This is a dystopian romance, more of a romantic science fiction, so it veers away from my previous work a bit, and the cover definitely shows that.
Anyway, here it is!
It's part of a New Reality series put out by Resplendence Publishing and will come out in March.
Here's the blurb:
Julie Gladwell has a secret. Acting as chief attendant for the New Government’s procreation program, she rears girls to carry The Emperor’s heir. Only a few are chosen for the program, called “The Special Ones,” and they are given no names, only numbers. They see no one but authorized personnel until their twenty first birthday. Which is usually when they die. Direct contact is forbidden. As she cares for these girls, no one ever suspects who she actually is.
Scientist Malcolm Odin hated his job and hated himself. Put in charge of the entire human engineering program, the experiments and suffering he witnessed made him sick. Still, it paid the bills and kept him living comfortably in Terrecina. He knew of far too many who’d fallen through the cracks, into the sewers. The Level People, they were called.When he confides his unease to Julie, she lets him in on the her secret and into her heart. What starts as fancy ends in revolution, but how will they choose between their fellow man and each other?
