Are you concerned about the destruction of the planet and our survival?
Are you a fan of Social Science Fiction?
Do you believe that there are forces at work, more powerful than ourselves, that don't have your best interests at heart? Oh, yeah... And do you like animals?
If so, read on.
Our Survival is not a zero-sum game
We are worried about our future and we decided to create a series of novels that explore some of the most pressing environmental, social, and technological issues of our time - through satire.
Why satire? Because some of us don't like to be lectured to. Frankly, the end of the world is a bummer. Sometimes, humour is more effective at getting the message across and helping one another to comprehend the magnitude of what's at stake without causing mass hysteria.
And, besides, going on an adventure is more fun than sitting in the library, or watching "An Inconvenient Truth" without chemical help.
This book is FREE on Amazon from Sept 27 - 29!

"Endangered Species" is a satirical, action-adventure, social sci-fi series from the SEAM Writers Room, led by Vaulte Kamish.
We are offering you - yes, you - a PREVIEW COPY of this controversial new work in the hope that you will enjoy it so much that you spread the word to other enlightened individuals like yourself.
Warning: For Mature Readers Only!!
We're going to be honest. This book isn't for everyone. Reviews are very split. You're either going to love our first book, or you're going to hate it. There's not much in between.
Why? Because it's satire. Which means that it's going to take you out of your comfort zone and, quite possibly, mess with your head. The characters are kooky, the action extreme, the situations 'complex'.
The book contains extreme satire, caustic social commentary, gratuitous violence, and scenes of a graphic nature. And there's a twist in the title itself, which some people fail to realise (apologies, if you are one of those people).
If you like South Park, Tropic Thunder, The Daily Show, Thank You For Smoking, Terry Pratchett, Hunter S. Thompson, and Dr Strangelove - you're going to enjoy this book.
If you don't like those things - please, please, please DO NOT READ it.
Now, that's out of the way...
Book 1, "Diary of an Eco-Warrior", follows the adventures of intrepid but unfortunate, animal-tracker, Chuck Collins, as he travels the globe to save endangered animals from extinction. Problem is - Collins is a disaster magnet. Animals hate him. And they can't wait to tear him apart.
Dogged by the epic failure of his safari-cum-amusement park, Animal Land, he desperately needs to resurrect his career before self-loathing consumes him. His producer puts him on the trail of vicious creatures in peril - hoping that something catastrophic will happen on camera and boost ratings.
Reality exceeds expectations, however, when the hapless crew are caught in a cross-fire on their first expedition. Heavily armed poachers appear to be kidnapping exotic and dangerous animals for sport.
"My name is Chuck Collins and I'm on a mission from Gaia."
Inspired by a higher calling, Collins leads his crew on a fast-paced adventure to scupper the poacher's plans, but ends up uncovering a larger conspiracy to save the planet by nefarious means.Buy Now from Amazon
A free excerpt of the book (chapters 1 - 20) is also available:
We are currently in the sixth major "mass extinction" event in Earth's history, precipitated by our own behaviour, and time is running out. In addition to mass extinction, the story examines the highly secretive food industry and its ecologically disastrous, industrial farming practices. Will mankind go extinct before it's too late?
Our story is full of action and adventure, framed by Satire. Less "An Inconvenient Truth" and more "Indiana Jones meets Tropic Thunder".
This series introduces critical environmental and social issues in a highly entertaining way. By engaging the public in topical debate through entertainment, we hope to make learning (and saving the planet) both exciting and fun - rather than overtly "educational". We hope to inspire dialogue amongst people not normally engaged in this subject matter. Ignore it at your peril!
