SORT BY Relevancy
Tears of Paradox author Daniella Bova returns to Writestream with Daria Anne to discuss her new release, The Notice, the second book in her series, Storms of Transformation.
Daniella Bova was born and raised in Chester County, PA in a traditional, loving family. While she and her sister were young, their baby sister - born with Down Syndrome - died at the age of three. This traumatic experience changed their family forever.
Painfully shy and called a "Day Dreamer" by her mom, Daniella was what some would call an "average" student. Although she had difficulty paying attention in class, at home she was an avid reader and learner. By the age of 10, she could sew by hand and machine, embroider, and knit. In the late 70s, she came of age and married her high school sweetheart.
Years later, the pivotal events of September 11, 2001 would prompt her to see the world differently. She started paying attention to politics and national/international events, which ultimately led to the inspiration for her dystopian series.
Join us for a great interview with Daniella Bova!
Pt 2- IS AI- MAPPING OUR FUTURE OR OUR EXTINCTION BY 2020 ?
SparkNotes: FAHRENHEIT 451 - Ray Bradbury
Guy Montag is a fireman who burns books in a futuristic American city. In Montag’s world, firemen start fires rather than putting them out. The people in this society do not read books, enjoy nature, spend time by themselves, think independently, or have meaningful conversations. Instead, they drive very fast, watch excessive amounts of television on wall-size sets, and listen to the radio on “Seashell Radio” sets attached to their ears. / http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/451/summary.html
Internet of Everything /
The Internet of Everything (IoE) is ushering in many firsts, but its legacy will be measured in the lasts it creates - the last blackout, the last recall, the last traffic jam.

In the second hour, stay tuned for Public Service Satire with the Right Wing Riot!
Self Reliance: There’s now no shortage of ‘green options’ for us to choose from and we’ve been given the impression that as long as we behave in certain ways and buy the right products, we’re doing the best we can. This simply isn't true. And is in fact the slippery slope that leads right back into the system we are intent on escaping. The goal is to buy less. Use what you have. And apply pragmatism and common sense.
We reject it because of its inherent inequity, lack of thoughtful design, and it's inevitable self annihilation. The farm and it's residents have set out to redefine what resistance to the system looks like. No longer will we fight the battle for quality of life, for the survival of our species, in the streets of the urban dystopia. Whose streets? Goes the chant. Not mine. They can have them. Those streets are the capillaries and arteries of the machine. The machine that is steadily churning this world, our environment, our humanity, steadily down the conveyor belt towards the end.
No longer will we have our heads busted In by the lackeys and jack boot thugs of the barons. Pepper sprayed point-blank eye lids pried open by leather gautlets; hog tied and dragged down the street face bouncing on the concrete; ridiculed by the goose necking mindless minions watching their televisions and pointing their fingers. No longer will we be incarcerated for exercising our right to peaceful civil disobedience. Conveniently forgotten for an extra week or two in a putrid, dank cell, for a simple misdemeanor. No longer will police thug batons meet their mark. Have the streets. They're yours. We will be in the field, in the workshop, in the development center, building something new. Something better. For I have finally learned, destruction and creation are mutually exclusive; they cannot be undertaken simultaneously. This is the totality of Revolution.
Can't get enough dystopia? Tune in to Writestream on Tuesday, September 16 at 1 p.m. Eastern when Dariaanne welcomes Tracy Lawson, author of the 5-star rated novel Counteract, to the show:
The Office of Civilian Safety and Defense has guarded the public against the rampant threat of terrorism for the last fifteen years with the full backing of the US government. Their carefully crafted list of Civilian Restrictions means no concerts or sporting events, no travel, no social media, no cash transactions, and no driver's licenses for eighteen-year-olds Tommy and Careen. The OCSD has even outlawed grocery stores, all in the name of safety.
Now, there's a new threat-airborne chemical weapons that could be activated at any time. But the OCSD has an antidote: Just three drops a day is all it takes to stay safe. It's a small price to pay for safety.
Or is it...
