Travelling around the world, Alice and some of her team further an international network for the Easy Town Project and the Hub Stations. Travelling with them are the past, personal demons, prejudice and unwittingly the issue of sex.

‘Just so we are on the same page,’ Alice said. ‘We will go on this journey to get a shiny reputation, to meet some of our not yet existing international teams, to see some Hub Stations and to get a better idea of what we have gotten ourselves into?’
‘Yes, that’s us. And in between, we will visit China.’
‘Do you think we will get a chance to see the wall in China?’
‘We could fly over it if you like.’
‘Now I am impressed.’
‘Despite yourself?’
‘Of course.’

Book 1, beginning, at the conference

Alice isn’t happy. Most of her closest allies have gone to London, where they are setting up the new base for the Easy Town Project. She on the other hand is stuck with a diplomatic mission around the world. And diplomacy just isn’t Alice’s thing.

Lucky for her, she encounters some people where diplomacy isn’t required. Some are allies, some villains and some might turn out to be either.


Some of the main characters

Alice Adler, born in Berlin, October 1972, freelancer in photography and web design. She studied business with a focus on finance and investment and some economics. First impression: sportive casual, unruly short dark hair.

Andy Lawrence, born in London, March 1982, programmer. Andy worked for Tom in the US until he joined the town project full time. First impression: sloppy casual, shortish dark hair.

Jazz, born in London, July 1982, security expert and martial arts instructor. Jazz has been with THE for sixteen years and is one of Any’s seconds. First impression: athletic, stern, thick curly mob of short dark hair.

Tom Holbon, born in New York, March 1953, American businessman, programmer, formerly the richest man on the planet, philanthropist, married to Fran Holbon. First impression: business casual, greying.

Jack Harris, born in London, July 1972, famous actor. Jack Harris works internationally and mostly lives in London. He has three children (18, 16, 8) with his ex-wife. First impressions: ‘Bloody hell, I’ve seen this guy on screen.’ ‘Blimey, he’s hot.’

Time, place, reality, genre, rating

Time of the story: 8 July 2016 – 1 September 2016

Places: New York, San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, South Africa, Australia, China, Otaon, Romania, Russia, Berlin

Reality: The story is set in the real world, and there are a few overlaps between fiction and reality. The town in South-Africa, the holiday resort in Australia, the town in China, the Middle Eastern country of Otaon, the villages in Romania and some places in Russia are fictional.

I focused on how the team might experience a location on their very short stays rather than portraying a country or city.

Genre: It’s a mix of genres, and the mix is different for each chapter. There is travelling, adventure, fighting, a bit of a love story, tragedy, a bit of magic, a touch of a fairy tale in Otaon, discussions on political, economic and societal topics and quite a bit more.

Rating: The sex discussions are blunt but should mostly be OK in terms of rating (age 16). If you are uncertain, check with the list of sex-related topics or contact me.

‘What are you? My therapist?’
‘Someone has to be. Also, we got to test our security measures and managed to get you to the meeting and back without anyone on the team knowing what you’ve been up to — except Daria. And you got a brief holiday, including martial arts training with Jazz.’
‘That was cool. I got to try out stick fighting.’
‘That’s the spirit. Now you take that and use it for the job at hand.’
‘You are right. But why do I feel all whiny and restless?’
‘You dislike having no choice. Tom isn’t helping. And most of your friends are in London. Besides, the travelling team is pretty large.’
‘Tell me about it. Tom still talks about wanting to impress. I don’t want us to impress, I want us to get results.’ Alice exhaled and added: ‘So, why do you want to talk to me?’
‘To see how you are?’
‘Thanks. But I’m sure there is something else.’

Payment options

If you don’t want to use PayPal, contact me via the leisure lane, and we will figure out a way that suits you best.

VAT

All prices are the same internationally and include VAT. This means that my earnings differ from country to country while every reader pays the same worldwide.

If the VAT on you invoice is incorrect, please contact me.

Prices

Prices are determined by the word count, a top up for publishing and a universal VAT, hence the fancy numbers.

The price is always the same whether you buy single chapters of book 2 or one of the two halves of book 2.

File format

The default file format is ePub. If you have any trouble with reading the file or if you would prefer a pdf or another format, just send me an email or use the leisure lane.

Amazon

Amazon doesn’t allow anyone to sell Kindle files outside their platform. Since I decided not to work with Amazon, my book is not available for Kindle.

I guess that I am not even allowed to give you permission to convert my file into an Amazon file. So I won’t.

Why the hassle? Well, selling through Amazon would contradict everything the town experiment in my book series stands for.

Data Protection

Your data will only be saved to comply with tax laws, which demand to store invoices for ten years.
No data will be given or sold to any third party.

What’s this all about sex?

Book 2 is about a team, travelling around the world to further an international network for a town experiment. The sex talk is just one in many issues which keeps coming up. You can find a list of the main sex topics included in book 1 and 2 here >>>

When will there be a publisher?

One of the key points in the book series is to rethink the way we do business. This is why I hope to find people who are interested in testing new business models as well as a sustainable approach to publishing. For more, please contact me >>>
