  Man, I love his accent.  At any rate, I finished the novel by the end of January with approximately 66,000 words.  In the summer of 2016, I gave the manuscript a preliminary edit and had my mother, my first beta reader, give it a read-through.

I’ve recently paid someone to edit it and have had a book cover made.  By mid-June,  I hope to have this sci-fi novel published and available!   If it sounds interesting, please follow me on Amazon at  http://amzn.to/1t3BYGU and sign up for my author newsletter at http://t.co/Gj6d3CXMZq if you’d like to get a free 20-page sci-short story for download.

Way to throw in author promo., I suppose.  I guess I just really wanted to talk about the book.  Happy reading and writing, fellow bloggers!

N is for Norrie. #AtoZChallenge (Ebook free 4/17 and 4/18)!

Norrie is a main character in one of my sci-fi novellas.  We saw her grow up in Made for Me, a sci-fi romance, and now, she is a star of its sequel, the sci-fi coming of age novella, Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes.  Norrie is now twenty-two years old and is a Master’s student of Ethics in Robotics.

Norrie was a character created out of my desire to dream and escape.  In fact, she is everything I wish I was in my early twenties!  In this novella, there is much she sees about society that she wishes to change, particularly, humankind’s technological advances and treatment of a new type of earthly citizen (or non-citizen), and she takes steps to do so.  There is also a little bit of romance in this novella, but don’t be fooled.  This is not a romance, it is about Norrie exploring who she is.

I invite you to view my interview with this main character at https://pamelascanepa.wordpress.com/2016/11/27/rrbc-sci-fi-amwriting-an-interview-with-my-main-character-norrie/

Here is an excerpt:

When asked, What are you most passionate about?  Norrie answers:

I believe man has to be responsible to his creations.  If you create something to be just like you, then you should not treat it like dirt on your shoe.  Similar to the cruelty against animals clause.  They are another living thing and deserve the good treatment you’d want for yourself if they were the ones holding the leash. Some would argue a creation of man is his to do with as he pleases. Well, not when you are using living DNA.

You may view a preview or purchase Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes at the link above for Kindle and K.U. download or in paperback.  In fact, I believe in Norrie and want to share her with the world so much, and she is going to show up later in some of my future books, so I am offering this ebook for free download today and tomorrow to coincide with this post!  Just hit the buy link above, or click this universal link: https://bookgoodies.com/a/B01GNNCHHQ .  If you like it, please follow me on Amazon, for there is much more to come, and won’t you please leave a review as well?

*Please note:  This is second in the series, but can read well on its own as well.

Thank you for stopping by!

**The AtoZ Challenge theme for my blog is “Who I am.” Yes, it’s wide open.  In April, I will blog from A to Z to include little tidbits about me, poems I’ll share, and stories. Each day I will write something based on the next letter in the alphabet.  It’s been fun so far, yet it has really given me a chance to pause for reflection as well.

As you can see, I have doubled up on my purpose in this post! 🙂

Free download of Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes

A young woman misses her dad.  A journey with her mother to fill the space proves unsatisfying. Venturing out on her own, many discoveries are made, and rules are broken.  But that’s nothing new for Norrie.  After all, aren’t some rules worth breaking?

Read about Norrie and her journey in Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes, which is available for free download today through 3/19. A #futuristic #scifi, coming of age novella, hailed as “fascinating and thought-provoking.” Read about Norrie, an average girl with three sets of parents, and what she learns from her search for truths about two of her fathers.

From Reader’s Favorite review:  “Reading Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes by Pamela Schloesser Canepa was a fascinating and thought-provoking look into the future. It is a great novella regarding the prospect of androids having a place in society. As I am very interested in science-fiction that is conceivable and relevant in our reality, I found this book to be a fantastic read. This story gives the reader a perspective that seems outlandish, but is it? Once thought of as far-fetched and implausible, automated machines and drones are already in use and humanoid robots are being used in experiments.”
