Social Networking at work – I read a random post on a friend’s page from another friend about her new sci-fi book available for FREE download. Curious, I clicked the link and downloaded what turned out to be a good and even inspiring read. A good storyteller with a spiritual dream for a better world, Deborah Pratt’s The Vision Quest, Book One reveals the Earth in the not-too-distant future is suffering from the effects of genetic tampering, over-corporatizing and greed. Freedom is hanging by a thread. There is hope involved, too, in the form of passionate and talented young people, some broad-thinking adults and a “Yoda”- like sage/teacher. The lost continents have risen due to massive earthquakes and storms and polar cap meltings and it is a brave new world, complete with sentient and dangerous robots and the precious and endangered Gnorbs of knowledge, of course.
Deborah Pratt was a co-executive producer and a writer on the Quantum Leap TV series. Book 2 is already out and Book 3 is about to be released. The Vision Quest website looks like a haven for teen interaction, including “transmissions” and online experiences including:
Pratering – a single, focused thought supported by love, organized on a mass level, to occur at a specific time with the intention to create a shift in consciousness and manifest a result into reality. We are the heroes we have been waiting for. The Quest begins now.”
