What if you could predict the future?What if you do not like where the world is heading?What if you could do something about it?Would you fix it? Even if it changes you forever as a person?As a human?Do you have the spine to do what it takes?Do you have the arrogance to play God in these End Times?
This page is for all things related to the 2030 ET book that I am writing. The Prologue of the first “cycle” of the story is ready for release. Please visit the “Shop” page and download a free copy. Please sign up for the Adrian Jonklaas.com and 2030ET newsletter when you download the free copy.
The first cycle of the book comprises the prologue and approx. eight (long) chapters. Together they form a novella (approx. 150 pages or 50,000 words) that introduces readers to the world of 2030, set in the near future. There are two other cycles in development as well as outlines for several more. I most likely will release cycles 1 and 2 as a book (print and ebook/epub) in Fall/Winter 2016.
The website www.2030et.com, will be launched later in 2016. For the moment, it redirects to this blog.
Don’t forget to download the Prologue and visit my blog for regular updates 🙂
Thank you for your interest; it means a lot to me! Make sure to check out my 2030 ET blog posts.
Synopsis for Cycle 1, Chapters 1,2,3:
It is January 1st, 2030; the fastest growing hybrid reality sport on the planet, Arena Wars, is hosting its semi-final event in a purpose built facility on Douglas Island, BC. Arthur Raind, the owner of the Arena Wars franchise and a brilliant computer scientist turned billionaire businessman, confronts a mysterious assassination threat together with Inspector Yilmaz of the RCMP and Justine, Arthur’s Head of Security. Hosting a VVIP function at the event, Arthur also has to deal with the machinations of the powerful businessman, Adrian Thorne, who covets Arthur’s latest technology under research, a neural implant that will interface virtual reality and hybrid reality directly with the human mind. Meanwhile, Alpha One, the anonymous people’s champion from the inaugural Arena Wars event, battles the Chinese challenger, Zhang Jie, in a high tech, high stakes battle to reach the final.
My mid-term goal for 2030 ET is to turn it into a multi-media ebook. From there, a graphic novel and / or who knows what could be next 🙂
I am looking to work with talented artists to help me realize my vision. Please contact me if you think this is you. My preference is to work with upcoming artists who have a small- to mid-size studio or have a few years of freelance experience and a portfolio to showcase their work.
I am very interested in interactive storytelling and am looking to explore this further as well.
