DISCONNECTED by A.K. Adler is coming soon.

 

Luft Books is thrilled to announce the May 2013 trade paperback release of Australian science-fiction author A.K. Adler’s Disconnected, previously available only as an e-book.

“Hi. It’s Rebecca. From last night? The one who so brazenly spilt wine on your jacket? Anyway… Um. Maybe I could take you out to dinner to make up for it. Don’t worry; I’ll still pay for the dry-cleaning as well. I may be the world’s most monstrously oafish person, but I’m no cheapskate. Call me.”

Mark is single and has just started internet dating. Rebecca has broken up with her long-term boyfriend and moved to a new city. When they meet at a party, they discover they share a unique and magical connection–their telephone line. For when Rebecca calls Mark the next day, the message she leaves inexplicably goes back in time three days.

And then things really start to get weird.

Disconnected–a comedy thriller with a twist of romance. And it’s about time too.

Wrong City

WRONG CITY can now be purchased as an ebook (Kindle format) from Amazon for $2.99.

While serving hors d’oeuvres to the beautiful people at a glittery Hollywood party, an aspiring young screenwriter named Vish meets Sparky, a charismatic stranger who claims to be able to do amazing things for Vish’s career. Vish’s attempts to find out more about Sparky set in motion a string of bizarre events, leading to a cushy writing gig on a hit TV series and a too-good-to-be-true romance with Troy, a sweet-natured starlet with a dangerous alter ego.

After Troy dumps him without explanation, a heartbroken Vish tries to uncover what went wrong in their relationship. His quest for answers leads him deep into Los Angeles’ seedy, supernatural underbelly, where struggling artists are a disposable commodity and fame often comes at a mortal cost. Vish finds himself at the center of a high-stakes battle between ancient forces for dominance in the entertainment industry. With a foul creature living in the earth beneath his apartment complex, a vicious coterie of murderous surf bums dogging his every move, and a disturbing lack of trustworthy allies, Vish’s best chance for survival lies with the mysterious and powerful Sparky. Vish must track down Sparky before he becomes the latest victim of Hollywood’s deadly allure.

Bias Cut review

From Publishers Weekly, an independent organization (review based upon an unpublished manuscript version as a part of the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award)

“In this fresh and dark mystery, rising fashion designer Laurie Sparks hires down-to-earth, down on her luck Nicola to research 1980s style and culture. Sparks, an elfish beauty and reality TV personality — think younger, edgier, and flakier Tim Gunn — wonders what next year’s fashion would look like if an apocalypse had stopped design from moving forward back when “Road Warrior” and “Night of the Comet” flickered through America’s imagination. Enter Jonathan, Sparks’s former assistant, who asserts: “I don’t think it occurs to Laurie that there are people…who…don’t want the very best for him.” Sparks’s carefree and careless nature provides the novel a vague sense of dread that is exacerbated by Nicola’s increasing compulsion to protect him, from himself as well as from others. Despite constant warning, Sparks goads Nicola into an ever-deepening pursuit to prove that a world-renowned fashion designer is a hack and possibly a murderer. Snappy dialogue and accomplished descriptions are effortlessly woven into the catty and surprisingly nebulous world of Fashion Week and Emmy Award after-parties. While it addresses a wide range of topics — from the folly of curiosity to the power of innuendo — this novel is also about the fleeting successes that have passed by Generation X and landed on Generation Y, and the anxieties and imbalances such a world view produces. Well done.
