BookTrib Q&A: A Futuristic Talk Jordan Philips, Author of ‘Futura: A Novella’

in Fiction by

Dystopian fiction that gives us a bleak view of humanity like The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner series, and The Handmaid’s Tale are at peak popularity. Perhaps this is why Jordan Phillips’ new work, Futura: A Novella seems like it’s coming out of left field. Rather than harsh climates, or totalitarian government regimes where people are fighting to survive every day, Phillips’ novella gives us a utopia that celebrates humanity. Paris 2050, has evolved to a futuristic Nouveau look, unlike the rest of the cities around the world which have turned into ultramodern metropolises. Even in France technology is everywhere, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) has integrated into a society known now as Invisibles. Ruby, an American woman, has just left her long-term relationship, and…

‘Each Life Can Teach Us’: Bestselling Author Steven Gaines on Memoir Writing

in Non-Fiction by

Why are so many people writing memoirs? Expiation? Ego? Money? Revenge?  One reason is that access to social media has given the average citizen the misimpression that people care what they had for lunch. Andy Warhol was wrong when he said in the future everybody was going to be famous for 15 minutes. The future is here, and everybody is famous for 15 seconds, the length of time it takes to write a 140 character Tweet, or to post a vacation photo on Instagram, or catalog moods, movie reviews, and bad affairs on Facebook. The ease of publishing Print on Demand books, and ebooks, has given all of us a shot at being Proust.    A while ago I rang…

in Non-Fiction by

Altair Gobo has a unique way of looking at money, financial planning and wealth: He sees similarities between money management and the game of golf.

Boys Like #GirlBoss; Girls Like Cars and Money

#GirlBoss

I just graduated, and like many of you facing a big turning point — surprise! — I don’t have it all figured out. So, like any red-blooded male facing something new and difficult, I pulled myself up by my bootstraps, put my nose to the grindstone, and picked up a copy of #GirlBoss (Portfolio, 2015), a look at Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso’s unconventional path to becoming a multi-million dollar, entrepreneurial success story, and how other girls can use their individuality to find their own path to success. OK, so it’s not what I had in mind, but my girlfriend promised it was “really good,” and you can only watch so much Netflix before you question your sanity. So, without further…
