Disclaimer: I was hired recently by an independent author to proof and edit his books, so I do have a certain amount of vested interest in this recommendation. That being said, I won't make any more money if you buy this book; it'll simply help to ensure that he can afford to pay me for the next one.

However, the theme of this novel -- actually a series of books; I am already at work editing the second volume -- should be of interest to all of us as Second Life residents (or former residents, in some cases). It has to do with a virtual world.

It's called The Game, by Terry Schott. It's available on Kindle only, at this point.

Quote:
The Game...

A virtual reality simulation played by over a billion children around the world.

The best players are celebrities, adored and worshiped by countless fans.

Zack is a superstar among players.

His final play may change the world, forever...
The second book, Digital Heretic, should be out in the next couple of weeks or so. I'm close to being done editing that one.

He's begun the third book.

Not only am I his editor... I'm a fan. This is good stuff, Maynard.

Unregistered needs to read this. Pretty sure Unregistered likes sci-fi/fantasy/virtual world stuff.
