Book Description

In A Right State by Ben Ellis

The Indie Book of the Day for 25th of October, 2014!

Genre: Literary, Humor

Your information is being sold. And guess who’s paying for it?

It’s 2066, and living in a country where big corporations are constantly undressing you with their spies isn’t much fun for Duncan. He remembers the days when information was protected, not sold to the highest bidder. When his illegal organic vegetable trade is discovered at the bottom of his garden in the town of Wigthorn, the tomatoes really hit the fan.

Amy works for Pharmara, the biggest pharmaceutical company in the UK, analysing user data. Yes, it’s as boring as it sounds but she believes a little corporate access to personal information is a small price to pay to live in a post-tax, post-carbon, post-poverty world.

After all, if you’ve got nothing to hide, you’ve got nothing to fear … right?

Poppy lives in Shaded Vale, a town rich enough to stay off the radar. Her father has some big plans to shake up the industrial power balance.

Thrown together by circumstance, Duncan, Amy and Poppy become tangled in a dangerous quest for truth with Pharmara Security hot on their heels. But if knowledge is power, how is it that those in power are such idiots?

Read Sample

I’ve always been creative in my spare time.  As a teenager I used to write bad poetry, then learnt the guitar and wrote bad songs and when I’d finished dredging the depths of dullness I  got interested in writing.  Parallel with this creative outlet was an interest in philosophy, sparked by ‘Sophie’s World‘, and I completed an evening A-Level course in the subject in 1998.

When I was 28 I got a job (internet marketing) in the US and lived in Detroit and then Miami for over 3 years.  This opened my eyes to political, social and cultural differences between the US and UK, compelling me to think about writing a novel based on what I could see and ideas of how things might progress.  This resulted in ‘Railroaded’.

I’ve also written some short stories for some competitions and magazines which have been sent out.  When they come crawling back having failed miserably, I’ll put them online so you can see why.