Dariaanne will chat with the multi-talented Tracy about her latest book and amazing writing career, which began in high school. During the live show, host and guest welcome your calls and comments at (347) 945-7246.
In the second hour, stay tuned for the Right Wing Riot with The Luminaries of Liberty - Scary Smart, Ms. Always Right and The Prince of Whitebread. It's Public Service Satire we can believe in!
See you on Tuesday, September 16 at 1 p.m. Eastern for Writestream with Tracy Lawson and the Right Wing Riot!
Please welcome Mord McGhee author of Ghosts of San Francisco (Tales of Eclipse Book 1)
Sep 24th, 6:47pm
Bio: 2014 SILVER GLOBAL EBOOK AWARD IN SCIENCE FICTION Mord McGhee has quietly entered the international world of science fiction with his unique and twisted tales that fly beneath the banner, "IT'S NOT DYSTOPIA TO THINK HISTORY WILL REPEAT ITSELF." Mord is a retired rock musician and has been called the "Heavy Metal" of literature. His writing is a wild blend of Sex, Drugs, and Rock'n'Roll-Science Fiction. From frightening technology to grim battle scenes between street gangs... ...From secret societies bent on ruling the world to a gritty day in the life of a mechanic hundreds of years in the future... ...MORD MCGHEE is blasting the genre with a Marshall Stack. Jamming science fiction with brash, loud, in your face prose. Mord's influences are eclectic. Steven Brust, Steve Alten, George R.R. Martin, H.P. Lovecraft, Philip K. Dick, Stephen King, George Orwell, Glen Cook, Robert E. Howard, J.R.R. Tolkien, and H.G. Wells are his literary tastes. Mord's hotly anticipated second novel, "MURDER RED INK," is an exciting new look at an old murder mystery that we know today as JACK THE RIPPER.
The Web has been all abuzz about Viv, the new personal assistant agent from the creators of Apple's Siri. Word is that Viv will be able to do "anything you ask."
Even if that proves to be a little on the optimistic side, there is no question that we are in the early stages of a new era of persoanl digital assistants. What are we currently doing for ourselves that we soon won't have to? And what will our new assistants provide to us that was never available before?
Tune in and explore.
PLUS (Time permitting): Dystopias. Who needs 'em?
Tonight our very special guest is Pamela Tartar.
Pamela and her husband David are the purveyors of the internet radio station Pure Momentum Network where Pamela and David host three shows: Critical Mass, Factor Nine and Hash Method and Pure Momentum is where you can also catch Deborah Tavares and her show.
For tonight’s discussion I asked Pamela to take us through two mind control programs deeply embedded in most Americans known as patriotism and authority. Our talk was wide ranging with Pamela offering a very frank assessment of where we are and what needs to be done to break the programming and set humanity free.

Can't get enough of the dystopia genre?
Tune in to Writestream Tuesday on August 26 at 1 p.m. Eastern when host Dariaanne welcomes Ordinance 93 author Lilia Fabry to discuss her timely and haunting debut novel:
With the blessing of the 55th President of the United States, the newly formed Office of Familial Equality promises to end all the nation’s problems including poverty and illness with the Family Protection Act. The only catch is all pregnancies must be registered and approved.
All eyes turn to the first person to break the law, Justin Winters, an electrician suddenly turned subject of national attention. Joining him in the escape are the women known only as Spring, Summer, and Fall as they work together to run from the bureaucracy and national spotlight that pursues them.
Once the secretary of the OFE learns Winters has tested positive for causing multiple unregistered pregnancies, he comes after him full force, as the future of the Act rests upon if and how Winters and the women are brought in. Their successful defiance would lead to more defectors, their capture providing an opportunity to make an example of them all.
With little more than the clothes on their backs, the four set off on a quest for freedom and to keep the identity of the mother a secret. Most of all, they are running from an ordinance in the law which threatens what they hold most dear.
At 2:05 p.m., the Right Wing Riot takes over with their unique brand of "public service satire." Join us!
