Sample Saturday: James Keeling

Glad y’all could make it to Sample Saturday!

This week we have James Keeling joining us and sharing a sample from his novel, Compensating Controls.

James is a working writer living in the frozen tundra of Minnesota.  He has four lovely daughters and spends the remainder of what little time he has being a computer professional as well as a writer.

Compensating Controls- James Keeling

“Everything is going great for Nicholas Edgwood. He has a job he excels at, he has a new girlfriend, and he has hope for the future. Karma can be a cruel mistress.  When he gets framed for a cyber-crime he did not commit, he must run for his life while his entire world crumbles around him.

He may not be the biggest and baddest guy out there, but he has skills, the kind garnered from a career steeped in computers and code. Now he must leverage these skills to their fullest to stay above ground and breathing. It will take all of his talent, and courage he may not have, just to survive.”

War between the west and Islam has been raging. We meet BC on his latest assignment: Assassinating Meredith McEntyre the Governor of Lunar Prime – the non-aligned city-state on the Moon!”

So, with that said let’s get right to this week’s writer: JRD Skinner!

J.R.D. Skinner is a writer, podcaster, and ne’er-do-well, from Toronto, Ontario. For unfathomable reasons he releases fiction thrice weekly at FlashPulp.com, and spends an inordinate amount of time telling children things they shouldn’t know.
