Compliance release day!

Yes, my book with the business-like and/or kinky title (depending on your perspective) has been released into the wild!

Speaking of the title, I'm busy answering some FAQs for my soon to be revamped website and so I thought I might address the title one right here.

Q: The title for the second book in The Dust Chronicles is Compliance. What's that about?

A: To be honest, we struggled to come up with a great title for Book Two. In the world of the series, the defacto police are called Compliance Officers, or Comps. In the second book *minor spoiler alert* Glory is training to be a Compliance Officer so it seemed like an apt title.
Initially, Book Two was called Shredders. Shredders are the sadistic scab-covered monsters that exist in the world, but since they don't play a large part in the plot of Book Two (there will be more--lots more--about Shredders in Book Three) I didn't think that Shredders would properly represent the story, even though I thought it was an awesome title.

I also like the meaning of the word Compliance and how it fits with some of the themes of the book. i.e. How long will people continue to comply, when the rules and regulations are unreasonable? When do the ends justify the means? And, to risk getting spoilerish, can someone force compliance on others?

Oh and to answer your question: The type of future that scares me is one that isn't safe for my daughter to live in.
