Simple is the first book in the Simp Series.
Nothing simple is real.
You will look twice at people…and technology.
The idea of making life simple appealed to the mainstream. After the economic collapse of the twenty-first century, the government latched on to technology like an economic life-line. Bio-synthetic humanoids integrated into society with relative ease. Taking on the menial jobs, humans grew dependent on their android counterparts, but the corporate sector took things too far. Wrapped in their one-click comfort zones, people trudged along with their latte’s and fashion trend blinders.
The dark side of genetic engineering is a harsh reality.
Humans are being hunted.
They don’t stand a chance.
No one seemed to notice that they weren’t acting as hospitable as they once had. They should have. They didn’t have weaknesses like we did, and, they were capable of clever, unimaginable cruelty.
Those that have survived call the rogue bio-synthetic humanoids "simps" because the company that started the mess had a cheesy marketing campaign that said they made life "Simple." They couldn't have been more wrong. When the war broke out, simps were used to spare human losses. It was viewed as a brilliant solution until a developer working for the enemy infected the simps with a virus that caused them to turn on the humans they served.
They couldn't shut them down fast enough.
Fans of Isaac Asimov will appreciate this fast past thriller, although the three laws of robotics never applied to simps! This cyberpunk tale is set in the year 2038.
Hailey Pachello doesn’t do people. She relies on herself because it’s easier. It’s safer, and it’s less dramatic. That is until she meets Leonard ‘Gizzard’ O’Malley. Giz has connections and a plan, and it might just be a good one.
Join Hailey as she embarks on her perilous adventure, in a timeless, powerful, and memorable cyberpunk thriller.
Real is the second book in the Simp Series.
Nothing simple is real.
A little over a year ago, there was no trace of civilization and most people survived by living on the run. Hiding from the highly developed synthetic humans that claimed their place at the top of the food chain. Mankind’s cyber-genetic counterparts were designed to make life less complicated, but Lee Pachello knows that nothing simple is real. Life is not meant to be simple. It’s meant to be challenging. It’s meant to be harsh at times.
